  1. Notion also won't OCR, which is a big problem for me. I do my archival work by taking pictures in Evernote, which then automatically get OCR'd and searchable.
  2. Title says it all. If anyone using an iPad Pro or iPhone with a lidar scanner, have you noticed any improvement in speed or focus when scanning documents?
  3. Problem is, that's kind of impossible. Some things some customers depend upon (tabs, ability to choose fonts) were removed because other users either don't use them, or "need" features like cross-platform identical notes, which led to removal of ability to choose fonts. Making some customers very happy leads to making other customers very unhappy, because we want different things that (apparently) can't be accommodated.
  4. I understand that Evernote thinks it's super important to limit the fonts, because apparently everyone is syncing and sharing notes with all kinds of other people, and cross-platform unity has been requested. Fine. But isn't there a way to allow that to be the default behavior, but also build in a secret power-user setting to allow people to, you know, pick their own fonts? This is a major issue for me, so much so that after years of paying for Evernote, today I downloaded some alternatives to play around with (Keep It looks like it works with my workflow)
  5. There is more to font utility than merely displaying characters "correctly."
  6. I left similar feedback during the beta as well. Long time paying customer. Have convinced other people to use Evernote. It is UNCONSCIONABLE to say "we're not going to let users choose their own fonts. Because everyone is sharing notes with weird fonts, and that's a problem." No. Absolutely, NO. I've been using the current release and the legacy together. Yeah, current release has some nice things. But I will continue using the legacy as long as I can (or until I find an alternate app that fits my work), because I HATE THE FONTS YOU HAVE IMPOSED ON ME! And I don't share notes
  7. 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, th
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. I cannot believe it's been more than three years WITH NO CHANGE WHATSOEVER ON THIS!
  11. 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?
  12. 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...?
  13. 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 Not
  14. 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.
