  1. For Firefox 53, the Evernote login dialog never provides me with an opportunity to enter my password. It instead displays only a blank page at: https://www.evernote.com/Login.action?targetUrl=%2FHome.action If I right-click that blank page and choose Display Source, the page is completely empty. This over-complicated login sequence was presumably done in the name of "security". All it has done for me is prevent me from using Firefox 53 to log in. I had to use Vivaldi to log in so I could submit this problem... Cheers, RBV SFO
  2. The following idea has probably already been submitted more than once, but I can't find the topics so in my annoyance am creating this post. For Evernote client for Windows, provide the ability to turn off autoformatting of lists, URLs, indeed ANYTHING. An OFF switch for autoformatting has evidently already been implemented in the Mac client. The Windows client needs this, too -- and now! (By the by, I have what I believe to be the most current E'note client for Windows, (277494) Public. IMPORTANT POINT: The Evernote client's autoformatting is so annoying that I have revered to editing notes in a plain-text editor, then pasting the text into an Evernote simply to circumvent unwanted auto-formatting. For example, I do NOT want lists to be indented; I do NOT want URLs to automatically be made clickable. Et cetera... Cheers & thanks for attending to this as quickly as possible, Riley SFO
  3. Completely agree: EverNote needs to provide an OFF switch for the auto-formatting. I do NOT want a program to guess what I want. I want a program to wait form my command, perform that command and only that command. Period. Do NOT NOT NOT cause the program to decide what's best for me. Provide an OFF switch for auto-formatting of lists! Cheers & thanks, Riley SFOI
  4. Currently using version 5 client on Windows. I want COLOR! ■ The ability to color-code notes and notebooks. ■ The ability to choose highlight colors. ■ The abilty to choose the background color of text. ■ The ability to choose a client color scheme other than Mundane Bluegrey Not just a limited palette of pre-defined colors, but the ability to specify RGB or hex color values. Seriously, some of the most primitive Windows applications from the 1980s provided colors customizations. Why can't the Evernote desktop client? Cheers & thanks, Riley SFO
  5. I've tried four times to use the Web Beta and have given up in exasperation each time. This Premium user's only hope at this point is that Evernote NEVER forces this interface on me. I work full-time with a laptop computer. So the first thing I needed to do when I activated the BETA mode is set the page's zoom to 80-percent. Seems this is a consequence of *assuming* (uh oh) a mobile user? I then tried to work with my notes. The darn interface kept getting in the way by trying to "help" me by guessing (uh oh again) what I wanted as in automatically closing the left-side navigation pane, et cetera. Noooooo! Observe, please, the irony of the direct conflict between the Beta's promises to get out of my way versus the Beta's constant inteference with my use of the product in the form of automatically moving, hiding, repositioning, and otherwise being way too "dynamic". One especial annoyance was the overly large, space-wasting black retangle that relentlessly urged me to Share the notebook I was viewing. I couldn't find any way to get this off the screen. So much for the Beta "getting out of my way" relative to the old, usable, (ahem) "in my way" layout and behaviors. What I would strongly prefer is some unambiguous controls, perhaps augmented by user-preferences settings, that put me back in *full control* of the Web interface. Stated another way, the product should never *assume* what I want, should never automatically change the arrangement or appearance of the user interface on its own, should never try to force-feed me options such as "Share" that I don't require at the moment, and should otherwise -- and this is key -- wait for user command then perform that command *and only that command*, no more, no less. Long story short, I've tried multiple times to actually do useful work with the Beta and was unable to do so. Lord, please don't force me to struggle with it under the banner of "improvement". Finally, if your developers are feelin' frisky, how about a setting in one's User Preferences that says, in essence, "Enough already -- I've tried the Beta and don't want it!". As it is, each time I log into a new Evernote Web session I'm confronted with an overlay that yet again (and again and again and again) asks me to try the Beta. When will it end? Cheers & hope this helps, Riley SFO
