  1. I am not ready to quit Evernote. I love the platform and put virtually everything into it. But these issues are incredibly frustrating. I have my iPhone set to lock at 30 seconds. If I am in a note in Evernote and it auto-locks, when I open the phone, Evernote has closed, and I have to reopen the app and find the note again. What kind of sense does this make?
  2. Not sure where to send this feedback, and if it's problem on Evernote's side or Apple's side. I use Shortcuts in iOS extensively to retrieve and create notes in Evernote. As of yesterday, using "Get Notes" to search for notes in Evernote crashes the Shortcuts app. I am still able to create notes in Evernote with Shortcuts, but "Get Notes" crashes the app.
  3. Yes, I have been wanting to get a Magic Trackpad or bluetooth mouse, but have not yet. I typically use a Magic Keyboard and find the keyboard shortcuts to do most of what I need for formatting, etc. And I use Evernote heavily for writing. The two biggest issues I've dealt with in that regard are editing tags or selecting a different notebook. I wish that when pulling up the info screen that the text box for tags was automatically selected so I didn't have to tap the screen. And it would be nice to be able to select the notebook menu by keyboard shortcut and the change notebooks using the arrow keys and the "Return" key. But concerning the losing of focus on notes and keyboard lag, things are much better now with iPadOS 13.4.
  4. For those who have suffered with Evernote reloading the note and/or losing focus on the note when app switching on an iPad or lag when typing in a note… I have an iPad Pro 9.7". After the upgrade to iPadOS 13.4 yesterday, Evernote seems to be working much better with the new OS update. Fingers crossed!
  5. To be fair, I think a big part of this may be on the OS. I switched to the 13.3 public beta. There are still issues, but not quite as bad as 13.2.2 release.
  6. Yes, I am having the same trouble. Also, whenever I use the app in SplitView (iPad), the typing becomes extremely laggy.
  7. I recognize Evernote is used in many different ways, but personally I think that the power of Evernote tags is in filtering. IOW, instead of trying to define a structure such as "Taxes", "Taxes-2018", "Taxes-2019", simply have tags "Taxes", "2018", "2019". Then, when you are searching for tax-related notes, filter first by the tag "Taxes" and then add to the filtered search which year tag corresponds to the search you want. The power of this is that the year tags "2018", "2019", etc. can also be used as filters for completely different searches. For example, you may have a tag "Journal" or "Correspondence" with the year tags to helpfully categorize which years those notes fall under. So instead of trying to figure out some complicated tag structure like… Correspondence Correspondence-2018 Correspondence-2019 Journal Journal-2018 Journal-2019 Taxes Taxes-2018 Taxes-2019 You could simply have the following list of tags… 2018 2019 Correspondence Journal Taxes Note: I use special characters before certain tags for major areas of work, life, etc.
  8. I've had some issues with sync not working properly both today and about a week ago - using an iPad and iPhone. Manually syncing it did not actually cause it to sync. In both cases, about 30 minutes later everything was okay. Makes me wonder if something is going on server side.
  9. I have the same problem. My notebooks are all marked for offline, but notes, sometimes even notes that I had just been in before switching to a different app, have the spinning wheel in the content area. My personal theory is that it has to do with the syncing of the notebooks. On your iPad, when you next open the app, open the Notebooks pane and just leave it there for a little while. It will go through the initial sync and various notebooks will have the green line showing the downloading/syncing of notes. After that is done, a few seconds later, the green line will appear on various notebooks again, and sometimes stay there for awhile.
  10. Yes, this works well. I only wish you could use the multi-select to quickly select tags for all the affected notes. I organize mostly with tags, not notebooks.
  11. Yes, actually the note list titles are bolder and smaller text. And as a result, you can see more of the title in the note list view. I like it! The previous version had titles in the note list that were virtually the same as that of the title in the note view.
  12. That's great to know. Actually, however, if you turn off "Smart Punctuation" in Settings - Keyboards, you can type the three hyphens like before. This works for me - maybe I'm crazy but I detest curly quotes.
  13. I’ve had some issues with this feature, but it does work. First, however, there is a setting you have to enable or else it will not work at all. With that enabled, you then can have Siri create notes in Evernote. See the screenshots attached.
  14. I agree that the limitation in iOS with saved searches of not having the tags available to further sort/search by is unfortunate. I hope this is changed. One way to get around that would be to add a generic tag (ie .task) for all such notes or one notebook (ie Tasks) in which all such notes lived.
  15. My wish is that we could format the date the way we want it displayed. In the meantime, I typically pull up the Textexpander keyboard and the shortcuts I have set there.
