  1. Then why has there been no work on it since 8/8/16? The release notes are from last year which seems to indicate they haven't done anything on it since then. I don't see any improvement. There are still a lot of things that it can't do compared to the desktop version. Speaking of which, the Windows desktop version is slow and freezes on my PC all the time and so it basically leaves me without a decent version of Evernote to use. Sigh.
  2. So is Evernote Web dead? I stepped away from Evernote for while. I came back and wanted to use Evernote Web since the Windows client always freezes. However, having been gone for about a year, I've come back and it looks like there's been no development in Evernote Web. The last update post from Scruggles is from August 2016?!! Why would I want to pay any subscription if there has been no development for this and the Windows client is slow. No thanks. Evernote is apparently still struggling it seems, even after they raised the subscription rate twice.
  3. The response is delayed and Evernote fades out as the system indicates Evernote not responding. I hate to compare Evernote and OneNote in this way but I don't have any issues with OneNote at all like this and I shouldn't have to switch out my drive for Evernote. Evernote, among all the software I use or have used on my system, is the only program that ever does this. Every other program works fine.
  4. I just realized this is probably most likely why Evernote is so bogged down on my system as well - no 64-bit version for 64-bit systems. Evernote 6 freezes every time I perform a search. It's searching through my notes but the program locks up every single time. I currently have 2628 notes on a Windows 10 OS with a 600GB disk and 6GB RAM. I'm a heavy user of OneNote as well and I use the 64-bit version of OneNote and it works smooth and fast, nothing bogged down about it. Microsoft insists that if people have 64-bit systems to use the 64-bit version of OneNote for that reason. Makes sense that Evernote would too.
  5. @Glennie My two cents: I think a lot of it has to do with the money side of things. I don't think they raised their pricing just for the fun of it. To survive, they had to raise them and I'm sure they hated to have to do that. Since development is at such a slow rate, to me, it's apparent that they don't have the financial resources that we expect from companies like Google and MIcrosoft. I think we need to see if things improve in the next year or so to see if the pricing change helped or hurt them. I don't think they are doing this on purpose though. At the start, they had the money to make great things happened but they lost their focus (and their way). However, with new management, I'm willing to give them some time to see if they can rebound. I just don't think that time has happened yet.
  6. For me, you guys were doing it right with the first version where you had the same set up view as you did on the desktop. Perhaps add the F10 and F11 (in Windows) to the web version so if we wanted to hide the left and note panels, we could. I believe that the web version needs to be comparable to the desktop, if possible. The fact that I can't filter through my tags and 'drill down' through them like I can on the desktop makes using the web version pointless for me. My brother who just recently started using Evernote started off with the web version and that's all he knew until I showed him what the desktop version could do and he was wondering why he was still using the web version. I actually wouldn't mind using the web version alone but it's just not comparable to the desktop. When the second version came out of beta a year or two ago, I felt like it came out of beta unfinished and still feels that way.
  7. I haven't used it but I was looking at the addon yesterday and if I understand correctly, I would have to uninstall version 6 for Windows, reinstall version 5, install Evernote Batch and then upgrade to version 6 again. Really? Seriously, that is ridiculous. I'm going to pass.
  8. I wasn't asking if the owner of the notebook can create tags. What I was asking is whether or not the person who the notebook is shared with is able to use the tags the owner created. I wasn't sure if that was possible but apparently it is and mine's not working (surprise, surprise). So, in an indirect way, thanks for answering my question.
  9. Is there a bug with sharing tags though? My brother and I have two shared notebooks in Evernote, both created by him. He's given me view and edit rights but when I try to use tags that he created to notes I've added to the notebooks, I'm not able to at all. This isn't a case where I'm trying to add new tags which I know I can't. This is a case where I'm trying to use tags he's created and can't. Does anyone know if this is a bug or is there something I"m overlooking?
  10. Nothing is ever convenient about using EN. Too many work arounds. Yep, sucks that EN still does not have this feature. This is why it's hard for me to take EN seriously. Did it not occur to the developers at all that people may want to do research in EN?! I use EN for this purpose and I use one note for my conclusions and commentary on research from other notes I keep in EN but it's a pain having to scroll through the note when it would be much easier just to have a TOC for the note itself.
  11. But when will they ever actually add it? Who knows. This is why I'm currently only using Evernote as a glorified EReader for clippings, not actual notes.
  12. +1 for me on this as well. In fact, in the Android version you do have to go into edit mode to edit your notes. I like this because I don't want to be thumbing through my notes and accidentally editing notes. The desktop version needs this because I too, like so many apparently, do accidentally delete attachments or notes. I don't like the idea at all that if I have any note selected and accidentally brush up against the delete button on my keyboard - BAM! There goes that note and if I don't notice it before I empty my trash, it's too late. It's the same with attachments. If you have an attached document and the cursor is located right after the document, if you accidentally brush up against the backspace key on your keyboard then your attachment has been deleted and it is not sitting in your trash at all! It's just gone. It's design choices like this that puzzle me about the Evernote design team and why they make certain design choices, to be honest. Just too easy to lose work in Evernote. Evernote NEEDS something like this.
  13. I actually have Plus membership. If Premium offered what I was looking for (i.e. lockable attachments) then I probably would find it worth it to upgrade.
  14. Unfortunately for me, note history is a premium feature. Regardless, it would just be nice not to have to note history, click the undo button or any other work around for something like this. This is all assuming that you catch in the first place.
  15. That's because you're deleting the note that the document is attached to. I would fully expect to see the note with the attachment in the trash as well. If you place the cursor after the attachment in the note and hit backspace to delete it, the attachment will disappear but won't appear in the trash itself. It would need to be attached to the note to show up there. I have a note that contains my resume and different forms of it depending on where I'm applying. I copy and paste a lot from the resumes saved in this note, one resume per job posting that I save in EN and apply to in order to record which resume I sent to any particular job posting. I just don't want to accidentally delete it and not realize it. Otherwise, I won't be able to go back to retrieve it. I normally don't work with attachments this often but this is a special case. IMO a simple lock/unlock option for attachments would make me feel better. If I delete the note with the attachment, that's one thing but just uncomfortable with the ease of attachment deletion.
