  1. I cannot believe the design team made the 5-button shortcut bar push the entire screen over and take up the entire vertical column.Note content is now squeezed into less than half the width of the screen.This new layout feels absolutely terrible. Notes -- the primary content of the app -- feel crammed into the corner when browsing the note list. Note content should not be the same width as the note list, and overall take up less than 50% of horizontal screen space due to the space mostly wasted by the intrusive shortcut bar.Please roll back this design and let the screen breathe just a little. The current layout feels awful.
  2. It hasn't been updated in a year. Submitting feedback through the app just gives you an error message. The Evernote support Twitter account hasn't replied to a status request about it. This forum is super low-traffic and hasn't had an Evernote employee reply in forever. Scannable sure feels like abandonware to me ...
  3. In the latest Scannable app, on iOS 11.0.3, you cannot submit product feedback. If you go to Settings->Feedback->Submit Feedback, it just pops up an error message that says "Unable to submit feedback at this time." That's pretty bad.
  4. My wife and I were affected by this bug in a shared notebook. I even opened a support ticket on it, but we haven't received such an email despite our account definitely being affected on the one note where I noticed it (though who knows how many others may have been affected). Are other users slipping through the cracks with these notifications as well?
  5. What was the cause of this bug? It might help to know what made it happen, in terms of tracking down notes that were affected. I.e. if it was notes in certain types of notebooks, opened in the iOS client instead of the Mac one, etc ...
  6. Yeah, the offline notes feature is basically a tire fire. Downloaded notes sometimes get silently deleted during regular app updates, and Evernote does a terrible job of downloading them even if you turn off the feature, clear your cache, and re-enable them. It doesn't seem to be able to do much of it in the background, so you just have to leave the app open for extended periods and hope that another future bug doesn't delete them all again without telling you.
  7. This just happened to me as well. I'm a Premium user, but the note in question is shared by my wife from her account, so I don't have access to note history. Reported as bug 1836118.
  8. Simplify formatting is back in the current beta build, meaning that it'll also be in the next public release (barring some catastrophic bug, of course).
  9. After seeing this post I put my iPhone into airplane mode and checked to see, and yep … my offline notes have also all disappeared. 'Download All Notes' was still checked in my options, and they were downloaded in previous versions. Very frustrating. Definitely something that should be in the test plan for future releases.
  10. Please add the ability to select and copy text when in view mode. For an app that's all about storing information for later review, it makes no sense that you can't select and copy text from view mode. You can copy from edit mode, of course, but drag selection is pretty buggy and the keyboard takes up half the screen on iOS, so it's harder to select large blocks of text in edit mode. Plus, going into edit mode increases the chances that you'll accidentally mess up the content of the note itself (cutting instead of copying, or moving things around while fighting the sub-par bulk selection).
  11. Agreed. The removal of 'Simplify Formatting' is another "two steps forward, one step back" frustration with the new iOS editor.
  12. I have some notes with long strings, like file paths or long urls. On the Mac client, they wrap properly to the screen width. And when you're in editing mode on the iOS client, they wrap properly as well. But in view mode on the iOS client they don't wrap, and since they have to fit on one line they end up making the rest of the text look ridiculously small and hard to read. See the attached screenshots. This is in the brand new version of Evernote with the new note editor (version 7.16, released on August 30th). Reported as bug 1794028.
  13. Yep, another vote for "WTF, why did they remove simplify formatting?"
  14. As far as I can tell, this bug is new to 7.16. I just reported it as ticket 1794028. I have some notes with long strings, like file paths or long urls. On the Mac client, they wrap properly to the screen width. And when you're in editing mode on the iOS client, they wrap properly as well. But in view mode on the iOS client they don't wrap, and since they have to fit on one line they end up making the rest of the text look ridiculously small and hard to read. See the attached screenshots.
  15. Why is it taking so long to fix this bug? It’s been around for a month now. Given the recent price hike on Evernote, users expect better and faster support than this.
  16. This wasn't happening to me before, but it started happening to me when I upgraded to 6.8 today. Super annoying. I've been a paying customer for years; i don't want an upsell popping up every time I restart the app, especially since I already pay for Premium.
  17. This is promising (and much-needed). Is there anywhere I could look for more details, or is this more of just a thing that's been mentioned here and there?
  18. There was a golden era for a few months, maybe even a year, when Evernote's text formatting was pretty solid, but now the extraneous line breaks have returned. It makes using Evernote with any other text-accepting program incredibly frustrating. I haven't been able to find a solid repro path, but I have found that in notes that have nothing but text, and which have no formatting of any kind, sometimes when I copy/paste the text from Evernote into other apps there will be extraneous line breaks. There will frequently be an extra line break above the first line of the note, and sometimes extra line breaks are inserted randomly in between lines of text. They aren't inserted mid-sentence, they are always inserted where there is a line break. It's as if you hit Enter twice when starting a new line, not just once. In my experience, this is 100% caused by Evernote. I have tested it with numerous other text-handling apps, and Evernote is always the culprit. Here's a probably-not-comprehensive list of other apps that interoperate perfectly with each other, but not with simple text from Evernote: FirefoxNotesTabPagesScrivenerSparrowTextEditUnity3D EditorI have notes that look correct in Evernote (i.e. no extraneous line breaks) that will have line breaks if I copy them into any of the above programs. The text always looks right in Evernote and is always busted in the same way in any other app I paste it into. If I recreate the exact same text in any of the programs above and paste them into any of the other programs above, the integrity of the text is preserved perfectly. It seems that Evernote still doesn't have a clean text formatting engine, and that there are some non-standard ways it handles text for itself that are incompatible with the rest of the text formatting world. It's super frustrating not to be able to rely on WYSIWYG formatting. Despite all of the features that have been piled into Evernote over the years, it is a text-based program. The first thing you see when you create a note is a blank text note with a blinking cursor. It's disappointing that after years of struggles, Evernote still doesn't have acceptable text handling for basic, raw, formatting-free text. I'm using Evernote 5.2.1 on Mac and Evernote 5.4.3 on an iPad 2 and iPhone 5. I wouldn't be surprised if these extra line breaks were introduced in notes that have been edited by multiple Evernote clients.
  19. Just needed find + replace on the Mac and stumbled on this thread while looking for how to do it. Evernote is a text-based app; it's pretty crazy that it doesn't have such a basic text-editing function. My workaround is copying and pasting back and forth between Evernote and Textedit (which unfortunately reveals other Evernote bugs, like the app inserting extraneous carriage returns that don't show up in Evernote but show up in all other text apps).
  20. Don't bother waiting a month. Undo isn't coming back. They got rid of it 8 months ago and have been completely silent on bringing it back since then. It's not going to happen. I mean, who would want an undo option in a software program? It's not like any other apps have that. The Evernote engineers certainly see no use for it; they figure that if they never make any mistakes, why would their users? So if you're done with Evernote, just bail now.
  21. There used to be a cancel button on the iPhone, but it was pulled for some reason that hasn't been articulated. It still exists in the iPad app, making it doubly confusing why it was cut and/or hasn't been reenabled; Evernote is a universal app, after all. The functionality clearly exists, and used to exist in the iPhone app. There've been extensive requests and discussions about the cancel button among users here on the forum, but as yet the devs haven't given their perspective or commented on whether or not the cancel button will make a return. Thanks for posting, though, as it adds another voice to the choir.
