  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 think you are mistaken regarding web link vs. Evernote link. https://evernote.com/… IS a web link. And that is why you get an ugly blue URL. I have seen the same behavior, which is very annoying. You would think an internal link would be an internal link. I am not sure if the underlying link is a web URL or Evernote link, but if you go to Share -> Share another way -> Copy link and then paste this into another Evernote note, it will produce a nice green link with the title of the first note. I know… seems backwards, but what can you say?
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. I like this idea, but I hope it works better than the recent notebooks feature. I have one notebook I am constantly putting notes it, but for whatever reason the notebook seems to never be put into the recent notebooks list. Kinda frustrates the purpose.
  14. Am I the only one seeing a lot of buggy/sluggish behavior, especially on the iPad, with Evernote's latest releases (the one release to the App Store 3 hours ago, as well as the one a few days ago)? I create a new note … and nothing happens. Maybe 20-30 seconds later the window finally appears. I try to create a duplicate - nothing appears to happen for several seconds. Opening a note (I have everything offline) - in the content area I simply see a spinning wheel for 10-15 seconds.
  15. 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.
  16. I was just about to report the same. This really messes up ability of linking different notes to navigate around in Evernote.
  17. I have a similar Workflow that creates a new note and then appends some info to it. I was having the same problem, but fingers crossed, I have "fixed" the issue by putting in a "Wait" action set for 15 seconds. I tried it for 5 and 10 seconds but still got the second note. I think something with Evernote's server is either not responding as quickly or maybe they have something set that will not allow an "immediate" append.
  18. @Stuhrer What version of iOS do you have? I’m having difficulties with the iOS 11.1 public beta, but nothing that extreme.
  19. Are you also seeing a lot of lag/unresponsiveness when tapping various icons? I think this might be an iOS 11 issue, as it is not only in Evernote that there is a huge delay after tapping various buttons before anything happens. For Evernote, I see it mostly with filtering notes by tags, however. Plus, I’m having big issues with my Bluetooth keyboard not disconnecting.
  20. I’m seeing the same thing - at least when using Evernote with the on-screen keyboard. Very annoying!
  21. 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.
  22. Drag and drop does work in split screen. But, when you drag the text into Evernote, you need to make sure you see the "cursor" in the note field. This usually requires tapping the content field. At that point, you will see a green circle with the plus sign at the top right of the text you are drag and dropping.
  23. I had explained in another forum that if you type “- - -“ and then delete the spaces in between the dashes, it will not create the smart dash, or whatever it is called. This will give you the three dashes in a row. Now just press enter/return at the end, it will create the horizontal line. To do this takes a bit of time, if you were to do it every time you needed the line. But using the same technique you could either create a TextExpander or text replacement shortcut that would insert the three dashes without spaces, and after they are inserted, press enter and the line will be created. I don’t use the TextExpander keyboard often, but for certain tasks like this will switch to it, and then back.
  24. I created a TextExpander snippet to insert three dashes. You could also create a text replacement shortcut in Settings for it.
  25. Concerning issue 1, I am seeing something similar. I don’t necessarily use the web clipper from Safari - I have a Workflow that I use most of the time to create notes from websites, but I am getting duplicate notes at times also. My Workflow actually creates a note and then appends some info to it. Instead of appending to the first note, it is creating a new note often. Issue 3: I have seen sometimes, but it has seemed to work itself out for me on its own - it doesn’t sync immediately and maybe even throws an error, but then after a few minutes, it does sync. Two major issues I am seeing are: 1) Tapping the tag icon to filter notes by tags results in a 7-second delay. At first, I thought I didn’t tap the right spot. But I have found that if you just wait (for what seems forever), the tag window will finally open, 2) If you have medium selected in the note list options, the note preview tends to jump around a lot, as the image thumbnails for images, PDFs, etc. don’t load immediately, and then when they finally load, the list of notes moves. So, if you are scrolling down in your notes, you suddenly lose your place as the thumbnails are finally loaded. This is especially frustrating when you are searching for a note or filtering by a tag.
