  1. On my Mac, often (but not always) when I cut text from one section of a note and paste it into a new section, it fails. In my clipboard history (Launchbar) I can see something called "Evernote Clipboard Object" but Evernote won't accept its content as a valid item to paste. But if I undo the cut (cmd-Z) and RE-copy it, it will then work. And in the history, it appears to be a normal text clipboard item. Selecting and dragging text around has been working fine. Does anyone know what's going on here? MacOS 11.1 Evernote 10.6.9-mac-mas-public
  2. If I accidentally close the main window in the Mac app, there's no way to open it again without quitting the app and relaunching it. Nothing in the View or File menu. Seems pretty lame. Am I missing something?
  3. When I Cut a section of text (often checklists) and try to Paste them elsewhere (usually in the same note) I get... nothing. The "Cut" works and puts something in my clipboard that the "Paste" function doesn't recognize. I can see it in my Clipboard History (using Launchbar) as "Evernote Clipboard Object"), but it doesn't Paste. I can go back sometimes and Copy rather than Cut the text, then Paste it and that works. But "Cut" doesn't. Any idea what's up? This is relatively new behavior — since the big Evernote for Mac update. Using a 2017 MacBook Pro with Touch Bar Big Sur 11.1 at the moment. Evernote 10.5.7
  4. I have created links to paste into other apps (like OmniFocus) using Copy Internal Link > Copy App Link. When I click the link in the other app, I get an error message: "There is no application set to open the URL" Then I have to go through my list of apps, click on Options so the Mac allows me to select Evernote (instead of just its recommended apps) and finally the note will open in the Evernote Desktop app, which is what I wanted in the first place, I want these types of URLs to ALWAYS launch correctly, opening the Evernote app and displaying the note in questions. (I don't want to use it in my browser.... takes forever to launch and load.) Is there a way to accomplish this? I know how to select an app to always open a particular file type. But not a URL. Thanks!
  5. Same problem here, using Skitch 2.9 and Mac OS 10.15.6 on a 2017 Macbook Pro. Really a drag (sorry) to lose this functionality. I hope you can figure out how to make it work again. But it does work in the browser (see attached).
  6. 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!!!
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Restarting my Mac, yes many times. Reinstalling Evernote? No, not yet. I'll try that.
  11. 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?
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
