  1. Yes, you can modify how the pdf displays but you have to do it note by note. In the legacy version I can tell it to display all pdf's a certain way. I literally have thousands of pdfs in my evernote files. I cannot configure them all individually. I want them to "display as attachments" rather than seeing their content. So far, can not accomplish this with v10.
  2. I've invested years in Evernote and intend to keep it so long as it is working and it allows me to use the legacy version that I currently enjoy. In the meanwhile, I am doing frequent downloads of the enex files and have even verified that these work well in the Joplin app. This gives me a Plan B if everything goes south. Overall, I have faith in Evernote even though I'm still a little perplexed at how they could have thought that their new version would replace the legacy one. I've read all of their statements and I understand their thinking and the logic behind it. I also understand tha
  3. One issue which may be relevant is how secure is Joplin? Evernote is a large company and has accountability to its paying and non-paying members. Not sure if Joplin provides the same level of security. Many Evernote users have private and financial information within their Evernote notes. May be of concern to some. Other than that I looked at Joplin and it looks quite good. Personally, I'm planning to keep copies of my Enex files in Gdrive and then migrate to Joplin only if it becomes neccessary.
  4. So about a month ago I tried v10 windows desktop and I posted an observation that there was no way to set all of the notes to display pdf's as attachments (as opposed to having to see the entire pdf). I realize that I can take individual pdf's within a note and shrink them down to an icon, but it seems as if there is no way to set this as a preference. Since nearly all of my notes have pdf's it has caused an excessively busy look in which nearly the entire page is taken up with the pdf image. At the time I thought this was merely a fluke that would be quickly ironed out, but I see that the
  5. RomanSem, What is your legacy version? Mine is 6.25 but another user reported his was 7.14. Just curious if we all have downloaded different legacies.
  6. Mr. Toad, I'm a bit confused as to how your Evernote Legacy is 7.14.1 because my legacy version is 6.25. Is yours the desktop version? I thought that there was only one version of the legacy evernote and that there would be no further changes to it.
  7. I noticed that they do not seem to be offering the v10 update anymore on their usual update mechanism. When I go to "check for updates" is says that I am using the latest version. I realize that I could bypass that but I thought it was interesting because on my other computer (also win 7) it did give me the option to do the update a few days ago. I did it, didn't like it and returned to legacy.
  8. I looked at it and am more confused than ever. Essentially he is saying that they knew that power users would be slammed by this, but that overall the changes would make the 5 platforms work better together. It's like a country western band telling their most loyal fans that they are converting to rap to increase market share and profits. I understand what he is saying but surely there must have been a more nuanced way of doing this.
  9. Yes, I have to say that I'm kind of stunned. No one has been more of a fanboy for Evernote for the last 10 years than myself. I use it 50X a day and it revolutionized the way I do absolutely everything. I no longer deal with paper of any kind. I run my business with EN, organize my life through it, use it for all my research projects, store countless files in it etc etc. Evernote for me is like Amazon or Gmail ie: an absolutely fundamental part of my life. So I must admit that I'm a bit confused by why all of this is happening but I have faith in the company overall. I am assuming that
  10. I never knew that right clicking the little icon in the tray on Evernote Legacy would bring up a menu of options. I've been using EN for 10 years and never knew this (was it available before?). Which begs the question, are there other little tricks and things that I don't know about? Is there some kind of comprehensive manual or instructions anywhere?
  11. Yes, I have the same question. Actually it would be much better for Evernote if they could reassure us on this topic. I do not want to switch from EN! I do not want to start scrambling to find a new product that does not fit my needs as well as EN did. So, if I have at least 6 months or more I would be happy to just wait and see what they come up with. If after 5 months I'm not happy I can switch to something else. As far as I can tell, Evernote legacy is fine for my needs even though not perfect.
  12. I made the mistake of upgrading to EN10 on my window 7 desktop and then went back down to "Evernote Legacy". However, I now find that my web clipper is gone. I followed the tip above and was able to bring up the webclipper dialog box by using the "tilde" key; however, this is not the same thing as clicking the windows key+Prt Scrn and being able to clip out anything I want. Does anyone know how to do that? I must be missing something obvious. Also, is there a way to use web clipper when using the web version?
  13. I fully expect some preferences to follow (hard to see how they wouldn't have any), but I am still stunned that they would put out this new version with no preferences!! Anytime I upgrade any program or app that I use, I rush right to the preferences to fine-tune my personal experience. This would be for windows, android, ipad etc. Is there anyone in the world who doesn't do that? On the previous version you could set preferences for sync, navigation, notes, search, shortcut keys, reminders, clipping and printing. It's the first place I go to whenever I set up Evernote on a new device.
  14. Thanks for the input Mike; however, this only works for one pdf at a time. In the previous version there was a preference setting by which all of the pdfs in all of the notebooks were able to be viewed as "attachment" . Since this new version has no preferences I don't see how to do this for the thousands of pdfs that I have. I assume that that functionality will come otherwise it will be extremely cumbersome.
  15. It's mystifying that the company doesn't step in at this point and start explaining what's going on. Most of us are perfectly capable of waiting for a few months for this version to improve and we can forgive some early stumbles; but the radio silence from Evernote is bizarre. I have been with Evernote since their very first day and am as a big a fan boy as they come. I am not a techie but I consider myself a power user when it comes to Evernote. However, when I saw the new version I thought that I must have made a mistake and downloaded something else. I spend over a half hour looking fo
