  1. Are there plans to bring back the spell check engine that can be launched with the F7 key? If not, what was the logic or reason for removing it?
  2. How about including"Evernote" in the default dictionary?
  3. Old topic but I thought I would give an update. It turns out the issue was due to the Android Wear OS app on my Zenwatch 2. Support said they were having issues and once I removed it from my watch, the update issues went away. I wasn't using it on my watch so removing it didn't have a negative impact.
  4. I started with OneNote in 2008 which at the time didn't sync across computers. I figured out how to utilize Mesh Sync (eventually became OneDrive) to sync my notebooks across PCs but often had issues with corruption of Notebooks. Then I found Evernote a month or so later. I still use OneNote as it is required for my job, but personally, I rely on Evernote. There are a lot of ways Evernote could improve to match what OneNote does, but to me, the biggest differentiators which make Evernote stand out is being able to tag notes, the search being FAR SUPERIOR to OneNote and the screen layout which is similar to how I layout Outlook. I cannot emphasize enough how easy it is to find things in Evernote compared to OneNote. Microsoft will always dominate the enterprise space because business runs on Windows and Office. However, there will always be room for niche products like Evernote that provide particular value or features that Microsoft cannot, particularly in small to mid-size business market, as well as some pockets in the enterprise. As long as Evernote stays a step ahead or has a few must-have features that OneNote doesn't, people will pay for that and they can stay relevant. If they sit back, relax and don't keep up, they will become the next Novell or Lotus Notes.
  5. An update to the "update" issue. It stopped for a while but early this morning at 4:11 AM ET 02/19/2016 I had 10 notes all change their updated times at the exact same time. 6 of the notes this time were recent, but 4 were from 8 to 11 months ago. At that time, there were no Windows systems running Evernote, not even the system tray app . Only an Android phone. I had used Evernote on my Samsung S6 earlier in the day on 02/18/2016, but at 4:11 AM on 2/19/2016 it was sitting on the charger. I am now convinced it is something in the Android app that is doing it. I wonder if there are any activity logs for the app in Android?
  6. I realize it doesn't update without input from something; that is what is so baffling about this. Looking at the access history it might be the Android client. It shouldn't have been running a couple of the days listed where I have seen this behavior but there are entries for it accessing it. As for what has been updated, it doesn't look like anything has changed. Then again, it could just be ghosts using my computer.
  7. Over the past week or so each morning when I open the current full desktop Evernote client on an x64 Win 10 system, a note dated 1 year earlier is at the top of the list and has the current date in the updated field (I sort by date updated). I have never had this issue before and it has me baffled as to what could be doing it. Today it did not occur. When I looked back there were no notes updated or created on 1/21/2015. Has anyone else experienced something like this? I am also running the client on an Android system. I use it primarily to capture docs with the camera and occasionally look up something. Jim
  8. After a full power off and restart of the iPhone 5s the ability to do the manual selection of the type of photo (doc, business card, etc.) is now presented and appears to be working. The delays in processing have also been significantly reduced. Update: Now that the feature is working, it is still more difficult to use and slower than the old method.
  9. I posted a similar response on the feedback section. I hope they will fix this. I am sure some people who have a lot of time on their hands prefer the new method. At least they could make it revert to the old method when you change from auto to manual.
  10. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE bring back the old camera capture method. I have been trying to get my wife to use Evernote for a while now and I thought the way it captures business cards would be a great start since she was complaining about how hard it is to keep track of them. I didn't realize she had updated her iPhone 4s with this latest release. I went to show her how it worked last night. After it crashed twice along with taking FOREVER to capture, then a long time to respond after the capture, her response was "I could do this a lot faster manually entering these. How is Evernote supposed to make things easier for me"? At a minimum give us the option to turn this feature on or off so we can select the type of photo again. I just updated my 5s to make sure it wasn't an issue with her older 4s. This update is clearly a mistake. It has rendered the feature useless.
  11. The build is also creating a smoothing issue on my Surface Pro 3. I need to downgrade so I can read my notes without getting a headache.
  12. It would be nice if the custom spelling dictionary would sync so when you move to a new system you don't have to remember to manually move the %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Evernote\Evernote\Dict\user.dic file each time.
  13. I ended up disabling it and can live with the small font in the title until the fix that. I hope they make the system tray pop up optional as the context feature will be very useful with how I use Evernote.
  14. How does one go about getting the previous release? The new context feature is great and will be very useful, but that pop up above the system tray bouncing up and down like a Jack Russell terrier on every other keystroke is very distracting. I tried the HKCU\Software\Evernote ShowContext reg setting at 0 but that didn't help. With that issue and the small title font, I'll wait until another release where these are addressed, but in the meantime I would like to access the previous version. Thanks.
  15. UPDATE: The 5.5.x release appears to have solved it. Not sure why I wasn't prompted to upgrade until today as I see that s2sailor above has had it since 18th of July. I am seeing this issue too. I would agree that the CPU spike is not harmful except when you are using a device running on battery. My Surface Pro 2 running Evernote when connected can go 7+ hours on battery, but if I am on a flight with no WIFI it will die after about 2 hours. One thing I have found is that I don't have to have a full connection. For example if I am on a flight that has WIFI, I can connect but not pay to access the web to keep the CPU usage low. On my full Dell E6430 laptop with an i7, it has a similar impact on battery life. The Windows 8 app doesn't experience this issue. Running on Win 8.1 Update 1 x64 on both systems. Getting ready to try the latest release that just popped up on my screen as I was typing this up.
