  1. So if I'm getting this right, my friendly neighborhood supermarket wants me to live in a transparent house so they can check the contents of my fridge and, based on that, give me this super awesome deal that they're not ready to say what yet. I don't even have to do anything because apparently they already opted me in by default since I shopped there. How convenient! I'm feeling a little uncomfortable though. But hey, I can opt out, right? Right! But only from the super advanced robot that they're making. Their super friendly human employees can still check in on my now opted-out, non-transparent house and check my fridge personally. This might sound like a gross over simplification but I can tell you that this is how most people are reading it. There's an irrational fear in being known or unraveled in humans and no amount of saying "We only do it with your permission" will change their minds after you presented the idea that you will be (actively or otherwise) looking into them. The fact that you're opting everyone in automatically doesn't help. I don't have much sensitive, or damning, or personal stuff in my account but imagine the ones that do. People won't care if your employees are unfeeling robots that won't care about the content they see. People simply don't want other people to see what's in their head. And this update doesn't exactly help to strengthen the trust people have put on you.
  2. I appreciate you helping out, Jefito! I've tried everything you mentioned before but also tried it a second time a while ago. Turned clear type on and off, disabled display scaling in Evernote's property etc. Just to check, I also installed an older version of Evernote (5.8.1) and voila, texts are looking as expected. Then upgraded it to the latest after checking my notes out and it reverted back to the thin-ish text that it was before. So I guess if anything it might be proof that it's a problem in the newer EN versions and not my machine (which is a relief, I've been going at it cleaning and uninstalling recent stuff for hours to see if anything changes). Here's a comparison: 5.8.1 6.4.2 Again, I really appreciate you throwing out ideas. Sooner or later I guess I'll just have to suck it up and hope it gets accidentally fixed in future versions.
  3. Hah! I realized I agree with you regarding their website. It really doesn't tell you what it's about and if one didn't know where it came from initially one wouldn't know at all. I don't know about sliced bread but it's really nice that it would be a shame if it needed to be disabled just to get Evernote working right again. Tried it for the sake of it though but nada. Editor part is still blurry as hell.
  4. So I noticed this happening two updates ago and I've read all the topics regarding blurry text (that I can find). As you can see in the screenshot below, everything in Evernote looks nice and crisp aside from the editor. Whatever font I try to use, no matter how big or small, they all seem too thin/blurred. I've uninstalled and installed it back twice now. If it's any help, I'm using Mactype and have tried exclding Evernote from it but no joy. It only gets worse even so I included it back. This doesn't happen to any other installed program in my machine that I know of. Tried making a new note too just incase, thinking it might be something to do with web clipping but as you can see below, it also happens there. Any advice on this? I'm on Windows 7 x64 using the latest Evernote build.
  5. Wow thanks for this. Still have to check it out but looks like this would do well. Or at least make it easier than working with the element inspector. Thanks again!
  6. Will there ever be a feature that would let us fully format a note? Like an HTML editor alongside the WYSIWYG. I've been trying to get into Evernote for months but always end up backing away because formatting is a pain. I've been using the web version of Evernote to format articles saved using the web clipper. Browser's Element Inspector works surprisingly well for trying to get those elements to line up right and removing whitespaces because you have to admit, almost all (if not all) articles saved using the web clipper ends up having awful whitespaces and misaligned texts. And even that is still a pain. Forget the fact that we have to deal with the Element Inspector. Lots of times the web version would refresh and would save multiple copies of the same article I'm formatting. So yeah, I was wondering if this would ever be a thing?
