  1. this is the "crapiest" version I even seen. It lost a lot of functions, core functions that made I love Evernote. But now? They trow away everything.
  2. Well, for the last 5 days I'm testing the process to import the Evernote notes into Microsoft OneNote. For those that are interested in discover the process, I will list the positive and negative points, that I discovered among this time: Pros: The OneNote importer works only with the Evernote Win32 version: the Metro version is not supported. In case of Metro Version is not available you can export the notes and import them, as the same Way. Notes format are almost the same as Evernote Original Cons: OneNote Sync Mechanism are VERY slow compared to Evernote: even with an fast and reliable internet connection the sync process to just one Notebook could take a lot of time to sync to the device. Sometimes OneNote just stop to try sync the note and you'll need to start over again, sometimes 2, 3 times depending on the Notebook size There is no oficial tool that allow you to export notes from OneNote There is no tag system like Evernote: Tags are on very preliminar version You can't sort notes inside the notebook like you do in Evernote: you can just drag them to the position that you want to. If you use an outdated OneNote version, you can install a third-party tool that make this, but these outdated versions will not receive any improvement from Microsoft since they are treated as "depreciated" products. Mobile OneNote version has the same poor sync speed. So, I'm keeping the Evernote and not shifting anymore to OneNote, so, my hope is in Evernote 7.0 version
  3. Yep! you have a huge Evernote database, that is far beyond my usage. I'm home now, and testing OneNote sync, and I will end by agreeing with many people here that OneNote is not an real competitor to Evernote. Sync problems and need to Sync again are common, even in this "fresh" version. I will do some more testing for the next days.
  4. On Android devices, you can use SwiftKey keyboard, that has Tab key. I guess there is a version for iOS too.
  5. @PinkElephant The problem relies in the poor infra-structure as a whole outside the main cities. Here in Brazil even the company paying the bill the internet sucks. In my home I got 300Mbps fiber link that really helps a lot. But, I'm afraid that the root cause is not the internet link but the poor sync algorithm that Microsoft has take in place. In the old OneNote version the file that contains your notes are stored in your PC, and is up to you place this file in a shared Cloud folder or not. Today, is totally based on cloud. Tomorrow I'll be in home and I will dig more into this. If the results are worst than Evernote I will abort the switch to avoid the pain. My hope is the version 7.0 fix the most annoying bugs, like Web Clipp in Simplified format that simply doesn't work in Chrome. Let's see!
  6. Hi buddy! I don't have a lot of notes, the total space consumed by Evernote database is around 3GB. The most of them are text notes, in a mix of SQL scripts, source code, etc. I got around 5, 6k of individual notes. Some of them (a minor) contains videos, photos and PDF files. I'm still trying OneNote, since it get a huge interface revamp, and now the free version relies 100% in the cloud: there is no (just the cache) files in your disk, so I believe that this is the reason for the very slow sync speed compared to Evernote. The tags are migrated as a annotation in your 'new' OneNote note. In the more recent migration tool the tags are not converted in a real tag in OneNote, but the note are "tagged" with a text mark in the note itself. Microsoft have been promised that the new OneNote version that will came in a near future will have tagging like Evernote, but I don't know when this will occur. But, the most absence in OneNote is the ability to sort Notebook notes. It's what's bothering me the most. The mobile (Android app) suffer from sync slowness in the same way as the Desktop does, I really don't know if this is because the hotel infrastructure that sucks (I'm away in a business travel) or the sync slowness are part of the product... In a few days I will give to you a most recent feedback, and sorry for my poor english... 😉
  7. Yeah... I agree with you: they are completely different approach to how store notes. Evernote until now is more advanced in terms of searching and sync mechanism is way better than OneNote, but, I'm trying to end the pain to some minor annoying bugs that was never solved. For exemple, yesterday I tried to logon in my Evernote account and two way factor was unable to recognize the code I put using the Google Auth software. I request a code by SMS. No response. I tried to use the backup codes. Either no response. Today, almost 12 hours later I received the dammit SMS code. So, I guess some issues in the 'authentication servers' could be the reason to delay the logon request and send the SMS to me. But, OneNote is not perfect: the sync times are way slow (a lot slow) compared to Evernote, and this is why I will give a last chance to version 7.
  8. I'm migrating all my content to Microsoft OneNote. There is an importer tool (Windows) that migrate all your notes in one single operation. To do that, you need the Evernote Classic Windows Desktop Version installed. And, OneNote had a very great web clipper tool, that just WORKS and capture almost everything that I need. I have a Evernote account almost from 10 years (since 2009), and I really feel that the company is somewhat lost: the most annoying bugs that drives me crazy are forgotten and the developers seems to unable to fix them. A SINGLE web clipper issue that is almost SEVEN FUC@!*&&*¨# MONTHS are open without solution till now. It's appears that they are giving a sh*&#@t to users problems. It's really sad that in the past years Evernote has been my loved app, and now days I really don't recommend it to anyone. I'll give the version 7.0 a shot, but meantime I'm migrating all my notes to OneNote, and starting using it even the 7.0 comes to our aid and save us, but, to be honest, I don't believe in miracles, and this should be a miracle to force me to continue using Evernote.
