  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
  16. Thanks for this. I'm a bit confused though: are you talking about just ADDING a PDF to an already created text note, for example? How do you do that in Evernote on iOS? I can add a PDF to the database AS a note at any time, even by just emailing into Evernote (or, apparently, Notejoy). And I can add a PDF to an already created note in Evernote on the Mac or the PC, as they both deal in "files". But iOS doesn't really do the files thing much at all - so I'm not sure how you'd add a PDF to a pre-existing note? Would be delighted to learn how to do that on my iPhone or iPad. The storage
  17. The CEO has said it will be within a month, the sooner the better. I got the impression that they are very keen to step into the Evernote breech, so it's in their own interest to get that function up and running a.s.a.p.
  18. Haven't tried that, as I'm still on the free version. OCR is a feature of all the paid plans (even the cheapest at $4/month), allowing search inside PDFs, images, etc. If anyone tries it before I do, I'd love to hear how quickly it works. With Evernote, it's not unusual to have to wait until anything from a couple of hours up to the next day for OCR to happen server-side. Would love to know how long it takes with Notejoy.
  19. I don't think it does - yet. But they seem VERY keen to cooperate with user requests, and also to plug the gap left by Evernote's backwards moves, so I suspect if you want them to look at that, I think you go to "Feature Requests" or something like that and ask for it in there. I'm now at the point where I'm ready to move from the free version of Notejoy to a paid plan. I'm very impressed with both the apps and also the company. The comparison of attitudes between Evernote and Notejoy towards users is a stark contrast.
  20. I'll look into that - I just got the link from the pop-up menu at bottom left of my copy of Notejoy, where it says Refer Notejoy or something like that. There's a button to copy the link, and that was it. If there IS some sort of referral reward, I'll declare it.
  21. For those, like me, who have become disgruntled Evernoters (in my case, Premium since mid-2008), and who have been sorely disappointed with these latest "upgrades" to v10 on all platforms, I've been searching for a suitable alternative. I've been looking for something that does what Evernote has traditionally done well - act as a brain/memory extension. I've played with Notion, DevonThink, OneNote, Apple Notes, Roam Research, and a few others. None of these quite fits the bill as a close Evernote replacement, either on my Macs, on my work Win10 PC, my iPad, or my iPhone. In each of t

  23. Thanks for the suggestions - appreciated. I'm currently trying DevonThink, Apple Notes, and Notion. But today I came across one I'd not heard of, and it looks very promising. It's called Notejoy. It does do offline notes on the Mac and Windows, but not yet on mobile devices (I need them there too) - but that is coming. Of the ones I'm trying, so far, Notejoy is looking the most appealing. https://notejoy.com/ and https://notejoy.com/features
  24. I have Notion installed, and have imported my Evernote database to it. But I'm trying to run the two in parallel until I'm confident in Notion before severing the Evernote umbilical cord. My Mac EN is v7.14 - not upgrading what works - but my iOS versions upgraded automatically, and are screwed as per the previous posters on this thread. However, Notion does NOT support local or offline notebooks, and I frequently do NOT have an Internet connection, so absolutely need to have those notes stored locally on my devices (all of which have loads of space on them). Also, no email forwardi
  25. I take "Save data at logout" to mean exactly that - it saves the data to the Evernote servers when you log out. However, I suspect what the OP may be referring to is Offline notebooks. When he talks about "entire database downloaded locally", I'm assuming he's talking about all notebooks downloading onto the local device so that it can be used offline. I'm not on the new version - I'm sticking with v7.14 - but I gather that offline notebooks ARE still supported, but LOCAL notebooks aren't supported any more. I find that very confusing, but from what I've been able to work out, offline
