    Evernote for Windows 6.16 beta 2

    Why has this moved from 'Product Feedback/Feature Requests' where the beta discussions usually reside?

    Evernote for Windows Update Required

    I think they slip out unannounced when they know they can't in all honesty trumpet any new features, in the full knowledge that the problems reported in the previous beta still remain.

    Please make the dictionary work

    The custom dictionary is broken for me in 6.15 beta too, but I know it used to work. I'll test with 6.14 tomorrow. To reproduce: add a new nonsense word to the dictionary. Exit Evernote, restart. It will mark the word just added as being misspelled. I have a user.dic file in C:\Users\user\Evernote\Dict but it doesn't get updated. Just another feature that gets mysteriously broken like so many others.

    Code Block Formatting

    I'd love to see some control over the code block style. I use DejaVu Sans Mono and have a particular code block style in EN that I've adopted for years in the absence of any useful style controls. I've got used to wading through the font dialogue box multiple times to do this. The code block feature would be very useful to me if only it had some definition controls. It's completely useless to me as it is unfortunately.

    Evernote for Windows 6.14 Beta 1

    I'm on Windows 10, went from 6.13 GA to this beta. My DPI settings are 100% (even though I have a 4k monitor), I've never changed that. I've not touched the executable's compatibility settings either. I have rebooted recently while EN was running, I applied some MS patches very recently and would have let Windows deal with shutting applications down. Not sure whether that was before or after 6.14b1 was installed though.

    I lost my toolbar settings too. Even stranger, there's a single row of pixels visible of selectable text just beneath the toolbar. Dragging it out into a text editor and it turns out to be some metadata about a completely unrelated note to the one I'm currently looking at, one that's not even in the same notebook. In this case the text is as so: reated: 2018-07-23 10:32 Updated: 2018-07-23 10:44 Tags: Problems, RFS, Samba/CIFS It doesn't matter if I change notebooks or notes, the same hidden text is there.

    May I suggest your development team experiments with new programming models in its own lab rather than on us? The focus issue has been driving me nuts for months now, it's symptomatic of EN's general disregard for basic testing and quality control and is tipping me over the edge to jump ship. I'm sure I'm not the only one.

    Lots of sync problems with 6.13.14. Seems to be server side this time, but could just be the client mucking the negotiation up: 14:21:50 [INFO ] [15048] [1656] 0% Loaded updateCount: 38589 14:21:50 [ERROR ] [15048] [1656] 0% HTTP request failed, code: 503, error: Service Unavailable 14:21:54 [INFO ] [15048] [12332] Client synchronization finished, status: failed 14:21:54 [ERROR ] [15048] [12332] * error: Sync failed due to unexpected problem server side The client grinds to a halt for minutes at a time as a result. Currently checking out Joplin...

    Multi window edit of a note

    You can edit in one window and keep a view in the main one (or vice versa), but while editing in one, the other will get its view reset every few seconds back to the top. So you're fine if your note happens to fit in a window with no scrolling, buggered otherwise.

    Evernote for Windows 6.13 Beta 3

    Yes, exactly this has been happening to me for the last couple of versions. I find that eventually (and it may be a minute or two) the correct note content appears. That's on my work PC which has Win7. My home system has Win10 and is a much more powerful system and I don't see this lag at all there.

    You have a QA dept now? (Sorry, couldn't resist)

    A bit more digging and the picker turns out to be a Windows 10 feature, not part of EN. But it only works with a US keyboard layout (I use GB). You can flip quickly with Alt+space, then the emoji picker works... for other applications but still not in EN! So Microsoft:0, Evernote:0.

    Ooh yes, so there is. Doesn't actually work though: in 6.13 clicking on an emoji does nothing except highlight it, it's not inserted into the note.

    Evernote for Windows 6.12 Beta 2

    I'm experiencing this too, sometimes I can't even reliably select text from a note and it takes two or three attempts (the selection highlight just disappears). Then it's hit and miss whether the selection made it to the clipboard at all. I see this in 6.11 as well as the current beta.

    I see a similar problem, but without the delay when going back to the note body. Almost immediately after the cursor gets to the body, it jumps back to the title, whether I've started typing ot not.
