  1. Already did, and I've run out of patience frankly. EN tech support has always been pretty useless when I've tried interacting. I'm done for now.
  2. You misunderstood. *The* issue is the android version. The others work OK for me as well. The Android version was re-written, and imo it is a mess.
  3. Are you using it in a saved search shortcut? See the two attached screenshots. One is V10 on Android, the other is in Windows. The Windows use of the shortcut finds 4 notes as it should. The Android use of the same shortcut finds 7000+ notes. It appears the "any: -tag:*" doesn't get interpreted and gets cut out of the filters. But the search results also contain other notebooks which makes no sense at all.
  4. This: notebook:"Action Pending" any: tag:1-Now -tag:* It fails on the -tag:* when part of a shortcut This search is supposed to find all notes in the Action Pending notebook with either the "1-Now" tag or no tags at all. Instead it pulls in a random mess. The search in v8 finds the handful of notes it should, v10 finds thousands. I've had several rounds with tech support on this and they say they have no current plans to fix it.
  5. I found that saved search shortcuts from v8 were carried forward to v10 in Android, but parts of the search syntax no longer work, so the shortcuts don't actually work. V10 is a mess. Downgraded back to v8 for now.
  6. I am also attempting a conversion back to OneNote. I used this in the early 2000s but moved to Evernote because of its great features back then. It appears OneNote may have caught up, and these buggy Evernote releases and poor support are becoming problematic. I'll post here how it goes.
  7. After some more interaction with support, it appears that saved searches are broken with this syntax. The syntax works if you type it in manually in the search bar. The saved search shortcut is still in the menu, and is broken, but now they consider this a "future feature" that I can advocate for in the feedback. What?! You broke basic functionality that I've used for years, and now it's a "future enhancement"? Anyone know how to revert back to the previous version?
  8. In Windows currently, and in Android versions prior to 10.5, the following saved search would find all notes in "My Notebook" that either had the tag "Now" or no tags at all. If a note had a tag "Later", for example, and no tag "Now", it wouldn't appear: notebook:"My Notebook" any: tag:Now -tag:* In Android 10.5, this no longer works. It is pulling in notes from other notebooks, different tags, etc. In Windows it finds the correct handful of notes. In Android it finds thousands. I've gone around and around with support on this, but they are not understanding the issue. Every interaction with them is like starting from scratch. Coming here to see if the good folks here can help. Thanks.
  9. Great. So apparently whenever I add a new note, for it to show up I need to reinstall. Great app.
  10. 2 questions: 1) How do I rebuild the search index on Android? That might fix #2 2) Search consistently fails to find notes or exclude changed notes that no longer meet a saved search criteria. Do I need to wait a period of time before new/changed notes end up on searches correctly?
  11. Thanks, yes I just checked and yes there is a new version. I will install and try it out. I also have seen the problem where my shortcuts don't bring up any matches unless I try 5+ times. I think all these problems have a root cause around all the threading and subprocesses they are using. There are probably race conditions or other issues in the inter-process communication that is causing all this. I think they chose a much too complicated programming model for their Windows desktop version, unfortunately.
  12. This is still an issue. On the Windows client, bring up a new note. You must wait 5+ seconds, and click multiple times in the note area before you start typing, just to make SURE you're actually typing where you think you are. Not good.
  13. Thanks. Yes the camera app works fine, but it puts the photos in my gallery also which I don't want. Evernote seems to not use the flash after the first photo, even if the flash is turned on.
  14. In the multi-shot mode (which I want to use to avoid photos taking up gallery space), if I have the flash setting icon to "always", the flash only works for the first photo. Subsequent photos are underexposed and blurry. Anyone else see this? Galaxy S7.
