  1. Not in this case. On iOS finish editing, return to the notes list and pull down, and only leave the app when the green syncing icon disappears. Every single time.
  2. Thanks but that is definitely not what I am doing. I said the device with the edits DOES sync. It’s the other device that does not sync those edits down. It just sits there out of date.
  3. does no one else care about this? Basically if you've been editing on phone and want to resume editing on mac, you have the kill the mac app and reopen it to force sync... and most of the time you forget and it creates a conflict.... it's pretty poor...?
  4. I use iOS and Mac. Maybe this never went away, but it felt like when v10 came out i was getting sync conflicts ALL the time. Then it seemed to improve, but now has returned. If I edit on iOS and then mess around forcing it to sync manually before i minimise the app (because if I do then it never syncs until i go back to Evernote, but that's more iPhone behaviour i guess), then I later go to Mac... it just sits there not syncing so it doesn't ever get the latest note... until you make a mac change, and then if you do you get a conflict. Why does it not just poll the server for changes every so often?? Esp as they got rid of the damn sync button!!
  5. I notice the really annoying by bug still exists, where if you are in read mode and click in the note to edit it, it just takes you to whatever point in the note it feels like. Sometimes the bit you clicked (which is the desired behaviour) but mostly somewhere else entirely. Get it fixed Evernote it’s really annoying.
  6. Who on earth came up with the idea that the DEFAULT behaviour, which is NOT able to be turned off, when you paste a hyperlink e.g. to youtube would be to convert this into an embedded video frame, and a giant one at that?! Why would ANYONE vaguely want this?? Every time i moved a block of text around in a note, if it contains links (as many of my notes do) it converts it every single time... worse yet, i have to tell it to reconvert it back into a link, whereupon it loses the display text and only retains the URL. Seriously evernote stop trying to show off your idiotic features if you don't understand your users.... or actually to be honest just humans in general. This is shaping up to a really terrible product.
  7. The niche specialist features are pointless if the basics don’t work. I can’t see any further than that.
  8. i have noticed that the sync (or whatever it is referred to now as) functionality from iOS sometimes stops and refuses to work until you restart the app. You can keep editing and editing but it never pushes then changes through until you kill the app. This happens A LOT, and i believe it is the primary reason for the more frequent sync conflicts across multiple devices.
  9. 'sync' seems to have disappeared as a functional concept. The UI now reports 'all changes saved' when it has done so after you make edits on the Mac, but there is no way to force it to sync if you know changes have happened on the notes from other devices. It seems to happen on a 10-20 second polling cycle so what am i meant to do... esp when i open up the mac for the first time in the morning, just leave it for a while and wait? How hard could it be, genuinely, to design it in such a way as to push the changes to other devices, rather than force them all to poll the server infrequently... record changes from the last device, and then when another device checks in and it wasn't the last device to have edited, it just pulls all the edits. It was easy enough to create sync conflicts on the previous version... imagine it's even easier now.
  10. how do i tell it i want the note list at the top.... again... why do they always force layout changes that are worse when they do a new release
  11. i really think you should provide a list of links to those other discussion threads please
  12. It looks like they’ve been making cosmetic changes to the interface controls again. Fix the bugs forget the rest!!!
  13. I’m well aware of that having used this software across several devices for years. I’m saying the behaviour has changed. Sync function does not have integrity.
  14. i'm getting save conflicts when i edit on iOS and then do another edit later on iOS without going anywhere near any other devices... this is a total and utter disaster release.
