  1. I'm finding the Nimbus client fine on Win10 - loads in a couple of seconds and is responsive enough to be pleasant to use. It's pretty much identical to the web client in features and performance. There's nothing wrong with Electron as a platform - like most frameworks is mainly down to how well you implement it.
  2. Me too. Picked up a good lifetime deal on AppSumo. It has pros and cons compared to EN, but the pace of development is far faster, the app is responsive and fairly stable, and it's getting the job done. The main drawback is the limited export, but sorting that is on the roadmap so I've decided to take the risk.
  3. The docs could be better organised for sure, but you can usually find what you need if you dig around. The basic search syntax is here: https://nimbusweb.me/s/share/4714782/9sfhm4v3k1aa1f9r1pxy The advanced search syntax is here: https://nimbusweb.me/s/share/4714775/hrg4wm64mwuu9461mlax
  4. There's a very attractive Lifetime Deal for Nimbus on AppSumo right now: https://appsumo.com/nimbus-note/ Presumably to tempt EN users away after this upgrade fiasco? Took a good look at it today, and there are enough advantages over Evernote that I'm making the move. In particular, you can nest folders. Note browser is excellent. Clipper is excellent. Search syntax is at least as powerful. Good note-to-note linking. You can format your editing with Markdown for rapid text entry, but get WYSIWYG viewing. Nice table feature. Nice integration with Google Calendar and lots of other apps
  5. Google for "Install an older version of Evernote" and download. On Win 10 Pro Evernote didn't appear in the "Add or remove programs" list - yet another irritation. So I installed the old version over the top. My old shortcut was still launching version 10. So I deleted the shortcut and found the Legacy version in c:\Program Files (x86)\Evernote\Evernote Legacy\ I launched the .exe and created a new shortcut. It's working OK for now and playing nice with the clipper.
  6. Yet when I attempted to email my comments directly, they directed me to the forum. And when you do post on the forum they don't bother to react. And they even cut off the chat. This is not a healthy sign. Customer-friendly companies engage actively with customers who are making the effort to give them feedback. It very much feels like a group of developers who have lost touch with their customers and withdrawn into their bunker. I've got a nasty feeling about this and am preparing a bolt-hole. This is more than a slip-up - it's deeply incompetent. Not helped by the fact t
  7. Thanks for the tip - I wasn't seeing that menu. Looks like you have to set it up manually. You have a number of columns there that I wasn't using. HIdden features are not good features. Can't check - I've given up on this release and downgraded. The 8 second lag when I move a note from one book to another is enough to make the release unusable on its own.
  8. Yet another egregious bug in 10.1.7 - this is becoming surreal... Ok - when I right click on a Stack or Notebook in the navigation pane I'm not getting a drop down menu - nothing happens. (My mouse is working fine) So I looked in the file menu for a rename option - nothing there. So I tried F2 - the old rename shortcut. The docs say it should still work in 10+, but nothing happens. So as far as I can tell, there is literally no way to rename any item in the navigation pane. Words cannot express ... I note that when I click the Attributions item in the Help menu nothin
  9. Another very disgruntled long-time user here - I've literally been with Evernote since it was a little desktop app. This feels more like Alpha software - how it was released in this state is unfathomable. It's bad enough that I genuinely think it might kill the company unless they move really fast to fix things - this might go down in software folklore as a $billion mistake! In addition to the lack of a sync button, the missing notebook counts, the missing Preferences, the weird keyboard combination to delete a note, the missing editing shortcuts and the missing right click menu on t
  10. I was upgraded to 10.1.7 today. It appears to be a disaster. 1) I have an inbox with 3000 notes I need to file. Dragging a note from the inbox browse pane to a folder takes around 8 seconds. Any other action I do during this time is ignored. Most notes are just small images or plain text. In the old client this action took a fraction of a second. 2) If I multi-select notes and try to drag them to a folder as a group, only the actual note dragged is moved - the other selected notes are ignored. In the old client, dragging a group of notes worked. 3) Everything is horribly sluggish
