  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. I'm using Evernote across a MacBook Pro, a brand new iPad, and a pretty brand new iPhone, and am experiencing the same problem. I spend a lot of time shrinking full-size images I've brought into EN (either by pasting directly or inserting from a photo library). On my laptop, they're huge and slow down the scroll of long notes, so resizing them helps make for a more efficient work environment. The problem is, I'll go back to my Mac OS after working on a note on my iPad, and now all the images are back to full size! Is there a way to avoid this? I've tried putting images in tables, but tha
  10. Evernote syncs with every keystroke! This is super annoying, as it creates a lag in typing, and also reloads the thumbnail image in the Note List column, which is so visually distracting I had to disable card view in favor of the snippet. (Also annoying is not having a ⌘+O option to open the active note in its own window!) Most cloud-based apps sync in regular intervals, which would be far preferable to syncing with every bloody keystroke! It makes me wonder if Evernote in general is unable to manage its buffering with any level of proficiency, as this might explain why, on all the iOS de
  11. I’ve been a Premium user for 5 years now and the product has only gotten worse. They roll out more and more features that nobody seems to ever really test—or request—and they completely ignore the numerous pleas to fix the most irritating and frustrating issues that affect basic functionality—like keeping a note active in the background! As infuriating as this is—as it brings the creative process and flow to a dead stop every single time—it’s made so much worse by the EN dev team being “aware” of it while being completely incapable of fixing it. Seems like it should be pretty straightforward,
  12. It’s aggravating enough that I have to keep finding where I left off in the middle of writing a fairly lengthy piece—particularly as I often jump around within a note—but I also lose all my undo stages, so if I accidentally obliterate a chunk of work, I better remember what it was or I’m screwed! I feel like this problem is the result of poor memory allocation on the iPad, as it takes forever to open my photos from within the app. It takes so long I think the app is frozen! This isn’t a problem on the iPhone.
  13. The Evernote dev team does one thing consistently well: it lets user requests and complaints persist for years without ever addressing them. Well done! Turns out that half-assed is half a cheek too much in Evernote’s management team.
  14. Here's a workaround to this really annoying issue (made more annoying by not being able to search for paragraph breaks, much less replace them with double breaks!) without having to lose all your formatting to do it: NOTE: The workaround is also annoying, but at least it works: If you're pasting from Mac Pages or other editor into EN, yes, you'll lose all your double break returns (because EN encodes a carriage return as a "<div>" and not a "<p>&nbsp;</p>"). Instead, open a WYSIWYG editor, like https://html-online.com/editor/, and paste your formatted text into
