  1. Well, I've about had it with Evernote. After the Mac Client bugs (typing and selecting text being intolerably slow), which took months to fix, I went to the web client. Then, after using the Evernote web client for a few weeks I thought I had lost a ton of work I did today on a text document. This made me panic and worry that I had lost a TON of work. After going back to the original machine I worked on and then checking my desktop version I noticed 3 OTHER files of the same name. I then realized the web client is saving MULTIPLE COPIES. The desktop client doesn't work this way, so why does the web client??? So, I hadn't actually lost the work I had done, it had just been saved in one of the different files in the file list. It was like the web client was trying to do some sort of version control and recording multiple versions of the same file, but without actually doing version control. It resulted in multiple files of the same name. This was confusing and broken. It boggles my mind that Evernote still has such rudimentary problems. This doesn't instill me with any confidence. I'm going back to Google Docs for all my note-taking for now. This was the last straw. Yeah, some of you think I'm overreacting and that this is trivial, but when my work is at stake, my livelihood, I'm not going to trust my work with such a shoddy platform with silly bugs like these. It has taken time to erode my confidence in Evernote, by the way. First, you guys add to the Evernote bloat by adding features nobody wants (slideshows? work chat? wtf? Constant "popups" for these unwanted features in "case we forgot", especially in the iOS versions... They are almost constant.), then Evernote continues to ignore feature requests by Evernote's most passionate users (see forums; per-note / per-book passwords, and encryption, as two simple examples), then the bugs in the Mac client (intolerably slow typing, and slow character / word selection via keyboard), and now this bizarre "versioning" bug that made me panic and think I had lost hours of work. Who knows what other bugs there are in the different Evernote clients or the back-end service. And who knows if one of them WILL actually result in data loss next time... For now, I'm done with Evernote and not looking back. You've lost sight of your users and no longer listen. You've tried to act like Apple for too long and proven you can't do it. Your eyes are no longer on the ball. I should have known this was the case when you guys released "Evernote Food" (wtf was that about, anyway??). There are simply TOO many other cloud-synced document and file editors out there that WORK with capable and dedicated software teams who listen. Evernote is no longer "the best". Not by a long shot. I'm not going to re-check this post since I'm not here to convince anybody of anything nor am I here for anyone's approval. I'm simply letting you guys at Evernote know what my experiences have been and what the results of them were for me. Also, there are too many intolerable Evernote-sanctioned obnoxious trolls on these forums, so I will not waste my time with their garbage either. Hope you fix your collective *****. See ya.
  2. I've unsubscribed from this thread because of Lykoz the troll. I haven't read her replies. Please do something about her.
  3. Agreed, Jack, thanks for your reply! Edited by mod
  4. Not, not in the sidebar, I've already hidden that and everything else I could. I'm talking about in the top bar. I dont see any announcements in the top bar? I am confused on what you mean. How is this so hard to understand? The radar dish icon in the top bar... It is for Announcements and Notifications of shared info. Either way i should be able to remove it if I don't want announcements or use shared notebooks (which I don't). But this isn't even the point. My point is that we should be able to customize the top bar, like in virtually every other Mac app... I am pointing this out to elaborate on why I think Evernote is missing these basic features, while adding other useless ones (work chat, slideshow, shared notebooks) and stepping away from a good user experience. The lag and slowdowns only highlighted all this for me. Try just keeping it simple, refer to my other post about focusing on ONE thing and doing it well, above. This is what any business leader will tell you these days: do one thing and do it right.... Well Anouncements in the side Bar... Is completely different to the "radar" you are referring to... The announcments is about promotions... As the Evernote Employee clearly told you how to get rid of it... The radar gives Notifications not Announcements.. As you can see there could have been confusion as you were referring to notifications as announcements.. When describing subtle features this can create confusion. And in my personal opinion the radar, with announcements is extremely important. Even though you dont use workchat anouncements etc... If I ever did send you something... And had your email, and sent you or shared something on Evernote... I would like to know that it would pop up in your notifications. Now I get that you NEVER collaborate with Evernote with anyone... But if half the people I sent stuff to, did not have notifications.. And the other half did... Well it would impact my experience severly... So I think people can deal with a little radar picture... And get over it... If nobody ever sends you anything... Your notification radar will never light up.. lol "get over it"? Really? You missed my point, again... Anyway, I'm talking to Evernote, not you. I'd rather not argue with a zealot, I'm just expressing my opinion, which I'm beginning to understand is not welcome here. tldr / or for people who have reading comprehension problems like "lykoz": Please let us edit the content in the top nav bar like virtually every other Mac app. Thanks! Now, I'm done feeding the trolls, please carry on peacefully.

