Can I just say:

- Added an option to show Note counts in the Sidebar

Awesome, thank you. And it even works with tags in Shortcuts.

...Ugh. Do I really have that many notes in my Inbox to process? I think I might prefer the blissful ignorance of no note counts.

LOL reminds me of a problem with my inbox a few weeks ago. It was only updating every 40 minutes, got way more done in between.

The fact you haven't fixed bulleting and pasting is absolutely dumbfounding. This is a beta product still.

Yes there is some way to go but the fact they have added back things that some people may consider as clutter (note counts), is a very good sign.

This is a note taking app. It should be very good at taking notes first and everything else second.

Jack, thank you for having a direct download as well as through the App Store. I know people who'd like a copy without going through the App Store. Thanks for bringing it back.

How about the customizing of the menu bar at the top? When I tried the Beta 5.0.0 that ability had been removed. In particular I used a single click to Delete a note. Also a single click to Print. With the Beta version it took more clicks.

What about an update of the User Guide for Mac? When should we expect that? Not the quick start stuff, and not the videos, since they do not actually explain how to do stuff.

And if I did update to Evernote 5.0.1 and did not like it, can I revert back to 3.3.0 or would I be stuck with 5.0.1? I already have a good facility with 3.3.0 and I would not want to lose the ability to go back to it.

Thanks in advance.

Good to see some stuff getting put back where they belong. I'm not going back up to v5 until it's at least as good as v3.3 that I rolled back to, though.

When you say Notes can be dragged to Tags - have you replaced the reverse function too - dragging tags onto notes, like the previous version can?

What about Toolbar configuration - is that back in yet?

I don't want to appear churlish, and I do recognise that you are responding to feedback here - thanks for that. But there are still some major features that were removed and need to go back in before I'd even consider upgrading again.

What about saved searches? In 5.0.0 that was changed and I could not figure it out, or maybe there wasn't even that feature any more. Another reason I rolled back and am hesitant to re-try.

Just wanted to let you know that I've noticed that tags will disappear when changing the hierarchy (placing them under other tags). A quit and restart seems to bring them back, but if you change the hierarchy (for other tags), those tags disappear too. Let me know if you want the activity log for it.

Confirmed. I see the same issue, and restart solution.

- Reduced CPU/memory usage

This was my main issue. It was painfully sloooooow on my Macbook. Even went as far as re-installing version 3. May wait awhile before trying version 5 again.

This is a good place to start if you are wondering what is and isn't in OSX.

http://evernote.com/.../whats_new/mac/

On this page it states:

Timesaving new features

Quickly filter out notebooks or tags by clicking the left navigation button, then immediately typing the filter word

I don't see the "left navigation button", and does it really mean "filter out", as in "exclude" notebooks and tags?

@Jackolicious: "NightStalker - Yes, tags can be dragged to notes as well."

Thank you - a most definite step in the right direction :)

Configurable toolbar next, maybe? :wub:
