  1. On Mac, convention is to not update for any of those — so default of 'none' would be consistent there.
  2. The default should be to change 'date updated' only when note content is changed. Make this the default convention. Perhaps include a settings option for users who prefer 'date updated' be changed when changing tags, notebooks, note title (either as a single or separate sub-options).
  3. Search text inside Office docs and PDF — https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/208313388 says, if I read it correctly, that search no longer works in side EN for OCR'd pdfs and one needs to open each pdf found in the EN search in a separate app and repeat the search there in order to find the one pdf you are looking for. That's entirely unworkable. If it's this way on Mac, I'll never upgrade. Give us the old iOS EN back.
  4. That answer is a lie hidden (see answer from below) but still unworkable (see 2nd answer from below; often opening the pdf just gets a spinning cursor; if the pdf does open, it's halfway off-screen and you can't move it).
  5. I've only upgraded iOS (except for one old iPad); having seen that disaster I haven't and won't upgrade on Mac. Unfortunately, legacy versions are only available for Mac and Windows.
  6. Not only select text, while EN still finds notes containing a PDF that contains the search string, it no longer indicates -where- in the PDF the search string appears. It also doesn't let you search within a PDF. This makes it EXCRUCIATING to search to find the desired note, as many notes (and the PDFs within them) might contain the same search string — but only one of them is the desired note (PDF). PDF search was a PREMIUM feature — and a main reason we've been paying — and paying for multiple accounts — all these years. We're looking elsewhere.
  7. This was one of the most valuable features; without it, finding the desired note is drastically slower and EN is pretty much useless to me. Support says “This is one of a handful of features we are still considering.”. Please add your vote!!
  8. In addition to missing Skitch, I can no longer select text from PDFs; also find doesn’t locate string occurrences within PDFs. Are those features returning?
  9. https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/requests says that chat hours are Sunday 2:00 PM to Friday 5:00 PM CST. Does that mean 1) 3 hours each day from Sun-Fri ? or 2) continuously from Sun 2 pm thru Friday 5 pm? If the former, that would typically be written Sun–Fri 2–5 pm CST. Oh, … just saw the 'Due to limited holiday staffing, chat will be unavailable from Thursday, July 2 at 5:30 PM (CDT) to Monday, July 13 at 8 AM (CDT).' notice at the top.
  10. I pm’d everybody above a couple of weeks ago and 1 added a vote (after some difficulty). Ever since that voting mechanism was instituted, I’ve written in repeatedly about its invisibility, awkwardness, general poor implementation, etc., etc., and the fact that people aren’t using it because they don’t notice it, but the damn thing hasn’t changed. Maybe if you create a ticket on your own for that??
  11. To promote this suggestion, tap the up arrow at the top to the left of “Annotation Summary …”.
  12. To anyone who likes this suggestion (to show all annotations for a pdf), pls tap the ‘up arrow’ at the top left of this page by my OP. Evernote implemented a non-obvious voting mechanism that generally goes unnoticed. (And it’s not that the votes mean much, but it does show support.) thx
  13. Also, removal of this feature was -not- announced in the release, so waiting for 8.1 was not an adequate strategy. In good news, Support filed a 'formal' request with Dev; some changes are in process there, one consequence of which might be more thorough release notes.
  14. Agree. As a matter of general principle, feature loss for whatever reason is not a plan -- particularly for a tool that is a core element of user workflow. Features should not be removed but rather added at least as (and preferentially as user-configurable) options on all platforms. In a broader sense, is a feature reduction as it makes the app substantially less usable. I raised the issue for user-configurability of the formatting bar with Support and that was passed to the Dev team. Perhaps the same could be done for other contexts, e.g., the home page as well.
  15. I’ll say this: It’s not available on MacOS. Apparently to cohere the platforms, they removed the feature on iOS rather than make it available on all platforms. I relied on it and can't wait for restoration. Beyond that the particulars don’t matter here.
