  1. Late reply. Sorry. The way I see it, I shouldn't have to worry about what will and what won't. I don't think it's unreasonable to expect that it just works. The inconsistency in the way content is pasted into Evernote is off the chart. It's doubly frustrating when it's so hard to fix because Evernote's formatting tools are so kludgy. If it was even productive to author in another app then paste into Evernote that would be something but it's not because you never know what you're going to get. It's a mess.
  2. As per the title. Turning 'enable code block' to off doesn't turn the feature off. typing ``` still creates a code block. Version 6.12.1 (455453 Direct) thanks.
  3. OK, I just tried this again and it all seems to be working. I can resize the last column and I can add text after the last table in a note. I've checked this on a new note and on the note I was originally checking repro steps and it's back to being fine. Obviously there was something that was but is no longer. I'll post back if it happens again.
  4. I'm running Version 6.12 Beta 1 (455160 Direct) of Evernote, MacOS Sierra 10.12.5 The steps are pretty straightforward, just make a table last thing in the note. Are you sure your marquee is right at the end of the note so the table goes in as the very last item?
  5. Ammendment to above; if you place a table at the end of a note you can't a. add text after it or b. select the table to delete it. Repro steps: 1. position text marquee right at the end of the note 2. [][] to get a table. Now try to add text after it or delete it.
  6. If I could make some further observations re tables: I can make the table width match the note width but then I end up with a bunch of tables of different width because I've probably resized my window between creating tables and matching them to the note width. I end up with a bunch of different width tables, which is messy, and no fast way to resize them. I could do with, maybe, setting an explicit width with the option of a 100% width, maybe. I could do with alternating row colours. I could do with a header row. I know, I can do this with bg colours & whatnot but just a button click would be faster. If I add a table at the end of the note I can't add text after the table; trying to click in a space after the table just places the marquee on the last row. The workaround is to cut the table, add some blank rows and repaste the table before the new blank rows. If I can actually select the full table. Sometimes I can't. The hamburger - top right of the table - doesn't select the table. It only selects the text contents of the table. There really needs to be a way to select the actual table as well.
  7. I can't resize the last column in a table: Create a table using [][] add some text to each cell I can drag the centre border to resize the left column but the right hand border isn't draggable. It sounds like a small thing but I have a cell here with around 400 words of text that can only be displayed 2 words wide. It's illegible.
  8. I've been messing about with copy/paste of formatted text in and out of Evernote. HTML into Evernote, it's not just pictures; some formatting doesn't make it over either. A particular example is an html page that's been created using multimarkdown or Pandoc, pasted from a browser into Evernote doesn't paste the syntax highlighting colours - css all inline, no JS. The current best solution is to use textutil to convert from the HTML to RTF but it's a bit all over the place. I'd like to have some idea of exactly doesn't and doesn't paste correctly when pasting frome browsers to Evernote. Is there a list somewhere?
  9. Yes, it would but if the tag were localised you wouldn't need to. You simply click the classes tag . Quicker, simpler. Plus the tag view would give you an immediate view of your note structure; how many Javascript->classes tagged notes you have. But other might. Making it available would make little difference to you but would increase functionallity for those that see it as a useful feature. It's not uncommon, in fact I'd say it's the norm, for hierarchies in other applications to have locally scoped tags or categories. Bear, Mweb, all allow for this. Intuitively it works.
  10. But the script saves you that step. It's quicker and why do it if you don't need to.
  11. That, also, would work for me. Although it's a shame we have to jump through hoops like this. Thanks for your input.
  12. Kind of where I was going. For me, though, I'd still prefer to be able to localise tags within hierarchies. The problem for me is that complicates the process of showing, say, all #Javascript #Classes. The given example is a simple one and there are ways to make it easier but I can see how it could easily get out of hand as the database grows. The whole point of a hierarchy, my view, is that it allows localisation. A good example would be directory structures.
  13. The script selects the current line for you; that you can't do from a menu.
  14. FWIW, I was looking into using Applescript to format single lines of text for title headers in notes. I just got fed up with digging around in Font dialogs when all I wanted was for this line to be H2, or something. It uses System events to select and grab the current line into the clpboard then calls the textutil standalone to do the formatting, pasting the result back into the note. It's kludgy but functional. The most significant annoyance is that it requires 2 1 second sleeps. I see no way around that. For myself I have it stored as a set of Keyboard Maestro Macros for varying sizes, triggered by text strings #, ##, ###, ###, etc as per Markdown - I have shortcut keys coming out my ears and this is easy to remember. delay 1 -- necessary tell application "System Events" keystroke (ASCII character 28) using {command down} keystroke (ASCII character 29) using {command down, shift down} keystroke "c" using {command down} end tell delay 1 -- necessary -- set fontsize to 28 do shell script "pbpaste | textutil -stdin -stdout -convert rtf -fontsize 28 | pbcopy" tell application "System Events" to keystroke "v" using command down Enjoy
  15. big +1 on this from me. Time saving and consistench are the benefits.
