Currently on 7.02 on MacOS. When in snippet view, the active note's sidebar snippet is lightly shaded in gray. OK, that's nice. But it keeps blinking! As in, when you're working in the note, the snippet shading keeps going off (turning to white) for a second every few seconds. So it's alternating between white background (like all notes) and shaded background. This is really distracting and annoying! Anyone else in here seeing that? Where's the quality control for pete's sake!
I'm finally at the point where I can't take it anymore, and am seriously considering leaving Evernote because of (what I realize is) a trivial matter... Why in the ever-lovin' heck do you require me to jump through so many damn hoops just to log in??? Follow along: I'm at my laptop, I want to jot down some ideas, so point my web browser to "evernote.com" That page loads - Lots of pictures, and other good info - most of it trying to get me to upgrade from my free service (I get it - you want to make money). As a user for the site/service you'd expect I could just log-in from the front page. Wrong! I now need to click "Log in". The Log In page loads... Thankfully, my user name is there, so I don't have to type that. But, there's no where to put my password. OK... So, I click "Continue". The page drops down, and now, I can put in my password. My browser is set up to remember this, so it's already in the field. NOW I can log in!!! I click "Sign In". The page finally loads, and I can click "+" to start a new note. Let's count the clicks it takes from idea to adding a note: Clicking in my browser's address bar Clicking on "Log In" (Sometimes) clicking in the "Enter email address or username" field Clicking "Continue" (Sometimes) clicking in the "Password" field Clicking the "Submit" button Clicking the "+ (New Note)" button This is a GUI ergonomic nightmare for such a simple task. I hope it can be fixed. I'm sure I'm not the only one that gets driven bonkers by this. Clearly, there's got to be a better way to streamline this... The easiest being letting me put in my username and password at the evernote.com home page, it'd be great if they're "remembered" there (at my option)... Kind of like how just about every other log-in page on the internet works. Better yet... When I decide I want to type out an email, and I go to my gmail page, I just type in gmail.com in the address bar, I'm "remembered", and it goes straight to my inbox... I click "compose" and BAM!!!! I'm typing the email!! Would be great if Evernote made it just as easy to start a new note. Any chance it can get fixed?
I opened my evernote today (ver 220.127.116.1188) and I realized that the old-fashioned panel containing all the notebooks and stacks was not there. It has been replaced with a fancy "contextual-menu" (see picture). It's nice, but it should be an option. Personally, it dramatically reduces my productivity at work. Why? Too many click-n-scroll operations. Just consider this example: you are constantly working on two or three stacks of notes. You don't need any "search", simply you keep on jumping from each other all the day long. You have to explore them, sometimes you don't exactly remember if the note you were working at was in stack A or in stack B or C. Before with 3 mouse clicks at wrost I could easily found the right stack: click on A. Is it the right one? Nope. Click on B. Is it it the right one? Nope. Click on C. Is it the right one? Yeah Now - Click on the the "notebook icon". Scroll down to the proper notebook, click on A. Is it the right one? Nope. Click on the the "notebook icon" again . Scroll down to the proper notebook again click on B. Is it the right one? Nope. Click on the the "notebook icon" again . Scroll down to the proper notebook, again click on C. Is it the right one? Yeah. But it was hard! Please, give us back the fixed notebook panel, leaving the context-menu as an option. Compactness is as good as mouse-saving ;-)
I've recently started using Evernote again, I use to hate it in the past because it was so heavy and cumbersome, but the iPad app was so impressive it got me back on, but now that I've moved all my notes to it and have several notebooks I use, I'm shocked to find that Evernote does not have any COLOR options. How is it that there's no option to pick a color for each notebook, and then whenever you look at a note there is a hint to that color to help me quickly recognize which notebook it belongs to. It will make Evernote so much more appealing and it's something that almost every other organization app has. Where can we add this to the suggestions box?
