I sit here frustrated, no more like pissed. I am so tired of software companies “improving” their software only to remove core features. I am tired of my workflow being at their mercy.
I don’t use Evernote in a “critical” manner… mainly for snippets of text, recipes, and other things I want to save for possible future use. Well they made this big deal about a shared code platform improvement blah blah… released a new version for MacOS that is all shiny. Haven’t used it in a while but today I go to clip so text from an email to evernote. Highlight the text and my OSX service “send to evernote” doesn’t work. Downloaded the little PopClip app to see if that would work…nope.
Turns out sometime in the last month or so they have completely removed support for OSX sharing sheets and scripting. Reading their community forums lots of people are upset it seems and the only solution is to install a legacy version which we all know won’t work forever. Another user said it appears they are using “Electron” as their app platform which doesn’t support those features so its likely they never will. Evernote has to realize the primary usage for their product is to import things from other places right? How this company can continue to make the dumbest decisions is beyond me.
Does anyone have any solution to copy some text in an app (in particular Mail.app) keeping the formatting and adding it to the new Evernote? I have not been able to find anything.
Moreover I am seriously looking into a new solution and leaning to the side of something I host myself. Perhaps on a DigitalOcean or Linode VM or I think my synology has a notes app. I am tired of feeling held hostage by these companies when they remove features and force my workflow useless.
