  1. The niche specialist features are pointless if the basics don’t work. I can’t see any further than that.
  2. 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.
  3. '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.
  4. 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
  5. i really think you should provide a list of links to those other discussion threads please
  6. It looks like they’ve been making cosmetic changes to the interface controls again. Fix the bugs forget the rest!!!
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. this is a crew that has, consistently over a number of years, shown itself exceptionally poor at plugging leaks... and that aside from the fact that a more important task should be avoiding leaks in the first place. The point is more the continuing attrition of confidence in your product, brought on and sustained by repeated failures, missed expectations and just crazy decisions leading to the release of substandard versions. Whilst the hard working 'salt of the earth' teams are beavering away 'plugging leaks' as you say, the customers are walking away; and right now. Brutally, note-taking is not that complex. Evernote have made a simple product so complex and hard (for them) to manage, that it doesn't even do the basics well. That is fundamental breakdown, and shows mis-management all the way to the top. It isn't about fixing bugs... this is a product and a company on a trajectory to failure. Until that is acknowledged, there is no hope that it will be turned around. I've had 4 sync conflicts today, so I'm now testing out other products.
  10. am i the only sub that thinks the new release is pretty terrible? Tap the screen to edit, it takes you a totally different place in the note. Select some text, the cut/copy etc controls don't appear. No obvious 'sync status' marker that i can see and i've had sync conflicts 5 times across devices since the update like 2 days ago. Google docs links get overwritten by some massive banner ad thing that demands i connect my google account even though i don't want. No noticeable functional improvements; only regressions. Basically it's just a cosmetic update that for some reason has introduced a ton of regression issues against basic functionality, plus a load of new ways of doing old things, that seems to bear no relation to how people work or what they want to do.
  11. so this has been asked for for 6 years and no one at evernote cares?
  12. i use Evernote on windows 7 laptop and iOS 8. Quite often if I copy and paste within the same note, and on the same device, the text gets pasted with unwanted line breaks that weren't in there before cutting. Usually this is an unwanted line break around a piece of text that iOS has highlighted and hyperlinked as a reference to a date e.g. "Tomorrow" or "21 jan" or "Thursday" etc. any ideas on what can be done to stop it? Thanks
