Auto-scrolling of notes?


Go to solution Solved by Shane D.,

Recommended Posts

hi,

Recently, I noticed a strange behavior.

When I move my mouse up/down over a note it scrolls up/down. This is good for reading, but horrible for editing - e.g. I want to move mouse towards toolbar to edit something, but at the same time note scrolls up and I loose context...

I use the newest FF and Windows. This problem occurs only in Web Evernote. No problem with/inside Google docs or Office365 online.

Any ideas?

I agree. I came here to learn how to disable this. The note scrolls and I loose my place when I take the mouse to the top of the browser to change tabs or to the bottom of the screen to change apps. I prefer scrolling on my own.

Me too. When I try to click the tool bar at the top of a page, it automatically scrolls up. This is annoying when I edit the page using the tool bar.

I can stop this auto-scrolling by reverting the UI to the "classic version" in the settings menu, but other parts of the UI also goes back to the classic style and maybe not recommended.

I am using evernote web on Windows 10 and Firefox 72.0.1 (64bits).

this is very annoying behavior, especially since it's a new "default behavior" that I cannot disable.

this does not happen if I use Tusk (which is a electron app so it's odd this is different behavior than a web client)

Version: 0.23.0
Electron: 4.2.2
Chrome: 69.0.3497.128
Node: 10.11.0
V8: 6.9.427.31-electron.0
OS: Linux x64 5.3.0-26-generic

Yepp. I've just installed firefox on my linux laptop to verify. Exactly the same behaviour (automatic scrolling). 

I'm not sure this is intuitive. One thing that surprises me is that when the cursor leaves the editing window by the top or the bottom the content continues to scroll (for the web developers: onMouseLeave is either not set, or it does not cancel scrolling). This behaviour could do with a feature toggle.

Btw, chrome doesn't do this at the moment (chrome evernote version 6.3.1, firefox 5.28.0)

I've tested for this in Opera, and it does not happen there. But in Firefox, yes, it definitely happens, and apparently only with Evernote. So there is some kind of odd interaction going on between EN and FF.

I generally don't use FF for Evernote, so it would be helpful if others who have Premium subscriptions report this directly to Evernote's tech support: https://help.evernote.com/hc/requests/new.

A couple of people (including me) are discussing this in another thread. It would be helpful if you would join that too. In particular, so far three of us have experienced it in Firefox, but not in other browsers.

Hi, thank you guys for verification!

Yep, it only happens in FF. No problems with Chrome@MacBook.

 

@Dave-in-Decatur Good idea, thanks. I have just reported this issue to support too.

 

EDIT

I also noticed some problems with using of Arrow keys to move cursor in Web Notes - only at FF.

Can confirm the same behavior on FF in MacOSX, and I share the same complaints 😠

I could imagine this being useful in certain situations, as @Kolmir noted:

This is good for reading, but horrible for editing...

If this is feature, it may have value as a user configurable one that defaults to off.

I've noticed this as well as the autoscrolling, both in Firefox.

Hello,
I am a premium user. I am a freelance software developer and  Ubuntu Linux + Firefox + Evernote Web are my daily drivers. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a good client on Linux (Tusk no way, sorry).

First time, I noticed the problem I supposed it is a firefox or system bug then I realized that it only happens on Ubuntu. I can confirm this annoying behaviour while using Firefox 72.0.1 on Ubuntu 18.04.3.

Hopefully, I instaled Chromium (open source version of Chrome) and scroll does not happen there. I'll continue to use Chromium only for EN until this bug is fixed.

Same here, both problems in FireFox Developer 73

Has there been a fix implemented for this yet? This auto-scroll functionality really hinders productivity and forces me to use the previous version of Evernote in web (also using Firefox on Windows 10)

I too am having this odd behavior - using FF on two separate Windows machines. I came here to post a note for posterity. I'm hopeful I'll be notified of responses when the solution is presented.

So when could we expect the problem to be resolved? It's quite difficult for me to switch to the previous version of the Web client because the formatting abilities available in the new one have already been used in many notes.

Thanx for working so hard on it. As of right now I am still facing this issue in Mozilla Firefox, on a windows 10 computer.

I'd like to stay updated on the progress.

I had the same issue from over a month - notes auto scroll up or down when the mouse pointer is moved up or down. I use mozilla firefox on windows. I use very long notes and use evernote few hours a  day and this is very annoying. Please fix this asap

Still waiting on a fix! ❤️ Anyone have workarounds in the meantime?

Unfortunately not. It's risky to mess with the scripts behind editor.

As a dirty trick you can use Chrome browser instead of FF.

(In Chrome you can access the newest version 6.5.0 of EvN web editor. In FF only the older one version = 5.28 is available)

Tthis morning the problem seems to have been solved, there is no more auto-scrolling here

Yep, there is a new (minor) version (5.29) available online. Problem seems fixed now :)

FYI, most people are still being served 5.x (5.29 as of today), even on Chrome. The 6.x versions are in more limited testing.

Has there been a regression? I have just started noticing this on my system. I'm using evernote web client v6.7.1 on Google chrome 79.0.3945.130 (on debian linux).

Placing the mouse pointer at the top or bottom of a note text area initiates scrolling, as per the above reports. It may have been happening for a while without my noticing, as I use keyboard shortcuts mostly, so the mouse usually only traverses those regions when leaving the tab or if I'm doing formatting.

Super frustrating, naturally.

Tested with Chrome 80.0, EvN 6.7.1 on macOS -> no problems with auto-scrolling, all works fine.

FF and EvN 5.30 (on Windows) also OK.
