URL autorecognition


Recommended Posts

does Command-K help you? I never had good consistent results with auto-recognition with urls... so if it didn't recognize it, I would highlight the url, click Command-K, then paste again, the url in the box, hit ok, then it does it. Command-K is also good for hiding a url behind a word, so you don't have to see the actual ugly url.

This was a bug that will be fixed in our next version.

I hope you'll also fix the bug that URLs with protocols other than http:/https: are not being accepted as link targets in Evernote notes (I'm running version 5.0.4 on Mac OS X 10.8.2.) This is related to -- but not the same as -- URLs entered as text being recognized and rendered as links.

For example, I used to be able to create links in Notes with "file://localhost/..." to open files stored locally on my Mac. I was also able to create links to other applications on my iPad. (With this version of Evernote, when I use Link / Add... and enter anything that doesn't begin "http://..." or "https://...", the "OK" button doesn't become active.)

I already reported this through Premium support and have been informed that your QA team is aware of this issue, but I wanted to let anyone else who happens upon this topic (as I did) to be aware of it as well.

Exactly my problem, I want to make links to emails in the body of the note, not only in URL Source that only let you put one link.

If you paste the link is not clickable, if you use Link/add the ok button not became active.

Please make sure you also fix the bug which makes links to local files (file://xxx) not working in Evernote 5.0.5 for Mac. I can use Cmd+K to add a link to file on my hard drive, Evernote will display it formatted as a link, but clicking on it does nothing.

This used to work with pre-5 versions of Evernote!

I'm on Evernote Mac version 6.06 and the problem seems to have reappeared.  

 

Also doesn't autorecognize URLs when typed in manually, or in a form beginning with "www" (like www.address.com).  

 

And having the old problem again with file://.  

 

Don't believe any of this fail is the case with the Windows version.

I'm still seeing the same thing with Evernote 6.0.16.  Copying the URL string from from Safari 8.0.7 on Mac OS Yosemite 10.10.4 will intermittently paste into a note as free text instead of a link.  This happens 50+% of the time.  While there's the cmd-K work around, this behavior is annoying.
