  1. Fan runs full speed!

    This is definitely excessive. Did you just make an update to Evernote? Sometimes there can be a brief period where CPU usage is high while Evernote is recreating indexes it needs. If it continues, I would: Restart your Mac, then start Evernote, and examine CPU usage. If high usage continues, then you can try a simple app reinstall: Move the Evernote app to the trash (this should not affect your data) Download the version you want Install Evernote. If it still continues high usage, then the next step is major surgery: See How to Completely Remove and Reinstall EN Mac If you are uncomfortable with any of that, or have questions, please post before you take any actions. Good luck, and let us know how it goes.
  2. Evernote for Mac 6.13.1 GA

    Definition of "Rare Bug": A bug that bites others but not me. LOL Just having a little fun.
  3. Evernote for Mac 6.13 GA

    You might try either of the following: Update to the latest version: Evernote for Mac 6.13.1 GA Reindex your Search Index. Hold down OPT key Goto Help Menu > Troubleshooting > Recreate Full Text Search Index
  4. Help needed! Cannot search my old notes

    If the suggestion by @DTLow doesn't fix your issue, post back here and I'll provide instructions to downgrade to Ver 6.11.1.
  5. Search bar in latest Evernote for Mac Update - ver 6.13

    I agree. The space in Ver 6.11.1 is great, and it expands/reduces as you increase/decrease the width of the window:
  6. Evernote for Mac 6.13 GA

    I think you can blame Apple for this. Apple has imposed more severe restrictions on apps put in the Mac App Store that what will actually run on a Mac. This is the reason that many developers do not put their app in the App Store.
  7. Evernote for Mac 6.13 GA

    @Chantal Leonard, first I'd like to thank you for the very quick response to our comments. I really do appreciate this. Unfortunately, things get a bit negative from here. What I don't understand is why you would release a partial set of fixes as a GA release? Why not issue another Beta, so everyone would know there might still be bugs? I don't think you guys seem to understand our, your customers, perspective. We expect a production release (GA), to not have any material bugs (some minor bugs perhaps, but nothing material). But we especially expect you to NOT release a product with major sync bugs. Do you understand this? Why do you guys feel like you must issue production releases so quickly? Until you guys start releasing a production build with no material bugs, I cannot in good conscience recommend Evernote to my friends and colleagues, or really, to anyone. Well, I think nearly everyone would like to reduce sync conflicts. However, I suspect that many, including myself, strongly disapprove of your method of immediate, constant syncing. This seems more like a bandaid than a solution. IAC, if the user has a preference of a sync interval of "none", then you should honor that. Or for that matter, you should honor whatever interval the user has chosen. Ironically, you're new method seems to be causing apparent sync conflicts in EN Mac. Have you seen the reports? Sometimes, there are several good reasons to NOT sync immediately. Syncing is very different from local saving. So yes, I want to save very frequently. But there are times when I am making major, large changes to a Note that I do NOT want to sync until I am finished. Do you understand that? Adding insult to injury, you made these sync changes, and then completely removed the sync interval preference, without so much as a word in the Release Notes / forum post. How do you explain that? How do you justify it? Are you trying to hide it from us? In case it not obvious, this kind of behavior make us distrust you. The behavior of the Evernote Development team over the last few months has been more like that of a disorganized startup who thinks the only important thing is to be first out of the gate. It is very disappointing, and very discouraging. Please slow down your development/release cycle, and start once again producing a high-quality product that we can rely upon, that we can trust our life's memories with, that we can trust or most critical business ideas with.
  8. Color Code Note Titles

    AFAIK, it is not possible today to apply any formatting to the Note Title. However, you could do this: Insert this character at the start of the Title: ❗️ Assign a Tag of "BestMatch" or "Match.Best" or whatever tag name makes sense to you. Then a quick click/selection of that tag will filter the list for you. You could assign this tag when you add the Note to Evernote. If you are a Mac user, you could write a simple AppleScript, based on some criteria (like keyword in the title or body) to: Assign one or more tags Insert this character at start of Title: ❗️ Questions?
  9. Evernote for Mac 6.13 GA

    Yes, Evernote has had a new CEO, Chris O'Neill, for over two years. So let's focus on his statements and promises. Directly from Evernote CEO Chris O'Neill on 2015-09-29: Perhaps we should all start emailing Mr. O'Neill, respectfully sharing our issues, our view, and what we would like to see happen.
  10. Evernote for Mac 6.13 GA

    That's good, but . . . WHY have you been releasing production GA versions that you know have these sync bugs???? While we all want to get fixes to the buggy Ver 6.13 GA that you just released, please focus on bug fixes, forget about new features for now, do your job and properly test a build BEFORE you make another GA release. I can not have any confidence in an Evernote product that has sync issues. How many times must we repeat: "Sync is a core Evernote feature, and MUST be rock-solid".
  11. Evernote for Mac 6.13 GA

    ATTN: @Evernote: ( @Chantal Leonard, @Johnathan Hebert, @Jason Miller ) You guys must have a very unusual project/team organization. I would expect those Evernote employees who are responding publicly in forums like this to be in a communication role, with direct access to the dev team. This would enable the EN forum responders to get information about, and respond to any issue posted here. But that's just my thoughts. There are many ways to organize a project, and I don't pretend to tell you how, nor do I really care, as long as Evernote provides quick, clear responses to our questions/issues posted here. @Evernote, I don't know if this is what is happening or not, but I can tell you that it certainly appears like that to me as well. Let me put it like this: Surely it is clear to Evernote, as it is to your users, that the current development/release process you are using is NOT working very well. How can you possibly approve of, be proud of, releasing such a buggy product, adversely affecting millions of users???
  12. Evernote for Mac 6.13 GA

    Well, it is quite impressive that so far only negative posts have been made about the release of 6.13 GA. It appears we can't down-vote this topic, but we can express our displeasure by selecting the "sad" emoji at the bottom right of the OP: I don't know that this will help, other than to notify future readers that we have found issues with this release.
  13. Evernote for Mac 6.13 GA

    How could you not make a comment about the numerous, very serious, sync issues???? Didn't we make it very clear how critical and important that issue is to us in the numerous Beta threads????
  14. Evernote for Mac 6.13 Beta 3 Released

    I don't see any disrespect on Evernote's part. They made a design decision, perhaps a bad one, but one they thought was correct at the moment. OTOH, you are being disrespectful. If you want respect from others, then you must show them respect, even if they don't at first. Don't confuse disagreements or differences of opinion with respect. Unfortunately, that seems to be what is happening today all over the world. If you disagree with Evernote's design decisions (which I sometimes do), then tell them, tell us, that you do, and why. Tell all what problems their design decisions cause you, how it impacts your workflow. Unfortunately, you may have to repeat, or restate, or clarify your issues from time-to-time, before a change is made that you want. Sometimes, you may have to wait a long time. Sometimes you may never get the change you want. Then you have a decision, as we all do, either accept the current design, or switch to a product that provides the design you want. IAC, please be respectful to your fellow users, and post your off-topic discussions elsewhere. Thanks.
