  1. I guess they are, as I just looked and indeed only Basic and Premium are listed. The more I think about it, the more it is disappointing to learn this approach is viewed as perfectly acceptable versus gathering the customer feedback first and then making a change, whatever that change may end up being. Or has been mentioned, the intent was something other than was communicated...which does make more sense the more I think about it...otherwise, what would the justification be to remove Plus...if it was so unpopular, anyway. I have also begun to wonder if anything we have written here will be read... As I re-read the OP, it wasn’t directly soliciting any feedback and there hasn’t been a subsequent post by @Shane D. since. I also just looked at the date of the post and realized I was very late to the game—really struggle with making time to read the Forum. And, I guess posted to this thread is not a good use of my time! I learned something, anyway...a few things...but one big one—to pay attention to the OP date!!
  2. @Shane D.: We don’t know your plans for officially soliciting ‘Customer Feedback’ regarding needs and I’m sure you will be looking for ‘feature/function-type‘ needs, but I thought I’d still mention something now for consideration, as it has been referenced in this thread, and I have had discussions about it outside of this Forum, as well as experienced other apps that do it... Since your user base is extremely broad, it will likely be difficult to determine a set of features/functions for a middle tier (assuming that is still the approach), so how about some form of an Á la Carte offering? I have personally observed a couple forms of this: 1) Each (significant) additional feature has a monthly/annual fee over the base app (whatever is determined to be included in the base), which is FREE. 2) A subscription option which provides for X many add-on features/functions. For example, the subscription options could be: Basic = Free Plus = Basic plus 4 add-ons (4 is the X that would need to be determined) Premium = Everything There could also be an additional (or more) middle-tier, such as: Plus Extra = Basic plus 8 add-ons (8 is another X to be determined; for example, maybe the first one is 2 and this one is 4) Granted, this may have an end result of a number of Premium users who move down to one of the middle tiers, which may not be what you want from a business financials perspective. Although, it may also result in a number of Basic users moving up to a middle tier, as well, and many more satisfied customers, so could be a win/win! Anyway, just a thought that came to mind, so figured I’d pass it on while I was thinking about it!
  3. I just finished watching Keep Productive’s (by Francesco D’Alessio) video on ‘Best 10 Note-Taking Apps 2018’ that was published today. Evernote was first (1st) on the list and Francesco referenced the three (3) options: Free, Plus, and Premium. Viewers of the video will be surprised to learn that ‘Plus’ is no longer available to them. @Shane D. If Evernote is still standing firm on their decision to remove the Plus option for new customers, you might want to let Francesco know.
  4. Thanks, @DTLow, I’m glad to know it wasn’t just me, but is a deficiency in the Forum app. I agree, I do like the ‘Quote’ feature! I have actually struggled with several ‘How Tos’ related to the Forum app (you may remember me asking you about a ‘User Guide’ before) and I just asked Evernote Support if there is a ‘User Guide’ available and received the official word that there is not, which surprises me. But, anyway, I digress! Thanks for the help, tho!
  5. @Antoine Dozier: Would you be able to elaborate on how this provides “loyal Evernote users a sense of worth for their hard work and dedication to the brand”? i read this my first time through and it didn’t make sense to me and I was just starting to scan the replies again, so thought I would ask in case I’m completely missing a perspective to this. Thanks! (p.s. My apologies if someone else has already asked this question. I wasn’t sure how to tell without looking through all the replies, which I wasn’t prepared to do. If there is a quick way I can tell if someone has already replied and jump to that reply, I’m all ears! I realize this Forum Use question is ‘Off Topic’, but I thought I’d risk it and still ask. ? If you have suggestions, you can DM me.)
