  1. Got a response to my support ticket... --- Please be advised that Evernote is totally aware of this issue and rests assured that our development team is already working hand in hand to get this issue sorted out as soon as possible. I sincerely apologize that we provided you this experience. It is the exact opposite of what we pride ourselves on. We value our customers and understand how important it is to offer you exceptional service. ---
  2. Seems to mostly happen on the first word on a new line. See below for an example. I've submitted a support request including this video. screen-20210608-202758~2.mp4
  3. The cursor jumping back one character happens to me too, it's infuriating! Seems random, but seems to happen with certain words more than others. Maybe every 5 to 10 words at a guess, and I don't tend to notice to a few words later, so have to go back and correct half a sentence.
  4. Stagnating would be fine, it's the actively going back and breaking things that have work fine for years that's the problem!
  5. The stop-gap "solution" of using the classic editor has revealed another issue... When I edit an existing note in the classic web editor, then view that note in the Android or Windows client, the size of the new/updated text is different. If I then update the text size on Android or Windows, it is different again when viewed in the legacy web client, and vice versa. Setting the text size in one client (Android, web classic, web new, Windows new or Windows "Legacy") seems to be interpreted differently by every other client! Text colours are also inconsistent between platforms, which I have flagged in another thread. I've tried the "Simplify Formatting" button to try and fix up the inconsistent text size, but that also behaves differently on different platforms (ie. whether it removes the text colour, what size the text ends up being afterwards, and whether it removes bold/italic settings). I found this (made up) quote on a Reddit thread which seems sadly accurate... From Evernote's CEO: I'm back to using the new web editor, editing text in Windows Notepad and pasting it in to avoid the classic editor messing up the text formatting. Making a text editor with consistent functionality across multiple platforms must be harder than it looks, but it is pretty core functionality for a note-taking platform! I don't care about fancy new features if I can't consistently author and edit text!!! I've been playing with Notion, and it loads notes (even really long ones) extremely quickly, text editing (including size and colour) is consistent across Windows, Web and Android, and whilst it's missing some Evernote features that I would miss, it has some additional ones that look really nice. I was a very early user of Evernote, I have loved it for over a decade, and have recommended it to lots of people. I really don't want to move 1,000s of notes to a new platform, but unfortunately Evernote seems to be getting worse and worse and if things don't improve soon I may be left with no choice.
  6. Add me to the list of users experiencing this problem for the last week or so. Win 10 with Chrome Version 87.0.4280.88 (Official Build) (64-bit) Cursor regularly jumps to the top of the note, duplicate notes being created and long pauses while saving (ie. the characters I've typed will stop appearing on the screen, and eventually catchup after a 5-20 seconds). As others have said, this is unusable in it's current state. I've taken to typing out blocks of text in Notepad and pasting them in. This is ridiculous.
  7. This drives me crazy too! I spend a lot of time setting the text colour on one device, then carefully copy/pasting that text before editing it on another device to try and keep the colour consistent across a note - but even that doesn't work all the time, with seemingly random colour changes that then seem to become "sticky" and hard to fix. I'm ok with whatever colour palette we get, but I just want it to be the same on every device!
  8. Is it just me, or is this finally fixed?!?! I've got v8.3 and I can copy and paste text, with formatting, and it doesn't turn into a garbled mess! Amazing! Finally! Welcome to the future! Unfortunately it also automatically creates bullet points, which I hate, and I can't find a way to turn it off!
  9. Based on Alexa stats it looks like Evernote's popularity is falling, but it's still very popular... 494th most popular site in the world down from 350th a year ago.
  10. Any update on when/if this will ever be fixed? All I want to be able to do is paste some text into a note without the format getting all messed up!
  11. BTW, I have raised a support ticket. Also, I've installed the Google Chrome Evernote Web App, and it's surprisingly good! In fact (unfortunately) I'd say it's better than the full Windows client.
  12. Add me to the growing list of affected users. I've been happily using the Windows client for years on multiple computers without any issues, but yesterday I started having regular pauses and "Not Responding" in the title bar. The pauses happen when I'm typing and can be from a few seconds up to 10 or 15 seconds and happen at random intervals. Sometimes it will happen every couple of sentences, often it happens multiple times within one word or sentence. It catches up with my typing when it unfreezes, but this is extremely annoying! I've actually reverted to using the web client, because as of yesterday the Evernote Windows client is unusable.
