  1. Hey @DTLow, Looking at the requests for Android this is top-8 now, so I think there is some priority (at least product teams working on Android will see this when they open the list of request 😛). Thank you for sharing your take on how you organize your way of working, but each one of us have different ways of working and I am really not happy with mine. For me (and I would say this is not that exotic) Evernote is my reference note-taking application (in all the forms, as they also position themselves: text, images/docs/etc... not just "archive" and text note taking). I like it so much that I became a premium subscriber quite a few years back, so I could be extra equipped with this application I literally use every day! Evernote offers a handwriting feature (for a good while) and I don't think if ones takes a lot of handwritten notes a day, like I do, you are looking to use another app and export them as images to Evernote... I am not talking "drawing quality" sort of application (if that would be the case, I think it would be fair to not expect that from Evernote), but simply something where I can sketch my notes on a meeting, make a quick diagram in the middle of my note, etc. - without having to buy/go-to another application and then go through the pains of maintaining my parallel handwritten notes on another application (because these notes/sketches may change and then you need to export again...). I cannot do that on current handwriting feature of Evernote, it is just impossible to use... I don't think this is a lot to ask and you don't need to look a lot to see that the major competitor (OneNote) provides a great experience on this front (you can take handwritten notes, make diagrams, annotate docs, etc., with a good experience)... I am actually at the moment running an experiment where I use it to take all my handwritten notes... and to be fair it is working OK, I then export images to my Evernote notes... but it just feels wrong, when I am paying my annual subscription to Evernote to be my "archive of notes", when I could just use OneNote and get all these features in a single application. So, I am one of those that are by a thread sticking on Evernote... my 10+ years history with Evernote, how much I enjoy Evernote (in general), my "muscle memory" on Evernote and a few other things are keeping me here, but I sincerely don't know how much longer (as it does not cover my note taking needs). Cheers.
  2. This feature is getting more and more votes... I really hope Evernote team finds time to pick it up and make a step forward in the handwriting features of Evernote. Not sure how things are prioritized - as I don't see major innovations for a good while now (which is not the case on Evernote's main competitors, e.g.: OneNote), I mostly see very small things and "keep it running" (and all the "inspiration" emails coming... would prefer some actual developments). I would argue that it would be rather strategic for "The note-taking and organizing app" to bring the level of this "interface" to notes (being taking handwritten notes on all of our mobile devices, or annotating photos/documents with proper interface) to the next level. This does not need to be "the best", but make it reasonable and usable, the current option is just not usable (see the many points made above). @Evernote Team: are you looking into improvements on this particular part of the product? Thank you.
  3. Hey @GSteuerwald, This was indeed a problem on my case. I have created a ticket for support and send videos/logs to Evernote customer support... What was done is unclear as from support they had to create a ticket for the product development team, but for a few days now I don't experience the same behavior anymore... My recommendation is to uninstall Evernote on your device and then install it again, go for "beta version" (that's what I have). Hopefully you also stop getting this error (unless something was done on my specific account - I hope not :p, if you keep on having the problem I propose you write a ticket to customer support). Cheers, Eduardo
  4. @Comote I am not sure if it has improved, as I never used it before (on other tablets). However, as I mention it still is very poor when compared with other handwriting note apps - which is still a deal breaker to me (on adopting Evernote Handwriting feature for all handwritten notes...). Apart from that, I love the tablet and my workflow now is to use Samsung Notes and then export as image to Evernote... I really don't love this workflow, but it was the best I could come up with - to still use Evernote as my "single point of notes" and benefit from my Samsung S3 to take very nice handwritten notes... ...this is the reason I really would love a bit more of effort on this feature! Cheers!
  5. Thank you for your remarks @gazumped I fully agree, there should be no reason for a special treatment (BTW: did you try the exact steps I mentioned above? namely: create a new note; add some attachment; and click save (and don't click anything else, just wait - in my case I see some jumping between edit-mode and go back to list of notes and eventually stays on edit-mode...). However, I am seeing this on both of my Android devices, which leads me to think that there may be something wrong with some setting I have on my configuration/account... It also means that there is a high chance that there is some "use case" that is not fully supported by Evernote, as I am not doing anything crazy here, simply saving a note with some sort of attachment. I was looking at the logs (as I also do Software Development on a daily basis :p) but it is not easy to understand the different events... so I will indeed submit a "ticket" on the link you mention and send the logs and any other input to get some help. I will update the final results here. Cheers.
