  1. It takes forever (minutes) sometimes to load my notes on the web version. This has been happening for at least more than a year. It's destroying my productivity and makes me fear opening up a note at all on the web. I am based in Korea and this makes me suspect Evernote isn't paying as much for its cloud server use for Asian daytime as it does for U.S. or European working time. I've filed complaints about this over and over and they don't care. I feel discriminated against. Evernote, what's the matter with you? Why aren't you fixing the slow loading time for the web?
  2. I'd hate to see Google take it over completely. It would try to insert what it has into Evernote, including Google spreadsheet and so on. Google would gain a huge edge over Microsoft in this market if it acquired Evernote. Microsoft Office would start to wane and a tool like Evernote that is heavily Internet-centric would make Google superior in the future market of word processing, publication and private data creation. Imagine Google spreadsheet being inserted into Evernote, which lacks creativity and is very buggy in that area. Evernote's pretty bad with editing tools and Google could help in that area. Still, I'm not sure I would want Google taking Evernote over, because it is so super aggressive in terms of mining user data and can be very prickly with its services. There's just not enough consistency. It has an overbearing stance over its users (and governments around the world as well). Whatever it does, it does with a superiority mentality over its subscribers. That's what bothers me. If Evernote goes public, Google would try to gain the most stakes in it, but I'd like to see original founders still having a majority say in the operations. Get help where needed from Google, but don't let it eat up the product. IPO or not. That's my advice. (but then, evernote founders and major stake holders would still love to get their hands on money and opt out. After all, Evernote is somewhat limited in terms of its growth potential. Where would it go from now? It's got a huge pool of fastidious users who never stop demanding and the service fees aren't like the ones you pay for, say, Bloomberg terminals. They might want a new adventure so may just decide to give it to Google, which would dangle lots of money in their eyes no doubt)
  3. Hi, I noticed that with recent updates to evernote for iOS, the tables in notes looked very very small when I viewed them on my iphone. I use tables A LOT and they used to fill the iphone screen when I opened the notes containing them. But with a recent update a few weeks ago, when I opened a note with a table, the table looks shrunken. I'll attach the image. do other people notice this and get annoyed?
  4. Thanks for clarifying a lot of things about this move. as long as Evernote is the one paying and making demands, I think we should be ok. I doubt Google would allow its AI to break into Evernote data and mine it for its purposes. One fleeting thought, though, is whether or not Evernote is positioning for an IPO. It's cutting costs, raising prices and reaching out to other vendors for technical cooperation, the way I see it. This spruces up the company in the eyes of pontetial investors. Surely Evernote is a fantastic stock potentially and could draw lots of investors if it went public. Phil stepping down made me think this way first. Is an IPO on the way? That's an important thing to think about, because that means all different sorts of people will want to get their hands on Evernote and even demand down the road changes to its data protection policies so the data could be used to drive in more profits. I mean, financial investors don't care whether customers' data are protected as much as Evernote and its actual users. Their bottom line is their bottom line. Just some food for thought in relation to this move to Google cloud servers.
  5. 외국에선 문제가 없다고 하는데 저만 tag에 문제가 있는 거 같아서요. tag에 두가지 문제가 있어요. 잘못된 태그가 저절로 부탁되는 것과, 아예 싱크가 안되는 거요. 미국 포럼 가면 문제 없는 거 같은데 혹시 이게 서버상의 차이로 인한 문제는 아닐까 싶어서요. 이게 아주 지진한 문제라서 고쳐지지가 않습니다.
  6. I'm using evernote for windows. also the web clipper. I feel that when I sync, the ``automatic mistagging'' happens. in other words, notes come back to my desktop with wrong tags. yes, tags are an open issue as far as I'm aware. to be more exact, tags not syncing properly. if I have 50 notes with a certain tag, those notes will sync, but on the online version, only 30 of them will have that tag. that means, if I download the notes on another device (say, at the office), the other 20 notes will be downloaded without the tag. I contacted support, and they admitted it's a problem and told me they'd let me know if this is fixed. Yet I fear this may take a LONG time to fix, as I once noticed this issue a couple of years ago, too. I think these two issues may be related. also, i suspect this may have to do with the fact I live in Korea. There are loads of people who have no tagging issue like this. Then why me?
