  1. Watched the recent YouTube video interview. The CEO says "we are not implementing tabs at this point... it was not a heavily utilized feature." Which is a crime, on two aspects. First, Tabs are integral and critical to my usage, because I will have open archival documents simultaneously with my notes and research outlines. But more importantly, second, I didn't know Evernote did tabs until maybe 1-2 years ago. And my brother (finishing a joint MBA/MHA and a big Evernote user) and I were chatting, I complained about the removal of tabs, and he said, "Evernote has tabs?!" Clearly, the company has not done a good job telling users this was available, which probably accounts for its low usage.
  2. I have been generally unhappy with the beta and rebuild, which I've detailed here before. But I must give props in at least one area. I'm a PhD candidate, do a lot of archival work, and use Evernote to capture archival documents directly. Using my iPhone 11, the new iOS autoscan was much faster and smarter than the old one! Saved me lots of time and frustration, I was very impressed. The scanning tool did crash once, wiping out about 40 images; I learned from that that while the old scanning tool retained those after a crash, the new one didn't. So, "save" more often, I suppose, on the user end.
  3. Long time paying customer, use it for doctoral research, etc. I was a beta tester, and was shocked to find it released into the wild the way it was. For me, it's missing some key features, like tabs. I do really miss the ability to set my own fonts; when I asked about this, they said it was to address a problem when sharing notes with people. Well, I don't know how many people share notes. I suppose if it's a corporate or team account, sure. But to *assume* that everyone is working on a team and redesign to that loses you all the non-team users. I don't share notes with anyone but me and my wife, and it's rare. Dropbox did something similar, where they assume every user is corporate by default. Mac users can no longer "lock" their documents stored in Dropbox, because that would interfere with sharing and group document work. That said, I have noticed some improvements. I have notes with lots of archival scans of documents, and those seem to be significantly more responsive in some ways now. Probably the result of the rebuilt code base? But for the short term, at least, I'm sticking with 7 on OSX, and hoping that these other missing features get added as quickly as possible.
  4. I cannot believe it's been more than three years WITH NO CHANGE WHATSOEVER ON THIS!
  5. I have a large note that is text-only. But in card-view (my default), it shows a picture of some guy around a campfire. I don't even recognize him, don't have any idea where this picture is coming from. If I add in a picture, THAT picture becomes the snippet pic. But delete it, and it returns to... random dude around a campfire. Help?
  6. Thanks for the reply. I'm unclear, though. The keyboard shortcut to generate a note link already uses the option key (ctrl+opt+command+c); In textedit and Things, option+command+v doesn't do anything, no pasting at all. Unless there's a different shortcut for generating a Note Link...?
  7. I've started using the Note Link feature a good bit, both in Evernote itself and outside. That is, I use Things, which allows you to drag in links, documents, etc. to a particular ToDo item. If I make a Note Link, paste it into another note in Evernote, and then do right-click, "copy link", then I get a link like this evernote:///view/467162679/s17/e6e14cd6-71f9-4dcb-91da-4616ee0061ad/e6e14cd6-71f9-4dcb-91da-4616ee0061ad/ And clicking on that in Things opens up the right note in Evernote. Perfect, though a bit cumbersome. However, if I use the keyboard shortcut to create a Note Link (which is automatically copied to the clipboard), I get a link like this https://www.evernote.com/shard/s17/nl/467162679/e6e14cd6-71f9-4dcb-91da-4616ee0061ad/ And when I click on that in Things, instead of taking me to my Evernote app, it loads a browser, and takes me to the Evernote log-in page. Obviously not what I want. My question Is there a way to generate the first kind of link from the Create Note Link keyboard shortcut?
  8. Currently, tabs are marked with the name of the open note's notebook. However, I would find it much more useful to have the tab name be the note name. Otherwise I end up flipping through all my tabs to find the correct note anyway.
