  1. I often share images from other apps to Evernote to save them and conveniently sync them across devices. I'm able to share an image to the new version of Evernote, but if there's also text on the share intent that part is lost. When I share image+text to other apps, such as Gmail or Messages, they handle both the image and the text extras from the share intent. Evernote should, too, creating a new note with the image, plus the text above or below it.
  2. Thanks for the quick response. Since I'm able to paste to-do checkboxes using HTML and the span stlye that I borrowed from an ENML sample... <span style="-en-todo:true;">[]</span> ... there's no urgency on my part to get support for pasting ENML from another Windows application. I was pursuing it more as a matter of general interest, because I've found it valuable to be able to generate formatted text in another application and paste it into my notes, and being able to do so with ENML would open up a full set of possibilities. Since the <en-clipboard> element is e
  3. Yes, I specified in the original post that I'm setting the format to "ENML Format". And this actually works if I inject a "Cookie" value that I picked off the clipboard from a copy action that was initiated in Evernote. It occurred to me that there might be some helpful info in Evernote's "Activity Log" (accessible via the Help menu)... and there is! This is the error I see when I attempt to paste ENML that has no "Cookie" value specified: 15:09:47 [ERROR ] [15544] [14384] Could not paste ENML: validation failed. 15:09:47 [ERROR ] [15544] [14384] Validation failed: no DTD found
  4. That makes sense. Thanks! But... I've experimented with pasting ENML that was identical to ENML placed on the clipboard by Evernote -- except that I left out the "Cookie" attribute. Even simple examples were rejected by Evernote. If validation is the cause of this rejection, is there any way I can find why the ENML is not passing validation? Should I be validating against the DTD?
  5. As a workaround, I was able to paste HTML into Evernote and have it convert brackets into checkboxes, using the same span style I was using in ENML. While I would prefer to find a way to paste proper ENML into Evernote from another Windows application, this gets me what I need right now. Here's what the span style looks like, with an unchecked checkbox: <div><span style="-en-todo:true;">[]</span>Daily To-Do Item</div> I went into a little more detail on Stack Overflow. But I'm still hoping to crack the mystery of the "Cookie" attribute in Evernote's ENML cli
  6. I've written a C# application which places ENML on the Windows clipboard so that to-do items with checkboxes can be pasted into an existing note. However, Evernote refuses to paste the ENML. It appears that Evernote requires a "Cookie" value that it generated on its own. If there's some way around this, I'd love to know. When the Windows clipboard has content copied from within Evernote, the clipboard includes a data object with the format type "ENML Format". For example, if I copy "Chirp Chirp" from a note within Evernote for Windows, I see the following data on the clipboard, associated
  7. Thanks for the link, @jefito! The option to auto-convert pasted [] and [x] strings to checkboxes would certainly be nice, for round-trip sharing with Word and other apps. But, for my purpose, the ENML documentation is super helpful!
  8. It's been about ten months since this recommendation was made, and I'd like to renew the request: I've written a program that auto-generates Evernote content, using logic too complex for an Evernote template to be sufficient, and places that content on the Windows clipboard. I'm then able to paste the content into a note... but the [] text isn't converted into a checkbox. I could theoretically reverse-engineer the data Evernote places on the clipboard when copying-and-pasting checkboxes from one note to another, but it would be much simpler to have the option to apply text-conversion f
  9. @SeanD - I confirmed that the user.dic file at "C:\Users\<username>\Evernote\Dict\user.dic" contains my latest changes to the dictionary.
  10. Thanks @fredhammersmith! I'm trying it out now. I set up SlickRun commands to block and unblock Evernote, rather than using the timer to automatically unblock it. So far, Evernote is snappy again. (The short explanation is that blocking Evernote via a Windows Firewall rule prevents the freezes. When you want to sink, you can unblock Evernote.) UPDATE: Even with Evernote's network access blocked, I'm still seeing significant lag when opening a note, when first starting to edit it, and when Alt-Tabbing back to it to resume editing.
  11. I am continuing to experience unacceptable lag in When I open a note, it sometimes takes 10-15 seconds to load. Notes sometimes go completely black, then come back empty, then eventually load again. When I type, I often experience a delay of 5-10 seconds before any text shows up. This could be a complete coincidence, but I've been experiencing very similar problems in Slack, which is also based on Chromium. The lag and black-screen symptoms in the two applications started at roughly the same time. Could it be that Evernote and Slack suffering from a problem the root of which
  12. @Kimball - Thanks! I had seen that comment in your earlier post, but completely forgot that my own Windows Display settings were also set to 125% magnification for "text, apps, and other items". With your re-emphasizing that point, I went back and checked my settings, and I confirmed that this problem goes away for me, too, when I switch to 100%. I've passed this along to Evernote Support. Obviously, this is not the desired behavior.
  13. I'm having the same problem, and am working directly with Evernote Support to find the root cause. As others have mentioned, you can change your default font size to 9 or 11 in Evernote to avoid this problem. To do this, go to Tools -> Options -> Note and select a font size other than 10. Update: I confirmed that I'm having the same problem Kimball describes in the next comment. I've passed this along to Evernote Support.
  14. Currently, I see no way to disable a global shortcut key. To see the current shortcut key mappings, one navigates to Tools -> Options -> Shortcut Keys. There, next to each item, is an "x", which I would expect to clear out the shortcut key. However, if you clear the value, click OK, and then open Tools -> Options -> Shortcut Keys again, the old shortcut key is back. To me, this seems like a bug. In addition to wanting that feature to work, it would be nice if there were a global option to disable all shortcut keys. When checking this, the application would remember the existin
