  1. @everBlueApple, if you've been a long-time EN clipper user, you'll note that ver 6.2 is more like the previous versions before ver6 in that it the UI isn't as cluttered and has a more streamlined user experience. As a long-time user of clipper through several iterations, I welcome this change as do many others. The workflow with ver6 was not as good as 6.2. Too many clicks too far away on screen to get the same job done.
  2. Thank you Evernote for bringing back the intuitive functionality of the old clipper with this ver 6.2 update. The universe is back in alignment. Food tastes better. My kids are better behaved. I've started brushing my teeth up and down. I'm using my turn signal. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. That was a frustrating interlude with version 6. Please don't do that to us again.
  3. @jbignert Can your metrics discern which version of the clipper is being utilized to support your statement of increased usage? I am using ver 5.9...I've tried the new one several times. I want to like it but the UI is too intrusive and cumbersome for me and I don't need the mark-up features. Have you considered publishing the old version as EN Web Clipper Lite? Giving users the choice. Since it already exists, would it require much development maintenance to keep up the lite version? Thanks for chiming in on this board. It's nice to know someone is listening.
  4. Thank you Eric. Well put. But is anyone at EN listening?
  5. Thank you for posting the old version. I installed ver 5.9 of the clipper. The old version is so easy to use. After one click the user is presented with: Title Notebook Tags Comments Choose the type or accept default and save. Done.
  6. The value of EN lies in its elegantly simple and effective workflow. When you published the original clipper, you increased the valued of EN by much more than the tools by themselves. The clipper is as important as the repository itself. You may not have realized this when the clipper was born, neither did I, but now that my workflow depends on it, I realize how integral the clipper has become.
  7. Kazum makes an excellent point. The clipper may not receive the same rigor of testing that the desktop application may undergo, but for me the clipper is a necessity for my workflow. So much so, that without it, Evernote as a service is much less valuable to me as a customer. Another point...even if the product as is now published was thoroughly tested for functionality, that doesn't imply it was tested for usability. The testers may be tasked with verifying that the latest feature from developer does indeed work, but that feature set or product design may be flawed. As for the posts suggesting the development team is simply giving us customers what we asked for, maybe only a vocal minority asked for these features. Gleaning input from the user base should be performed in a scientific manner. Maybe this is what was done and I'm in the minority of users that prefer the old version, but seeing the number of complaints, especially on the Chrome web store makes me think differently.
  8. New clipper is combination Toaster and Blender all-in-one. We didn't ask for a swiss-army knife version of the web clipper. The new clipper combines the capabilities of a screen capture and annotation tool with the old clipper. The problem...I already have an excellent screen capture tool in Chrome, Awesome Screenshot: Capture and Annotate, which is easier to use than the new clipper and allows saving to outside of Evernote as is useful when performing a screen capture for incorporating into a report, emailing to someone with annotations, etc. This new clipper adds noise to what was an elegantly simple tool to clip content to Evernote for later reference. Maybe this tool should be published as a screen capture tool but that space is crowded with great tools like the one I mentioned. You had a great mousetrap, please bring it back.

  10. Is this thing on?
