  1. OK it seems there are just too many open and unresolved items for Evernote, either the team is overworked or ambivalent. Either way Microsoft OneNote seems to be what I need (sure this group doesn't care). I have cancelled my Evernote which is a great product unfortunately has too many limitations that I am not willing to overcome, OneNote as a turns out has way more features (as of 2016 version) and I can choose where to store by file (online or offline) and don't have to deal with line space, PDF problems or beta issues with a polished product. Argue or not I am a customer (and appears evernote has no quantification for this) and I should get what I want, that's EXACTLY why I am switching. Not endorsing OneNote merely signaling my discontent with the current Evernote status.. maybe in a year or 10 I might entertain another switch but I am getting off this Titanic (over stating as it may be) if it's NOT working as planned it may as well be considered a FAILURE. Period. It should just work. I have used Evernote exclusively for almost 5 years and it's rather ridiculous it has to come to this. I guess I should finally realize why Microsoft is so big.. they do what NEEDS to be done not make excuses (jefito), you really need to stop trying to assuage products that are not living up their potential.. I like to give the underdog the benefit of the doubt, but that endeavor fails me more than I can remember. You think small you stay small . . . . .
  2. Break yes but remove previous feature NO they do NOT. They keep current features add new ones still manage to keep it working but still add new functionality.. BETA is nature to break stuff but not render it useless. Not supposed to work that way. Exactly but in this case there are WAY too many features missing to call this an 'oops'.. it seems like they started over to abandon the current version to start over, that's my point. I have been a beta tester for Microsoft for YEARS NEVER had a product including Windows that was missing or completely gone that customers were actively using, they didn't just release an OS and say 'oh yeah we need to add file system permissions or we forgot to include powershell'. The existing features are still there just maybe upgraded or perhaps moved or changed name but not gone. The BETA editor in Evernote I have to enable it, then I can edit stuff, if I restart or close Chrome it no longer works. Have to revert to 'classic' then re-enable editor. Too many bugs to be useful and LOTS of things were working before BETA. First of all BETA is the version just before release.. you have an ALPHA to start design phase. BETA is supposed to be version to test features to ensure final product is smooth, then you have a pre-release and a 'GOLD' release as a final test.. this is like a pre-Alpha, that's how it feels. You are kidding right? OF COURSE there are rules that why in development world there are STANDARDS, that's why companies use API and code.. if you have no rules well then you are doing it wrong. Not how ANY company (and I work for a development software company) works. I have developers looking at me because they heard me laughing and they are like ???!?! What does he mean 'no rules'.. that's crazy. You can't just make up stuff as you go, but then again that explains a lot for Evernote. If that's how 'cowboys' do it Redood City, well you are off the grid. Besides we are not talking about a new product we are talking about a new FEATURE in that product, I can simply hit edit.. and do what I need but BETA no so much..... you can't rewrite an edit function that worked before, that's bad development process. Sounds like you are moving forward no matter what I say, I guess if you speak for everyone at Evernote then I have no more use for you then. And it's NOT reality of the software business maybe you live in an alternate universe but in the REAL world not how it works. It also seems like you have NO QA, TEST or even a customer test of software .. you just have 'here it is take it or leave it' approach. (leave us a comment!) Awesome. You should keep your day job because if you move to another company they will laugh you out of the room if you mention how you did things 'back there'... Incredibly non-sense way of doing things. Evernote will lose customers.. then maybe management will go back and say 'where did we go wrong'... Well jefito said 'it was fast and loose'.. and that's when the roof caved in.. ah well maybe we should learn from that.
  3. Yeah automobiles go through the same thing, but they don't ditch working engines and transmissions just to make way for some unified experience. I am all for new features just don't BREAK existing methods. I have been in too many betas, projects and coding to know that you don't abandon the existing usefulness of a product just to start over with new features you can still incorporate what is already working. The idea for BETA is to ADD functionality not start over, then it wouldn't be evernote it would be a COMPLETELY new product. So if that's how it's going to be then maybe it's time to move on to OneNote or Google Keep, because my functionality is being interrupted and breaking my way of doing things. Yeah I know BETA is strictly voluntary but I don't expect to have to QA test and be a reminder that this used to work and that used to work either... It should just work.. and add functionality in the process. Apple, Microsoft, Google they all manage to keep the fires burning while they add new things to the empire, we don't burn down the old castle to make room for a new one, you build a new castle with basic foundation because you learn from the past.. you don't start completely over, that's just void of common sense. It's also how things will get missed.
  4. Yeah I am using Chrome, if I switch to Beta Editor it's fine to edit and make changes.. UNTIL I close Chrome then it doesn't work anymore. Next time I open Chrome beta editor doesn't work, double click, right click no option to 'edit' anymore. I have to change back to classic. Not only that but it converts ALL my content to HTML, it's one long listing in a note. I have to revert to Classic to make changes . Don't understand 'beta' editor it WAS working fine.. beta CHANGES should not change overall behavior.. just ADD some new features, why re-invent the wheel?!?!
