  1. Evernote is very open minded about bugs. But you will not believe that EN loses data without me proving it. Which, of course, I can't. Welldone, you. As for no software being free of bugs, I experience Dropbox as being free of bugs. Am I going to occupy myself with the works of Godel and Turing? Well, I guess I'm going to be badarse and not do that. I saved them to Dropbox but can't find them.
  2. Read the New York Times article from a few days ago. There are bugs. They are trying to recruit to fix them. Meanwhile, the new releases have more bugs. Draw your own conclusions.
  3. ... oh that's right. You can't. Or, you have had 10 years, and the bug fixes are just around the corner. You just need to recruit some talent. To your non-unicorn. Whatever. I'll check back in 5 years.
  4. ... even if it is pretty impossible to get your information out once you have got it in. Evernote has been around for more than 10 years. I was using it a few years ago, and it had bugs. It still has bugs. A program for saving information that has bugs is not fit for purpose. Dropbox does not have bugs and also stores information. You put stuff in it, and you can get it out again. Dropbox deserves my money. Evernote does not. I have not heard about Microsoft Notes having bugs. But I would not use it anyway. I will be checking to see if they still bill me.
  5. Read the article. The boss published a blog post in January saying that there were bugs and undesirable behaviours and that it was going to take most of the year to get if fixed. The article says that he still has not recruited the people needed to fix the bugs. And that happened after big lot of layoffs. And it is struggling to employ the talent, the article suggests. And the year is half over. The article ends by saying that people are "rooting for Evernote to pull it off". Not that anyone on this forum would admit that there were bugs. Evernote has been around for over ten years. And this is supposed to be the year that the bugs get removed? Actually this is the year that more bugs were added, if you read your own support forums. The bottom line is that a program that is designed to capture information, and that has bugs, is not fit for purpose. Thanks for reminding me. I am, right now, going to attempt to cancel my subscription so I can stop giving these duplicitous tech billionaires my money. And, those of you on this forum who donate your time to tech billionaires, for a perpetually-broken product, why?
  6. Or, it could be the permanent bugs mentioned in the NYT article.
  7. NYT article said that EN has permanent bugs. Looks like they can't afford to test their software before "updates". Nice.
  8. New York Times article: there are bugs that will never be removed. LOL!!! Forgot to mention that, eh?
  9. The New York Times had a piece quoting Evernote people as saying that there are bugs with Evernote that are so embedded that they can never be removed. That tallies nicely with my experience of having information disappear out of the blue... and to get backup, you need the paid version (which, thankfully, I have). That, surely is a record tech billionaire double joke... need to pay to overcome the permanent bugs. Have a nice day.
  10. I was researching a topic on the net, and clipping bits of screens shots and website. A couple of things appeared in the notes list in the ap. Of those, and a couple more appeared in the web version. The rest were absent. Also, in the past, some notes have just disappeared and I had to get them back from the web. Your app is great for homemade Pinterest, but hopeless for work. Bye. Well, bye soon. First I have to extract my stuff. Evernote: computer herpes.
  11. Is One Note better? Fancy a note keeping program losing data? Madness.
  12. Hi I lost data again, and had to get it back with an old version of the note. I was editing a note. It had information in an image of text. The image disappeared from the note. Undoing the "edit" did not bring the image back. This is poor for a note keeping app.
  13. Hi. Intermittently, EN displays the wrong folder name. What happens is that I have been looking in a particular folder, click on the folder name and select a different folder. EN pauses and then displays the selected folder, but the displayed name of the folder does not change. One problem from this is, for example, that I am looking at notes in my !Inbox folder, and I can't merge them because (it seems) EN still thinks that it is looking in the Trash folder. I get an option to restore the notes (again!) but no option to merge them. What gives? This happens even after rebooting the computer, too, BTW. Thanks!
  14. "Cofounder" / "Me and me mates have written a program for people to use". "TomaRto" / "TomaYto". I have moved my Evernote data into the Google Drive folder. Hope that works.
