  1. My offline downloads are going backwards. Previously, Evernote was consuming 4.8 GB of storage. Today, EN is consuming 3.0 GB of storage. All notebooks are offline, pretending to download. I have 383 GB of free space on my iPad, so free space clearly is not the problem.
  2. That is a good point. It’s a shame that iOS EN cannot use my Mac as a cache and simply pull the notes from there. It is powered up on the local network.
  3. I am starting to convince myself that this is both an issue with iOS and with Evernote server capacity. A year or so ago, I had an issue that required uninstalling Evernote on the iPad, reinstalling and then downloading. I had expressed concern to EN support that a download would take a while, some 75 GB of data. Support told me it would happen within a few hours. I left the iPad on and the app in the foreground and let it rip. Within three or four hours, it had downloaded everything, sustaining about 100 Mb/s of read rate. Based on that, my current 112 GB database should easily download over night, especially considering that my internet now supports 1 Gb/s of download speed and the wifi can sustain 300 Mb/s to any single client. Last night I set out my iPad connected to power with EN in the foreground. It ran for about 12 hours. At the start, iOS claimed EN was using about 3 GB of storage. This morning, iOS claims that EN is using 28 GB. I monitored network usage that showed the download rate varied from 0 to 260 Mb/s. Often the connection was idle and at other times it hovered around 10 Mb/s. From this, I am concluding two things. 1. iOS only really lets EN download effectively when the device is unlocked and EN is in the foreground. 2. EN servers are so overwhelmed right now that they cannot sustain the traffic necessary to provide quick downloads.
  4. You are correct. The first six years I used EN I did exactly that: predicting which notebooks I would need when I lacked reliable and fast connectivity. It happened often enough that I was unable to predict what I would need and when I could connect that during my last hardware refresh, I opted to pay the extra $100 or so for additional storage and decided just to keep a local copy on the iPad and iPhone. From that moment forward, I never found myself needing a note that was not downloaded. That is, until I installed this version.
  5. Agreed on Magic Keyboard support. I recall that the following functionality was present in the previous version but is now missing: Command N creates a new note in the current notebook in the old but not current version Drag and drop of photos in split screen no longer works. I used this daily but it now seems to do nothing
  6. This summer I bought the Raven Original document scanner that provides sheetfed scans, OCR, and drops straight into Evernote with no computer in the middle. This has forever changed how I think of scanners, making all of my previous sheetfed scanners feel like artifacts from a bygone era. I have scanned thousands of pages this summer with it. Buy the Raven scanner and never look back.
  7. I came here to say the same. I switched to the new version a week or so ago. I love the improved speed and am starting to get accustomed to the new interface, but am struggling with downloading the notebooks for iPad and iPhone. I have 19,980 notes, a dozen or stacks and several dozen notebooks. The current database size is 110+ GB. I am unsure when or if both devices will finish synchronizing.
  8. The auto-refresh feature bit me today. I was searching for a note with a PDF (referencing it in an email), found and opened the PDF, found the information I needed in the PDF, then switched to the email to continue writing. When I returned (less than 20 seconds later) to Evernote, it was back to the top of the search results. I had to scroll down past several dozen notes, find what I previously found, re-open the PDF, then scroll down the PDF to where I previously was, which was somewhere around page 40. By the time I found the right information in the PDF, I had forgotten what information I needed, so I switched back to the email to reorient myself. Then I switched back to Evernote only to see that yet-again, I was at the top of my search results. If there is a better way to do this, let me know. Similarly, I regularly find myself needing to view several PDFs at once. The only workaround I found is to save them individually to the iPad and then delete them when I am done. That seems wasteful.
  9. I have three devices that automatically sync my entire Evernote database. EN sync logic is very good, but depends on a solid internet connection for all devices, something that is not always available, especially when traveling. Right now I am traveling with such poor WiFi and LTE coverage that some notes are taking longer then a day to upload from one device, and then can take even longer to download to the other town 8devices. Ideally I could make any change on any device then all three devices would sync among themselves via Bluetooth or other local technology. Then, when any one device has good internet connectivity, such as taking my phone to a coffee shop, that device would sync with the cloud. When I then bring back the phone to be near the other two devices, they would automatically sync to the phone, even though those other two devices may not have good internet connectivity. If nothing else, this would reduce internet and Evernote network traffic from users with multiple devices.
  10. I did not realize until now that there was a way to sort by title. All of these notes are titled with the date in sort order, e.g. 2019 09 21. That certainly fixes this issue for me, yet leaves me wondering why the iOS version of EN kept this capability out of the software.
  11. In general, I agree, but I am fighting this right now. I have a set of notes that are sorted by created date, going back many years. Today I edited an entry from yesterday by adding an attachment that made the note too big. I immediately removed the attachment so that the note size is currently maybe 7 MB (containing five paragraphs of text and two photos), but the information says the note size is 406.3 MB and it refuses to sync. I tried duplicating the note, hoping the duplicate would be the correct size, but it also claims to be 406.3 MB and refuses to sync. I copied the contents to a new note and intended to change the create date of the new note to the old note’s creation date (yesterday), only to learn that I cannot change the new note’s creation date to yesterday when using the iPad. Now I am stuck waiting until I am back in the office on Monday so that I can edit the creation date with the MacBook. Right now this seems like a silly restriction.
  12. I want to second this request. My use case is a little different. Right now when I am in a meeting and taking notes, on my desk I have a sticky pad. If something occurs to me about the meeting itself, I will jot it on a sticky note so that I see it. For example, while Mary is explaining the next quarter estimates (and I am taking notes), I might realize that once she is done I need to clarify with John who will follow up with the supplier tomorrow. There does not seem to be a graceful way to keep taking notes in EN while jotting down this random thought. When I write an actual sticky note on the desk, it is there staring at me and I will remember to ask. Ideally, EN would have a translucent sticky note in a corner that is visible even when EN is in full screen on the Mac, and have a hotkey to cycle between the sticky note and the note I am writing. When a random thought hits me, I could immediately switch to the sticky not, jot it down, then switch back to the EN note where the cursor is still in the right place.
  13. I want to second this feature. I have a set of web page scrapes for an online book from my university that I am reading. I accidentally made a change to a note. While I think that I pressed CMD-Z enough times to undo all changes, the note is showing a different version in the history. There seems to be no way to verify that I preserved the original note. I installed Xcode and the tools to run opendiff against the two versions, and it showed me the attached screen. The changes continue for several pages. Are the notes truly different? I really don't know.
  14. That was very workaround-ish but it did work — I thank you. Chrome was able to view it, and to post it to Dropbox, which in turn was able to open it in Acrobat Reader after I renamed it (Chrome gave it a generic name). Oddly, I could not open the EN web app in Chrome. That seems like a needless restriction. Thanks again
