  1. Many app owners preserve a legacy version of their application as a separate app in the android store (for example, Feedly). It's unclear to me why Evernote didn't do that. I still can't use the updated version (10) of the app due to very long startup times. It makes it's unusable for taking quick notes. I have more than 20000 notes in my account and the newest version starts longer than in 5 seconds on a Galaxy Note 9. I often may forget what I wanted to write when it starts. So I've installed version 8.13.3 from apkmirror. Likely, it's still working and it's much more responsive.
  2. Though Evernote doesn't support a "true" boolean search, I agree that you can find almost any note. From my experience, a "true" boolean search may be required for some advanced GTD/planning/dynamic setups and queries. BUT if you need such a complex setup, then Evernote is not your best choice. Try notion databases. They are free and can do very complex filtering, as well as showing different search results in predefined views. I gave up using Evernote as a planning tool. I use it as cross-platform cloud storage and journaling/note-taking platform with awesome search capabilities. But no more than that.
  3. Also, there is the VS Code roadmap. It's not as clear as the Nimbus's one, but it's additionally using Github's issues. And the VS Code also uses the same tech as the new Evernote app - electron engine. Please, learn from them. No offence to the Evernote team, but hey, the app costs 70$ per year, and we are sitting with version 6.25 for almost a year on Windows. If it would cost 10$ per year, or if it were only a one-time payment of 25$, then I would say, "well, at least it's cheap". But it is not. We deserve at least a clear roadmap. With that said, I won't renew my premium subscription until something changes.
  4. I wrote a small application (and using it for more than 2 years) that replaces the default browser, parses each link and if it matches Evernote, automatically converts it to evernote://... and opens it in the desktop version of Evernote seamlessly, else it opens the URL in the browser. If a lot of people are interested I could share it.
  5. It may be, or it may not. The "Moleskine Notes" app for android is still getting minor updates from time to time. I still prefer the "special pen & paper" solution to a digital one in some cases. I do brainstorming sessions, and quick drawings on the YOGA laptop using a pen. Or on Galaxy Note 9. But when I have to tackle a problem that seems unsolvable then I take the Moleskine Notebook and the Ellipse Smart Pen. Though, It seems like syncing Moleskine Notebooks and Evernote integration is implemented very poorly. I can't make changes to synced notes in Evernote because after running sync again in the Moleskine App it generates a "note conflict".
  6. After clipping some websites, notes still can contain "hidden" CSS inside. This may negatively affect the clipped note. Not very often but it may happen. Some real cases from the top of my head: Ad banners can be presented (as I mention previously) - on some websites they are "sticky", meaning when you scroll a page down, they stick to the viewport. This behavior can still be presented in the clipped note plus became much worse. Sometimes a banner is drawn on top of the text, so you can read it. When you scroll, the text still not visible because the banner is always XX% from the top/bottom of the Evernote window (windows\android). Greenish/blacking/etc backgrounds sometimes make text unreadable. I remember a website having a black background and a white text. After clipping the text color changed to black or almost completely black (no idea why). And it wasn't visible at all. Title images completely cover text. And after using the "simplify" feature the text is going away. You are right, the "needed" part is subjective. But I saw similar threads regarding the topic. And some people even made scripts to change the source. But those scripts are outdated and not usable anymore. From a developer's point of view, it's pretty easy to modify a source. But it may not be easy from the UX/UI point of view. And I believe, that is why this feature still does not exist in Evernote. I haven't used export/import too, but I saw people recommend it on this forum as a way to modify the source code of a note.
  7. I believe evernote should not support HTML editing itself, but it should give a way to a user to edit (at least copy and replace) a "source code" of a note. No complex editors are required, just show the source code as a text, so I can modify it and then paste. Probably, it may make sense to move it to an "advanced" or "danger" editing zone. It's needed because when you export/import a note it's ID and a link change. Imaging 100 links to one note and you have to remove an "active" css that makes a banner stick on top of a text. Importing\exporting it as ENML will take a hell of a work for such a simple task.
  8. Even if the GUID is generated at the server it would still be possible to add a workaround for "clients" (by the development team) - they just can "create" a bunch of "hidden" empty notes that are not visible to a user, sync them with the server and pop them while a user is offline (in case it's not possible to shift generating GUIDs from the server to clients). Another workaround just came to me - we can create a bunch of "mock" notes with a specific tag. E.g. "empty_notes" and then use them as needed. Not sure whether it's "fine" to do it manually for the best note-taking app.
  9. When Evernote is in "offline" mode (both desktop and Android, I have no iOS device to check) then it's not possible to copy a link of a note that has created "offline". Are there any workarounds? Are there are any plans to improve this feature? Context: Sometimes I used to travel by train or by airplane, where an internet connection isn't stable. Also, I often use "Copy Link" feature in order to create links between notes. But this feature isn't working when you are offline. You just see "Synchronizing note..." popup window. Often, it's even hard to cancel this operation - it hangs often (especially on windows) after clicking on the "cancel" button.
  10. Hi, I've just quickly updated the script to make it work with the latest version of evernote for web. It's not perfect: in order to "save changes" you have to change anything inside the note (e.g. enter an empty space, modify text, etc) after editing the html. You can download it here: https://gist.github.com/psxvoid/d542ff07f312f6262a5429c329c81386 You can install it by various ways: by replacing the content of an old script in tamper monkey with a new one, than click "ctrl+s" by adding a new script in tampermonkey (by pressing "+"), then replace all content, click "ctrl+s"
  11. This lag is still exists in the latest version of the evernote. Haven't tried the steps from the post above but guys - it should not be laggy out of the box. I would say that it's a critical bug for the essential feature - to type without interruptions. P.S.: I have more than 11000 notes, the performance is great but this bug is super annoying. It's a shame that it still not fixed.
  12. Another good piece of work I've often lack: remove "votes" from "simplified" article clippings for StackOverflow. In my opinion it's ruining the readability :
  13. Actually, I have found a working solution thankfully to the attached topic. Yep, it is partially possible. The main idea is to make tags "to_do_1", "to_do_2", etc. a direct children of the tag "to_do". Then I can do the following search: tag:university tag:to_do* Note: asterisk includes all children tags into the query.
  14. Currently I am trying to find a notes which contain a specific tag along with multiple tags. For example, I want to find all my to do's for the University: tag:university any: tag:to_do_1 tag: to_do_2 tag:to_do_3 But it doesn't work. Is it possible to combine tag and any in terms of AND logical operator?
  15. It is very frustrating. In The Russian language, we have two different letters: "е" and "ё". They are completely different. For now, all words with "ё" being marked as "incorrect" by the Evernote grammar check engine. To avoid it I need to add words with "ё" manually to the user dictionary. But there a lot of them and each word can have different endings, suffixes, etc! It is wrong and annoying. Can Evernote Team add a support of those words to Evernote Russian language?
  16. I often encountered the same issue. For example, I like to record lectures and courses with my phone. Some of them could be even more than 400MB if course takes about 8 hours. I would like to keep some course recordings inside Evernote in order to listen it offline and add additional text notes. Google Drive support is interesting but not very useful for now. I still don't know the convenient way of adding a google drive link to a note to a large audio file and then have the ability to listen to it.
