  1. Thank you so much for your help I actually put hard coded tags into my notes when I migrated from EN to nvALT (basically keywords with a "z" added at the beginning so they could be filtered easily) but I removed them when I moved back to EN. Should have known better I think what I'll do is stick with EN and hope that either I find out what's causing the problem or that a future update will remedy it. In the meantime I'll build up ON as Plan B. With 1000+ notes that'll take a while anyway.
  2. Thank you very much Grumpy I already have my notes organised alphabetically by title / key word, but with 1000+ notes I found searching by tag the most convenient option.
  3. Unfortunately my experience has been the opposite: ON just works while EN often doesn't. I believe my needs are fairly undemanding: I want a digital notebook or filing cabinet that can handle a large amount of (mostly) plain text notes, that is clearly laid out, easily searchable, multi platform and syncs fast and reliably between these platforms and collaborates well with other apps. UI niggles aside, when EN works it is pretty much exactly what I want but there are ongoing issues. Capturing and syncing text between devices can create weird formatting issues, URL links in notes are randomly converted to plain text and my most used action - search by tag - causes EN to crash on iOS (yes, I tried uninstall / reinstall etc but no joy). ON has a lot of shortcomings for my use case - no custom tags on Mac / iOS and the web clipper only captures static images - but there are workarounds and formatting and sync have been rock solid so far. Having migrated from EN to plain TXT notes and back again, I'm wary of migrating yet again but I'm seriously considering moving to ON. Shame.
  4. The web clipper has been flaky for me in Safari ever since it got updated with all the related notes etc stuff. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't and since Yosemite it has been dead. Enabling the dev menu (many thanks for this workaround!!!) worked for me. The other thing that seems to be working is an old javascript bookmarklet: javascript:(function()%7BEN_CLIP_HOST='http://www.evernote.com;try%7Bvar%20x=document.createElement(SCRIPT');x.type='text/javascript';x.src=EN_CLIP_HOST+'/public/bookmarkClipper.js?'+(new%20Date().getTime()/100000);document.getElementsByTagName('head')%5B0%5D.appendChild(x);%7Dcatch(e)%7Blocation.href=EN_CLIP_HOST+'/clip.action?url='+encodeURIComponent(location.href)+'&title='+encodeURIComponent(document.title);%7D%7D)();
  5. I'm still using the previous version of EN on iOS 7 but only as backup. I'd love to be able to use EN on all my devices, but 90% of my notes are text and I don't want to have to simplify every note to minimise EN's formatting bugs, plus the main functions I use (search/sort, edit, tag, append) are too cumbersome on iOS, so I've gone back to using plain text notes. Currently I use nvALT on my Mac synced with a plain text app on iOS (currently Notesy due to the handy append button, but I also like Notebooks). To create notes on my iPhone or iPad I use Drafts and then save the note both in the folder that syncs with nvALT and in EN via URL scheme. To clip from Mobile Safari or Reeder/Mr Reader I save the article in Pocket and then share/export to Drafts (for text notes) or directly to EN (for web clippings). If you want to stick with EN and don't need offline access I'd also recommend Clever, although I haven't used it in a while so can't vouch for how well it works on iOS 7.
  6. Unfortunately, I am afraid we seem to have lost the "list-y" snippet view. Does this mean there's only card view now? After all the complaints about missing list view in the previous version? I had just started using EN again after a long time with plain TXT files and haven't updated yet (and won't if it means losing snippet view).
  7. I tried Feedler Pro but despite its claims that it cashes feeds for offline reading I could never get it to work, so personally I wouldn't recommend it. BTW Reeder is apparently working on a post Google reader solution.
  8. Same here, but now also with Reeder for iPhone. Today I had to logout and when I tried to log back in again it accepted my login details (unlike Reeder for iPad) but save to EN still "failed". I'm pretty sure it worked before the recent EN password reset. I haven't updated either apps or my iOS version recently. As a workaround, you can still email articles from Reeder to EN, but obviously this isn't how it should be. [Edit] Not sure if this is related since I'm still using an old version of EN but who knows: http://agiletortoise.com/blog/2013/3/1/evernote-52-and-drafts-login-issues.html
  9. Same. Also can't reconfigure IFTTT workflows. [fixed] logging out and back in plus re-authorizing 25 mobile apps and services to Evernote. Still not working for me with Reeder. Logged out and in and deleted/re-entered EN login more times than I can count. Seriously annoyed. Also, I never received a notification email. I found out when EN desktop told me that my password was invalid.
  10. I can't save anything from Reeder for iPad to my reset EN. No problem with the iPhone version but on the iPad my login details keep getting rejected. I tried everything, including reinstalling the app. No joy.
  11. I make extensive use of both, but in very different ways. Evernote is primarily a note taking system. DropBox is primarily a file management system. Same here. The folders and files that in the past used to be in the "Documents" directory on my computer now live in Dropbox, so I can access and edit them and create new documents even when I'm travelling. EN does the same for my notes.
  12. I would prefer the vertical list view because then both the list, as well as the selected note, run all the way from the top of the screen to the bottom. Therefore you can 1) see more notes in the list, and 2) see more content of the selected note. Computer screens are almost letterbox format nowadays, so unless your notes have very long titles I don't see the benefit of having a short list run all the way across horizontally, cutting off most of the selected note, instead of having a longer list run vertically. My primary view is the snippet view, though. Firstly for the above reason and secondly because I like to see a few lines of body text (but only a few lines, i.e. NOT card view) in addition to the note title. I never use the card view or horizontal list view.
  13. Going by these forums at least I don't think you're the only Mac/Apple user who wishes for more of these crucial things.
  14. To be honest, I don't think we should have to make a case for something as basic as sort options that are available in the nearest comparable client. I guess I just don't understand why the Apple teams feel we don't need them and the Windows team feels we do. At least up to now, Windows still being version 4.x.x.
  15. OK, so I exaggerated a bit but what I meant was the principle that the iPad is becoming a more compelling alternative and I therefore find it hard to understand why the iPad version is still the weakest of all EN versions. I know of course that due to OS limitations it can never be as feature rich as the desktop versions. Adding too many features may even be counter productive if it slowed the app down too much, but there seems no good reason why its functionality shouldn't be at least a bit closer to the Android version. For example, why are there so few sort options and why is the search box so small in EN 5? It seems more cumbersome than it needs to be.
