Tone Engel 8 Posted September 12, 2012 Share Posted September 12, 2012 I'm perpetually frustrated by the text editor in the Windows client.Too often an inadvertent change can't be undone. Typically its as simple as pasting something into a note and then realizing that I didn't want the formatting. It invariably proves to be impossible to undo the paste action which leaves me with a hunk of formatted text that bleeds undesired and invisible format changes into the note even after the visible content of the paste operation is deleted.Working with multi-level numerical outlines is also broken. When things get a bit complicated weird things start happening that are frustrating to work around. In a list I just created in a note, changing the indent level of a numbered line left spurious numbered blank line behind. The line can't be deleted. Only by merging and re-separating adjacent numbered lines can I cause the odd line to bubble down to an area of matching indent level whereupon I can finally get rid of it.These are just two examples.Just about every time I create a note with any kind of non-trivial formatting - something breaks and I spend a frustrating amount of time just trying to maintain my formatting.This is NOT conducive to staying focused on note taking.This is a long running issue with the Evernote client that I keep hoping will improve with each new revision.To date I don't have the feeling that any significant progress is being made in this direction.PLEASE put more time into testing the text editor.It feels very much like there's an underlying markup document schema that isn't being consistency checked across client induced operations.-Tone Engel Link to comment
