    That 'empty space' thing around (apparently all) attachments is an annoyance. I used to be able to get several attachments showing in one screen, now they're spaced so far apart I can get 2-3 max. - Here's a quick example

    Evernote Wizards. Please, give us a dark theme. My eyes are bleeding with how bright your default theme is. (both web & desktop) No suprise, it is mostly white. A great choice for clean design, but ultimately a fail for intensive use. Please, give us a dark theme. Best Regards, Your Paying Customer

    Had a problem with a website that had tables. The tables were not adjustable after they had been clipped to Evernote. Discovered that if you right click anywhere in the table (I had not selected any text). There is an option to "Upgrade Table." Selected that, and my table is now fully adjustable. Thanks for giving me this opportunity to say thank you again!!

    Use the tag search drop down in the search information area after you have typed in notebook and -tag:... The drop down will show less tags as you type and any tags you select will be added to the search.

    Here are the are the options that I would prefer: Simple Paste: retain the formatting from the original clipboard item, if any. If there isn't, then that should probably just default to Paste and Match Style (see below) Paste and Match Style: strip existing formatting from the clipboard item, and paste it in as if it had been typed at the paste location Apparently, currently this will retain header marking, so that you get different font sizes for header text; I'm not sure how I feel about this. If I need to select the pasted material and choose a single font height, that's probably easier than adding them back in if they've been stripped off, so that might lead me to accent retention of header-ness. Paste and Remove Formatting : strip existing formatting from the clipboard item, and paste it in the default format (this may be what people are talking about when they mention pasting 'plain text'. Simple paste is what I expect for Ctrl+V, and I'd guess that most other people do too Paste and Match Style is useful to have pasted material match the text I'm pasting into Paste and Remove Formatting is useful because it makes it easy to start over in the default style, in case that last thing you typed is special, rather needing to type a character, highlight it and set it to default.

    To follow up that 'purging' comment - I have a database (I mentioned) on a second laptop that hasn't been used for a while. It's a 'sync on demand' setup, so although my full database is 17GB and counting, this one was, a couple of hours ago, 842MB (after being used for a while, so with quite a few downloads). I activated the 'purge' option (also a couple of hours ago) - it's now down to 278MB!! I think I'm in love... (That may have been Pete K's parting gift.) It also freezes far less (as in zero times so far) than the other full database version. I may have to swap these two over so my working laptop has the partial.

    The problem with this feature is there are too many inconsistencies with what it actually does and what users expect. To me, it means "paste with no formatting at all, and adopt what is in the note paragraph I am pasting into. Instead we are told: I don't even know what that means. In Office apps, and Google Chrome, there is a "paste as text" feature. That does what it says. No formatting at all is brought in. None. Just raw ASCII, and it adopts the destination format. That should be simple. Strip out EVERYTHING but ASCII and paste it. Is any user really expecting it to do anything different? Until it does that, I will have to continue to paste into Notepad first, then copy and past into Evernote.

    I like @jefito's comments, with perhaps the exception of most times wanting to keep hyperlinks in the text (when they are in a list of references the original site has inserted). The biggest problem for me is the web sites that I post on that have different formatting - larger fonts than are necessary, that carry over to double (or more) spacing of lines or paragraphs (sometimes both!). I know this is not supposed to be a word processor, but when Evernote uses the term "editor" it seems to me that there should be some basic editing functions - line and paragraph spacing included.

    Evernote decided to 'improve' their product and got feedback from their users that this was not a good idea. Not much discussion involved, but feedback is sometimes definitely required to keep them on track!

    I believe the extra space has to do with the new table capabilities. The extra spacing enables display of the add column/row icons when working a table. I agree with you there has to be a better UI for displaying the table options. In addition to the spacing, the drop down formatting options icon in the table cells hides text when you are editing the cell, another PITA. These issues were reported in the beta threads, but no changes were made. Which is interesting since EN has seemed so interested in pretty UI's of late, So they may irritants we are stuck with. But I hope not.

    Welp, this is fun. Now it's working for me. I've fiddled with it off and on for a couple of weeks, but only now, after y'all's input, it works. Um, thanks? (Select in List, normal right-click on "Copy Internal Link" and then CTRL-click to generate the /evernote/ local link. ) Of course, now I could proceed to chant the "User Delusion" response; I SWEAR I didn't change anything! LOL I've been in IT/tech for 25+ years and I still sometimes can't figure out what I was doing wrong -- which is my intellectual/scientific assumption. The rest of me is all "Freakin' Gremlins. How they love to torment me!"

