  1. I am so fed up with the bulleted lists. New random bullets are constantly being created, sometimes over existing bullets and are impossible to remove. I'm not talking about the shift + enter behavior nor copying and pasting bulleted content from another source. I'm talking simply about unexpected bullet behavior within the application that is not dictated by any sort of rhyme or reason, and creates broken formatting that cannot be removed. When creating a new note this is a nuisance. When this happens with an older, longer, note and effectively ruins the formatting for a collection of bullets that might have taken days to collect, this is truly a service-killing feature. I want to love Evernote, I really do, but stuff like this makes me wonder whether management has actually ever used the client. I'm sure this is something the developers could solve if it was prioritized -- it's a very cut and dried feature that is flat out broken. Along with the bugginess that I've posted about here http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/47695-unintended-ctrl-space-causing-cursor-to-jump-back/ I really have to wonder what is being prioritized over this. Is everything that's not a phone / tablet app just being sunsetted?
  2. I use hotkeys Ctrl + b, Ctrl + u, Ctrl + i to format text in my notes as I type. So, as a user, when I am bolding something, my keye sequence looks like: Ctrl+b, this is me typing the stuff I want to be bold, Ctrl+b, Space, this is me typing stuff I don't want to be bold any more. Except about 30% of the time that I hit Ctrl+b and then space after typing something in bold, my cursor "skips back" to the beginning of the document -- or the beginning of the paragraph!!! I've deduced that this is some kind of timing issue between when I release the Ctrl button and when I hit the space bar to start the next word. This behavior is infuriating! You can't see the cursor "skip back" until you start typing, which means you then have to cut and paste it back onto the end of the line that you "skipped back" from, which can itself take a good amount of time if you have a note of any substantial length. Every time it happens I want to switch to someone else's product, and it happens at least once a note. Suffice it to say I have never encountered an issue with this manner of typing in ANY other word processing software. Not ever. I really cannot see any use case that would warrant this behavior for Evernote, or why its designers wouldn't immediately change this beavior. This is seriously annoying and needs to be addressed.
  3. I am coming to Evernote from Google Docs, which does everything you mention here and a whole lot more. There are many reasons that I could get into to describe how Evernote works better for my purposes (which by and large don't even include the "browser" features, though I am learning to love them too!). However, there are many things -- not just his issue with resizing pictures -- that Evernote is going to have to do better at. If they don't, someone else is going to. The barrier to entry for creating apps and services is only getting lower.
  4. +1. If I'm going to have to be opening up the photo in another application, well, I could just resize it in paint or PhotoShop. Absolutely no reason not to be able to do that in the app (Desktop or Mobile). Skitch very cool, but come on. This is silly.
