  1. This might be related to the PDF Preview issue. While using annotation mode, I'm seeing the PDF go white or at least a big portion of it will blank out behind the area I'm adding and moving an annotation. Specifically, I'm adding text annotations to a PDF document. If I wait or click around to other pages of the PDF, it eventually comes back. Here are some repro steps: 1) Open and annotate a PDF multi-page document using the text tool. 2) Save it. 3) Open it again. 4) Move the annotated text around the screen. If this doesn't cause it to blank out, move to the next page in the multi-page form and then go back and move the text around again. The background started flashing for me and eventually, it went white and text and images that were part of the PDF disappeared while I was moving the annotated text. https://cl.ly/3o071m0q2M3h
  2. As I understand it, the separation of Personal and Business is a requirement of some companies. Unless there is separation, they won't deploy Evernote. Companies don't like it when employees co-mingle their data between personal and business. With that said, I think we would all agree it's an inconvenience. Like Stacey's comment, I would focus on providing Evernote suggestions on how to improve your specific workflow without changing the fundamental model. Separating personal and business might be something required from an Evernote business perspective to land more enterprise customers but great shortcuts or features for power users to speed their workflow between the 2 worlds is probably an area the Evernote Mac team has some leeway to add functionality.
  3. When I download the Beta link it wants to open it in Dropbox???? Any help is appreciated, I need to be able to print a checklist with checkboxes for a convention next week.

      There is always a link in my forum posts.  Try this. http://bit.ly/1NUQNhA.


  5. Ahh, you meant Windows. Sorry about that. I'm not sure. I'll ping them to let them know this is a feature you'd like to see.
  6. We've had this ability for a month. Just go to the formatting tab in preferences in Evernote for Mac 6.3 and turn it off.
  7. This is definitely on our radar. We agree that this would make formatting a note quicker and easier. Technically we're focused on moving all of our platforms to use a common editor first after which it should make it easier to add note editing features quickly and consistently across our apps.
  8. Is anyone else seeing this. I still can't reproduce the issue. What image format are you using?
  9. I can't reproduce this issue. Can you tell me what image format you're using? Also how did you get the image into Evernote? Did you drag from a web page into Evernote? Sometimes this causes problems because I think there may be an issue with us picking up the extension on the drag and drop operation and if we don't have the extension then there are issues when you drag it to the desktop. Not positive but I seem to remember issues with that flow.
  10. We made this change based on what we were seeing in support. Support found that many of the people they were helping who reported losing data actually deleted their notes by accident and thankfully we were able to recover their notes from the trash. I realize it's a pain for people who liked the old way and some will think it's a bug but we really wanted to make sure we decreased the number of people who accidentally deleted their notes and I think this solves that problem. There are still lots of ways to delete a note. The trash button in the note itself. Right click in the note list and of course the new key command. I'm hoping you can find an alternative that meets your work flow.
  11. This does appear to be broken in 6.3. We're starting to investigate it. In my quick test of previous versions of the app I'm able to get the notebook to be remembered but not the actual note itself. I tried version 6.2, 6.1 and 6.0.11.
  12. We are re-evaluating all parts of the application but have nothing to announce yet. During this process we have to look at both the features that are used by lots of people like search and those that aren't used that much but are popular with hard core users like tags and find a path that improves the product for all types of users. Right now we're focused on search and opportunistically improving areas of tags that we can move quickly on. Please continue to highlight the areas you feel need the most work. I am reading these and it's helping me prioritize things for our hard core users. This. A thousand times, THIS! I think this design is to notify you at a glance which tags match your search criteria exactly and which don't. If you click in the body of the Tag area and take the cursor out of the search field all Tags will be easily readable. This is indeed an Apple bug. We've reported it several times and Apple fixed it in Yosemite but broke it again in El Capitan. There's not much we can do here but wait for Apple to fix it.
  13. Understood. This is just a bug that we didn't catch until now. By the way, in 6.3 we did make the tag auto-complete faster for a large number of tags (>2K). Hopefully you'll see a difference when typing a tag in the note editor.
  14. We just discovered a possible issue in Mac 6.3 when a customer has hundreds of tags and they are setting up a new system. Basically every time there is a new tag added we update a bunch of stuff and normally this is unnoticeable by people. However, if one has hundreds of tags and they are setting up Evernote for the first time, their system can slow down because we're trying to update a bunch of stuff all at once. We have a fix that we'll release in 6.4 Beta 1 on or around 12/21. For now if you run into this please just let Evernote run in the background and complete downloading all of the tags. If you want to use Evernote during this time I would recommend using the web client. After it's done, the system will go back to normal. We don't think this should affect many people but wanted to let everyone know.
  15. Thanks for pointing this out and getting it back on my radar. We'll investigate. Thanks for posting this issue. I think JMichael might be right in that it's been there for awhile but it's intermittent and therefore hard to track down. If others are seeing it please post your exact steps and provide as much detail as you can like the image type used or where the content came from originally or how was it created. In these cases there is probably a specific sequence of steps that causes the bug but we won't be able to fix unless we can reproduce it reliably.
