I made the mistake of updating to the latest version this morning when Evernote informed me of the "new" Evernote for Windows.
I happened to visit a note with a reminder and now I can't use the desktop app. It hangs as soon as it starts up. If I re-launch, it just hangs again. It's dead. I logged out before viewing my notes folder and back logging in. Still hangs. I have rebooted my laptop. No joy.
So I opted to use the we interface. OK, I can now look at my notes. I use the free version so I had to switch from the Windows desktop app as my 2nd device to the browser on my PC being my second device.
Next I open a note in which I have encrypted text. The note spacing/formatting is all off with all kinds of extra line feeds before every encrypted text field. Every note with encrypted text is completely "jumbled". If I "view" some encrypted text field in one of these notes, I can't edit away the formatting issue. So I permanently decrypt one of these encrypted fields. Sure enough, I can get rid of the extra line feed. So, now I try to encrypt that text again. I find out that encrypting text is a no go on the web version. And then I come to find that you can't encrypt "yet" with the new Windows app either! Can't yet? Why is encryption a feature that didn't make it into the first release? You can view encrypted text, but you can't encrypt text? So, when will it be added back? I'm not confident of a timely timeline... if ever.
What's annoying is that even through all the scaling back Evernote has done to device counts, etc. I decided to not migrate to something else specifically because of the inter-note encryption which seems to be an Evernote exclusive and one which I use a LOT. So, maybe after all of the effort Evernote says it's put into "improving" their product, it's finally driven me to revisit migrating to another note taking solution.
