  1. To be fair this - https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/209005597-Create-a-checklist - does show it auto turning into a checklist so not a bug....they did this *intentionally* 🙃.... But it's just wrong in my opinion. I still don't see the need to cross things out when you've already ticked the box and you can cross things out manually if you want. But to say they are keeping Checkboxes for people who don't like checklists....but then automatically change them back to checklists after I've intentionally gone to the hassle of creating a checkbox makes no sense. Please let us have a setting to choose whether we want checklists to cross out automatically or not so I can turn it off. And then keep checkboxes for when you want to use them at the end of a line etc - but don't auto-change them to a checklist.
  2. Agree! Ticking the box when an item is complete is enough for me - I don't see the need to strike the text through too. I'd like the option to choose to use Checkboxes only if possible - maybe change the tickbox button in the toolbar to one with a drop down where you choose which one you want - and then remember that - or just have a global setting. We shouldn't have to resort to workarounds of square brackets, with leading spaces - that's absurd. But there is still a bug here. If I do choose to add a Checkbox as I'd prefer to use those - then when I hit enter, it changes it back to a checklist. Why - when I've specifically pressed a button to get a Checkbox, would you think that I'd like it auto-changing back to a checklist? Ideally I'd like it to act like a bulleted list - ie. it creates a new line with a new checkbox - but I want it to stay as checkboxes - so the text doesn't get struck through.
  3. How is this still not fixed Evernote? I don't like the 'new' Checklists - ticking the box when an item is complete is enough for me - I don't see the need to strike the text through too. Ok not everyone will agree - but I'd like the option to choose to use Checkboxes only if possible - maybe change the tickbox button in the toolbar to one with a drop down where you choose which one you want - and then remember that - or just have a global setting. But there is still a bug here. If I do choose to add a Checkbox as I'd prefer to use those - then when I hit enter, it changes it back to a checklist.

  4. New version released for Windows - v10.4 - No mention of any of the issues mentioned in this thread being looked at. Spellcheck doesn't work and the windows don't even have window names....but hey - new features you didn't need! (sigh..)
  5. Here's my list of things I've noticed so far (Windows - v10.3.7): Note names do not appear in note windows or Windows task bar. Search does not change cursor position - so when press Esc to cancel search - cursor should be on found text, but is still in original position so if you press a cursor key, you jump back to your original text position. You have to click on the search text to move the cursor there. Check boxes have changed - so you can't add the same checkbox as ones in existing notes - but they are still there in your existing notes. I used to use multiple checkboxes on the same line - but can't do that now (unless I copy/paste it from an old note). Only one checkbox per line - and the line gets crossed out when you tick it. Why? I've ticked the box - I don't need you to cross the line out for me too Spellcheck - can't add to personal dictionary / not using previous custom dictionary where already added words Control + M for indent only works when cursor at start of line. Worked at any position in line before Control + Shift + Space to clear formatting doesn't work any more but listed as not available in new version now Control + Space for simplify formatting should be supported - but doesn't work Did anyone test this before it was released? Was there not a list of changes/functions that would no longer work published? Please get this back to at least the same functionality with the previous version!
  6. Yes I know about that thanks. But I'm having to type that every single time I do a search to get Evernote to show me the note I want as the regular search doesn't prioritise the note title - so the actual note I want (with the text in the title) is always way down in the search results. I want Evernote to show me the notes with the search term in the title first (or give me the option to choose to do that if some people for some reason don't want it to) rather than having to type "intitle:" before I do any search.
  7. Yes please! Can we have 'Sort by relevance' on the Windows client please? I have all my notes with a sensible title - so it's really frustrating when I search for something I know is in the title, but am shown lots of notes which happen to have that text in the note body first. If I've gone to the trouble of putting something in the title, I'd expect that to be shown first as it's most likely to be the note I'm looking for (or at least to have the option to choose to do that). For example it makes no sense to me to not show me the note which I have specifically titled "bike" when I search for "bike" - but to have it way down the list somewhere below lots of other notes which happen to have "bike" in the note body somewhere. This works fine in the web client where 'Relevance' seems to be the default and shows me the notes I want first most of the time. Also in Android it shows me the notes with the text in the title (or notebook or tag) first. Just Windows which doesn't have the 'Relevance' option. Please can you add search by Relevance to the Windows client? All clients should be mostly consistent surely? Everyone please comment here if you agree so Evernote can see we want this to be added.
