  1. @jefitoI think that's unfair. What I'm sure is meant is this: Please sell working software; do not spend almost a decade figuring out fonts and then roll out something that is broken. That's not an unreasonable suggestion. I appreciate that you love Evernote. I wish I had as good of an experience. A really strident defense of Evernote's mistakes just makes them look worse to unhappy customers, though, because we are trying to come together to share input, ideas, what works, and what doesn't, so that we can have the best possible experience. We're invested -- we're here. Coming in strong t
  2. I just updated my post to show the issue in various fonts. My post should now show 3 screenshots.
  3. @Austin GSure, here are three screenshots. I'm using Evernote Desktop for Windows, version (306387). The picture with the word "Journal" circled is viewing a note on my screen. The font is Tahoma, 10 point. The word Journal is followed by a comma which is also italicized. As you can see, the letter L is clipped. The picture with the word "phrase" circled is from a note that was printed to PDF and is identical to printing to paper on a standard HP printer. It is also Tahoma, 10 point font, and again here the comma after the word is italicized. After the comma is a space and
  4. @JohnLongney I'm using the oh-so-exotic Tahoma font on a Windows computer. Which font did you find works correctly and consistently? And would you happen to know if there's an easy way to change fonts throughout all notes?
  5. @Austin G I am still experiencing issues with italics after picking up the non-beta release today for the Windows Desktop version. I've left my thoughts and findings at the end of this thread if you are interested in taking a look.
  6. @JohnLongney, I installed 6.8 (Windows Desktop non-beta version) today. I don't know how long it's been available, but it's available now. I didn't find that it fixed the italics issue entirely; I left a comment at the end of this thread with my findings and thoughts if you'd like to take a look before installing.
  7. It's still not really fixed (based on the non-beta download I got today). If there is punctuation after italic words, the punctuation marks get lost because they aren't kerned correctly. If a note is open in the Desktop version and you click File > Print Preview, you get the Save As window (to save as .pdf instead of previewing). Interestingly, some italics look correct online while others are still clipped. I mostly wanted italics for school notes -- I was keeping all my notes and their citations in Evernote. Every citation uses italics for book or journal names, so not having italics
  8. @gazumped you're right. When I saw your response to @Samyboy I conflated it with a similar set of responses on another thread (also about italics, and also with comments that people will leave over this bug) and mistakenly thought you were the same person as in the other thread. But that person was @jefito who scolded us that we should not talk like that (about importing and exporting to and from other note-taking applications) on these boards.
  9. @gazumped I ask because you sometimes come across as rather strident in your defense of this product. If you were a representative of the company, I was going to recommend that you let people engage in discourse without insisting that they are wrong at every turn. Using this thread as an example, I think it's completely reasonable for people to want to print from a note-taking software, use italics and other standard formatting features, etc., and I think it's completely reasonable for people to indicate their discouragement in seeing a commercial product not responding (by fix or even comment
  10. @FuzzyDoug I heard back from the Evernote team with an update. They said italics don't work because the Evernote system uses an older version of Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF). The problem is actually in that framework, and so they are changing over to a newer version of the framework (CEF3). It's taking them a long time to change over to the newer version, so they don't have an estimated timeframe for when we'll see it working, but when they finish moving to CEF3 we'll have italics. After getting that response from Evernote, I googled for issues about italics in CEF3. I found one pers
  11. @FuzzyDoug, in my last contact with the Evernote support team (on Nov. 2016, which was a follow-up on my bug report of Feb. 2016), they said that a fix was coming soon. I'm using the most-recent Windows desktop version, and it is still broken for me as of today. I sent another follow-up email, though, and I'll share any info I get from them. I would offer a word of caution: Don't get too invested in Evernote if italics are important to you. They are important to me, and I've got 4500 notes now, which makes any change really painful. Learn from my mistake! Obviously I remain very hopeful
  12. @WeCanLearnAnything Did you know they recently fixed this in the desktop version, at least? It's not in the menu path nor the buttons, put your cursor in a cell (don't highlight a row or column) and then right-click. (See screenshot at the end of this post.) It was about that time, though, that I noticed another table bug, which is that if you delete the text out of one cell and continue to hold down the Delete key, it will start to delete text from the cell to the right. Keeps you on your toes! For a lot of tables, I just use an HTML editor and copy/paste it into the note. I've
  13. @JeffreyC @WeCanLearnAnything I received a response from the Evernote team. The short answer is that it will be fixed in an unspecified future release. It was a rather long email, but here's the pertinent part: I notice that in the desktop version, if you click Help > About, the scrolling area of the About window lists a copyright of Chromium as 2006-2010. So either they haven't updated their About window since then, or they haven't upgraded Chromium since 2010. If the latter, I imagine it's a Herculean task because so much would have changed over the last 6 years.
  14. @JeffreyC @WeCanLearnAnything I submitted a follow-up ticket to the Evernote team, asking for an update on my ticket from February of this year. I'll post back with details as they come in. (My original ticket was #142939. My follow-up was assigned #1908742.)
