  1. What platform are you using (Web interface, Android, iOS, etc.)?
  2. Nic, I've quoted from your original post as well. I also experienced this issue at one time, but I haven't seen it for quite awhile. I just tested again, and copying and pasting text within the same note pastes it in its original font and size (which shows up as Tahoma 10 in the Windows program). I haven't upgraded to v. 8.9 yet (because of the search issue), so I'm wondering which version you're using.
  3. Next time you're photographing a document, check the little icon in the top right of the screen. If it looks like mountains/landscape, tap it to get it to change to a "document" icon. That puts the Evernote camera function into document mode, which (if you have a good contrasting background) can be quite good at cropping out everything but the document itself. Then, as @gazumped says, save as a document. At any rate, that's my experience.
  4. Well, the OP was using side list view, and I thought a way of seeing reminders in it might serve the purpose for those who prefer that view.
  5. Well, as I said, I know that people do this. I just don't know why. Bryant says he finds his do-it-all-in-Evernote method simpler than switching among programs with different interfaces and structures. I can understand that, but I don't experience it myself. For me, saying "I wrote a novel entirely in Evernote" is like saying "I can juggle 6 eggs, a chainsaw, and an unabridged dictionary all at once"--it's a neat trick, but an awful lot of work to pull off. For instance, when I look at Bryant's first step I instantly get queasy: Step 1. Notes and notebooks For a novel-length project, set up a notebook exclusively for that novel. Each chapter goes into a separate note. Along with the actual chapters of the draft, I like to include a few additional notes: Snippets: This note is where I record all the random bits of dialogue and description that pop into my head during the day, even if I don’t know how I’ll eventually use them. (Psst: If you’re doing NaNoWriMo, include snippets as part of your word count!) Unresolved questions: I start each day by reading the previous day’s writing and note any loose threads I find. This step helps me write a tighter ending and saves a lot of time once I’m ready to edit the story. Deleted scenes: Sometimes I can’t stop myself from editing while drafting. If I feel compelled to cut a scene, I like to keep it handy, just in case. "Each chapter goes into a separate note." But scrolling or even searching through a chapter-length note (especially on a mobile device) sounds like an unappealing chore to me. Again, in my understanding Evernote was designed for notes. As for deleted scenes--one note with all the deleted scenes from an entire novel? Again, it sounds unwieldy to me. But the snippets and unresolved questions notes sound just like what Evernote is made for. That I understand. So I would agree with you that Evernote does itself a disservice by hosting blogs that suggest maximalized, tour-de-force uses that most people would find difficult to manage. I guess that's just how software is marketed (as everything has always been marketed): one program to gather thoughts, create drafts, organize everything, cure warts, and help you stop eating ice cream at midnight! If you haven't already, I'd suggest taking a look at Scrivener. They're nearing the final stage of a complete update of their Windows version, but I find the current version great for organizing and reorganizing material I've gathered from Evernote (a lot of copying and pasting can get involved in this), before doing the final work in a word processor.
  6. But, while the reminder list is not present in the top list or side list views, the columns Reminder and Reminder Time can be included in either of those views, and it is possible to sort on that column so as to bring all reminders into view.
  7. Look around a bit on the forums (just below your post on this one, in fact), and you can see that in fact you're not the only one. E.g.: and:
  8. A number of people have reported this issue in the Android forum:
  9. One clarifying point: This is (as you've perhaps seen by now, actually) primarily a user-to-user forum, not a way of contacting Evernote directly. So suggestions made here are not likely to be followed up by Evernote. Then a clarifying question: are you actually writing a book in Evernote and then trying to send the Evernote content to a publisher? If so, that's really not what Evernote was designed for. People do it, I know, but it leads to problems like this. Evernote is great for gathering and organizing information, thoughts, and (to some extent) drafts, and having the material readily available on multiple platforms. But it's just not meant to be a manuscript production tool. It may be necessary to gather material in Evernote and then transfer it to Scrivener, or even to a word processor, in order to produce material that publishers can work with.
  10. I haven't seen this, so I don't know for sure, but is it something that just started happening, or has it always been like that? Also, can you switch to a different keyboard and see if that makes any difference?
  11. Including pictures in a note created on a mobile app and then viewing them on another platform should work, so a couple of questions. Which mobile app, and which desktop platform? Do the images show up in the Web interface (https://www.evernote.com/client/web)? If you're taking the photos in the Android app, there's a known issue with taking them in landscape mode specifically and not having them show up.
  12. I haven't seen this, but it sounds like a connectivity problem between your computer and Evernote, particularly if the iOS devices were not on the same network as the desktop. Another way to check would be to use the Web interface in a browser, which is independent of the Windows desktop client: https://www.evernote.com/client/web.
  13. There is a timeout feature. I'm not sure how long it is exactly, but (unless you told Evernote to keep you logged in for 30 days when you signed in!) after a few hours of inactivity it should automatically log off on that computer.
