  1. This is driving me crazy! On Mac v. 10.9.10, I can't figure out how to stop creating checkboxes when I type "[]" or even "[ ]". Insane! This is seriously impacting my use of this product, that I rely on daily. 😡
  2. Has anyone looked at AppleScript support? This is important to me. So far, not seeing any compelling advantages to the new version. And what happened to Preferences?
  3. Here's my use case: I have a number of rather lengthy Evernotes assembled over years, made up of clips, links, explanations, and short notes to myself about various topics. They're not particularly well organized, but that's one of the nice things about Evernote—they don't have to be. Within such a note, a given term may appear dozens of times. Some of these occurrences are about aspects of the term itself, while most of them are about other topics and simply happen to use the term. So when I go searching for a particular bit of information about the term, most of the hits will be basically irrelevant. It's a fairly lengthy process to go through them all. Through repeated use, I may come to recall that the particular item I'm looking for is "about 60% of the way through the note." This helps, but what would really help is knowing that the item is "hit #17 of the search term". That's why I'd like to have this information available. (In fact, it would be great to be able to jump directly to hit #17!) No, it won't change the world, but given that it would be fairly easy to implement, it would be a nice, useful enhancement. Truly awesome would be a Table of Contents feature: define a "Table of Contents" text style. When you apply this style to a bit of text, it would appear in an auto-generated ToC at the top of the note (or a separate window). The table would show each appearance of the term, with a few words of context before and after it. Click on an occurrence to go to that position in the note.
  4. When you search for text within a note, all the found instances are highlighted, and you can step forward or back through them with the arrows. That's fine, but it would be much better if when you go to a given instance, it displayed "Item 7 of 24 found". Click the right arrow, and it would say "Item 8 of 24 found", and so on.
  5. It would be SO GREAT if, when I return to a note I was just looking at, the scroll position was automatically restored! Currently notes always open scrolled to their top. It would save a lot of time if I didn't have to go hunting for the part I was just referring to.
  6. OK, removing all the tags from the note allowed it to move. IMO this is lame and misleading. The message should at least say something like "Cannot move note because the destination notebook does not contain all its tags." Currently there is no hint that the note will not be moved. Better would be a dialog that says "If you move this note to <notebook name>, the following tags will be removed: <list of tags>. Buttons should say "Move anyway" and "Cancel move".
  7. A Windows user shared a notebook with me. I can access the notebook in Evernote, but when I try to move one of my notes into it, I get a message that "only tags that are already in this notebook will be added to this note". I click "OK" and … nothing happens. The note stays where it is. Syncing doesn't help. Evernote Mac 6.13.1, macOS 10.13.1
  8. The worst part of this is no bulleted/numbered lists, since they provide a way to insert a code block into a "parent" list without messing up the parent's numbering scheme. The code can be a 1 (or more) item sub-list inside a parent item. Sadly, I have used this a lot.
  9. It looks like this is a major issue, and yet…crickets. Oh, I get it now: the entire editor coding team is busy working on implementing Search & Replace. NOT!
  10. I selected a block of several lines that were afflicted with this bug, and gave the "Simplify Formatting" command. The formatting was simplified to apparently the default text style, but the last line of the block was unselected. This is repeatable: I select the now-simplified block and give the Simplify command again, and nothing changes except the last line of the block is unselected. Also, applying the "code block" style does nothing. Here's the text I'm using: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> [necessary?] <resources> [must be root node] <string name="string_name">Some Text</string> ... </resources> This is with version 6.12.2
  11. Evernote 6.12 Beta 3. I just noticed the problem the other day; it may have been after an update. The same problem appears in the web interface! See attached screenshot, showing Safari. Note near the top of the image how when the line wraps the continuation actually overwrites the first part of the line. There are many, many instances of this in my notes. Not good!

  12. Right. Somehow I lost the custom definition of the "short" date format. Fixed now.
  13. I have a lot of notes with text blocks formatted as Code. Suddenly these blocks appear to have been oddly reformatted, with each line apparently enclosed in a doubly-nested code block. I can select these lines, then "Simplify Formatting" and they are transformed to a single block with default text style. Then I can reapply the Code style to get something like what I had. But what a pain!
  14. Suddenly, out of the blue, the ISO 8601 date format is no longer on the list of available formats in Formatting Preferences for "Insert Date". The only options shown are: 8/22/17, Aug 22, 2017, August 22, 2017, and Tuesday, August 22, 2017. None of these are acceptable. I need 2017-08-22 What happened? Evernote 6.11.1, Mac OS 10.11.6
