  1. This is my issue in going forward with Evernote. They cannot be trusted to not break a workflow and create havoc, frustration and inconvenience and with no warning. Based on history, given that Evernote have this habit of abandoning features and worse, doing so in the manner that they have just done with version 10 whereby users suddenly discover that their software is not functioning as expected, perhaps as has happened with my workforce, being prevented from executing critical tasks such as emailing a copy of a note to a client (now removed along with printing to boot!!) then discovering that with Android and IOS there is no going back once an auto update has occurred, why on earth would anyone affected in this way want to remain with this company. The logic is that any new 'improved' features or replaced features with future updates are by default, transient. Simply put, one cannot trust this software no matter what Evernote now does to fix missing features. Here today but maybe not here tomorrow. The fix required to win back my confidence goes way beyond bug fixes and restoring features. I would need to see evidence of acknowledgment of the damage done to users trust and some kind of pledge to never do this again at least without some kind of guaranteed transition period. Management need to make a statement and an apology. I have been a premium user for many years and Ive had enough of this attitude. Once bitten, twice shy!
  2. Emailing copies of notes with all the attachments has become an integral part of the workflow between myself and a group of other users for years!!! There is nothing to replace this essential feature. I am pleased that you have added the copy email function to the 'Roadmap' but this is a bit like saying sorry I broke your car by removing 6th gear, ive put it on the list for a fix someday. It is unsatisfactory. We need this function today! To simply take away fundamental features with no warning and no alternative is beyond belief. We buy into this service BECAUSE OF the existing features at the time we decide to commit. Already this update has cost myself and others many hours of frustration and we are of course now considering alternatives. This practice of releasing updates and stripping features which may or may not be restored over time has been going on for years with Evernote. It completely destroys confidence in the software. It is a hazardous company to buy into! What's next to go ? That's been the constant worry and the reason for seeking alternative products. It is not safe to build a workflow around a product where the development culture appears so blase. As a matter of urgency, please make available all legacy versions until you have a properly formed product. That is damage limitation at least.
  3. This might help: Check this example of how that redesign affected readability. https://www.evernote.com/l/AF2U2zfb0FxFtIxmGwn-GYo5Cds3ED3SuSM/ Row no.4 would be a good starting point. The old viewer worked perfectly until the redesign. Overnight dozens of notes shared with my clients became unusable. The same note can be viewed with the old viewer which is still ( and i hope will remain) functioning when sharing a Notebook. https://www.evernote.com/pub/skyacc/sharednotesexamples Obviously it is not practical to create a note book just to share a single note and before the notebook limit was increased, it was not feasible. The old viewer worked perfectly until the redesign. Overnight dozens of notes shared with my clients became unusable. It seems to me that a fundamental aspect of Evernote, the ability to share notes, should be absolutely failproof. Its not easy sharing notes when one does not know if the recipient is going to be able to view the same thing as was created (notes created on PCs with monitors should be veiwed the same on the recipients PC & monitor). We all know that some things are best viewed on a larger monitor screen and not a phone.
  4. Thanks. It would be a massive relief to get this issue fixed and restore faith in the usability of all (not just small) shared notes. It used to be the case that any note i created in Evernote could be viewed full screen in a browser window. Then one day everything changed. This is a link to an unedited note (apart from the title) created from Evernotes template gallery. https://www.evernote.com/l/AF2Wl_ODQO1PsoEl0yOX3_l--2ha-qxWfkI/ What is happening on Sunday? This is a mild example.
  5. It appears to have been restored back to where it was before it was broken. I hope it stays this way, we rely heavily on this specific feature. Now if the shared notes width issue (wider shared notes and notes with tables get forced into an unusable narrow screen) got fixed id be a happy user again. Going off track a bit here but the theme is the same: Establish a process with a feature of Evernote.......Evernote makes a change and destroys hours of work when that function no longer works.
  6. Same here. I have multiple Evernote users emailing me their notes and everything comes in from Evernote. There is no way to identify who is sending what. Prior to this I noticed (on the 12th August) that the subject line was being changed to read 'Evernote' followed by my subject line. That was an unwelcome imposition. This is what makes me feel very uneasy about using Evernote. I hope they put things back to where it was before they messed it up because its causing chaos.
  7. I would like to hide this button .. I have been using Ctrl + N for years and this is a distraction and a waste of my space. Options please?
