  1. A new ZAP? Sorry, not familiar with that term. But yes, I did create a new app, simple one to enter notes on the fly. and same behavior, no data entry, never runs.
  2. Boy, none that I can discover. I have narrowed it down to any app that takes input. It opens a screen but no data entry field and pressing the evernote button causes it to dim, but does not "enter". I am thinking it is the phone os which was android 10 until yesterday and now the phone is a replacement still on android 9. So a fresh install of the service on a new phone did not resolve the problem as you might hope. This problem started well before the poor phone got fried. DO buttons do work. And yes, they all worked quite fine since as early as 2015.
  3. I have a number of them and they have been working for years. And they all say connected but when I run them on my android phone nothing happens. Ones that let me make notes open a screen but no way to make an entry, and pressing the Evernote button does nothing. I have looked everywhere to find something I need to reauthorize or what not but nothing. Where do I find the place to connect IFTTT to my Evernote account?
  4. Hum, so it does work for some, maybe its the version I have on my laptop. Thanks for the help confirming.
  5. Thank you, DTLow, that is a feature description, similar to the hover over help. That how I found out there is a feature Snap to Shape. But nothing about how to make use of it.
  6. Evernote Windows has a Ink note type that you can do handwritting and drawings using a laptop or tablet that supports a pen or stylus input. One opt is to make regular shapes (I guess) like circles and rectangles. But nothing in help on it and I cannot get it to do any thing. Ink could be a very useful thing with a bit of work .
  7. Does it work? I cannot find any thing on how to use it, or figure it out myself.
  8. I would use this all the time! I have grid pads everywhere I work to make quick drawings of solutions.
  9. Thanks gazumped, I am testing more. Reinstalled Adobe Acrobat, seems trying Foxit might have knocked it out. I did not realize that the pdf viewer, which ever, was adjusting the size of the page, be it PDF for just text to fit a page. So If I set the margins to 1" I get 1.3" both sides, setting them to 0.7" I get 1" both sides. So not quite perfect. But better than I first thought. Note to Self: Always restart, reboot. Frequently. Even your phone.
  10. I installed 6.17 on one computer to see how it is going and dismayed that printing is not usable. Evernote did have a reasonable print and print preview utility that I could set margins and check to see if I needed to edit down to reduce wasted pages. So now even though they have Page Layout, it does nothing, Print prints without margins, and now you are forced to use that Foxit program to preview and it does not give any options to set margins. Foxit is nasty, installs all sorts of malware (as far as I am concerned) and wants to get lots of money for us. Evernote? Is this the end of printing? Why should I use Evernote if I have to keep swapping documents out to some other program? (To all of you who are going to shame me for not being paperless you have to realize that paperless may work for you personally, but in the real world where I am there are many workers who need instructions and who do not carry a laptop or table around with them. I find Evernote an excellent way to quickly produce and revise instruction books on the fly. ) And now I cannot open PDF's in Adobe Acrobat Reader!!!
  11. Dave, I can go along with that, if I can set margins. I tried but no success. The page setup in Evernote does not translate to the PDF. One piece of what I do with Evernote (just one of many!) involves keeping some printed notebooks up to date and they need margins. Yep, someone could access them online, but that means they need another laptop or tablet to keep some written instructions that they might need to scribble on while they are busy following the instructions and looking stuff up on their laptop.
  12. Well Dave, I don't need much of an editor. I need a place to store everything and then find it, and have it accessible from anywhere and any computer. And when I print documents is doesn't take much. If I need to get fancy I go to Google or Word. I see now reason why they should have broken print preview, or a lot of other things either.
  13. Thanks, jafito, for confirming what I saw. A lot of what I do with Evernote is pretty up documents to be printed, most of the time just one page. I have reverted back to 6.7.6 until I hear good news.
  14. I am using the released version 6.16. Sure I can see Print Preview on the menu just like you. Have you clicked on it to see what it does?
  15. I have avoided upgrading for a while because of so many things get broken in each new version. Yesterday I dared to go to Thought it was OK until I went to print a Note. I have always used Print Preview to make adjustments and check the number of pages being printed. Its nothing but a pdf in an Adobe! And no way to set margins anymore, the default seems to be about a half inch. Page Setup is now completely useless. Has no effect on printing. HELP! I would like to stick with the new version, I really like having two databases open a the same time, but this another bug I have found are sending me back to an old one.
