  1. Hi, 

    A comment on the setup of the notebooks in the top left in the web client vs the Mac version. 

    On Mac, clicking on the notebook name on the top left of a note opens the menu to select a notebook/move the note to another notebook while in the web version it has a navigation function, which is far less useful and is also a breakdown in consistency across platforms. It's a far more common use case to want to move a note from one notebook to another, especially when processing your notes, than it is to simply navigate back to a notebook.

    @James Systems Matter Thank you for sharing your feedback!

    The function you're describing is related to the Web Client, and not necessarily the editor experience.

    In this case, I'm going to move this thread to a more appropriate location but feel free reach out to me directly if you have any other questions!

    OK thanks, Shane. Just want to reiterate that this is a crucial function/use case in terms of the web version even being usable.

  3. I'm not a fan of the option to directly remove a note from Shortcuts in the sidebar by clicking the 'x'. It's far too easy to accidentally click it and remove a note unintentionally. I would suggest this option only be kept in the note options in the top right of a note. 

  4. There isn't a way to search through notebooks when moving a note to a new notebook. When you have 100+ notebooks it's terrible UI to have to scroll through them all to find the notebook you want to move your note to.

    The same problem applies to tags, of which I have upward of 500.

    I'm not sure how these have fallen through the cracks as they're crucial features of the mobile and desktop apps.

  5. I'm starting to find the Google Drive integration more and more handy over time as a way to minimise local storage on my Mac. Where before I would save PDFs and photos directly in Evernote, I'm now saving things that don't require OCR in Drive. One irritating restriction is the fact that you can only attach one file from Drive at a time so it's really cumbersome to attach multiple files. 

    Is there a specific reason why it isn't possible to select multiple files to attach from Drive? 

  6. Freezes EVERY time on iPhone 6 and takes min 5 seconds to get going every single time. The iPhone 6 is still one of the most advanced handsets on the market and if Evernote is performing this poorly on a 6, I shudder to think what it's like on older devices. Evernote, this is a MAJOR problem and needs to be resolved. I'm a heavy user but I'm having to resort to storing things in Apple Notes when I need quick functionality. What's the point of the app if I can't quickly record thoughts when I have them?

  7. I'm finding that Evernote's inbuilt camera/doc scanner is poor when compared with Scannable, which is far better at detecting the borders of a document. As you created both products why don't you simply integrate Scannable's functionality into the Evernote app as you've done with Skitch?

    So now I can only sync TWO DEVICES WITH A FREE ACCOUNT???  Last straw for me. 

    You already stopped my ability to email notes......now limiting my device access.......or pay $7.99/mo??????

    You'll obviously keep cancelling functions so now I'm done period, even free.

    Anyone else??

    Moaning and whining about being deprived of all the things you were getting for free. It's quite pathetic to listen to all the bleating.

    It's a fair assumption that all of you are either employed or business owners. How much of your work do you do for free? How many of your businesses exist simply to keep an unappreciative public satisfied while not generating any income?

    Hang on while I count them on no fingers...

    Businesses change, business models evolve and freeloaders move on. 

    Good luck with OneNote - and thank you @gazumped for keeping calm amidst the chaos.
