  1. Just a little reminder, Evernote is now working on a unified editor across all 5 platforms, instead of maintaining them separately, meaning that if other platforms have dark mode, Windows will have it too (very likely). I totally understand the frustration and disappointment of Evernote not being improved much over the past few years. I did move away to competitor product, until I see Evernote releasing the Behind The Scene videos. The intention of these videos is clear, Evernote is trying to improve the product, but it takes time, and during this period, old versions will have the least improvement. Evernote is asking us to give them time. So far from the Behind The Scene videos, the future of Evernote seems pretty promising. I am convinced, so I came back. Maybe wait for a few months to see how it goes. But that doesn't mean it is for everyone. I am not here to convince people to stay, just to let people know this information. Making a switch and having to setup all the workflow from the ground up is always painful and expensive. So providing this little piece of information might help people when they have to make a decision. Hope this helps.
  2. Evernote Team, please count me in. I have signed up in the Beta Program page and I promise I will give you guys good and useful feedback. And thanks for letting us know what is happening under the curtain and where we are heading to.
  3. Glad that after unifying the editor, they are now planning on unifying the view options. They are progressing fast! For the first time over the past few years I can feel the energy of Evernote team again
  4. True that they didn't promise anything. However by unifying the editor into one single code base, they will free up more resources and be able to fine tune the editor according to user feedback. Before the editor was unified, when they needed to do a simple modification to the editor, the communication between 5 development teams and product managers must be exhausting, and keeping the user experience consistent across all 5 platforms was almost a impossible engineering goal (and why we have this thread here). At least now Evernote team is doing the first step right, so let's hope for the best.
  5. Anybody knows how to sign up (if any) for the "new" beta program? For people who are okay to take the risk and delighted to feedback. I am in beta program of iOS, Windows and Web, but seems there is another channel (maybe nightly build?) of beta out there
  6. @Ian Small, thanks for being transparent to us (and being so sincere too). This is the first time in the past few years that I have a feeling that Evernote is moving to the right direction. Over the years I have made a few request here, and saw many other users' requests. Most of them are about styling glitches, web clipper issue, inconsistent UI across platforms. And most of the time we get minor patches and bug fixes here and there. But we all know it is not how it should be done. We all know that the note format and the editor have to be rebuilt from the ground up, so that the team won't be wasting time and effort, like whenever you want to add a new formatting function, you have to work over 5 platforms to get it done, and the note formatting is way too complicated to maintain by today's standard. It was really sad to see our beloved product withering not because the team was not working hard, but was working hard in the wrong direction. So glad to see the new unified editor coming. I am okay that we won't have new functions in the coming few months, and Evernote team works full throttle on the editor. And I am glad too that Evernote being transparent to us, so that we know we are waiting for something nice, unlike before we were making request here without any reply. Now we can give time to Evernote to polish the product, because we know the team is working on it. I am currently in the beta channel of iOS, Windows and Web platform, whenever the new editor is ready, throw it at me, and i am very delighted to give feedback. Thanks again for the Behind the Scene videos, and keep up the good work!
  7. That means 2 things to me: Dark Mode is coming to Windows platform with this unified editor across platforms. Finally the check box won't extend the line height with no reason!!! Brilliant move Evernote, keep it up and let us know what you are working on.
  8. It's been a while since my last reply, and seems there is an answer to the Windows dark mode here: Evernote is building an unified editor for all 5 platforms, instead of maintaining them separately, meaning that if other platforms have dark mode, Windows will have it too. And the font and styling of the new editor is also simplified, so even it was not mentioned in the video, it is very likely it will have dark mode built-in. P.S.: Glad to see EN being more open to users and let us know what is going on with their development. People are willing to wait, just let us know that the team is actually working on it.
  9. Yes that's what I have said we would only have Dark Mode "only if it cost Evernote nothing". That means this issue will never get the resource needed, and we will never get Dark Mode for Windows version. What I don't feel good here is that the reply is not honest about the current situation. If they are not going to give us Dark Mode, just say it. Don't mislead people with UWP/Win32 sh*t.
  10. Not sure if this is a official reply from Evernote (because @dconnet is shown as staff) but I hope this is not. This reply is misleading and irresponsible from a company that have so many paid subscribers. I am a software developer so I understand what that UWP argument means. But what this reply implied was that Evernote would give us dark mode, only if it cost them nothing (as low cost as just adding a new parameter to the current editor API). Evernote is telling us that we don't have the dark mode because MS doesn't want to implement it. No, that's wrong. Evernote doesn't give us the Dark Mode because Evernote doesn't want to implement it. They just want to see if they can wait until MS implement the dark mode for Win32 Editor. It is very irresponsible reply, because after all, who get the money from paid subscribers, MS or Evernote? Then why blame MS on this? The reply is misleading because, there are so many tools I am using on Windows with dark mode/theme. Just name a few that I use more often, VSCode and Notion (Electron based) both support custom theme very well. Tools as simple as Simple Note support dark mode as well. Old tool like Eclipse and notepad++, at least have dark theme editors (Eclipse is SWT based, NP++ should be Win32). And Visual Studio also with dark mode (should be Win32 too). So, if it is a technical issue or a architectural design level problem that makes Evernote unable to give us Dark Mode in Windows version, just tell users the truth. Please do not blame another company for your laziness or incapability. Anyway, thanks for replying though, at least we knew that's VERY VERY unlikely we are going to have a Dark Mode in Windows.
  11. It is funny that we have been requesting Dark Mode in this thread for 5 to 6 years, and they finally made it, and they closed the thread. Leaving us Windows users to start a new thread for the same request. Do we have to wait for another 5 years or what?
  12. Windows 10 had long been adding dark mode to their apps, and so do many iOS apps, that's definitely the trend. EN just didn't give a damn about it, seems they are busy promoting their Business product. I won't expect too much from EN, given how old this thread is. EN could be a industry pioneer in giving user the best user experience, but they had just given up the chance.
  13. It is June now and there is still no fix for this.
  14. +1 for dark theme. If you want people stick to your app, give them a dark theme. So that they won't be disturbed by eye stress when they are using your app excessively. I use Evernote everyday, i pay for it, i put all my work note into it, but I still keep a paper notebook for brainstorming and journal, just because I can't stare at the white screen for too long. People age and get old and their eyes will become more sensitive to background light of screens. I can stare at screens all day long in my early 30's but now i am in late 30's, I just can't stare at bright screens at home for too long after 8 hrs of coding on screen at work. Dark theme is more than a aesthetic preference, it is a function, if Evernote wants to be part of people's lives, make it accessible to people.
  15. Thanks a lot for the feedback! Downloaded and installed the v6 beta, it is awesome!
