Greg Courville 0 Posted July 31, 2014 Share Posted July 31, 2014 This is a behavior that's been bugging me for a while. If I try to attach a file with a .txt extension, instead of actually attaching it, Evernote just takes the contents and dumps them into the note as if I had typed them.I'd like it if the "Attach files" button just attached files, rather than having weird per-file-type behaviors. I can't think of a single situation where I've wanted to dump the contents of a text file directly into a note, but if I did, it seems like I could easily open the file, hit Ctrl-A, then copy and paste the contents.On a related note, why is the "view as attachment" option greyed-out for images? Sometimes I want to attach an image file (again, the key word here being attach) but don't necessarily want it blown up to fill the full page width (which sometimes means the whole viewport) and completely break up the flow of the note. In this case, wouldn't it make more sense to follow the usual convention of having a separate "insert image" button next to the "attach files" button? I've been having to work around these issues by giving files nonsense extensions like .txt.foo before attaching them. It's really clumsy and awkward and makes Evernote more of a pain to use than it should be. Maybe your UX experts will disagree with me on what the default behavior for the attachment button should be, but at the very least I'd like to have the ability to attach text and image files as attachments, even if it requires me to go uncheck a box in the preferences dialog or something.
