  1. I try to use the keyboard to navigate as much as possible and this one is kind of annoying. To recreate: Select a note in the note list Hit F2 to jump to title Hit Tab to jump to note content. You should see the cursor at this point. Try typing. I get nothing. If I repeat F2 and Tab, it works. I also get the same response from hitting Enter or Ctrl + Enter in the note list. Shouldn't there be a way to edit notes from the list using just your keyboard?
  2. Other possible title: "How do I make this app suck less?" I am running the latest version on an iPhone6. No beta software. The experience was getting better but has since taken a nosedive. Extremely laggy response assuming it doesn't just crash. When it does respond, it seems to take a very long time to do anything. Suggestions please! I turned offline notebooks on thinking that might help, but it feels like they're always syncing and are never "done".
  3. I should have been more clear. I use a PC everyday for work. My Mac is my personal machine. And I much prefer Evernote on Windows. It's just better, in my opinion. This is the conundrum for me. I have no desire to run Windows on a personal machine, but Evernote is my #1 app. So do I go where the better software is? Or stick with Mac because I prefer the environment? It's a tough call.
  4. Still holding out hope that this will get implemented at some point. I'm seriously thinking about a PC for my next computer since Evernote for Windows is more customizable.
  5. Any new options for customizing the toolbar in this beta? Or can you have shortcuts in the collapsed view of the sidebar?
  6. Bump-bumpedy bump bump bump. Really would love to collapse that sidebar in the Mac client and have my shortcuts up in the toolbar. There's so much wasted space up there. That would be pretty killer.
  7. Nice. I thought I was going crazy. I kept thinking I was accidentally hitting a shortcut or something. It doesn't seem to matter whether I'm in a new note or not. I'll just start typing away and then the focus jumps. I assumed it was an issue with syncing.
  8. Are you saying delete, reinstall, and turn off offline notebooks or turn it on?
  9. Folks, if you're going to continue discussing peanuts, might I suggest looking for forums over at the Planters website. Evernote doesn't pay for these forums so that we can discuss nuts and legumes and other plant-based protein sources. I'm looking at you soy! ?
  10. Because some people might be frustrated with Evernote and looking for alternatives. I think that's fair game. If we were on a forum devoted to the Atlanta Braves and someone wanted to compare them to another team, that would be reasonable. Same thing but with software.
  11. Yep. I'm over 2 weeks in with offline syncing and it's still not done. I don't have that many notes. Not like some folks.
  12. This is IT in a nutshell! I read the Medium piece from the product designer and even posted it in the forums. The issue with v8 isn't because we hate change. There will always be people who hate the new paint color. This is about coming home to find that walls have been removed and now your house slants a little making all the doors difficult to open and close. I'm not mad about the paint. And yes there will always be bugs when you use new software, but this is above and beyond, and I think anyone can see that. I have to assume they are working hard on a new version, but would it kill someone on that team to take two minutes and say, "Hey folks, we are burning it at both ends to fix x, y, and z. Update imminent." Just a tiny morsel of transparency. So update...still slow on iPhone6, if it responds at all. Sometimes it just dumps me out to the home screen. Still waiting for offline notes. Should be done by October at this rate. I'm starting to think that the offline syncing is impacting the rest of the application. Just a hunch.
  13. Very interesting Medium post from Kara Hodecker on the design of the iOS app. https://medium.com/evernote-design/redesigning-evernote-for-ios-2c72d8dce419#.y85fhud2k I think it's important to be reminded that there are real people behind the products we love. With that said, I find the following (about v7) very shocking: Is this what happened for v8?
  14. Just finished reading this article: http://www.theverge.com/2017/3/2/14785264/evernote-replacement-bear-app I've heard Bear mentioned a couple times. I'm not saying I'm migrating to it or anything, but they do have an Evernote import tool. I downloaded it for my phone and thought I might play around with it. I thought others might like to check it out. If you're currently using it, I'd love to know what you think.
  15. Yep. I understand it's supposed to take a while, but I have notifications on and app refresh in background turned on and it's been...maybe a week or so. When I goto the Notebooks screen and just wait there, it looks like maybe something is trying to happen. I see a spinner in the bar at the top of the phone. I'm on an iPhone6 and still seeing crashes too. Honestly, every time I open and resume the app it either hangs for several seconds or boots me back to the home screen.
  16. I've noticed the formatting on several notes just disappear. I had a note with separate lines and a note link in it. It's been turned into a long string of text. Oh and bonus, I just noticed that it took the tags and added those to my note as text. I went back to Note History and was able to pull an older version. Including a before and after. This is very, VERY, frustrating. I'm sorry but I purposefully avoid Evernote betas to avoid situations like this.
  17. Might I suggest Note Links creating like a table of contents or index to the other notes. I use this all the time for things like tax time. I have a Tax Time Checklist for every year and all of the entries in that checklist are note links to the specific documents (W-2, 1099, etc.).
  18. This has not been my experience. Even with background app refresh on, all of my notebooks have a little indicator bar on them that never seems to go anywhere. I had to turn off downloading notes again.
  19. Feature Request: The ability to filter by Tags and Reminders in Search Results. For example, I used to have one Saved Search for all my Bills. I would then filter by Reminder to see the ones that are still unpaid. I get around this now by using two different saved searches. This is normal behavior in the other clients, so I don't think I'm requesting anything strange like asking you to add a widget that feeds my dog. If I open a Saved Search in the Windows client that say pulls back all my bills, I can then filter further by individual tags like credit, mortgage, etc. Would be nice to have here. You already have the filtering in place within the NoteList and the Notebooks.
  20. Bug (sorry if it's already been reported): Saved searches return a count of "0 Notes". I've tried all my searches.
