  1. I got it to work by using shift-cmd-v. Look in the edit menu for "Paste and Match Style" . I never would have thought of it because it CHANGES the style from White on Black to Black on White. I shall have to change the meaning of the word "Match" in the dictionary. It's been driving me crazy--and that is a pretty long drive!
  2. I'm not certain if this helps. I've found that I have to use shift-cmd-v for pasting. Otherwise I may get black on black. The irony is that shift-cmd-v says it will KEEP the formatting. I think it has something to do with dark mode.

  5. I've had items appear black on black, when copying from dark mode. Haven't been able to fix that until . I started using shift-cmd-v.
  6. On the mac, I have to use shift-command-v instead of command-v. The option doesn't seem to be there on ios.
  7. Try pasting with shift-command-v.
  8. I have finally figured the problem out. When pasting from Dark Mode on the Mac, instead of using Command-V, use Shift-Command-V to match the style. That fixes things. The workarounds above never worked for me. I'm surprised that I didn't find it in any of the help. Now that Catalina has everything in dark mode..... Thanks everyone.
  9. @dtlow......the problem is not finding in evernote but the ability to be consistent in how/where I save information. For some reason spotlight cannot find items I put on my grocery shopping list. I don't understand.....it's right on the refrigerator in plain view.
  10. There go my plans for total world domination!
  11. Thanks Pink and Low. Since I'm familiar with Wunderlist, I've got my stuff in there. It's taken a burden off that I have most written down. I did select dates for many of the items, but know they are almost placeholders. I understand what you mean by leaving them open. The fact that the list is in there is a big help. One of my problems is how and where I take notes--say a draft of a letter. I may do it in Evernote, or Mail, or Textedit, sometimes even a sticky note. Then I have trouble finding it. I've been trying to put more in Evernote. I've been scanning or downloading manuals, receipts, instructions, etc. and have made good headway into reducing the volume of paper here. Since I'm only in Chap 2 of GTD, I feel pretty good.
  12. 1) . I changed my default as you suggested. Now if I copy white on black, it stays that way. At least I can read it. Is this now the way of the world in dark mode? There could be 3 colors: text, highlight and paper (background) if I exclude borders and shading. As always, I first select the text. In other apps and webpages, the standard is to make selections under format, Here, in format, we only get to chose the system of color naming. Once selected, I select the small a with underline, then choose one of the color naming systems and select the color. I have one more click to close the box here. (Remember standards?) As I said the background is set in preferences. I select text again, then click on the highlighter pen, after which I click on the dot to clod ig. In Evernote, the closest I select the a, which opens a color selection and alternate ways. Once I select the color, I must hit the red dot to close it. ' For the background, I will try the next icon, the highlighting tool. Sometimes the color options show up. Other times nothing. And when I do successfully change it, it only changes the backroom shadowing individual characters. Note the following. I'm getting closer, though I still can't change the background, and I';m still copying white on black text.
  13. I am now reading GTD. Just reading it makes me understand that I am worrying about the wrong I'm still at teh beginning but I think I'm on the right path no matter what tools I choose.
  14. When I change to use white, other notes are white on white. If I can manually change the text color and the background color I can get around this. All I've been able to do is copy it all, throw it into text edit, change the text and background color there and paste it back into evernote. Evernote is converting color and I can't seem to figure out how to fix it manually
  15. I've changed color of text and background with dot codes (wordstar), lotus 123 print codes, and multiple versions of Mac OS and Windoze. When I select the black on black, the text becomes a faint color that I technically can read. Everywhere else, I select what I need, click on an icon for the text change it to black and another to change the background white. I can train a deaf hamster to do that while I am asleep[. Standards....they're what's for breakfast. I have to go into a colors menu here and I only get choices of bar charts color wheels rgb etc, OK, I accept the fact that Evernote wants me to learn their paradigm for changing the color of text....why not? I'm, thankful it's not hardware or the power cord would have 5 plugs. But even so, I can't find the sequence and icons to do this. I'm willing to learn a new way and spend time memorizing the way, as long as it doesn't take more than say 15 minutes to change the colors. Just let me know if I need to purchase a special input device to do this and how much I need to budget for it. I don't mind when every company renames things, and moves them about. Hide and Seek is my favorite game. When I open one of the black on black files, you can see that it is slightly readable. But how to make it black on white? I did click the heels of my ruby slippers....