  6. I think ‘relevance’ is very subjective and while I agree that it is important we all do our best to stay on topic, I’m not so convinced that the initial comment of... “Just remember, you're now competing with Office 365's FREE solution. Most offices have MS Office, granting them access to a shared notes system.” ...and the replies giving examples supporting that statement related to OneNote, including... ”I have Office 365 free through an educational institution and received a ton of extra OneNote space for free upon buying an external hard drive. I've continued with Evernote because it's familiar and I have a lot of notes, but I hear that OneNote keeps improving.” ...are necessarily off-topic or not relevant. I think it could be helpful for Evernote to be reminded that they are competing with an industry giant that is offering one of the main competitors to Evernote for FREE, so in addition to their needing to be compelling reasons/features for new customers to choose Evernote, there also needs to be price points that don’t seem that far from FREE to get some of those compelling reasons/features. Just another perspective to consider. ?
  7. @Shane D.: I have to say, reading your announcement strictly at face value and not attempting to read between the lines, I find it hard to reconcile. While ‘Plus’ may have proven to be less popular than you *thought* it would be, there are still some number of people who chose Plus for a reason. You have determined, because it is less popular than you thought it would be, that a better solution is needed to meet customers’ needs and gathering feedback will help determine what those needs are. That sounds fine. By gathering customer feedback, you will be able to also determine if any of your assumptions are incorrect, and customer feedback should always be of value to a company. However, the part where things fall apart for me is when you say you are discontinuing adding new Plus accounts. You are doing this *before* you gather customer feedback. Since the Plus level hasn’t been as popular as you thought, I don’t understand the risk of continuing to offer it during the time you gather feedback. And by doing so, you would be continuing to give options to new customers. You could include some kind of communication and questionnaire letting new Plus customers know your current thinking and solicit their feedback. After reading almost all of the other members’ replies in this thread, those who currently have Plus chose it for a reason and would not have wanted to only have had Basic and Premium as choices. I guess the bottom line is this... It doesn’t seem you would receive that many new Plus customers during the time it takes for you to gather feedback, especially if it isn’t that popular, but by eliminating the option for new users, it seems you are not taking your future customers’ needs into consideration at all. In addition, making a decision before gathering customer feedback is contrary to meeting your customer needs and putting your customers first. And to what real benefit? Just my few cents...
  8. @DTLow Curious what link you are meaning by your statement of, “The second link to a specific discussion fails...” ? From just how your post looks/reads, I assume you are referring to @Guest Cooper’s post’s second sentence that begins, “I get this error...” Is that correct? If so, for me it opens a screenshot of the error message they receive when accessing the first link of their post. I don’t know why it seems users are seeing such different results... You say you can access the first link that @Guest Cooper posted, but I get the exact same error that @Guest Cooper receives. I started having this problem it seems like weeks ago now and I haven’t had any additional time to pursue it until today. Like everyone who has posted in this thread that they are receiving errors when trying to access different links, I also receive the errors they do. For example, when accessing the first link in @Guest Cooper’s post, the following is a screenshot of what I see. As a side note, the other problem I experienced back when I started receiving the above error was the link to choose a file was gone. The only options I had were the options that now appear under the [INSERT OTHER MEDIA] button. To clarify, the following is a screenshot excerpt of what was NOT appearing in my post back then. I thought I was losing my mind! I wasted a lot of time trying to figure out how I had posted screenshots before. I hadn’t done it for quite a while, so I assumed I just wasn’t remembering something, so I can empathize with all the frustration I’ve read in this thread. After learning about the changes happening to the Forum, I can only assume the effects of the changes being made are more than was ever anticipated. I’ll now have to try and see if I can access the main Forum links that have been stated as being in the upper corners.
  9. I don’t use ‘Simplify Text’ very often, but every time I do, I think logically...I think that I can just select the text for which I want the ‘Simplify Formatting’ applied. However, I’m quickly reminded the function does not work logically. It instead applies to the entire note regardless if anything is selected, so I lose all the formatting I had wanted to keep in the rest of the note. ? i searched this forum and didn’t see where anyone else has requested what I’m requesting, which kind of surprised me, as I don’t think what I’m expecting is that odd. As I said before, it seems logical to me. So anyway, my request is: Please modify the behavior of ‘Simplify Formatting’ to first look to see if any text is selected and if so, act ONLY on the selected text; otherwise, if no text is selected, then act on the entire note contents. Thank you in advance for your consideration of my request! ?
