Evernote for Mac 6.0.6 Released


SoftwareMarcus

Idea

Our official release notes are:
 
Various bug and stability fixes including search improvements.
 
New features include:
  • Presentation Mode Auto-Layout - Divide your presentation into multiple slides with a single click.

The search improvements in this version require reindexing notes.  Indexing allows for faster searches. Depending on how many notes you have, this may take some time and could impact performance temporarily.
 
The unofficial release notes:
The following are more detailed notes on what we fixed and updated.
 
1) We spent a bunch of time on search.  We put some fixes in for Spotlight Search and advanced search.  Also a number of Asian character search issues have been fixed.  We also spent a lot of time trying to reduce the CPU impact of indexing.  I received one report from a customer who was having performance issues and he told me 6.0.6 has fixed his issue.  I don't know if all performance issues have been fixed by 6.0.6 but my hope is that performance issues that were caused by heavy indexing will be greatly improved.
 
2) We improved our attachment infrastructure and made it more reliable.  This might not be entirely obvious from everyday use but sometimes there would be sync issues and other problems because of the old attachment infrastructure which have now been fixed.
 
3) We also fixed a number of crashing bugs and continue to work on the highest impact issues.  If you crash and see a dialog when you start Evernote please send us this information.  Sending us your crash reports via that dialog allows us to count the issues that people run into and I prioritize the issues to be fixed based on the number of people being impacted.
 
We'll be monitoring the forum but if there is something new that has cropped up in the 6.0.6 release specifically please reply to this thread so it's easier for us to spot and reply.

Easy test for this issue: will the exported HTML open in a browser? If so, it's probably a Microsoft problem. If not, then it's probably an Evernote problem.

 

Also, did anyone check location 2 in the output HTML file? That's what the error indication is pointing at...

Any ETA on the timing for APPLE iTunes to release the update?  I'm debating about downloading direct.   :)    

 

I always download direct :)

 

Why wait?

 

Evernote is a large company.. And has the required credibility not to destroy your system from 3rd party malware etc.

@Jack, thanks for the clarification on Note Sharing.  Worthy of an EN KB article I think.

 

However, the main point of many of us  is that we would prefer to see Sharing decoupled from Work Chat.

For many of us, we and our recipients ONLY want to share information, and have no interest in Chat for most of our use cases.

I can see how sharing is useful  in Work Chat, but we need it as a separate feature that is clear and easy to use.

 

Thanks.

 

Your clutching at straws citing alterior motives to get to your disproven conclusion...

 

There are many ways to share notes with someone without evernote account without using workchat.

 

I dont see what point you are getting to.

 

You are attacking Work Chat, on a point that has nothing to do with it.

 

You have deviated so far from your original critique..

 

You are a VERY experienced Evernote user.  So you know better.

I am getting several notes that do not have that tag on them. And several that should have that tag do not appear. I have tried tagging the notes in both single editing and bulk editing. Same effect. My edits from several hours ago have still not refreshed.

 

I was thinking the issue was the tags were not getting saved to the notes. But when I sync, I can see my changes update on my Android phone. The issue seems to be caching of tag data in the Mac client.

 

I saw similar delays for a few hours after I updated to Ver 6.0.6.

You might try letting Evernote run for several hours, maybe even overnight, and restarting your Mac a few times.

 

It is really unbelievable that we users have to nursemaid Evernote like this.

Evernote has really turned into a HIGH maintenance (like you would normally apply to a person) app.

BUG/REGRESSION: 

Version: 6.0.6 (451290 Direct)

 

You cannot add a link to selected text when editing notes within the main app window (i.e. in the right pane). It only works if you pop the note out into it's own window (by double-clicking on the note in the note list).
 

Steps to recreate:

  1. Create/edit a note
  2. Type a line of text, not a URL, that you want to turn into a link. (ex: "this link")
  3. Highlight the text from step 2
  4. Do one of the following:
    • cmd + K
    • Right-click > Link > Add...
    • Format menu > Link > Add...

