  1. I've been reading this thread with a growing sense of foreboding, which has in turn created a growing rage, and finally, resignation (literally). I've been using EN since 2008 on Mac, Windows and iOS - but mainly on a Mac. It's never been been feature-level across all platforms but has been a joy to use - until now. I have a very slick (IMHO) GTD workflow that works for me. It involves using tags and only really works because I can see a lot of information on a small screen. The release of 10 has blown that out of the water because of a UI designed for 5yr-olds and loss of features. I've only just noticed because I got a new Mac and was landed with 10.5.7. I've downloaded the legacy app for now, but the clock is ticking. Some years ago I moved all my non-GTD notes to OneNote because of some other inane design decision (I got fed up with the awful text editor), but EN has been a great GTD app. However, now I've taken the decision to migrate before my plus subscription expires next month and have cancelled the auto-renewal. During the downgrade, I was asked to give my reasons. They were simple "I've lost too much productivity developing work-arounds for the poor design decisions and implentation in V 10. Basically, don't trust you with my data anymore" I've started to review alternatives. All I need is a very good GTD app. Even if it means I have to-key, I won't loose as much as I have with V 10. I've looked at DevonThink before. It's good, but Mac-only which is no good. I'm about to look at Joplin.
  2. I use use custom views that display the result of searches based on tags extensively. In previously releases, updating the tags on a note caused the view to update. Thus, if I removed the tag used by the view, the note would dissapear. I would use this all the time to only display notes that need action. Since the updgrade to 10.5.7 (from a pre-10 version), this does not happen and has completely dusrupted a carefully designed workflow. I am very unhappy.
