wch 0 Posted September 20, 2011 Share Posted September 20, 2011 I've been using Evernote for a little while now. I like it a lot, except that I'm running into severe formatting problems. I use the Mac application, the web interface, and the iPad application -- well, I tried using the iPad app, but gave up after it messed up some of my notes.(An aside: I can't understand why there was a blog post that was so proud of having rich text for the iPad. It's somewhat rich text, with some bad unchangeable default settings -- you know,16-point double-spaced Helvetica. Did anyone actually try using the app?)One note in particular I edit a lot because it contains daily tasks and quick thoughts. It's gotten incredibly ugly and unmanageable - almost unusable. Fonts are different across systems, spacing is inconsistent, links are different colors, bulleted lists are impossible to use, I lose information sometimes when I cut and paste, the cursor inexplicably moves to the beginning and end of lines when I move up and down, and so on.Here's an example. It looks different with this web view than it does in the Mac app -- in some ways one is better, in other ways, the other is better.http://www.evernote.com/shard/s54/sh/e4 ... 9c5656ab04I know one thing I could try is to remove formatting. There are at least two problems here. The first is that sometimes it just doesn't do anything -- it doesn't change the font back to the default. The second is that sometimes I need the formatting like font sizes bold, bulleted lists, and so on. I just don't need the messed up parts of the formatting.Anyway... Is there a plan to fix these problems? I used to love using Evernote and now I kind of dread it: "Oh man, I gotta edit that note again..." I used Google Docs before to store information, and despite its other drawbacks, there were never these sorts of problems. If Evernote fixed them, it would be perfect -- right now it's almost unusable for the most basic thing: taking notes. Link to comment
