  1. Running Chromium 61.0.3163.100 on 64 bit Ubuntu, I see same as Veselin above. Seems to work on new web version, but as we've established in other threads, the old is better. Firefox seems to work.
  2. Version 61.0.3163.79 running on 64 bit Linux, and I have the problem. Seems to be triggered by the scrolling. After loading the page, I can switch between notebooks and all is fine, but if I scroll any of them a significant amount most/all of the notebook entries disappear from that center column list. if I just scroll a little it's not an issue. E.g., start with "1-10 of xxx" and scroll so it says something like "5-14 of xxx" will trigger the problem. If I just scroll to something like, e.g., 2-12 there is usually no problem. However, if I click on a tag on the left, the center list shows empty right away, but if I go back to a notebook list, the entries return. Puzzling!
  3. I'm another long-time user, and primarily use web interface, as I run Linux and a Chromebook (some also on a corporate Windows box, where I'm not supposed to install software). Old version is much more functional (won't rehash all the areas...) but I am now afraid to do another trial on the new version to avoid risk that the option to switch back will disappear.
  4. OK, thanks for that. I was looking for the narrow, icons-only sidebar. Didn't think about swiping to open it. Still a 2-step process, but the function is there. It even works on the CB, but it requires a very awkward click/drag that took me a couple tries to get to work. Thanks!
  5. @jim232777 thank you for reporting. It looks like a Nexus 7 only issue. We will investigate a fix for this issue. Discovered something interesting--a similar problem exists in the Chromebook "Evernote for Android" app. (Yeah, I know that's confusing, but it appears the Chromebook app is the Android app that's been promoted to run on the CB.) If I use one of my folder shortcuts (under the star icon) on either my Nexus 7 OR the Chromebook (don't have to use homescreen shortcut), it opens a snippet view of the folder in which I can select notes, but still have no "new note" capability. So it turns out it's not just a Nexus 7 issue. System particulars: Nexus 7 2012 edition Android 4.4.4 Evernote Samsung C720 Chrome OS 39.0.2171.96 Evernote app 16.10624.3 (per Chrome's app info) Evernote app 5.9.2 (per the app's settings/support/Current Evernote version menu option, so this must be the android version that got rolled up into the CB app)
  6. akhaku, Thanks for the tip--hopefully we can continue to select default view. Now can we add an option to hold the sidebar open? Multiple clicks to change notebooks decreases productivity. Remember we're talking about a browser interface and not about a phone screen, where the real estate is scarce!
  7. Erico, I go back and forth. In fact, I'm posting this from Chrome (a Chromebook, actually). Chrome does do well for some things, but then I go back to Firefox for certain extensions. Firefox also seems to be better for privacy reasons.
  8. Actually I missed the newest set of notes. Thanks for the heads up.
  9. Since today's "Evernote Team" email was promoting the new "beautifully refreshed" (but crippled) web interface, I was hoping some of this feedback might have been incorporated, so I switched back to beta. Sadly, still the same problems: more clicks, wasted space, and less functionality. <sigh>
  10. Not sure where this has crept in, but I do see this on 6.2 tablet version. If I have a notebook or note, and "add to home screen", when I use that shortcut there is no function to slide out the sidebar to access other evernote functions. It is particularly annoying on a shortcut to a notebook, as I can't access the "new note" function without going back to All Notes first. I'm using 6.2 on a Nexus 7 (2012) with Lollipop (5.0), but as I recall the problem started on 4.4.4. Thanks!
  11. Reading over many of the forum comments (this thread and others), there are many who use the web interface as their *primary* interface with Evernote. Some run Linux (like I do at home), some have particular bugs in the desktop client that interfere with their workflow (not my experience, but everyone uses different functions/workflows), some are in work or school environments where they can't install software, or they share computers (I have that situation to some extent as well), some have other reasons (personally, if I'm already in the browser, I think it's quicker!). All of these people need as much functionality, in as compact space as possible. I am a premium subscriber based to a large extent on the web version. (I do use Android version when I'm mobile, but if near a PC, will use it instead.) I hope all the comments are heard by Evernote, and understand that in order for Evernote to be the "remember and organize all your information" application they want it to be, these customers will require full functionality! That said, somewhere in the forum, someone (don't remember who or where, as I've probably read over a hundred posts this morning) suggested a quick, one-click switch between current-style interface and a newer, cleaner, writing interface. Sounds good to me! Thanks for listening.
  12. Ranting aside, I agree with first couple of posts. Too much white space. I'll go along with an option for less clutter, but give us the ability to use that space! For those familiar with gmail, a long while back they introduced a version with more white space, but fortunately there were choices. I promptly switched to the "compact" option so I could get as much info as possible at one time. Thanks for dedicating a forum section to user input!