Expected result: The "enter web address for this link" box opens up

 

Actual result: Nothing happens


Again, if you open the note in a new window, this works fine.

RE:  BUG REPORT:  Evernote Export to HTML is Flawed -- Will NOT Open in MS Word

Ver:  6.0.6, 6.0.5, 5.5.2

 

Mac OS X 10.9.5 Mavericks

 

@Marcus:  Perhaps a big clue is that the same Note (shared from EN Mac) exported by EN Win 5.8.3 imports without any problem into MS Word 11 Mac

 

Here's the shared Note URL that you can try for yourself:

https://www.evernote.com/l/ABuAx8e9f9VFI7IfIUlZ1mzQikTkGcPduUE

 

 

The issue is that MS Word doesn't read standard HTML.  The HTML that Word is reading is a special version just for Microsoft Office apps and is really an alternative to Microsoft Office's own formats.  This format was a precursor to the new Open Standard formats used today (DOCX, XLSX, PPTX).  If you save a Word document in HTM format you'll see that there are a lot of unique meta tags that only Word can read.   

 

The HTML exported by Evernote is readable by any browser and should be consumable by any app that reads standard HTML.  Word is not currently one of those apps  and until Word changes to support standard HTML I don't think this use case will work very well.

<highlight is mine>

 

Marcus, thanks for the response and detailed explanation.

 

However, my tests don't seem to support your assertion that Word does NOT support standard HTML.

As I stated in my bug report:

 

 

The BUG seems to be in the Evernote HTML export, because I was able to successfully import into Word a HTML file saved using FireFox of a web page.

 

While it is true that Word adds a lot of unneeded, perhaps non-standard, HTML tags when you export from Word, but that does NOT mean it requires those tags for import.

 

I know that Evernote does not like Microsoft, but I hope you would acknowledge that MS Word is one of the most popular apps in the world, and probably the most popular word processing app.  I would expect there are lots of Evernote users who might need to import some of their Notes into MS Word.

 

Please take a look at what is causing this issue of importing into Word.  Maybe it is something simple that you could easily fix.

I can crash the app regularly by simply shifting the columns around in the view. I've been submitting reports with each crash. Should I also submit a bug report via support?

 

I don't think one bug report would hurt, and it might help a lot.  Evernote usually doesn't respond to a crash report, but does to bug reports via a support ticket, especially if you are a Premium/Business user.

I've installed it again, but no results.

 

The notes are still in my account. I see them on my ipad

 

Edwin, not sure what happened here.  Can you try signing out and signing back in to see if that fixes the issue.

 

 

Cute & Paste with mouse or keyboard shortcuts does not work within notes

 

AJ_Asia, I've never seen copy and paste fail in the note editor using 6.0.6.  Does anyone else see this issue?  I believe there may be a Yosemite issue with Copy and Paste getting lost but not sure.  I don't think this is an Evernote issue.  Try rebooting your computer and see if this fixes the issue.

 

 

@JMichael: Note Menu - More Sharing -> Email a Copy...

 

Thanks Jack.  I knew about that option, but it is NOT the same as sharing.

With sharing, the recipient always has the latest update/version -- not so  with email.

 

Please respect the wishes of many, many of your users, and decouple sharing and Work Chat, and make shared Notes and Notebooks like they used to be -- visible in a web browser without Evernote, with an option to add to your (the recipient's) Evernote account.

 

 

JMichael, I don't think you could share notes in 5.5.  You could only share notebooks.  You might be thinking of the Share Public Note feature which is still there. Just click on the drop down next to the Share button and select Copy Public Link.

Unhappy face :( In another thread you said the search visibility on half screen would be fixed... I was so excited for this little change and restructuring of space.. 

 

If I search in notes... I guess its kind of ok...

 

But if I search inside a notebook it is not okay...

 

How am i supposed to search or click in that box...

 

Sure clicking the little two arrows right and then the tiny white block that pops up, enables me to type what I want... (Not intuitive - Figured it out somehow, by just trying to type... (Does not create an expanded search bar, etc.)

 

But its a real mish-mash cramped up solution...

