  1. I think that you are being prudent. I think this is a great opportunity for Evernote to move in the right direction.
  2. Again, use Google then---you are missing my point--If Security is your only issue then go ahead. But don't tell me Google is 1. To be trusted with any information (thats pretty ironical isn't it) and 2. That Google offers the same features that Evernote does.
  3. I can see Security being a killer for many Evernote users---and that makes much sense. But don't let anyone tell me that the other other applications, in this particular ecosystem are anywhere near as functional as Evernote. Take Bear for instance---great security scheme, but from what I hear, its not a professional application and lacks many of the features that I rely upon. I'm not even going to get into the horrific synching issues with OneNote--just horrible. Also, the constant whining about Evernote isn't helping at this point, because nothing management does is going to satisfy those who complain on this forum. I guess they have lost their trust--so be it. Last but not least, I like the idea of a community advisory panel and I think its a step in the right direction. The problem is, and it is a problem, is that each user has pet features that he or she would like to see incorporated, many of which are of no interest to others! A panel might be able to come to consensus on features and improvements and push management towards them. Anyway, the threats of jumping ship are getting tedious, almost child like---good luck---its not the end of the world and trust me this is a case where the pastures are not greener across the county!
  4. Played around with OneNote---horrible--synching is miserable. I'll hang in there with Evernote---I've always been resigned to the fact that once I store my data on someone else's servers, I'm pretty much at their mercy. It goes with the territory.
  5. Obviously nothing has happened since I first posted this in 2014.
  6. We live in the era of FREE. A lot has to do with this bizarre concept that somehow everything on the Internet should be free ie. it doesn't cost anything to develop and maintain applications. Oh, woe be me, I can only use Evernote on two platforms--life has ended as I know it .
  7. Sorry for the late response, but that seemed to do the trick. Thanks so much for your prompt answer.
  8. I have a Fuji ScanSnap ix500 scanner. When I go to scan a document, I have it set to scan both sides. When I send it to Evernote, I get two separate notes, one for each side. Is there a setting that I am missing?
  9. At this point, as a collaborative tool, I couldn't recommend Evernote. The big problem we are having is sharing of stacks and notebooks. 1. You can't share stacks--to me a big drawback in any organization (again, this is not for personal use) 2. Your only option is share separate notebooks. This might or might not work for you. We had a case this week where we wanted to share 10 notebooks with a colleague. In order to do that, we would have share each notebook separately---a royal pain in the neck. If Evernote would address these issues, I could wholeheartedly recommend it as a business tool
  10. I need to share about 10 notebooks with a colleague. Is it possible to share all ten at once or do I have to share and send sharing email for each one?
  11. Problem is I have almost 50 notebooks. I sure would like it if we could just share stacks.
  12. I am trying to share a stack with a colleague. As Evernote doesn't allow this, I came up with the following solution. I will export the stack to Dropbox, allowing my colleague to access it. I understand that this will not allow her to make changes or additions, but that's not the issue for us. She just needs access to the information. The idea would be to send her an updated .enex via Dropbox each week. Will this work, and what do you think the draw backs will be? One concern is that each new .enex will be saved to her Evernote account and thus she will have redundant notes. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.
  13. I wonder if anyone has ever done an analysis to determine if these problems are platform specific. In other words, do Mac users generally have fewer issues then Windows users?
  14. I just started using Evernote in November of 2013, so my perspective is that of a person who hasn't been part of the history of this product. I should also say that I am from the Apple world. I can honestly say that its been a great experience so far. I have not experienced the problems that many mention in this thread. I do find the iOsx version that I use on my Iphone to be totally useless. I have replaced it with the third party application Clever, which the people at Evernote should take a look at because it is miles ahead of Evernote for iOsx. The only other issue I have with Evernote is the inability to share stacks, but I mentioned that in an earlier thread and understand the other point of view. I think that writing a program for so many platforms is very difficult. As I said, as an Apple user, I find Evernote to be excellent and have had no crashes, lost data etc. Everything has synched well between all my devices and this application has made my work life so much easier. I do hope it continues this way, and I really hope that all those who are having issues, stick with it and that the company hears and acts on their issues.
