  1. DEVONthink has a dedicated Evernote import feature, so transferring files is as simple as selecting a notebook and importing the notes. Tags and annotations are transferred to DEVONthink intact along with a bookmark to the original Evernote note, just in case. However, this feature only works with Evernote 7.x and won't work with Evernote 10 (where have we heard that before?). I've found the DEVONthink manual easy to follow and a friendly online community forum ready to answer questions. So far, I have encountered no problems and I'm happy with the results. My main issue for me is
  2. I feel a little guilty posting about alternative solutions on an Evernote forum but suspect there are other users who, like me, have joined the Preview and Beta programmes and contributed feedback but are disappointed with the recent releases. I've also been frustrated at what appears to be a rush to release the new versions before they're ready. We've lost a lot of basic functionality and it's often felt like a losing battle trying to maintain a relatively simple workflow. Personally, after 12 years, I've cancelled my Evernote subscription and switched to DEVONthink. It took a couple of
  3. Hi, thanks for your reply. It's good to know Classic links will be reinstated. Existing links do work, as you say, but not in the same way. Previously, clicking an evernote:// link would open that note in a new window, which was ideal. Now, focus moves to the current note in Evernote, losing focus on the note currently selected. If the Evernote window is full-screen, it's necessary to go and find it. It's a different behaviour and whilst it's not a huge deal, it's another example of something that previously worked simply and effectively is now a lot more awkward. It is possible to c
  4. I've participated in the Preview and the Beta programmes for this release. I've noted bugs when I've seen them, responded to the feedback questionnaires and posted observations to the Preview and Beta forums. I'm really surprised to see this release go live when the most recent beta didn't seem nearly ready. It feels as if this release has been rushed rather too rapidly. Perhaps to catch up with the iOS release? It doesn't even feel like a robust Beta, let alone a full release. I appreciate this is a "journey" and improvements can still be made, etc. etc. but shouldn't the app at least
  5. I have been a part of the Preview and the Beta programmes. Like many others, I've spent time offering feedback and making suggestions, often for what seem to be really obvious functionality or design considerations. I'm really surprised to see this release because it didn't seem that the last beta release was anywhere close to being ready. I guess my point is that you shouldn't feel frustrated at not being able to influence Evernote's "evolution" as it doesn't seem as if being in the beta programme really made any difference.
  6. I often travel to regions without internet access. Previously, I could be confident that I'd have access to my notes. That's a pretty basic requirement in a note-taking app. If the option to download all notebooks exists, I guess it really ought to work reliably. This thread contains some useful suggestions for how to get around this broken functionality but I don't think well-designed apps demand users find 'workarounds' to access their data. I've been an Evernote user, supporter and advocate for 12 years. Looking at this iOS release and the desktop Beta, I suspect that's about
  7. Recent response from Evernote Support regarding this issue: "I've checked with our developers, we are currently aware of this issue. Here is the workaround: Select one notebook at a time in Evernote Settings > Notebooks > Offline notebooks Open iOS Settings > Display and Brightness > Auto-Lock > press Never Plug the iPhone or iPad to a power source Leave your phone plugged with Evernote open for a few hours Repeat with more notebooks." For users with more than a handful of notebooks, it's not really a solution and I don't think new notes ar
  8. I'm guessing that staff read the forum as I sometimes see replies. It would be helpful to hear news about this issue. Currently, Evernote on iOS is not downloading notes for offline viewing. This makes it unusable without an internet connection. I'm increasingly frustrated that using Evernote seems to demand an ongoing battle to retain basic functionality. I understand that development can sometimes be a case of one step back and two forward but it's disappointing when the most basic functions cease to work. The absence of news and updates only makes that sense of disappointment
  9. I'm wondering if there's been any progress or update with this issue. I've downloaded the latest iOS release today but offline notebooks are still not updating. Having access to notes offline is crucial for me. Currently, Evernote is acting only as a web client, which makes it redundant for my purposes. Any news or an estimate of when this will be fixed?
  10. Please bring Atlas back. It was an essential ingredient that set Evernote apart from other, similar apps. I cannot understand the logic that dictated removing it. Such a simple but highly effective tool.
  11. Yes, please replace the Atlas feature. As another photographer who uses Evernote to geotag notes about specific locations, this was a critical part of my workflow. At the very least, allow geotagged notes to link to Google Maps. The location information is already stored, creating a simple link should be straightforward. Although why remove it in the first place? That's hard to understand.
