Copy and Paste in Web editor loses font formatting

Recommended Posts

Evernote is great...but it's driving me mad with silly little issues that should just not be happening.

In the web-editor - Copy and paste - even within a note - keeps losing the font of the text.

I'm using Chrome to access to web editor.

I open a note. Most of my text seems to be in Gotham font, size 14. I don't know why... that seems to be the default. Can't change it anyway.

I copy that Gotham 14 text - seems to only happen when I've got multiple lines - ie. including a carriage return. Move the cursor somewhere else. Paste it.

Evernote turns that into:

  Some Gotham 14 text
  Some text in a different font - which says "Font, tT" in the menu bar at the top...ie. it doesn't really have a font....but it's not Gotham 14. Looks like it might be Verdana - but it's not the same size as any of the ones you can select yourself...slightly bigger than Gotham 14
  Some more Gotham 14 text

I don't know why it's changing the font, and why it's just some of it. Sounds like it's something to do with the carriage return/newline / multi-line text.

So every single time I copy and paste - which is quite a bit - I have to go and put the formatting back....really annoying! I would quite happily change all my notes to whatever that odd font is if it's going to keep changing text to that font - but you can't as it doesn't have a name!

Is anyone else getting the same? Seems to have started a month or two ago.

Screenshot hopefully showing the issue. Repeatable - happens everytime.

I hope Evernote starts fixing some of these basic text formatting issues soon otherwise it's going to drive me away...we shouldn't be having problems with basic text handling..
