    Google search widget shows pictures attached to notes

    I've decided to include a step by step instructions. The menus are non-intuitive to say the least. I also wanted to include the bonus steps 5 and 6 which disable the trash suggestions which only delay the ready state of the search app when you try to do a quick search. I also recommend Pixlr app

    Google search widget shows pictures attached to notes

    Go to Google Search app settings (click on the G and proceed from there) - Search section: Personal Disable the apps content from which you do not want to see in Search.
  4. I don't know what has happened but the fast opening I remember from 2017, maybe early 2018. Now a plain text note opens longer than a note with e.g. 100 KB of images used to open in the past. Text notes used to open almost instantaneously. Same device. And I did a clean system reset twice since this started happening. I always use Evernote installed in the internal phone memory. Device: Moto X Play, Android 7.
  5. The bug is still present for months now. What's worse the behavior may lead to a broken note as Evernote know no limits as far as placing dropped attachments. It may even nest it in the middle of a URL, making the operation of removing it from there rather risky. Sometimes when I drop two images one is placed randomly somewhere in the note, while the other is not placed anywhere in the note. As usual, it used to work flawlesly! Here's my previous post on the issue. Possibly related:

    Disable auto format

    Food for thought: What is the most important bit about auto-formatting features in the latest generations of MS Office? It's that you can stop it immediately.

    Firefox support for new web version updates

    Excuse me. What are you talking about? I use Evernote Web on the latest (always) Firefox daily. I don't see any problems apart from duplicate note creation which is a known EvernoteforWeb-specific issue.

    ANSWERED Duplicate Notes Issue

    To clarify: My test notes are not shared, and are in an un-shared notebook, plus: edited on a single device (Web). So we're left with "confused by a web browser connection". As I stated already, I do not consider it a valid cause. Especially that Evernote Web relies on a mindfield-like mechanism of instantaneous syncing, exposing to all possible risks without taking advantage of the single existing advantage of the mechanism. I do use an external editor now and I highly recommend the multitab, autosaving Notepad++ (unformatted text only) but it's a freaking patchwork as far as the whole situation goes. BTW, I've been using Evernote Web since inception for a year or so and I don't recall such problems in its infancy.

    ANSWERED Duplicate Notes Issue

    I keep getting duplicate of notes that are not shared, in an un-shared notebook. First Evernote wanted us to ignore that on its way to "providing great formatting features" it doesn't handle unformatted text properly and now this.. I've been using software that "saves something to the internet and back" since late 90's and I don't recall a similar behavior of an app effectively jeopardizing content "due to <excuse>". Recently I've wasted possibly hours on loading duplicates into a text comparator (Notepad++) to avoid messing up really important information by continuing with edits in the wrong note. Because the "duplicates" are not really duplicates! They are notes differing with the last edit or few edits!
  10. I, on the other hand, like the new bold headers. It's a great way to differentiate between the header and the contents when the contents are visible. In most other applications I de-clutter general views as much as possible. For example, in outlook.com and fastmail.com I have message contents hidden in the general (list) view.

    Scroll back up bug back from the dead

    In my case right after #4 the carret (cursor?) jumps to the top of the note. Should we consider it the same bug?

    Why so many background processes?

    So all good with my installation, I guess. Thanks, guys!

    Disable auto format

    This is infuriating! Glad to see the team working on it. Upvoting of course.
  14. There are 6 Evernote background processes running on my machine when Evernote is open. Is it necessary? What do they do? The total memory utilization is circa 200 MB. The last bit is for information. This is not my main concern. I'm curious whether Evernote operates on my system correctly.

    Evernote for Windows 6.13 GA

    One more thing to be added to my post above. The issue with the note editing section losing focus the first time the cursor is placed inside is still present. This time I do not remember with which release the issue was introduced.
