  1. Agree with OP, especially features I don't need. As I posted on another thread maybe one day on Windows they will: - Add the URL back when you Send a Copy of a Note - Allow scrolling as one reads a note - Allow going backwards when one is in Presentation mode and just generally make it usable - Stop stalling all the the time during searches and syncing - Go back to the way PDFs worked better - better way to capture a stylus the way OneNote does And add highlighting to the Web version I hope other companies will take note. I use Quicken and lots of users there are complaining about bugginess that never gets fixed. And AskLeo wrote about this called Microsoft, We Deserve Better: https://newsletter.askleo.com/ask-leo-728-microsoft-we-deserve-better/
  2. I feel the same way. Yes, maybe there is hope.

  3. I try to limit downloading Evernote versions since they are buggy. I am currently using 6.7.6.7584. It doesn't run well. Which version should I download that is more similar to this but isn't so buggy?
  4. Just bumping it up if someone can help. Like right now, it won't stop trying to sync even though I've turned off all my sync settings (I prefer to manually sync).
  5. I had liked Version 6.5 until they forced us to upgrade to 6.7. I hate it because when I do searches of even 4 letters, it says "Not Responding" for sometimes as long as 30 seconds. And it syncs all the time even though I've turned syncing off. Any suggestions for what is going on? Or is there a clean version I should upgrade to that doesn't destroy the PDF capabilities?
  6. I will chime in, and hopefully people can respond on which version I should update to. My issue with Evernote is that I HAD a usable Windows PC product, and it has become progressively less usable, despite me paying yearly subscriptions for it. I had settled on 6.5 for fear of upgrading. But then we all had to upgrade to 6.7 and I have so many problems. I can't tell you the number of times a day where I do to do a simple 4 letter word search and it says, "Not Responding" for more than 30 seconds. I still have never figured out how to go back in Presentation Mode, and a few other things. I am still not happy that when you E-mail notes, the URL doesn't get E-mailed anymore. And so forth. And one the more recent versions, where the PDF handling got changed. And the newest version of Chrome Webclipper conflicts with other extensions I have (e.g. any.do). If anyone has suggestions on which Windows PC version to move to, I'd appreciate it. But these are all the reasons I'm upset with Evernote and upset with the price increases and not surprised by the news in this article.
  7. I used Send a Copy a lot too, with the E-mail having the note title as the subject line, and all attachments inlcuded. My only beef is that it used to also include the URL of the note, but for several years now, it no longer does.
  8. Actually, if you merged them and they came out in the wrong order, you can go to your Trash and find the individual notes, restore then, and select them in a different order.
  9. I was very happy to see this because I too am fed up with Evernote releases being so busy, randomly taking out features, and just having sub par performance. Like the highlighting inconsistently I mentioned in another thread, the fact presentation mode doesn't have a "Back" in the Windows version, all the issues with PDF, that emailing notes doesn't include the URL anymore, and yet we continue to see price increases. I'm really glad the market has spoken and hope the new management cleans up the software. Any way for me to get the reduced Premium pricing? I renewed in May.
  10. Yes, me too! I just logged out, and now I can't log back in (says it can't connect to server). Please don't tell me I have to upgrade since everything is broken going forward (e.g. PDF files view, etc) What do I do to get back into this Evernote?
  11. Does anyone know if this issue with blank lines was every resolved? I use Version 6.5.4.4720 since I'm too afraid to update due to too many bugs.
  12. Thanks for replying. I do read a lot of PDFs too, but then I have to go through a process to extract the highlights so they are in the body of the note. Whereas other articles, it's right there. I use a reader called XoDo, so maybe I should tell them they should try to figure out how to read Evernote.
  13. Long time Evernote user, though of recent, frustrated with increasing prices, buggy releases, and loss of features without warning or comment. Evernote is where I store most of my reading. I may read it with Pocket or Acrobat, but in the end, it goes to Evernote. For some longer pieces, I start in Evernote. One of my difficulties is a good way to both read in Evernote and highlight. The problems with: Evernote for Windows: No easy way to scroll via touch, have to use mouse; hitting arrows to scroll up and down often throw it off Evernote for Web: Great touch features for scrolling up and down, but no highlight Evernote for Android: Also great for scrolling, but to highlight, one must Edit, lose half the screen for the keyboard, and then highlight Anyone find any better ways to read and highlight
