Cannot scroll

Recommended Posts

When using copy/paste or the Evernote web clipper to paste a large amount of text from a website (Verizon wireless bill detail page), the text extends below the vertical space on my screen.  There is no scroll bar in the note for me to scroll down to see all of the text.  Placing the cursor near the bottom of the screen and using the down arrow likewise does not allow me to scroll down to see the rest of the note or add anything to it.  Is Evernote really this limited in the number of lines of text that can be used in a note?

I doubt your wireless bill details page would be sufficiently long as to run into any of the limits.... this I suppose it is possible if it were really really really long. 


When you are using the clipper there are several options under the word "clip" (Article, simplified article, etc). Which option is selected? Ideally in this case you'd have "Article" selected. This should capture the entire contents of the bounding box that appears, and will extend below the bottom of the display.

No, I only want the specific text I highlighted on the web page to be a part of the note.  I used the clipper and selected the highlighted text option. The result is the exact same if I use Windows Copy/paste function.  Older notes that have many more lines of text do not have this problem.  This happens when I try to create a new note.


EDIT:  Clip selection is the option I used, but it's obviously not a clipper problem, it's an Evernote app problem, because Copy/Paste results in the same error.

That is very odd. I'd like to try this out myself. Can you do the following:

Reproduce the problem using some publicly accessible website (so not your phone bill!).

Post a link to the website

Share the note and post the link to that note


I would like to see what the problematic note looks like for you, and I'd like to see if I can reproduce the problem using exactly the same website that you used.
