  1. Have you guys seen Evernote's CEO's response to the version 10 backlash? https://evernote.com/blog/state-of-the-product/ We can see what's slated for future releases here: https://help.evernote.com/hc/articles/360058361833 (not that I care bc for now I'll be using Legacy) Here are quotes I find important: The positives: They can ship improvements faster They're listening to feedback They're using product engagement metrics (real data not random whims) to guide their decisions The bs They're basically admitting 10% of users are using the Legacy version. I don't know why they call that 10% "power" users, or the "most intensive" users. I've seen complaints from people who use Evernote just for recipes and were upset that they couldn't simplify formatting or clip content any more. And I bet more people would use Legacy if they knew about it. They admitted the new release was extremely buggy, but believe releasing a buggy product with missing features was the right decision bc they knew most people wouldn't complain and they wanted to use users as guinea pigs. Or officially, bc they could ship future fixes and bc "power" users could revert to the older version while they work on adding missing features. Well, maybe they're right that the new version will attract more new users, and they have to force changes, particularly UI, on users. But version 10 was extremely buggy, and there's no excuse for releasing something so buggy. There's no reason they couldn't have waited a few more months to iron out major bugs. I don't believe they didn't know of those bugs. I noticed them as soon as I started using it, plus there were reports from beta users. So yeah, no excuses for shipping such an incomplete release.
  2. UI FEEDBACK Not a fan of List View font getting bigger. This makes List View less dense. For example, you see less of the note title in the same amount of horizontal space. (I can live with it though, sigh.) BUGS Search suggestions don't automatically disappear after pressing enter. If I press enter, it means I'm done typing my search terms and only want to see the results. I don't want to continue to see search suggestions. I use List view, and when I click a note shortcut in the sidebar, list view disappears and all I see is the opened note. (Perhaps not that big of a deal.) EVERNOTE MAC FEATURES I MISS "Cmd + R" shortcut to reset search (aka clear all search filters) (It's a pain to have to manually click "clear filters" every time I start a new search) More/better text color options "Cmd + Shift + V" to paste plain text Simplify formatting Touch bar integration Dark mode app with light mode notes in light mode (Hopefully this option will return when Preferences are reinstated.) Local notes for privacy I've already upvoted feature request threads for tabs and custom fonts. Thanks to this thread, I've learned that command+click will open an internal note link in a new window! Thank goodness. I also learned that the CEO of Evernote doesn't use tags and prefers notebooks. I'm kinda gobsmacked that a person like that (i.e. doesn't use Evernote) is running Evernote! I'm heavily dependent on Evernote, and when I switched from Windows to Mac, I was shocked by the differences in Evernote Windows and Evernote Mac. Evernote Mac seemed like the red-headed stepchild bc of slow updates, bugs, and lack of features compared to Evernote Windows. Eventually, I got used to Evernote Mac, but I was still happy to hear Evernote was going to try to unify cross-platform experiences. I've used Evernote long enough to see some of my most annoying bugs get fixed (though not all..), so hopefully Evernote 10 improves quickly. I've noticed a few pros to Evernote 10. For now, I will stick with Legacy Evernote, but I noticed I'm less annoyed by Evernote 10 than I was yesterday, which means I'm slowly getting used to it.
  3. With Notion gaining steam, I worry that Evernote will try to emulate them. I hope Evernote remembers what makes them different from Notion and invests in finding out what their users truly want/need. These are missing features that I've noticed in Evernote Mac. (I realize this thread is categorized as Evernote Windows, but since this thread has the most traction, I'm posting here). FEATURES MISSING IN EVERNOTE MAC 10 The ability to open Evernote note links in a new window Touch bar integration Tabs "Cmd + R" shortcut to reset search Local notes "Ctrl + Shift + V" to paste plain text Simplify formatting The ability to use installed fonts The ability to use any color for your text Without preferences, I can't adjust the settings to my liking. The text in my notes got smaller. I'm not a fan of the list view text getting bigger. I feel like there's less real estate for my tags in the sidebar. But I can get used to the little UI changes. I've also noticed some improvements. I've also noticed bugs, especially with search and sort by. I hope major bugs get ironed out soon and major features get implemented soon Also, I can't believe we're limited to 5 reactions a day. I've been liking comments, and boom! I get a "you have reached your reaction limit" message.
  4. Besides using markdown-esque syntax (triple backticks), you can also use keyboard shortcuts "Cmd + Ctrl + B" on Mac, and "Ctrl + Shift + L" on Windows.
  5. I have the same problem/question. How do we remove Evernote notes from Spotlight? Adding Evernote folders to Spotlight's privacy worked for a while, and then it stopped working. Is there a new Evernote folder location we should add to Spotlight?
  6. For example, look at the attachment below to see how Chrome makes it intuitive to tell which tab is selected and which tab is unselected. Which tab do you think is selected? The first tab or the second tab? The answer is the second tab. Chrome makes the selected tab stand out from the top bar. You can see that the selected tab is dark, while the unselected tab and top bar are both light. In other words, the selected tab stands out from the top bar, while the unselected tabs blend in with the top bar. I don't care if the selected tab is light, while the unselected tabs are dark, or if the selected tab is dark, while the unselected tabs are light. The point is, the selected tab should stand out from the top bar, while the unselected tab should blend in with the top bar. If the top bar is dark, the selected tab should be light to stand out, and the unselected tab should be dark to blend in with the top bar. If the top bar is light, the selected tab should be dark to stand out, and the unselected tab should be light to blend in with the top bar. In Evernote, the top bar is light gray, so the selected tab should be dark gray to stand out from the top bar, and the unselected tabs should be light gray to blend in with the top bar.
  7. When you look at the attachment below, which tab do you think is selected? The first tab or the second tab? The answer is the second tab. It's hard to tell which tab is selected because the selected tab is light gray, which is the same color as the top bar (the toolbar and tab bar). This makes the selected tab blend in with the top bar, when it should stand out from the top bar. Currently, selected tabs are light gray, while unselected tabs are dark gray. I think it should be reversed: the selected tab should be dark gray, and the unselected tabs should be light gray. This is because I think the selected tab should stand out from the top bar. It's more intuitive.
  8. Do you perchance know where the Evernote database is located on MacOS? I googled and found this thread, but the instructions seem to be for an earlier version. I tried clicking `Evernote > About Evernote` while holding the OPT key, but all I see is the TOS. I do not see a link to `Open database folder`. In the past, I added `~/Library/Application Support/com.evernote.Evernote` to my Spotlight exceptions, and that worked for a while. But I think after an update, Evernote started reappearing in my Spotlight searches. And now I'm plagued with the periodic "EvernoteSpotlight wants to use your confidential information...." popup which I continue to deny.
