I lost my high DPI support after installing this upgrade (Lenovo X1 Carbon, 2560x1440): everything looks fuzzy. I was able to fix it by checking "disable display scaling on high DPI settings" in the program properties dialog. So it seems this switch is interpreted the wrong way?

Bug Report : Using the latest version of Evernote, downloaded from above Link. 

 

Context Feature - The Context feature is displaying Notes from Other Websites, but only the WALL STREET JOURNAL website is opening. Other sites like TechCrunch and some others are displaying Title Contexts, but clicking them, they won't open. Please check this..

The 5.8.4.6870 version renders blurry text even when it's running on the same display it used to run on without scaling (just a normal HD monitor, not high DPI).  I tried enabling the Windows 8.1 compatibility mode "disable display scaling on high-DPI displays", which fixes most applications with this problem, but Evernote ignores this option and renders exactly the same.


 


I suppose Windows 10 might fix this problem, but that's too long to wait.  Evernote needs to implement the compatibility mode.

@Justin: I think that there's general appreciation for the "remindertime:<relative>+<n>" fix that came along with this build. Thanks for that. It appears that the search grammar page ought to be updated on that point, as well.

We just launch the native web browser for non-WSJ articles. If that's not working, you may need to restore your browser's default associations.

You have to restart to get the fix.

The 5.8.4.6870 version becomes unresponsive (Evernote not responding) when I try to edit a business Card note.

 

1. I create a new note via iPhone camera, business card photo.

2. I sync note.

3. I try to change/edit the note in Evernote for Windows.

4. I receive "evernote not responding" notice.

 

Note: I am able to edit the business card note in my iPhone/iPad evernote app.

Thank you, rebooting fixed it.  (seems odd to be writing those last-millenia words here in 2015, but oh well)

Having issues installing this version.  This is my first install of Evernote on this computer and I am receiving a bootstrapper error:

 

(.\Bootstapper.cpp:915) 0x643:Fatal error during installation

 

Running Windows 8.1 Pro Version 6.3.9600 Build 9600

 

I get a window with the Bootstrapper error and also several windows that with a similar error:

 

Could not write value to key \Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt\Clip Image.  Verify that you have sufficient access to that key, or contact your support personnel.

 

I am running the install "As Administrator"

 

Running IE 11.0.9600.17690

 

Any suggestions are appreciated!

 

Thanks.

I'm having the same problem as O'Robhartach...  New Windows 8.1 install...

Did you obtain a resolution for this error?  I've received the same error and reached out to Evernote and have been unable to resolve the problem.

I'm running Win 10 and this problem just started for me.

I have had this problem for a few weeks - decided to wait until upgrading to Windows 10 to see if it resolved the issue but it didn't.  I am considering uninstalling Internet Explorer completely (I use Firefox) to see if this helps, but after that I'm at a complete loss.  Am pretty fed up as I have just upgraded to EN Premium and can't use it the way I want to which is primarily as a way of prioritising tasks / emails with the Outlook add-in.   I'm surprised at the lack of support for this error as it seems to be cropping up quite a bit.

Hi DPI support is gone on my computer too.

 

Running Windows 10-64 bit; it does not matter whether or not in the shortcut I checked "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings." It's just as fuzzy both ways (after fully closing Evernote in between making changes.) Previously--a release or two ago--I got a sharp display with that option checked. :(
