  1. Thank you for the tips - I did not know where all these search tips were hidden. Why not simply make them easy to find with an extra search button. The striving for minimal design in EN loses a lot of ease of use in my perspective
  2. Thank you - I did not know about this - that is a cool feature. Just tried it. Works partially, here is this users experience on iPhone. 1. Tap EN (in my iPhone dock !). 2. Click on "all notes" - the "all notes button" blinks and goes slightly grey. Nothing happens for 1-2 seconds. 3. Then I get list of recent and my full Notebook structure. (Why so much white space here - such a pain to have to scroll all the time). 4. Scroll down (lagging response on scroll). 5. Click on stack needed. Scroll down (again - why is this not dynamic when I have selected it to move up). 6. Find the notebook I need in the stack and select it. Slight delay and then the Notebook is there ("Search in notebook" is nice feature that I might use sometime) 7. Tap on the Tag icon 8. Tap again on the Tag icon as it did not respond first time or maybe my fingers are too big ! 9. Scroll down again (why is there so much white space). This is an iPhone with retina screen, surely the tag list can be compressed so scrolling is reduced 10. Find the right Tag and select it (would be nice feature to have a "Tag and go" button next to the existing one) 11. Press "Done" and scroll down to the note I want 12.Tap (twice) again responsiveness seems odd on the note 13. Edit the title of the note - serious lack of response, wanted to edit the note title and delete one word and add another - when deleting the response seems around 1/2 second or so - so slow that you're not sure it has deleted the character 14. Press on "Notebook stack name" at top of screen to get back to all notes (here it would be good to have a home button on the EN "dock" where the green Add icon is) Seems to me a little convoluted. What would be nice is when on the home screen I hit "Search" icon there should be a new menu that allows selection of Notebooks and Tags. For my personal taste there is far too much white space. I know on the notebook viewing you can change this - I have to the minimum white space possible and it is still probably some 50% of the screen is empty. Would be great to have a "really minimal white space option" that would display more without scrolling all the time
  3. Hi, I'm pleased to see a continuous update of EN for iPad and iPhone. Great also to see an improvement in performance. For me with 10000+ notes this is vital and change of EN app last year (was it to iOS ver 8 ?) seemed to make a big big dip in performance - that was enough to prompt me into exploring OneNote, Notes and Together Today performance seems a lot better, still room for improvement. I have two comments: a. Especially on iPad app - there is a lot of space on left of main screen for useful buttons that are not there. My personal irritation is a lack of search with tags. Having re-structured some 18 months ago or so my notes into a small number of notebooks and lots of tags it would be nice to have a tag menu. I cannot see that option now (no visible tag list in search). Yes, I know about "tag:" search syntax but that also needs me to remember all tags. And, tag menu should really be displayed with my hierarchy that I have setup in tags and not just a flat list. Of course, a programming challenge but that would help paying customers. Would be super to add more of the old functions back in that space. b. I have continual problems between iMac, iPhone and iPad of duplicate Notes. Seems to me the sync function is no longer as robust and reliable as it used to be. Cannot exactly define the problem but I frequently get notes being duplicated when they are first uploaded to EN. I was prompted to make these comments by an email from EN asking for my feedback on the online web service - the online EN is fine - I just rarely use it. Probably spend 80% of my time on the iMac and iPad apps and the rest on the iPhone Anyway, keep on improving it.
  4. Well I'm curious rather than worried. As long as all the notes are available I don't care too much as I always get the max storage on iPhones and iPads. The restore shows the total usage on the iPad going down by the 7 gigabytes and then coming back as the data gets re-synced (all my notes which I keep offline). So, the total on iPad is OK, the usage for Evernote is now wrong. It used to show up OK but now shows 252 mbytes. I agree with JMichael that this must be an iOS bug as otherwise all the various app designers would be hiding their storage usage.
  5. An update: I deleted Evernote on iPad and total usage result on using the iOS reporting (settings - general - usage - manage storage) fell by 6 Gigabytes - about what I expected. Re-installed and left it to sync overnight. The 6 Gbytes came back but EN is still listed as using only a few hundred megabytes.
