I'm sorry I took my time replying to you. It being summer (holidays) and bloody hot here (in the Netherlands) should not be an excuse. :-)
Thank you for taking the time to reply to my post.
I've since communicated with Evernote on several subjects, including this one.
And you're right, I should have been more clear on my circumstances and I did end up making a video.
(Since it was on my tablet I wasn't aware at the time of a capturing app. Evernote gave me a tip: AZ Screen Recorder.)
I attached all the exchanged info here:
My tablet uses Android 7.0
The (Evenrnote-)app is version 8.11.
I’ve installed the app (AZ Screen Recorder) and the result-movie you can find here: https://youtu.be/xH7pusu6Uec.
To explain what I did:
1. I select the text to cut-paste.
2. I ‘walk’ to the space where it should be inserted.
3. I ‘click’ and hold with my finger but it won’t select the correct ‘location’ until I add a new line (via Enter) and I delete the checkbox.
Only then I can paste correctly.
Evenote's reply was:
First, you cut the "Checkbox 3" with checkbox included, and trying to paste it below "Checkbox 2". When pasting texts with checkbox after another text with existing checkbox, the clipboard disregards the copied checkbox and pastes only the text. For this, you need to put the cursor on the end of "Checkbox 2" and hit enter. When you paste "Checkbox 3", the checkbox will not be included.
However, if you paste it in a new line, for example, hitting "Enter" twice or thrice after "Checkbox 5", the checkbox will be included once pasted.
The cursor also behaves as expected since checkbox, and texts have different formatting in Android app.
So there you have it. :-)