  10. I've only just updated to this latest Beta version and the changes look good so far! I do have a couple suggestions for consideration, tho...one I've actually been meaning to suggest for a while, but it jumped out at me even more with the other changes in this Beta. 1. Since there is still plenty of space available in the sidebar, do the icons have to be as small as they are...? Could they be a bit bigger...? Such as in the following mockups. 2. This is something I've been meaning to suggest for a while. In the Snippet view (which is the view I always use with the column set fairly narrow), if the image height was a bit less, more of the title could be displayed. I think it would be helpful if the first row was always reserved for the note title, which would provide more information, as well as consistency when scanning the column looking for a particular note (whether the note contains an image or not).
  11. Yes, Tables have improved, here is a link to a Help document about the new features: http://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/208314638-How-to-create-and-customize-tables Unfortunately, I ended up on this thread, because I wanted to be able to align text within a table cell, so I wanted to press <Ctrl><Tab> as I'm used to doing in other apps when in a table, but unfortunately, nothing. I even tried adding another column to the table to use for the content I wanted lined up at a tab, but learned that we can't change the color of individual borders within the table—it is the entire table borders or none. The content wasn't going to look right with a vertical line between the text to the left and the text to the right. So seems that we still have very limited options for lining up text. Indents only work if what you want to line up is at the beginning of the line. You can't type a few words and then indent, as it will indent at the beginning of the line, not where your cursor is. Also, just up-voted! +1
  12. Hi, @Maddhin and @Evernote. We can add a Notebook to our Shortcuts (at least I just did on my iPhone), so how is that done behind the scenes...? Wouldn't it be possible for Evernote to make that process available to us to use within notes?
  13. Interesting you say that, @Bill Myers. It reminded me of one of my notes I saw on my iPhone that was blank except for a few characters, but I don't remember what the characters were now. For some reason, when I saw it, I just assumed it was the same issue. It should have registered that it might have been something different, since it didn't contain any real content. Unfortunately, I also didn't write down the note title and I just tried looking for it again and wasn't able to find it; granted, I didn't spend too much time looking. If/When I find it, I can tell whether or not it was created using the Web Clipper and also see what characters are in the note. Thanks for posting this, Bill! I will definitely start paying more attention to the notes I open that don't have the correct content! Also, I don't understand how the problem could be caused by the Website if it displays properly in the Windows client, on your iPad, and in the Web client. It doesn't seem logical at all for the iPhone to be the only one that has the issue.
  14. @Bill Myers: All very well said! I wholeheartedly agree and have had similar frustrations. I have actually been testing OneNote for a while now (when I have free time, which isn't often enough) and have also considered becoming a OneNote Insider to be able to see what is coming and also to help provide input to future versions, etc. to fill some of the holes. They have an Evernote Importer. Although, I really do/would LOVE Evernote...if it did everything *well* that it tries to do...and, I don't really want to change to a new app. I personally think, to remain competitive, Evernote needs to put more emphasis on the word processing functions and pay more attention to their customers' feedback/input. The OneNote team has the first one in spades and from what I've seen, they do a pretty good job engaging with their customers. Having said all that, I know all OneNote users aren't in love with it and some threaten to leave for Evernote, so I realize you can't satisfy everyone all the time, but one other significant difference between the two is OneNote is FREE. I personally pay for two Premium accounts just so my husband can access our home content and do everything the Premium version allows, even though he rarely ever creates a note, and only edits a very few. Off my soap box now!! =)
  15. Thanks, @DTLow, for the info on your experience! Hmmm... That isn't what I'm seeing, tho... I also had some notes in which I created the table on my Mac, it was squished (some down to just 1 character) in iOS, and they are still showing squished in iOS now...and to the best of my memory, I hadn't edited the note in iOS. I'm assuming we don't know for sure if a note was edited in iOS, it will not automatically be fixed, correct? Or if there are other cases the squished tables in iOS will not be fixed? Since a post to this thread has been added to the official Evernote thread on 8.2.2, I hope Evernote chimes in on this... I have an ongoing open ticket about something else, so I will squeeze in a question about this, as well. I also have to read the rest of the posts I haven't read yet, so maybe my answer will still be found.
