  1. oh weird... I've never noticed that hover behavior, why not just have it enabled all the time!-P And somehow, I've always associated clicking on the note area/arrow area with MOVE not navigate to notebook. Which is how clicking in that area when you are already in the notebook behaves. Thank you for the tip, but I think this UX could be a lot more consistent and easier to discover. I don't see the need for this to be a "hover to discover" functionality, it seems very basic to the workflow and you'd think it would be surfaced prominently.
  2. I often find myself searching for a note I know exists in order to place a new note in the same notebook (which I am not quite sure of which notebook I filed it under). I'd think that if I select a note from the search results, then I would have an easy way of then navigating to that note's notebook or adding a new note in the same notebook. For example, when I select a note from the search results then its notebook would be (possibly temporarily) added to the drop down list of "new note in" notebooks, but it is not. Also, a quick way to navigate to that note's notebook. If I double click the search result, the note opens in a new window but the default notebook does not change. Why wouldn't it change to that note's notebook or at the very least, due to the navigation to the note, adding its notebook to the "new note in" drop down list... nope. Am I missing something?
  3. This happening to me in Version 6.12.3 (455520 Direct) on OSX 10.11.6. It only started happening with latest evernote update. If the note is inside the main application pane, then switching to another note and back will make the spinner go away. But if the note is opened in its own separate window, then there is no way to get rid of the spinner/behavior that I know of. Please do not say "switch to the web platform". That is ridiculous unless you are saying that Evernote is deprecating the native app?
  4. I agree. I can't believe it is too much to ask for a "verbatim"/"quote" style formatting entry. I often keep bullet point list of "things" and then want to copy and paste a snippet of text under a bullet point as a sub bullet point. But Evernote completely misses the point, so to speak, and wants to format the pasted text as multiple bullet items etc. Desired: 1 2 a block of text that is meant as a single sub-item for number 2. 3 4 What you get 1 2 sub item line 1 sub item line 2 sub item line 3 sub item line 4 sub item line 5 sub item line 6 sub item line 7 sub item line 8 sub item line 9 sub item line 10 sub item line 11 sub item line 12 sub item line 13 3 4 Note that it also went from a sub-item back to the main line item in the pasting. No difference when using CTRL-V vs SHIFT-CTRL-V This sucks and I agree, one of the main reasons for me to look for an Evernote replacement.
  5. I'm familiar with conflicting changes, and I try to take care to sync before editing. Usually EN is good when this is happening but I just came back to my computer to find that in my pre-trip "Todo's" note, it was note where I left it off... Actually what happened was, I clicked on my Trip notebook, clicked on my Todo's, and started adding, then realized that the list was not up to date where I left off. I KNEW I had made a lot of changes compared to the version I was editing. So I searched for some key words, (a todo list is curt and can have a lot of hits for a long time EN user!-P) and eventually hit on the copy with my changes. In this case I found a search term that was in the version I wanted but not in the current one, so all I saw in the search results was the same named note which makes it really confusing. So I had to go back and see that there were two different notes with the same name. I could see that the "Updated" date/time of the version with the changes I wanted had a reasonable date (12:20AM). What it appears that happened is at some point I ended up editing the "Conflicting Changes (2015-05-04 05:56:12 +0000) version of the note... That is not very user friendly. It seems to indicate a conflict around 10:56PM if my time conversion is correct to PST. but I am pretty sure I was only changing the note on the laptop and not my phone at that time... I could be wrong BUT how would I even know?! What if my change had been smaller, then I may not have even known/found out till it was too late. Like I said, I usually don't SEEM to have a problem in the conflicting changes workflow, but now this current situation makes me wonder if I've ever ended up in this situation before and just didn't realize it!-P I think there should be a big warning if you are editing a "Conflicting" version of a note. Like another posted said, there should be a much better tool for seeing the changes that were conflicting (base version that the two share, changes on the two devices, a three-way visual difference in one form or another).

  6. This happened to me on iPhone 5, iOS 7.1.1 this morning. Couldn't get it unstuck since when launched the app opened to an image with the useless "Done" button. Luckily(?), there was an app update for Evernote ( and installing that got it unstuck from opening that image on startup with the useless "Done" button.
  7. I mentioned above, that I had the problem in 10.8.5 but updated to 10.9 and issue is still there as demonstrated in this video: http://screencast.com/t/e32VjWvj23LM
  8. Also, wrt versions, Evernote says it is up-to-date @5.5.1(402628 Direct), I was on OSX 10.8.5, but happened to update to Mavericks yesterday OSX 10.9, and the issue still occurs as reported. It would/might be nice if you allowed download of previous versions, especially when releasing such a basic annoying bug. FYI this was reported as bug: Ticket# 361991 - Preferences/Simplify formatting is broken‏ Which surprisingly was marked as Solved on Feb 21.
  9. I provided a lengthy description above. But to your comments. No, it does not have to be multi-line. Anything from 1 character to multi-line paste exhibits this issue (any pasting). And yes, the basic reproduction is: Start a bullet list. Create a new bullet. With the cursor at the new bullet, paste anything from one letter, to multi-line text), press the "Enter" key. Expected results: a new bullet item appears at the same level as the previous one where you started before the paste. Actual results: http://screencast.com/t/Rs3zUs52E The cursor appears below the pasted content without a new bullet item The workaround behavior: http://screencast.com/t/IScQ1rwseu Get an older build and see how it behaves.
  10. So I checked my Evernote preferences to ensure that "Simplify formatting of pasted content" was still enabled, thinking maybe it became disabled on updating. It was checked. Then I tried pasting something, and sure enough, bullet point busted as described above. I selected the pasted text, chose "Format/Simplify Formatting" from the menu, then tried to hit return and viola no problem. So it would seem to be that Preferences/"Simplify formatting of pasted content" is broken, since this used to work for me without having to re-format/simplify formatting after pasting.
  11. Recently bullet points stopped working for me in my usual workflow. I often copy and paste text and links from other sources into bullet lists. So before I could start a bullet list, paste a link, hit enter, the next bullet point appears. Now, whenever I paste in a bullet point and hit enter, then I just get a blank space and bulleting is then completely broken. even without pasting, I can't create a new bullet item unless previous ones exist. I've tried various things to attempt to fix up the list but it remains broken. I saw the Windows thread on bullet points which indicates this feature has a history of problems. The only workaround I have is to create a template list with a bunch of entries as in * x * x * x * x In this case I can replace an "x" by pasting the link and then use the next "x". But this is a PITA when for instance I want an new bullet item between two I've already pasted into as in: * x * x * I already pasted here * And here * x * x Now I'm screwed again. Unless I use the existing x's to create new one's and re-copy and paste those items leaving an entry between for the new item I want to paste. This is not acceptable workflow. Is this a known issue? Is there any known work around/fix for this issue?
