  1. Ah, might this - https://evernote.com/blog/see-evernote-like-never-before-with-home/ - explain what to me was such an infuriating and perplexing removal of the hide-note-pane option that totally broke the way I used Evernote? I am still using the previous version of EN simply because of the loss of this option. If this new Home dashboard can be configured such that the only widget on it is a list of all selected notes (via search, tags etc - or all notes if no selection criteria are in place) then that essentially reverts to the legacy setup I am running at the moment so long as whenever I click on a note in the notes widget it opens it in a new window leaving the EN main window still displaying the Home dashboard. In fact this new Home dashboard is probably better than the simple hide-note-pane legacy option because it would give me the ability to have one widget at the very top with a few of my most used notes (e.g. I have a note called "*SCRATCHPAD*" if I want to very quickly jot down someone's number, essentially a virtual PostIt note) and then have my main notes list using the other 90% of the Home display. (I see that EN has explicitly created a "Scratchpad" widget so I would probably use that as a replacement for my "*SCRATCHPAD*" note depending on how the Home functionality transfers to the iPhone and iPad versions.) If Home can be configured as I hope then that would resolve my concern and get me to switch from the legacy to the latest version. From reading that blog post I'm not sure if the Notes widget can actually display all or selected notes, they only talk about "recent" and "suggested", but if the direction of travel is enhancements to Home then I will certainly be trying out this new feature to see if it gets me close to, totally back to, or maybe even slightly beyond the legacy version in terms of what I consider a clean and efficient screen layout. I do note however that the blog post says that "If you’re an Evernote Premium or Business customer, you can resize, reorder, or remove widgets to customize your Home" which I assume means non-premium users can't. I'm a premium user so that isn't a concern for me but as a community-minded person it would still feel very wrong to me that Evernote has worsened the user interface for non-premium users who use EN as I do and won't, as far as I can see from reading the blog post, have the possibility of configuring Home to reproduce the previous note-pane-hidden appearance so although I might have an escape route on this one I'm still left a bit perplexed as to why EN removed such a basic option.
  2. I'm running Evernote on Windows 10 Pro for Workstations. Whichever of the three options I select for "View/Dark Mode" ("Use System Setting", "Dark Mode" or "Light Mode") the sidebar at the left is always white text on what appears to be a jet black background. Is this really how it is supposed to work? I would have thought that setting it to light mode would not still have used a jet-black side bar.
  3. Sadly I have v10 installed and can't 100% remember what the option was called but I previously had Evernote on my Windows 10 PC set up so that the main window only had 2 panes, the sidebar and the middle pane where you can select to see the note cards and I had the option set to disable the rightmost pane that shows the content of the currently selected note. I think that option might have been something like "Show note contents (or preview?) pane" or something like that and it was probably under the "View" menu in the previous release but I can't find it anywhere now. If I wanted to see the contents of a note on my previous configuration I simply double-clicked on a note card or hit new-note to pop up a new window for the note. Now all that the rightmost pane does for me is waste screen space and make my main Evernote window look cluttered. You offered the option to hide the note preview (rightmost) pane in the previous version so please, please (pretty please) implement that option in this latest version.
  4. Your help page is a bit unclear and confusing about what is supported. I'm talking about the page here, in particular section 2... https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/209125827 At time of writing it says about the different clip types... Article - No mention of any specific browsers so assume this works in Edge Simplified Article - Explicitly lists various browsers. The list does not include Edge so assume this doesn't currently work in Edge? Full Page - No mention of any specific browsers so assume this works in Edge Bookmark - Explicitly lists various browsers. The list does not include Edge so assume this doesn't currently work in Edge? Screenshot - Explicitly lists various browsers. The list does not include Edge so assume this doesn't currently work in Edge? PDF - Doesn't list individual browsers but has a message explicitly stating that this type isn't currently supported in Edge so that's clear Selection - No mention of any specific browsers so assume this works in Edge Custom clips - No mention of any specific browsers so assume this works in Edge I'm hoping my assumption is correct in that, for the types where you don't mention any list of specific browsers, that means it works with all of them including Edge. It is Simplified Article, Bookmark and Screenshot that are particular confusing when taken together with the description for the PDF clip type. The first three don't list Edge as a supported browser so that's worrying, but then again they don't have the explicit Edge-not-currently-supported message that the PDF clip type has so is that all OK then and for the first three it's just a case of someone not updating the previous list of browsers in the help text? I'd appreciate some definite clarification on just what types are supported in Edge at the moment and also suggest that you do some re-wording of that section of the help page to remove the potential confusion over some of the items.
  5. Thanks. I was just curious really. When I first came to EN one of my big issues was some way to implement a proper multi-level hierarchy but I've come up with a new way of organising my data that works for me and removes my need for anything more than a single level tag space so I don't think that I'll even use the single level of stacking when it comes to Windows and iDevices. As jna said though, the fact that "foobar" can't appear under both "foo" and "bar" makes it ugly to implement a proper tag hierarchy even though it is technically possible. The user is left having to disambiguate any tag names that they want to have appear in multiple places in the hierarchy, e.g. "foobar_foo" and "foobar_bar" and the more levels then the worse it can get, e.g. a tag of the form ___ which soon gets very ugly. Allowing the same tag name to appear in multiple places in the tag tree in the UI would be a big step forward. That still leaves people to make sure that, if they tag a note with "foobar", then they also remember to add either the "foo" or the "bar" tag (and any tags for levels in the hierarchy above that) to give the "foobar" tag its full path/context in the hierarchy but at least that's cleaner than forcing tags to be full pathnames as described above. Luckily this isn't an issue for me anymore but I do feel some sympathy for others that still want a full hierarchy. - Julian
  6. Is it possible for a notebook stack to have another stack within it, i.e. is this a single level folder hierarchy or a multi-level structure? - Julian
