  1. I'm not sure if this is new in 6.8, but when I am trying to create a note with mutliple horizontal rules, it isn't working well for me. The screen shot is adding some text, creating a horizontal rule, adding some more text, and now every "horizontal rule" I try to create just creates a blank line. I've tried highlighting the full note and setting the colour to black. Strange. If have nothing in the note, every other time I hit the horizontal rule button it creates a horizontal line, or a blank line. But as soon as I start mixing in text, I can't create that second line (consistently). Copying and pasting those top three lines (the text, horizontal line, and text) added text, blank line, text, followed by 5 horizontal rules! Select all, copy, go to the end of the note, paste... the lines of text are pasted, the first line disappears, the missing line between the last two tests reappears, and the 5 extra horizontal lines are not pasted on the end (but there are blank lines there) If I type blank lines at the end, then the horizontal rules start randomly appearing!?
  2. Evernote Team, why is the formatting of my note information so amazingly terrible whenever I copy it into another application; like Outlook or Word? Isn't this considered a use case for your product? I am a huge fan of Evernote in general. I want to use it even more than I do, but this is a HUGE problem, Along with how often the formatting within a noted gets messed up when editing. These keep Evernote from being my go to tool for collecting and sharing information. They are the primary reasons I haven't upgrade to a premium tier - if I can't use the information in my notes seamlessly across my workflow the hassle of cleaning up the formatting outweighs the benefit of trusting Evernote. I know there are substantial technical challenges to handling formatting cleanly across multiple platforms. But isn't this considered core functionality? It should be.

    Stop the jumping around

    I am very frustrated by the way EN text jumps around as I edit notes. I appreciate that this has something to do with keeping notes sync'd, which is good, but I find myself slowed down and frustrated when it happens because every time it happens, and it happens every few seconds, I lose my place and have to stop to find it again.

    Simultaneous Note Editing

    Really frustrates the impossibility of editing notes at the same time with better sync and without "Conflict Changes". All the competitors have realized this opportunity the long time ago.
  5. I use Penultimate on the iPad with the Apple Pencil. It syncs with the Evernote service and the iOS app just fine, but of course in the main Evernote app, the notes are read-only. That's OK, but why on earth can't that 'read only' message include a link using a standard URL scheme that takes me back to that particular note in Penultimate? "Click here to edit this note in Penultimate." Seems like only a few hours of coding to me, unless I'm missing something.

    Make a note editable straight after opening rather than having to use the 'pen' button
  7. Several ongoing editing bugs stem from one more fundamental problem I believe. Each has been discussed separately, but never fully resolved, so I'm making one post to draw attention to the bigger problem. Here are a few examples I've experienced for years: The "Quantum cursor" - cursor location after a paste is randomly above or below the inserted content Bullet list start/stop - item in a bullet list may include 0, 1 or 2 LF, sometimes you can end a list with 2 CR, sometimes it just keeps making more bullets Paste w/o formatting, sometimes you get the formatting of the line above, sometimes below removing formatting - sometimes it's impossible to remove formatting of a section of text, it's like tar stuck to your cursor, and every line it touches gets infected by it I've come to accept Evernote's core line editor is just 'quirky'. Apparently, so have others, since no one's screaming about it, and as basic as it is, release after release it just NEVER gets fixed. My Theory: The core line editor functionality isn't based on a solid, adequately formalized and characterized design. It was probably hacked as one of the first bits of code at the very beginning and it is long overdue refactoring. Normal issue when developing a complex codebase. e.g. Paste. Insert XYZ into the sequence of characters ABC\rDEF<cursor>GHI\n at the cursor. do you get ABC\rDEFXYZ<cursor>GHI\n or ABC\rDEF<cursor>XYZGHI\n. This is a problem addressed since the very earliest line editors from IBM ed, Edlin, Wordstar, WordPerfect, vi, Emacs, and implemented in the editor used by this very forum. The other issues listed, and several more not listed, suffer from the same lack of formal definition. Perhaps, when moving the cursor, we are inadvertently placing it before or after hidden format markers, and sometimes invalid or inadequately terminated formatting, leaving dangling bits: <b>this text is bold \r is this text still bold? If this is an accurate conclusion what the editor needs is a fomal definition: for all editing function: character entry, cut, copy, paste, delete, (including the more complex ones: image paste, table paste, Web clipping, etc.) cursor location, rules for CR and LF, formatting start/stop, does the end of the line include or not include the CF (e.g. in MSWord moving cursor to left margin guarantees you're selecting the entire line including LF or CR) Proper Bracket Matching on formatting markers. e.g. HTML editor or Web browser parses nested formatting: <li><b>text</b></li>. A helpful workaround would be "View Formatting" that exposed the underlying formatting structure so we could delete extraneous LF, CR, or unterminated formatting.
  8. I have Evernote Premium. Sometimes I hit the send button and realize after the fact that my work chat has mistakes in it. I'd love to see a feature where we could edit it. The ability to archive work chats would be wonderful, too. Thanks for any consideration!

