Hi.  If you're talking about the pasted file shown as 'unknown' or a spinning arrow,  that's already been reported and tickets raised with Support.  If not,  please tell us more - what's your device / OS / Evernote version and exactly what happens when you copy/ paste.  There's no particular fix yet,  though if you're on a desktop,  pasting to the desktop,  then copy/ pasting from there may help - plus you can try merging notes together and then moving content around within the merged note.

hi there.

i am on windows 11.

i used to make notes with either png or jpegs of screenshots.

one day, the note has become large, so i want to separate some "chapters" into another notes.

control c and control v the images from the old note to the new one.

at first it looked fine, but later the images dont appear and there are rotating icon ( it looks like loading icons ) that keep on spinning forever.

there are too many. saving attachments one by one to desktop and then do it one by one to a new note, does not make any sense. why should i pay evernote annually if i still have to do all those ?

copy pasting between notes should be easy and straight forward, this is 2023, not 1970.

thank you.


but since then my problem has become more complex and that wont help me tidy things up.

now i have two separate notes, what if i need to take a few part from the first note, a few more part from the second note, and move both to a third note?

It still easier to work on a note level.

Duplicate the two initial notes, merge them and erase what’s not needed.

 I am not telling it wouldn’t be nice if copying/moving content would be easier. I just tell you the IMHO best way to do it NOW.

i appreciate your idea, mr PinkElephant. why didnt i think of that in the first place??? i could have avoided my current situation.


btw how do i merge two notes?

Be aware that merging notes, specifically notes with images, do not work correctly currently...at least for me:
