How do I remove a code block and/or create a new line of text outside/after the code block?


Recommended Posts

After half an hour, I had to right-click and inspect, then find the proper line in that view and delete it from there. I'm not that kind of savvy with code and I don't want to have to go in there again. I'm sure there's a way to do that organically like any other formatting. I also want to be able to skip a line and type text outside a code block. Ideas? Thanks!

As I said - the way to add lines after a table or a code block is to add them before you format the space above.  Press ENTER in the note a few times,  then move back up a few lines and insert the block there.  The blank lines you created earlier will still exist and be pushed down by the formatting that is inserted into the note.

Thanks for reporting this. I can reproduce this issue and reported it to our development team to fix. In the meantime, it looks like the workaround @gazumped offered is a good option or temporarily disabling the code block (by clicking the code block icon on the toolbar) adding a line and then re-enabling code block.

Any update on this?  I am still experiencing the issue.

We are now 2018, I must assume the development team has already discarded this ticket? Not really what I would expect from a service as big as Evernote to have users do 'workarounds' for this. Hoping this will shed some light on the matter! 

(Might be unrelated, so I am gonna make a new thread about this, but the button for adding code blocks disappeared on me today.)
(Also when on latest firefox - w7, the texteditor does not open when you want to reply to a thread. Only the attachements input pops up.)

Don’t understand the problem:

When I insert a code block and write into it, it does format it as code-as expected

When I want to continue in normal text, I simply click below the code block. The cursor is placed there, and I can start typing in standard format setting

If I want to remove a code block, I select and delete it.

If I want to convert the content into standard text, I put the cursor into the code block and select from the + menu the code block option again. This converts the code block into standard text.

Everything works smoothly, and pretty intuitively. Maybe you should switch over to the new editor, in case you are still using the old version.
