    @s2sailor @dtwhite Apologies the release was delayed and it was just released yesterday. Can you guys check again? It should be good now. 

    Yes - it looks like it's fixed now :-). I checked it on the web beta on both a Mac and a Windows PC, and the note is now no longer getting updated when being viewed. The "updated" time stamp is therefore no longer being interfered with. Thanks for fixing it. 😀

    Note - if I decide to change the PDF format between attachment, full-preview, or page-through-preview type, then the note "updates". I'm not sure if that's intentional behaviour or not.

    @s2sailor @dtwhite Many thanks for your feedback. After investigating, we did see this issue on  the new web client where notes with PDF files attached would update the date when the user just viewed the note. We fixed the issue and it will be released next week. Would you guys be able to give the web client another try next Friday 11/15 to see if you have any further issues? We appreciate your help. Additionally, if you have seen this issue beyond notes with PDF attachments or beyond the web client please let us know.

    @s2sailor per your comment above, are you saying you experience the same issue on Mac?

    Sorry for the delay in coming back on this.

    Thanks for identifying the problem. Will check back on Friday and see if the issue has disappeared. I think what you have mentioned in the bug in question. Looking at the issue again, it does appear to be solely notes with a PDF attachment. I have a very large number of notes with PDFs, so hence I probably thought every note was impacted.

    I have not seen the issue on any other platform; solely web beta.

    I'm seeing this as well, but not with every note.  It looks like it is trying to save every note that is viewed.  In the lower right corner of the note window if I see "Saving..." then the date is not changed.  It is like it is trying to save but doesn't complete and therefore the date is not updated.  On other notes I will see "All changes saved."  On those notes the date is updated.  In both cases I am just viewing notes and not editing.  I can't tell why some notes complete the save and others don't or why they are being saved at all since I'm only viewing.

    Yes - that's exactly what I'm observing too. Just viewing a note kicks off the "saving" notification in the bottom right hand corner. It's messing up my notes; I've stopped using the web beta version until this bug is fixed. It's a shame as I'd like to give the new search features a proper test drive.

  4. I've gone in to try out the web beta a couple of times (I'm especially keen to try out the new search functionality, and I like that the web version will now show PDFs inline). However, just viewing a note (without making any changes to it) changes the note "last updated" timestamp. I always sort my notes by last updated descending, so this bug means I can't afford to use the beta web version at all for the time being. If I do, I'm going to have a pile of notes which I've just viewed at the top of my list, upsetting my organisation. 

    I'm fine with the "updated" time stamp changing if I edit a note, but it's problematic if I am just viewing a note.

    I remember there used to be a similar bug in the Windows client version a few years ago, but it's long since fixed.

  5. Good idea - I think a visual indicator is really important. 

    I recently discovered (using the shareddate:* search query) that a whole bunch of my notes were publically shared and I didn't know about it. They were notes I did not intentionally share, and was pretty shocked to realise there were publically viewable. I might have discovered the issue sooner if there was some kind of visual indicator on the notes in question that they were being shared.

    In the meantime, I have raised a ticket with EN Support to find out what bug or issue is causing the problem. One tag is common to all the shared notes, but since it's not possible to share at a tag level (and not all notes with the tag in question have been auto-shared) I don't know why it's occurring. Has anyone else experienced this?

  6. For a couple of years now I have used Remember The Milk as my task manager of choice. My annual subscription is coming up for renewal shortly, so I wanted to see what other alternatives might be out there before I sign up for another year.

    The "killer feature" of RTM for me has been it's integration with Evernote Reminders. If I add a reminder to a note in EN, it automatically becomes a task in RTM. I find this incredibly useful if I want to mark a note for follow up or an action of some type in a few days or weeks. I did try Evernote for a little while as a task manager, but it was a bit too cumbersome for that purpose, so I wanted to use something built specifically for task management. (Aside from task management, I use EN for practically everything.

    Are there any other task manager apps/systems out there which work so seamlessly with Evernote reminders? Ideally, I'd rather not have to have to use some kind of intermediary like IFTTT, but something which has a feature designed to work with EN reminders.

    Two other features I would look for would be the ability to add reminders via Siri, and an Apple Watch app, but Evernote integration is more important that these.

  7. Thank you for listening, and implementing this feature. It is already working well for me since the update.


    Much appreciated!


    Hi everyone, 


    Location tagging is now available in version 1.2 of Scannable. Just turn on Settings>Evernote>Add Location and grant permissions to use location.  Every scan you save to Evernote will also save the "location" populated in the note information based on the place you were when you hit the "Save" button.

  8. I love Scannable, in particular it's ease of use and speed. Since it was released I find myself using my desktop flatbed scanner much less, and really only for more important documents. Scannable is great for receipts and documents of lesser importance.


    However, I am finding that the resolution of text scanned on the left hand side of documents is poor. I am not sure if this is a function of my iPhone 6 camera, or Scannable itself. 


    As a test, I have captured the same document in three different ways: 1) using the stock camera app on the iPhone 2) using the document camera within the iOS Evernote app and 3) in Scannable.


    Certainly, the image saved with the stock camera app does show some signs of lesser resolution at the left hand edge, as does the EN app, it is much more pronounced in the Scannable image. Is anyone else having the same problem? Is this an issue with Scannable or my iPhone 6?

  9. One related piece of feedback: if I am in the Web Beta version of EN, and try to add tags to business cards which were captured via Scannable, it won't let me do it. The fields are locked. Non-business card documents which were captured via Scannable are fine; I can add tags in Web Beta no problem.


    Not sure if this is intentional or a bug?


    Thanks, David

  10. +1 for location tagging of items captured in Scannable. 


    Currently, one I capture a document in Scannable, I am then flicking to the Evernote iOS app, going to the note just created by Scannable, and manually geotagging it for the location I am at. It would be great to have Scannable do this automatically. 


    I would not require this outside Evernote, just for notes sent to EN.


    Other than that, as the users above state, Scannable is a great app! Thanks!

  11. I was wondering what folk think of the Touch version of Evernote for Windows 8?


    I recently got a very nice Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga which is my first experience of Windows 8 and a Windows-based touchscreen experience.


    I installed both Evernote Touch and the desktop version of EN. However, only about 20% of my notes downloaded to the Touch version, while everything downloaded to the desktop version.


    Before I invest the calories to submit a ticket and try and get the issue resolved, I was wondering what folk think of Evernote Touch for Windows 8? It is worth investing the time to use, or should I stick with the tried & trusted desktop version? EN Touch seems closest to the new beta version of EN web, with a clean interface.


    My favourite version of EN is the one for Mac which I have on my MacBook and love. The Windows Desktop is useble but not as nice an interface to work with, and I'm wondering where Touch fits in.


    Thanks, David

  12. Overall, I have no major issues with the new web UI, bearing in mind there is more functionality to come.



    I would really like to be able to view notes as cards in the new UI, not just the clipping view. I feel the card view would actually work pretty well in the redesign. Depending on how it was done, you could probably display more notes simultaneously in card view.

  13. I have noticed I have this issue with Evernote on iOS7. The flash stays on when I want to capture on image in "page" mode. There is a toggle button to turn off the flash, or to set it to "auto", but when I hit these, nothing happens, and the flash stays on. The effect of this is on certain paper types there is a white "burst" on the image. I have reverted to just taking pages in ordinary photo mode to circumvent the problem (flash turns off in normal photo mode no problem.


    Anyone else still experiencing this problem? I am running the latest version of Evernote for iOS, on an iPhone 4S.
