  1. Lol. Sorry, I didn't see this until now @PinkElephant as I was out and about enjoying life ... I do see though that in posting this you managed to clock up another worthless post to bring your total note count to ...(drum roll) ... 4788!!!! WTF!?? Are you serious!?? Surely you can do something else with your life than live on these forums yapping at anyone that dares speak ill of your elephant? ... Well, I guess not ... Sorry to interrupt your important life's work .. you better get back to it little chihuahua ... 🤣 BTW, Evernote for Mac 10.8 released ... Still no CMD J ... but the good news is that it's "Coming Soon". 🤣
  2. Still no CMD J ... Evernote, at the forefront of innovation, continuing to redefine the expression "Coming Soon".
  3. @tavor@SK_123 There are open source migration tools available to convert .enex files into Markdown, which can then allow those Markdown formatted notes to be imported into other note applications with the links intact. Yarle is one such open source tool available to migrate .enex files to Obsidian. I have used it to migrate .enex files into Obsidian with note links intact. However, this is not a seamless process and it requires preparation of Evernote notes before migration. E.g. EN titles cannot have special characters (like the usual unix filename restricted chars | # < > etc) and the name of the note link in Evernote must be identical to the title of the note it is linking to (that is how Obsidian matches the links. It does not match the unique URL of that link). That clean up process can be automated using 3rd party Evernote services like Filterize. So if you have renamed your EN note titles after creating the link, you can either fix that before migration or manually relink the notes in Obsidian afterwards (note linking in Obsidian is far easier than in Evernote and it has backlinks so the relinking process is easy - and it can be automated with some scripting using the sed command). Solving the issue of being able to migrate notes out of Evernote with links intact was one of the main things holding me back from leaving Evernote a few years back when the (then) new CEO, Chris O'Neill, decided that instead of giving users much needed functional improvements, he decided to focus the company on a new elephant logo and some additional shades of green for the branding (and now we have the new CEO giving us more UI candy instead of functional improvements with this pointless new dashboard). Some basic scripting knowledge is required for these migration processes but you do not need to be a genius coder.
  4. Lol ... another Guru hanging on to the hope that Evernote will improve. I understand this. I hung on for a long time too. But with 1329 posts (OMG!) I am betting your confirmation bias is off the charts. Time will tell who the dinosaur is but for now, I am loving not being tied to this sinking ship, and even more loving watching you GURUs get what you deserved for all those years blindly defending the indefensible and attacking anyone who dared to speak ill of the elephant. You made your bed, now lie in it. 🤣
  5. ... because I enjoy irritating fanboys like you ... thanks for validating my participation 👍.
  6. Check out Obsidian. That is what I am now using. I was able to migrate all my notes with tag hierarchy and note links in tact but it does require some technical/scripting knowledge. However, the pain is worth it as I now have all my notes in a non proprietary format (Markdown), never to be locked in again. Any alternative will involve compromise but, in my case, what I lost, was made up for 10x over by other features that Evernote does not, and will never provide. Notion looks good on the surface but without Markdown support I ruled it out. Good luck.
  7. ... a wise decision. Me too. Unfortunately I have not been able to side step the iOS or support impacts.
  8. Really? I find it enormously entertaining watching the fanboys hold on for dear life as the train plummets into the ravine. 😂
  9. As someone who has worked as a developer through to C-level in global software dev and tech companies, my experience is that, the majority of the time, the issues that we are seeing at Evernote rarely have a root cause in the dev team ... they are usually self inflicted technical issues through poor management (software dev process - I still don't think Evernote has one, people mgmt, leadership etc) and decision making at the top. There is a reason that Chris O' Neill got the boot along with most of his execs a few years back and it wasn't because the dev team were lousy (I doubt they are). Unfortunately, Ian Small has demonstrated he too doesn't have the tech leadership chops he claims, evidenced the overwhelming backlash to v10 and the fact that support are so backlogged now that there is effectively no support at all. That's got nothing to do with squashing bugs and everything to do with knowing how to execute and resource your team properly - all things that someone in Ian Small's position should know.
