  1. My Android phone (Samsung Note10+) has EN 10.16 but I suspect it will soon auto update to v10.17. I have recently noticed that EN for Android 10.16 does not allow the find/select a notebook option (via the search field) when clipping pages from Chrome (haven't tried other sources/apps). The option and field is there, it just does nothing, is unresponsive. Anyone else experience this or know of fix? cheers
  2. V10 desktop is without a doubt slower than V6.25.1 no matter your setup. It has improved in my toe dipping for simple note navigation, though still slower. I have not tried but more complicated multi note activities are reported to be more impacted. Probably not the worst for a casual user but if you use EN to manage a paperless life style it could get annoying. Hence I an still on 6.25.1. Hoping this speed issue is fixed before that version sunsets. Was just reading through this thread when I came upon Cals remarks 'quoted above'. This really 'hits the nail on the proverbial head', re my fear of what may/will happen when EN sunsets/pulls-the-plug on V6.25.1, where I continue to sit, all smug like, that I wasn't an early adopter of v10. So if/when the curtains come down on v6.25, and if speed/performance has not been fixed by then, and given its now 10 months since Oct 2020 v10 release and seemingly not much improvement yet, regardless of how many updates purport to have improved speed/performance then I will be heading straight to OneNote or Nimbus. Pretty disappointed I'm still reading about speed/performance issues nearly a year later!
  3. *UPDATE* & EDIT Ok so I did get this to work, which was the same as my old approach, and does not require any exporting of Notes, so MikeP 1st 2 steps! I tested by pasting all the links into a Task on the online web-app 'Asana' and they worked great to open the EN Note on EN-desktop instead of EN-Web. But the 1st time I was asked where to open the links - to which i said on EN desktop windows etc. However for it work- I had to first revert the EN Web Client to the 'Classic Version' (old interface) via EN-Web account settings... and then links #1, #4, plus the two links generated from the new EN Web interface and inserted (as pictured above), did indeed open the note on EN-Windows, and as a separate window...nice! BUT...as soon as I changed the EN-Web client/interface back to the new/latest/greatest version... everything stopped working!!! Should it be that hard?
  4. I use/work from my desktop most of the time, and what I'm loving about the 'Notion' App, which has a client for all platforms web/desktop/app etc, is that if you want to create a link that opens a Notion note/page on the Notion desktop (v web app) specifically, they advise to just swap out 'https' in the URL link to 'notion' and voila... that would be nice if EN could do that. I did exactly as you advised... (see image) 1- I generated all link types, and pasted into the note, whilst using EN-Win, exported and clicked all link types but no joy, in so much as that no link type opened the Note in EN-Windows... which is what I'm trying to achieve! So I was only able to successfully complete the first 2 of your 5-steps, as Step#3 did not appear on my PC re 'where to open note' it just went straight to the destination!? 2- Closed EN-Win, and opened the same Note in EN-Web then added the 2 links types EN web offers and pasted to the note ...at this point EN-Web does not offer/or I could not find, a way to export a single Note...so I closed EN-Web and back to EN-Windows... exported and followed your steps but again no link opened the note in EN Windows... some links opened a dumb copy whereas others opened inside the EN-Web app (which is nicer/preferred). Plus I noticed that in EN Web the note now had a icon indicating it was being shared (again see images) so no way to create an APP-Link that indeed opens the EN-app on desktop...that I can see!
  5. Yes I did...but I forgot to mention it. The link structure (for the same note) is the same as you showed e.g.: APP Link: evernote:///view/28358236/s233/a71... WEB Link: https://www.evernote.com/shard/s233/nl/28358236/a716... That's what I expected, hoped, would happen... to have the Note open using the EN-Windows desktop app, but no, not the case! Is this feature/function not yet fully operational? Is it because my desktop EN app is legacy v6.25? Ultimately I was hoping I could generate a link to a note, that when pasted in another desktop or web enabled app, i.e. Notion, Asana etc would open the Note in EN-Windows. My old solution for this no longer works...sera sera I guess, cheers.
  6. When working on a Note, using EN-Web (very latest version) on my Win10 PC using Chrome browser... I noticed the 3-dot-elipses menu in the top right corner. One of the options there is 'Copy Internal Link' that then has a further 2x options to select from 'Copy app link' or 'Copy web link' I generated both link-types as a test, and inserted in the same note, but there was NO difference when clicking the different links, except the 'web link' resulted in a new tab being opened on my browser! So what is the difference between them? What is their intended use?
