  1. I just installed the latest version of EN, 10.13.4, and sadly, the look up functionality still hasn't been restored. Seriously? There isn't a single app anywhere that doesn't provide look up functionality as a contextual menu option. As a writer, I rely on this. Now I have to keep Thesaurus.com open at all times when working on my desktop version of EN. I prefer writing big stuff on my MacBook Pro, and now EN has relegated itself obsolete for my needs. How is it even possible to have removed this feature when it's a standard presence across everything from email to browser to text editor. HOW
  2. I just updated to latest version on iPad, hoping it would fix the malady I keep experiencing: 1) Click on note in left sidebar. 2) Note opens (after a while). 3) Scroll to bottom of note. 4) Click to begin writing. 5) The instant the note becomes active it then freezes. 6) In my impatience and determination, I click and hold at the point I'd LIKE to be entering text. 7) Suddenly, note comes alive and proceeds to scroll back to the top at lightspeed. 8) I can enter a character up at the top, but that's it. The note kind of takes over and wherever I try
  3. Unbelievable how Evernote claims to giveth, but really it just taketh away. I can no longer select my own fonts, which is painful as a designer, but fine, whatever 😡. I can finally search AND replace, but if I go one at a time (vs. Replace All), the replace is performed without showing the replacement text before advancing to the next instance. Infuriating. But the latest discovery is the glaring omission of the "Look Up" option when control-clicking on a select word. How is that even possible, given that I can do that in every app on my Mac, including the browser version of Evernote! OMG you
  4. Okay, I saw that, but apparently I applied my own interpretation to that, since all my notes already pretty much looked the same in my preferred font. I didn’t read that as: “Say goodbye to font selection and defer to our developers who have made the choice for you.” I thought fonts would still be selectable, just as a reduced selection of standardized choices. Not NONE.
  5. I always read the release notes before upgrading to a new version, and I never saw anything about custom font selection being eradicated from the Mac OS version of the app. Smart not to mention it, EN DEV TEAM, because if you had, I never would have wasted my time downloading and installing 10.8.5, which has changed the look of all my notes to a uniform generic look I had no say in or control over. And best of all (NOT!) there isn't even a preference for applying a specific font as the default "Sans serif" option. I'm completely floored by this random act of cruelty. If you're going to handcuf
  6. On iPhone and iPad, Evernote is not seeing my Favorites photo album in Photos when I click on Insert Image. It’s seeing all the others, but not Favorites! That wouldn’t be nearly so frustrating if at least the little heart icon appeared in the thumbnails to indicate a favorite. Now I have to select the image(s) in Photos and send it to Evernote, where I can then copy and paste it into the destination note. Another setback in efficiency, ease and productivity. Thank you, Evernote. 😡
  7. I’m running EN 10.0.4 on a new IPad running iOS 13.0.7 and EN is so slow I use Bear to jot quick notes. It opens immediately, whereas EN just hangs on the elephant logo screen. Then it takes another endless minute for my selected note to open. Yes, it’s a lengthy note, but still... it shouldn’t take this long. First, I see a black screen, and finally the note content loads, followed by the note’s title, and all the while the blue edit button is flickering. It takes another chunk of time to actually get into edit mode and get to the end of the document. If I do a search to get to the end—becaus
  8. Every time I issue a support ticket, the reply I get back is a request to share a video of my screen, despite my listing all my steps in detail along with all the specifics of my hardware and software configuration. I refuse to do this, as my notes are proprietary and private and I would have to create an artificial, simulated version of my library—and whatever I happen to be googling in Safari while writing—just to video my typing in a note and then going to Safari and then returning to the note. Worse, Evernote’s behavior is often wonky and unpredictable, so it can take a while just to get i
  9. I see how it happens: Every time I leave the note I’m working on and come back, I see the edit button flicker, the note focus return to the top, then back to the bottom where I left off, then re-enter edit mode, and then spawn multiple copies of the note, for each time it was left and returned to (presumably). Omg this is killing me! I can no longer spend any time writing in Evernote because I keep having to come back to this forum and log the latest observations of how this app is drastically failing. IS IT POSSIBLE TO RETURN TO THE FIRST VERSION OF EVERNOTE BEFORE IT BECAME A BLOAT
  10. There is so much wrong with the search functionality I can’t begin to know if it’s the new iOS 14 or the new EN v.10.0, but what I do know is this app is bringing me to tears. My life is writing, and I subscribe to this app so I never have to lose a bear regardless of what device I’m on. That said, my notes are long, and because I couldn’t keep a note open for a second if I went to another app, I got in the habit of putting a “%%%” at the end of every note so I could do a quick search to get to the end. Now, when I do that search, the note goes dark, or blank, or just stalls while I wait to ge
  11. For a minute it was really nice feeling like Evernote and I were finally playing well together, thanks to my note actually staying active while I replied to an email. Then I discovered my note was haplessly reproducing behind my back! The sole reason I’m using this app is to maintain fluidity and consistency across my pad, phone and laptop! By the end of yesterday I had 12 copies of my note, each with one less word or character than the successive version. WTF! But since the note is staying open, I’ve now moved over to the conflicting note/multiple copy issue, which is now the new outlet for m
  12. Seems like every time I edit the note, three more copies are spawned. But that’s not even the worst part: I can’t get rid of the alert at the top of the original note telling me that a conflict has resulted in the note being copied. I’ve tried clicking the “x” to close the window, manually syncing The note, and a hard reboot of the app. Nothing works, and I have no idea what the point of the “view note” link is, as it just reloads the note. I finally copied the content of the note and made a fresh version, which of course, sacrifices the original creation time stamp.
  13. When I initiate a search within an open note, it takes a while for the number of found results to register. So at first it seems like there either weren’t any results, or the operation didn’t take. But the really frustrating part is that the note doesn’t automatically scroll to the first instance of the found search result. This is then further exacerbated by the search term not highlighting at all, and/or (because the results are inconsistent) the arrows not moving through the note to show where the other instances are. My use case: I searched for a single word that I saw present in the
  14. Okay, I Installed 10.0 on my iPad. On the plus side, my note actually stayed open in edit mode in the background! So that’s awesome. On the bummer side, I keep getting a dialog at the top of my note that a copy has been made due to a conflict. The “view note” link in the box loads a note with the same title, but with empty content. I thought I’d finally gotten rid of the message by manually syncing the note, but I just went back, only to discover the app doing a fresh reboot, and now I have six copies of that same note—along with the conflict message at the top. But at least the note sta
