    Looks like something is off with the automated update of your version.

    My current windows version is:

    v10.8.4
    Editor: V 118.1.15148
    Service: V 1.28.1
     

    I would suggest you re-install Evernote 10, if your version is still at 10.2.

    Agree with tm87 - single click in external links works OK with v10.8.4

    You definitely need to update - you may be missing out on other recent enhancements/fixes

  2. Alxa - Thanks for that information. I wasn't aware of that situation, but had noticed that things seemed to be quiet on the EN Android front.

    It's a pity , I quite liked the v10 Beta that I trialled on my Android v9 phone. I guess it's not a major issue for me as I tend to do most of my EN use on the Windows desktop, using my phone largely as a capture device with the camera, or as a reference aide. And the Android "Legacy" version stil works.

    Who knows - maybe by the time they've sorted the issues, I may have an Android phone with a newer OS? 😄

    Agree completely. The confusing thing is that the other two references to the sidebar are for the sidebar (as I understand the term) so it is reasonable to assume that it is referring ot the same thing in all three cases. The arrow at the bottom of the sidebar does say "collapse sidebar" so that is the terminology I'm using.

    Well spotted! I note from the Keyboard Shortcuts panel that the other way of opening that Tags flyout from the sidebar is Ctrl+Alt+5.

    I suppose if you could right-click on "Tags" in the sidebar to get that list of tags displayed, you should also be able to right-click on "Notebooks" to get similar functionality,...

  4. Yes - I found that confusing as well. "right-click on tags on the sidebar" is the confusing phrase...I suspect, like me, that you assumed "sidebar" meant the left hamd pane with the notebook list, etc.

    As far as I can see, if  you left-click on "Tags" in the left hand menu pane, that opens a Tags dialog panel, where if you right-click on a particular tag, a menu opens giving you options like "Create sub-tag", "rename tag" etc.

    Sounds like a matter of terminology. It might be good if more images were included with the release notes or they were linked to a video showing the functionality...?

    And perhaps there should be a set of definitions as to how different parts of the EN interface should be referred to e.g. what the "sidebar" is?

    Having said all that, I imagine this release must go some ways to helping those whose workflow is built around Tags (personally, I make minimal use of them) but it seems EN is responding to feedback.

  5. agsteele - I appreciate your comments (as always).

    I do agree that v10 is improving, and it's has been weeks since I actually used the co-resident Legacy version on my PC.

    In this instance I have found it jarring that when performing the same task (selecting a date)  in different parts of Evernote that the process I follow is not the same.  It makes me wonder if the developers are not "power users" who like to navigate via the keyboard rather than dragging a mouse across the screen 🤔

    Certainly UI design can be challenging, but even if it doesn't suit all users,  it ought to be consistent.

    Thanks for flagging the use of the Esc key on the Note Info window -  I had overlooked that; I'm sure that pre-v10.7.6 the Enter key worked on the Bore Info window to save the changes,... but I may be mis-remembering things after adjusting to v10's shortcuts. So I can use Esc on Note Info but Enter on Reminder window, ah welll!

     

  6. I originally posted this in the bugs forum and raised a support ticket with Evernote on the subject. I was disappointed when the response to the support ticket was "I have checked on my end, and it appears that this is an expected behavior with the new app." I had been under the impression that one of the drivers of the v10 development was to ensure consistency in Evernote across platforms and between functions.
     

    While EN v10 is improving all the time, and I rarely have to switch over to my co-resident Legacy version, there are a few features that would benefit from being made more consistent to allow better workflow.

    One irritation I have with v10.7.6 is the inconsistent implementation of date-pickers.

    I use the facility to alter the Note Created date regularly in my workflow, using Ctrl+Shift+N to open the Note Info window and then tabbing twice to the “Created” field and then clicking to open the date-picker. The current month is displayed in a 5 x 7 grid. However, as I found in January 2021, the 5x7 arrangement doesn’t always display a whole month due to the 1st being a Friday (1st row) meaning that the 5th row ends on 30th, so you have to move to the February to select 31st (Sunday).

    This display is inconsistent with the date-picker for the Reminder facility. When you click the Edit option on the Reminder icon you get a month display in a 6 x7 grid which will show all the says in a month like January. This sort of inconsistency creates a feeling of “are the developers talking to one another?”

    Comparing these two date-picker options, thee also seems to be inconsistency around using Escape to cancel out of the operation; and having selected a specific date in the Reminder window you can just click Enter to complete the action, but if changing the Created date when you’ve selected a date, you have to the “Save” button and click that to compete the process. [Note also that the completion button on the Created date edit window is labelled “Save” while the completion button on the Reminder edit window is labelled “Done” – that could be confusing as another Reminder option is to mark/unmark the Reminder as done…]

    I also feel it would be useful to navigate around the date-picker grids using the left/right arrow keys, and ideally to improve the workflow, it would be good to have a shortcut to open the Reminder edit window rather than having to mouse down and select the bell icon at the bottom of the screen.

    I like EN v10 – it works – but there are a number of rough edges that need cleaning up to make it smoother to use, being able to complete actions using keyboard shortcuts rather than having to switch between keyboard and mouse in the middle of an action.

    Looking forward to future improvements.

  7. I raised this as a Support Ticket with Evernote but got the response

    "I have checked on my end, and it appears that this is an expected behavior with the new app."

    I find this disappointing as I was under the impression that part of the drive behind the v10 development was a desire to introduce more consistency in how Evernote functioned - both across platforms and internally. Sadly this doesn't seem to be the case yet.