    Ok, everyone needs to stop and regain focus on what this was about. Considering I'm the one who started this discussion, let me recap. I didn't ask for a feature to be added. I asked that the Evernote App on Android work properly. Copying selected text and immediately pasting said text as a different font and size isn't a functionally working app. It's honestly a disaster and something Evernote should be ashamed of because this is basic text formatting. In about 2 months it will have been a year since I started this thread. Even if Evernote is only pushing out updates quarterly, we should have received 3 updates since then. If they haven't fixed it by now, I highly doubt they will. It's because of this and the fact that they limited the free version of the app to two devices that I will be leaving Evernote once my premium subscription expires. If they fix this before then, I'll reconsider. However, this function is something that I use enough that using Evernote has become a hassle more than a tool. @gazumped posted a quote from another thread talking about editing the default font and size of text. This is completely irrelevant! When you copy text in any app and paste it within the same app it should hold the formatting it started with, not revert to a default. I can't think of any text editing program that doesn't work this way. Now if I was going between apps, I could understand. However, I'm not only in the same app, but I'm in the same note. In the end, it comes down to one thing. I'm paying for a service and that service isn't innovating. Evernote has become stagnate and they can't handle simple tasks. It's time to move to Microsoft OneNote or Google Keep. Evernote, please prove me wrong. I've been loyal to you since the early years, but if the product doesn't work, then I need something that does. Apparently a number of us on this thread are in some form of IT and have done some kind of development. Because of this we should all understand the problems that Evernote faces when fixing a bug like this. I'm willing to give them a little more time to redeem themselves, so why don't we all try to remember what it's like to fix something in a program. In my current position my company would give me 24 hours to have this fixed, but not all companies are that insane. Evernote, you're on notice, fix it or I'm gone.

    It's 2017, Evernote. Limiting us to 200MB today in a single note isn't working anymore and will force me back to OneNote. Many .pdf files are larger than 200MB. A new limit of 2GB per note needs to be put into place.

    Is there some reason that you're using a beta for your team? I'd wait until release for this one, as it entails a pretty large set of changes and has exhibited some brittleness (though it seems to be getting more solid).

    I'm afraid that neither of those point to any facts. Evernote has always been a freemium product with all of the challenges that this brings. This is hardly news. I also don't think any serious user is really going to complain about the demise of the premium business sock BS. You reference a TechCrunch article that is more than a year old, again hardly news. Instead I'll point you to a blog post from 2017 from the CEO of the company, so some facts and not general guesses -https://blog.evernote.com/blog/2017/02/13/turning-an-elephant/ The technology and financial online press are focused on clicks and impressions, not always on facts. "Evernote is dying on it's backside" is a much better sounding story than "Evernote is doing kinda OK". Even if it's not true.

    I have to disagree here - there have been significant improvements in the cross platform editor and the reliability of the sync engine in the last year or so. These aren't big bang functionality announcements, but as a reasonably heavy user of the software, these matter far more to me, Moving to Google infrastructure is another significant and impactful change. Shutting down the previous CEO's ego-based international offices and closing the edge applications and platforms are all good business and product changes in my opinion. Focus is very difficult to achieve and the previous management were hopeless at it. Just because users don't understand the value of these changes doesn't make them important to the company and the product. Your comments on the finances seem to be completely contrary to everything I've seen in the last 12 months - I'd be interested in seeing a reputable source, otherwise maybe you'd be better off editing your post.

    If you prior to changing the view (for all notebooks), you check the "Always use for..." in the view drop-down, and then afterwards change the view, it will be kept for that notebook only.

    I think I've found the issue: I've checked on my Safari (and Chrome) that navigator.language returns "en-US", which after the transform turns into "en_US". The problem is that under "_locales" there is only "en" (and other languages) but no "en_US". So as far as a quick fix, you guys can either rename/copy "en" into "en_US". That wouldn't require changing the script itself. Of course a more permanent solution would be to fix the script. Note to the Evernote Web Clip Team: don't ignore this thread. I feel like this is a issue that have been dogging Safari users for a while. Thanks for the help.

    Hi, I have a Evernote notebook with entries named with a specific datestamp as first word (e. g. 2016-09-21) and want to see last entries first so on desktop I set reverse alphabetical order. On desktop there is this option and it works. But on iOS I have to scroll down the whole list because there is no reverse order option?!?!Regards Ernst

    For those who aren't using EN v6.6 yet, you are in for a surprise if you use CTRL+SHIFT+V to Paste and Match Style. In v6.6, there are some bugs in Paste and Match Style, which EN is aware of and aiming to have fixed in v6.7. Here's the catch - in v6.7, they are going to have Paste and Match Style NOT match the style of the EN note when copying titles/headers ( @Jason Miller is an EN employee; this discussion is from the v6.6GA thread). Please let EN know if you are in favor of their plan or if you prefer Paste and Match Style do what the name implies and actually match the style of the EN note you are pasting into.

