  1. specific features? how about: maintaining data integrity - EN constantly overwrites newer files in shared documents. This is a huge problem. offering proper backups - backups used to be easy a number of years ago. And given the frequent loss of data is critical. sharing of documents with basic users - Sharing is the #1 reason I have paid for EN premium for as long as I have. No longer can a premium user share an editable document over 20MB with a basic user. It exceeds the maximum note size and can't be editable. This is a recent change for the worse. lack of a cohesive user interface - sharing a folder/document is inconsistent and different every time they update. In another example, I couldn't find where they had moved the file history feature which I needed due to old files overwriting new files (big sync issues with EN lately). One day its in note info, the next its in a dropdown menu elsewhere ...It changes literally every update and this is very disruptive to my workflow. Also, documentation on the website is so out of date it's to solve these things. There are lots of other features but these are just a few of the more important core features that EN used to do well but no longer does. The loss of these features makes EN far less collaborative and this adversely affects the workflow. As a paying premium user for over 11 yrs, its sad seeing the decline in quality and usability ....
  2. IMO, evernote has gone from a useful tool that was great for groups to one that is no longer useful for that purpose. As someone who has used EN for ~12yrs they keep making crazy changes that don't make a lot of sense. The desktop clients have become extremely unfriendly to use and everything has been moved with poor documentation (most of it is out of date) on where they went. Sharing, notebook backups, etc.... Then there is the matter of file attachments constantly disappearing in shared notes. Shared notes in particular used to be a great innovation that made my life easier. Sharing notes with students worked wonderfully well. Now students cannot even edit the notes if the files size is greater than 25MB. So as a premium user I have to limit my files sizes to 25MB if I want them to make edits. All the documentation states that the files size is limited by the creator which should mean 200MB (according to what they claim). According to online chat support their interpretation is now that if you share a note with someone, they become the creator which puts the cap to 25MB. Support could not offer documentation on this but that's what they insist. Lots of poor documentation and shady changes to their business policy. Not sure how they will survive like this for much longer with strong dissatisfaction with long time customers.
  3. No - this isn't possible any more. Exporting individual notes is still there with the 3 dots but exporting a notebook is not. Also related to this is the extremely annoying downgrade where you can no longer create shared notebooks. You can share individual files but the share a notebook feature is no longer present in the newest Evernote. This still works in older version as well as iOS.
  4. I totally agree with all these comments. The lack of back-up options is VERY bad and makes me very nervous to trust my data. I for one will be looking for other options if this isn't fixed soon .....
  5. Long time user (10+ years) here as well. I've had "conflicting changes" problems for many years now despite the fact that this is a 4 year old thread so the problem hasn't gone away. Most of the problems I see are in files within shared folders. I share folders and files in a mixed Mac / PC environment and when when different users (mostly PC users) edit or change attachments within the document the file creates a conflicts that then have to be manually fixed. It doesn't always happen but is frequent enough that it has been a problem. A second, possibly related issue is that newer files are frequently overwritten by older files. Again, this appears not to be an issue with folders shared with mac users but only Windows users. Whatever the reason for these incompatibilities in shared files and conflicts, this has been a long standing issue that hasn't been resolved by software updates. Manual syncing partially fixes some of the issues.
  6. Some of my notes have images that cannot be resized. Instead of being able to grab the corners I get a magnifying glass. Very inconsistent. Behavior. Also having lots of issues with images not being able to be edited and saved when opening externally in preview. It used to work fine. :-(
  7. Downloaded 7.10 beta and still having copy/paste issues. Paste by command V does not work but paste and match style by the menu does work...... Pretty frustrating.
