  1. Since Evernote for iOS is crashing in iOS 13 beta (not a complaint; just a fact), tonight I attempted to access the Evernote web client from my iPad (in mobile Safari)—and what I saw there rendered me nearly speechless. After creating a new note and typing a title, I kept tapping in the note-body area, but the keyboard wouldn't appear. Eventually (by accident), I realized the "tappable" area was at the far left and is literally one character wide. What do I mean by that? Well, after the keyboard appeared, I simply typed the word "Aurora"—but I was truly unprepared for what the web client did with my typed text. In this case, a couple of screenshots truly are worth a thousand words. Below is a screenshot of what the web client did with the word "Aurora." (The red arrow is pointing to the first letter.) Even more bizarre: The note synced and displayed in the exact same manner in the Mac client (2nd screenshot). This one's a doozy…
  2. It's been seven months since I first reported this issue. Still no fix.
  3. Of course not. The Evernote team doesn't appear to care about fixing bugs.
  4. My Evernote notes no longer show up in Spotlight searches. Over the last 3 days, I've reindexed Spotlight twice, as well as rebuilding both indices via Evernote's hidden Troubleshooting menu (option-clicking the Help menu). So far, the evidence seems to be pointing to v7.5 Beta 2 as having broken Spotlight-search support.
  5. Whenever I open a note via Spotlight search, this build opens that note in a new window, despite the fact that I have the preference "Open note links from other applications in a new window" unticked. I've toggled the preference to no avail. Everything opens in a new window. Even more perplexing is the fact that each time those notes open in a new window, they open with an old text search (that I executed, months ago), as if I had newly performed that search. To be clear: Every note, regardless of content, opens in a new window with an old text search already executed inside that note. This is truly, truly bizarre. (EDIT: Later on the same day that I posted this, my Evernote notes stopped appearing in Spotlight searches all together. Since that's a separate issue, I've described it in a separate post.)
  6. Did you investigate this before replying? Notes opened in fullscreen still have the bright, green Share button. (Regardless, we shouldn't be forced to open notes in fullscreen, even in theory, just to remove gratuitous distractions. Apps should always stay out of the user's way.)
  7. The green Share button is profoundly distracting. Respectfully, it's just a button. Why must it be "illuminated," as if announcing something urgent? Why does that particular feature need to stand out more than others? What's wrong with gray? How does one remove it?
  8. During phone calls, the vast majority of iOS apps scale vertically to allow for the green active-call banner at the top of the screen. Evernote doesn't. As a result, it's either difficult or impossible to accurately tap the buttons displayed at the top of Evernote's interface. (Screenshot attached.)
  9. The way I see it, the answer to both of your questions is "yes." The titles are being truncated and it's a display issue. But I suspect you're actually asking a different question. ? If you're asking if Evernote is removing words and characters from my titles, the answer is "no." But if I can't see the words that are there, the practical result is effectively the same as removing them, because they're invisible. Thanks.
  10. I've all-but stopped reporting Evernote bugs, because it seems like the developers are apathetic about fixing them (and have been for years). But this bug is a showstopper, so I'm going to try… On iOS, the titles of certain, "random" notes are truncated in a way that the titles of other notes are NOT truncated. Please see the attached screenshot: The first note (green box) has a long title which wraps to a second line for readability. (That's good!) But the second note (red box) has a title that's actually shorter than the first note, yet its title is inexplicably truncated, omitting the last two words. In this note, instead of wrapping the title to a second line (like the title in the green box), this title is just truncated with NO wrapping to the second line at all. I have literally hundreds of notes with truncated titles, while other notes' titles effortlessly wrap to a 2nd line. Why do some titles wrap, while others are truncated, preventing us from seeing the full title? I have many, many notes whose titles I've appended with bullets, like so: The Absolute Greatest Note Ever ⚫ That Company's Whiz-Bang Doohickey #7 ⚫⚫ I use the bullets to draw attention to certain notes among a list of many. But due to this bug, the titles of MANY of those bulleted notes are truncated, such that the bullets aren't displayed at all. So, the above examples become this: The Absolute Greatest That Company's HUNDREDS of my note titles are truncated in this way, making them unreadable. (By the way, this also occurs in Evernote for Mac, although to a lesser extent. On macOS, fewer notes' titles are truncated—and not necessarily the same ones that are truncated on iOS.) Is anybody at Evernote paying attention? Do you use the product? If so, I'd think you'd have seen this. Is there any chance of you fixing this?
  11. Thanks for the update. Unfortunately, when viewing any note, the name of the associated notebook is now inexplicably truncated and unreadable, despite tons of horizontal white space. This is not helpful. Also, dragging images from Evernote to the desktop is still broken. About 80% of the time, what gets dragged is an empty text clipping, instead of the image. I often have to repeat the dragging process 4-8 times before the image is successfully dragged. I reported this months and months ago. No fix.
  12. I like the way note lists in Evernote for Mac are now displayed in Apple's San Francisco font. But the iOS apps still display notes with that dated, serif font. (See screenshot.) Why can't the iOS apps also use San Francisco (at least as an option)?
  13. Yes. This is yet another showstopper. When I scroll my list of notes either up or down, I, too, see nothing but white space after the first 20 or 30 notes. This happens with 100% reproducibility. Although clicking on another notebook, then back to the original notebook does redraw notes, it also returns you to the top of the list. So, the only way to view notes past the first 20 or 30 is to scroll until I see the white space, then click on the last, visible note before the white space. Then, upon doing so, another 20 or 30 notes will appear. Of course, in notebooks that have many dozens (or hundreds) of notes, this is excruciating and untenable. I fully understand that these are beta builds, but are they not tested for basic functionality before release? I'd understand new features being unstable, but why release builds in which fundamental features are broken? In the first attached screenshot, I left two notes at the top for clarity. But in actual practice, all notes disappear, leaving only white space (2nd screenshot). And again, this happens 100% of the time. I cannot scroll notes without this occurring.
  14. It's excruciating and literally renders my shortcuts unusable, forcing me to now search manually for every note for which I had created a shortcut. Please, please issue a quick update that fixes this. This is a show-stopper.
