  1. I'm not sure if I'm really "in-sync" with your technical language, but OK. My Android phone seemed to sync just fine, but it took at least half an hour for the document to arrive on my Windows PC. A document that I scanned with my phone and that I had to send to my client ASAP, so you understand my predicament. Working with Evernote used to be smooth in terms of workflow, now I'm feeling like it's more of a hindrance.
  2. I agree! I'm sitting here wasting time because Evernote refuses to sync for some reason. Evernote 10 is really terrible; I can't get used to it. I'm a paying customer since 2009 and I'm seriously considering migrating to something else.
  3. I scan documents with CamScanner on my phone all the time. I used to be able to select click Share in CamScanner and send the pdf over to Evernote on Android. Since the latest update (10.4) that doesn't work anymore. I get the New Note dialog and I can click Save, however the file name is truncated to .pd instead of .pdf and when I sync and try to open the document on Windows, there's just a weird little object in there that I can't do anything with. When I manually repair the filename to .pdf, it still goes wrong. I can share the file from CamScanner to Adobe Reader on my phone and then it opens just fine. I did receive Android 11 on my Samsung S10 recently as well. Maybe that interferes?
  4. I'm also running into problems the last couple of weeks: keep getting 'Internal error. Please, try again and contact Evernote support'. Both on Edge and Outlook. Please help, I use the clipper all the time! Bart
  5. Correct, welcome to the club. The old way was nice and quick. The new way is inefficient and quite annoying in my opinion.
  6. This works for searches, but not when you're adding tags to notes.
  7. Fair point. So what you suggest is that I put like a letter 'z' in front of my old-trip labels, so that they come up as bottom suggestions. I could do that. And to your point, it would allow me to just type in Madrid. I think you just changed my mind and substring search is the better option.
  8. Thanks for helping us figure out work-arounds/solutions. However, I think your technique doesn't work for me: I don't re-tag notes, I move a tag "project name" from it's parent "projects open" to a another parent "projects closed". Other than that I think your suggestions are useful for filtering out notes.
  9. I use a system very much like the one you are describing. Still I would like to have the all tags view back, because I regularly move tags(-hierarchies) from one parent to another. Example: move a project tag from parent "Projects Open" to "Projects Closed". With dozens of projects I now have to sit and wait for the whole list to (slowly) scroll by until I reach my destination. Plus the all tags view gave a much better overview. I mean, why not bring the all tags view back?
  10. I would love it to be user configurable. Currently I rely on "prefix" search for tags not to show up. In other words if "substring" search was introduced everywhere I would have way too many tags pop up. This is already a problem when I do a tag search in the new left pane. As an example: I have tags like "2016 06 Madrid" for all my trips (30+ per year). As soon as the trip is over, I prefix the tag with a period (like ".2016 06 Madrid") so that when I start typing 2016 not all my old trips start popping up.
  11. Your hierarchies can also be destroyed by simply moving them. I found this out the painful way. This is a side-effect of the new auto-select children feature, which has probably been introduced to assist with the new styling options. Whenever you select a parent tag, it's children will be selected automatically. As soon as you move the parent the whole tree will be flattened into an alphabetical list. The logic behind this still escapes me. This is destructive behaviour, without a clear intent from the user and with potential disastrous consequences that cannot be undone and therefore should be qualified as a bug. The way to avoid this is to de-select 'autoselect children' in the settings.
  12. I'm sorry to be such a whiner about the new way of handling tags. But I'm really starting to miss how the old search box worked. You could just start to type in the name of a tag and a list of applicable tags would appear. So nice and easy. Now, the search box only works for text searches. Sure, I know you can still search for tags. But it's way more cumbersome now. You either have to go to the Tags label in the left pane - which for me often involves scrolling up multiple pages because I have so many tags. Or you can expand the search box, click on the tags icon and search for a tag that way. But this involves more clicks than necessary in my opinion, plus the expanded search box takes up too much real estate anyway (what's the use case for being informed all-the-frikkin'-time about how many documents in the trash can fit your search criteria???). I know the old design wasn't perfect, but it was sooo much more efficient. The new design is prettier, but I would gladly trade it in for the old. This is, after all, supposed to be a productivity tool, right? Could we at least have a super-quick way to search for tags back? Thanks! PS: thanks for bringing back saved searches, that was awesome!
  13. Like JMichaelTX I'm also kind of stunned by this respone. The more robust tagging system is what used to set Evernote apart from, for example, OneNote. Tags are a much more powerful organizing principle than folders, but it seems Evernote is not appreciating / dogfooding this aspect as much as you'd expect. This was already visible in for instance the problematic handling of tags when sharing notes with other users. The current development is really concerning to me and makes me wonder about Evernote's vision for the product. I migrated to Evernote from Lotus Notes (which has a solid multi-user tagging system). I was really hoping not to have to go through another migration any time soon again.