  13. OK, another piece of information. The link below gives me the same error I mentioned previously, using the same Firefox & OS versions. http://www.digitalphotomentor.com/the-difference-between-reflective-and-incident-metering-and-how-they-work/ I'm not an HTML/web programming expert, but I can see that both sites seem to be Wordpress based. Maybe a dev will be able to find the specific, common link between them. HTH
  14. Actually, I think it's great that it's in the code. It gives them a readily accessible list of sites known to be problematic, so when a new clipper version is ready for release, they can quickly check those sites to make sure the difficult sites are still handled properly. With multiple developers, one could miss a particular site if they were using bookmarks. Remember, these are pre-release versions (at this point still alpha according to firefox), which means they are known not to be ready for prime time.
  15. Thanks for that info. I'll have to try to get the 33 beta, and also try clipping locally. No worries. I actually got a good chuckle from it, and at least know you're working on the problem! Thanks again.
  16. Mike, That page is one I linked to a few posts up, because it causes problems with my Firefox (Portable) 32.0. (The previous alpha version opened the evernote blog.) I dug into the code, and found a block of links labeled "use cases". Obviously, the developers are using them to test functionality. The line with my link in it is uncommented in the latest Sep 10 version. It is kind of annoying, but it's the price of trying a pre-release version. I'm sure that will be fixed in the final release. While it's open, can you try to clip it in Article mode? The Sep 10 version has problems with FF Portable 32.0, but works in 31.1.
  17. Well, just tried alpha 20, and I still have the problem clipping the previously linked wordpress page, using Portable Firefox 32.0 as before. I expect you already know that, though. It's obvious you've been working on it, as now instead of the Evernote blog opening with Firefox, the problem page opens. Hope others don't mind a dose of scientific Python programming! (firenote-Sept-10\resources\firenote\lib\ui.js line 129 was left uncommented by devs, prompting the tab to open.)
  18. A couple more data points * that article clips just fine with Firefox ESR Portable, v. 31.1.0. * A fresh unzip of Firefox Portable 32.0 gives the same error reported above, so I haven't corrupted it with something in my history.
  19. Well now that's interesting. First the straightforward answers. OS: 32 bit Win7 Pro Clip type: Article (accepted the default selection, and clicked "save" Firefox version: Here's where it's interesting. I noticed the problem on Firefox Portable 32.0 (from portableapps.com). I disabled all my other extensions and tested, and still have the problem. Went to full installed Firefox, which was at 30.0, and the article clipped just fine. Let it update Firefox to 31.0, and it also clips fine. Firefox won't update past this version for some reason. I'm wondering if the full install version is on the "extended release" cycle... So there you have it. There are 2 variables--Firefox version, and portable vs. full install. (For the record, I've never had problems with Evernote running on the portable Firefox.) Thanks for working on this.
  20. All in all, I'm liking alpha 16 from Aug 20. Has lots of potential! Don't know if it's a bug, or an odd website, but here is a wordpress.com page that won't clip with this version. It does clip in Chrome. http://helentronica.wordpress.com/2014/09/04/quantum-mechanics-with-the-python/ I get the following error popup. Well, I tried to paste image here, but forum won't let me. Message says "Error: Error: Cannot read length of binary data" (Yes, the word error is repeated, and there is no end punctuation. At the very least, the double "Error:" suggests something unexpected is happening. Hope this helps development.
  21. There is a way to use the bookmarklet. It's mentioned on lifehacker (http://lifehacker.com/5987539/use-bookmarklets-to-easily-sent-web-pages-to-pocket-evernote-readability-and-more-in-mobile-chrome) and even in the EN knowledge base for iOS (http://evernote.com/contact/support/kb/#!/article/23193638). I generally don't sync chrome bookmarks (as Lifehacker assumed), so I had to set it up similar to the iOS instructions. In Chrome for Android, you essentially bookmark any site (to create the bookmark), then edit the details. Give it a name like "clip to evernote" and paste the javascript code into the URL field. Then you need to follow the Lifehacker procedure to get the javascript to run in your android Chrome on the right page. Note you can't just go to the bookmark, as in Chrome for Android, the browswer leaves the page you want to clip to retrieve the bookmarklet. That's why you have to start typing it into the omnibar and take the auto-suggestion. For completeness, here's the code for the bookmarklet. javascript:(function(){EN_CLIP_HOST='http://www.evernote.com';try{var%20x=document.createElement('SCRIPT');x.type='text/javascript';x.src=EN_CLIP_HOST+'/public/bookmarkClipper.js?'+(new%20Date().getTime()/100000);document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild(x);}catch(e){location.href=EN_CLIP_HOST+'/clip.action?url='+encodeURIComponent(location.href)+'&title='+encodeURIComponent(document.title);}})();Not the best solution, but it works. I don't do a lot of web browsing on my tablet, so it works well enough for me.
