Evernote 10.2.4

In early October, Evernote released version 10 of its eponymous information management app for the Mac with more control over appearance, improved searching, and a redesigned user interface. Evernote 10 adds the capability to use semantic headers and tables to give structure to your notes; provides real-time search suggestions as you type; enables search filtering by tag, attachment, PDF, URL, and more; and improves syncing data across different platforms and devices.

Evernote was updated to version 10.2.4 in late October, adding the capability to write quick notes and clip screenshots with the Evernote Helper companion app (via the Evernote icon in the menu bar), ensures the F2 keyboard shortcut will start editing a note title, improves the use of drag-and-drop to merge notes, reopens the same selected notes and windows when Evernote is restarted, and ensures that importing non-ENEX files no longer creates a new notebook.

Evernote still offers a free Basic plan, which limits syncing to two devices and monthly data uploads to 60 MB. A Premium plan is available for $7.99, which opens up syncing to unlimited devices, increases the monthly data upload limit to 10 GB, enables PDF annotation, and provides offline access to both desktop and mobile devices. Eligible students can get a 50% discount on a year of Evernote Premium. (Free from Evernote or the Mac App Store, 139 MB, macOS 10.10+)

  1. Evernote seems to be in trouble with its users. The 10.2.* updates have broken a lot of features and messed up a lot of workflows. I went back to 7.14 to get proper handling of PDFs; get Evernote back in the share menu; the ability to follow evernote: links to notes from other applications; proper handling of dual displays (how do you even mess that up on a Mac?); and ability to drag and drop in and out of notes.

    It’s particularly annoying that I got hit with the update right before a major work deadline, and two days after my Evernote subscription had renewed.

    I hope they turn this around. I really do. At some point, Evernote 7.14 won’t work anymore. Then, after being with Evernote since 2011, it will be time to go to OneNote or something similar.
