  1. It's always a good rule to backup your own apps when things are running smoothly while never allow auto-updates. I've had some Play Store apps sneak by updates despite my settings, oddly enough. The more you rely on an app, the more valuable your backups become, so it's best to be ready when a developer "pulls an Evernote" and you're stuck with a crippled app (pretty sure Evernote was the inspiration for my developing this valuable habit was back in 2010 or 2011, after learning the hard way
  2. I was sitting there wondering why I didn't get any more 6.25*.* updates. It didn't seem that long ago that I got the last one. And we already have to resort to Filehippo to get a past copy? Looking at this thread feels like history repeating itself. I remember suffering through Evernote bloat during certain release stages before (either 4.x or 5.x) among a lot of ongoing annoyances that I traded for a lot of ongoing new perks and improvements over the years. Leaping from 6 to 10 sounds like a very Microsofty thing to do when forcing users to part with the versions they perfected. I c
  3. This isn't a huge program breaking issue or anything, but an odd annoyance that just started a few days and doesn't coincide with a recent update (I have the current public version installed weeks ago I'd guess). I'll be searching like normal one minute, and the next minute nothing at all comes up... but there's a connection. I'll notice my list of tags in the side panel, which I always have collapsed because it's a bloody jungle, will be expanded. I confirm the cursor IS indeed in the notes panel where note searches are performed, and it will fail to find *anything*. When I got back to
  4. Hah, that blog post says it all. I didn't notice the logo change at all and probably never would have had I not skimmed it, but it's no surprise there was a long winded dramatic newsletter posted about it. I guess it's better than them investing in 80 dollar notebooks and 60 dollar elephant sock merch.
  5. Well, I'm a different user, but chiming in to say I'm glad you asked those questions. I had this non stop with shared notes several months ago, and it seemed to have cleared up. Even tonight, I was making some entries in shared notes doing just fine, then it started again all of a sudden. (I did update to the current public release recently, but that was a few days ago). It definitely happens more likely in a separate window (glad you brought that bit up), because force editing it in the internal windows seems to be preventing the cursor jump, but in place of the jump, my old friend key
  6. That's true. I got hopeful when I stopped seeing ads for 40 dollar socks and 70 dollar smart moleskins or whathave you. Luckily I'm not getting bit by the broken features since my clipper isn't working period (unless I switch to an outdated version of Firefox, which I've been resorting to). Instead of bandaging a paralyzed update you'd think they'd roll it back. Luckily copy and paste has improved compared to how it used to be (I can paste this thread without too much butchering). Thanks to Ian for posting the link to the past versions, by the way. I used to be diligent o
  7. Thanks to this thread I'm just now finding out we can change the number of recently used notebooks. This has been on my wishlist for years!! Cranked that puppy up to 7. I wonder when that feature was implemented. I wonder if they listened Thank you
  8. I remember having these issues back in the Evernote 4.x days on my PC, then 5 it seemed like it came around and fixed a lot of these usability issues. Then along came 6, with some cool bells and whistles, and like a ghost from the past the usability started tanking. (I mentioned in a previous thread that I get these input lag pretty bad, but for some reason on shared notes it was downright crippled constantly). It seems to have improved some on my desktop for regular notebooks (not shared), but the lappy still suffers. Mobile apps though, I remember trying to load simple notes back in the hum
  9. I had that happen at first, then I realized you had to check the little box (or radial button) under "Free" or "Paid" (something along those lines) and then pick whether you'd purchase it or not, which didn't make since seeing as checking the free version was one of the options you were supposed to select. That bit was a little convoluted and hard to follow, but it won't proceed until you check one.
  10. I've been noticing constant hanging every few sentences in current versions of Evernote for at least the past 6 months, probably more. I use it on two different Windows 7 machines, one 2012 era, and one 2015 era. No other applications hang on these machines. I used to always have frequent syncing on with no problem, and this was one of the triggers of this issue, but not the only. I'd be typing a sentence then the cursor would suddenly hang, then the buffer of what I was typing would either appear at the top of the note after the automatic sync, or skip to another note entirely and plop the
  11. I noticed the same issue. I even just got done complaining to myself that to this day , by default it doesn't even recognize it's own name, Evernote, the abbreviation GPS, or the contraction "doesn't". It's extra frustrating when it forgets my manual additions of these words. I don't see why the dictionary file doesn't sync across devices (as far as I can tell).
  12. Thanks for the feedback... Luckily this is only happening on one of two Windows machines now, so I guess it's isolated.
  13. This is mainly an issue for all of the old notes I manually typed, and while "simplify formatting" does correct it, it destroys all of my text formatting (basic stuff, nothing fancy or web clipped sources). I have been through a few updates since then and it still remains. I've seen others report similar issues under various scenarios, but haven't come across a working resolution for this. Any other ideas? I was late to update (as I like major updates to be broken in before making the plunge myself to avoid being bit by bugs.....), but I've been tolerating it for some time.
  14. Thanks for the link and the tip, I appreciate it. I didn't catch the thread when I searched for it, but I did only skim the titles of the search results. I agree, seems pretty major to be an afterthought to dig for a workaround, but at the same time I'm glad there is one. I don't understand the reasoning: Virtually every operating system knows how to deal with an https link (in case you don't have Evernote installed on that particular machine) and there is a way to add that note to your account or even request access to it if you don't have permission to view the note. Under th
  15. I recently started using the current version of Evernote 5 (on Windows 7) after sticking with the last release of Evernote 4 up until 5 had a handful of updates. I'm not sure if this is a glitch, or an intended change (I hope not), but when I tried using my favorite feature - 'Copy Note Link', I was confused why it kept generating web-based Evernote.com links to the note instead of internal Evernote:// style links like I expected. Am I experiencing a glitch or did I miss the memo?
