  1. tried it out for a minute. seems good overall but i couldn't find the left/right navigation buttons anywhere and the same with the atlas. have these features been removed completely or will they be added back in at some stage?

    also, when did adding hyper links/note links to images get removed? ive mostly been using evernote web for the last year so i havnt noticed the change. ive reverted back to version 5.6 for now as i use note links quite a bit to get around evernote but like being able to embed the links in images instead of just having the green link text showing up. 

    nice to see some good updates anyway, thanks

  2. i have a surface pro 3 as well but people with a wacom or cintiq tablets that would be able to use the pen feature as well so hopefully evernote are taking that into account.

    even though i would much rather stick with one service i had to move a lot of my notes elsewhere over the last few years. i moved all todo list notes to todoist (before evernote added the reminder features), onenote was the only thing that had decent pen input** and also onenote lets you manually re-order notes which is very useful for ordering projects in the order ill be doing then in. it just really cracks me up thinking about all the random potshots evernote took the last few years and the amount of money they must have thrown at them, when they could have been focused on really basic things like manual ordering and pen input and whatever that still havnt been sorted out. 

    ** don't get me started the ink notes lol. its just more strange limitations as usual. only yellow background? only lined paper? ok

  3. the main reason i mainly stick to notebooks is because it requires slightly less effort than tagging. like when creating a new note on the desktop version, the notebook will automatically be selected but tagging involves 2 extra steps, clicking "add tag" or "f3", and then typing the name of the tag. when a tag is selected from the left menu and you make a new note, its created in the default notebook but the tag that was being viewed isn't added to the note. it's the same deal on android but slightly more awkward because of the screen size.

    it sounds fairly insignificant but even though ive tried tags many times i still end up adding to notebooks because its just that bit quicker and easier. i think if the process of adding tags had a bit more polish i might be able to switch.

    like having the tag list pop up on windows instead of having to type first would mean a tag could be using only a mouse. if 3 or so recent tags were listed it would make it quicker and maybe 3 suggestions/predictions, something similar to how the web clipper works. these would make it even easier on the mobile version of evernote.

    also when typing tags it just uses a basic search instead of fuzzy. why hasn't that ever been updated? for example if you want to add the tag "SomeName" and can only remember part of the name and type "Name" it wont show up... you have to type "Some" from the very beginning or else it disappears from the list. 

    there are plenty other little things about tag entry that could be improved that i wont get into but i think its all very strange when people say evernote is best suited to tag use instead of notebooks, yet evernote seems to be designed better to add things to notebooks. so something doesn't add up. even the new android widget lets you quickly add a note to a notebook, but not to a tag.

  4. after using only the web version for the last while it actually looks rather strange going back to the desktop and the default font it uses. im using a surface pro as well which doesn't help since everything is really small. 

    but it would be nice if we didn't have to go and buy the font just to have everything look the same across the different clients

  5. I find it hard to believe i have been using evernote for over two years now and they still havnt added the simple option of turning off them ugly red spellcheck lines. youd be there all day having to go through each word and click "ignore word"

    ha ha i spoke too soon, the latest update has an option to turn off the red lines! thanks, finally! it turns it off spell check completely though so right clicking a mis-spelt word wont bring up any alternative spellings, but its much better than looking at a page of red lines :D

  6. ok since ezraroan didnt get back to you with the top 2-3 features i might as well throw some out there since ive just come from using android for about a year now ;)

    1. being able to search inside the notebook that you are currently viewing
    2. add a note in the notebook that you are currently viewing
    3. the ability to use notelinks and notelinks that are in images also (at the moment if i click on a notelink it doesnt go anywhere so i cant use all my directories the way i usually do)

    ​i dont know if you could call it a feature but that splash screen doesnt really need to be there all the time does it? maybe the first time evernote opens, but it kinda defeats the purpose of having a "quick note" shortcut on the homescreen if you have to wait 2-3 second for the evernote logo to go away... it happens everytime you go back into the app as well?

    anyway coming from android, im a bit spoilt maybe, and there is a few other things i could mention here but you said 2-3 so ill leave it at that ;)