  7. I took a very brief look at 'NimbusNote' approx. 5 months ago, but figured I'd wait-n-see if EN got it's game together. I took another look yesterday, using the web client, and I was amazed. Format Painter, Table of Contents inside a note linking to Headings 1-2-3, so jump links to anywhere inside the note (esp useful for me as i have many long form notes. Use of blocks to design the page, unlimited nested folders, 1GB file size upload/note size limit etc etc... plus half the $$ price for similar specs compared to EN. However search seemed lousy, and I remember having some issues with their data security that I will need to revisit. But overall I was so impressed and given its 8 months later and EN still don't appear to be on top of their game, yet, means I will most likely put some criteria together of most important stuff I'm after in a note-taking/knowledge management system then compare and make a call whether to stay or go.
  8. I've remained on legacy v6.25 for Windows, and am waiting for the skies to clear, and the birds to sing before I upgrade to v10. But so far I have found the web client excellent, and latest Android app really good, except a little slower perhaps, notwithstanding I rarely use EN on those platforms. But to your comment... Over the past days, I have been studying and building my Task Management system now in 'Notion'. My plan is to use Notion for all Goals/Projects/Workflows/Task Management etc... so it will be my central Hub. EN will then serve as my Knowledge Management System/glorified Filing Cabinet, as for now the EN interface is cleaner, the web clipper clips better, better search function etc... but I think the day may come that if Notion closes the gap in these areas I too could jump ship. And to @hanseric comment re Playstore feedback... yeah when I look at feedback since 7 months ago, back to v10 launch in Oct 2020 on MS-Store, PlayStore, Appstore etc... 98% of all the feedback is 1-star. Combine this with so many premium users, that have never posted on this forum, chiming in for the first time, compelled by woeful v10 experience & issues, well... So I wonder if @Ian Small will indeed "sell more EN subs in the 12 months to Oct 2021, than they did in the previous 5-years" because that type of community feedback does nothing to sell the product to new first time users considering EN.
  9. Another user put me onto this solution (see below) some time ago... see forum thread here Essentially you can use Microsoft' built in Dictation tool, accessed at anytime via a simple keyboard shortcut: Windows-logo + H (keys) Read the thread linked to above for more, but it works 95% accurate for me.
  10. When using EN-Windows (v6.25), I sort my notes in a side-list view using 'Title' only. This way only 1x row appears for each Note in the side-list giving a very compact no-need-to-scroll (much) view. A recent EN-Web update, allowed for the exact same and consistent 'Title only' display of the notes within a notebook. However in EN-Android (I'm on v10.8.2), EN displays three rows of info for each note within a notebook. My view options are set to 'Small' and Show images+body text+tags are all deselected. So Row 1 shows Note Title, Row 2 a blank line, or reminder if one present, and Row 3 a date (perhaps last updated date)! Any ideas if and when EN will or may, allow the same consistent view on Android? -or- is there a setting I'm missing, cheers. See screenshot from phone attached. If not too much trouble @Shane D. could you or team member weigh in...thanks
  11. Hello @Narnk both of the above, are now working for me on my Win10 PC, and when creating/editing a note in EN-for-Win v6.25.1 (or any other Windows app or even Google search/browser). I love WINkey+H to activate and start dictating straight in EN...awesome. Everything turned on when I was activating and enabling all permissions in MS Cortana. So don't know forsure but it appears like something here was preventing WIN+H or the mic icon on the keyboard from being active. Anyway its all working fine now. So for others that may read this try enabling/activating Cortana if like me you had turned it all off...cheers
  12. YEP, that worked perfect, thanks Oh right... I wasn't aware. I use EN-windows most of the time, followed by EN-Android, EN-iOS, and lastly EN-Web. I reckon the TamperMonkey chrome extension solution discussed in the link you shared should work fine with V10... be good to know for others that may red this thread. For now I will use right-click on external links when using EN-Web. Thanks everyone
  13. Ok, thanks for that. From recollection, EN-Web wasn't like this before the recent v10 upgrades. So based on what you said re legal stuff, and if I get what you're saying, they have done this to close a legal hole/potential issue, that previously was wide open for them!? Hopefully they can remove the pop-up roadblock at some time in the near future...cheers
  14. Hi @gbarry... are ehrt74 comments above, correct? If so why would there be a distinction between external links pointing to Evernote's website/subdomains that open immediately or 'the first time', and other non-Evernote websites where I am hit by the 'You are Leaving Evernote' Roadblock popup? Just stretching a little further, can you explain why this pop-up is even needed? I mean, the external links do open in a separate tab, so it's not like the active EN session-tab disappears.
  15. I read something about an update to the latest EN-Web version, claiming they fixed the multiple click's required when clicking a hyperlink/external link that goes to another website. Quote: External links in your notes now open the first time you click them However I am still getting the 'YOU ARE LEAVING EVERNOTE' popup asking to 'Continue' or 'Back'. I'm using EN-Web version is 10.8.4-web (230)... is this the latest version? Should this double click issue still persist? Note - any external links in my notes about the Evernote company/resources that link back to the main EN website or subdomains do indeed 'open the first time' yet any other website takes multiple clicks...
