  1. I upgraded last night. One positive thing about version 8.9.1 is that search is NOTICEABLY faster than previous Android versions. I'm not happy about the non-highlighting that Mayurh noted above. It might be, though, that the non-highlighting and the faster search are connected in some way - either intentionally or unintentionally. Also not happy that Evernote issued a fix without acknowledging the problem, and the serious impact the problem had on many Android users. I believe most Android users have never been to this forum, and probably didn't find out about the fix by restoring an earlier version. It's not the worst software problem in human history, but Evernote could have handled the situation better.
  2. Presumably, since there is a quasi-public announcement that Evernote is aware of the problem and working on it, there will be a FULL public announcement when a version is released and the bug is fixed, so that those who went to an earlier version (which now includes me) will know that they can safely update. At least, that's the MINIMUM one would expect at this point.
  3. Tip for those returning to an earlier version - make sure to follow this thread and/or check into the forum periodically so that you will know when a new version of EN with search working is released. You can then turn the automatic update back on.
  4. I just changed wallets, and noticed that my emergency medical information card in the old wallet was in bad condition and also outdated. After a bit of thought, I created a note in Evernote to save the information. I set the font to 8, and set up the information in a table. Once I print the note out (without the title), I fold the paper in half and it just fits in one of the slots in my wallet. As a saved Evernote I can easily update the note when info changes and print out a new card. Though this isn't a groundbreaking idea, it would make a nice template for Evernote to add to its collection. I took out my personal information and saved the note here - https://www.evernote.com/l/ABAix7CVdPFIJreO-dOBlSAH6RjyrMaGmUo/ .Feel free to tweak it for your purposes - a little color would probably be nice.
  5. Having the same problems - search not working on Android. Search is working on Evernote for Web. Cleared cache and search history - didn't solve the problem. Also, my list of saved searches on Android has only 5 saved searches - it used to show all of my searches, with the same list as in Evernote for Windows and Evernote on the web. Hope this problem is fixed SOON - very annoying.
  6. FYI to Evernote - my quick two cents on the web beta. I generally like the beta better than the original version. Recently I started using the web version more because the Windows version runs too slowly on my five-year-old work computer. While I miss the quick notebook selection, the one show stopper for me is not having access to saved searches. I have about 30 saved searches, with about 5 that I use at least every other day. I hate switching back and forth between the old and new web versions to be able to do the searches, so I tend to stick with the old web version, even though visually I find the new version more amenable to focusing on my work.
  7. Thanks for the tip. I actually have bxactions loaded; have been using it to activate the flashlight, though I find I don't use the button for that purpose very often. Maybe I'll change it as you suggest so that it loads an Evernote handwriting note, and see if that works better than the three-step alternative.
  8. Lexbrkly, I use the handwriting feature in Evernote pretty much every day, but rarely for long notes. Right now to open a handwriting note I have to turn the lock screen off, then tap the handwriting icon on the Evernote widget - three steps, including taking out the stylus. If I in a rush and/or feeling lazy, I use the Samsung screen off feature (which requires only one step), and then later share the Samsung note with Evernote if it contains information that I want to save. I agree - it would be much, much better if the screen off notes automatically synced with Evernote. So I guess I'm hoping for a Note 9 pen feature that would enable me to pull out the stylus, press the button, and jump immediately to an Evernote handwriting note. Two steps is better than three.
  9. Just tried it with an "all" search. Looks like the search loads correctly, but if I try to change to "any", it instead displays all notes. This seems to happen only if there are multiple search terms. For example, a saved search which looks for just one tag is unaffected (probably because an "any" search is the same as an "all" search if there is only one term). Again, all of this is better than how it was before - the saved searches upon load do what they were designed to do.
  10. I'm not 100% sure, but it looks like this bug is fixed in Evernote for Windows, at least as of beta version 6.14.1.7551. When I load a saved search that has the "any" term, it comes up as "any". If I click on the any to change it to all, I can't change it. That's not ideal functionality, but it's better than the alternative. At least this way the saved search does what it was intended to do, even if it's a little harder to change from "any" to "all" with the same search terms. I haven't yet tried to save an "all" search to see if it works the same way - when I do, I'll post back here with results (unless someone else beats me to it).
  11. Oh no, I don't have a Note 9. I have a Note 8 on lease, and the lease ends in February 2019. Odds are that I will get a Note 9 then; I doubt I would wait for the Note 10. So I'm hoping that by next year Evernote will have worked out some cool new tricks using the S Pen & the Note 9.
  12. When the time is right, I would love to see Evernote take advantage of new functionality available via the Bluetooth S Pen in the upcoming Note 9. The most obvious use would be a way to click on the pen and jump immediately to a new Evernote with the note prepared to accept handwriting. Another use would be for a double click to automatically save the open note.A third cool feature would be to somehow use the S pen to automate taking a picture with the phone's camera and saving it as a new Evernote.
  13. I've been having the same problem for many months - it's annoying. I have a number of searches that focus on notes that have been recently updated or created where I save the search with "any", but it almost always comes up as "all" when I run the search. Most of the time I have to manually type the search terms into the search box with an "any" to get the results I want. Very inefficient. Any news on getting this bug fixed? It's persisted over a number of updates to Evernote for Windows. By the way, problem happens on both my work computer running Windows 7, and my home computer running Windows 10.
  14. is there any indication on the screen that the note has been saved during the editing process? "every 60 seconds" or so isn't quite as reassuring as it might be, especially if the user has a computer or browser or phone crash while editing.
