windows (Archived) New Evernote-look = No notebook-icons .... Why?

Recommended Posts

"Evernote - Remember Everything" - eccept witch notebook is shared with me or to others - thats up to me now to remember ??? - seriously ?

One upon a time (before current update) Evernote had green or blue notebook-icons (with arrows or to lille guys) so the user easily could see the status of each nootebook (private, shared with others, shared with you). With the new evernote-look every notebook looks the same ... why why why ??? ... :huh:  :huh: :huh:  
 
(pardon my french :D )

Because the developer had not Evernoted where they had put the icons? This has been asked for many times, but we will not be told when it will be fixed until after it is. Which could be months/years away. Very frustrating, I know. But that's the way Evernote works ...

I agree. Visual clues are critical to efficient use of a product like this. The new look (Windows and IOS) is not nearly as attractive or helpful.

I agree that this needs to come back.  The new Evernote 5 for Windows is hard to know what is what between personal and shared notebooks.  

 

The only way I've been able to tell is to look at the Notebook and click on the title.  (see attached).

 

Very confusing.

I vanted to come here and rant about this shorcoming of the new sleek UI, but luckily I'm not the only one.

 

thanks for the info KM

 

Too bad that this doesn't show the status of sync though

Here here. The new format is going for glitz over functionality, but Evernote's value is in being as efficient as possible. In general, I notice no substantive benefit with this new version. Will go back to the old one now.
