  1. The only thing that works well when moving elements is the second case you described: when you select only one element of a list. But if you peek what's inside the clipboard, you will see no list-related html tags (elements like <li>,<ul>,<ol>). It's just copying the text, and it has nothing to do with lists. Lists break when you copy/move multiple elements or element with sublist. Or when you paste web content which happen to contain some list-related html tags. Or when you try to fix indentation for a multi-level list for a saved note: ----->
  2. Jackolicious, any comment on the issue? Do you acknowledge it? Is the Evernote Team working on the issue? I've created support ticket 10 days ago (#956397) and got only an automated response.
  3. So I've got one working short-term solution, I expect some comment regarding not working copy/paste. This is a user forum, so if you are looking for a comment from EN you might want to create a support ticket. Glad it's working for you in Windows in any case. I've created a ticket, thank you.
  4. Windows client issue: Try reordering the list using copy and paste: https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/81509-is-there-any-way-to-reorder-bulleted-or-ordered-list-using-windows-client-without-messing-up-the-list/ Web client issue: Create a simple list: Try reordering the items. Example: move "D" to the place between "A" and "B". To do so, select from "after C" to "after D" and drag/drop or copy/paste the selection to "after A". Result: iOS client issue: Create a simple list of five elements like the one in the web client issue: Try reordering the items. Example: move "C" and "D" between "A" and "B". To do so, select from "before C" to "after D" (selection from "after B" is not possible), cut the selection, make a new line after A, paste. Result: Additional note: The second bullet is not selectable, you can not enter any text there. ---------------------- The issues I mentioned regard simple lists. I used to work with 3-4 level lists in WorkFlowy and OneNote. Trying to do manage such lists in Evernote is not a pleasant experience, to put it mildly. Not to mention pasting web content.
  5. Thank you! Suprisingly for me, your solution works for the Windows client. I was not suspecting that drag/drop behaviour will be different from copy/paste. It seems that drag/drop works resonably, only copy/paste is broken. So I've got one working short-term solution, I expect some comment regarding not working copy/paste. ---------------------- A little off-topic, but I've tried to use the solution using different clients - without success. Drag/drop using web client - I've ended up with: There is no way to use drag/drop on an iPad. Copy/paste breaks the list. Android client doesn't even allow selecting multiple items (or selecting a multi-level list). I guess issues for other clients should go to appropriate forums not to make this another "thread about everything".
  6. After several years bulleted lists are still terribly broken (as well as ordered lists). Evernote Team, I don't know what you mean by "this is our priority", I await some explanation regarding why it is so hard to fix basic note taking feature for your flagship product. Maybe you should really consider that comment?
  7. Is there ANY way to reorder bulleted or ordered lists using Windows client without messing up the list? Below I present a case when lists get broken just after a few edits without any external pasting or formatting. Normally I use long and multi-level lists (3-4 levels are not unusual). However, in Evernote I stopped using lists at all, because bugs make them so unreliable. I've got two requests to you: Short term request: I am looking for any hacks/tricks that would allow me to reorder the list without breaking it. Long term request: make the lists work properly! The issue is known in multiple wariants from at least 2012: https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/31179-long-time-user-1st-time-poster-evernote-bullet-lists-needs-to-be-fixed-now/. It is priority issue for a note editor to have that problem fixed. Case study (Evernote version on Windows) Note: 1. A 2. B 3. C 4. D 5. E Desired effect: Move 'C' and 'D' between 'A' and 'B' Test 1: Action 1 1. Select from 'between 3. and C' to 'after D'. (note: 3. is not selectable, selection would have to go from 'after B', the case is examined in second test) 2. Hit Ctrl+C 3. Place cursor before 'B'. 4. Hit Enter 5. Place cursor after '2.' 6. Hit Ctrl+V Test 1: Effect 1 1. A 2. 1. C 2. D 3. B 4. C 5. D 6. E Test 1: Action 2 "Deindent the list" 1. Select from 'between second 1 and first C' to 'after first D'. 2. Hit Shift + Tab Test 1: Effect 2 Test 2: Action 1 1. Select from 'after B' to 'after D'. 2. Hit Ctrl+C 3. Place cursor before 'B'. 4. Hit Enter 5. Go back to line 2 6. Hit Ctrl+V Test 2: Effect 2 1. A 2. 1. C 2. D 3. B 4. C 5. D 6. E
