  1. You're right. I didn't saw this option earlier.
  2. It's seams Import folders is not available to Windows users (like me).
  3. My fear is the price continues the same, but, from night to day they decided to change the plans again, even to old customers. So, this is the reason to still looking into Notion as alternative. Today, they offer a way more cool features, but I don't know if they are stable and rock solid like Evernote. Well, at least, I have the "word" from Mr. Shane that the prices will not increase for existing users.
  4. What relief! 🙂 Ok, cancel project aborted! lol!
  5. Here in Brazil, it will cost R$ 250,00 the personal plan, charged yearly. The previous value was R$ 80,00. It's more than 200% of price increase. I will contact support staff to know more. I don't need tasks, and anything else that they offering. Just notes.
  6. Sincerely? It's time to say goodbye to Evernote. They took away a lot of useful features, with the speech that "we need to take a step back to get the momentum to move faster", but all the more interesting features I need haven't come back yet and we don't even know when they will be implemented, even later 1 year of implementing the most buggy version of Evernote in its history. And now, they are launching new plans, costing exaggeratedly more expensive than ever, with fewer features and a buggy version? Good luck to those who stay, now I'm definitely moving to Notion, which has a lot of features that don't exist in Evernote. For encrypted notes, I will migrate to some password manager like Lastpass or Roboform. Keep suffering and paying more doesn't appears to me a intelligent choice. MarcSant.
  7. Just don't forget that Legacy version is 32bit only (at least for Windows), and for some huge notes, all users that need to use this version will be impacted. To not harm the users they should provide the 64 Version of it, at least.
  8. I got another answer from Tech Support: " Jeffrey B. (Evernote Help and Learning) Oct 13, 2020, 19:41 PDT Hello Marcelo, Thank you for your reply. We understand your frustration regarding these missing features. We haven’t yet built this feature into the new Evernote app. These features are on our to-do list and we plan on building it soon. We thank you for your understanding and patience. Let me know if there is anything else you need. We are here to help. Regards, Jeffrey B. Customer Support Representative Marcelo Santos Oct 13, 2020, 4:47 PDT “You can still use the Legacy version of Evernote in the future. However, we recommend that you update to and use the newest version of Evernote to get the latest features and ensure that you have the most recent bug fixes, security fixes, and performance improvements.” How I can use the newest version since it lack’s core features that I use as daily basis? - There is no way to change the color of lateral toolbar from Dark. - There is no way to put shortcuts list in the top of screen. It will not move anymore - There are only FIVE Fonts. For me that store computer code in the notes, it is A TERRIBLE choice - I can't change the Interface Language. I like to use English Interface, since I can have a lot of info in foruns instead to get translated the Brazilian version to English one. - I can't create a Notebook inside the Notebook stack as I always did. You need to first create the Notebook, then move it to stack - I can't grab a screen capture anymore - I can't Paste text directly to Evernote note (CTRL+shitf+V) anymore - I can't import a folder anymore - I can't un-stack a Notebook from a stack using right click mouse. I need to drag an drop them. - I can't narrow a search inside a specific Notebook or Notebook Stack The newest version have this features? If yes, please show me. If not, I stick with legacy version until my migration plan is in course. After that, I will cease to use Evernote and hope you all good luck with this sinking ship. Att, ----- Marcelo Santos" So, honestly, I give up. I don't know all you, but this time is enough for me.
  9. At least in my point of view, they are unifying the product to have a single development team, reducing costs by allowing the Windows team to have the same development base for Apple. This forces them to remove features that are highly dependent on the operating system, such as sending a note via email, changing the font to a list larger than just 5, among other things. What they did was: "we will implement a multi-platform version, release it with what we could provide for both ecosystems, and over time we will implement back what we removed." From a business point of view, it makes sense because you save money and focus in one direction only, with shorter development cycles. But the problem is that they haven't thought about users at all: they've launched the new product and damn what the user thinks. They could have minimized all this stress by sending an email to all users talking about the new version, and in this email putting the link to the Legacy version in case the user didn't feel comfortable with the changes. I live here in Brazil, I have always praised and spoken well of American Technology companies, how serious they are, competent and how they produce excellent systems and products that help our lives, but this time, sincerely gave me shame about what they did. It was very, very amateurish. I would expect this kind of posture from a backyard company, a beginner, which has a bunch of teenage nerds starting now, but, honestly, the role is inverted: The teenage nerds are producing each time more great products, creating applications that are innovating and changing the life of many people, and contrary to what I said, they don't take these decisions that irritate so many people in such a short time. I think the company's board needs to look to this, it needs to look to what is happening, it is not just a bunch of angry people with a new function or new resource but essential functions that makes the product viable for the users. Evernote as a company can't just believe that because we depend on them we won't migrate to another platform, we can and will do it! 15 years ago there wasn't alternative, today we have, and to have alternatives means that your product can't give margin for error. And this last change was a grotesque mistake, which is leading to a huge base of paying users to rethink Evernote as a loyal note companion.
  10. Yeah. At least, some support manager will be get promotion bonuses when their support team will be handle more than 100% increase support tickets in the next few weeks!
  11.

We can't stay just posting our problems and frustration here. We need to reach the company, the board, or someone else that can hear us, and provide a road map of features that we missed and when these will be implemented in the new 10 version. Suggestions?

  13. The answer I got from representative support: "Hello there Marcelo, Thank you for taking the time to reach out to Evernote Customer Support. This is Jeffrey, and I'll be assisting you today. I understand you'd like to go back to using the older version of Evernote. While we encourage everyone to give the new Evernote app a try, we recognize that there are some scenarios where using an older version is necessary or desired. You can download the Evernote Legacy app by following the instructions in this Help & Learning article: Install an older version of Evernote. If you run into any trouble, I'd be happy to help troubleshoot with you so you can get back to being productive with Evernote. Thank you for your patience and understanding. If you have any other questions or clarifications, feel free to reply to this email. We will do our best to assist you. Kind Regards, Jeffrey B. Customer Support Representative" So, for those are not happy with the new 10 version, there only 2 possible options: - Stick with legacy version - Switch to another product.
  14. Yeah, me too. I spoke about Evernote to almost all my work fellows and colleagues and now I was really disappointed. The ticket that I opened in the support was answered today, and the only path that tech support guy instructed my is "Use the Legacy Version". I'm pretty sure that I know which direction the company is aiming at with the product, and for me, it's enough. I'm planning to invest my effort to Notion, and leave Evernote and wishes good luck.
  15. In the End User License agreement, probably have some obscure clause that protects Evernote company from Lawsuits like this. But, we can do more if we make a coordinate social media buzz. Contact CNN? Or another important tech channel? They need to be know that we are all pissed off. At least, I'm in the right moment. How irritating it can be since I'm here in the middle of Sunday thinking about how to migrate my data to another service, instead to playing a video game or playing with my kids?
