  1. Before v10, after scanning a document, we had the option of selecting "photo" to save that document as a full photo if desired. But in v10, when we choose "photo," instead of seeing the full photo, I'm being presented with a cropped version of the photo, which isn't helpful. Furthermore, it seems the only workaround for this is a new option when beginning a scan: We're now asked to select either "auto" or "photo"—which is ironic because the previous procedure was in fact automatic! Now, if we don't care for the way the scan looks, we have to delete the scan, choose "photo" and scan the do
  2. I've made this observation in other posts about individual features, but this is clearly now a recurring theme in v10: Every action I attempt now takes *more taps* to complete than it took before. Every. Single. One. The following is by no means intended to be an exhaustive list; just some examples off the top of my head: Creating a new note Naming a new note Selecting the type of new note to be created Scanning a document (the thumbnail of which later fails to appear, and the interface of which is very "blinky" and erratic) Completing a note and returning to
  3. I love updates and new features. I often run beta versions of various apps (but wasn't aware of a beta cycle for v10, if it existed). That said, Evernote 10 is an utter disaster. Feature after feature after feature is either broken or missing. Not obscure features, MAJOR features. Too many to list. (I've posted a few in other threads. I'm a paying user, and this is one of the worst updates of any app in recent memory. Many of us have reported numerous bugs that went unfixed for years. (Literally.) Instead of fixing bugs, you devoted resources to creating this massive update—which is
  4. I've used it for years. Copy some text (or whatever), then hit ⌃⌘V. Evernote is launched, and a new note is created with the contents of the clipboard. Well, in 10.1.7, Evernote launches, but no new note is created, and nothing is pasted. (Incidentally, this and other shortcuts were customizable in one of the tabs of Evernote's preferences—but v10 has NO preferences at all, which is weird and disconcerting. How else are we to specify these and other other settings?)
  5. I wants my notes in Helvetica Neue, as they've been for years. Why would you take away custom fonts and force us to use fonts you've preselected? What's the downside of letting us use whatever fonts we want? I'm not against updates. I like new features! I like fresh design! But so far, all this "update" seems to do is (a) take away features we've used (b) make it harder to do things we've done for years. (Or in the case of iOS, requiring additional taps to do what we used to do with fewer taps.) Taking away features is NOT an upgrade. This is getting more and more disappointing.
  6. When I create a new note, I want to start with the title, not the body. That's how it's been for years. Why would you change this? If you believe some users want this new behavior, please, please make this a preference we can specify. (Speaking of which, what happened to preferences? Now there's no centralized place for settings? WTH?)
  7. In the previous iOS version, when we were finished creating a new note, we could simply hit the back arrow to simultaneously save the note and return to the note list. (Otherwise, the note was automatically saved without an explicit "save" action.) Now, there's a green checkmark that saves the note—but we aren't then returned to the note list. After saving, an arrow appears, and a 2nd tap is now required to return to the note. While it's just one extra tap, that's one extra tap per note—and when creating many notes, that's now twice the work. This is questionable design. When notes a
  8. In the past, the iOS app always respected the orientation of the camera when the photo was taken. After rotating the phone, I always watched for Evernote's icons to rotate to match the phone to make sure that photos had the correct orientation. As a result, the image would be properly oriented in the new note. But that's now broken. In the new version, after rotating my iPhone to landscape orientation and taking a photo, the note is created with the photo improperly rotated. Yes, there's now a rotation button, but if the app is behaving properly in the first place, we shouldn't need
  9. All new notes containing newly scanned documents have generic icons instead of image previews. I rely upon these preview images, so this is extremely frustrating.
  10. I'm talking about the button to the right that displays a menu of the different types of notes. It sometimes doesn't respond. iPhone XS Max, iOS 14 (always up to date)
  11. Please don't tell other people what to bump and what not to bump. And please don't make generalized assumptions about what issues or features other people care about. There are numerous issues that many of us continue to care deeply about. But since the Evernote team ignores the majority of our requests and bug reports, some of us have simply grown tired of posting about them since our posts appear to fall upon deaf ears. Rest assured: Presentation mode remains a MAJOR annoyance.
  12. It seems you each missed this part of my post: "Furthermore, since as a last resort I literally copied the full contents of the note, pasted them into an email, and sent the email to each recipient with no problems, this proves that there's nothing inherent about the note's content that prevents it from being emailed." If Mail.app can email the contents of that note—and the recipients' servers did NOT complain—why can't Evernote?
  13. Thanks. Please see the update I just posted.
  14. UPDATE: The note I was attempting to email (that resulted in the error messages) contained a combination of text and ~65 images, totaling ~25MB. I've since determined that smaller notes do in fact email successfully, so there's something about emailing this larger message that is causing the errors. I have not determined a particular threshold at which the emailing of notes begins to fail, but clearly the wording of the error message that we're sent—particularly the suggestion that email addresses may be incorrect—is problematic. Furthermore, since as a last resort I literally c
