  1. Yeah, that's the Classic. Still the best and most functional web version. Every time I try the "new" version, within minutes I run away screaming, it's so bad. I've noticed the same issue where only the first x notes appear, and then the list is blank. I really wish they would fix this.
  2. I tried the new interface again to see if it's any better, and I still hate it. I hate the animating sliding tool bars. I hate that I can't have 2 left sidebars open...one to show the notebook list, and another to show the note list of the selected notebook. I hate the side bars sliding in and out. I hate that I can't see the borders of the notes, it just ends somewhere in whitespace around the edges. There is just so much wrong with it, I feel like it needs to go back to the drawing board. As a long time premium member, I fear that the classic interface may go away, and that would make me a former premium member. The "new" web interface is simply unusable for me.
  3. So this is a beta inside the beta? Very confusing. I wish the functionality would come to the old version of the web page, which I still use. The beta is a mess of odd animations, unintuitive tool placements, harsh color highlights, invisible margins, and too much white space. I tried it again to see the new integration, but I couldn't even figure out how to view a pdf inline like you can on the old web site.
  4. That's what I'm wondering. I've been a member for years, I have the selection, she doesn't. I think they should offer it to everyone.
  5. I am helping my daughter get set up on Evernote, so she has a new account. We can't find a way to choose the old web interface on her account. It doesn't appear in the account settings. The new UI is a usability nightmare, and nobody in my house likes it. Can we get the good interface on her account?
  6. Hey look, it's the new Evernote distraction-free ruler! Sorry, I couldn't help myself.
  7. Agree 1000% The back and forth click dance to switch notebooks is driving me crazy. Plus, if the notebooks you are switching between are low in the list, there's extra scrolling to do too since it goes right back to the top of the list every time.
  8. I concur. Most of the time I am opening Evernote to find something, not write. My default use is searching and browsing for existing notes. The new UI is geared toward writing which is like 5% of my Evernote usage.
  9. Thanks for reporting the issues, Jeff510. We definitely appreciate it when folks are able to report bugs with the features that are currently in the product. We are aware of the popup issue on Firefox and that there are currently no tooltips and will address them in future releases. As for feature requests or things you still see missing from the product please continue to put these in this forum topic if you do not already see it there: https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/76733-web-beta-release-notes-1119/ FYI, I'm using Chrome, not Firefox.
  10. Some of my issues: Pop up text toolbar obscures content. Affects ability to expand selection or see adjacent text. Have to deselect often, adding steps.Icons on pop up text toolbar have no roll over text, I don't know what a couple of them do from their icon.Can't pin the Notebook pane open. Have to reopen and find and select notebooks in a cumbersome way to toggle between notes in different notebooks. (Same with Tags pane)
  11. Trying the new one again. I guess I'm a glutton for punishment. Several new usability problems. First, I'm trying to compare two similar notes from two notebooks that are in a stack. I want to click between them. But when I select one notebook, the left side notebook pane slides away. I have to click the notebook icon, which brings me to the top of the list...scroll down to where the notebook stack is, select the other notebook and then the note after the notebook pane again slides away. It is a pain in the rump to try and toggle between two notes this way. Big UI fail that would be avoided by allowing us to "pin" the notebook pane so it doesn't disappear. Second, while writing I wanted to change the text formatting of different sections that I had pasted into the note. The only way to see the formatting options is to highlight text, and then it appears. Well, I already hate that approach because I'd like my tools to be visible all the time, and I hate the way the pop up tool bar pops up and obscures nearby content, but be that as it may, there is still a problem in that those tools don't tell me what font or size the selected text is. I want to select the paragraph below, and make it the same as the paragraph above. So how do I know the settings of the paragraph above? No idea! You get a Font and a Size dropdown, but there is no indication on there of what the current state of the selected text is! UI fail #2. Also, some text formatting options are in the pop up box after highlighting, and some are in the weird vertical dropdown list to the right of the text. That inconsistency is driving me crazy, as well as the problem I've already noted where hiding the tools is a disservice to me because I can't always remember what tools are available to me that I can't see. Also, there's items in the pop up tool bar that I can't even tell what they are for. And there's no roll-over text to tell me what the button does. Man, I hope EN is listening. Some of the old things work for a reason. Don't throw it all out just because you're trying to prove you're not stuck in an old way of doing things. Keep the parts that work!
  12. I appreciate that Evernote is following the feedback, but disappointed that all the new release is about is features unrelated to the usability complaints and bug fixes. My problems aren't bugs, but actual features of the design...
  13. I gave it a fair try, immersed myself in it for a few weeks. I can't take it anymore, I've gone back to the old interface. It feels soooo much better.
  14. Well, white space for Presentation mode is appropriate, just not for searching, browsing and editing notes. I need more out of that interface.
