Everyone here should go to the first post and vote it up please!
I hated the new web version for a week – because I was switched over by Evernote without my permission – then I learned to love it. It only took days to like it ... then I discovered that the merge was not in the new version (and was in the older version). Now torn between the two. How could the new version not have this feature? What other functionality have we lost? Why is the issue treated like a feature request? Should it not be treated like a bug or design flaw? We once had it. Now we don't.
It is bad enough that the Windows desktop version is buggy (frequently slows down and usually doesn't sync well) It's annoying to use the merge feature there. But it also has a different look and feel from both the old and new web versions. That's not a good thing.
Just adding my vote in favor of adding the "Merge" as a fix (higher priority) rather than a feature request.
I still like the product – just frustrated at the continuity hiccup.
