    Oke, this is maybe oke; not.

    Some UI tweaks made to the sidebar - which tweaks? I don't see anything except "New Note" button (it looks oke).

    Drag & drop doesn't work for months , it's like hypelink in pictures/photos which doesn''t work for 6 months. 

    "We've also been hard at work on some improvements around drag + drop which we'll be releasing in Beta 3 in the next couple of weeks. As always looking forwards to hearing from the community - please let us know if you spot any issues or have feedback."

    Couple of weeks?' Funny!

    This CEO and Team are worst. I don't wan't to pay 60 EUR for incomplete software that looks like Windows. Looking for alternative/s.

    I am able to attach a URL (hyperlink) to an image and if I click on the image a webpage opens - it sounds like I am missing a detail that is causing my experience to be different than yours with 6.9 Beta 2 (windows 10) - is this for new notes or older notes that already have links and are the notes create in Evernote or are they webclips?

    Two gif of the two problems I encounter with horizontal rules since 6.8:

    • sometimes (I think only when font size is higher than 12) I can't add a rule by typing "---" + Enter or by the hotkey Ctrl+Shift+-;
    • the blinking text cursor of the horizontal rule is practically at the same level as the line below the rule, so when I want to add a line break after a horizontal rule the line break is often above the rule



    Good news - the first issue is fixed, the 2nd issue is a bug with the cursor being "caught" in the span that includes the HR - if you can get out of that span, the enter key will work fine (so if there is more spaces in the note you can hit arrow (key) down and it will break out of the HR)

    Since 6.8 I often can't add a horizontal rule by "---" or Ctrl+Shift+-. I have to click on the horizontal rule icon.

    Also the dictionary doesn't retains the words added. Even when I manually edit the user.dic file.

    Is this still happening for you?  I had to downgrade to the GA release for testing (using I'm running bleeding edge) and the type behind command for HR was working for me - so wondering if I am missing some other detail / step (I am running on Windows 10)

    Hi Jason,

    You correctly listed the steps I took.  Before I replied, I thought I'd see if I could replicate the issue myself.  I could not.  I have to suspect now that maybe I was working too fast and hit "annotate copy" instead of annotate image.  If the problem shows up again, I'll come back to this post and report it.  For now, the problem seems to be resolved.

    Thanks for following up!


    Glad the problem went away for you - the issue with annotating images when they are in tables should be addressed before another release

    I haven't had time to read all of the posts here, so I apologize if this has been covered.  After upgrading to 6.8.7 I have lost a lot of my Rule Lines, and when trying to add new ones they don't appear either.

    I am assuming you mean the horizontal rule - what happens when you try and create a new HR (nothing?) and are you using the toolbar, or the magic shortcut, like if you type ===<space or enter>

    Anyone seeing EN just crash when you aren't using it? This is the 2nd time it has responded with this dialog box since installing this build. I always submit whatever it is that is being submitted.

    Edit: Ugh. And when it came up, it collapsed all of my notebook stacks. Never ever do that. At least it didn't collapse my tag structure.



    Yes and stability work is being done to fix this

    Since the update, every time I insert a logo, JPG file into my notes, (ALT F + F which is attach files) it does not insert it where my cursor is.

    I use this option a lot in my notes and it is frustrating at this time. Not to mention the delay before I can edit the note. It almost freezes for 2 minutes before I see the icon I inserted.

    I don't know how I feel about the new PDF interface, I was happy with how a PDF looked within the note. It felt like it was part of the note and now it kind of feels like a separate entity. Obviously I'll know more as I use it more.

    We have had some fixes with  cursor position in 6.9 beta 1+ not sure on the time frame for the GA of 6.9

    Hi Jason,

    Many thanks to the Evernote team for working hard to fix bugs.  I think I found a new one.  Today I added two screenshots to a table in a note and then opened them to annotate them.  I kept waiting for the sync to show my annotations, but when it didn't, I opened my web Evernote to see what was going on. I have that set to show the newest notes first so I found my annotations.  In NEW notes.  That never happened before. 

    Each annotated screenshot from the table created a new, separate note.  Obviously I do NOT want that to happen.  Here's a screenshot of my notebook showing the situation.  By the way, I put the attached screenshot into a note but NOT in a table and when I annotated it, this time it stayed in the same note, so I suspect the issue is with the table.

