  1. Send an email to Evernote works! That's great. Although it's a few steps, that's a good way to take a note completely hands free.
  2. I'm a huge Evernote user and fan, and also hugely disappointed by Evernote 10.0. Its lack of features makes Evernote 10 unusable. (For me, these include no keyboard shortcuts and not being able to move the shortcuts to the top of the app.) If Evernote renamed version 10 as 10 beta that would go a long way toward inspiring confidence.
  3. Last week, when I said"Create a note in Evernote XYZ" the note was created and saved in Evernote. Now that doesn't work. Notes are only saved in Google Keep.
  4. That's correct. I have a few key notebooks that I always sync for offline access, which Evernote lets me do. With all the other alternatives, I have to choose either to sync no data or all of it. And all if it is a lot. For that reason, none of the Evernote alternatives appeal to me.
  5. As far as I can tell, none of the major Evernote alternatives let you selectively sync notebooks with an Android phone. (I don't know about iOS.) Like other other long time Evernote users, I have a lot of notes, which take up many gigabytes of space on my PC. If I were to sync my entire notes database with one of these notes app, it might use a prohibitively large amount of storage on my phone. Alternatively, not syncing at all slows down note loading and means that I can't access notes without a data connection. I hope I'm wrong, but as far as I can determine, these apps don't have selective notebook syncing: OneNote Joplin Notion Zoho Notebook* Nimbus *Zoho is the only Android app, other than Evernote, that lets you quickly write a note from the notification bar.
  6. One limitation to Joplin seems to be that when it comes to keeping notes on your device, it's all or nothing. There's no serve/cloud access. My Evernote database is 14GB, which would take up a lot of space on my Android phone and especially on my Chromebook.
  7. There's one drawback I've noticed with Joplin. All the data is stored on your local device, be it a PC or phone. If you have a large notes database it's going to take up a large amount of storage. I was hoping to try Joplin on my Chromebook, but my data file is over 14 GB, which eats into my Chromebook's storage.
  8. I've only been using Joplin for about thirty minutes, so my exploration is still in the early stages. I'm not a fan of markdown either. You can turn markdown off and use the WYSIWYG editor, which is more like Evernote. But when you turn Joplin's markdown editor off, you see this warning: "This is an experimental WYSIWYG editor for evaluation only. Please do not use with important notes as you may lose some data! See the introduction post for more information. TO SWITCH TO THE MARKDOWN EDITOR PLEASE PRESS "Code View"." Joplin has many features I need, but, unlike the Android version of Evernote, Joplin doesn't give you the ability to add a note from the notification bar.
  9. I just started exploring Joplin. Thanks. Compared with OneNote and Notion, Joplin is a lot less complex, easier to use, and more like Evernote. I also like that the Android app was updated just a few days ago, always a good sign. I'm still hopeful that Evernote 10 will be as feature rich as Evernote 6.
  10. I'm exploring Notion, but some of the features I love about Evernote are missing from Notion: Notion doesn't let you create a note from the notification bar in Android (creating notes quickly is important to me) No OCR No location tagging of notes created on an Android phone Notion's create a new note keyboard shortcut in Windows (control-N) conflicts with Google Chrome Notion doesn't have an "all notes" view The Android app doesn't have the ability to create photo notes (though you can share a photo with Notion and add it that way) I'm going to continue to use the legacy version of Evernote for awhile. It works fine and I hope that over the next few weeks, Evernote 10 will become more like Evernote 6. I've been an Evernote Premium user since 2008.
  11. I agree. Fast note creation (with keyboard shortcuts) is something I do in Evernote at least a dozen times a day.
  12. I was delighted to learn that Google Assistant now works directly in some Android apps, including Evernote. You can create a note in Evernote simply by by telling Google Assistant "Create a note xyz," where xyz is the note. (If you have more than one note-taking app on your phone, you may need to say, "Take a note in Evernote xyz.")
  13. I'm not ready to abandon Evernote, but even on the list of what's coming next to Evernote 10, I don't see keyboard shortcuts. I create a new notes and paste into notes all the time in Evernote 6. I'm looking at Notion, just to be safe, in case Evernote 10 doesn't become complete. Notion's different and far from perfect. (For instance, the Android version of Notion doesn't have the ability to quickly create a note from the notification bar.)
  14. I noticed, this, too. There's now an extra step for deleting a note in Evernote 10. The lack of shortcuts and other features has made Evernote 10 slower and more cumbersome to use than version 6.
  15. I love Evernote and have recommended it far and wide. Coincidentally, like you I've been a premium user since 2008. Evernote 10 for Windows disappoints me. It's a step down. It's less functional than Evernote 6. For instance, shortcuts can't be put at the top, many Windows shortcut keys are gone, fewer notes are visible at a time.
  16. With a sigh, I reverted to the legacy version of Evernote. I expect Evernote will improve and evolve, but, like others, Evernote 10 was slower on my Windows computer than Evernote 6. I also can't do without the keyboard shortcuts, create a new note and paste text into a note.
  17. I found this registry tweak keeps the taskbar from flashing when I open a new note or paste into a note 99 percent of the time: https://www.thewindowsclub.com/disable-flashing-taskbar-buttons-windows.
  18. That was the missing ingredient. Thanks. I've recently switched from a Windows PC to a Chromebook, so a robust, fully-featured Evernote web client has become even more important to me. I see more web features are coming and I'm looking forward to that.
  19. I'm using the new Evernote web client in Chrome, but don't see an option to create a template after I start a new note. Can you help me? I see this: Thanks.
  20. To put a number on it, the last note I opened on my Pixel 3 took 21 seconds to open.
  21. I've noticed a significant delay in opening notes on my Pixel 3, including in notebooks that are available offline.
  22. One man's bug, is another's swarm of spiders. 😉 OS feature or bug, it would be nice to find a cure. One possible cure would be for new Evernote windows to always appear on top. If that were to happen, I think that the Windows taskbar would not be popping up. I've followed the threads about this other topic --getting Evernote to open a note on top-- and, this, too seems to be in a state of limbo. For some, notes open on top; for others, including me, notes sometimes open on top (in that case the taskbar doesn't pop up), and sometimes they don't open on top of all other windows. I oten use another notes program called Notezilla because it mimics post-its and lets me stick notes to my Windows desktop. When I create a note using Notezilla, that note always appears on top of other apps, and never summons the taskbar.
  23. I use Deskpins to pin a note to my Windows desktop. It's not a perfect solution, but it works just fine: https://efotinis.neocities.org/deskpins/