  6. Hello, I had a quick look and there seems to be no simple way of doing a "full" export. What does work is emailing individual notes into your Evernote account. You should be able to find your personal Evernote email address. Then you can select each note you want to send to Evernote and email it using the share option (top right of each note).
  7. Thank you for the replies. My guess is EN is not reporting correctly to iOS and probably something in a recent version update in EN has changed the storage reporting. It is a guess ! My aim is really to alert the EN folks to some possible weird behaviour in the app. A few weeks back I fully converted in iOS to Photos (from iPhotos) and wondered what the storage impact was on my iPad. When checking I noticed Evernote was at a low few hundred mbytes. Normally it had been at 3-5 Gigabytes. I have all my 8000+ notes stored in offline mode. On both the iPhone and iPad I have maximum storage option so it is OK to have Evernote using loads of gigabytes - I expect that. What is strange now is with the 8000+ notes both devices show Evernote using only a few hundred mbytes. So, something is wrong. My guess is EN is not doing something right for iOS. iOS does seem to be reporting the other apps OK and those using lots of storage remain high on the list (the only change I've seen is EN). For me it's not a worry - I have storage available and I have (it seems) all the EN notes available in offline mode. Again, a guess - in the next or later version of EN it will all go back to being right and EN showing several g bytes of usage according to iOS (as it should do).
  8. Hello, On my iPad and iPhone the menu option for reviewing the storage usage by apps is: settings - general - usage - manage storage Evernote used to show up here as one of the top users on my devices with about 3 gb. Now it's just showing 291 mb on iPhone and 479 mb on iPad. I am a premium user and have downloaded all notes for offline usage. All the notes appear to be downloaded and are available for use when the iPhone (or iPad) are in airplane mode. So, it seems all the 8000+ notes are downloaded on both devices. Looks like iOS (or EN) does not report the true usage of Evernote. Anyone have the same result? Thanks, David
  9. Oh, and could you please add this option also to the iOS apps (iPad and iPhone).
  10. You have added to the View-Sidebar menu in the Mac version of EN an option to turn off "Recent Notebooks" in the sidebar. Could you please do the same for the "move" note window that pops up when you want to move a note. The reason I ask is I have a short Notebook structure which I know in my head. Every-time I use the "move" note option the list of Notebooks available changes (due of course to the recent status). This addition of recent notebooks list causes my short Notebook structure to extend beyond the popup window and not be full visible. So, I have to scroll down. I'd simply like an option to remove this (like already for the sidebar)
  11. Regarding EN for iMac. I'd like a small additional option: please have an option to toggle on/off the recent notebooks for the Move command (you have this now in the View sidebar options). When you select a Note to move to another Notebook the recent list appears first (OK) and for those of use with a small list of Notebooks and stacks this recent list makes a visual change to the known list of Notebooks. What this means is each time the recent notebook list changes the list of possible notebooks to move to also changes. It's a small thing but would improve the usability for some of us. Not urgent by any means. Please work first on maintaining good quality and higher speed !
  12. I also was keen to see the new iMac version when 5.6 was announced. I gave up waiting after over a month - the Mac Appstore version which is still today at 5.5 and took the plunge and deleted the Appstore version and downloaded the direct version. The process was remarkably easy. I did back up the notes as with 7000+ notes I did not want to download them again. Was not necessary as the new version migrated the existing notes. Was all very smooth. I note that Skitch has been updated several times in the past few weeks in the Mac Appstore. So, looks like there is some problem with Evernote in the Mac Appstore.
  13. Feedback. I like the new 5.7.2 version on iMac. I have two suggestions: 1. Ensure the context feature does not include the same note as it is referring to . 2. On the "Move Note" option in iMac include an option to NOT have "recent notebooks". I have a simple Notebook structure and this changes graphically in the "move note" option each time I use it (of course, since I use different notebooks). The result is every time I use "move note" I have to look and think about where the target notebook is. This is a minor issue but a small ease of use option.
  14. Brilliant - thank you so much. This makes life much easier. One improvement suggestion is to add Tagging option.
  15. Oh, one other thing. May I suggest, as the earlier contributor hints, that Penultimate changes its terminology to be aligned with EN. A "notebook" in Penultimate is actually similar to a "note" in EN.
