  1. @Saskia: Thanks for the turn off hint. Unfortunately I can't follow. The icon brings up the settings page. In which section can I turn it off? I have the german equivalents of Account Summary, Personal Settings, Reminders, Points, Safty (with subcategories) and Payments (with subcategories).


    @righteousdork: I guess it also searches all my personal notebooks (didn't test though). However, it does only search one shared notebook at a time (owned by other evernote users). My problem is that I have a lot of shared notebooks and mainly work with those.

  2. One more thing: Links to other notes are trying to open the Desktop app (which is great working on the desktop app). However, I would prefer if a link to a note in the webapp would open it in the web app (since many people are probably using the webapp when they don't want or cannot use the desktop app i.e. on Linux).


    We use several notes linking to each other to organize manuals at work. If I am in the web app I now have to search for each link sepparately which is super cumbersome and takes a lot of time.


    Also the going back and forth buttons are absent which made this process extremely swift in the desktop app (not sure about the old web app).

  3. Hi everybody,

    I just want to share my experience with the beta version - mostly to the evernote guys, but if some other users can help, I appreciate a thousand times!


    1) I don't get how I can search across multiple shared notebooks. Everytime I log in, I have to select the notebook I want to search in. After I opend it for the first time, I can select it as a search option (but only after loading it once). But still, I can only search one notebook at a time and not select multiple... am I missing something?


    2) Please add a permanent search bar. The additional click is reducing my productivity. It's like google, but first you have to open the search bar from a menu. In my case, I first have to open the shared notebook and if I do not remember which one it is, I have to go through each of them. So searching went from the one click killer feature to the average 5-10 click I am in pain feature. In my opinion, the search function is the core functionality of evernote.


    3) Shared notebooks I added to my favorites do not show up as favorites online, but have an empty space (which links correctly).


    4) I didn't find any button to give feedback in the beta. I wouldn't mind to give feedback with a convenient text field somwhere in the beta. I think, you would get more feedback for little things.


    5) Please let me turn off the beta version. Where can I do that?


    6) Other than that, I think it is a good approach to reduce clutter and make everything minimalistic and clean. However, never ever make the search function in any way less powerful than it was before. How much worse is it? I am actually considering to run Linux in a virtual machine on a mac host in order to have the mac desktop app on the host. And for somebody developing on Linux that is going quite far.


    After all: Awesome work with the desktop app: I love it.
