  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. I'm not even sure humans are available in support at this point. I'm getting randomly copied portions of my emails copied into generic sentences like "I appears you're having problems with "insert text". I submitted a ticked about my Mac and included a screenshot and activity log. Support asked me to restart my phone and clear my cache. When I informed them that a Mac is not a phone they asked me to "clear my cache". When I asked them what they meant by clearing my cache a new agent replied and asked me if I had notes synced locally to my device and recommended to sort my notes by sync status to see if they were unsynced (which I don't see as an option in the macOS client). Is this for real? Is this some AI experiment?
  4. Evernote support suggested I fix this problem by “rebooting my phone” I sent a log and screenshot. I don’t think they are even reading the emails anymore. 🤦‍♂️
  5. Unfortunately no luck. I force re-synced using shift + option + sync and also Recreate Full Text Search Index and Recreate Spotlight Search Index and I'm still getting a typing delay. I get about 1 - 2 words written followed by the blue upper right hand side indicator for the note needing to sync illuminating. At the same time the Evernote CPU process jumps to > 60%, as does AppleSpell. Then the fans kick on. Eventually the note syncs and the process repeats. This is only happening on a MacBook Pro. My 2018 iMac is fine, so it suggests some local issue to that machine maybe.
  6. I'll try rebuilding the indexes, thanks for the tip. I'm using the direct Evernote website download version (always have). I wonder if there's some problem with either syncing (or attempt to sync even if wifi is off), or with spell check as the apple spell process seems to go up in CPU use at the same time.
  7. I'm glad it's working for you. It was working for me until the most recent update so maybe that corrupted my database. It's affected every note I've tested so far including a blank new note. I do have File Vault active and I'm on High Sierra, but I haven't had this problem since early version 7. I'm currently on Evernote 7.10. I filed a ticket, but based on my recent experience with Evernote support that is unlikely to be revealing. The support experiences I've had thus far have been tantamount to "can't reproduce said issue / can't be happening / etc". I'll have to nuke my database and download from the server when I have access to a faster connection speed.
  8. I have the same problem now on a 2016 maxed out 13" MacBook Pro. I'm getting > 60% CPU utilization from Evernote and also Apple spell processes. I tried clearing the keyboard and spelling caches in macOS with no improvement. I can type for about 3-4 words followed by a 2s delay, CPU spike, and return of normal typing speed for a few seconds. Then the process repeats. I'm not having slow downs anywhere else. I tried to give up and use the web interface, but it destroys the formatting of my notes (fun). It doesn't appear to be related to syncing, as turning off wifi doesn't fix the problem like it did when I had this behavior in version 6.
  9. I see the same behavior. Do you use tabbed windows? I think those tabs never get cleared out of memory even when closed.
  10. I really like the tabbed window feature on the macOS Evernote client. However the memory management seems to be really weird such that closing a tab still seems to keep it in memory. Seemingly as a result, when I open a new tab, rather than generating a blank tab (presumably should be fast?), there is like a 3-10 second delay on populating some old note that I had looked at in the past. I'm on a maxed out i7 2018 iMac with 32 GB of RAM and this still feels slow. Possibly also related, the longer I have Evernote open the more RAM it consumes and never seems to give it back. As a result I have to quit the application at regular intervals it seems. Is there any way to fix this so that a blank tabbed window is opened and then I can select what I want to view?
  11. I’m seeing sync reports during sleep recorded in the log. However when I first change focus to the Evernote window I see a new sync occur and only then are prior changes propagated to the app. This is the same behavior I’ve seen on 3 different Macs. Basically even if I’ve been on the computer for an hour no true syncing occurs until I change focus to the Evernote window.
  12. Is Evernote supposed to sync in the background in macOS? Whenever I open my machine I find that Evernote has not synced. Even if the machine is awake and I've been using it for a while, syncing isn't triggered until I change the focus to an active Evernote window. Then after some time syncing is triggered. This has led to note change conflicts in the past.
  13. I reported this problem to support in 2016 and was told a fix was on its way. I’m still waiting. The issue is related to using the split keyboard. If you use the standard keyboard it will work. They just can’t find the time to fix it.
  14. I’m sticking with Evernote. However I have no confidence they will ever get bullets to function correctly after years of problems. They just introduce new bugs every now and then to keep me on my toes. The current bug includes hitting return and it generating a new line with a bullet (but no checkbox if present in the prior line). However this new line can’t be accessed and arrowing around skips over it. Also there is no way to type on it. You have to backwards delete it and try again.
  15. I’m getting the ads for premium nearly every time I open a note with a PDF. I have to dismiss the PDF annotation option ad for premium users it’s really annoying. I’m a premium subscriber.
  16. It does seem to be the syncing behavior that slows things. The typing works fine on large notes for about 3 seconds then the continuous syncing kicks in and there is a 1-2 second delay between adding each additional character.
  17. Fair enough. I suppose it's a situation of me adapting to the application as opposed to the application being able to conform to my work flow.
  18. I was just about to post a similar request. A common use case for me is looking at a particular place in a long note somewhere near the middle. I want to look at another note and so I double click the current note to open it into a stand-alone window. However it then jumps to the top and I lose my place. I think the default behavior should be to open to where you are currently focused in a note, at least for a note that is current being viewed in the main window of the application.
  19. I do see an error of not being able to save to local caches. I cleared the cache but still there’s no improvement. My experience with the iOS client for Evernote continues to worsen to the point where I only mainly use it as a read only system. Ever since 8.0, I have been affected by nearly every bug including data loss, slow launch, multiple crashes, and now I’m seeing typing delayed for several seconds after adding it making it essentially impossible to type anything. Maybe I need to uninstall the application restart my phone a few times I’m still having a generally positive experience with the macOS client, and that’s why I continue to use the service. Update: I reinstalled and now at least new notes are fast. There are still a few older ones that still have serious delays with text and continuous syncing activity.
  20. Just adding new letters of text slows down every 3 seconds where I get a 1-2 second delay on seeing new text appear. My guess is that there may be some background saving process occurring but who knows.
  21. I'm getting the continuous syncing problem after updating to 6.12.3. Interestingly I didn't having this problem on the last version. This makes the typing experience very unpleasant. Once I start typing the sync icon starts spinning and I get a half second typing delay every 2 seconds that can result in words being chopped in half. Is anyone else experiencing this?
  22. Running most current version of Evernote for macOS. When making a bulleted list, if I paste or drag/drop an attachment into a line with an empty bullet, the bullet is removed. This is new since 6.10 I think. This has not been fixed for me as of the most recent version (6.11.1).
  23. I'm still getting massive response delays on the order of minutes were the entire application locks up and then eventually responds on an iPad Air 2. The dark left sided functions bar still takes up way too much screen real estate. Even when the app is responding, I am getting several second delays between typing in seeing the text appear in spurts. I guess the A8x chip doesn't have enough horsepower to keep up with the application? So far it's running smoothly on my iPhone 7.
  24. OK a better solution. I'm using PDF Expert, which appears to be clipping the PDF as a vector graphics file (which is actually pretty cool). If you paste that into Preview.app as a new document and then save as jpeg or png, this will rasterize the image and allow it to be imported into Evernote as a bitmap.
  25. Looks like a clunky solution is to paste into Keynote and then copy that image out of Keynote into Evernote. This converts the image into a bitmap attachment that is viewed in line. Edit: actually looks like you have to past into Word, copy that into Keynote, and then copy that into Evernote. Seems like there must be a better way.
