  1. Scrivener has a nice feature where you can split one document into two separate documents. I'd like something similar on EN So if I had note like this: ======================= Poems I never saw a purple cow I never hope to see one But I can tell you anyhow I'd rather see than be one I am like a fish in love with a bird Wishing I could fly ===================== I could put the cursor in between the two poems and then right click/long press and chose split. I'd end up with two notes
  2. First, the positive news. It used to take v10 30 seconds to open, it's now down to about 10 seconds, sometimes as low as 5 seconds. I can just about live with that. The trouble is that once open, it still doesn't work properly. It can't find all tagged notes, syncing is erratic. Am I going to stop using Evernote? No. I use EN on multiple platforms, the move to consistency was a priority for me, I love the new features and the direction things are going. I am unreasonably happy about the Linux Beta. Do I recommend EN to others? Yes. But can I recommend the Android app? No. It's not so much how slowly it runs, though that's frustrating, it's the fact that it's simply not reliable. I've been caught out too many times in meetings looking at a list of three tagged notes when I was expecting ten. But it's getting better...
  3. I think @qofmiwok Puts it best And now you will have to be at a "professional" level to use boolean search? It's an insult. You want to give higher features to higher plans, make it actual features like calendaring, tasks, etc. But searchability of your product is sacred and should be in the most basic of plans, or there is no value to having Evernote.
  4. Hmmm. Given that I quoted the advanced search syntax document and that I am commenting on Boolean searches it would be reasonable to assume I know the above.
  5. Actually, I was quoting Evernote's own help page: https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/208313828-How-to-use-Evernote-s-advanced-search-syntax Here's the section Boolean search This feature requires a Professional or Teams subscription. Boolean search uses operators that can combine or exclude certain terms in a search query. In Evernote, you can search using the operators AND, OR, NOT, and ( ). Below are a few examples. Objective Boolean search query Find notes with the words dog and cat Dog AND Cat Find notes with the word dog that do not have the word cat Dog NOT Cat Find notes with the word dog or cat Dog OR Cat Advanced search query Party AND City AND (balloons OR masks) (dog OR cat) AND (mouse OR rabbit)
  6. EN did without a lot of things for the past decade that I would consider pretty essential. The massive rebuild over the past two years is evidence that they think the same. Find notes with the words dog and cat = a higher subscription? That's ridiculous.
  7. Precisely. Boolean attributes are essential. There is no reason for charging extra for a feature that should be standard.
  8. Boolean search should not be on the professional tier.
  9. Actually, I might have spoken too soon. Looks like -tag is still included in the premium/personal plan
  10. Ah, I wonder if the problem is that -tag now comes under the professional subscription? I'd feel rather cheated if I now have to pay extra to continue using a feature I've relied on for years...
  11. I have the same problem too. I find that restarting the phone helps it find more tags. Acually, I don't think it's just tags. It seems to have trouble finding and displaying notes when the phone has been on for a while
