  1. Just launched today with a splash screen telling me about the "Personal" thing and the Google Calendar integration. Went to integrate from Evernote to Google Calendar, open browser window, connect to my preferred Google account (there are several stored but went for the standard one) and it's stuck. Error within Google as displayed: "Something went wrong Sorry, something went wrong there. Try again." message with a NEXT button. Button leads to a screen that just says: "400 That's an error. The server cannot process the request because it is malformed. It should not be retried. That’s all we know." Do I need to make the Gmail/Google account the one that's linked to my Evernote? The one I use for Evernote is NOT Google. This should be made clear if that's the case. Or, even better, let me link Google Calendar and not make me link my Gmail account to Evernote. I should be able to have Evernote paid for and managed by whatever email account there is and not be locked in, IMHO. Seems like a nice feature but needs to, uh, work.
  2. wow ... i just realized my earliest Evernote goes back to March 13, 2011 ... I started paying a year after that. Seriously ... this warrants a refund. $7.99 / month x however many months this has been going on.
  3. And here's yet another annoyance and bug ... further evidence of this awful user experience with what I thought was pretty good software up to now. Every time I get the update new version release popup ... it is BLANK!! In the screenshot below it's that blank little popup that says "Evernote" withi nothing in it. At least, that's what I think should be in there. I have seen this screen popup with the announcement of a new release and options update or not. Of course, who knows what that screen is for?!?! C'mon people. I'm seriously spending time with Notion and this is the kind of failure on development that happens when you lose business and it sends appreciative customers running for something similar. As a paying customer this should be prioritized or we'll walk! (notes and sensitive data has been intentionally removed in the screenshot)
  4. I'm up there above in one of the comments on this thread but I'll update with a new bug that may be the result of the latest version (which I guess attempted to fix the problem but didn't quite). I will come back to Evernote and there will only a single Note open, the rest of the window and UI is gone. There's no way to get it back, there are no other windows available, hidden or otherwise. Perhaps this is triggered by opening a Note in a separate window, which I do now and then. Regardless, this is NOT the way Evernote works or any app for that matter. The parent window for an app should always be available somehow. So, yeah, still broken. Not the same way, but broken.
  5. I posted above (and repasting below) but boy oh boy 10.6.9 is WORSE! Today Evernote not only did it's disappearing note trick, it completely failed on a quit and relaunch. I have the Evernote menu (File, Edit, etc) but nothing below that. Went and redownloaded and reinstalled and it's the same situation. When I have time, maybe I'll restart this machine, or play around with some plist files but I DON'T HAVE ANY TIME FOR THIS. NOT WHAT I SIGNED UP FOR! sorry for screaming ... but here's a screenshot
  6. DITTO DITTO AND DITTO!! I have NEVER seen an app do this ... a popup that sits in front of ALL applications just to tell me about upcoming releases?!? Are you kidding?? I'll just mention, the only reason I'm in the forum was to report a really annoying bug with displaying messages that has about a million comments on that topic. That's where your attention should be not on announcing upcoming release. Fix the bugs! You want to announce how great your software is, not how great it is going to be.
  7. I am having the same problem. I can see the notes after I quit and restore the app but reading all of these comments about people not even being able to see any of their notes and they're gone is awful. But even inexplicably not being able to see the note and having to quit and restore is ridiculous. And then having to come in here and pore over all of these comments and workarounds is a waste of time. I went into Evernote just before to do something else. Then I hit the Feedback button, filled out that form, then wander in here and spend another 10 minutes looking at comments of the same issue going back months and having to write this comment. I'll have to trace back to whatever the F I was going to do in Evernote when this started 15 minutes ago. I expect better as Premium subscriber and a fan of Evernote since ... well I don't want to waste any more time trying to figure out how far back I have notes but it's been many years! Evernote is better than this! v 10.5.7 build 2171 public Editor: v114.1.14753 Service: v1.25.2 © 2019 - 2021 Evernote Corporation. All rights reserved
  8. slight oddity (bug?) on scrolling down on the mac client under Notebooks tab: i couldn't see Trash until I resized the window and refreshed the tab by clicking twice. initially, it just stopped at however many notebooks filled the vertical column on the left.
  9. This was just some weirdness I never really looked into: new note titles appearing populated with arcane references to what I thought was Facebook. I just ignored it and, in all cases, deleted what appeared there and put my own title in. Then I decided to look into this b/c it was just too weird and bothersome. I just spent some time reading this topic which explains the note titles are some predictive typing feature in iOS that pulls data from my calendar. (Don't even get me started as to how or why my Google calendar pulls in Facebook event data which is 99% of the time just some weird event some friend has that I care nothing about.) I can ignore it in Calendar and Facebook, but to have it popup in Evernote really made no sense whatsoever. It doesn't explain why I can't turn it off in this thread, but I poked around and found the feature on the iPad in Settings>General. So maybe this is an update for people still bothered by this feature not knowing how to turn it off. This thread, which was most active in 2012, didn't conclude with the answer. http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/24126-bug-calendar-title-shows-up-as-note-title-in-evernote-why/page-3?locale=en Otherwise, I'm a big fan of Evernote, but this was really absurd. Thanks for listening... lee
