  1. 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:
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. In my case right after #4 the carret (cursor?) jumps to the top of the note. Should we consider it the same bug?
  8. This is infuriating! Glad to see the team working on it. Upvoting of course.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Drag&drop of attachments into a note body is still broken! It's been introduced with the 6.8 update if I recall. It makes the note text become randomly mixed with the attached images! In the example below the PDF has been dropped precisely below the "Adobe Reader fuckup!" Reference to the previous mention https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/110626-evernote-for-windows-68-ga/?do=findComment&comment=489788
  12. You're lucky you're using the Android app. On desktop an image may become pasted *anywhere* in the note. Literally. Even splitting a webpage address in half.
  13. "Many sans serif typefaces don’t differentiate between the uppercase “I” and the lowercase “l” very well. (...) This a legibility problem."* https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/39543/is-there-a-sans-serif-font-that-appears-different-for-i-capital-i-and-l-small Especially when working with foreign and technical texts. Add Evernote's constant problems with formatting and there you have it. A mess. I'd opt for a mono font if I could. *And a backward embarrassment, I might add! Clearly the font selection nowadays usually caters to looks and cruft lovers.
  14. I've just confirmed that I'd like to install the update and Evernote removed itself!
  15. This is the worst update I've had since several months ago! Then Evernote introduced some changes that make non-formatted text appear in different font sizes within a single note (still not fixed!). Now it's even worse! The cursor goes haywire and I've already lost some data because of it! Attaching photos is broken too. Drag&dropping or using the 'Attach' button makes the note text become randomly mixed with the attached images! Do you even realize you fail to implement a freaking input field?! Dig around on github. There are probably free code snippets you could use instead of your current sorry implementation.
  16. One-by-one is obviously not a solution, nor even a reasonable workaround. The in-app zooming only zooms text. The 'Windows-side' theory is not feasible. It's applications that should handle global system variables, not the other way around. Besides, the 'Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display' is the only place I know of in Windows 7 that carries applicable parameters.
  17. I'm using 125% scaling in Windows. XP style enabled or not, it causes Evernote to display images at 125% scaling. Is there a way around it? Ctrl+scrollwheel only scales the text.
  18. I see nothing in your post. BTW, the small text is all over my notes now, edited since the big update. Apparently Evernote either renders all unformatted text created post-update differently, no matter the device OR formatting removal is broken since the update.
  19. Hello! Since the recent revamp of the built-in note editor I have several new issues. One of which is this: pasted text appears smaller. See the attached screenshot. Both text are of 9 points. I even did the copy-paste from the upper line to the lower line within the note. Removing of formatting has no effect. the latest version of Evernote I'm on Windows 7 with 125% scaling.
  20. +1 The shortcuts for web app should be documented properly.
  21. So, has listview been removed from both desktop and the web apps?
  22. Indeed. List views (two-panel file managers) are all about maximising information density and are thus an extremely useful tool for experienced knowledge workers with "real work" to accomplish. It's why we see information-dense UIs such as list views in nearly all serious productivity tools. Unfortunately for Evernote Web users, it appears Evernote is targeting its Web Beta at a different type of user, for whom a "clean" UI is the overriding requirement, with information density (and thus productivity) clearly not a priority. Evernote has had months and months of feedback that the Web Beta hinders the productivity of experienced Evernote users, but is sticking to its guns. The conclusion must be that the Evernote Beta is aimed at a different user base, likely to be new/novice Evernote users, not experienced knowledge workers for whom productivity is key. Unless Evernote changes course (of which there is currently no sign...) then it seems reasonable to conclude that these experienced knowledge worker types will have no choice but to begin looking elsewhere for their productivity tools. Sad, I know, but I don't see what the alternative is. I'm still using Evernote Web (the current non-beta version), but will probably be abandoning Evernote if/when this is deprecated and replaced with the Web Beta. Also, I've stopped evangelising about Evernote to friends/family until I see what path Evernote chooses. This is all very disappointing, but we have to deal with the hand we're dealt not the hand we'd choose ourselves. Hi! Personally, I'm after >various information visible at a glance< plus the accompanying ability of rapid: - sorting - data entry So to me it's not only about the number of notes visible at once.
  23. I can't speak for everyone but to me personally the whole point of the list view is not to eliminate images. It's to have additional information available at a glance. Tags, dates etc. Millions of people using two-panel file managers like Total Commander or Double Commander (or the 'Detailed' view in Windows Explorer) may indicate it's not a niche requirement.
