  1. The Secret Weapon set up https://thesecretweapon.org/the-secret-weapon-manifesto/setting-up-the-secret-weapon/amp/ uses GTD and Evernote tags to create a system that I have used with minor tweaks since 2015. worth looking at.
  2. I am getting slow loading issues - 23 seconds to open app. Caches cleared, tried reinstalling didn’t improve things.
  3. I really DO like the home feature, but my frustration is the time it takes to open in Android now. I have circa 2500 notes, so not massive, and am running on a Samsung J6+ which isn't high end but is a decent enough mid market phone, and is company issue. From starting the app to being able to access notes is 23 seconds, then you need to open a note, which takes a further 11 seconds (just timed it on a random note) and thats over half a minute before anything can be achieved. The Samsung is my work phone. Compare and contrast with my personal Iphone XR. 4 seconds to open the a
  4. This is something that has changed in recent years. When I had an iphone in 2016 the document capture was brilliant, I spent some time on Android, but came back to IOS in 2020 and have the same problem as described. Oddly it also now affects my work phone which is Android. Its always pot luck what the camera takes now!
  5. I have exported all of my notes in html format. The continuing problems with V10, plus the issues I have had with using EN and making it work effectively have moved me to the opposition and my subscription expires in May. I may renew, as I have nearly ten years of notes and commitment invested, but I'm open to moving away.
  6. I'd love to love the new EN. I have been an evangelist for it in the past, but its reliance on web syncing all of the time means it is not as stable as it should be. I am WFH today, so have good, fast internet. There have been no connection problems here today, but working in EN and suddenly a table I am working in disappeared and is replaced by an "Unable to Load" notification. I tried closing, re-opening etc and eventually I got most of it back, but the table is one that I need to update on site tomorrow on 4G and I'm very worried that it will do the same again. I have been wit
  7. IMHO the Cloud is now a safer place for data resilience than your own hard drives. The business I work for now keeps all data in the cloud using Citrix for reasons of business continuity and risk management, but we are encouraged (but not forced) to use Onenote for our personal work records, this keeps the data within the domains paid for by the company. I still use Evernote for a lot of meeting notes and document scans as it is quicker to access than Onenote generally, but that is stuff that back in the day I would have written in a notebook and kept in my desk, so it has no real
  8. I use one account for everything, as that seems to be point of the service - the external brain. If you set it up with a good password and 2FA I don’t see where the risk is?
  9. Agreed. Also the ability to merge and create a "Table of Contents" note would be nice to re-appear. It used to be in the web version, going back to around 2015, as I remember, but I have to go back to Legacy to do it on desktop. I use EN on Chromebook a great deal so having the feature on the web version (which is more stable on a Chromebook than the Android for me) would be the best place.
  10. I needed to buy a present for my wife. Connection made to a note from 2016 that confirmed a preference. The external brain strikes again.
  11. I went to Onenote, but I'm back. I couldn't get reliable syncing, and the web clipper isn't as good. Getting emails into it from gmail wasn't 100% effective, though, as you'd expect, adding from Outlook was brilliant. Anyway, the upshot was, that although although EN lacks some features and has taken some mis-steps, I still prefer to stick with them, as from my personal perspective and for my workflows EN still offers a better package.
  12. A problem with onenote is that notes created in the desktop version cannot be viewed or edited in the web version That might be historic - I’ve been using desktop, web and mobile for work projects for 12 months on Windows, Chrome, IOS and Android and it’s been fine. Downsides are slow to load when changing device, and I had some sync and notebook issues, but that was when I first had to use it. (Our corporate preference is ONeNote). It’s been solid for months.
  13. Sorry, this wasn't pointed at you personally, and I understand the frustration. I hadn't been adversely affected by the updates until today. Today I have been using the desktop windows version and was trying to update an existing work template for a new project and found that EN couldn't keep up with my typing, I am a two finger typist. It was like being on a dial up connection to a forum in the early 90's. I had to cut and paste the template to a Word document to be able to work on it in the end. This never used to be the case. So maybe Onenote is the best alternative for
  14. If you think that Onenote (for example) has no issues then you are wrong. Lots on their Reddits etc about loss of data, lock outs, slow syncing. I'm no EN fanboy, but surely if it's that bad go somewhere else. Stop complaining here and use the forum for the "new super note app" to tell them how great the new alternative product is. In my experience the alternative that does it all doesn't exist. Ian Small has been sensible in his interviews, the changes are for the many, not the superusers. I believe him when he says missing features will come back. Keep the faith. Or tell me where th
  15. So much moaning and negativity, when EN have been quite honest that features that are "power user" only and get the least use are the ones that will be last to be reinstated (and that some might be so niche as to not come back). For me, user on web, windows and IOS the new versions are more consistent and the new Home feature seems good, though not a gamechanger in workfow. I see so much on this forum about moving to alternatives, but very few doing it and being happy enough with the changes not to be coming back here. I have looked at alternatives.I am encouraged to use Onenote
