Up and running.  It will be interesting to see how this version works given the bug fixes.

OK I'm going in...  😳

Edit:  Immediate result - new shortcuts:

  • Ctrl+Shift+Alt+A replaces selected text with "Á" rather than copying it... (in both Evernote and a text app...)
  • Ctrl+Alt+S... doesn't seem to do anything...  whether Evernote is selected or not.
  • Ctrl+Shift+F... doesn't seem to do anything...  whether Evernote is selected or not.

Did someone forget a full stop?

Win 10 64bit

Works for me... I did have to do a 'Restore default' in the options since I typically don't set global keys. Remember - we changed the defaults - we don't automatically change you to the new defaults.

I don't want to be rude, but it's two months since your new CEO announced you were going to "fix essential features" and I see no evidence of it. One and a half months after the last GA and there are only 5 bug fixes in this beta. Are we to assume everyone is working on the web app and that the desktop apps are on their way out? If not, what are you all doing all day?

I don't think we should expect any major changes until v.7 is released. My guess is that won't be released until closer to the summer at the earliest..

Were any of the fixes listed not essential? They all look like bug fixes to me, rather than new features, which was the implication of the announcement. And the promise was that they were going to fix essential features; no promises were made as to how quickly they'd be fixed. Not to mention the possibility that they may not have surfaced all of the changes they've made, or that they may be laying groundwork for future fixes, but haven't been completed yet. Any number of reasons why you might not be seeing as many fixes as you'd like as soon as you'd like them.

Reminder: the stated goals in the CEO blog post:

Quote

Our goals are simple but meaningful:

  1. We’re going to create a more coherent, more consistent Evernote experience for every version of the product we ship, starting from Evernote Basic on up—an experience that fixes the essential features on which all of us depend.
  2. We’re going to make fundamental changes to how we develop and deliver software—so that we can start to ship faster across all the devices we support, and so that all of us can experience the same Evernote, regardless of which device we use to experience it.
  3. And we’re going to make improvements to the core infrastructure that sits behind the applications you experience so that we can deliver an Evernote with the speed, reliability, and scalability that all of us expect.

Oh, and check your dates: 6.17 dropped on Jan 10th -- with new features, granted, but those were probably already in the pipeline -- so it's actually less than 2 months since then. It's not clear how much of what's going into 6.18 was in the works at that time, and iwhether some of that time is being spent rearchitecting for ."speed, reliability, and scalability", that may cut into visible feature additions / bug fixes for the time being.

Maybe it would be better to just relate which problems that you think are essential  to be fixed.

You can assume what you like, but have you actually seen the web client lately, at least the web beta? Not ready for prime time; certainly I couldn't use it for my day-to-day Evernoting, whereas the Windows Evernote still keeps chugging along. I often liken Evernote to GMail due to a number of architectural similarities, but Evernote's web experience is nowhere near what GMail's is in terms of performance and functionality. If they ever come close to that, then using the web client wouldn't be something to worry about.

I wish I had as much time as you do to get into such a lengthy discussion, but the fact remains that two months later nothing seems to have changed. Obviously this annoys you and your loyalty is, while difficult to comprehend, err just difficult to comprehend. Anyway, I hope Evernote get their act together one day.

Considering that (IMHO) there is no single other app that comes close to Evernote's range of features and accessibility across operating systems and devices,  I think the expression might be amended to more together,  but I can totally agree with that. 

However,  like @jefito I can relate to apps servicing 225M+ clients across the various systems and devices taking a little time to change course - a little like parking a supertanker.  Sniping meantime is understandable but seems like impatience.  Evernote probably won't respond because they don't have the time,  but other users might spare some time to share a thought or two,  and it would be rude to... oh.  That's where we came in isn't it...?

1) quirk: had a quirk where screen clipping (using the old Print Screen mapping) was clipping the screen as expected, but notes were "auto selected" after each screen clip - so each time (in a row), I clipped, I'd have those notes 'piling up' as all selected.  Went into options and did  a reset for the key mapping and used the new ctrl-alt-s and the problem didn't duplicate.

2) suggestion: "insert template" - I use the template feature some-what regularly -but what would have me use it even more is an "insert template" feature.  Example is I can take a photo of something - but need to generate a basic report with that photo - it would be nice to go to the photo note and "insert template" to drop that template into place.  As it sits I either generate a new note with the template then copy & paste the photo, then go back and delete the photo note.... or the otherway 'round - go to my template, copy & paste it into the photo note.    An "insert template" option would be quite helpful.

The print function does not work correctly.

No matter what I do, all printouts are in landscape mode.  

Will this be addressed in the next beta?

Hi.  Have you checked your printer settings?  Mine seems to work OK with both formats.

Thanks for the note.  I can make it work by playing with printer settings inside the note.  However, at the global level, it appears to only do landscape.

I hope this addressed in the next beta.

Image annotation bug where the image gets 'broken' seems to be back... or at least for me it's happening - unless  "Filterize" is causing some confusion and sync issues.  Anyone else seeing this?

I can right click on it and 'save attachments' (to desktop for example) and the image is properly saved.

Thanks for this report. We're investigating this now.

Yeah, I had one of these today.  Fortunately, I was able to get the PDF back from history.

Are you able to reliably reproduce this issue? Unfortunately we are not able to. Please provide the steps you followed.  Thanks a lot!

I assume you mean repeat the steps to lose the attachment?  No can do, this note hadn't been referenced in a year.  When I opened it the "broken attachment" icon was there.  This had to do with taxes so I know I used the attachment last year.  So who knows when/how it got lost.  Save attachment did not work so I went to history  (sometimes the attachment is in the note but not visible).  Only had one version in history and fortunately that version contained the attachment.