    That is painfully annoying, I tried recreating internally using the bleeding edge builds I work with, I did not run into this problem, but something uglier, again with tables - there is a bug filed for that, that should hopefully take of this too.

    To confirm I have the right steps

    • Create a note
    • Create a table 
    • Add an image to each cell (in this case 2)
    • Annotate the images
    • Results is a duplicate note?

    I reported this on 31 July 2017 on 6.12 Beta 2 and it has come back again as a bug on the MAS version (Version 6.13.1 (455786 App Store))

    I have noticed a couple of irritating formating issues - 

    - Typing some auto text like emojis and any TextExpander expansions (with a space afterwards it seems), takes the cursor to the end of the paragraph. Very annoying as it interrupts the flow of note taking. 

    Why are these bugs coming back after being corrected? Is there no process to make sure this doesn't happen? 

    Can you tell me this is being updated in the next release? 


    There is an open bug for this and this feature is included in testing, however it is lower priority than other editor issues

    I'm using thumbnail view, and they all have a black background. Card view and snippet view thumbnails are fine, and thumbnails for notes that don't include any text (just an image or a pdf) are fine as well. This is happening for notes created on the desktop, but also web clips and notes created in the mobile apps on my ipad and android phone. It isn't specific for this version, it's been going on for a couple of weeks at least, but it's still happening in the current version.




    Thanks for the info, sharing with Dev

    It depends on the developer. Many iOS apps are formatted differently from the phone and iPad. Heck, some even tweak the UI for the phabletty "plus" models vs the regular phones.

    Only lazy programmers will do one UI and leave it to the user to use that on everything from a 4" phone screen to a 24" desktop.

    Or programmers given a hard ship date to release something, instead of time to release it right - not everything is the fault of the people building the software - just saying - but this is way off topic

    Weird.  Also bug. (I think).  Just left-clicked on a 900K image expecting to see a slideshow,  and 1) no slideshow.  Also 2) no image - the note body is now blank,  as is the note body of all other notes I look at,  images,  PDFs or whatever.  Task Manager shows 67.9MB memory in use,  no disk or network access.  Evernote seems to be dozing.

    This happened last night while the outage was going on,  and when I restarted Evernote this morning (my local times) the note content was back.  I assumed that was the problem,  but it now seems that 6.9 is a bit flaky with images.  Will restart now without many worries,  but that's disconcerting!!

    (PS while fixing this,  how about going back to left-click = open in default application?  Please?)

    Edit:  restarted and everything is back. ;)

    Yes we have 2 bugs filed for this and being worked on by Dev for the next beta update

    No. Microsoft is doing this with OneNote and there is nothing worse than a mobile phone UI on a desktop, or a desktop UI on a mobile phone.

    This might be worse in the future (I don't mean questionable thing with EN's UI) Apple announced they are planning to allow apps that run on the iOS and macOS - if the UI changes to match the client this won't be a problem, but if not - users will see more of this in general :-(  - And I remember MS doing the Metro thing (Win 8) on the desktop - was my least favorite Windows OS - - I only used that version when I had too - but I digress

    Been trying to reproduce this, it happens to any note when I drop and drag an image into it, I then rotate the image and it disappears. If I add the image using the "add attachment" option then it doesn't disappear. I can retrieve a lost image from note history.

    I am glad you can at least recover the image.  I haven't encountered hits the new builds I am testing, so at least it doesn't look like a problem in 6.9 (and what should be beta 2 code) - though that doesn't help in the short term.

    Bug: When left-clicking on image in the note it will be selected and cursor changes to zoom icon. The second left-click on a image with cursor as a  zoom icon will result in the content of the note completely disappearing. The content is still reflected in  a snippet view but not in the  note window / editor. If I open the offending note in its own window, the content of the note is restored. However, if I repeat above steps in the note own window I get the same results. Changing between  different notes only displays note title, not the notes content. Restarting Evernote  will restore the notes contents. Windows 10 Pro 64-bit, Evernote ver. Prelease (CE Build ce-1.36.3494).

    The 2nd left-click for me takes me into gallery view, does that happen for you?
