  1. More problems with this redesign: The Snippet view divider row showing the month is too pale again, as is the font. This is like deja (non)vu from complaints everybody voiced many versions ago when the Snippet column suddenly got bleached, before happily regaining a healthier hue once again later. The Reminders header is ridiculously small now. It's almost impossible to make out the number in parentheses alongside. It's very hard to understand why the team keeps making these pointless tweaks to the interface.
  2. Thanks for the new update. I have not experienced any crashes but one GLARING change is that the notebook a note belongs to is no longer presented in Snippet View. You have moved the date and tag to the bottom of the snippet and suddenly taken from us the name of the notebook to which the note belongs. This is not good. Please restore notebook names!!! And can we have them displayed on every snippet, whether or not they are selected, as I believe used to be the case many Evernotes ago.
  3. Thank you, @JMichaelTX for expressing the issue with such patience and lucidity. It is hard for us users to understand the reluctance the developers have to reverting to previous sync behaviour which allowed us complete control over our notes. The problem of sync conflicts is surely unrelated to users' sync rhythms, and it would seem to me that having manual control over syncing should, in normal circumstances, reduce the danger of such conflicts. It cannot be such a big ask for the team to deconstruct the heavy handed new sync behaviour and revert to the earlier, non-intrusive method we previously enjoyed. At the moment it feels like someone on the other end, there in the Evernote dungeons, has blithely assumed they must control our instincts and has got ahold of our mouse. I have done a lot of beta testing with several developers of different apps and I have never encountered such obtuseness as the recent EN team has displayed, and I have never had to be in such protracted conversations for them to understand my suggestions. It's all very disappointing. And embarrassing. After being such a fan of Evernote for most of its existence, I am now seeing friends giving up on you in disgust.
  4. I'm beginning to think that some underling from Trump's White House staff has taken over the Evernote team's decision making process. You have now, without warning, and after FIVE betas, suddenly taken away all sync options from Preferences in the final release candidate, in a bid, apparently, to cover up the long-standing sync issues you have been unable to cure – and left us only with that ridiculous, superfluous, uncalled for 'Waiting for sync' dialog which insists on popping up on quit, even when no notes have been added or editing changes made. If you wish to dumb down Evernote further, please be so kind as to inform us of your plans so we no longer have to constantly go through the embarrassment of these exchanges. We are here, to a great extent, to shepherd you through the beta process. Why are we being treated with such seeming contempt?
  5. Bug in this beta 3: When All Notes is selected this pane appears above Reminders: The pane cannot be dismissed by clicking on either Yes or No, or by hitting Enter. When a single notebook is selected, Reminders are listed as normal, without the pane above them. But as soon as I return to All Notes the pane reappears and refuses to go away. Tried restarting EN a couple of times, to no avail. EDIT: Ha! Vincent Noel just beat me to it. But it's good, or not, to know other users are experiencing this bug.
  6. I have to concur with JMichaelTX. Too many bugs lately with each new release. It's not that we don't appreciate the work you are putting in but a little more quality control is needed. On at least two of the previous updates, I found EN freezing as the update announcement pane came up and I had to force quit. Not encouraging.
  7. I have this problem too. In fact I've been noticing it for a while from earlier betas. Surely this is putting unnecessary strain on your servers. There is also the irritating Waiting for sync' window in recent updates, which pops up when I quit and seems totally superfluous since it scarcely hangs around long enough for us to hit its Quit button. It appears even when I have made no changes in EN and, in this latest version, whether or not 'Warn me if i quit while syncing' is checked in prefs. Completely unnecessary added distraction. I know when I quit EN and require no additional dialog to inform me.
  8. @rjnb, @Mike Figueroa and others who are encountering this problem: Happy to report I have now found a workaround which seems to solve the quitting issue. In prefs I set syncing to Manually and checked 'Warn me if I quit while syncing', and EN now fully quits. Not a total solution but it does the job in the meantime till the issue is properly fixed.
  9. Thank you for the new beta, which I'm very happy with in general, but it has a strange bug which prevents the app from quitting. The EN main window closes but the app won't quit completely – except if you manage to hit the Quit Now button in the closing 'syncing now' dialog in time before it disappears. If you don't succeed in catching the Quit Now button, EN remains active with no window open and the Quit menu item becomes greyed out. Only option is to force quit. I first made the update to this new beta from within EN. Tried quitting the EN Helper from my menubar and also restarting my Mac to see if that solved the issue, but no luck. I then manually re-downloaded the update from this discussion and installed it but the problem persists – EN won't quit entirely unless force quit. I'm on the latest 10.12.6 version of Sierra. Is anyone else noticing this issue? Your help appreciated.
  10. My mistake. I must have meant early betas of 6.11 where tabs worked. Anyway, here is a screenshot: Notice the '– Evernote' suffix in the tab headings.
  11. From EN 6.10.x I had several tabs open, each with a different notebook. I skipped the 6.11 beta updates after all the bad reports. Now I've installed 6.11.1 and found I had to open new tabs to restore my old arrangement, which I found very useful. Can you please explain to me why on earth the team should make the horrible decision to modify Tab headings by adding '– Evernote' as a suffix to the name of notebooks? Absolutely useless change. I want to see the notebook name as quickly and clearly as possible by glancing at the Tab, and not be confused by EN's self-promotion. Does Evernote fear that I might not be aware that I am in Evernote? I humbly request that you please remove this ludicrous innovation, and restore things to clarity. It gets worse. I now find that when I quit and reopen EN, the tabs have disappeared. I very much hope that the next beta will address this bug.
  12. Thanks very much for responding, rubenb. I finally found a solution from this other thread: https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/96324-my-web-clipper-stopped-working-with-10115-update/?page=2 Tobbelin's suggestion in that thread to run the cache-cleaning app Onyx fixed my problem and the clipper is running fine now. Thank you again.
  13. Since v6.9 I am unable to sign in to my Evernote account from the Safari web clipper. Using the latest Safari 9.1.2. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling. Relaunching Safari and rebooting Mac. No luck. The clipper responds when clicking on 'Create an Evernote account' and 'Forgot password?'. Just not 'Sign In'. Meanwhile, the Chrome web clipper has no such problem and works fine. Very frustrating. Please can you address this issue.
  14. I have the opposite problem. I want to see Recent Notes in the Sidebar but, as I reported already back when v6.8b1 came out, they are re-deselected in Sidebar Options every time I restart EN. One would have hoped that these bugs could have been fixed before new versions move out of beta to full updates. Surely one of the functions of this forum is to help the development team identify bugs. Perhaps, before rushing out new full versions, the team should pay more attention to problems we draw their attention to.
  15. Thank you for the new beta and for the improvements you've brought us. Unfortunately, a strange anomaly seems to be occurring in the Sidebar. Recent notes are disappearing between quitting and restarting EN. They were there the first couple of times I opened the app and then disappeared, and I now find that Recent Notes is greyed out in the Sidebar Options menu until I compile a new note. Earlier recent notes are no longer listed, only the new one(s) created since restarting, and as soon as I quit and restart the app they disappear from the Sidebar again. Can this be remedied please?
