  1. I think the elephant in the room is more than just the editor, but the overall experience using Evernote as a Windows user. Evernote looks beautiful on Mac and iOS, but looks like ***** on any Windows laptop made since most laptops in current use were bought. It's just not a good experience, and so I have used it much less than certain other cross-platform note-taking tools. As a premium user since of over five years, and as a user who's been signed up for beta for some time, I'd really like to see some progress toward a better UX for Windows users. That's what I don't see happening in the beta process, as much as improvements to the craptastic editor.
  2. Thank you for at least getting this out. I think full, true hi-dpi support is beyond overdue, but this compromise is needed and I think, for most, welcome.
  3. This feature is rolled out, and you can access it in the "File Format" option under the settings menu.
  4. Actually, there is. My understanding (I could be wrong...) of Mac is they get hi-res support for free with Cocoa. All they have to do is create an image@2.png for each image.png. In Windows-world, we have to pore thru several hundred thousand lines of code and translate every place where we said "draw this 3 pixels from the edge". Because pixels are bad. (And several of win-devs do have hi-res machines also.) That would be a good explanation, if Evernote was still some kind of start-up that couldn't afford to hire PMs, UX experts, and coders to get the job done. But Evernote is a mature company that sells a diversified brand and gets WSJ articles about its IPO plans. "But it's haaarrrrrrd" is a pretty high school excuse for a company with transparent plans to challenge Microsoft and Google in the productivity space.
  5. +1 to how badly Evernote needs to move its Windows client into the 2010s. I have a 3200 x 1800 13", and Evernote looks terrible on it. I use Evernote mostly on my Windows laptop (rather than my iMac desktop), and I won't be able to justify resubscribing to premium if the Windows Evernote client is still so uncomfortable to use.
  6. +1 for this suggestion, and a giant THUMBS DOWN for people who give Evernote quarter for crappy UX by accepting and sharing stupid hacks with OP-acknowledged deficiencies (like fuzzy text). As a premier user, it's just insulting that Evernote hasn't published a visually appealing, high DPI-friendly Windows desktop client.
  7. I've submitted a ticket and will PM you the ticket number.
  8. Scannable could change the way I work. But it crashes after capturing the image about 80% of the time so it's almost unusable. (iPhone 6+, iOS 8.1.2)
  9. First, I have to give mad props for listening to the community. Y'all really set a high bar for listening and following through with a quick addition. But sadly I also want to point out that once I've enabled the PDF setting, Scannable crashes four times out of five after capturing the image. So multi-page PDFs are almost impossible to make. (iPhone 6+ running 8.1.2)
  10. Another vote for single page PDFs, with an option to choose between a document and a picture (similar to how I can slide between a document, a post-it, a photo, etc within Evernote). If I have to use Scannable, odds are that it will almost always be for a spreadsheet or something that I need to get into somebody's hands, as a PDF, about fifteen seconds ago.
  11. I'm pretty aggravated at the big diss that Evernote has been throwing at Windows users by holding off on this update. It's not like this is a productivity tool, or anything, and it's not like we're talking about the version that people use on their computers when they want to actually accomplish anything...
