  1. Glad to know it's fixed. This is really something mysterious. I hope they'll get it figured out soon.
  2. @CalS, note that this is the poster's first post, and all it does is repeat something from the 3rd post in the thread (from over a year ago). Don't know what the purpose is, but it looks fishy. I've reported it. EDIT: And now the admins have taken the post down (in case anyone comes here later and wonders whether Cal and I have lost our marbles).
  3. Hi, and welcome to the forums! It's often useful to search for existing discussions before posting about a problem. Please see the long-running thread below on this issue, which contains one or two workarounds, and evidence that it seems to work for some people but not for others. (I experience the same thing you do.)
  4. Hi, and welcome to the forums. Yes, this issue has been reported by a number of people, specifically in the Firefox browser, and Evernote is working on a fix for it, which is expected soon. See this thread: It may be helpful to search the forums to see if a problem is already under discussion before posting it.
  5. @mnl1337 has posted a video to illustrate a different problem; but his video shows that, in German, "OK Google. Mache ein Notiz" brings up a note-making dialog that includes an Evernote elephant icon. I just tried it again, and I do not get this. So I wonder if different versions of Android, or even different regional variations of Android, work differently in this respect.
  6. Thank you for the video. I see the problem. The problem for me is that when I say "OK Google. Make a note", it makes a note in Google's own rudimentary note-taking system. I don't have the Evernote elephant icon that you have in the video. Perhaps it works differently in German versions of Android than in English ones?? At any rate, I hope someone else will be able to pop in here and suggest a solution.
  7. FWIW, there is much more sophisticated text formatting available in the Web beta editor (https://www.evernote.com/client/web, then be sure there's a black Beta button at bottom right). Formatting created there then displays properly in the Android app, and you can even edit within formatted zones and the formatting remains intact. Not a solution, for sure; but at least a sign of progress, since what's being done in the Web beta is intended to be migrated to all platforms as I understand it.
  8. As of today, February 5, 2020, I find that this problem is fixed. Thanks developers!
  9. Glad this is working for you! Be aware that this will affect only the note currently being edited. To set a default font and size you need to do as @jefito indicated earlier: Tools menu, then Options > Note > Note Font.
  10. This is the problem under discussion in this thread: The notes are absolutely Evernote notes, not from another app. There is something screwy in the Android Evernote app which they've been looking into since last summer. The solution that someone suggested in that thread that worked for me is clearing both cache and data for the app. This does require a complete new download of note data, and recreating the settings. But it gets rid of the locking of notes.
  11. The issue is under discussion in the following thread, where it is stated that it occurs only with certain Note List views and is fixed in v. 6.23:
  12. Hi, and welcome to the forums. Here is a general article on importing from other note services: https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/208314308. But it is very general, and I don't know if it will be helpful specifically with Apple Notes.
  13. But, as @HenningS indicated, the name of the note includes .PDF at the end, which is a bit annoying. Unfortunately, I don't think there is any way to avoid this.
  14. BUT that doesn't necessarily guarantee an identical appearance on all platforms! I think that's one of the issues that are on the front burner for Evernote as they try to unify (as much as possible) the editor across platforms and devices. BTW, @Ron94188, it sounds like you may be using Evernote in the Web client rather than the Windows desktop program? If so, the forum for that is: https://discussion.evernote.com/forum/235-web-client/.
  15. Hi, and welcome to the forums. I'd suggest posting here: https://discussion.evernote.com/forum/279-productivity/. There seem to be several template-related threads there.
  16. Hi, and welcome to the forums. A little clarification on using them. This is a 5-year-old thread (with a 2-year-old post as the most recent response) in the Windows desktop program forum. There's a forum for the Web client here: https://discussion.evernote.com/forum/235-web-client/. Search around there and see if the issue has already been reported, and if not you can post your report there. Hope you get it resolved!
  17. Hi, and welcome to the forums. I believe you need to make your report in the following forum: https://discussion.evernote.com/forum/216-evernote-for-ios/. The one here is for the Windows desktop app.
  18. Hi, and welcome to the forums. This sounds like the issue under discussion in the following thread: I t would be good to go there and add your comments.
  19. Hi, and welcome to the forums. Thanks for this report. I would invite you also to join this thread: A number of people there have been discussing how it is even possible to get Google Assistant ("OK Google") to create a note in Evernote. I'm glad to know that you are usually able to do it! I generally cannot.
  20. As @gazumped said, Evernote is not currently set up to do internal links within notes, though you're not the first one to request them. Searching, which is certainly more keyboard-centric, is the only way. If searching for the day names (Sunday-Saturday) wouldn't work, perhaps begin each section with a unique identifier, such as ###1, ###2, etc., which could be quickly searched for. As for returning to the top, Ctrl+Home should accomplish that. Best of luck!
  21. Ding-ding-ding! I've also experienced the exact same thing, (maybe) sometimes when opening a note from a widget, definitely sometimes when opening a note due to a reminder synced through Cronofy to my Google calendar. I find that when I go back to the note (which I can do from the calendar), it then displays properly. In your situation you'd have to actually remember the name of the note and go find it. I haven't found anything to make it predictable. Generally it happens at home on my strong WiFi connection, and the notes are not particularly large. Next time it happens, though, I'll try to see whether there's anything definable about the circumstances.
  22. Actually, I've had some quite good experiences using the Web beta editor (in stark contrast to the Windows desktop program!) to modify formatting of material from the Web. See my post here: I just tested this, with the page to which you gave the link. I also found the "Medium header" styling for the section headings. But I did not see any "Mixed" font areas; it was all already Sans Serif (both headers and normal text). That's not much help for you, I realize. The only thing I can think of is that it may depend on the browser in which the Web page was clipped, or in which the Evernote Web editor is used. I'm using Opera.
  23. Items from the Web often have difficult HTML formatting that can cause problems like this. I'd recommend trying out the Web beta (https://www.evernote.com/client/web, sign in if necessary, then make sure it says Beta in a black button at bottom right), which often has better tools for reformatting HTML-based issues.
  24. @neurongrower, sorry for piling on, but attempts like these to read Evernote's motivations out of their practices, and of course conclude that they are desperate and doomed, get posted in these forums on a regular basis, and have for years. I hope OneNote works well for you. Please check back in 6 months or a year and find out if Evernote has really gone belly up. If not ... well, lesson learned on the prognostication front.
  25. @Narnk, you really need to address this concern to Microsoft. It's their design decision, not Evernote's. Out of curiosity, do you have any Windows programs that don't have those items in that location in the title bar?
