  1. This does not sound good either! And I think the bolded section merits a response from an Evernote staff member. Will Evernote ever be fast again?
  2. Given that @CalS said that V10 can't handle links and you guys are saying V10 has many more bottlenecks for speed, I think I'll wait a little longer to try V10.
  3. V10 still lacks functioning links?!?! 🤦‍♂️ That is mind blowing. I'll pass on trying out V10 for now. In a few months, I'll check this thread again.
  4. To hear that it's really slow for you and hasn't really sped up much over the past year... that is not encouraging. As for trying out V10, is it actually that easy to do and undo? What about the risks of sync issues, or account/device limit issues, etc?
  5. Thanks for your response. My computer is about 5 years old, laptop about 3 years old. Both were far from top-of-the-line when purchased as I only use computers for simple things. Do you think they would have memory and lag issues?
  6. Thank you for your response. Your description is quite disappointing. Is there any way to know if Evernote will ever be fast again? How much have speed and resource/performance issues changed since V10's release?
  7. It has been about 4 months since I last asked: Does Evernote V10 just work yet? I am hesitant to try because I worry about V10 making my computer lag like crazy, then not being able to go back to Legacy due to limits in accounts and devices, sync screwups, etc.
  8. Do you know this to be literally true? i.e. That there wasn't a single character from the old code base brought to the new code base? Has Evernote said this? It may very well be true - I don't know. Unfortunately, I can only think of two plausible explanations for these cursor bugs. Evernote truly does have two entirely separate code bases, but, just by astounding coincidence, they programmed infuriating cursor jumping bugs into both of them. It is just a further coincidence that the symptoms of those bugs - on two entirely separate code bases - are pretty much indistinguishable. This seems to be what you're saying, @PinkElephant. The company programmed infuriating cursor jumping bugs into the original code 7+ years ago. Years later, those bugs live on in Legacy... AND Evernote chose to copy-paste some/all of those bugs into the new code base. Both explanations are quite cynical, but I'm no coder. This is all I can think of as a layperson. Is there a more optimistic explanation out there?
  9. Weird cursor jumping has been a known issue at Evernote since early 2014. Source: Evernote - The Bug Ridden Elephant. You could likely search these forums and find weird cursor jumping (and other cursor bugs) reports going back to even earlier years. As a non-coder, it is hard for me to comprehend how an ultra basic "feature" of a note-taking program can fail for so many years. I can only suspect that the root cause of these cursor bugs is so deep and entangled in the code that nobody dares to even try to fix it. Far more fun to change typography, color schemes, and other brand refreshments. That could be why, even now, after 7+ years of cursor bugs, even after the latest rebuild, all we hear is: Maybe there's some other explanation for the cursor bugs that I don't understand. Please enlighten me if you know the answer. I'd love for an Evernote employee to just say "We're not going to build things like Home screens, Tasks, and new logos until basic elements like cursors just work because typing is important." Then it would be great if they could just follow through on that. I won't hold my breath.
  10. So sometimes Evernote allows you to read your notes and sometimes it does not. Like, whatevs, amirite? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It's probably time for Evernote employees to devote a bunch of resources to updating the color scheme on the home screen.
  11. These responses just do not sound promising to me. When I say "Do the brakes work?", people pretty much know that means "Do the brakes slow and stop the car as expected?" and thus nobody says "Well, there are lots of different ways brakes can work and you never really know until you try." I need nothing fancy from Evernote as I mainly use it to store recipes and have otherwise migrated away. Typing, reading, saving data, pasting images, that's pretty much it. I'm worried that if I try V10, Evernote will cause my entire computer to lag and screwy things will happen with legacy and my data. Sounds like I will have to wait at least a few more months before trying V10.
  12. Do you think you could make a video of this, post it here, and also describe your hardware? Maybe watching that super long lag time in the video will get enough attention at Evernote to divert some resources away from rearranging home screen buttons and towards basic performance improvements.
  13. Rebooting your entire computer every 15 minutes to cut the lag time when switching notes down to 20 seconds? This is so absurd that I can't even tell if it's sarcastic or not.
  14. This is terrible. I'm most shocked by how you can't tell what has and hasn't synced. Is there actually nothing as simple as a green check mark or "saved to cloud" message or something like that to indicate to the user that data has been stored? How are users supposed to know, ever, when any data is saved?