  5. The RealPad ibuddie comes with kit kat 4.4.2, so unless you installed it yourself or bought it from a 3rd party that installed it, you put an OS that was not the original one that came with the device. So Samsung is correct, it's not supported.. even if you installed 6.0 Marshmallow does not imply the hardware can support the newer OS.. dangers of self installing
  6. Translation: I don't like change, so I am going to rant and rave about previously tested changes by other users.. in an attempt to disparage other people that like the new changes, even when the testing took months.... You can't find the camera.. so the camera symbol right below the note on the right isn't indicative of what it does?!??! You have some serious issues.. did you LOOK first?!?
  7. OK developers, I think you need to stop making this program so good. Just stop it. I spend enough time in Evernote I don't need more reasons to like it. NOW I can see icon preview images in my notes list.. what's up with that?!?!? A new feature I really like and now I suppose I have to add that to my list of things that makes Evernote great now? seriously.. stop.. I am getting things done quicker, gee thanks! more work for me. On a side note (see what I did there) how can we change these because some notes have the icon while others do not.. where do we customize these? Because now I have to learn something ELSE.. c'mon.. its only going to make me want to force the CFO to buy a site license
  8. Can we make notes read only? I accidentally hit information inside notes in trying to copy \ paste on my mobile. Then I end up saving it only to find out later that I moved something. Is there a way in Evernote to mark a notebook or note as read only so I don't accidentally change data?
  9. Problem is now fixed.. I uninstalled the app, rebooted the phone, reinstalled and subsequent re-sync everything works.. Not the best solution, as I still don't understand why there are counters.. ostensibly to show the discrepancy.. in the notes. Seems to me Evernote should be able to "self heal" with this info.. If the web can see notes counters, desktop can see notes counter, and the remote apps can see this info, the app should "reconcile" and if the fix is to remove content and download ALL content why can't the app do this without human intervention? Figure out which items are not visible and act accordingly... If this were a database replication this would be a poor design, because the Admins would have to delete a database, add new database and push a new copy.. that defeats the entire purpose of sync items that have changed since last update.. That is a broken replication... this is what causes people to find alternatives. It seems this app needs some additional attention in this regard.. I still like Evernote but I am less inclined to trust it.. as a "reliable" copy of my information...
  10. I find community much more helpful than techs.. I work with techs.. I know they are out of the loop on MANY things.. so I am using that as a last resort..
  11. Not much, tried those steps.. the iPhone app is the only one that is not working. I can figure out which notes are not in synch and modify them separately just hoping there was an easier way. What's odd is if i uninstall the app then reinstall it should be a fresh sync, but still some notes do not show up... yet it finds the rest. It's almost as if there is an archive bit set like for backup to ignore changes that have been copied, that's how this is acting. It's not until I make changes to notes that it picks up those notes.. but a problem only on the iPhone....
  12. I have Evernote on desktop, of course web, and iOS. I don't have an adroid phone so cannot test.. My desktop app works fine, and I can sync with the "cloud" and I can verify the web version, everything is fine. I have ZERO updates for the Month of October, I only noticed it because I have come to rely on evernote is my blood now.. so when data goes missing I panic.. I saw that my data was on my desktop app, so that's good.. at LEAST I know its safe, and I can see that the web version shows 376 items. My iPhone app (which I have removed, reinstalled, signed in, restarted iPhone, blah blah) will not synch items in October. If I "touch" the item on the web THEN it syncs, meaning I make a space or some minor change wait for it to show that is updated, then check my phone then it syncs.. but the total count is only 366 items a difference of ten. before this I had only 340 items showing up and I figured I could modify an item to make it synch with my phone, but how can we reconcile missing items? My desktop app also shows 376 items... How can I sync ALL? I though that a synch would do this.
  13. Wow! This is truly amazing. What a terrible design MS Windows has provided. It doesn't look like there are any really good fixes/workarounds. You may want to submit a bug report, and/or make a complaint on Twitter. Submit a BUG report via an EN Support Ticket. In the Support Form, select "Report a bug", and start the Ticket Title with "BUG: " to make it clear. Reporting a bug should be available to all users, including Free Account owners. Other Ticket types available to Free users are "Data Loss", "Crash", & "Sync Issue". Since Evernote now is providing official support to all users via Twitter, you might post your issue on Twitter @evernotehelps. It might also be good to include a link back to your post here. Um.. I think there is a disconnect here.. the *VIDEO* driver is EXCLUSIVELY responsible for the display.. This is *NOT* a Windows API or DPI issue.. it's 100% a DRIVER problem. *I* have 1920 x 1080 display but then I have Nvidia, and my display is absolutely PERFECT, no blurry, no problems whatsoever.. (not to mention what LED/LCD monitor you have, that could ALSO be part of the problem) Applications are just that.. APPLICATIONS they do NOT write to video directly, and since Windows uses API and you have the problem and I do not, that means this is not widespread.. You should refrain from spreading gossip and rumor about such things as people will get the wrong idea.. WINDOWS is not to blame.. I am guessing you have Intel 4000 or 5000 HD drivers and therefore graphics card (which is most laptops).. I also suggest you do better research BEFORE buying your next laptop. I suppose you bought it because of the price.. not good if you want quality.. and ASUS is the bottom of the barrel (don't care who you talk to) in laptops.. Sony, HP, Dell.. much better quality.. so you are result of simple and probably didn't know there are options for video.. lesson learned.. Get updated drivers from Intel for your graphics card (if available)..otherwise this is NOT an EVERNOTE or Windows problem... so you have to live with your choice of monitor, laptop and graphics card.
