  1. Just found a new nice "feature" of cut and paste from my Evernote to Outlook. Try pasting a list with check-boxes in it without converting to pure text (which would completely kill my indented bullet list).... It gives me "Fehler! Es wurde kein Dateiname angegeben!" (in English sth like "Error! No file name given!"). My Clipboard-Spying-Tool shows me that Evernote is using special img tags in the HTML-converted data in the clipboard "<img class="en-todo">". Apparently Outlook tries to parse these tags and complains about the missing file. According to http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_img.asp this is invalid HTML code as "The <img> tag has two required attributes: src and alt." ... Apart from that bullet lists with different indent. levels themselves are also still a horrible mess...
  2. My current workaround: AutoHotKey script that opens a dialog to enter some text. This is saved as a txt in an auto import folder for Evernote. Sadly, there does not seem to be a command line switch for this.
  3. Gazumped, it might not be your standard use case but apparently for a lot of users it is one. So putting this down as an "edge case" is IMHO a little condescending. Of course there are workarounds like "regularly look for misplaced notes by sorting by date and saved searches etc." - but these are only workarounds for a problem apparently also recognized by the developers (see the comments regarding my bug report above). So probably also no need to file another bug report for the same issue.
  4. No, he won't. If you read this thread carefully you will see that there is a situation your notes will go to somewhere work somewhere in some notebook in Evernote minimize or even close the Evernote main window do something completely different in a completely different application ... for a longer time .... have an idea and want to make a quick note using Evernotes global shortcut Win+N (or Ctrl+Alt+N or whatever you choose in the settings) jot down your note easily miss the fact that (regardless of all the nice settings in Evernote) the last active notebook you may have used some hours ago is preselected for your new note (instead of your default notebook) unintentionally save the new note to this notebook by just jotting-down-and-closing the note window
  5. When I get a mail with an Evernote note link (e.g. for a reminder; https://www.evernote.com/shard/s18/nl/2071628/...) it opens in Safari where I most of the time have to login into Evernote (as the login expires after 30 days). The current iOS however allows to open specific URLs directly in the corresponding app (e.g. Wikipedia links in the Wikipedia app, Amazon links in the Amazon app etc.). IMHO this behavior would be excellent for Evernote on iOS, too.
  6. Unfortunately not. The ticket itself got even closed today "because the issue was given to engineering and they will look at it and there's nothing more we can tell you now so please just keep updating Evernote hoping for a fix"
  7. In the meantime the ticket got escalated to technical support (I asked for it)
  8. Here's their Feedback: Prior to version 6, new note shortcut went to default. After version 6, new note shortcut goes to current notebook. There isn't currently an option in the menu to choose where new notes created via shortcut are placed. The change the team is working on would add this option in. There are a lot of users that have requested the old behavior back, so the issue is definitely on the engineering team's radar. I've passed on your input as well and will do what I can to get the change prioritized.
  9. The problem was escalated to their "technical team for further review".
  10. Ok. So I got my feedback which can be summed up as "known bug", "some rather inconvenient workaround suggestions" and "unknown when Evernote will address this".
  11. I filed a bug (Ticket# 1737245 - Wrong notebook using the global Win+N shortcut).
  12. I just filed a ticket ("Ticket# 1737217 - Copy-Pasting bullet lists from Evernote to Outlook destroys list format")...
  13. Another workaround: Use the (new?) Evernote Webinterface to copy your text. It works in either direction (Evernote Web -> Outlook and vice versa) without breaking bullet lists!
  14. BTW I just tried the equivalent on my Mac. Here everything works as expected....
  15. The time it takes to change the notebook is not the problem but to remember that you have to do it.
  16. I don't think it's philosophical. In the aforementioned settings you can actually choose between either the setting "current or default notebook" or "always use the following notebook". When I choose the second and set it to my default notebook I expect everything to go there.
  17. You can change the global shortcuts in the Evernote settings if Win+N conflicts with OneNote. When I'm actively using Evernote I press the "normal" shortcut Ctrl+N to create a note in the notebook I'm currently looking at. This always works fine. When I'm somewhere in another application and an idea strucks my mind I press Win+N to quickly write it down. Here I want my default notebook to be preselected in the separate note editor window and not some "random" notebook that happened to be the last I had open in Evernote some time ago. Thus, there are two separate shortcuts for two different scenarios that IMHO should behave differently.
  18. Pressing the global shortcut Win+N I get a new note with the notebook currently selected in Evernote (not expected) instead of the default notebook (expected) - even when another application has the focus. I even explicitly set the desired notebook as the target notebook in the settings (in the section that should be called "capture" ("Erfassen" in German)).
  19. +1 Still (again?) a problem using the current Win Evernote on Windows 10.
  20. In the meantime, I got myself a clean install of Win10 and Office 2016. No the problem seems to be gone. Maybe it comes from Office 2013?
  21. Have you ever tried to write a list like this with EN Mac: (a) (b) (c) x Don't or else you'll go nuts. (c) x gets converted to copyright symbol. Undo removes the symbol and the (c). Even switching "Correct Spelling Automatically" off does not help in this case. In contrast, when doing the same in OS X TextEdit, Cmd+Z reconstructs the (c)...
  22. Other people are having the same problem. See my post there. The answer of the Evernote team is just sad. Fire up OS X TextEdit and compare the behavior!
  23. This is just a stupid behavior of Evernote and even independent of your special language problem. Typing some more technical words in a more common language yields the same. Other people are saying the same. Here, a bug was reported and the Evernote team seems to deem the behavior "normal". Try firing up the OS X TextEdit App and do the same there. Autocorrect is undone correctly... I am afraid these are the usual insufficiencies of the Evernote text editor. Maybe the new CEO with his focus on core features will help with this one...