 

 

 

Thanks for screenshot.  That definitely illustrates the problem nicely.  Got it.

BUG REPORT:  Sync Fails for Notes with Only Added Images

Ver:  6.0.6

Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.1

 

I just added images (no other changes) to three Notes using EN Mac 5.5.2.

When I sync another Mac running 6.0.6, the changed/sync'd Notes do not appear.

But when I quit Ver 6.0.6, and reopen it, the Notes appear without doing a sync.

 

Other notes where I make text changes do sync properly, as well as web clippings (Chrome).

 

 

JMichael, Thanks for helping us test.  I can't reproduce the issue you're seeing.  Here's what I tried.

 

1) I've created a couple of blank notes using 5.5.  

2) I click the sync button on 5.5 to make sure it's synced.

3) I open Evernote 6.0.6 pointed to the same account and I click the sync button.

4) I see the 2 notes I created appear.

 

I then tried this with some images and it also worked for me. 

 

Does this always happen for you?  If this happens again can you check the Evernote website to make sure that it uploaded and synced with the service.  If it doesn't appear on the website then the issue is with the 5.5. sync and not 6.0.6.

@Marcus:  Thanks for your testing  and response.

 

I have updated my bug report in my post #16 above.

 

As you will see from my new test, I verified the update/sync of Ver 5.5.2 with EN Web.

 

Yes, this is happening consistently.

BUG REPORT:  Can't Use Tag Filter -- Keeps on Flashing & Clearing My Entry

Ver:  6.0.6 (NEW Bug)

Mac OS X 10.9.5 Mavericks & 10.10.1 Yosemite

 

I have two MBAs that exhibit the same behavior, which prevents me from using the Tag Filter.

 

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Click on the Tag filter icon/button
  2. EN displays a dropdown list of tags, with an entry field that says "Find a tag"
  3. Start to enter the Tag name
  4. The dropdown list continues to flash, and clears my entry
  5. I cannot find/select any tag because EN is clearing what I type.

ATTN:  Evernote Developers and QA Teams

  • Do you guys actually test the basic features of the app before you release it?
  • I'm not trying to be mean, I'm very serious.
  • I can't understand how such a basic bug got past QA
  • This BUG is occurring on two different Macs, with different OS
  • This BUG did NOT exist in Ver 6.0.3 or 6.0.5
  • So you introduced a NEW bug in Ver 6.0.6 which disables one of the primary features of Evernote.

I trusted you after installing on one Mac for a few days.  But because I didn't test EVERY feature of Evernote, I got burned.

Sorry, but you have now lost my trust, and it will be very hard to regain.

BUG REPORT:  Search for "notebook:trash" Returns ALL Notes


Ver:  6.0.6 (& maybe prior)


Mac OS X 10.9.5 Mavericks


 


Enter "notebook:trash" (without quotes) in the Search box and Evernote returns ALL Notes.


 


Expected Behavior:  Return ONLY those Notes in the Trash


 


But in any case it should NEVER return all Notes.


 


Please fix to provide support for search within the EN Trash, as requested by many users.

Again, if you open the note in a new window, this works fine.

 

Can anyone else reproduce this issue?  I don't see this issue.  Are you still seeing this problem?

 

 

As somebody else posted, copy and paste does not work!

What type of QA is there when something so fundamental can slip through the cracks.

 

This is a note taking app... copy and pasting... um 'notes' from other sources is a very typical workflow.

 

Please fix ASAP and please test before releasing new versions.

 

I've seen a couple of comments about copy and paste not working but I can't reproduce the issue.  Is anyone else seeing it.  Obviously there's an issue so it's just a matter of figuring out exactly where the problem lies.  If you see this again, please describe what you're copying and where you're pasting it to.   The way this technically works is we put a number of formats on the clipboard such as HTML or plain text and then the second app will pick the format they want to paste.  So the issue could be in the format we place on the clipboard or in the way the 3rd party app interprets that.  Also keep in mind that you have to use the Copy Image menu command to copy and paste images.

