  1. Bottom line: Evernote needs to restore the functionality to their new web app. That's my point.
  2. Not so. I'm doing just that right now in the current (not beta) version. Typing a word will find it anywhere in a tag. Could be the first word, a middle word or the last word in a tag. That's the same functionality with the Android app. But not in the Windows desktop application. VERY helpful feature. We need it back!
  3. The new web client is looking good! Very clean, good organization. Two observations of problems with tagging a note: Cannot search based on a term IN a tag. For instance, I have a tag "Customers - Commercial". I'm using to typing in "Comm" and finding this tag quickly. The beta only searches the front of the string. So, using my example, "Comm" only brings up tags that have "Comm" at the front of the tag, not "Comm" contained in the tag. Maybe I'm missing something? Not all tags that are assigned to a note are visible. Runs off the screen. Need to have all assigned tags visible, as it is in the current version of the web client. I like the way the tags are now, especially the way creating a filter on the tags work from within the note. Thank you.
  4. I use Evernote on many different platforms.... now I have a new Chromebook and am thrilled with the performance, beating out Windows easily. This is now my go to device for work and writing. I'm thrilled to be able to use the Evernote Android app on this platform. Overall, it works well.... except for one thing... the creation of a new note. It takes 45-60 seconds for the note content area to FINALLY be available in this situation. My conclusion is the "template" thing in the note area apparently takes a while to load. This bogs down the application on something I rarely have use for. My suggestion to the Evernote development team: Please give us the option in Settings to disable the Template button thing that appears in the note content area. Put this in a menu, NOT in the body of the note. It's slowing down your app WAY down. And forcing something on users that frankly gets in the way. OK... some users may want it.... thus the option in Settings to turn on/off that kind of functionality. The less that Evernote (or any other software vendor) forces something on users, the better. Some may say, "Why don't you use Evernote in the Chrome browser"? I do. It's MUCH faster than the Android app on this platform. However, it is not offline. There are times when I am in a location where I don't have access to the Internet but I need access to my notes and to be able to create notes. That's part of why I'm a veteran Evernote user. Bottom line: the Evernote Android app operating on Chrome would be a SO MUCH BETTER experience if Evernote would put in place the suggestion above. Something is slowing down note opening... especially when creating a note.... I suspect it's this new Template thing that Evernote puts in the middle of note creation. Thank you.
  5. I concur with what CalS said (below) I just downloaded Evernote for Windows version and now many of my notes are empty. Or Evernote will say "downloading content". Why? The content should ALREADY be "downloaded" and in Evernote desktop. Someone else said this and I strongly (and sadly) concur: the Evernote people are infamous for breaking "something else" whenever there is an update. I have been using Evernote Premium for 8 years and this has always been the case. It's called poor version management and poor quality control. I absolutely dread downloading Evernote's latest "updates'. More like BREAKS to me. There is absolutely no excuse for this. Apparently, Evernote could care less or they would stop doing this. This is no "knee-jerk" complaint on just one issue. This has happened dozens of times over the last 8 years. Enough is enough. As soon a competitor comes up with a worthy replacement, I'm gone. Unfortunately MS OneNote does not do tags that are equivalient to the hundreds embedded in my nearly 15,000 notes.
  6. Thanks everyone for you helpful input on this topic. I'm glad to hear that the latest version may have addressed this issue.
  7. UPDATE: the bug occurs when you add a new note after having performed a search based on a tag. That should not happen. Just because I search something, doesn't mean I'm forced into using a tag in a new note.
  8. Ever since the latest Evernote update the following bug has developed: Click new note button to create a new note. A new note comes up, but instead of having no tags it already has one tag in it and this tag cannot be removed, not matter what I do. Long time user of Evernote. Know what I'm talking about. I know normal Evernote functionality. This is not a normal. this is a bug. Please fix ASAP. Thank you. Windows desktop version: (305825) Windows version: 10 Home latest
  9. Thanks, csihilling. Hopefully, Evernote will get going and get this fixed.
  10. To see the list of Saved Searches in Evernote, according to the Evernote Help webpage on Saved Searches: As of Evernote version (305512) Public, this functionality is no longer working. Clicking or tapping on the Search Notes box or the magnifying glass icon at the right of that box does nothing. I would appreciate it if Evernote engineering would fix this bug right away, as this is essential Evernote user functionality. Thank you.
  11. Yeah, been there done that many times in over 40 years of doing tech. I will say in all those years, Evernote is close to the top of the list for having the nasty habit of breaking things that were working before with their "latest updates". They really need to improve their quality control standards when it comes to the release of a version of their software. I've observed this only with their Windows application. Android, it's a different (way better) story. Needless to say, I'm going through the drill with their tech support of sending logs, etc.....
  12. Evernote support has finally reached out to me and I am sending them information and logs Etc. It is interesting that I'm having this happen on two separate machines running two different versions of windows with two separate Evernote accounts. It's also interesting that this is exactly like the problem that existed before and when that problem existed Evernote had told me that it was a known issue with their software. As a matter of fact they encouraged me to download a beta version of the next software and that worked. And then of course that next version of software with the correction replaced the beta version. Things were going quite well for a few months and then bang here we go back to square one same problem of sluggish typing. I hope they reexamine their code and fix the problem thanks
  13. [I sent this out via Evernote Support on May 4th and besides a computer-generated email response saying "we got your support request and we'll be in touch with you", Evernote Support (and I am a Premium paying customer) has been silent for 4 days]: We are back to square one: months ago I complained about the terrible, sluggish performance of Evernote when typing a note. The next update of Evernote cleared out the issue. Everything wonderfully well after that corrective update. Unfortunately, the latest update, "version (304720) Public" which was I installed about 2-3 weeks ago is terrible. We are back to the problem I had earlier: when typing in a note VERY sluggish performance. It's like I'm typing through molasses. This is happening on this, my personal Evernote Premium account, on a Windows 10 PC AND a separate work account (another Evernote Premium account), on a Windows 7 Pro PC. So, clearly, the problem is NOT my computer. It IS your software. PLEASE fix this! It is ruining my productivity. Thank you. Please stop releasing buggy updates that ruin perfectly well functioning software! Your Quality Control department needs to do a much better job of vetting updates to make sure you are not deploying buggy software!
  14. I downloaded version 6.05... with some trepidation since I thought that Evernote would have eviscerated the desktop application like they did the web application (a la, "Minimalist") and to my immense relief the excellent functionality is there without the painfully slow searches. I'm also getting fewer application stalls in Windows. The interface seems cleaner. Now, if Evernote would take the same approach in the web application, I would be thrilled.
  15. Didn't notice. Definitely can count on you to come up with a great productivity hack for my top two productivity tools: Evernote & WorkFlowy! Both are open in separate tabs in Chrome right now! Mark
