  1. AFAIK, the way Evernote performs OCR and search indexing means it is not possible to store notes on third party cloud storage. Even if it were, it wouldn't make any difference because Evernote would still need access to your notes to perform the previously described key functionality. Evernote's handwriting recognition does not work as you think. Images and scanned pdfs have OCR performed on them solely in order to allow you to search for them. You are able to contact Evernote as evidenced by this post. You could also contact them via twitter. What you're describing is not having sup
  2. Wild guess I know, but perhaps there is a minimum display size needed to show the left panel that your laptop's screen's smaller than. You could try changing the screen resolution to show more screen real estate to rule it out.
  3. @DTLow Yeah I was thinking that, that there must be a much higher proportion of paid users on desktop.
  4. Web ~12% Windows ~12% Mac ~12% IOS ~32% Android ~32% What do I win? I must say I am very surprised such a majority is on mobile. How I used to use Evernote was completely different. Please could you clarify that editable file attachments on desktop will still be a feature? It is the #1 feature I miss about Evernote. I suppose so with having a local store. I know you don't want to give to much away but I would be very encouraged by this news.
  5. I wish I had as much time as you do to get into such a lengthy discussion, but the fact remains that two months later nothing seems to have changed. Obviously this annoys you and your loyalty is, while difficult to comprehend, err just difficult to comprehend. Anyway, I hope Evernote get their act together one day.
  6. I don't want to be rude, but it's two months since your new CEO announced you were going to "fix essential features" and I see no evidence of it. One and a half months after the last GA and there are only 5 bug fixes in this beta. Are we to assume everyone is working on the web app and that the desktop apps are on their way out? If not, what are you all doing all day?
  7. My fear is they throw all of their resources at the web app (which already exists) and mobile apps, and abandon the desktop ones. Bear in mind he's talking about a "mobile first" experience. Maybe they'll try and replicate the missing desktop features as much as possible. Of course it makes sense if they have less platforms to maintain, but I can't see a web app ever replicating the desktop experience. If they have reduced the workforce, maybe they don't just don't have the resources to maintain the 5 platforms. @jefito
  8. I'm on an Mac and am currently using Finder. It's got tags and I just create files for notes. I miss not being able to have attachments inline with text and not being able to share online as easily, but I'm managing. For me the editable documents inline though is the killer feature that I haven't seen anywhere else - except OneNote which I really don't like.
  9. If it isn't a desktop top app that syncs to the the local file system then it will be completely different for me. There are lots of note taking apps nowadays, but only Evernote has a true desktop app. Having to download files, update them, then upload them is not something I want to have to do.
  10. So basically Evernote web in a container on the desktop. That would mean the end of synchronising with desktop - no more updating file attachments which is one of the few things that sets Evernote apart from the competition. Good call. I was actually entertaining the idea of going back to Evernote with this news, but I'd better wait and see what their plans are.
  11. People just want the features Evernote’s editor has to work properly. Nothing more. Tables. Copy and paste. Basic stuff. @jefito
  12. You really have to be a bot. There’s no other sane explanation.
  13. Better keep your fingers crossed they don't shut it down then. ?
  14. There’s a cloud storage service that is currently offering a lifetime subscription. It’s called pCloud and I wonder if this is sustainable.
  15. I too am frustrated by Evernote, but are you really saying your problem is the UI? Not the text editor bugs, problems with sharing, missing notes or workchat? Your team is going to explode with frustration because it's not pretty enough? Or am I missing something?
  16. So basic notes in your case don't include lists or tables. And you don't copy and paste. Thanks for clearing that up.
  17. Ok. So you agree that there is a problem with the editor, and that in fact it isn't 'fine for basic notes'.
  18. Then I don't understand. Why do you say the editor is 'fine for basic use' if it isn't? I don't know if anyone is asking for a complex word-processing app. Just that the included tools, you know, actually work. I guess that would be asking too much.
  19. I think we can agree that lists should work. And tables. And copy and paste. I understand that you maybe don't use these features, but what''s your point here? If they are in the note editor, they should work. Why should I have to attach a word document to put a list or a table? Why on earth are you defending this? ???
  20. No it's not. If you use Evernote for document storage then you probably won't notice, but the editor is actually really buggy. I'd prefer they fix it before adding any new formatting tools.
  21. Please do. Try and point out to some tech sites that Evernote knowingly introduce bugs to GA just because they are working to some artificial deadline. Point out some of the threads on this forum where longtime users are utterly fed up with this. They are so keen to release new features that they don't care if they break/remove old ones. If I weren't so invested in Evernote I would have left ages ago and I so fed up I am considering spending part of my Easter holiday moving to MacOs notes/Finder, which to give some perspective would mean spending less time with my children and I REALLY do
  22. It would be a great idea if evernote didn't knowingly push buggy upgrades.
  23. I am here reading the forums because I know that Evernote has a problem with reliability. Being as I am tech savvy, I know to do such things, but that does not mean that people should have to. If my mother wants to use Evernote, should she come here too to check if some bug is being introduced? Of course not.