    So, it appears there are still issues with "Paste and Match Style." The first attached file shows selected text from an Evernote support page - file is "1 .jpg" The second screenshot, "2 .jpg" shows a portion of a note in Evernote - where I want to paste the selected text from the first screenshot - using "Paste and Match Style" (see file "3 .jpg" showing I have chosen Paste and Match Style) - and the result is shown in "4 .jpg" The same applies to pasting links that are formatted in a web page - the formatting and color remain when pasted into a note using Paste and Match Style.

    Hi Gazumped. Sorry for any confusion. It was possible to delete individual notes in the web interface, but it was not possible to select multiple notes and delete them in bulk. The former option would have been laborious, so I instead opened Evernote with the Android app, where it was possible to select and delete up to 20 at a time. Fortunately I had over estimated how many historical snapshot notes were generated -- there were in fact about 40 -- so I only had to do this twice.

    When displaying PDF as an attachment, I can not any longer position it exactly where I want. The problem stems from attachment having an invisible box around it with the empty space. The box only becomes visible if I right-click on the PDF or try to drag it to the place I want it to be displayed at. When I try to cut and paste it, it is temporary displays where I want. However, if I switch to the different note and then go back to the note with the PDF attachment it will move up from the previous spot because of the white space. Below is an example of what I am talking about. This white space eats into the note display space.

    As I recall "paste and match style" replaced "remove formatting" as the title for this action, but still seemed to do the same thing. I agree with @tavor. If I wanted the style from the clip source I could just choose 'paste'. I actually tried (unsuccessfully) today to unscramble a jumbled paste with both 'simplify' and 'remove formatting'. I was aiming for a plain text version of the content if necessary. Simpler is often better - without big titlles! Short term of course you can always paste into a text-only app like Notepad to kill the formatting, but it is an extra step...

    Experiencing an issue with default font size I never noticed in earlier versions. Under Tools > Options > Note, my default note font is Tahoma 10pt. When I create a new note, it defaults to Tahoma 9pt. Also, I could have sworn that prior to 6.6, my older notes were all created using Tahoma 10pt, but when I move the cursor over the text, EN 6.6 informs me these are Tahoma 9pt. But my old notes font size is visibly different from the new notes font size (9pt), even though EN 6.6 indicates they are all 9pt. Here's an example. This note was created prior to updating to v6.6. The font is Tahoma 10pt, but EN v6.6 tells me the font is 9pt. After updating to v6.6, when I add a new line as I did prior to taking the snapshot, the text is in 9pt font. Clearly the font sizes are different, so not only did EN fail to preserve the original font size when hitting Enter to create a new line, it incorrectly reports all the text in the note as Tahoma 9pt.

    On my PC, I can hover the mouse pointer right over the little arrow or triangle that collapses and uncollapses the notebooks list or tags list and get a count to pop up. I don't actually have to click it. But I do have to be very precise about getting the mouse exactly over the arrow, not over anything else in that header. If this is not working for you, I'd suggest exiting Evernote entirely (use the File menu, then Exit; the red X-box only closes the interface). Then restart it. That often cleans up flaky program behavior.

    Sadly, like many other people have mentioned, my issues still haven't been resolved either. I use Evernote here at my office with a team of employees. They all use smallish monitors, and the setup we have in Evernote. The new editor still has giant ass margins and no way to change that. Also, please notice that in the note I have selected, there is extra spacing before and after a table. This note was not modified after the update Before Update: After Update:

    gazumped, I found a solution after reviewing the things you shared. Launched RegEdit. Went to key location: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Evernote\Evernote Found key: ShowNewNoteInANewWindow It was on as indicated by the binary value 1. I set it to zero. I'm a happy camper. I still don't have visible options in the Tools Options dialog but it looks like I can change things as needed with the registry editor. regards, Blake

    Don't know if it helps much but if you have the left panel open and and the tag view (Right Click Tags - Show Tags View), you can drag tags in either direction; from the left panel to the tag view and vice versa. Also, a neat feature found by I forget whom, if you hover over the right caret on Tags you can get your tag count.

    The ability to add/change/delete keyboard shortcuts is built into macOS! Go to System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts > App Shortcuts and Click the Add button on the right.

    I'd really like an option to just add a PDF as a note rather than as an attachment on the note. It's pretty trivial, but when I'm saving something that's just a PDF (like sheet music for example) it's a little inconvenient to have to open the note and then click the attachment. Thanks!
