  1. Doesn't work for me either - same issues - and have tried all the [old] proposed workarounds
  2. Same problem. There seem to be two (or more?) live threads on this...maybe the mods could consolidate? I have now read through several threads on this topic. I am having the same issue on Macbook, Sierra, Safari Version 11.0 (12604.1.38.1.7), and Webclipper 6.12.4 (also tried 6.11 from Evernote site) I have tried all the proposed solutions: - Enabling all cookies (really? this is a thing? in 2017?) - Uninstalling, Clearing history, forcing quit, rebooting, re-installing - Uninstalling, clearing Safari history, forcing quite, going into Library/Safari/Localfiles and clearing it all out, re-installing - Logging into Evernote web version - Shouting very loudly at the screen Nothing has fixed the unable to log in to Evernote on Safari problem (the "dot" is still on the extension icon, and I get the open tab, login, logout cycle when I try to use it) The only solution appears to be either (a) Use a different product, (b) Use Chrome This is ridiculous. I have logged this with Evernote support...and will post if a solution comes back

This is ridiculous.
  4. I don't find Slack to be a good example of good contrast. I use it daily, and it suffers the same flaws as EN 5 - sure, the sidebar is dark with light text on it... but it's dark purple with light purple text. That is the textbook definition of low-contrast. Yeah, the sidebar stands out from the content, but it suffers poor legibility due to the low contrast text. Also, the rest of the interface is flat white. There's zero background contrast between the chat content and the little sidebar you can pull out. To me, this is worse than Evernote 6's supposed issues. I get that Evernote is bright now. But so is Google. So is this forum. So is a LOT of the internet. I guess I just don't see the difference. At least the sidebar text is crisply legible now, as opposed to light grey text on a dark grey background. Due to the reduction of textures and color in EN 6, your eyes can focus more on the content of the notes - especially the titles. Card view is so much better I could cry. EN 6 is very, very much an improvement on text legibility. I find it incredibly easier to use and navigate. I would guess from your comments that you probably have ( a ) good vision and ( b ) young eyes...having neither of those the lack of contrast is painful. In any event, rather than spend all this time on making Evernote look like an extension of Yosemite, perhaps the team could have more usefully developed options that allowed users to tweak the colour schemes.
  5. The complaints are about the Mac Interface. I use both Mac and Windows and have no problems with the EN Windows, nor have I heard of any dissatisfaction from anyone else. There was a HUGE uproar when Windows EN 5 came out about its lack of contrast, too. And Mac EN 5's design was hated when it came out too. If you search the forums you should be able to pull it all up easily. I had this multi-paragraph post written in response, but deleted it. Essentially it boiled down to this: Give the app a shot. Instead of opening it once, hating the design, and downgrading - use the app for a week or two. Give it a fair trial like anything else in life. Take notes on what you like/dislike. If at the end of your trial period you still dislike it, at least you'll be clearer on why, as opposed to a knee-jerk reaction (which we all have and is perfectly human and okay - just not very enlightening).If you still dislike it, post constructive feedback on why. What specific aspects don't you like? Is there a reason besides asthetics? "This app is so ugly!" is not helpful feedback. "The developers are idiots!" is not helpful feedback. "I find the note list hard to read because the alternating grey background behind notes is a bit pale on monitors calibrated for photography" is helpful feedback. I actually think the app looks "nice". That isn't the point. The point is that tired and old eyes cannot deal with the low contrast. It is just TOO BLOODY DIFFICULT TO READ, A BIT LIKE LOOKING AT CAPS ALL DAY. It's very difficult to read the different sections / columns in the app. Under different light conditions the entire background fades into one. Have a look at Slack to work out how to present different classes/levels of information in one window. EN windows now look like a single messy document.
  6. Am also a long time Premium user. Having unwittingly updated to version 6, all I can assume is that Evernote doesn't do proper user testing (or alternatively they don't test any users over 30!). Clean interfaces are great, but the lack of contrast makes EN almost unusable. Please guys - this is a product, not an art work. Get rid of the artists and hire some proper UX/UI people who do adequate testing and listen to users. If this doesn't change I'll have to look at alternatives.