  7. Does anyone notice that sometimes notes are tagged with tags that you did not attach? I'm increasingly finding cases where I'm sure I tagged a note ``aaa'' and find that later the note appears with another tag. Is this a bug? At first I thought i must have made a mistake in tagging, but I see this increasingly. What gives? And also, Evernote still hasn't figured out why some tags are not synced at all, right? I rely heavily on tags, and this is really ruffling my feathers.
  8. if i cut something from a table in evernote and feel like i want to put it back where it was, Ctrl-Z doesn't work, and the data's location is lost unless I remember where it was. this is a longrunning bug. not sure why this isn't fixed.
  9. so, Google will NOT use any of data for any of its own business goals, major or minor? To what extent is Google benefiting from this deal? I mean, Google must be getting something, right? Otherwise why would it agree to allow its servers to be used by Evernote. Is Evernote paying Google, or is it the other way. There's so much that needs to be explained.
  10. 물론 그렇게 하면 태그가 다시 제대로 됩니다. 다시 말해, triathlon의 이름을 살짝 바꾸어 싱크한 다음에 다시 triathlon으로 동기화를 하면 정상으로 태그 수가 뜬다는 거죠. 근데 저는 태그가 수백개입니다. 매 태그마다 데탑과 온라인상 태그 수가 일치하는지 확인할 수는 없는 노릇이거든요. 게다가 수백개라면 적어도 수십개의 태그에 문제가 있는데 이걸 제가 일일이 이름을 바꿨다 다시 싱크하고 있을 수는 없는 노릇이지요. 에버노트가 제 생활의 효율을 도와야지 제가 에버노트의 효율을 돕고 있을 수는 없잖아요. 에버노트가 시급히 이 버그를 해결하길 바랍니다. 꽤 오래 된 버그인데 너무 안이한 건 아닌지요. 이러면 태그 자체가 의미가 없죠. 싱크가 안되는데.
  11. 에버노트 윈도우를 집과 오피스에서 사용하고, ios 용 앱을 사용합니다. 집에서 triathlon이라는 태그로 7개의 노트를 등록했다고 하면 온라인에서 들어가서 봤을 때 triathlon (0)이라고 나옵니다. 태그 이름만 동기화됐지 노트에 tag가 붙은 건 동기화가 안됩니다. 물론 다 그런 건 아닙니다. 한 7-80는 동기화가 되지만 나머진 안됩니다. 이래서는 회사에서 동기화를 할수가 없습니다. 회사서는 집과 마찬가지 숫자의 태그가 다운로드 안될테니까요.
  12. 그나마 되면 다행인데 아예 태그는 동기화가 안 돼요 일부는
  13. 제가 영문 포럼에서 물어보고 검색해봐도 별로 그런 문제를 겪는 사람이 없다고 하는데 이게 혹시 한국 서버의 문제일 수 있지 않을까 하는 생각이 들어 올려봅니다 전 태그가 동기화되지 않는 경우가 많아서 여러 기기에서 동시에 사용하기 어려움을 느낍니다. 한국 유저 분들중에도 그런 분이 계신가요? 태그는 노트북보다 더 중요하게 사용되는 경우가 많아서 동기화가 안 되면 난감합니다. 사실상 노트 분류를 못하는 거거든요. 혹시 저와 같은 문제를 겪고 게시는 분이 계신지요.
  14. thanks, it's the windows desktop version and I'm using the latest version of evernote.
  15. I started to rely heavily on tagging after seeing what good it could do. I had long refrained from tagging notes because I knew how unreliable syncing was when it came to tagging. I realized this 2-3 years ago. Now I'm back to tagging notes and see that the problem remains and hasn't been fixed. I see tens of tags not syncing in my account. Why does Evernote do nothing about it?? I don't even bother to ask customer support, because I know it won't solve any problems. Yet my curiosity remains. Why does Evernote not fix it? I'm a user from Korea. Is this particularly a regional issue? Then what is the Korea team doing about it? I've turned from an Evernote advocate to an advocate of not even starting Evernote because it's such a bug-laden elephant still. Why is Evernote complacent about its major bug with tagging? Can someone answer? I'm not complaining for the sake of complaining. I'm REALLY curious and I think I deserve an answer as a longtime premium member.
