  1. I am intrigued: what is the interview you're referring to, where Ian mentioned or suggested that iPad support isn't a priority for Evernote? -Alex
  2. True, I also got that error. I think that when that happens, killing Safari, restarting it, and reload Evernote gets you out it. If anything, this should serve as a sign that the issue you raised should be fixed. I am wondering if this Evernote bug is related to Safari shrinking its URL bar, but I don't see a way to prevent that behavior as an iPadOS user. Did you also report it to Support, in case nobody from Evernote reads this thread? -Alex
  3. Yes, I have also noticed this. Reloading Evernote Web solves the problem, but takes time. +1 -Alex
  4. Today search is able find content in that particular note. So I also suspect that this is a problem with their server-side indexer. I will try to contact Support about this, but it might be a hard one if a problem that I noticed today cannot be reproduced next day, unless they already know about it, in which case me contacting them might not be very useful. -Alex
  5. I seem to be having the same problem: I have at least one specific note that Search seems to be unable to find. Even searching for a word that appears in the title does not return that note. And this seems to be the case across platforms with the new Evernote 10, in the sense that the web app and the Mac app are both unable to find that note. Even the new ⌘J doesn't find it. I had this problem in the past, and it seems to me that if this persists, this would be a showstopper. Is this a known issue? If so, until this is fixed, does anyone know of a workaround? -Alex
  6. Well said. Nowadays, there is no reason to treat the browser as a second-class platform, especially for a product built on top of web technologies like Evernote. And talking about keyboard shortcuts, I'd even add that not only the shortcuts themselves, but also the ability to customize shortcuts is paramount on the web, where different browser/OS combinations capture different shortcuts and prevent them from being used by web apps. -Alex
  7. Yes, I have the same problem. If using it in Safari, which I prefer to the Electron app, reloading Evernote solves the problem, for a little while. Not a show stopper, but it would be nice if this one could be fixed. -Alex
  8. When clicking on a link in a note that points to a file I have stored in Google Drive, Evernote opens the in-app browser. Instead, I'd like it to open the Google Drive app, as I believe was possible with the previous version of Evernote. And just to be clear, I am talking about links like https://drive.google.com/…. -Alex
  9. Yes, is there somewhere a list of keyboard shortcuts that can be used in the Evernote Web client? (Of course, that's a tricky one because some shortcuts are deemed to be taken by different browsers, but several web apps offer keyboard shortcuts, so I hope this will also be the case for Evernote.) -Alex
  10. Yes, reminders. Strange, isn't it? And I did get a notification tonight. I'm wondering if the problem could only happen if the reminder is set on the macOS app; or maybe if this was a note that existed before the update to 10.x, vs. a new note created since then. There are so many possible combination. Hopefully this one will resolve by itself, and thank you for chiming in! ‑Alex
  11. This one is rather strange: notifications have been working for me for a few days after upgrading to a Evernote 10, and after that, they stopped working. This might have coincided with the upgrade to iOS 14, but I am not sure. The items for which I should get notifications are showing just fine in Evernote itself, and in Settings notifications are allowed for Evernote. Anyone had a similar problem? Any tips on how to get notifications to work again? ‑Alex
  12. Thank you @DTLow. I did a search before posting, but apparently failed! And I've upvoted this feature request, as suggested. I agree: constant maintenance and pruning is key. I've also taken the habit of only putting in Evernote text that I type myself, and pretty much only allow short quote that I find particularly well worded as an exception to this rule. Summarizing and rewriting ideas "in my own words" helps me understand the concepts more deeply, and makes me use words that I am then more likely to also use in a search. Also I don't have a lot of attachements: the vast majority of my files are in Drive instead of Evernote, and I'm linking to Drive from Evernote. But occasionally, having a PDF or image inline is really convenient, but the downside is that I then waste time when those attachments come up as the result from a search. Nothing is perfect! ‑Alex
  13. I am sure that some of you consider Evernote's ability to search though attachments, even doing its own OCR on images and PDF, as godsend. For me it is the opposite: most of the time, I just want to search through my notes, the stuff I have written, and want to exclude occurrences of the word I am searching for in documents I might have attached for easy reference. Is this possible? Without this, I feel even more the temptation not to store attachments in Evernote, which makes the product less valuable. ‑Alex
  14. Well, well, you're right; I thought that San Francisco could only be used by apps for UI elements, and couldn't be "installed" as a regular font. But I was wrong. I could just install it and then select it from the Evernote preferences. Thank you for the hint! ‑Alex
  15. Is it possible to switch the default font for notes on the Mac to be San Francisco (the "default" OS font)? Right now, I have it set to Helvetica (see screenshot attached). I can change the font, but don't see San Francisco from the font selection menu. Am I missing something? ‑Alex
