  1. Here's what bugs me on this forum: people making assumptions about other people's activities and motivations, and giving them orders. To wit: People are cutting and pasting comments. "As if you're in charge of stopping version 10.4." "and you get joy from doing it if you could." "Stop telling people...." Sorry, but it just galls me that someone who's been on the forum for just over a year and has 14 posts imagines they know all about someone who's been here for 10 years and has over 17,000 posts. I really try to avoid making statements about what someone else is doing and thinking (hence I've had to severely edit this post!). But I guess I shouldn't tell folks who are so certain how others ought to act how to act, since it just puts me in the same leaky boat. Sigh. Earth people--what gets into them?

    Forum search broken?

    I just tried a couple of searches and they succeeded. Maybe it's been fixed now.

    ANSWERED Evernote Android Typing Completely Glitchy??

    Well, I don't think you really know how limited or widespread it is either, eh? As I said, I consider myself fortunate not to be experiencing it, and I do feel sympathy for those who are stuck with it. Of course I'm not an Evernote employee--if I were it would say so under my avatar. I come here mainly to point those who have just found the thread, and are posting that they also have the problem, toward the suggestions that have been made earlier in the thread regarding possible workarounds, such as using a different keyboard. I don't blame people for not doing that before they post, but because I've been in and out of the thread for awhile, I try to help by pointing out posts in it that I'm aware of. I don't know whether this will be enough to justify my presence here to you, which you seem to think I need to do. I also don't see how I'm doing anything to prevent you from getting the necessary attention. But fine: I will accept your censorious proscription, and exile myself from the thread. I hope it helps. Only one last question: since the reports here are not getting the attention you would like, and I see you have a Premium subscription, have you raised a support ticket with Evernote?

    Why I Just Tolerate Evernote

    I just want to ask whether some of these issues are device/OS-related. I'm on Android, not iPhone, and I have no latency issues (though I know some Android users have reported such issues), nor do I have the kinds of formatting issues mentioned here. Formatted lists work well, and indent/outdent are in fact right there, if I leave the formatting menu open. The one thing I dislike most is that tapping "Simplify formatting" eliminates indents--annoying, but not a deal-breaker. As for features overall, many users do need templates, dark mode (e.g., for visual disabilities), work chat, and the rest. For many these are basic usability options. The thing about Evernote is that it has such broad capabilities that people use it in wildly differing ways, which means that what seems pointless to one will seem essential to another. This is why I wish sometimes we could ratchet back the feature-bloat gripes a bit, since one person's bloat is another person's perfect expansion. (I will not rant about emojis, I will not rant about emojis....)

    I'm using the same version as @ab1kenobee, and not seeing any problem with links opening in Opera. Could it be a Chrome problem? I'd suggest completely closing Evernote (File > Exit; the red X box just closes the interface) and restarting, or even rebooting the computer. Weird glitches like this sometimes get fixed by cleaning the program out of memory and starting over.

    Printing all folder notes, each on separate pages

    Thanks, Ed, I understand now. So what you really need is for each note to be considered a separate "document," with printing starting over on each one. I don't think Evernote is set up for that level of sophistication in printing. A PDF solution, such as the current brainstorm you mention, may be the only way to do it.

    ANSWERED Evernote Android Typing Completely Glitchy??

    I have no problem at all typing notes on my Android, and neither do most users, from what I can see. There is a problem, but it only crops up in a limited number of situations, which many or most of us are fortunate enough not to be in. If you think only "the powers that be" are infatuated with dark mode, please just search on the forums for it. People have been requesting/demanding/screaming for it for ages. It's human nature (I know it's my nature) to assume that the problem I'm having is the only or the most significant problem; and then all those other fools insist that they have real needs too.

    Deletion of extra space before table, sticking?

    Let's see, would this count as heresy or just blasphemy in the contemporary business/marketing/political world? Remember, any content however flawed can succeed as long as the presentation is right. I live in the U.S. We have a president....

    Printing all folder notes, each on separate pages

    I think this can be done (somewhat to my surprise, I have to say), though I'm not quite clear on what the difference is between "each note on the next page" and "on a new paper sheet." Use the setting you found in Tools > Options > Printing (and choose any other options you want there, e.g., including the title of the note and/or notebook). Next, in the Note List panel in the center, select all the notes in the notebook (not "folder"): click the first note, then do Ctrl+A; or click them in the order in which you want them to print. This will produce a view in the Note Panel on the right showing the number of notes selected. Then do File > Print Preview (or Ctrl+Shift+P). This will create a temporary PDF document with the printout of the notes formatted as specified in Options > Printing, and open it in your default PDF viewer. Do the final massaging of the print formatting (multiple pages on a sheet, double-sided printing, etc.) in the PDF viewer. You can achieve the same result with File > Print to PDF in Evernote, which will let you save the file on disk and then open it in your PDF viewer. Hope that's some help.

    Does Evernote scan for viruses?

    That I would not know. It's the kind of technical question that probably needs an Evernote staffer to chime in on, and while they do read the forums I don't know when/if one of them would be able to reply on this.

    windows How to change line spacing

    But why?
  12. Hi, and welcome to the forums! You're correct, that is the current functioning. You need to click on an actual note from the results list and look through it for highlighted search results. Also, searches can return results from text in images and attachments, so that a note might appear in the results list as having a hit, but the hit might actually be in an attachment.

    Does Evernote scan for viruses?

    Hi, and welcome to the forums! As far as I know, Evernote does not do any malware scanning. It does scan images for text and then index the text so you can search it (though it doesn't actually create text separate from the image), but I believe that's all. So if that's an issue, always scan before uploading. Of course, that's just my limited awareness as a user. I can see that Evernote would not particularly like to get any malware onto their servers, so if someone does know of such scanning, hopefully they will chime in!

    windows How to change line spacing

    I'm not quite understanding the first paragraph here: "hitting return is rendered as a new paragraph straight away, instead of just a new line." I may be misunderstanding you, because what you describe seems to me to be utterly standard among contemporary word processors and text editors. I learned to hit Return to create a new line on a typewriter in about 1963. Return = "carriage return," which mechanically sent the carriage flying to the right, thus returning it to the starting point of a new line near the left edge of the paper. When I was still teaching and grading papers, I could always tell the students who'd learned to type in the pre-computer era, as I did, because every typed line had a line break / newline at the end of it. But computers introduced automatic word/line wrap, so that new lines were automatically created at the end of each current line, and Enter was only needed and intended to create a new paragraph. So did I read that right: you want Evernote to create only a new line rather than a paragraph when you hit Enter? What am I missing?

    Image Disappears after Annotating

    Let us know if the update fixed it. Also, you might look at other threads in the forums that are discussing this same problem.
