  1. I wonder how much votes in this forum matter to development. There are other sources - Twitter, Evernote Support - of user input that might influence the developers more. At any rate, with the new core editor that is being talked about, which is supposed to work and be the same everywhere, I would expect there to be an Undo button - it would be pretty difficult to shake my iMac to undo.. And if we are counting votes, I too really dislike shaking my phone as the only way to undo something..
  2. Yes, this is really annoying behavior. It means that if for instance I am jotting things down during a meeting, when it is likely my phone will shut off between jottings, this behavior essentially make Evernote useless. So I use Apple Notes in this circumstance, and later Share the note to Evernote. So I have to use two apps where one should be adequate. I believe there are other threads discussing this issue. I seem to remember getting the impression that this refresh is a "fix" for another problem, that I don't recall.
  3. Came across this yesterday.. a bit of a fluff piece, no real details, but I was interested that is says "the new common editor is out in beta". I guess they mean the web beta.. I'm anxious to see it on iOS.. https://www.builtinaustin.com/spotlight/2019/10/15/working-at-evernote-austin-engineering
  4. I agree completely that the user should be able to set a default font size. Only for the opposite reason - I think 16 pt is too small 😏. So far there aren't any user settings in the current web beta, so lets hope when they appear font size is one of them. As has been pointed out, you can change the apparent font size using the browser, but I really want this setting for iOS which has always been plagued with a too small default font.
  5. The actual question asked was "What are your favorite apps for taking notes?", which would surely mean different things to different people. Does it mean literally typing notes? Then an app like iA Writer would be best, it looks great and is a pleasure to use. But it isn't much good at organizing notes, or capturing images or receiving email. If you mostly want to type notes, but also store images and documents, then maybe Bear is best. But it doesn't do everything Evernote does. Maybe you mostly want to store and organize notes, in which case Evernote is best, though the note editor isn't so hot.. anyway, a poll like this doesn't mean much as we all have different ideas as to what is "best". Though everyone here must find some use for Evernote, else we wouldn't be here..
  6. Not many votes in this forum.. but this forum is tiny compared to the number of active Evernote users, so I'm not so sure you can conclude much about the popularity of a larger font option from this. The problem with Small/Medium/Large is that if you prefer Medium, you have to change the setting for every single note. There is no way to make Medium or Large the default. Plus, if you change the font size of a note, and edit the note on both iOS and MacOS, you will invariably end up with a mix of font sizes in your note. Hopefully the "new" editor will fix the font consistency issue. The web beta does allow you to set the font size, so this should appear on iOS. Setting a default font size is not in the current web beta, hopefully it will find its way there eventually.
  7. Isn't the reason no one has heard back about the beta program, that there are no betas to test yet? I thought the videos made this clear. The only beta available right now is what Ian Small called the "modern web experience", which seems to be randomly available to more and more people. But it doesn't even seem to have a way to report bugs, so it doesn't seem like a formal beta (maybe I'm wrong about this - I applied for the beta program, and some weeks later the modern web experience became available to me, but no notification that I was now a beta tester). I'm only talking about the "new" Evernote. There is still an active beta program for existing releases - betas for upgrades to the current iOS version still happen.
  8. Well it is a Beta, so I expect bugs. And actually, you don't need to go to Settings, you can switch versions from the main window in the lower right corner. But I also expected a more direct way to report problems to the developers. Hopefully they are reading this forum.
  9. Using the new Evernote web beta, I got the message: "This webpage is using significant energy. Closing it may improve the responsiveness of your mac” This is using the latest version of Safari on an iMac using the latest version of MacOS.
  10. Thanks. People do seem to be posting web beta issues there.
  11. For anyone using the new Evernote Web Beta - how do you report a bug? There is a menu to "Provide Feedback", but it is a survey, not a place to report issues. Or maybe I'm missing something obvious..
  12. A contrary view: the link feature, which I believe is Apple code, not Evernotes, doesn't work very well. I would constantly have problems with text containing numbers, like blood pressure readings, being flagged as a phone number. And dates also were highlighted, which I personally see no use for. Part of the problem is that the highlight of a link is bright blue, so these kinds of errors really stand out (the same error shows up in Notes, but they use a more subtle dark underline). So I am glad this "feature" is no longer turned on. Since we users disagree on this, hopefully when highlighted links return, it will be a user defined option.
  13. The "Evernote Web Beta" isn't really new, and everyone has access. I think it was released almost a year ago. The new Beta is invitation only. That is the one with the tool bar that starts with "Normal Text" and "Sans Serif" and has the button in the lower right corner. This is what is featured in the videos we are all chattering about. Things are a bit confusing with two "betas" on the web.
  14. I'm curious about this.. I'm now using the iOS 13 beta on my iPad. Using the "old" Evernote Web, I can't scroll past the length of the screen. Using the "new" Evernote web, things appear to be fine, but trying to edit is difficult at best, as I can't easily tap to place the cursor, which when it does appear, jumps around on its own. I don't have the new beta being talked about in the videos. So I'm curious which version you are having success with? Maybe iOS 13 broke it..
