Keyboard Shortcut Issues When Using Dvorak

Go to solution Solved by Nick L.,

Recommended Posts


I have a bug report for Evernote for Mac v 10.0.10 build 1838 public. On my Mac, I use the Dvorak keyboard layout. In this keyboard layout, the physical N key types the letter B. In Evernote, I want to make some text bold. I highlight it and press Command-B (which in the Dvorak layout is Command-N). The text turns bold *and* Evernote creates a new note, as if I had typed Command-N. It shouldn't do that - it should only bold the highlighted text. Note that Evernote web editor behaves properly - it only bolds the text, it doesn't create a new note - and every other text editor also does the right thing - they only bold the text.
Be well!

I type using the Dvorak keyboard layout. When I try to use keyboard shortcuts in Evernote, they are often either missing or overlapping.

For example, when I hit "Ctrl + B" in the DVORAK layout (B in Dvorak is where N is in Qwerty) to turn on bolded text, it turns on bolded text AND creates a new note. When I hit "Ctrl + I" to to turn on italic text, nothing happens. Same with underline, but strikethrough works. Other hotkeys like copy, cut, paste, undo, work correctly.

I'm currently using Evernote version 10.1.7, which I believe is the most recent version.

Hi there! I don't understand why this is marked Solved. It still occurs in Mac version:

v 10.3.7 build 2018 public
Editor: v111.0.14414
Service: v1.22.6

Pressing Command-B to bold text is super-common - I do it like 50 times a day. Or, I should say, I used to - now I'm just annoyed every time I press Command-B and it creates a new note.

When do you plan to fix this?

This is an issue related to the missing app settings in EN Win v10.

You will notice it is solved when they release a version that has settings, hopefully for the keyboard as well. Sometimes they tell a little about the next release when they inform about the current one, here in the forum.

More forward guidance did not take place up to now.
