The new update is horrible. I used to recommend Evernote to everyone I met and now I'm considering not using it anymore.
I can't drag and drop screenshots effectively anymore. One main purpose of paying for evernote was the ability to copy/paste and send emails with keeping the screenshots intact. Also, no images dropped in are visible as images inside the note. I don't think it's worth paying for or using at all without this functionality.
Besides the crucial issue with images not transferring properly or being visible, here are some other major issues with the new update:
1. The minimum sidebar menu width is too large. I have many things going on in my workday and I enjoyed the solution of having minimal interference to take notes while working. It now forces "clunkyness."
2. Loading lag is horrible. It takes so long to load and often crashes, forcing me to refresh. This is very bad considering I am taking notes in meetings and important calls, missing critical note taking waiting for Evernote to reload. TERRIBLE.
3. Upon reloading, many recent notes are gone because they did not sync properly.
If you're going to Beta test an update on everyone, provide a notice confirmation before we accept the update so we can revert to the previous version if needed; OR get a new Product Manager who knows this already. I have never been so upset with an application I was so happy with for so long.
If anyone can share the previous version of Evernote for me to revert and continue my life, please do.
