  1. Ideally, the user should be able to set a default time as a specific time or as the current time. But it's not just the default time on a newly created reminder that's the problem. It used to be that if all you did was change a date on a reminder the time would not change. Now if I want to push a reminder forward to a future date at the same time I have to change both the date and the time. It sounds like such a small thing, but it does get to be pretty annoying.
  2. By accident, I got this to work (i.e. without the balloon). start a bullet list type in the text for the item select the item with the mouse attach a link using a right click.
  3. As soon as I have figure out a good alternative I will leave EN. I depend on the web version. The old version continues to erode, and the new version is stuck on stupid. The worst part is I don't get the feeling that EN ownership gives a damn. I have gone from an EN fanatic to feeling like a victim.
  4. There needs to be the ability to select multiple notes in the web version (new version).
  5. I have had this problem all week long, both at the office and at home. For me, the problem is in the classic web version. I don't have the same problem when I use the beta, but then I'm stuck using the version that I find significantly lacking in functionality (at least compared to the classic version). It may finally be enough to drive me to One Note.
  6. Thanks gazumped for the explanation. If the move is more toward the desktop functionality, that would be great. Interestingly enough I really prefer the old web to the desktop for some reason. Maybe this is because I can't use the desktop version at work, so I just get used to navigating with the web layout. But I would be pleased to see the direction go more to the desktop experience and as far far away from the beast as possible. I really liked the article, I always felt there had to be some driving force behind all this madness. It's kind of scary to see how far "group think" can take us without an ounce of evidence to back it up. You would think that with the millions of dollars at stake in user acceptance and internet commerce, someone would actually be testing these concepts.
  7. No, I'm sure they have to move forward for the common good for reasons that my small brain can't begin to understand. What I really want this time is that they really listen to the users about current functionality that should be retained, and not just assume that anyone with a brain must be a minimalist. There is nothing in that document that tells me they realize unresponsiveness to users was part of why the beast version failed, so I have to wonder if they see that as a problem. Maybe a little sarcasm will help wake them up.
  8. Here's the interpretation: Our first attempt was an utter failure. Our next attempt will be good for attracting new developers to EN, which of course, is our real reason for existence. No, we don't need the advice of hundreds of thousands of our loyal users. We are writing this epistle of blah blah blah to explain why we just can't leave well enough alone. We are using the Blah Blah language so that our mortal users won't dare admit to their ignorance by daring to make suggestions that only waste our valuable time in providing nonresponsive responses. Sincerely, Your EN Team. Please, please EN, prove me wrong.
  9. Here's the deal.  If you get rid of the old version of the web interface I will jump to another product.  I will never upgrade to premium unless I see some assurances that the old version will not be abandoned.  As soon as I see such assurances I will upgrade to premium.  It's just that simple.

    I don't care about how much work you are doing under the hood, I don't care about how pretty the new version is,  At its core, it's just awful.  Since EN appears to be preventing new accounts to access the old version I'm guessing it's master plan is to one day say, "O look the majority of our users are using the new version, it must be a success, time to close down the old version."  If that's really the plan all I can say is, God bless your little hearts.

  10. @Spenceragain You are absolutely right about it being an industry wide problem. I'm seeing far too often to one degree or another. The question I have is simple, would you rather watch the super bowl on your smartphone, or a 48" TV? Size does matter. Mobile devices are great and I would hate to have to deal with the same layout on my mobile that I have on my desktop, but the converse is also true. The point is that I don't like my mobile device because of the screen layout, I like it because it's mobile. The small limited screen layout is something I put up with because it's better on a mobile device. There is a reason that I don't use my mobile device at work where I have the luxury of dual 21" monitors. This is the same sort of reason why Windows 8 was an utter failure. How someone doesn't understand this is beyond me. As long as they don't abandon the old version I'll probably stay with Evernote, but I'm not adverse to looking at alternatives. When you are selling a service you never want to give your customers a reason to look elsewhere.
  11. Where do these people come from? It's foolishness to take a layout that is optimized for a 15-inch desktop screen, and replace it with a layout optimized for a 3-inch smartphone screen. What really bugs me is that even though my profile is set to use the "old" version, the "new" version pops up on occasion. Also, I'm constantly reminded that the "new" version is wonderful and I should use it now. Well, I have tried it several times and I don't like it. And yes, I do use Evernote on my smartphone and I think the layout there is just peachy fine....for a smartphone. Now some grown-up person at Evernote needs to take control of the situation and tell the 3-inch people to leave the 15-inch layout alone, and quit bugging us about how wonderful it is to give up the functionality that a 15-inch layout provides.
  12. I find the new format simply awful. I'm not a big fan of form over function. If this is the way you are going you can count me out. I NEED the so called cultered views to navigate.
  13. I am very new to Evernote. I tried it out for a while and then gave it a rest. Recently I decided to take another run at it. I had forgotten a lot about how it works, and somehow the beta version got turned on. I spent several days of frustration trying to navigate and change things to be more to my liking. I was trying to change my default notebook and couldn't figure out what to do no matter what I clicked, tapped, or swiped. Finally, I saw an option to return to the original version. May I say on behalf of left-brained people everywhere, please never make the beta version the only version. I was so frustrated I almost trash-canned the app. I know the minimalist approach is all the rage these days, but some of us need still need a little structure to keep our sanity.