  8. I totally agree with this. Personally I would like Evernote to show the notes with the search terms in the title first - or or least have an option to enable that for people who want it. For example it makes no sense to me to not show me the note which I have specifically titled "bike" when I search for "bike" - but to have it way down the list somewhere below lots of other notes which happen to have "bike" in the note body somewhere. I have loads of options to sort the results by lots of different things - including title - but that still does not prioritise the notes with the actual search term I've asked for in the title. I know about "intitle:" to only search in titles - but I think Evernote should prioritise these by default (or at least give us an option to choose to do that). Currently I'm having to type "intitle:"for every single search that I do as that's the only way I can get Evernote to find the note I'm looking for....the note that I've specifically gone to the trouble of giving a sensible title so I can find it... Also I've just noticed...I was using the Windows client - but I've just tried this with the web client and that works differently - that _does_ show notes with the search term in the title first. I'd like the Windows client to do the same. The Android client also works as it shows notes/tags/notebooks with the search term when you are typing (before you hit enter) - which is fine too. All clients should have consistency - and I would prefer to make it easier to find notes from the text in the title - so I'd like the Windows client updating to match the web/Android client - or at least give us an option to enable that. Please comment here if you agree so Evernote will see people want this to change.
  9. Agree. I use indenting far more frequently than strikethrough. Please put indent controls on the main button bar so it's one click. Don't mind if it's to the right so you have to scroll (it's not as important as Bold etc). Would make sense to be just to the right of the bullet list buttons to me.
  10. I seem to have found a workaround for this which works most of the time. If you tap on the text first - ie. to place the cursor, then the keyboard pops up. If you then press and hold to start selecting text, it seems to stay in the right place. If you press and hold while the keyboard isn't up - it jumps around to some other part of the text. Any updates...or even a response/comment Evernote?
  11. Not sure if this is related - or just similar symptom - but I get the opposite issue. My notes created/edited in the web-editor seem to default to Gotham, 14 - which is fine. But when I then edit the note on iOS Evernote app - if I add some text - it looks the same in the app - but then appears in a different, smaller font when I view the note back in the web client. Have to use the 'remove formatting' button all the time in the web-app - which puts the font back to the same as the rest of the note. Very annoying.
  12. Just to add another comment to this thread for 2018! Please give us the option to disable this "feature". When I click on a link - I just want to go to that link...not another Evernote page saying "did you mean to click on that link?"... ie. just like how the rest of the Internet works... you don't get Chrome asking you if you meant to click on something...you just go there... It's called a hyperlink.... Please remove this - or at least give us an option to disable it!
  13. Yes - that's my point. That normally works - ie. if you close Chrome and re-open it - all of the tabs re-appear as they were before - so each note must have it's own URL/identifier. It's only when Evernote logs you out that it fails to go back to the right note after you log in again.
  14. Hi - thanks for the reply. Not sure I agree though. The URL for each tab - with a different note open in each - is notably different for each. For example - they all start with https://www.evernote.com/Home.action#n= - but then have a different number/letter string after that - so I'd guess that is a note reference. Either that or it's in some sort of cookie. As I said - if I close Chrome with several Evernote tabs open - with my session saved - and then re-open it - they all come back up with the same notes as before. Or if I select a tab I've closed from Chrome's history - that comes back up again ok too. It's only when it's asking me to log in again that it doesn't go back to the same note as I was on before. If that's some sort of accidental Chrome feature that's letting that work normally - then I think that's advantageous feature - to be able to have multiple tabs open - or be able to go back to a previous note from your history - or even bookmark specific notes in your browser. Yep - don't mind where you move this to - wherever i the most appropriate for Evernote to see it - or other people to comment on too. And yes - it is in need of some TLC. Am surprised that the web-client is so poor at some things and seems largely ignored by Evernote. It's my main method of access for Evernote - along with the iOS app - and sure lots of other people's too!
