  1. Yikes. This is my primary use case for Evernote as well, annotating scientific articles and writing about them in the body of the note. I haven't moved over the Evernote 10 yet due to loss of features. I'm amazed that they would mess this up too. What a nightmare.
  2. Thanks. Maybe I’ll try another round of sign out and uninstall. Maybe there’s a correct order I need to try.
  3. No luck. I tried all the steps you suggested and shortcuts page is still blank. I guess I just have to wait to see if a new update resolves this.
  4. I’m getting a blank screen when tapping on shortcuts on both iPad and iPhone.
  5. Ok thanks. I watched a YouTube video showing that search required a constant internet connection and that notes partially disappear while offline.
  6. Ok thanks. I couldn’t find a way to double tag search on the iOS app.
  7. Are offline search and compete local database sync not supported by Evernote 10? If the new app is just a slow version of the website version why even have an app? I’m confused.
  8. So can Evernote 10 not search by two tags to form AND search like the legacy version can? Are they getting rid of tags altogether?
  9. Thank you both. For unclear reasons the issue resolved itself today with no reboots or other changes. I'm still on Evernote 7.14. Now typing is very fast without the constantly spinning sync wheel while typing. I'll keep monitoring and see if if comes back or is associated with any clear precipitants.
  10. Thanks for the suggestions. I tried without WIFi on and although the application isn't syncing, text still freezes about every 3 seconds or so for about 1 second leading to a block of text that suddenly appears after a delay. Activity monitor only shows high CPU use of the Evernote process > 150% and no other processes above 5%. Previously AppleSpell would be high as well, but not this time. I don't have a database check option when option clicking. It gives me re-indexing options or "Troubleshoot note list", which only opens the activity log. Shift Option Sync fixes the issue only while other syncing is happening. Typing returns to fast while the wheel is spinning and then goes back to freeing up when the wheel stops. My current guess is that if I make the app busy syncing notes other than the one in which I'm writing, it doesn't try to sync the note in focus and text input can be smooth. I can reproduce this with a new note, so it doesn't appear to be related to any particular corrupted note. I explained this to support last year and they told me to "reboot my phone"
  11. OK so whatever the bug is, it has happened again. So seems like I have to do a fresh download of the database every two weeks. I'm able to get the CPU up to 90C by just typing into Evernote and can't type more than three word without a lock up and sync event. No errors in the log that I can see. Very sad. At least my other machine is still usable. I may have to start using the web version (shudder).
  12. That makes sense. This note had maybe 500 words, no links, just lots of indented bullet points. The note is fine on other machines like a super slow 12" MacBook from 2015. I think something is happening that corrupts the notes leading to some sync error that eats up cpu time, but I don't know. I'll see if re-downloading the data from the server fixes this hopefully for longer than a week. Update: it seems to have resolved with a new download from the server and typing is fast now even though my CPU is working hard to download all the other notes. I think this points to some corruption process occurring. I just wish I figure out how to keep if from happening. It would be great if there was an option to re-sync problematic notes rather than re-sync the entire database.
  13. I've got this problem again. Now on a fresh install i9 2019 16" MacBook. This was a totally fresh disk image, not restored from any backup. Evernote had never been on the machine before. It worked well for a few days. Now, after typing 1-2 words the sync button spools up and text entry crashes to a halt and note freezes up. CPU use goes to > 80% and AppleSpell process goes > 40%. Temps > 80c if typing for any duration of time. I'm going to have to wipe the Evernote installation and hope de-corrupts itself. Not sure this means my database is corrupted on the server side, but its weird as it only affects one machine at a time and has improved in the past with reinstalling the database. The slow down in typing definitely seems related to the sync process as though the sync event is too resource intensive for the machine. I have many other software programs with continuous save functions that don't do this and it seems a new i9 MacBook should be able to handle Evernote.
  14. Crossing my fingers... A clean reinstall of Evernote and downloading all notes from the server seems to have fixed the problem. I'm still getting ~40% CPU with typing fast, but I also see this occur with other apps at times and it's not heating up the machine anymore or causing delayed typing. Also the AppleSpell process isn't spooling up anymore.
  15. Thanks Gazumped. Ticket is 2850717 I don't mean to cross/double post. I added to another user's post about high cpu use and lag with typing. I once had this issue back in v6 or early v7. But basically I get a 1-2 second pause in entering text every few seconds that corresponds to the blue note sync icon. I'm also getting Evernote.app CPU use > 60% and my Mac heating up with greater than average battery drain. No other problems with this machine or any other apps. My iMac doesn't have the lag problem using the same Evernote database. I don't have access to high speed internet right now so I've held off on re-downloading the entire database from the server, but that likely will be my next step.
