About Squeaky Geeky

  1. First time post in Evernote forums, been using it since it came out. +1 on he highlight colors. Never needed it until today, most times I copy and paste from word but I have a need to modify what I am pasting this time. Assumed Evernote had this basic capability.
  2. I am also a first time poster and user due to this colorization issue. I hear what you are saying regarding threats and for some that may be what they are. Your right switching over to another application is not easy and I love Evernote as well. I have used it since it was released and it's one of my favorite programs. I sing it's praises all the time. That being said, when I upgraded and eventually discovered I would have to live with how it currently looks I already knew I would not be using it in it's upgraded incarnation. It was not even a conscious decision to make, I knew I needed to find an alternative. Luckily I was able to uninstall it and downgrade to a previous version. While I was doing this downgrade I was dreading having to move over to Onenote. I could swing putting off what I needed to do for the day so I could in theory be up and running on the platform hopefully in the same day. I don't want to use Onenote but it would be the first option for me to evaluate. I would not be quitting Evernote in protest, I simply knew I was just not going to use or be productive with this new version. It was that cut and dry for me. I am sure that is not the case with others but I knew I would not be using Evernote by the next day. Good luck everyone with your downgrade or living with the change. Hopefully the day will not come where I am forced to upgrade to a version I will not use. I started using OneNote above Evernote for its superior subfolder division... OneNote is a great app.. I like it... However I realised that OneNote is not an Evernote Replacement... Evernote 'could' maybe replace OneNote... But not the other way round... Anyways it really depends what you are using Evernote for to answer that question... The truth however is I find use for both programs... I really cant consider that one can completely replace or do the others Job... Again depends on your personal needs... But you wont find a straight up replacement for Evernote in One program... Maybe if you use several you may achieve this... But there is no replacement for Evernote really... Its got some very functional features that you will surely miss.. I think people are throwing a bit of a hissy fit at the moment... The fact remains that Evernote can improve its new look contrast and visibility... However we forget that everyone who uses a computer no matter what program, stare at black/white/grey screens all day... Complaining is good Only way things get better... But some of the responses here, I feel are making idle threats.. They are too dependant on the functionality to throw it out completely because of the new look. I have not used Onenote for more than a cursory review when it first came out. The only feature I really use is organizing data in notebooks that sync across all devices and platforms. Thats the only mission critical need I have for it. As it has grown and included more features I have not really played with them except for adding tags. Perhaps I should but I don't think it does anything more that I am interested in. Will take a look when I get a chance. Thanks for the response since now I am wondering how Onenote does folder subdivision. Sometimes notes are hard to find even using the tags. Thanks for the response. Take care.

  4. Thanks for the suggestion and reference. I have added this to my list of references in my original post. Would you mind sharing what specific things you found helpful in the MacRumors guide, that was not included in my instructions? Thanks. I am not sure if I saw your instructions but I did review a bunch of links and suggestions from the thread you posted. It is probably where I got the link I posted. Evernote was fairly simple to remove. If you just remove the app to trash and kill your web browsers because of the plugin you will still not be able to remove evernote to the point where you can reinstall without getting the older EN database error. If you move the program to trash, kill the evernote helper process with activity monitor you can then do a search on your hardrive following the suggestions from that link. You search for evernote system files and remove those as well. Once that is all done you can install a previous version and will not get the error. Basic stuff for techies but not something the average user may be aware of much less easily do without doing a bit of research. Hope this helps.
  5. I was able to downgrade today. You have to remove system files Evernote uses as well. Here is a link that may help: http://guides.macrumors.com/Uninstalling_Applications_in_Mac_OS_X
  6. FYI from a long time Evernote user that recommends the product to all my clients, the new monochrome white interface is personally unusable to me. I won't go into details as this is very much personal preference and many have posted on the forums why they hate the new color scheme. Please change the colors back to it's unbroken version or give us the ability to change the color scheme ourselves. Luckily There are posts on how to downgrade to a previous version which I have just done.
  7. I am glad I am not the only one with this problem. I upgraded recently and the new color scheme is basically unusable for me. I looked for the settings to change it and saw nothing so of course I am thinking this can't possibly be normal so I came here and found this post. Everyone here has already articulated how bad this color scheme is and I will be following your diligent notes and suggestions to downgrade. I have been using Evernote since it came out and have praised it's execution long before other apps have tried to follow in it's footsteps. This color scheme is counter productive and a deal breaker for me so without a way to downgrade there is no way I would continue to use this software. I would have to go elsewhere. I am sure this sounds extreme to some, but it would be an unfortunate reality for me.
