  1. I'm piling on. This is annoying as hell. I understand if people want or need to be reminded, but opting out should be possible for more experienced users (i.e. adults.). In fact, it should be easy. If you Evernote people are reading these posts, fix this ASAP, please!!!
  2. I am still seeing the distortion. Same behavior and same versions as Rydazzle above. Also, in my case, neither selecting from the menu nor shift-command-F does anything at all to the photo.
  3. Thanks @BSR (and @gazumped) -- really glad to hear it's on your radar. If the iOS fix isn't retroactive, and if anyone comes up with a script or something to fix a lot of images, I'd love to hear about it.
  4. Gazumped: I have now done a completely fresh install of Evernote (from the App store, if that matters) and re-synched it. Still seeing the distorted images. They stretch and shrink horizontally as I expand or contract the window in which they're displayed. Height remains constant. A cut and paste fixes the problem, as does rotating the image. No idea how to proceed at this point.
  5. Restarting my Mac, yes many times. Reinstalling Evernote? No, not yet. I'll try that.
  6. This is happening to me as well. I have hundreds, maybe thousands of images capture on my iPhone and showing up distorted on my Mac. The images stretch horizontally as the viewing window is expanded, but the vertical dimensions stays constant. Seems like an HTML thing to me? Evernote v. 6.11.1 Mac OS 10.12.5 iOS 10.3.2 Is there no way to fix this? Cutting and pasting seems to work. Rotating one direction, then re-rotating the other does, too. Needless to say, I do not want to manually rotate all those images or cut and paste all of them. This is a recent development — perhaps just one or two Evernote versions ago. How can I fix this?
  7. Oh, look. A calm, intelligent, rational post! Thank you KrisGal. I think the goal here is to get the app to work better rather than ranting about it. (The internet makes that too easy.) I have experienced this very noticeable lag, too. It does seem like a syncing issue, and I agree it did not exist previously — at least not to this extent. I have a very fast broadband connection and, even so, have been seeing big delays in accessing notes, creating new ones, even editing existing ones. I seem the same kinds of delays over my Verizon cell network, so I don't think it has to do with network speeds. I will add that manually syncing seems to happen pretty normally -- just takes a few seconds for those arrows to stop spinning. OmniFocus used to have these issues and somehow they fixed it. Perhaps Evernote should investigate how they did that.
  8. Figured something out. If you export your notes from another application as an HTML file, then drag that onto the Evernote icon to create a new note, it seems to retain the structural formatting. Haven't finished messing with it yet, but it did (for example) create a new bullet when I hit Return at the end of a list. Which is what I was looking for. On a Mac, it should be pretty easy to create a Hazel rule that puts any HTML file you put in an "Add to Evernote" folder into Evernote as a new note. I'm sure there are equivalents for Windows. Worth a try. Odd that this works, but pasting in HTML format directly into a new note does not.
  9. DTLow, sorry for not being clearer. The problem I'm having is in trying to find a way of pasting that retains the formatting and functionality of the source material -- same as everyone else on this thread. I tried plain text with markdown to see if Evernote understood it. It doesn't. So that is not an option, though it seems to me it would be a relatively simple and good solution. Using RTF, Evernote retains some of the visual formatting but none of the structure, so bullets and numbering are no longer "live"... the bullet is copied, but not the ability (for example) to hit return and generate another bulleted line in the list. These are very basic structural elements that work in pretty much all email clients, in many, many word processors including the simplest ones, in Apple Notes, in Bear, Notesy, Drafts, Notational Velocity, NVAlt, UpWord, etc etc etc. Seems to me Evernote should import and retain that information -- especially because it can create lists like that internally.
  10. Apologies for characterizing my post as a bump. Started reading at the top and didn't check the dates by the time I got to the end. I'm working with current versions on Mac and IOS, so it's clear it's not all solved yet. But I'm glad to know they're working on making it better. In general, I love Evernote and am a long-time user and fan with a Premium subscription. But this clunkiness is annoying as hell when so many other productivity apps seem to work fairly smoothly by comparison. Comforting to read that I am not alone in my frustration.
  11. I'd like to bump this topic. After trying to copy from a simple text editor in plain text, Markdown, RTF and HTML, none of them gives a me a consistent, editable, good looking result. Bullets, for example, disappear or else come through as "hard" bullets with tabs before and after, rather than in Everrnote's bulleted list format. A numbered list does the same thing. I think I'd be happy with structural continuity even if the formatting changed a bit. If Evernote understood and rendered Markdown, for example, that could work. I would LOVE it if lists maintained formatting and outline structures, including indentations.
  12. Did you ever figure out the best format to paste into Evernote? I've been testing out a new note app for Mac (called Bear) and have tried plain text, markdown, RTF and HTML and none of them is great. Any luck? Thanks.
  13. What worked for me was reinstalling the app. That's what Evernote recommended, but in the meantime I had gotten a new phone, so had to reinstall (from a backup) anyway. Cleared it up.
  14. Thanks, gazumped. Just tried doing that and no dice. The notification is still there AND I can't delete the message thread (have tried three times -- nothing happens when I hit "Delete"). Maybe time to contact Evernote support.
  15. I have a notification "1 new" on my home screen in the IOS app -- a little blue "pill" next to the "Work Chat" item at the top. The only thing I can see that might be triggering it is a message I sent someone in an attempt to share a note that has a "Delivery failed" notification under it, and a red exclamation point in a circle next to it. How can I get rid of the notification? I can re-share the note from the Mac app rather than the IOS one. Will that take care of it? Thanks.
