  1. Hi, First of all let me say IOS is the only platform Evernote does a (very) good job in handling RTL. My only complaint is this: (After the text is aligned to the right & you input some text): Writing a number followed by a dot at the beginning of a line (say 1.) the number will disappear. Any insights?
  2. Dear developers, Last year you've made a change in your Android app & since then it's very (very!) hard to use it for RTL languages. Arabic alone is the next most spoken language in the world after English (http://www.vistawide.com/languages/top_30_languages.htm) (preceding it are only Chinese, Hindi & Spanish). The support for RTL across all your platforms has been inconsistent & it's a shame as it's possible to achieve. How do I know? from the following: - The IOS version currently works ok - start writing & then long press the screen & click the IOS change orientation symbol (2 opposite horizontal arrows) - The windows version works weird - it's possible to write from right to left but the cursor doesn't follow as you type & actually placing it at the end with the mouse makes typing start at the beginning of the line! Additionally either typing numbers(!) or (god forbid) adding a word in English messes up the entire line & renders the text unintelligible & non-editable. - If a note was written in IOS (aligned to the right first & then add the text, not the opposite or it won't work!) & then opened in the Windows program - magically the Windows program works perfect! This shows you fixing all versions to do RTL is possible & I believe I've just given your programmers an option to check what is it that works & implement it in all versions. Please help hundreds of millions of people use your apps (Adnriod in particular), please, please, please allow us to continue & use Evernote

  4. @Matt W. Does this mean you've given up on this? There is a way to resolve the RTL issue in all versions! How do I know? from the following: - The IOS version works ok - start writing & then long press the screen & click the IOS change orientation symbol (2 opposite horizontal arrows) - The windows version works weird - it's possible to write from right to left but the cursor doesn't follow as you type & actually placing it at the end with the mouse makes typing start at the beginning of the line!

Please help us, please, please, please
  5. Amen @Matt W. we're happy you'r not ignoring us (that would have just made me drop the use of the app completely) but please, this is crazy, I keep using the app & recording all my notes in it in such an uncomfortable way (every time I type in it I'm frustrated but keep believing it'll soon be fixed) - please don't abuse our patience- is there any expected time line for this to finally get fixed?
  6. Hi @Matt W., I appreciate your efforts but this is just to let you know it's the first time I'm not renewing my premium account & I'm sad to say it 's for this reason I've also stopped recommending Evernote to friends - I don't want them to be as frustrated as me with so much data with you already with just trying to figure out a way to transfer it to another service.. Good luck resolving this super critical issue for millions of users, if I've not completely moved to another service I would be sure to renew it once it resolves.. Please keep us posted..
  7. Thanks again @Matt W.! Don't know if this helps but here's more info: Your Windows desktop program always had some confusing issues with Right-to-Left texts - the cursor doesn't follow the text while typing but is instead stationary, remaining at the beginning of the line (which is very confusing for editing) & placing the cursor at the beginning of a line produces the same effect as the new Android update does (it starts writing at the end of the line instead - placing it at the end starts writing at the beginning..) I've come to terms with this & although it could sometimes be really uncomfortable it's somehow manageable. (your Windows App BTW is perfect & doesn't have this problem at all but is just less comfortable with a non touch screen..) Hope this helps & can't wait for the Android app to come back to normal - maybe on the way you might fix the Windows program cursor issue also!
  8. Thank you @Matt W. for the attention, This indeed started after the update to the Android app - I believe it has to do with your new editor, right after you guys posted that there's a new editor the issue started . Writing & editing on the web is fine.. BTW - notes that were written in the past & are accessed now through the app are still ok - they are aligned to the right as they should but just new notes cannot be aligned to right. Editing anything in Hebrew or Arabic is impossibly confusing (clicking at the end of a line will start typing at its beginning & the other way around). I have high hopes with you helping Matt - I use the app all the time & would hate to have to switch service (300 million right-to-left language speakers would probably have to do the same..) A big thank you in advance!!! (p.s. I would be happy to help with any further questions until resolution, I'm also sure it's not a specific issue with me - opened Evernote at a friend's android phone & it's the same..)
  9. Terrible!!! Right-to-left languages support gone - text will not align to the right & even clicking at the end of the line would start typing at its beginning (and clicking at the beginning of a line will start typing at its end..) A death-stroke to some 300 million Arabic/Hebrew/Pharsi speakers using the app!!!
  10. I agree - terrible :((( Any response from Evernote?!!!
  11. Hi, Up till the last update Evernote on my Galaxy S6 Android phone worked perfectly. Ever since the update Hebrew & Arabic does not align to the right hand side of the screen anymore!!!!! This is terrible & renders the application unusable for anyone using a language written from right to left!!!!! I suspect it has to do with your new addition of enabling indentation of text but it overrides the natural (and wise) way that Android behaves when writing Hebrew or Arabic. Furthermore, now clicking the ending of a line to add more text in Hebrew/Arabic actually places the text wrongly at the beginning of the line - i.e. It's all gone crazy!!! I use Evernote to store everything & many times I write not in English - I'm a paying customer & would prefer not to look for an alternative app but this is too crucial & everyone using a right to left language will agree & won't be able to use the app even though Android does a perfect job adjusting up till this new update you did that bypasses it :((((( Please roll back & undo this HUGE(!!!!!) mistake you just did
