  1. Hello DTLow, >On iOS though we can see our tags, we cannot rename nor delete them There is Manage Tags in user settings You can delete tags, but not rename We need to be able to delete, add and rename. Is the lack of that ability a iOS hit, or a Evernote hit? >>On iOS there is not a way to export our notes to a .enex There is a .enex export for single notes in the share menu Import also works; again for single notes The important words are “Single notes”. Most folks need to import export many more than single. We can both agree as good as Evernote is their iOS offering leaves too many features missing. Very much appreciate you adding to my comments. Thank you.
  2. Many of us work primarily from a tablet, I work from iPad. There are many usability features missing from iOS that makes using Evernote extremely inconvenient. On iOS though we can see our tags, we cannot rename nor delete them. On iOS there is not a way to export our notes to a .enex On iOS there is not a way to import a .enex Those three missing feature are a tablet user’s Evernote deal breaker. Being able to work around them we must get to a computer. Many road warriors gave up on desktop computers, and as their laptops give up the ghost they are moving to tablets. I know some that gave away their laptops preferring the convenience of a tablet. Evernote’s web UI is abysmal, sorely lacking in features. Come-on Evernote, you need to put much more effort for us tablet users. Be aware, Bear and OneNote now have extremely good Evernote .enex import ability.
  3. Yes, you are correct, on my part a poor choice of words. At the time I made my comment I was thinking of the Evernote backup file, .enex. Also, I have a plethora of iWork files as well, many Numbers and Pages files, only two Keynote. For the past few years most of the folks I correspond with switched to Google office suite, thus I have been working mostly in Google Docs, Sheets, a few Slides files. As for using MS Office, only when one sends me such a file, quite rare.
  4. Hi Carr1e, Please be aware with the following I am not dissing Evernote, just explaining why I am leaving. In the past I was an extreme Evernote supporter and assisted many folks wanting to use Evernote. Yes, you most definitely looked at many more systems and programs, than I . One that appears promising is Bear, however I think it is only available for Mac. As an aside my computer life began with a Commodore 64, C/PM, MS DOS, Windows, Apple. Oops, I am dating myself. A few years my eight year old MBP died, then I moved to use a Chromebook, looking to a new MBP.In an above post quote: "...But I can't because the new version doesn't have suggested searches or the ability to multi select notes, which ALSO makes managing and searching through many notes, notebooks and tags untenable...". unquote. This comment explains much of my frustration. After many years of using Evernote and paying for their service my decision is I want all my files, scans, and the like outside a note taking app such as Evernote, OneNote, and the like. Google Keep and Apple Notes are now my quick captures, they are much quicker, easier to work with, move around in, share, and manipulate than Evernote. At one time I had ten thousands plus notes in Evernote; wow on all my devices it was slow and had issues. Went through my notes pared them down to 1,300-ish important do not want to live without notes. Much of what I deleted can easily be searched for on the web equally as fast as launching Evernote searching my own notes. I am quitting being a digital hoarder.Those 1,300-ish notes were either converted to PDF or copied/pasted into Google Docs; yes much work. Counted 140-ish are in Google Keep with all copied to Apple Notes as well. Again, both apps are faster and easier to access my files than using Evernote. Using my smartphone all my scans go to Google Drive. Wow, these smartphone scanning apps are amazing, their quality is just as good as my Fujitsu ScanSnap scanner. Oh, for Mac users in the Finder (think Windows Explorer) we can tag files the same as Evernote. With this setup when there is need to send a file I can easily send it. With my iPhone using Google Keep capture a document it will be OCR'd, converted to text as well. With Apple Notes I can scan a form sign it then return it; easy-peasy lemon-squeeze. With my files removed from Evernote into Google Drive now I can easily move my files and folders, something I could not do with the Web version of Evernote. To Keep it simple I am using the directory structure in Google Drive, it is ever much easier than my struggles of late with Evernote on the Web. Using a Chromebook there is not a Evernote app you are pointed to Evernote on the Web. On my iPad and iPhone there is an app, but I have become quite frustrated with them. Old school is where I am going; files in folders I control. With all my file outside of Evernote I am better able to do what needs to be accomplished. Also, I do not have to concern myself about what will occur with the next Evernote update, UI change, and the like. Before Evernote the Cloud as a storage medium was not much of a viable option. Today the Cloud is amazing, so much so I neither need Evernote holding all my data in their container on my HDD/SSD, nor on their servers. Oh, I do not maintain any documents, images, videos, locally, everything is on the Cloud. Regardless of any tragedy that may befall my computers my files are safe. Yes, I could go on about this issue, but it would become quite boring; if the above is, I apologize. Again, I hope you find a solution that fits you well.
  5. Hi Carr1e, Truly I understand your frustration with Evernote. Since the beginning of Evernote I have been a paid member, that will end at the end of this subscription, January 2018. Though Evernote has been a outstanding program it appears to be going down hill; feature bloat and instability, web version is exceedingly lacking. It has caused me so much frustration that the past week, almost finished, I have migrated my documents out of Evernote. May sound crazy, my Evernote documents are now all in Google Drive and Google Keep, with a few in Apple Notes. There are upsides and downsides, yet accessing and sharing my documents makes my life already better. Yes, I will miss many of the Evernote features, however they can truly be left behind. My sanity is most important. With whatever you decide to do I wish your well.
  6. Similar issue. Combining notes, will this be fixed as well? With this new UI we cannot click multiple notes that means we cannot combine notes. Very frustrating, it would be wonderful if we have the option to revert to the previous UI. Nothing against new and improved, except we are missing functions we are accustom to using, and depend on using. Using web Evernote on Chromebook, Chrome OS update 2017-02-20, version 56.0.2924.101
  7. @baldbrian, I also agree with you. Allow me to add to your request, I want to setup a default From: address as well. Scannable defaults to my @mac.com address, however I want it to default to my @gmail.com address.

