  1. For iPad Evernote should just integrate Apple’s PencilKit— vastly superior writing experience and virtually no coding....
  2. Sorry you are having so may problems, you have plenty of company. But No, don't blame yourself. There were many Beta testers-- I was one. I can assure you that many of the issues you see, and dozens of others were brought to the developers' attention and were not addressed before this horrible thing was released. I too used the dividing line, there is a shortcut-- just type three dashes and hit enter, and voilá, you get the solid line. In addition, on the desktop version you can type a "#" or "##" or "###" and get large, medium and small headings. It would be great if at "launch" E
  3. I annotated a pdf with a couple of highlights in Evernote 10 with Big Sur. It caused the entire pdf to disappear from my note with no recovery. I have the old Mac version on my desktop alongside the new version- the pdf is gone there too. I was testing to see if things were improving. Within 2 minutes I had already lost data. My advice: don't even test out Evernote 10 with your live database. After working with Evernote for over a decade, I am migrating to Apple Notes, I cannot afford to wobble through this nightmare as Evernote figures out how to operate their own platform--I am t
  4. DanielKT, I agree with your point about designing software to exploit the unique capabilities of the device and software architecture. iOS, especially with the addition of keyboard support to the iPad, a now occupies a space very close to "Desktop Class" and for some functions, like annotation, iOS actually exceeds the capabilities of the desktop platform. Example: In Apple Notes I can format docs, create tables, view pdfs in-line inside a note, annotate pdfs, and photos with the Apple Pencil, and draw and diagram effectively, I can move items up and down in an outline or in a list. (On
  5. Hi Peter2040. I am a Notion user, but it is not a real replacement for Evernote. It isn't great at pulling information from the real world and transmitting it back to the real world. It is excellent at outlining, storing and manipulating content created inside the app. If you are all-Apple, I have found the new Apple Notes to be very good. If not, MS OneNote is the closest option. Neither is as good as what Evernote "should be", but both are superior to what Evernote have released here. Ugh.
  6. Apple Notes is somewhat similar, but their capabilities are improving steadily. OneNote does this pretty well. Evernote???? This is a huge step backward.
  7. I was happy to discover this. Unfortunately however, although the whole purpose of these updates is supposedly to homogenize the experience across platforms, Markdown shortcuts like # and ## don’t work in iOS. Why????? Again it seems like homogenizing is more about easing developers lives regardless of the impact on users.
  8. According to these instructions, resizing images is only available on Mac. If, like me, you used to use your iPad for annotation, this is now virtually impossible. Images sometimes appear impossibly small and the tools are impossibly large, annotating is like a horse trying perform microsurgery. Also, the tools remain clunky and unintuitive. Evernote still have a long way to go to make this anywhere close to usable. 🙁
  9. Grinstead: Excellent points. That’s the reason I ended up in Apple Notes. I’m missing some Evernote features, but it is a consistent, stable platform not amid huge changes.
  10. A few days , after 10 years of subscriber ship, I finally gave up and moved my database to Apple Notes (an option for me because I have only Apple devices) What did I learn? 1. It was amazingly easy. I exported my Evernote notebooks, one notebook at a time to ENEX files on my iMac desktop. I then clicked import in Apple Notes and they uploaded almost instantly. I then moved the notes to appropriately named folders in Notes and ... done. Several thousand notes to me a half hour. It then took another 30 minutes for everything to upload to iCloud so that they are accessible on all my devic
  11. Good insight. The key is meeting 100% of your target customer’s need. I don’t know who Evernote is for right now. You want to do research—- you cannot efficiently annotate any more, certainly not as well as other apps. You want to write a book— there aren’t decent export options from the editor—look elsewhere. You want a filing cabinet— the old Evernote did that better and faster than the new one. You lost scanner support. OneNote, Apple Notes are free and now have strong OCR, and internal scanning functions You want to take electronic notes— OneNote is more flexibl
  12. I have tried both GoodNotes and Notability. In terms of overall usability and the quality of handwriting, I would give the nod to Notability, which I still use often for making sketches, handwritten notes and preliminary engineering drawings for my work. I also found that the Notability’s workflow is more, shall I say, Evernote-like: New notes go into an Inbox where they can later be processed into folders. Why not convert completely to Notability? 1. The Mac desktop app is really not up to snuff. 2. There is no linking function either between notes or to connect notes to
  13. I agree completely. I had no desire to leave Evernote, and Apple requires a few weird workarounds but I found myself having few viable choices: --Evernote for iOS is broken and there seems to be no focus on fixing it. --Communication from Evernote is nil. --OneNote, although it has great features, is very inconsistent between platforms, doesn't work well on iPhone and search is good but not great. Plus, my brief experiment moving some notes from Evernote was an abject disaster. --Bear has a great editor and organization system, but really doesn't have the feature set fo
