  1. I can use Evernote without an internet connection at least on my Mac. Versions for mobile devices always needed an internet connection or you had to use local notebooks. I don't see a difference to earlier versions.
  2. I normally leave Evernote running all time on my MacBook. However, on the rare occasions that I newly started the app I had the same experience. In that case it helps to stop and re-start the application. Apart from that I am quite happy with the performance on my MacBook Pro. Only the iOS app on my older iPad Air 2 is slow but performance has improved as well on this platform. I also use the Web app and after a long time I am now very happy with this because now all platforms look alike and features have been added much faster recently.
  3. I think its a server rather than a client issue. Yesterday I added several notes with the same tag. It took hours until they appeared in a search for the tag on all clients I use.
  4. Yes, I have the same serious problem. It either takes a very long time after adding a tag the note appears in the search for this tag or it never is found. I hope it is a temporary problem and gets solved soon.
  5. Yes the Home feature is nice. But I also had some annoying problems: I added some notes with tags in the iOS app. About half of them don't appear in a search for the tag in all clients (iOS, Mac, Web) When using the iPad sideways (horizontal) I cannot use the menu which opens after clicking "+", e.g. for adding an attachment. It is covered by the keyboard. When closing the keyboard it disappears as well. It only works for the vertical orientation of the iPad.
  6. Yes, search is completely broken on Mac and in the Web App. I hope it is fixed soon because Evernote is now almost useless.
  7. Hi I think the problem is that a note cannot be sent to the E-Mail address that is used with Evernote. Try to send it to a different address.
  8. Move all other notes into a new notebook, because I think you also cannot move it to a different notebook Delete the notebook with the remaining note. If it is the default notebook you have to configure another notebook as default notebook Rename the new notebook to the one you just have deleted
  9. I still cannot use it on my iPad Air 2. It takes too long to start and much too long to switch notes. It actually seems to get worse. Terrible. The same happened to the android version on my phone. I am now down to one platform, the legacy version on my Mac. I might soon switch to another solution because I don't expect a solution soon. The slowness seems to be platform related and I don't think there will be a solution. Sad.
  10. Unfortunately, the print problem remains the same with Evernote Web Version 10.4.2.
  11. I think this has been addressed but the ENEX-Format does not provide enough information to recreate the links in Joplin. I don't know whether other apps like OneNote are able to do this when importing ENEX files from Evernote. And no, I have not tested Nimbus because I also need either a Linux client or a Web access as with Evernote because my work platform is Linux. But thanks for the tip.
  12. Yes, this is the same in the current Web version where it was implemented quite some time ago. In previous versions you could use a right click to edit the link. The current way is awful. A link should always need one click only to follow. I don't know any other application or Web-page where a double click is necessary.
  13. I also had this problem. The only way is to delete the old checkboxes and create new ones.
  14. Yes, I also lost images and PDFs by using the new iOS client. I uninstalled the iOS client from my iPad. Currently, I am only using the Mac client (old version) and the Web client which also works in Safari on my iPad. I have absolutely no trust in the new versions. If this is not getting better soon I will switch to Notion.
  15. I agree. It really would be nice if all search capabilities were available in all clients in a uniform way by means of the user interface. But this never has been the case and the knowledge of the syntax gave me the opportunity to use the search in the same powerful way on all platforms. Since it became natural to me I doubt that I will change this event if the user interface provides a fully featured search.
  16. I agree and what really concerns me is that performance now is an issue on all platforms when switching to the new versions. I see the same lag on my Mac, under iOS and also in the Web version which always was the most direct view of the Evernote database. I'm afraid that this is a platform problem rather than a client problem and if this is not solved soon it could kill the company.
  17. Yes, I know I can see my notes via iCloud.com. But the editing features in the browser are very limited and not sufficient for me.
  18. Sorry, but I have to disagree. Version 10.2.2 (in the newest Firefox) still only prints the first page of the note and a second empty page.
  19. I agree with the reasons for your decision to switch. However, Apple Notes would not be a solution for me. I need a web client to be able to access my notes without the need to install a client application. For a long time I used the old version of the web client when Evernote started to re-create the Web client. They actually used the Web client to test out new features of their new platform like the new search etc. However, it took quite a long time for me to switch to the new version because they remove features from the old version that I needed. But for quite some time now I can use the new Web version, and I am quite happy with it. Currently, I cannot use Evernote on my Mac because the performance is very bad but I hope this will be fixed. I can still use it on my Android phone which is also important. I like that I do not depend on a specific platform and a proprietary format. After all ENEX is XML and many other applications can read it.
  20. I always used the search syntax of Evernote. Over time Evernote several times changed the way to use client features for search and these features in most cases did not provide the full power of the syntax. I didn't bother with these. I learned the search syntax once more than 10 years ago and use it ever since. But one statement you made is true. "stack:" is not documented and it was not in 2012 when I put the syntax in a note which I just now checked. I am using "stack:" frequently but I cannot remember when I discovered it. Anyway, I would recommend learning the syntax. It is not too complicated but provides the full power of search on all platforms.
  21. Yes, Joplin is interesting. I tried it using WebDAV sync on my Synology NAS. But I found a number of problems which at this moment are showstoppers. The Evernote import does not recreate internal note links. These links are still pointing to notes in the Evernote database. I would have to re-create all internal links which is impossible. I had serious problems with syncing. All attachments in the imported notes had conflicts and many notes could not be synced at all. And since I am using my notes on different devices this is important for me. But this could be due to the installation on my NAS and might not be Joplin's fault. There is no Web client. This is the biggest problem. The web client allows me to access my data on any computer without an installation of a client.
  22. Well, because the different clients always used different convenience methods for using tags in searches I never used them. Instead, I am always using the pure search syntax like "notebook:Projects tag:Project1 -tag:completed" etc. In that way I am not relying on another way a client supports for tag handling. I just had to learn the syntax once about 10 years ago.
