  1. Hmm, that's evidently not what I'm experiencing. I do take care to copy them to another folder, but I don't see why that would keep them in AutoUpdate. Perhaps there is something in the manner of doing an update? A "download" vs. just "install" option?
  2. I've got 6 from v. 5.8.x, and 8 from v. 6.x.x (only 8 because I didn't upgrade between 6.7.6 and 6.15.3). I don't think I did anything special to make that happen.
  3. Agreed, this hardware acceleration bug should never have gotten out the door. There surely should have been enough quality control testing to catch something that egregious. But OTOH, however bad it may seem to us, we don't know that there is no testing or QC going on. Also, there are forum posts when betas are released, and users who wish to beta test have an opportunity to provide feedback at that point (before general release). I held on at v. 6.7.6 for a very long time, precisely because subsequent updates were often so bad. But I started updating again with v. 6.15, by which time most of the worst bugs had been fixed and the program was usable again (for me, at least). When Evernote is updated, the installation file is saved in C:\Users\{username}\Evernote\AutoUpdate. Older files are not deleted (I have one going back to v. I also copy them to another location for safekeeping, so that it's possible to roll back if a particular upgrade breaks something badly.
  4. Hi, @Nitja, and welcome to the forums! Unfortunately, I don't think there's anything you can do to prevent it from happening, until Evernote improves the font handling and formatting of the Android app. You can probably get rid of the ugliness by using Simplify formatting (on the 3-dots menu at the top right of the note), but of course that will affect the appearance of the note on the PC.
  5. Ah, Ctrl+Shift! I don't believe that was mentioned before. Yes, when I do that (which I'm not used to doing, so I hadn't tried before) I do see the [+] icon, and I agree, that is confusing to say the least.
  6. @rohithreddy95, are you able to get that hyperlink to go to a specific page of a PDF in other programs? (Do you need to have a colon after file, so file:/// ?) I've never seen it before, so I'm curious.
  7. Ah, I see, thanks for the link. Looks very useful, if it would work! If no one here is able to advise, since you're a Premium subscriber you might want to contact Evernote support directly: https://help.evernote.com/hc/requests/new. There's also a sometimes-functional Chat link on the Evernote Help page online.
  8. Hi, @CloudWalker, and welcome to the forums! I see the same post in the General Discussions forum; duplicate postings are frowned upon. Having said that, I wish I could offer some actual help, but I'm not a WearOS user. But let me ask this: how are you identifying "to do items from Evernote"? Is there a specific note (or notes) that have checkbox lists you're using for to-dos? Or what is the "To Dos" you're clicking on? Sorry for being a bit dense on this.
  9. Hi, @CloudWalker, and welcome to the forums! I see the same post in the Android forum, and I've posted a response there. But duplicate postings are frowned upon. I've posted a response.
  10. Is it possible that Evernote is syncing when you pause typing, and that is somehow affecting the display until you type again? Check the settings in Tools > Options > Synchronization (hover over each option for a popup explanation).
  11. Hi @yvonna2004, and welcome to the forums! This sounds like it could be a classic case of accidentally creating two accounts (it's surprisingly easy to do). Check your login credentials--username/email as well as password. Might there be an account under a different email address that has the other notes? The other thing to do would be to go to a computer (it won't work on an Android phone) and log in to Evernote in a Web browser (https://www.evernote.com/client/web), again being careful of the credentials. If the notes are accessible there, then they're still in existence. Hope this is some help.
  12. Posts in this forum are product feedback or feature requests, and users who come here can vote on the requests using the arrows at the top of the page. Evernote staff almost never respond directly to these requests, unless it's something really urgent. You might want to search the forum for "font"--there have been quite a few similar requests, and it might be most effective to add your vote to an existing one.
  13. How are you accessing Evernote? Through the Windows Evernote program, or through the Web browser interface? Also, what version of Windows and/or browser are you using? I just tested in both the Windows program and the Web interface, and selecting and dragging text produced a sort of rectangular box during dragging, not a [+] symbol, so I'm curious about the context in which the latter appears. I will say that for me, dragging text to move it rather than copying it would be the expected behavior in most of the software I use. But I could be behind the times.
  14. It might be worth a shot, since it is creating a note, to try the "Clip again" option in the 3-dots menu at top right of the note. I haven't done much clipping lately, so I can't comment on functionality.