  10. That's true, but the objective ones are rare.. unfortunately these forums have been infested with the same gang of shills for years with their thousands of vacuous posts and aggressive defence of Evernote that it's nigh impossible to get any semblance of objective discussion. It's been like it for years. That's why I like to preface my posts with the trigger warning as they really struggle with anyone saying anything negative about their dysfunctional elephant. Ironically, if they weren't so defensive and a little more straight shooting, we might not all be in this mess right now.
  11. TRIGGER WARNING FOR GURUS: This post does not represent blind support for Evernote. Like most normal users on these forums, I don't care for your self righteous, arrogant views but if you feel you need to respond to get your post count up then fill your boots. --- I really cannot believe that Evernote are proud to advise that they are working on new features (mostly which weren't asked for) when so many long time paying customers are just waiting for previous critical features to be reinstated and for some level of acceptable performance and customer support to be reinstated (you know, like not having to wait 6+ weeks to be advised that as a 10+ year Premium user, the reason that I cannot access Evernote v10 for web is because I have more than 1000 notes.) Working on new features at a time like this is just another example of the utter contempt that Evernote have for its customers.
  12. Finally a response from support on why I still can't access v10: @iansmall should be utterly embarrassed that this is the best he can do after 2 years.
  13. I have been an Evernote Premium subscriber for 10+ years. I have no problem paying if I get what the company represented, both in terms of product AND SERVICE. In this regard, Evernote have woefully failed of late and do not deserve any payment. I have now have multiple unresolved support tickets over a month old (include one relating to the fact that I am stuck on web v5.33 and cannot even access v10.x web). Support has simply stopped communicating for weeks despite multiple follow up emails. I am now raising tickets to ask about the status of my other open tickets. Evernote support has never been great but it has simply descended into the abyss of late. So much for Premium Support. This latest move to include web in the device limit of two is just another example of the increasing contempt that Evernote has for its current users. I think it will backfire in the long run, like most of @iansmall's decisions of late. @iansmall's latest "State of the Product" article is laughable. He should realise that the main audience likely to read that garbage are invested users like me who have a long time lived experience that prevents us swallowing the spoonfuls of placation and platitudes he is attempting to force feed us. I suspect he, and his minders, know this, which is why he now turns off comments on all his communications ... but according to his article he says "We are listening". WT... but I digress. Including the web version in the device limit is just a poor way to implement a product and will prevent new users from being able to experience all the apps which, if they were deemed valuable, would help convert the fremium user into a paid user. The only reason that the conversion rate is currently low is simply that fremium users do not see any real value in the paid product - no wonder when it has not been enhanced for 6+ years (and the competition now is a lot stronger). Making the fremium product less valuable does not make the paid product more valuable. It just cuts off the very supply of new users that might become paying users in the future. Bad for business. ... and if @iansmall really believes that tag users as such a low % of the current user base then he should be very concerned about his decision to decrease the size of the fremium funnel - there are A LOT of free note taking apps out there if tags aren't important to you and device limits are. Users simply will not even bother installing the Evernote app. Anyway, I implemented my contingency plan for the (then) inevitable demise of Evernote 3 years ago when the previous CEO Chris O'Neill ignored the needs of his Premium customers (i.e. the ones that pay him) and instead arrogantly concluded that what we really needed was a new Elephant icon and a few more shades of green in the brand. @iansmall is unfortunately on the same path of ignorance and arrogance. He asked for patience when he arrived, he got 2 years of it and then he screwed us with a downgrade masquerading as a "upgrade" (e.g. removing CMD J from the mac version speaks volumes of how out of touch they are). I have moved my family from annual to monthly payments and by April 2021 all our plans will be aligned monthly, ready to pull the ripcord to descend safely into a greener pasture if @iansmall can't join the dots by then that first platform he has to secure is one based on having happy CURRENT customers that expect to get what the brochure says ... like Premium customers getting Premium support.
  14. I still stuck on v5.33 for Web and the ticket I raised over this a month ago has gone cold. I’ve now asked for an update on status 5 times without a reply for 2 weeks ... and @iansmall has the audacity to proclaim in his recent post that "We are listening". What a croc.
