  1. I just looked at some other apps and they all have one thing in common with the V10 - they use the same standard web style fonts. This is one thing that I feel really set V6 apart from the others, having way more control over formatting your notes by being able to use fonts I have installed on my computer. I'm still using V6 because of this (and other reasons). I just installed the latest V10 and it's getting better but still miles away from V6. I get that one code set probably makes things easier for them and "it's what everyone else is doing" but now V10 is just another note taking application with nothing to make me want it over the rest. Evernote, at what point do you stop the bleeding? I'm paying a lot each year for this app. If V10 doesn't match V6 in features and you make it so we can't use V6 I'll have to find something else - which would really suck because of the 20 I just looked at I didn't like any of them more than V6. I find it very sad and frustrating that the company isn't giving us any kind of comment and appears to think everything is cool and people are happy. sigh...
  2. Count me in as someone who isn't happy with this update. For me it's a giant step backwards. I understand the company wanting to rewrite the application in something that makes it easier to maintain and add functionality in the future. I work with databases and have written database applications before and completely understand how good it feels to get rid of bad, old, hard to maintain legacy code in favor of new shiny stuff. What they should have done is release this version as beta and asked people to test it (I'm sure they did but it obviously wasn't ready to come out of beta). There are too many missing features and things that are very different. I have used the Send Feedback option several times to give them constructive feedback, not "you're a bunch of idiots" - that doesn't help. The overall look and feel is more like version 2, the previous version looked and felt much more professional. Another thing that is driving me nuts is the line spacing. It's about double what it was. I make my font as small as I can read so I can fit as much as possible in the window, but with V10 I can't get that much in the window. With regard to the fonts, I wish they would follow standard font sizes. The default 16 font is NOT 16 point font in any other Windows application. I could probably get used to the fonts they have chosen to give us but I want the ability to change the default font size because I prefer 14. I keep all my work on a project in a bullet list under that days date. Often I'll press shift-enter to get to a new line but stay on the same bullet. I have my font size set to 14, but after I press shift-enter the font goes back to 16. Same with inserting text between two paragraphs where everything is 14 - the new text goes back to the default. It didn't do this on the previous version. I just re-installed 6.25 and didn't realize how much better it is. I really hope Evernote is listening to all of this. In my opinion they should go back to 6.25 being the current version and put this version back into beta letting people help them test it, then release it back to everyone when they have added the needed features. I understand they ARE working on adding back a bunch of the missing features, but they shouldn't have been missing from the start. And it's perfectly ok for a company to say, "Sorry, we thought this version was ready but it's obviously not, we goofed. We're going back to the previous version and will let you know when this is ready." That's hard but better than not saying anything and letting long time loyal users get more and more upset. I do love Evernote and have used it a TON for a long time. I can't imagine NOT using it! Fingers crossed something good happens with Version 10 really soon - be that a major update with all the missing features or a rollback.
  3. How do you go back to 6.25? I can't find a download link anywhere. I have used the Send Feedback option to send them many comments. I've also tried hard to have it be constructive feedback, not "you're a bunch of idiots", that doesn't help at all. Count me as someone who's not happy with this new version, it's a giant step backwards in my opinion. I'm hoping they are listening to everything we are saying and will either update this version to have all the missing things or realize they made a mistake with this version and roll back to the previous version.
