  1. That's also basically how I use Tabs and Favorites. In EN Legacy, I used shortcuts to have access to both frequently accessed notes and current working notes.
  2. No, I'm on Win 10. I didn't mention note tabs (and favorites) which I also like and use extensively, because in EN Legacy the shortcuts performs basically the same function. But Outline and Note Overview add a lot of value that EN Legacy doesn't have.
  3. And speaking of plugins, the two most useful ones for me are Note Overview, which is a more powerful and useful way of doing EN saved searches, and Outline, which is a sidebar with TOC items as links to help you quickly see and navigate a long note. I think the only productive EN Legacy feature that I miss is the ability to share/collaborate on notes. Even though I didn't use it much, it was very useful when I did. So EN Legacy = a fantastic product even for basic subscribers. Joplin = EN Legacy in most ways + it's being improved almost daily. And again, I say that as pri
  4. As primarily a note taker (not archiving all sorts of media, email or attachments), Joplin FTW. I was a happy Evernote Legacy user, but wanted to try something else just in case. After trying Notion, OneNote, Nimbus, Google Keep, Simplenote, I'm very satisfied with Joplin. Close enough to EN Legacy functionality (including web clipper) that it looks and feels quite familiar, plus a host of cool things not found in EN Legacy continually being developed through plugins. And the feature that made me leave EN Legacy: I can install it on all three of my main devices: PC, phone and Kindle Fire.
  5. I've used EN merely for note taking, not for archiving all kinds of attachments and media files. And after trying Notion, Nimbus, Simplenote, OneNote, and Google Keep, I'm quite happy with the switch to Joplin. Importing all my EN notes worked great, and it lets me work just as efficienty as EN Legacy did, and the deal-sealer for me was that I'm able to add my third device (Kindle Fire) without paying. So far, search works just as well and quickly for my needs. I've had to learn a bit about markdown, but actually I enjoyed that part of the transition experience. And the plugins are great.
  6. You can tell by the number of posts that I'm new and not very active here. I only signed up because I was dumbfounded by EN10 and wanted to see what others' experience was and what they were going to do. The other thing to know about me is that I'm a light user of EN. That is, I use it only to take notes and write down my thoughts, not to archive media/email/etc. But EN is still very important because my notes/thoughts are valuable to me, and it's a tool that worked very well--until the bad surprise that was EN10. Through this forum's help, I was able to download EN Legacy and I've be
  7. Agreed. It doesn't make sense to give a feature like spellcheck that can't be turned off. I can't see myself upgrading to v10 or ever purchasing a Premium plan unless this is fixed.
  8. I'd pay about $3/month ($36/year) if they got rid of the free plan. But not for v10 the way it is now. I have no idea if EN can survive if they could get a whole lot more people on the free plan to subscribe at $36/year, but that might be one option. Even if it were a slightly feature-poor plan (without the most data intensive features such as uploading scans, PDFs, emails), I'd pay $36/year if it were the only way to continue using EN the way I want. The current $7.99 then can be for the really heavy/power users.
  9. You're right to point out the distinction. But that makes it all the more critical for EN to find a product line and pricing scheme that will allow them to convert people like me to be paid users. My guess is that there are many like me who are not fans of subscription services, who like to pay once and own the product, and also many like me for whom $7.99/month is too high. So it's up to EN to make me an offer I can't resist, rather than for me to contribute $7.99/month to a company just so that they can continue to exist--especially if they're using that money to develop "upgrades" like v
  10. I don't think of EN as a charity, so no, I'm not going to contribute. If paying were the only way to be able to do what I currently do, then of course I would pay. But since free Legacy fits my needs perfectly, why would I pay? Similarly, I don't expect EN to accommodate anyone's, especially a non-paid user's needs. EN will do what it thinks is best for the company and its bottom line, as they should. And if what they decide is in line with my needs, then I will pay or upgrade or whatever. But no company should rely on people paying for something they don't need.
  11. I'm not a power user, or a paid user. I only have just over 1200 notes, all of it generated by typing since I don't do any importing of emails, receipts, documents or media of any kind, and I only need to sync 2 devices. I don't know if I'm a heavy/light user, but I do use it every single day. It's one of the 2-3 apps on my WIndows laptop that is always open and I add to existing notes or create new ones multiple times each day. It's not quite a second brain for me, but it is critically important for me to in being productive and efficient. All that to say that V10 has been the worst
  12. I agree. It's the first time I've ever rolled back to a previous version of software--and I'm not even a power user compared to many people. The only thing I miss from v10 is the dark theme.
