  1. Hey Amanda, me and the I suspect hundreds of others feel your pain. We’ve to date received no response from Evernote. I tried to go over to OneNote but there was some critical function misssing (I don’t recall, but I shared my experiences earlier). I landed on Zoho notebooks and have beeen delighted since. The one gap is lack of native windows support but the web interface works great. Note, I am a native Apple client. Good luck, I hope this saves you some time. Btw. I cancelled my premium subscription. And instructed my team to do so as well
  2. Some time ago, I made the decision to abandon the Evernote product due to the grid change and lack of Evernote response. I moved to Onenote, and was quite happy until I realized that there is no offline access to the information if you are on a Mac. It appears this has been a significant user complaint for a couple of years. While the migration from Evernote to OneNote was pretty simple, the lack of offline access was a non starter. As such, I've now taken the recommendation from a few folks on this blog and installed Zoho. Thus far, I am very impressed. The migration was turn-key, the notebook view is fantastic and overall User Interface is very good. I've been on it for about 2 weeks. I'll post back here if there are any major concerns. I will tell you that unlike Evernote and Onenote, Zoho does not have a Windows client. Notes can be accessed via a browser on Windows clients and as such, I'm good for now.
  3. Migration Complete: After a fair amount of consideration, which factored feedback from speaking with Evernote Customer Support, comments posted in this forum, and the absence of feedback from Evernote in this forum, I completed the migration from Evernote (Premium) to MS OneNote. As a result of this, I have regained the Grid Notebook view as well as all other features I had in Evernote as well as several enhanced features. The OneNote Importer made the process turnkey. The migration did take approx. 45 minutes to convert my hundreds of notebooks. Also, I had to ensure that I was running the Mac version of Evernote from the Evernote site, versus the version from the Apple Store. (basically, I deleted the current app from my mac and downloaded and reinstalled the Mac version from Evernote's site). It is really sad when a trusted vendor makes such draconian product changes apparently not factoring in the potential customer impact. The lack of fair warning of this change, the remarkable lack of feedback on the Vendor's forum all signal (to me) a shift in Customer Insight focus. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I have been with Evernote for a very long time, but have just completed the migration away from the product and instructed my team to do so as well. I'll post any updates if I encountered issues with OneNote. I've been on the new product now for a few days as well as completed a "Basics" overview via Lynda.com. Here is a link to the migration tool and a table of OneNote versus Evernote Features: https://www.onenote.com/import-evernote-to-onenote / Ed
  4. My renewal notice just came up today. After several years, I WILL NOT be renewing and I have instructed my team to also conclude the subscription. It is not just the change (with out warning) but also the inability to roll back once the database is converted, the deafening lack of response from Evernote to this forum and the apparent lack of insight to the importance of understanding the brand user experience. Remember “new coke”!!! /Ed
  5. I'd suggest that this is NOT a feature request, but a regression error. There was a function in the product before the update, that function no longer works, ergo a regression bug.
  6. [Cross posted from Help Forum] I want to echo the sentiment in this post. I initially thought this was a new "default" setting not a removal of a feature. This is a very poor user experience move. Had you warned me that you would be removing what was a key branding element of this product, I would not have upgraded. As it stands, I will reconsider other options for me and my team. May I recommend that in the future, you perform beta testing / customer validation of such a major change before you launch.

  8. Chantal, I am very glad to hear that an update has been released. Evernote became unusable for me on MAC since the initial 6.12 update (unable to open previous notes, crashes...) With that said, it appears the default Notebook view has changed from a Grid of Notebook cards to a simple list. I have been unsuccessful in either finding how to switch back to the former view or any discussions on this topic in the forums. Can you provide any insight into this issue? Thanks. Note: I see that my profile has Windows 10, that is one of my platforms, but this note is related to MAC / Ed Update: I just found the thread on this issue and see that this view is be design and the Evernote team has removed the old view. I will continue this feedback on the appropriate thread.
  9. Since upgrading to Win/10, I have all but lost handwritting capability. I have a Samsung ProATV and nearly 90% of my input is via the pen. Handwritting converted to text. However, since moving to Wion/10, the input is very "Magic marker" like and is not recognized by EN. I completed nearly 40 minutes of Handwritting recognition with Win/10 thinking this would help to no avail.
