Paste web links stopped to work correct


Recommended Posts

Hi,
Copying from Firefox, using add-on https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/copy-title-or-url , anchored link.
Pasting to existing note.
This worked fine before.

FYI: In the local Evernote storage SQLite file, the 'old' link stored as
<a href="https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4846340/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1" rev="en_rl_none">Hidden Figures (2016) - IMDb</a>  - Good!
now:
href=&quot;<a href="https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4846340/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1">https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4846340/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1</a>&quot;&gt;Hidden Figures (2016) - IMDb | <a href="https://www.imdb.com/">https://www.imdb.com/</a>&lt;/a&gt; - WTF?

Evidently the code is being converted into ASCII.  Copy and paste into a text editor and see what the code looks like. It could easily be that either the website has changed or a recent update to the browser has changed things.

Code looks like supposed - anchored link:
<a href="https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4846340/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1">Hidden Figures (2016) - IMDb | https://www.imdb.com/</a>

Ok, whatever, are you able to create not like that? How?

Still confused here - and I'm using v6.25,  not v10.  I tracked down the original web link here...

757661623_ScreenClip2.png.28296cb8f8f63a4e2d694f145600deac.png

And copy / pasted to a note... (via Ctrl+C / Ctrl+V from the browser page) - which got me exactly what it says in the address bar.

Which I also Ctrl-K'd into my own link (you'll have to take my word as to the content)

- and synced the final result.  Also Simplified and Removed Formating in that note.  Nothing changed.

 

So it doesn't appear that v6.25 has changed...

Since Evernote 6 is frozen, unchanged and not receiving any support you really need to work out what else has changed on your PC. I wish you success in resolving this.

My guess - Evernote changed Evernote Markup Language engine http://xml.evernote.com/pub/enml2.dtd

Probably they did it to fix/improve Evernote 10, but broke functionality of Evenote 6.
Look at this article https://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/enml.php

ENML is formally defined in http://xml.evernote.com/pub/enml2.dtd. The content of each note within the Evernote service must strictly comply with this ENML DTD. The service will validate a note's content against this DTD before accepting any call to NoteStore.createNote or NoteStore.updateNote.

Yes, this way it works.
But before it worked with just Paste of anchored link. As well as Cope-Paste of Hidden Figures inside Evernote also worked.

Could you please do some experiments for me?

1. Copy-Paste Hidden Figures link you created to the same note.
   I had same link before, but plain text now.
2. Copy-Paste
    <a href="https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4846340/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1" rev="en_rl_none">Hidden Figures (2016) - IMDb</a>
   to your note (it's the way how Evernote saves links in the database)
   Before I had Hidden Figures, now I have just the text above.

Thanks!

What you asked is more or less what I did already,  but here you go - 

  1. A copied link gets me... another link
  2. Copied HTML gets me the full content of the HTML with the link part highlighted in blue as a link
  3. When I created plain text and Ctrl+K'd the link window open,  then pasted the link,  I got a text link.

All as expected for me...

1. N1 doesn't work for me!!
Do you mean link like that: Hidden Figures
or like that: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4846340/
?

2. Please do the same, but hit Enter button after paste

What is your exact version of Evernote? 6.25.? I have 6.25.3.9348

Pasting a raw URL only sometimes results in a link rather than just text. I 

So https://code-boxx.com/simple-pwa-example/ in my V10 Evernote pastes as simple text. Other times, I past a URL in there and it turns blue - like a link.

Also, clicking on some that are blue does not go to the browser, it brings up an Evernote home page. Others go to the default browser.


Something is messed up here, but I can't find the pattern. I see some URL's in blue on a page, some as text, some of the blue work, some don't - all on the same Evernote page.

Evernote 10.40.9 on MACOS, although with the new rewrite, it should be relatively platform independent.

Hi.  Please search the forum for issues to do with links.  This particular thread is for Windows v6.25 and you should be able to find discussions with more relevant content.

URLs in general are meant to appear as clickable links,  not plain text.  It is a known problem that links containing the word 'home' in any context will go to Evernote's Home Page for some weird reason.  Evernote are aware and are fixing that issue.

@Mesoman Sometimes an URL may not be recognized. Select it, right click and set the hyperlink yourself.

About the URLs leading to the Home page instead of the URL: It is a known bug, fixed with the desktop version 10.41.

When you go to the download page on the EN website, you already get it.

I find that if a URL pastes as plain text, putting punctuation or a space after it will generally activate the link. I have no idea why this happens, but fortunately it's fairly easy to correct. But that's in Windows; may be different on Mac.

Yep - same experience;  it may be something to do with the way that the system 'checks' a word for spelling when there's a space or punctuation after it,  signifying that (as far as you're concerned) you've finished typing it. - Otherwise you'd be peppered by 'wrong spelling' errors all the way through until completion.  Same process may apply to adding the URL link and formatting.

Thanks! Based on posts above, I tried putting a period after them, but that didn't work. But putting a space after it does work.

It's a bug - text editor needs to get a bit smarter. But thanks to repliers, I now have a way around it.
