  1. Over the last couple of months I have been checking this forum pretty much every day for news of updates, new features, old features restored etc. I don't post very often but appreciate all those who take the time to contribute. Thank you for your insights. I have over 15,000 notes in Evernote and it pretty much stores all my information but I have decided I need to reduce my reliance on it. The new version still seems to be a long way off being the right tool for my workflow so I am still using 6.25. As the days go by with not much coming from Evernote about restoring a number of the key features, I am no longer confident enough in the future of the product or the company to store all my information. I actually feel quite vulnerable with my current reliance on evernote. I am gradually moving out all the important notes, documents and things I refer to on a regular basis and going back to a good old windows folder system and google drive to store and sync them. I will only use Evernote for archive items that I probably will never need again but the Evernote search is a great way to find them if I ever do. I will hang in there to see what does transpire with evernote but I will feel more comfortable with my key data stored elsewhere for the moment. Cheers SJ
  2. I note that Import Folders are on the list of coming soon. When this is up and running, I will be able to give version 10 a serious try. The two things I want from a filing system is easy to save and easy to find. To me these are the two core functions that evernote has done better than any other tool I have tried. The great search engine combined with Folders and tags looks after the easy to find bit - but I am still bewildered why they would release a upgraded product that made it more difficult to create notes? To get things into evernote I use email, web clipper and import folder extensively. My scanner goes directly to my import folder. Sometimes I even create a note in evernote itself!!! Looking forward to having a functional version 10 to try.
  3. This heading just resonates. 2008 must have been a good year because that is when I also became a premium user. I use evernote all day everyday and my 15,000 notes are critical. 2020 has been such a bad year and working paperless and from home since March has made Evernote even more critical to me. If there is no local database of notes then I will have to find another solution and I am really not looking forward to that.
  4. Will have to stick to the legacy version at the moment until this is clarified. It is the number one deal breaker for me. There is no way am I committing to keeping my 15,000 life records on a platform without a permanent local database - regardless of the functionality. The frustrating part is that I have never really found a great alternative.
  5. When I used version 10 it seemed like my notes were stored on line (hence slow) rather than the old model of syncing to my computer. Can someone confirm how this works under version 10. If this is the case, I will be ceasing using Evernote. I have espoused the evernote model for years in other areas of software as the ideal model when my notes are synced to the cloud but stored on my computer. Then I am not relying on Evernote to be able to access my notes. If they take them off me and just keep them online, then I will be finding another solution. I have managed to go back to the legacy edition for the moment.
  6. I made a mistake. I should never have let it upgrade. The new version 10 is so slow. I want to go back to version 6 but I don't know how. I tried to download but got version 10 again.
  7. I would like to be able to expand and collapse all stacks of notebooks and tags with one button or click. Is there are shortcut for this?
  8. Thanks for your help Gazumped. I will try Support. The odd thing is that I have now tried encrypting using ctrl+Shift+X and it works fine - but the menu item is still greyed out.
  9. Yes, Same process I have used for the past few years. Still not working. Cheers Stephen
  10. I seem to be having trouble encrypting text since I updated evernote to version Pre Release. The option to encrypt is greyed out on the menu.