  15. Anybody else having this problem? Can anyone else replicate it - or is it just me?
  16. Evernote? Anybody looking at this? Reported in Feb 2016 - and still the same! Can someone look at this please? Is this the same for everyone on iOS? Anyone else getting this - please vote it up / comment so we can see if we can attract Evernote's attention to get this fixed!
  17. Hi, "You have been logged out of Evernote"....sigh. Ok - I get the security reason for logging you out every so often - although 30 days seems a little quick to me - but I can deal with that - I'll log back in ok fair enough...my password's saved in Chrome anyway. BUT - what really infuriates me is that once you've logged back in - do you go back to the note you were editing before? No...you go back to a default view of all of your notes. Why? I use Chrome and generally have lots of tabs open - with lots of different Evernote notes open when I'm working on multiple things. It's my 'in progress' stuff - I keep all the tabs open on the things I'm working on. I tell Chrome to re-open with all the tabs that I had open when I closed it - so I close Chrome when I shut my laptop down, and re-open Chrome when I turn it back on again - and there's all my work and notes again as they were. Fine.... except when Evernote decides I need to log in again - and then I just have 10 'you have logged out of evernote' tabs. I log into each one - and they all just go back to the list of notes. Great. Can Evernote be updated to maintain the current note when you've logged out and logged back in again please? The URL must have the note name/ID in it - as you can re-open a tab in a browser and it normally ends up back to the same note - so why does the 'logout / login' process not keep that part of the URL and put you back where you were? Anyone else find this infuriating? I'm using Chrome (Version 61.0.3163.79 (Official Build) (32-bit)) on Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 on a Lenovo laptop - and mainly access Evernote through web - but also on the iPhone app.
  18. Evernote is great...but it's driving me mad with silly little issues that should just not be happening. In the web-editor - Copy and paste - even within a note - keeps losing the font of the text. I'm using Chrome to access to web editor. I open a note. Most of my text seems to be in Gotham font, size 14. I don't know why... that seems to be the default. Can't change it anyway. I copy that Gotham 14 text - seems to only happen when I've got multiple lines - ie. including a carriage return. Move the cursor somewhere else. Paste it. Evernote turns that into: Some Gotham 14 text Some text in a different font - which says "Font, tT" in the menu bar at the top...ie. it doesn't really have a font....but it's not Gotham 14. Looks like it might be Verdana - but it's not the same size as any of the ones you can select yourself...slightly bigger than Gotham 14 Some more Gotham 14 text I don't know why it's changing the font, and why it's just some of it. Sounds like it's something to do with the carriage return/newline / multi-line text. So every single time I copy and paste - which is quite a bit - I have to go and put the formatting back....really annoying! I would quite happily change all my notes to whatever that odd font is if it's going to keep changing text to that font - but you can't as it doesn't have a name! Is anyone else getting the same? Seems to have started a month or two ago. Screenshot hopefully showing the issue. Repeatable - happens everytime. I hope Evernote starts fixing some of these basic text formatting issues soon otherwise it's going to drive me away...we shouldn't be having problems with basic text handling..
  19. I agree - this is really annoying for me too. It never actually helps. It only ever gets in the way - eg. if I'm trying to select part of the text that is the link - or even just moving my mouse briefly over the link on the way to click on the line below for example - I end up clicking on the link in the popup which suddenly appears under where I'm about to click. Made even worse by the fact that Evernote can lose your updates or your place as when you click 'back' on the (also annoying "Are you sure you want to leave evernote" screen) - it doesn't always go back to the note you were editing before. I'd rather they just appeared as normal hyperlinks...what's wrong with normal HTML? Or not at all...they are more often than not links that I didn't really want turning into hyperlinks anyway!
  20. Agreed too! Evernote is terrible in selecting text - especially in large notes. Recently I've had a new problem where I hold down on some text to start selecting it - and it randomly jumps up about 3 pages and selects some other text instead! Maddening! I have to move around the note trying to find somewhere where it will select properly - and then drag the selection points to the bit I actually want to select. This is going to drive me away from Evernote - such basic text editing should just work! This particular problem only started a couple of weeks ago I think so may be a recent update issue, or could be just my large notes I guess. I have large notes with indented text - and seems to be when I try to select any of the text that is indented. iPhone 5s - latest iOS and Evernote versions. No problem with other iOS apps like OneNote....
