  1. THIS PROBLEM IS STILL HAPPENING AS OF Evernote v6.20.8626 (308626). Doesn't matter whether you Paste (Ctrl-V) or Paste and Match Style (Ctrl-Shift-V) - empty lines are inexplicably getting stripped out before pasting. Repro Video: Every program that I've tested from has this issue (Visual Studio, Linqpad, even Microsoft Wordpad). If I were to take a guess, it would seem like Evernote is struggling to properly parse RTF clipboard data.
  2. Ah, I hadn't realized they were referring to the UI itself. I can't speak for the majority of Evernote Dark-mode proponents (wouldn't mind seeing this in a poll though), but for myself, I'd be fine with the standard looking interface as it is as long as the notes themselves had dark mode since that's where the majority of my attention is directed anyway. Most of the people I know who use dark mode is because its less strain on the eyes, or in some cases because myodesopsia makes white backgrounds more distracting. If Evernote were making the case that it wouldn't be thematically consistent having dark notes with standard looking GUI then why provide the option for dark mode on just the notebook-tree hierarchy in the first place...
  3. I don't understand why some people in this thread appear fixated on Win32 v. UWP and seem to be missing the obvious clue that Dark mode has already been partially implemented... It already exists in some fashion in *PRESENTATION MODE* for a note (click the Moon icon). And from my tests, it works pretty darn well which is to be expected considering it's probably doing some really basic CSS styling since notes are already HTML-based anyway. And heck, if they're concerned that some notes won't show up correctly in some globally applied Dark Mode, then they could just take a hint from the Firefox Dark Reader extension and allow you to turn it on/off at the Note level and have the system persist the specific note preferences. And honestly, most Windows users concerned with dark mode are most likely already configuring apps at the individual level via themes for dark mode - Pycharm, Visual Studio, Notepad++, Sublime, etc. Who cares if one app's dark mode differs thematically from another app's dark mode. I'm not decorating my house for jebus sake.
  4. @jefito Thanks, yeah, that's what I thought too, but the tables are already in the new format (I suppose they autoconverted them, so there's no option to convert) - but I'm positive that these tables were previously the old ones because these particular notes have a last modified date of 2014. For now I'm using the "Match Note Width" as I encounter the problems.
  5. @CalS Thanks, I hadn't realized 6.14 was out, I'll give it a shot!
  6. Basically if you search your notes using F6, click on one of the found notes, then highlight some text from the note and start to hit Ctrl-C to copy it, the Ctrl button will immediately cause the highlighted section to be deselected. When you're trying to get stuff done these kind of things just serve to slow you down. I made a quick 30 second video demonstrating the issue - SUPER ANNOYING EVERNOTE , and definitely something that didn't exist in 6.5.x which is what I used before the forced update. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zntei88_tR8
  7. Since the forced update to the latest version of XXXX, this is what a large number of my tables look like now: From what I can tell, these are much older tables - eg, they were made prior to v6 of Evernote. The more recent tables don't seem to have this issue. Annoyingly, the problem manifests itself on the Windows client as well as Web Evernote. It seems like it just can't display the old tables properly anymore. What am I supposed to do here? Recreate the tables or just resize the width and hope it "sticks"?
  8. I guess I either didn't get the official email, or it got autolabeled into a non-priority box in my email because the way that this issue suddenly presented itself was OBNOXIOUS. I just all of a sudden couldn't sync - looking in the log showed no obvious issues or anything. Restarting Evernote didn't help either. Given that Evernote is clearly capable of issuing notifications on startup (like when a new update is available), they should have at least put it there. I had to come to the official website to find this out. Also thanks for the forced update! I'm going to have to monitor my total notes and total note summed size daily to make sure nothing gets corrupted since I'd been previously holding back from 6.4.2 as it was the most stable version. This + reliability + lack of dark mode is putting me precariously close to finally jumping ship, which is a shame since I'd been happily using Premium for years.
  9. @gazumped Yeah - I back up all notes basically weekly in the native ENEX format. At the time I made this decision (around 6.8x) I figured the chances of losing data or having it corrupted was actually higher if I ran latest than if I stayed on an older release.
  10. Since I got heavily burned the later released starting from around 6.7x onward - I made the calculated decision to revert back to what was (at least for me) the most stable version of Evernote for Windows, (303788) Public. And life was once again good - it's responsive and has all the features that I want. The concern I have going forward is backwards compatibility against the Evernote servers. I want to make sure that Evernote is not going to introduce some changes at the server level that will break syncing with this older version or even worse corrupt notes. Is this a possibility? What is Evernote's stance on running previous versions? I would hope at the very least that it would warn me with a Popup message at some point that I have to upgrade if that unfortunately becomes a necessity.
  11. For me I had to downgrade to version: Public . I feel like this was the last stable version before formatting issues, table issues, etc were introduced. Since using this version everything's been rock solid. EDIT: Just noticed you're on a Mac, whereas I'm on Windows 7, so YMMV.
  12. Same here, ever since paste as text was broken, I've had to roll back to version Public, in my experience this was the latest most stable version for me - I absolutely refuse to upgrade until I see a post about a release where all the forum replies aren't about bugs. I'm terrified of losing data or having it corrupted. With as many notes as I have (3k worth), I might not even notice it until it was too late. As it is, I write down the number of notes total and periodically make sure it hasn't gone down. Though if the data inside of a note gets corrupted, I'm SOL. Wish we had a way to also see the total "character count" of all notes as well. For everyone who has been with Evernote for years: PLEASE NO NEW FEATURES, JUST FIX THE BUGS.
  13. This isn't bad but it would be a lot more convenient if we could select one or more notebook/notebook stacks and say "Exclude from Searches by Default", that way quick searches / etc wouldn't keep pulling them in. Having to type "-tag:archive1 -tag:archive2", etc is kind of a pain. For those of us that keep a notebook for each client that we work with, this would be an extremely useful feature, since once we've concluded our business with that client we need to keep the notebook but exclude it from future searches.
  14. Thanks @Dave-in-Decatur Just pulled it down and installed, as Duke Nukem would say, "ahhhh.... much better".
  15. I made the mistake of updating to the latest build (305825) on my computer at work. With the huge side margins, completely broken cut/paste, and half working code blocks I am completely fed up and there doesn't seem to be a clear timeline on when these bugs are going to get fixed. What's absolutely insane to me is that *ALL OF THEM* appear to have come down the pipe in a single update for me -- I'm not even talking about beta here, I'm talking about a regular notified update from the app itself. Fortunately at home I'm still using (303788). I'm going to downgrade my work computer, so does anyone know what the latest version is before all of these breaking changes were introduced? Is it (303788) or is there something more recent?
