Thank you for the response.
I didn't realise that Evernote was quite this fragmented across platforms. I've only ever read glowing reviews of it and was quite unpleasantly surprised to discover how limited the web client in particular is.
It sounds as if some patience is going to be needed on my part in the hope of improvement.
Thank you for the candid response. It's an all too familiar tale; only the name of the company is different. I had hoped that Evernote was one of the other kind of companies, the kind to which criticism like this does not apply.
On the other hand, I don't have much invested in the platform at this stage. I'll work with what's available to me right now and see whether I can work around the software's shortcomings.
To Evernote's credit, I should add that I have tried various alternatives to Evernote these last few days and found all of them to be unworkable. OneNote was functionally more or less equivalent, but so slow on the web that it was effectively unusable.
