  1. No, you've completely misunderstood my point and then projected motivations on me which are completely untrue and made a public moral condemnation based on them. It's clearly never occurred to you that you might have misunderstood me or that we've misunderstood each other. I'm sorry you're so pissed off by people. You don't have to respond, I'm done with this "conversation".
  2. Wow! Just wow! Why on earth would you turn this into a personal attack on my character? I won't respond in kind. I hope you're just having a bad day. To be clear, I've demanded nothing of anyone. I reported what I felt was a bug in that the software did not respond in the way I expected it to. I've made clear my opinion on how I think the feature should logically function. I've even made clear that I don't consider it a major issue but something that could be tweaked to make the software better. I really don't believe that the suggestions I've made, and they are SUGGESTIONS, could possibly harm ANYONE. And yes, I think if a minor software change allows me, and ANYONE ELSE WHO WANTS IT, to get something earlier, easier and faster, then yes, ABSOLUTELY that should happen. Why not? If you feel that this change shouldn't happen because it would make the software worse in some way, that's fine. You can articulate that. But to add to a discussion that had already run its course to personally attack and belittle someone who's done nothing but express an opinion about a software feature is not only personally offensive, but runs counter to what I would hope would be the spirit of the forum.
  3. I see. Kind of. What determines which server is yours? When I check on the download link of the website, though, I'll always get the latest (non-beta) version. Surely the client could check a central link to see what the current version is and initiate a download, circumventing the usual auto update process. But it would only do this if the user manually selects the check update menu item. This wouldn't require changing anything about the canonical update system. There's lots of more pressing issues the developers can and should be working on, but I brought this up as something that frustrates me so it will hopefully get on the developers radar. I do believe it could go in the pile of non-critical but fairly easy things to fix. Thanks.
  4. I've never suggested that everyone should be notified immediately when an update becomes available, simply that if you manually select check for updates you should be shown if there is an update available. It's unlikely 200 million users would simultaneously decide to manually check for updates at the same time...
  5. The average user probably doesn't ever click on check for updates. It's only the most engaged users that will. So it doesn't make any sense to not have this actually check for the latest version, especially if the app will automatically update eventually anyway. Perhaps the only reason for this option is to install an update you've previously declined? But then it's clearly mislabeled and frustrates your most engaged users. I really think this needs to be fixed so if someone goes the trouble of manually looking for an update, it will offer them one if there is one available (since they can download that version from the website manually anyway). I can't think of any reason not to implement this, but if there is a reason, than this option just be removed entirely and replaced with a more logical update notification system. My 3 cents...
  6. I'm currently on 10.8.4 but I upgraded manually. I've yet to see it auto update. It may be that it takes several days and every time I've checked it happened by chance to be just after the new release? But this doesn't seem too likely. In terms of expected behaviour, it seems logical to me that even if the app normally autoupdates itself, if you've gone to the trouble of manually opening the menu item to Check for updates, it should actually check if there is a current update and offer to install it, even if you'd otherwise not receive it for a while due to a phased rollout. If the check for update item isn't designed to behave that way, then I'd argue it should just be removed entirely, since it's just confusing and has no real functionality. I'm hoping it's a bug and not by design. (On the Google Pixel phones' check for update, it won't tell you there's an update if you're not currently in the part of the phased rollout receiving the update, and then you get it automatically anyway, so the feature is essentially useless. It always really bugged me!)
  7. Since I first decided to give the new evernote (ver 10+) a try, I've found that Help/Check for updates... command always says, "You're up to date!" even though when that's clearly not true as the version available for download on the website is newer. This has been the case on 2 computers I use (both Windows 10) since the first time I've installed on them (at least 4 version ago). So I need to manually check the website for updates. I'm not sure how to even easily do that. I end up starting a download and looking at the version number in the filename. If it's not newer I cancel the download. Can you please fix so the check for update actually works? Also, is there any option, or planned option for automatic updates (whether auto-installed or showing a notification that an update is available)? That would be really useful, especially while there's still rapid development on the app. Thanks!
  8. I may be naive, but I think zero knowledge encryption of notes and notebooks with group sharing of encrypted notes is much more valuable to business users than work chat. Of course this has to be done right and they need to hire a security expert and vet it rather than try to graft on some homemade solution that will be easily hacked. But this is the sort of feature I think users would be willing to pay. I sometimes use Lastpass to store notes on sensitive information. Lastpass note editing and attachment handling is terrible. I'm already a premium user, but I would love to be able to have Lastpass level security with Evernote level notekeeping.
  9. There is weird workaround that kind of works on my Surface Pro 3: you have to put 2 fingers down, but do so vertically, not horizontally (like you would with normal 2 finger scrolling). Then keep your top finger stationary and move your bottom finger up or down (kind of like a vertical half pinch) and it will scroll. It will scroll in the wrong direction relative no normal touch scrolling, but it does seem to work. But it's awkward. Also, I've found it's somewhere from extremely difficult to impossible to grab the scrollbars using touch so that's not an option either. Hopefully they will update the client to support hiDPI screens and touch in the not to distant future or make a Windows 10 universal app with feature parity, but I'm not holding my breath. I've been meaning to try TouchMe Gesture Studio so it's nice to hear that works. I think that may be the near-term solution.
  10. I like on the latest widget the option to have several notes displayed but it's annoying that I have no way to control the ordering of those notes. I believe it uses last modified date. It would be really nice if I could specify the ordering to be something more useful to me. At least it could respect the ordering method used within the main app, but it would be even better if I could independently specify the ordering either from within the main apps settings or at creation time for the widget (which would provide the opportunity to have different widgets with different orderings). Thanks.