  9. asteele -

    I can see your point if view. However, the ability to edit the Note Creation Date (and Time) was specifically added in v10.1 as I believe it is a feature that many EN users utilise. I don't believe there are or should be any restrictions on the value of the Date Created field - don't forget there is also the Date updated field .

    Looking through my notes, the bug exists for the period from midnight this morning up to the created time of the note - - if a note has a creation date of today and a creation time earlier than the current time then the "nn hours ago" is calculated incorrectly. If I set the creation date to the previous daym then the Creation date is displayed as the text "Yesterday" (inconsistently, creation dates of the next day aren't displayed as "Tomorrow").

    And looking through older notes where I had set the creation date those creations dates are being displayed correctly. The bug applies if the creation date is the current day...😦

  10. I mentioned this before after the ability to modify the Note Created date was introduced to v10 - there seems to be a bug in how the dates are displayed in the Note list.

    The attached image shows the note list of my !Next folder as it appears in the Legacy and v10.5.7 versions (screen captures taken approx 11:30am on Dec 28th)

    The Legacy version shows the date as dd/mm/yyyy  (UK format) and tomorrow's date is shown as "Tomorrow".

    In v10.5.7 the created dates for 30th and 31st December are shown as "Dec30" and "Dec 31" - I can live with this as it probably overcomes any different regional date formatting (e.g. dd/mm/yyy vs mm/dd/yyy  ).

    However, the 3 notes shown in the Legacy version with a date of "Tomorrow" appear in v10.5.7 very differently -

    Tomorrow (29th December) 009:02 appears as "21 hours ago"
    Tomorrow (29th December) 10:50 appears as "23 hours ago"
    Tomorrow (29th December) 20:01 appears as "Dec 29"

    Why don't all 3 "Tomorrow" dates appear as "Dec 29" ?

    Why do the first two dates appear as "nn hours ago" , suggesting dates in the past?
    The date/time these screenshots were taken was 29th December approx 11:30 - so the 3rd date/time is still in the future  while the first note was only 2.5 hours ago and the second only 40 minutes ago!

    It seems like the there is a calculation in the program code which for some reason attempts to determine if the created date is in the past and then gets it wrong (21 hours ago should probably be 3 and 23 hours should probably be 1)

    I'm not sure why the program is attempting to work out id the date is in the future or the past - I'd be quite happy to see those first two dates displayed as "Dec 29", but it is an annoying bug which ought ton be fixable.

    Obviously I can use the Web Clipper in the way that you suggest for capturing text from HTML webpages, and indeed I frequentlydo.  As an academic however, some of the things I want to store in Evernote are PDFs of articles in research journalswhich are online.  With the older version of Evernote I was able to choose to open these with Evernote and they would simply go into the default notebook.  This is the behaviour I would like to be reinstated, or have the ability to choose, rather than Evernote creating a separate notebook every time.  Incidentally, I am using Firefox for my browser.  I appreciate that I could save the file somewhere on my PC and then later use the right click context menu and do a "send to" Evernote but again, these are extra steps that I would like to avoid if possible.  Hope this makes sense  answers your question. Thank you for your response.

    Thanks for clarifying your usage. Evernote has always been so flexible in its use, thatb people have found different ways of utilising its capabilities.

    Check your Clipper options - open Clipper and look at the bottom of the drop-down list - there are some related choices there...

     

    Thanks for reminding me that the clipper extension can be configured by right-clicking the icon on the browser and selecting "Options" - I had totally forgotten that yu could do that!

  12. Can you clarify your workflow please?

    I'm running Windows 10 Home and using Chrome as my browser. If I'm browsing the web and find a document I'd like to save in Evernote. I use the Evernote Web Clipper extension in Chrome. I click on the link in the web page, which opens the document in the browser then use Clipper extension dialog window to specify the notebook I wish the document to be saved in and the note is created in the desired notebook (your default notebook is the default selection in the Clipper).

    You say you use the "Open With" option to import the document into Evernote - does that mean you've already downloaded the document to your PC and are uysing that option from File Explorer?

  13. Installed v10.4.3 this morning - installation ran through OK (I've been using v10 since it's first release and  updating with each new update) 
    Checked the new features (top list, etc) - seem OK'; noticed I had to reset the columns in my note list display, presumably because of the changes there (URL option, etc)

    Able to display content in my various notebooks, apart from one specific notebook - screen displays "we're having a problem - ret reloading rge page"
    First time I've encountered this problem.

    A sew reload attempts didn't work.

    the notes are still there - they can be seen from the "All Notes" view.

    My solution was to use the Legacy version which I still have installed:
    - open Legacy version
    -create new notebook
    - go back to v10.4.3
    - select relevant notes from All Notes list and move to the new notebook
    - check new notebook content is visible
    - go back to Legacy version
    - delete original notebook that wasn't displaying
    - rename new notebook to that of the (now deleted) original
    go back to v10.4.3 - check "recreated" notebook is accessible

    Problem resolved!
    BUT is there a bug lurking here?
    Why was the notebook content not visible?

  14. While I normally work with the 3 pane view (sidebar, note list, note), I can see benefits of being able to turn off the note pane and only view specific notes when you wantb to by double-clicking the note in the note list so that it opens in a separate window.

    This doesn't appear to be a bug per se, more a use case issue - it probably ought to be on the Feature Request forum, if it's not already there.
