  1. I suspect that every complaint in this entire thread is due to the new versions of Evernote being written in Electron. I've tried alternatives, like Notejoy, Nimbus Note, but they're also written in Electron, and are not really any snappier than Evernote. So I'm sticking with v7.14 on the Mac, and ignoring the reminder blurbs that keep popping up telling me it's time to upgrade. No way...! It's just a pity that there is no downgrade pathway for iOS on my iPhone or iPad - those new versions are terrible, too, especially the clipper! And to think that while we had v7.14 on the Mac a
  2. Jut to clarify a point, though - previous versions of Evernote did NOT require us to open EN in order to "receive" the share. I have done it for years, particularly from Flipboard, and the share went straight from Flipboard to Evernote in the background. I've never had to open Evernote on the iPad or iPhone to "receive" the share first. When I opened EN the next time, all the shares from Flipboard were already there, and if it was a period of time before I actually opened EN, it had already synced to the EN servers in the background. My question is - why can't it go straight to EN from
  3. I don't care how many or how few "Likes" I get - I don't count or take notice of them. My point is that after several months, as a paying Premium customer for the past 12 years, I still have iOS versions of Evernote that have flaws, missing functions, slow syncing, scrambled web page clipping, multiple steps to clip where we had a simple and working Clipper previously, etc etc. I'm back on v7.14 on my Macs, and have unchecked all updating. But my iOS versions autoupdated before I became aware of all the faults and missing features. I called for replacement of v10 with previously working ve
  4. The iOS Share Clipper used to work. It was slow, but it worked. It would transfer the whole page, etc as required. It would also automatically create a title, let you set tags, and would also send the source URL. It would sync it to Evernote directly. Slow, but reliable. Fine tuning could be done on the Mac or PC if needed. Now - it is hopeless. It has become a laborious multi-step process. Clip an article and you get a message saying it will be synced next time you open Evernote on this device. So you then have to leave what you're doing and open Evernote, whereupon it then takes
  5. I'm sitting back, using my v7.14 Mac version of Evernote Premium which I managed to block from updating on two Macs and a Macbook Pro. I'm reading the continuing stream of complaints about v10 on all platforms (I have v10 on my iPhone and iPad unfortunately) and this has been going on now for months. Yet STILL version 10 is broken. It is missing features and functions that are present and working perfectly in v7.14. So once again, I have to ask the question: WHY does Evernote not just admit that they screwed up, pull ALL version 10s from all sources (App Store, web site, etc) and repla
  6. Thanks for the workaround - appreciated. Now for the tricky bit - trying to teach my wife to do that without have an iPad hurled across the room and my ears turned blue with the language
  7. Lucky that you're finding the iOS version 10 at least usable. But on my iPad - and my wife's iPad, who only uses an iPad, not a computer at all - the iOS v10 is unusable. One thing she does is clip recipes from numerous sources to Evernote. But the Share Sheet clipper just doesn't work, it doesn't put a title in, and it completely screws up the harvesting of the various source sites due to all these newer scripted web pages with slide-overs, multiframe pages, and of course, the Pinterest pages. I have to put up with her vitriol every time she tries to use Evernote, with which she has b
  8. For all those who keep suggesting reverting to the Legacy version of Evernote, with good intentions - you're forgetting that one of the main attractions of EN has always been its cross-platform sync abilities. But the new iOS versions are atrocious. Terrible. Unusable. But THERE IS NO LEGACY PATHWAY FOR iOS USERS...! Evernote needs to pull the new versions from the App Store and work on them to get them actually ready for prime time. And they need to replace the App Store versions with the previous versions that DID work nicely, including the Share Sheet clipper. Come on Team Ever
  9. I suspect you are in the minority, using my missus as an example of someone who only uses the very basic functions of Evernote - and she hates the new version with a passion. Can't use a Legacy version with iOS - there isn't one. I'm back on v7.14 on the Mac, but my iOS versions are the new ones (iPhone, iPad) and I can't use them. I work in an environment where there is no Internet connection, and I have always relied on Evernote's ability to download notes to be available offline. Now I can't get my notes offline. As originally posted - at what point do Evernote accept they've
  10. Thanks for moving my rant to a more appropriate place. Although a lot of people stick to the more specific forums, eg Mac, Windows, iOS, etc. A lot of people don't use computers these days - they stick to something like an iPad, and the iOS version still doesn't work. The share sheet doesn't work, downloading offline notes isn't working for many, PDFs continue to be a problem, and the list goes on. You only have to read the iOS Technical Issues forum to see the problems. My wife, for example, has possibly the most simple usage of Evernote - she stores recipes in there. Thousands of th
  11. The ongoing disaster that is Evernote v10 on all platforms is what will bring Evernote, the company, down. Ian Small needs to step up to the plate, take responsibility, pull all version 10s of Evernote off the markets, and restore the previous versions. And he needs to do it NOW...! We are seeing large numbers of long time Evernote users deserting the platform, moving to Notion, Bear, Apple Notes, Notejoy, and others. Of those who are persisting with Evernote, we are seeing massive frustration, disappointment, data loss, and anger. Evernote has lost many of its good features,
  12. Did they actually HAVE a beta? So far, all the v10 releases haven't even been at alpha stage...!!!!
  13. Don't forget removal of Preferences/Settings, WebClipper now doesn't create a title or tags, and many, many more deficiencies. They've removed things that DID work, changed some of them for things that now DON'T work, and generally made a dog's breakfast out of what used to be a great series of apps on all its platforms. What a load of rubbish - how much is CEO Ian Small responsible for this? Did he play an active role in defining the changes? Or did he just listen to software engineers who probably don't even use Evernote, telling him that it needed to be rebuilt from the ground u
  14. If you read the post, it says that "my devices (IOS 14) are configured to not upgrade automatically!!! " So it was either the backup that wasn't as far back as thought and already included the new Evernote, or somehow the update got pushed despite the iOS update settings. I suspect the former...
  15. Thanks for that. But drag and drop from where? Are you talking about using the "File Explorer" thing on the iPad, perhaps with Evernote in a split screen? I never use split screen or the File Explorer thing on the iPad, so I've never done that. I do any major manipulation of notes, or editing, on my computer, then sync. With v10, and no drag-and-drop, where do you point the program to when you tap the "Attachment" button? PDFs don't "exist" as a separate entity on iOS do they? Or do you have to go into, eg Dropbox, or Documents app, for example, to find them first? I've never though
