  1. In v7.14, the reminder dates are pretty-printed (e.g. Today, Tomorrow, Mon mm/dd, etc.). Makes reminders much easier to use! If some people don't want pretty-printing - it can be a function of the size of the column. E.g. fully expanded "Reminder Time" column shows date and time; shortened column hides time and instead shows the pretty-printed date (e.g. Today, Tomorrow, etc.).
  2. Yay for Top View! I'm almost ready to switch to v10 - but out of the suggested reminder-related feature requests in this post, need 2 of them before I can formally switch: Just thought I'd bump up this thread in the off chance a Product Manager at Evernote sees this and wants to give this XmasMonkey a great Xmas gift.
  3. You can't in Evernote v10.x (yet). It's listed as coming soon. Until then - you can keep using Evernote v7.1.4.
  4. I don't think it is a new feature - it is a new foundation. The Evernote Team internally seems to call v10 "the starting line" as I suspected.
  5. That might be 100% true, and Evernote might lose a bunch of users because of the delay in getting out a v10 that satisfies enough user needs to create a long-term viable business. It could even be the end of their business if the delay proves to have been too long. I really hope this is not true, as I have been a long-time Evernote user and still prefer it - imperfections and all - to alternatives I've seen. v10 isn't good enough for me at the moment, but I really appreciate I'm able to run v7 in parallel. I don't want to be running v7 forever of course, because at some point it will
  6. It sounds simple in theory, but it rarely works out that way in practice. I don't know Evernote's numbers - but I can tell you that for every dollar more you charge, you typically churn more paying users and reduce freemium conversions than you do retain users or attract new business. I suspect raising prices on existing users during a period where Evernote knows quality and pace of innovation has suffered on the existing platform would be more harmful than helpful at this point. Let's assume you run Evernote. Your data says you can't raise prices at the moment without signif
  7. Was going to say the same thing. Here's some of the data I would look at: What % of searches (in search bar, clicking on a tag, etc.) make use of tags to filter the query? What % of users who had tags created later remove tags? (signal on ongoing feature utility) What % of users who create a tag in week 1 of installing Evernote come back in week 2? (i.e. impact of tags on product retention) What % of free accounts that convert to premium have tags created? What % of paying users have tags created? What % of 7-day active paying users have tags created?
  8. <rant> The Evernote Team is not "out to get us". Maintaining 6 unique native code bases (Android, iOS, Mac, Windows, Web, sync platform) is INCREDIBLY HARD. Feature sets diverge between all platforms, angering users. Pace of innovation slows, angering users. Technical debt inevitably builds, but now you have 6 unique sources of varying technical debt. As a result - bug fixing pace slows, angering users. Meanwhile Evernote is a business, and it has to be sustainable. Every company eventually reaches the "we have to make significant upgrades to our aging platform / approach if
  9. First off - kudos to implementing my #1 feature request with reminders (the ability to set "No date")! Sure - it took 7 years - but it was a tiny feature request that I didn't expect to get prioritized, so to see it in v10 is great. Some v10 wishlist items related to reminders: All Reminders button: in addition to an "All Notes" button in the left-hand nav - add an "All Reminders" button. This button jumps straight to the "Reminders" view. See screenshot. Also see this feature request. Sort saved search results by reminder date: allow saved search results to be sortable
  10. Out of curiosity - if the new Evernote app keeps everything in sync in real-time, why do you need the manual sync button? I've been trained from many years of Evernote use to click the manual "Sync" button - so it is weird not to have it anymore - but after thinking about it some more, I realized I should never have had to build the habit of triggering sync myself (it should just happen in real-time without intervention, which it looks like it now does).
  11. I remember that. It was removed - but they heard enough users cite exactly why the feature was useful (e.g. full-width note viewing on small screens) and they brought it back. Props to the Evernote team for listening. This time - they have already said it will be supported but is not yet released. I can use v7 until it is ready. I think that is fair.
  12. Actually - this is about v10. Wonder why it was moved to the forum about v7.14?
  13. Ah ok. I posted in the v10 Bugs forum (but the topic was moved here). I can file a ticket with support directly, just thought if I posted others might have insight or +1 the issue.
  14. Love the new ability to use header styles in notes. I edited a note and added large, medium, and small headers. I changed the font-size of the headers and used the “Update header to match style” option to set a new style for all my headers. Within that note - highlighting text and applying a header style correctly used my custom header style. However in a different note - applying the header style used the default Evernote header style vs. the custom one I created. Is it a bug that my custom header styles don’t persist between notes? Or is that on purpose?
  15. By the way - appreciate the Evernote team releasing v10 in a way that you can still run v7. Migrating to a new code base is *always* painful (but necessary to unlock the next wave of innovation). This gives users options to maintain current workflows until v10 matures enough for them to switch over (and/or they decide v10 is not going to work for them no matter what). That said - I need Top View back or else I'm leaving forever. And you'll miss me. Believe me. You'll miss me.
  16. Just saw this. Best moments in my life: 1) birth of my kid, 2) hearing Top View is coming back.
  17. Yup - same issue. This battle was fought when they first came out with Evernote 7. Love the innovation, love the highlighter colors - just need Top View back!
  18. What??? I see violet, but no indigo? Evernote team - GET IT TOGETHER ALREADY.
  19. I hear you. I have been requesting a feature for 7 years - the ability to clear the date on a reminder - which seems simple (to me), but probably won't be prioritized vs. the re-platforming they are doing.
  20. I was having this same problem (and posted about it here). Just discovered others are having the same frustration - I feel validation of my daily struggle! Sounds like from DTLow's earlier post this is a regression introduced in v7.6 of Evernote for Mac. Hoping bumping this up may get this fixed in an upcoming version!
  21. It’s there. Go to the new Evernote Web (in beta) and you can choose highlighter colors. I believe this will come to the desktop apps at the next update, but the next update of desktop apps seems to be taking longer than usual. But at least the web version proves the feature exists now.
  22. Time for me to start a new "There are too many highlighter color choices, and it is confusing. Please limit highlighter colors to just yellow or I will abandon Evernote." thread!