  7. And since we are talking about 6.0.5. WHY can't we "customize" the top bar yet like virtually every other Mac application out there? You are FORCING us to see "Work Chat" even if we don't use it? No amount of forcing me to see that is going to make me use "Work Chat", no matter how great you think it is. I simple do NOT NEED IT and I will never need it. This is a NOTE TAKING app, not a chat app. Or "Announcements"? What gives? Do I really need an icon dedicated to "Announcements" from you guys EVERY TIME I open Evernote?? I seriously do not. That's what marketing emails are for IF I choose to subscribe to them... When are you guys being acquired by Microsoft? Because you are starting to think just like them...... Hopefully you guys will start listening to us (your loyal users), because there are now FAR too many multi-device note-taking apps out there to choose from....
  8. +1 Yeah, this is ridiculously bad. I'm going to guess it is a memory leak, because it this definitely gets worse the longer the app is open... PLEASE FIX!!!
  9. It's true. I guess I'm just confused by you guys making Evernote more and more bloated (Work Chat? Slideshows? Atlas? Market?... WHY? This isn't ANYTHING we have asked for.) Personally, I've only ever asked for easily password-protected notes to go along with encryption - but SIMPLER. Still not available. Passwords / easy per-note encryption is more along the lines of a great notes app, not those other features you squeezed in. It is the Microsoft approach to software to lose focus and try to shoehorn everything into an app. This is not good. For anyone. Haven't you guys heard about doing one thing and doing it right? I think you need to start making other software instead of trying to cram more features into Evernote to increase its perceived value. Come on, guys, shouldn't someone on your executive team understand this? Slim it down, make it lean and mean, and make it do the basics well. And when you get a beachball when trying to type or move the cursor or copy and paste, the basics are not being handled well. At all. Keep your eyes on the "ball"; fix it, and remember why you made Evernote in the first place, please... Thanks.
  10. That would require Evernote having someone to actually care about our issues, or you know, acknowledge our existence. Ostensibly, that is not the case. Has been for a very long time now. We definitely read the forums although we don't always respond. beatybeaty, we're looking into the issue with slow keyboard responsiveness, as well as many of the other issues reported here. Thanks for posting! Ok, that's great! Thanks very much for the reply, Jack.
  11. Anybody from Evernote actually even looking at this thread and addressing these issues??...
  12. a fourth reason: 4.) It is much FASTER to type into the web client. The web client doesn't randomly pause or delay when typing, editing, copy/pasting, or moving the cursor around with the keyboard. Evernote is so SLOWWWW to type into now... WHY is this happening, guys??
  13. I'm experiencing very slow typing (delay after I type a key from when it appears on the screen), moving the cursor around with arrow keys, and copying/pasting. This only occurs within Evernote. Evernote for Mac 6.0.5. Can anything be done to fix this? Pretty hard to type with this delay going on. Please help! Thanks.
  14. That actually made me laugh out loud. That's because it's true. You've once again successfully derailed the thread into bickering with your desire to pick fights. You're a horrible, arrogant, combative troll who always need to be right. Not enough attention as a child? I don't know and I frankly don't care. You're a terrible personality for a forum "moderator". Do this forum a favor and learn some humility and peace. Keep your mouth shut since you add no value to these threads when all people want is to be HEARD by EVERNOTE. NOT YOU, troll. We do NOT CARE about what you have to say. Let that sink in. No, really; let that sink in deeply. NOBODY CARES about what you have to say. Look at all the reactions to what you say. That is the evidence. What we do care about is sharing our thoughts, suggestions, and ideas with a company who creates a decent piece of software called Evernote. You have no place in that conversation. We are sharing this feedback because we do actually care about the product. You won't go away quietly, apparently, so just please, go away. I'm done with you and your garbage and won't be replying. Evernote should be ashamed that they have you trolling their boards. I'll be letting their executive team know that you are single handedly serving as a destructive PR force and caustic personality for us users. Now, back to the topic at hand: Password protected notes in Evernote. Please, Evernote?
