Recommended Posts

This issue was noted by @notetakeingguy in the beta process and continues in version 10.4.3

Take some text which is prepared in Word including bullet points.  Here's an example...

As it appears in Word

THis is some text from a document which has a bulleted list in place.

  • First bullet
  • Second item in the list which will be long enough to wrap around a paragraph at the end of the line
  • Third point to make it something

Now here’s a second piece of blank text…

  • Fourth point
  • Fifth item in the list
  • Item number 6

Closing text

 

Copy and paste this into a note in Evernote v10.x

In fact it seems to be pasting all bulleted text. I can copy from these forums and achieve exactly the same.

The bulleted lists are concatenated.

Try it again with one of the lists bulleted and the other numbered...

Paste this into Evernote v10 and the numbered section is bumped below the closing text...

10.7.6. is not yet announced (if you look for updates from the app, you don’t get it), but if you go to the EN web site, the downloader will send you this release. So it is no beta. I think we will read here in the forum in the next days something official. I installed it yesterday on my Mac, everything o.k.