 

BUG REPORT: Attachments set as "View as attachments" open randomly expanded after evernote restart

 

Evernote 6.0.6, OSX 10.10.2

 

After upgrading to 6.0.6 Evernote has started expanding attachments on notes. This takes place after restarting Evernote and opening a note. After manually changing the note back to "View as Attachment" the attachment stays as an icon until next evernote restart. This does not happen to all attachments in a note but randomly to some attachments in a note. At least powerpoint, word, excel and pdf files have been expanding, so it is not only about a certain file type. 

 

This keeps happening to attachments that have been present in my notes for quite a while and flipping the default view under clipping between "inline" and "as attachment" makes no difference. 

 

 

Also, spotlight search into notes does no longer work. Trying out the EV reinstalls, reindexing etc make no difference.

 

I'm able to reproduce this issue on some notes and we'll investigate.  Thanks for reporting this.

 

 

After installing 6.0.6 and forcing spotlight to reindex I still can NOT search for evernote notes in spotlight.

 

This is incredibly frustrating, annoying and frankly difficult to comprehend.

 

As a paying customer I'm telling you that my productivity is suffering because you can't get this right.

 

Bill

 

Bill, I think we've found the issue.  Michael was right on this one.  This issue appears more often for Mac App Store customers.  There's an issue in the path to our spotlight importer.  Again more weirdness with things being in different places because of the sandboxing.

 

 

Can't Read Shared Note Without Evernote Account -- Unacceptable

 

Just updated to EN Mac 6.0.6, and AFAIK you can't share a Note except via Work Chat, and the recipient can't view it without an Evernote account.  

  • This is totally unacceptable
  • I don't want to chat, I just want to share a Note
  • The recipient doesn't want (and will NOT create) an Evernote account -- they just want to read/view the Note as simply and quickly as possible.

Here's a screenshot of the recipient's email notification:

 

EN-Mac-606-Shared-Note-EMail.png

 

Totally agree. You're now forcing a less efficient workflow because of having to Copy Public Link and manually paste it into an email.

 

 

I think there might be some confusion between Public Link and Email a Note.  Public Link is the feature that allows one to see a note in a web browser and it continues to live under the Share menu as it always has.  If you're looking for Email Note which embeds an HTML representation of a note in an email, this continues to live on the right click menu on the note list under More Sharing or under the Note main menu.

Thanks for screenshot.  That definitely illustrates the problem nicely.  Got it. 

 

 

:)

 

Also the Tags are also compromised... It is harder to see in the half screen screenshot... So I drew a blue line to indicate the cut off point... You cant enter more tags or edit them.

 

post-201443-0-27161000-1423090254_thumb.

 

So Its the tag cut-off issue on half screen.. And the previously mentioned Search, bar cut-off. (previous attached image)

BUG REPORT:  False Detection of Note Edit


14 Dec 2014


 


This BUG is still not fixed in Ver 6.0.6.


I have verified this BUG on two different Macs, using different Mac OS.


I have updated my post above.


 


Steps to Reproduce in Ver 6.0.6


  1. Restart your Mac
  2. Make sure Evernote app is NOT running
  3. Start Evernote 6.0.6 app
  4. Enter a Search in the Search Box
  5. Click on one or more Notes in the Snippet Note List whose Updated Date is NOT today.
  6. Set the Note List view to "Side view list", and Sort by Updated Date, Descending
  7. Notice that some of the Notes that you clicked on in Step #5 have an Updated Date of today.
Link to post

If I filter my notebook by tag(s), then attempt to expand the width of the Title column in the view ('Top List View'), it crashes.  This is very annoying as you can imagine.

 

On another note, why does the left panel scroll up to the top after every tag I command click on?  The windows desktop application seems to be better with these interactions. (Windows at work, Mac at home).

 

pjbss, thanks for completing the dialog that appears when you relaunch the app after the crash.  This is actually the most important thing to complete because this sends the crash report directly to us and I monitor this crash database consistently.   We'll try to fix the top issues every release.  I was able to find your crash log and we'll investigate the issue.
