[Bug] Canb't edit Legacy Tables without breaking up table -


Recommended Posts

Enjoying the improved formatting but I am having problems with existing tables (created before this new update) that I want to edit text inside


If I am editing a paragraph inside a cell in the table and hit carage return it breaks the table apart. Likewise if I hit delete,


see attached pictures

Below is the after picture and then the before picture

There does seem to be a problem with tables - current workaround:  hit enter in the note, Ctrl-Z to undo, click on another note, and then back to the original and editing then works. (H/t Cal)

Hope it gets fixed soon! In the meantime I've been managing to make some minor changes to the content of tables by highlighting the text I want to edit or remove, then pressing the space bar or retyping the new content - ie trying to avoid using the delete or enter buttons (though I keep hitting them without thinking!)


I do like the new-style tables though. In particular, I have a template with half a dozen columns that I use for my monthly calendar. With the old version, every month's calendar ends up with completely different column widths - so this will be a lot neater!

Hi everyone,


note sure I should post here, but…


Since version, all my previous tables, wich were fluid/"responsive" (I liked it that way), became fixed-size.


Depending of the size of the window, the notes now show a horizontal scrolling bar or not and do or do not show all the content.


Having to scroll both ways is not conveniant.


Plus, I can't really edit these tables. They're "fixed", and that's it : no "100%" width available… I can't, also, undo changes I made on the width to try.


I wish we had the option to maintain this fluidity (for previous et new tables), even in cases, not only for "all the table" width…


Sorry for my english,

I'm having similar related table problems on the most recent update, Evernote v5.9.1.8742. I cannot backspace inside existing tables, or create a new table inside them.


Hoping the tables are fixed ASAP, as I keep over 75% of my overall Evernote data inside tables.

I've found that the fix mentioned above by gazumped (hit enter in the note, Ctrl-Z to undo, click on another note, and then back to the original and editing then works) seems to serve as a permanent solution for an individual table, so the problem isn't as bad as I initially feared - though of course having to do that even once for each table is a bit of an irritation.


All the tables I've experienced the problem on are now back to normal - though I'm sure I'll keep encountering the issue for a long time as I've got masses of tables I don't refer to very often!