  6. [Updated with more details on the "situations" I get issues] Hello, I am having some a rather "undesirable behavior" on my Evernote (on Android devices), namely: I open a note (go to "edit mode)) Edit note Click on save it, which (should) bring it to a "non-editing-mode" (i.e.: I get the go to list sign "<-", or even sometimes go directly to the list of notes) GET (randomly) THE PROBLEM: I see some "flashing lines" on top of the app, looks like Evernote is saving the note... and then the note goes back to Edit mode, without any explicit action on my side to do that, i.e.: I do not touch anything on the note, which I expect to be required to go back to edit mode this behavior can go back and forth without me touching the "save" or "go back to list of notes" button... When does this happen? This seems to happen when I have notes with "Evernote handwritten entries" or add Attachment (e.g.: photo)... these are the two situations I tested (maybe there are a few other situations). When I have a note with only text, I am not seeing this behavior... actually I did a test where I updated the note by removing a photo and make it "pure text" note, which resulted on the note stopping to "misbehaving". This is causing some problems, e.g.: sometimes after I click save I move to another application, or just lock my Android device (while the note stays doing this "misbehavior" on background...). Then I use/change the same note on another device (I use three devices on a regular fashion), which means I end up having "conflicting notes" once I come back to my Android device... which is really annoying. The device where I see this happens the most is a Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 (Android 8.0.0, Latest Evernote version - 8.7.0), but it also happens on my Mobile phone, and I would assume this is probably happening on any Android mobile device... Is this a known issue? If so, is there anything happening to address it, or maybe already a solution/setting I can adjust to stop having this... @Evernote Support: if this is a Bug (and not some misconfiguration I have), shall I open a bug somewhere else with this info, or is this enough for you to take action? Thank you in advance! Cheers, Eduardo
  7. Another +1 from my side. I am an Evernote premium user for many years (it is literally my extended brain, I place there all my notes, daily planing, and anything I want to note down.... I love it). Recently I got a Samsung galaxy tab s3 with s-pen (Android), to further improve my note taking flow and especially to be able to also add handwritten notes directly on my notes. I think more and more people will do this. In my case I want to stop taking notes on paper then take photos and copy them there, etc (go paperless) and get all my notes where they should be - Evernote for me. I am really underwhelmed by the basic handwritten support of evernote... I actually like the simplistic interface. However, it is so basic and writing is not even very responsive for me, which makes the experience of taking notes directly on evernote practically impossible (for me). This really means not being able to use it properly, especially after trying Samsung notes or any other reasonwble note-taking app... So my current workflow is rather fragmented and error-prone: take my handwritten notes on samsung notes, export them as image to a special notebook on evernote (manually) then (when I remember) copy the image to a note where I have some pre-meeting/event notes and points of discussion already.... I tend to forget some of these steps, and even worse, sometimes I revisit handwriten notes and make changes (recapping things, etc) and then need to again go throw all the steps and replace the image... It is not nice... but I really tried to use evernote handwritten notes but they are just too far from the others that I have to go through this painful set of steps... I know there is Penultimate for ios (which is also a product by evernote), but I think the idea of having this feature within the product will make many people happier (instead of using another app, sync the note to evernote as an image...). I think the original message pretty much covers my request for features extensions, I leave bellow some extra remarks (some redundant, sorry): Improve responsiveness (maybe it is just me and one can get use to it, but there is a real delay, which makes it difficult to write...) Pressure sensitive Thin pen, it is really think now (even the thinnest one...) Maybe multiple pen types (I don't care so much, but it is nice to have two or three types) If I can give any other feedback please let me know... As mentioned above, this is becoming a rather popular way of taking notes and it is really a pitty to have these limitations (basic support) on our beloved Evernote. Cheers.
