copy and paste from outlook no worky


Recommended Posts

Having this exact same issue.  Highlighting text in Mac Outlook, copying and then pasting in Evernote does not work.  I can paste the text in other applications, but not Evernote.  This is killing my productivity and I'll need to switch to a different note taking application.

On the Mac, I got it to work by using shift-cmd-v.   Look in the edit menu for "Paste and Match Style" . I never would have thought of it because it CHANGES the style from White on Black to Black on White.

I shall have to change the meaning of the word "Match" in the dictionary.  ;)

It's been driving me crazy--and that is a pretty long drive!

I've noticed this behavior and found it to be somewhat unpredictable but just figured something out:  I can copy/paste from Outlook into Evernote as long as Dark Mode isn't enabled on the email message itself. In my Outlook for Mac v16.37, there's a button called "Switch Background" which will toggle light/dark mode on the message content. As long it's toggled to the light background, copy/paste into Evernote seems to work just fine for me.

This method fixed the problem, but we still want to use Dark Mode in Outlook and still can copy and paste content into Evernote. Why does an easy task become a trouble? I'm a paid user and very disappointed. How can I report this issue to expedite the fixing?

I mostly posted this for the folks whose workaround involves emailing from Outlook which seems like way more work than toggling off the message pane's dark display for the copy portion. Either way, I agree. That said, I think there's an entry further up this thread about filing a ticket with Evernote since discussion here doesn't mean that an issue is officially reported & will be addressed.

Same issue here. Like crobicha said, there is no way I am going to stop using dark mode. Right now, I have to copy, paste into slack, copy, paste into evernote......

Also, the only reason I am not actively beta testing the new Evernote is because it doesn't have a dark mode. I am so used to it that it freaks me out not to have it that way.

Same reason for me not using the beta, I would like to use it but not having dark-mode is a dealbreaker

I'm still having this problem with current version.  It works sometimes, but other times freezes up Evernote for a minute.  My workaround is to first paste into Notepad++ then copy that and paste into Evernote.
