Apply: Simplified Article post processing after article already saved as Note to fix Rendering issues


xbliss

Idea

I love saving both ways, but sometimes the non-simplified article is saved in a way that it does not RENDER correctly. 

Can Evernote please provide a post processing function that allows us to:

- Temporarily view as Simplified - a stylesheet of sorts
- Permanently convert to Simplified & Overwrite 
OR 
- Make a Simplified Copy of the original (With same Data/ Time stamp in Evernote)

It would be as simple as pulling the Simplifier Stylesheet from "Note Clipping" area of the product and putting it inside as well, as an ACTION/ FUNCTION.

Hi.  It may be a simple fix,  but getting it into Evernote's plans for the next year or two might be more difficult.  They tend to set their own priorities.  Meantime have you tried

  • paste & match style
  • simplify formatting
  • remove formatting
  • and clipping 'selection' from any available printable version of a web page?

It's also possible to clip a 'bookmark' version of the page to secure the link,  then add to that note by copying and pasting from the page.

Sample page: Tried first 3 and it just wasnt as good - as would've been with Simplified Formatting. 

Actually it's not a major fault, but a repeating fault with certain behavior. Try this page out with Normal Article and see the "Text overlap/ overlay" thing. This has been happening off late on a lot of Clipped pages. I think this is a Bug, that could be a blanket fix on lot of sites/ pages.

Will try some of this stuff out.

xbliss you might be interested in the discussion of this issue here: 

I have found that simply copying and pasting into a blank note works every time. It also automatically populates the URL field of the note so there is still a clickable link to the original article.