    all my scans are gone

    Hi gazumped, Yes, yesterday I turned in a incident report; ticket #1994149. Being as scans are device specific, they cannot be retrieved from other devices. In the past I used to scan then later send them to Evernote; learned my lesson on that. Now after the scan immediately they are saved to Evernote. Still, they should not be removed from Recent. In Advanced settings it reads "Recents, save completed and deleted scans on this device for 7 days"; my last scan was removed in day. Turn it off scans are sent to Evernote then deleted from Scannable; mine was on.

    all my scans are gone

    Tonight the same thing happened to me, opening Scannable it behaves as thought it is the first time the app was opened, the wings flap. Today I did scans, in there were other scans in Recent. Tonight I went to retrieve the Recent scans in Scannable for sharing with others, now all my scans in Recent are gone. Last year, 2016, this same thing occurred Scannable lost all my Recent scans. Yes, the scans are in my Evernote, however I expected to see them in Scannable Recent as well. In Settings > Advanced, it reads, "Save completed and deleted scans on this device for 7 days." Sometimes Scannable removes them well before 7 days. This is becoming frustrating.
  10. Same here, mine showed 621 days. My thinking is we first must authenticate with our regular Evernote password, did that now all is good. Hope that helps you.
  11. Hello csihilling, For those using Evernote in a browser your tip is excellent. Browser version of Evernote does not provide highlighting. Text highlight on the iPad and iPhone will appear highlighted on the browser as well.
  12. Since iOS 10 update Scannable crashes upon launch and when using the app. Today, all my Recents were there, then I went to again use Scannable it asked me to log in. When I did all my Recents are gone. We have uninstalled and reinstalled Scannable, did not help the crashing. On a side note, Evernote syncs between devices, we want Scannable to do the same.
  13. With today's update I crossed my fingers hoping the circles were replaced. My choice to replace the circles with a galley list down the left side to chose from. These circles are a terrible choice, difficult to choose a note from, where a list would make it much easier. Very disappointed in this update.
  14. Check out the Scansnap iX100. http://scanners.fcpa.fujitsu.com/scansnap11/features_iX100.html
  15. Point taken and well made. I had initially found myself also typing 'loosing' but corrected it. Sadly I missed the 'loose'. I ended up googling it as I couldn't decide if I was just going mad.

Hi DaveMC, I too fat finger words. When I get called on them I slap my forehead. Yes, there is a Perminent red spot and bruse. My excuse is dirty trifocals.
