  1. Such arrogance you have. Have you been appointed EN's official spokesperson? How about you let EN respond to this? They may be able to explain why it takes over 4 years of requests to provide one of the most basic features of a text editor and not even have it considered it for this BETA release. What a joke. If my latest message gets under your skin, then quite frankly, I don't care. I'll decide whether or not my messages are pointless or not.
  2. So when will Find and Replace be available for Mac? It's been over 4 years of countless requests. For the love of Pete - is this so difficult to implement? I think not. To paraphrase a quote from another user on this thread - Can you just add to your help pages a page that says "No Mac users, we are never ever at any time going to allow you to Find and Replace like we provide on the PC platform, so stop asking. It is never going to happen."
  3. Don't hold your breath. After 4 years, you would think that this 'easy to implement' functionality would be available for Mac users. Worst support team ever!
  4. It's simple - deductive reasoning. The very fact that you would imply EN publishing a decision 'they clearly made' on this issue in a public forum would be preposterous. This statement shows you are trivializing the context of what is being discussed regarding the request. What is "true" is that it doesn't take years to implement such a trivial request. Now, you may or may not be a Software Engineer. I don't know; but I am. I have been developing software for over 25 years in a number of capacities: Computer Scientist, Mathematics Programming / Cryptologist, and Data Scientist. Anyon
  5. Unfortunately Evernote has no intentions on implementing this trivial feature. Evernote's management and development team has made a conscious decision to ignore what has been years of requests in two different forums and attempts to contact them directly. Without competition, EN is free to ignore its customer base and make no effort on producing cross-platform quality code. OneNote does bring with it a much more advanced editor with features that Evernote would never be able to produce; however, it too does not have Find and Replace (at least this was my experience on the Mac version of OneNo
  6. Ditto. I finally cancelled my Premium Membership as did my Son. This company doesn't deserve a dime for its foolishness and complete incompetency in not implementing what is a trivial coding task and part of any text processing application. Every upvote for this feature since 2013 has fallen on deaf ears. What Evernote fails to understand is that to remain relevant in today's cloud-based market, it is essential to have broad cross-platform compatibility with a native client. And yes, this includes Linux! If Evernote put more of an emphasis on the quality and compatibility of their code base ra
  7. The excuse I am referring to is your constant mention of the 'common editor' and the time and effort they put into it. Implementing Find/Replace is trivial, easy, simple, straightforward, etc. If they were truly looking at cost / benefit, they would have knocked this out of the park long ago and saved a lot of frustrations that are clearly documented in this thread. You are correct, this is not a democratic process and EN does have exclusive power to introduce or ignore feature requests. What EN has to understand is that they are no longer the only player in market now. Users now have the
  8. Although Find and Replace hasn't made it to Mac 6.11 / Beta 1, the update (and the link to the release notes) is much appreciated. This is valuable information that will allow me to decide on a product that best coincides with my use case (which as of today, I've already made that decision).
  9. At this point, there are no more excuses that EN can provide that holds water. Their development / management team has obviously made a conscious decision that they have no intent on improving their product on the Mac platform. As I've previously mentioned in this insane thread, anyone with a development background knows what little effort it would take to code this feature. How do I know, I've been developing software for 25 years! Although Objective-C is not my first language of choice, it is very straightforward once you get past some of its idiosyncrasies. I used it years ago when developi
  10. What I've found is that Evernote "does" read these comments. Unfortunately, they have been ignoring them for nearly 3 years. I refuse to call Find/Replace a "feature request". This is core functionality found in any editor and an oversight on Evernote's part for their Mac implementation. 3 years and no response from Evernote's development team on what is no more than a few day's worth of development and unit testing - what an embarrassment.
  11. Close minded? Hi pot, meet kettle. In all of your posts, you seem to be compelled to defend Evernote's decision to ignore the vast number of Mac users who are making this request based on the fact that "your" particular user case works for you. And I'm closed minded? It's great that the product works for you, but this thread, along with others, disagree with you. Are you a developer / software engineer? If so, you might open your thought process to understand the frustration I and others are having with Evernote's oversight in not implementing for Mac what should be core functionalit
  12. Possibly one of the most lame excuses for an organization to ignore a segment of their user community to perform what is a trivial implementation. As I've discussed at length, this is not a "feature request", it is for EN to fix an oversight on their part on the Mac platform. To date, EN is the only editor that I know of in modern times that does not provide Find/Replace functionality. Seriously, even character mode text editors that date back decades (vi, Emacs, ed) have Find/Replace. As for votes, this forum, along with others, and the years it is still active should be enough to encour
  13. Ticket# 1990313 opened with EN. Will provide updates to this thread as I find out more about: 1. Why this functionality has yet to be implemented after multiple years of requests / demands. 2. Why the EN development team fails to acknowledge this on the forums. It is a clear oversight on their part and they fail to acknowledge it. 3. Over the past year, what other features / patches took higher precedence than implementing the request for Find / Replace. 4. A true date on when Find / Replace will be implemented on the Mac.
  14. @DTLow Why is it that you continue to defend what is absolutely indefensible? For years, Mac users have been asking for one of the most basic functions of any word processing application - Find/Replace. As I've mentioned in previous posts, this is something that can be implemented in less than a week. This is not rocket science. It is inconceivable that EN doesn't have this "easy" task at the top of their priority list. Here is why this is so frustrating to me as a Software Engineer. While EN hasn't officially announced the language / framework used for Mac, I was able to deduce that it i
  15. You are really taking me back in time! I still remember the first time I used StarOffice in the late 90's. I really tried to like it. Today, all of my documentation is either LaTeX (or Knitr within RStudio) or MS Word. You'll have to let me know what your experience is with OneNote. My first impression was that it provided a great deal of functionality.
