  1. When I type in the search box suggestions are somewhat sluggish. I am used to getting instant results. I think it has to do with the fact that the new app is actually a web app in a wrapper and there is an intentional delay between every key strokes. It makes sense for a web app since every key stroke is a cost to Evernote backend but offline it makes no sense at all. I have a fully spec'ed macbook pro 2019. Compute is not a problem I have also created the following Alfred 4 workflow (powerpack upgrade required) with this apple script to open the search box automatically when called tell application "Evernote" -- Bring app to the front, starting it if necessary activate end tell -- Simulate CMD+CTRL+F --tell application "System Events" to keystroke "f" using {control down, down option} tell application "System Events" delay 0.3 keystroke "f" using {option down, command down} keystroke "a" using {command down} end tell Its a shame tabs are now gone
  2. Hi all, is there a quick find function in the new version? It was cmd-j before I think. I am using alt-ctrl-f but the search is very slow. I am wondering if there is another way of quickly finding notes. Also, has anyone been able to get multiple tabs working somehow ? Thanks
  3. Yep but the Evernote UI does not support easily linking notes. Even the new beta UI does not. Its takes quite a few clicks to link pages. Its almost not worth it. There is no UI elements for hashtags. Evernote is document level. Roam research is block level with version control, and allows you to generate a concept map from your notes. Like what https://www.thebrain.com/ does, but in a less clunky way
  4. Just came across this service that allows to create link different notes roamresearch.com The service offers a better way of organising information
  5. Ping support again I would say. These betas are always limited in numbers because engineers have to support users, which slows down the actual public release
  6. Evernote needs a better customer engagement model too. I have about 6k note and assumed that everyone in the program would have been extended an invite see if this TestFlight link works for you. It may not be individual. I would click this cautiously since there is probably a backend flag that needs to be enabled for the new UI to work on your account https://testflight.apple.com/v1/invite/c26c88c49aa44b31b265edbb7b369db5a05042ff946e49f084a5678bdcb098ad10cbde0c?ct=Evernote&advp=10000&platform=ios
  7. I am glad it helped :) in a unqualified estimate, I think we are still some months away from a public release. The beta is a rewrite of the UI. Having said that anyone can participate in a beta program if you are willing to take the risk of the app crashing and features not working at all
  8. hi folks I have just tried the new beta v10 on iphone and the loading issue seems to be gone. I have not used it in anger yet. The beta is buggy but overall its mostly usable. The new editor looks snappier and now has an edit button, which should hopefully completely eliminate sync conflicts. Its looking good.I wish there was vector based drawing capability, but what we have seems to be good enough. Thanks to the engineering team
  9. The short answer:On the iPad use the split screen to avoid switching. The long one: My guess is the app has become too big over time and takes up too much memory. I wonder if it would help actually removing all the local notes as removing that index FROM memory. The problem is not easily fixed. IOS memory management must have changed over time. How would you go about making an app lean when all of the pieces are being used? Rewrite is expensive and time-consuming. As we all know Evernote has accumulated a lot of technical debt over the years due to mismanagement. Instead of removing they kept on adding across all of the platforms to drive sales. That can only go so long. That’s what happens when you have a sales / mba guy running a startup company. It stops being a startup and develops antibodies to innovation. The new CEO seems to get it. Evernote maintained multiple versions of the same thing across all of the platforms. There was and still is feature fragmentation. The engineering team is now paying for it and sales are going down due to competition external innovation. At some point the whole thing could implode, but I really hope it doesn’t. Evernote is an OK family of products that I hope one day becomes an awesome product once again. The native experience is still the key but users are now also demanding a web experience too. Luckily they have fixed the backend six months ago. That was really ageing based on my customer experience. There is a beta program and the fix in the works. I think the fix is somewhere between a preview and a beta
  10. Is it possible to create a tag hierarchy? How can apple script help me traverse through without having to search for the next tag?
  11. Yep. Thanks for providing the script. I hope it gets productised
  12. That’s very helpful! Thanks searching for tag_tagname1 found and even highlighted the hashtag within text. the last step is to make this a UI element to make traversing related notes easily. It’s like walking along a web in a mind map
  13. so you are saying if I include “tag_tagname1” In my note or a document I will be able to find this note when I search “tagname1” tag? Or does it just mean this gets bumped in relevancy score in search? How quickly does Evernote re-index notes?
  14. Dropbox Paper has it working brilliantly: From doco: How to use hashtags as labels for search You can make search more powerful by using hashtags in your docs. Hashtags are clickable within a doc and you can use search to find all docs within your company that contain the same hashtag. For example, type "#dogs" anywhere in your document. Then, to use this hashtag in search, type the hashtag and keyword (in this case "#dogs"). The results show all accessible docs containing that hashtag.
