  1. ilw, Evernote development team axed all the old versions. 6.7.6 is the oldest supported version, and it unfortunately, has fat ass margins.
  2. Thank you. Even tho I already know this, for those that don't, I appreciate you posting. The more posting we do in the forum, the more they will hopefully notice. Here's my take. I don't think I'm that different from other business owners. I look at all feedback. I search my company, read if people are talking about me. I read my employees notes, customer feedback, and Invision what I can do to fix things. Then we talk about it on Mondays. I walk through problem areas with my team and ensure everyone is on the same page. I got the attention of Evernote CEO the other day on Twitter. He tweeted back and thanked me for the feedback, and said he's working on streamlining all of this nonsense. We'll see. I'm on 6.8.7 or whatever. Don't like it, but none of the older versions will sync for me.
  3. Reposting this to answer everyone's questions. Evernote Team blocked Evernote versions older than 6.7.6 due to a security flaw they found. They are refusing to create patches for older versions. I'm pissed because the newer versions beyond 6.5.4 have wide GIANT ASS margins on the sides. My employees use small monitors mounted to the wall, and I have spacing constraints. The margins reserved for tables make no sense. The devs could have made a floating table toolbar instead. Anyways. They state that they are only supporting 6.7.6 and higher due to this security flaw. However, the patch they released for 6.7.6 is broken. So, you'll have to upgrade to 6.8.7. When they fix 6.7.6, then you can jump to that.

  7. Hi, Let's be honest. Your current UI/UX is a *****-show. Your developers are not good at design, and I have doubts about their coding skills in general. One thing is changed or added, a button is moved, and something else brakes. He's struggling. Cut him off and find someone who knows their stuff. Please, scrap your current design. Moving around buttons isn't going to fix anything. I'm a premium user, and I will continue using Evernote regardless of if you listen to my feedback. Version 6.5.4 was the best version you've had thus far. Since then, it's been a *****-show. I took 30 seconds and looked through Pinterest and found several better examples of what Evernote could look like. Scrap the current design and make Evernote modern. Use Microsoft's new fluid design. Examples below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EePBJ38Shh0 Look, I'm Not Trying to Be A Dick. I'm just beyond frustrated. When Evernote was completely free with no syncing restrictions, I still paid for the Premium version. I didn't need it at the time, but I wanted to support a product that became a core part of how I run my business. There is nothing like Evernote. Nothing. Not even OneNote compares. Let me give you a quick tour... How I Use Evernote to Effortlessly Run My Business I run a company, with a team of 5 people not including me. Evernote and Slack are the heart of my business. Everything goes in Evernote. Paper Work Orders are filled out and signed by customer electronically using a Surface Pro 4. Uploaded to Evernote on client's file. We document all interactions with clients, meetings, training material, training curriculum and course material for the interns, the list goes on and on. Integration with IFTTT is fantastic. I make my employees use Slack for our team communication. We discuss customers, projects, etc. Anytime a customer Work Order is added to a certain tag, IFTTT posts in the Slack channel. Everyone knows everything that's going on. I run a tight ship. Evernote is a huge part of making my well oiled machine work. Each release, each beta, I download inside a Virtual Machine, hoping that finally you guys have listened. How about going here >> https://discussion.evernote.com/forum/304-general-feature-requests/?sortby=forums_topics.question_rating&sortdirection=desc and implement the top 5 things we've been asking for years for.

    note margins

    Really such a half-assed approach to a feature that should have been implemented correct from the beginning. I run a business and employ a team of software engineers. We use Evernote heavily as a way to track assignments, projects, tasks, ideas, and research. I'm usually on the other side, cluing people in that software and web apps aren't as simple as you think, and to give the company a break. This is one situation where, if it was my employee that did this, I would put my foot down and say, "No. This is wrong. Go back and do it correctly. Have the controls float over the table, or have a little popout floating tables toolbar. Don't reserve space application-wide for a feature that not everyone wants, or is using." Yeah, I know, I'm probably sounding a bit like a dick. Truth is, I've been using Evernote for 8 years now. I have no plans or desires to switch to a different collaboration platform. I pay for the premium version, billed every year, and it will stay that way. I will continue using version 6.5 with updates turned off. I will NOT be deploying the current 6.9 update. I will not be passing Go, and I will not be collecting my $200. I am staying right where I am at until this silly thing is resolved. Not that the right person is going to see this, but being a business owner for 10 years, and having never gone to school for it; I've learned the hard way, what it takes to run a successful operation, and just how easy it is to think you have the right people aboard, when in reality, you have the wrong people on the bus, and the bus is headed in the wrong direction. If I were in charge of the Evernote Windows team, I'd fire the guy who's making the design choices. If you don't have a designer, get one, and stop making your Lead Dev fulfill roles that he's not good at.
  9. Sadly, like many other people have mentioned, my issues still haven't been resolved either. I use Evernote here at my office with a team of employees. They all use smallish monitors, and the setup we have in Evernote. The new editor still has giant ass margins and no way to change that. Also, please notice that in the note I have selected, there is extra spacing before and after a table. This note was not modified after the update Before Update: After Update:
  10. +1. Maybe even a preset anchor that's on all notes that scrolls to the bottom. #bottom.
  11. Let's hope they listen. I hate to be a pesimist, but so many companies don't listen once they've grown. I updated to the new 6.6 Beta 2, and went back to the public release simply because of the margin on the sides. In Word, I can adjust the margins. In Evernote, I couldn't, so I downgraded. I have given my employees small wall mounted monitors to see projects, tasks, and write ups in Evernote. The added margin is too much. Let us change it. Someone said the same thing in January of this year about the web interface. Makes me think this isn't going to be looked at seriously. https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/95688-like-to-go-back-to-old-webinterface/?do=findComment&comment=452033
