Re-ordering bullets via cut-paste broken, but Evernote Support says it's the expected behavior

Recommended Posts

Evernote recently broke how I cut-and-paste bullets to re-order them in a list. From the dawn of text editing, if you cut a bullet point that includes the trailing line break, paste it back into the list, then it moves the bullet point.  Examples of this include: (1) Google Docs, (2) Word, (3) all the past versions of Evernote prior to a few months ago, and (4) even this editor that I'm currently typing in.

Yet, Evernote decided to break this recently, and when I contacted Evernote Support, they tell me that it is the "expected behavior."

I've recorded video of this behavior in both Evernote Mac and Evernote Web:

Can some other Evernote users confirm whether this "expected behavior" makes sense?  If not, please help me convince Evernote to change this behavior back to how it's worked for the last several years.

Windows? Mac? Android? iOS? Web?

I've tested on Mac and Web (with video/gifs of the behavior in my post), and the behavior is broken: on Web, extra bullet points are added, and on Mac, extra whitespace is added.

I also tested on Android, and the behavior is not broken: no extra whitespace or bullet points are added.
