  1. Well, folks, I've waited and waited for Evernote to tell us they are going to fix the long pauses or delays I encounter in both my XP and Win7 machines when I use Evernote. I love the features of Evernote 5, but I hate how slow it is for me. No one from Evernote has even suggested they're looking into the problem reported by so many. So I have now reverted to version 4 on my XP machine. Zowie!! It is fast, fast, fast. And of course it has the very same tags, notes, etc... And it is still fast, fast, fast. Unless I encounter unexpected problems on the XP I will be uninstalling version 5 on the Win7 machine and reinstalling version 4. I hope people encountering crawling speeds will complain and complain some more. If version 4 can hum along so quickly, I'm sure 5's speed can at least be improved. The lag time for me is horrible in version 5 and nonexistent in version 4. Joe
  2. I guess today is the day to put out on the table all of my complaints. I forgot one last latency: When I click on a shortcut to another note, sometimes I can sit there twiddling my thumbs waiting for the new note to appear. Again, it never happened in version 4. Never. Joe
  3. Oh, there a couple of more latency problems with version 5 that drive me nuts. First, when I use the keyboard shortcut to enter the date and time, its appearance is often so slow that the date will finally appear in the middle of text I type after hitting the shortcut combination. There really is no excuse for this. It's pathetic, no? In version 4 the appearance of the date and time was instantaneous. The second latency issue I forgot to mention is the delay in checks appearing in check boxes. Frequently, when I attempt to check one of the check boxes in a task list, it won't appear for many seconds after I've clicked the box. Again, come on; this is pathetic. There never was a delay in version 4. I'm sorry to gripe, but I loved Evernote because it always worked perfectly and quicly in version 4. Joe
  4. I have many of the same problems with version 5 which have been reported by mgd3: - Search bar in the wrong place - Annoying latency for search - Annoying latency for switching notebooks - Indicated a specific notebook was selected but all notes were shown I also have the problem of sometimes having a latency after hitting the tag search button in the notebook column. The latency problems are on two different computers: one has Windows 7 and the other has Windows XP. Neither had latency issues with V4... I am hesitating in going back to the previous version only because I have been thinking that Evernote will soon deliver an update which will fix these issues - but it doesn't come and I see no promise of such an update. I sure wish Evernote would let us know if they are working on the stalling (latency) issue. I'd like to stay with version 5 if the latency problem is fixed because I find it far easier to do multi-tag searches in version 5. Of course version 5 will also be the only version to be supported and further developed. The organization and visual changes of the Evernote screen in version 5 are of no use or interest to me. I preferred version 4's layout, but I can easily accept that of version 5 - if it operates at the same speed as version 4. Joe
  5. Actually, Gazumped, it takes 6 clicks to change the sort if you want to change the sort and the reverse or forward order because when you make one change, the damned menu disappears before you can change the forward or reverse order. And just getting to the menu each time takes a number of clicks. How about this: allow one hotkey to pull up a menubox where you can select the sort you want and the box won't disappear until you have chosen both the sort and the order?
  6. Surely others have asked for this before. It is such a desirable feature that I can't understand why it isn't already a part of the program. The user should have the ability to change the sort order of the notes with hotkeys. Let me hit a couple of keys to instantly change the sort order of my notes. Sometimes I want them sorted by name in the normal sequence. Sometimes I want them sorted by the update but in reverse order. I actually don't use Evernote for some of the work I would like it to do simply because it is too slow to change the sort order with the mouse and menus. The ability to make instant sort changes would be a fabulous power to have. Joe
  7. How to search for notes with pdf files in V5? I know I can't search in a pdf file without a premium account. I just want to list my notes, by search or filter, which contain embedded pdf files. How can this be done? Also, I wonder what happened to the useful attribute searches that used to be at the bottom of the left column. Any simple way to access these? Thanks for any help. Joe

  9. I know how to change a font in any particular note, but I haven't found a way to change the default font so all new notes will open with my preferred font. Any ideas? joe
