  1. @RicD, I am exploring a collection of options as well. I'm already an avid google drive user and I found a great visual planning tool, BeeCanvas, and a mindmapping tool, MindMup that integrates with it and might provide something that I was missing with Evernote entirely but also serves to underscore that moving all of my writing into Google docs would be the hot ticket. I will probably also move all of my bookmarks into Google keep. For my more important information, projects and research (genealogy, health etc), that I need to be searchable and accessible, I am looking at NibusNote, which is very similar to the new Evernote web products but with the ability to select tags for search, which is at least half of my battle with the new version of Evernote web (multi note select only in the app, which is on par with Evernote). DropBox Paper has promise but it's not there yet, for me. I used to use simplenote, which is still charming so it might be a good fit for the less intensive stuff. Kdan noteledge looks amazing but a lot of it's features are focused at apple and I'm a PC. I explored these options in February the first time this happened but then, once they resolved it, felt (perhaps falsely lulled into) a sense that Evernote just had a serious customer service oversight and had corrected it. Shame on me. At any rate, I have, again, started the process of cleaning up my notes for import into the tools of my choice. Evernote and I had a good run, I suppose. Of course, all of the information in this post was based upon my referencing my notes in NimbusNote, because Evernote isn't functional as I write this. Yay, Evernote?
  2. @DTLow Sure. #1 is just after doing the search. You can see the note count at the bottom of the search results panel. Then I scroll down and back up using the scroll bar in the middle panel and screenshot 2 is the result. You can still see the post count at the bottom but all the results after the first two are just... gone. Once this happens, the only way to use evernote again is to reload and start over with search after search, hopefully more specific so that I don't have to scroll to find it in the list. This makes searches for a note among thousands - not possible. I opened ANOTHER ticket with Evernote, who's initial response - again - is 'use the new version of web'. But I can't because the new version doesn't have suggested searches or the ability to multi select notes, which ALSO makes managing and searching through many notes, notebooks and tags untenable. I'm hoping that, again, they come back with something more amenable to keeping long term customers who are more likely to have more notes and need the ability to manage and search them easily.
  3. @kgg, It's happening again! Search results are disappearing. Again, I started with support who is again telling me I have to migrate to the new web version and still, the new version doesn't do suggested searches or multi-select, making it entirely unusable with the number of notes, labels and notebooks I'm working with. To add insult to injury, I can't use the windows app either because google authenticate isn't working. In the meantime, I can't get at my data. I'm so frustrated! I have tickets open on both issues. Any hope of getting a fix?
  4. @kgg, you just made my week. There are literally tears in my eyes. I don't know how to tell you how painful the last week has been... the struggle was real. Looking forward to tomorrow!
  5. I'm an involuntary convert to the new version of Evernote web because of an issue in the old version that I'm told will not be fixed but makes my notes entirely inaccessible. So. I'm trying to make it work. Trying so hard. I've encountered another gotcha that I'm hoping I'm missing something simple on. How. Do you select multiple notes? In the old version, you just ctrl + click. In the new version, I've tried ctrl, shift and alt. Tell me there is a way. Please.
  6. As it turns out, it's web based so one can determine what platform it's being viewed on and adjust the css accordingly. On a web browser, I shouldn't see white space just because it helps mobile users. That would show a terrible grasp on web development so I'm hoping that isn't the reason.
  7. Yes - this. I'm an involuntary user of the new version now, I guess, given that I'm having a problem in the old version that I'm told will not be fixed. One of my bigger challenges in the new version is the layout. It's so big and bubbly - there is SO MUCH white space (a solid inch and a half of white space to the right of the notes list?!), meanwhile, I'm seeing so little of the information I'd want to see - like a longer list of notes, or the list of notebooks and tags alongside my notes. It takes more clicks to get to everything. I'm not loving it. I am hoping for a 'compact view' option or 'smaller font, less white space' option or something to make the view more functional.
  8. I've been informed that the old version of Evernote web is no longer supported so the problem I was having would not be fixed. So, I'm trying to use the new version. In the old version, if I started typing something that was part of a tag, it would auto suggest the tag, I could click on it, and it would be added to the search field. This made it possible for me to name my tags something that made them easier to find on the tag list but also usable in the search without having to remember the entire contents of my tag list ver batim. So, for example, I have a tag called "content headstones". It's easy to find all of the tags related to content types (headstones, artifacts, documents etc) in one section of my tags list and also, in the old version, easy to use that tag in search by typing "hea" and then evernote would suggest the rest. In the new version, the only way to search for a tag within a notebook is to type the full search parameters from memory, making more involved tags next to impossible to use and making it far more difficult to search. So now, instead of typing hea, I need to first, remember what the actual full name of the tag was and then type in tag:"content headstone" (with quotes because the new version doesn't tolerate spaces in tags). With more than 7000 notes, the combination of notebooks and tags is critical for me to be able to find what I need. I used evernote because it WAS easy to organize and then find my notes. I use a gui rather than a command line tool because I want to point and click. Please add suggestions (back) to the search.
  9. I sent feedback in previously via a support ticket and I have not kept up with this thread - so I apologize in advance for repeats. 1) I use evernote to store bookmarks. On a regular basis, I search for a bookmark by tag and click on the url associated with the note. The beta made this almost impossible. The URL is not displayed by default and even once I go into info, it's not clickable. The URLs within the body of the notes also seem to be hit or miss clickable. 2) My tags have multiple words in them.. the first word groups tags together by type, the second word is related to the content type (example : "content newspaper"). Non-beta search form suggests search terms if I only type part f it in. So if I type 'news', under the searchform, I get recent searches, notbooks and tags that contain 'news', including 'tag:content newspaper'. So they can be added from the drop down under the search field with a click. That made it possible to have more complex tags without memorizing the exact tags or having to initiate a tag search from the tags list and it was super easy to combine tags and keywords to search. Beta doesn't have that. I have to either click the tag for the tag list or manually search by remembering the exact tag name. 3) searching two word tags (tag:content newspaper) returns no results. Clicking the same tag in the tags list returns results. 4) I have done several searches in which it gives me a results count and says there are results but none of the results display. I have not been able to duplicate it consistently and I don't know what I am doing to cause it. 5) printing - I haven't figured out how to print a note yet without making the note full screen and using my browser print function. Printing in other than full screen mode prints everything but the note that is in focus I toyed with it for about 15 minutes before I gave up. I'm sure it's some really simple gotcha - but maybe it needs to be more obvious. In non-beta version, I appreciate being able to right click a note in the notes list and click print. 6) Selecting multiple notes to move to a notebook or tag is either no longer possible or another cleverly hidden mechanism. I use this on a regular basis to organize stuff that's in my evernote inbox from all the various places I send notes from. 7) With the beta version, I was constantly scrolling through my notebook list. With the larger font and less indention under stacks, it is tougher to get through or visually process. 8) When inside a note and assigning it to a notebook, the dropdown is not sorted hierarchically within stacks, which is inconsistent with every other place the notebooks are listed, which makes it a bit tougher to find the notebook. On the up side, I like the look. I like the text format controls only appearing when I select text. I like how bullet points and checkboxes and similar items are hidden unless I need them. I like the idea of stuff being presented when you need it. I think it has a way to go in order to stay as effortlessly and infinitely usable as it is now though.