    Picture editing

    Hi It would be nice to be able to change the size of the picture in the notes. And also being able to move the picture to the side or up in the corner somewhere
  10. Running EN 4.5.0.5229 on Windows 7. In the past, Ctrl+space used to remove formatting from the selected area. That gave me a choice to clean up what I wanted, including the whole doc by first selecting it all using Ctrl+a. Now all it does is to bring the font size back to the default, or at least that's all I see it doing. It leaves the different fonts, bold, italics, etc. intact. Just brings them back to font size 10 in my case. Seems to me that's wrong behaviour. Any possibility to make it work like before?
  11. I don't know how to end writing / editing notes in the Evernote App without leaving the note. I want to edit it and then continue reading it! I wished there was a button for that. In Apple's "Notes" for example you can click "Done". Or sometimes there is a keyboard symbol in the app and when you press it, the keyboard vanishes and you can continue reading / scrolling down your notes.
  12. We use Evernote Premium as a team at work. We have lots of meetings and love using it to enter our topics and minutes. We need to be able to work on and edit those notes simultaneously during our meetings. Obviously that does not work in Evernote without coming up with conflicting changes. We were using Live Minutes, but now that no longer automatically syncs with Evernote. Is there another app we could be using or is there any future plan to make simultanteous editing a part of Evernote? Thank you so much for your help!

    Editing note error

    I've made the proper topic in the Spanish section. I hope in this forum I will get more atention. I can't get into any note. I tried everything. Erased cache, data, reinstalled rom, app, logged out, reset the phone, everything! But I still can log in Windows, Evernote Web and other phones. Btw, Android nor Evernote is updating or anything.

    request: "typewriter mode"

    I can't find an option to avoid this really annoying thing Evernote does (or does not). When I start writing and I'm coming close to the edge of the window it get's really annoying that the line doesn't move up to the center or stay at the center. My solution now is to paste some "returns" in every note so I can keep the line in the middle of the window but that's really annoying. There is another app called "Ulysses" which includes an "typewriter note" and does handle that issue quite well. Since this makes note-taking much easier and enjoyable, I'd love to see this function in Evernote.
  15. Just suddenly started having problems in the last couple of weeks very similar to this post: I am working in notes with big lists and other plain text content. I might copy something and it pastes back as nothing or just a new line, or just part of the whole piece I copied. I press fn+delete and instead of forward deleting as typical mac behavior it just back spaces. Numbered lists of notes do not join. Previously if you had two lists, one right after the other, you could "join" them by deleting the empty space between and the numbers on the second list would then cary on where the first list left off. This is not working anymore. Sometimes after deleting a selection or line, or after cutting it, the cursor jumps to the bottom or top of the page or somewhere random. Sometimes it jumps OUTSIDE the editing area to the left side of the padding of the white editing area background. Undo and redo are acting weird as well. Sometimes not doing anything at all, sometimes not jumping the screen to the cursor when you do ctrl-z. It started randomly, I hadn't even updated evernote so it wasn't caused by an update I don't think. I just updated to most recent to see if that would fix it but it didn't. Anyone experiencing similar issues?
  16. I have Evernote installed both on my PC to take notes on the side and on my smartphone to have quick access to them. I am beginning to use it for course notes too. A problem I have encountered is that the text formatting options do NOT include subscript and superscript which makes it cumbersome for taking engineering or mathematical notes.
  17. Greetings from an Evernote 7.9.3 Android user! Keyboard: Google Keyboard / Fleksy Keyboard, Current Device: Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 (Android 5.1), ex Evernote-device: Samsung Note 3 neo A humble request to EN team go through issues (verified on both of my devices) and do the needful : *** While using Backspace on words in middle of the line, newly added checkbox (in the case when checkbox is auto-added due to newline) gets deleted. *** Backspacing sometimes deletes words randomly on the same line, and appends junk text (eg. Line 1 has 5 words. I attempt to erase word 5 and word 4 gets deleted, and/or some extra characters get appended after deleting the word) (demoed in video I've shared) ---- EDIT: Point 1 & 2 got some problem with the auto-correct feature of the keyboards. Scroll LAG even on High-end devices (Snapdragon 650, 3GB RAM); this happens in case of multiple 1 or 1.5MB+ sized images in that note. Copy-paste of text from a web-article retains Font size and color of the source text . In this case, newlines get randomly inserted between lines in that note (please refer to screenshot, the empty lines were added automatically every timed I edited the note) (demo-ed in video I've shared). *** Cursor, then itself freezes at times you try to edit this newly copied internet text. ----- EDIT: These notes then take forever to open #'Opening note'. Sometimes it takes 2 attempts to check a checkbox. slow to load long (offline) image notes. Clipping of Full web page is slow & fails sometimes (doesn't even notify if it's not clipped since a long time). If some big note doesn't get sync'd due to network failure, it mostly won't get sync'd even on good net connection later. (occasional). Web-Clipping is still awful. Eg: webpage components overlap, some junk text is only what gets clipped, zoomed text gets saved that ain't scroll-able/resizable. Widget, doesn't show all of the shortcuts on the 1st time after it reloads. It needs a re-scroll to load all (I have 20+ shortcuts). Video links for demo of bugs from point 1,2 and 4 (from my google-drive):- Video 1(link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3kDYn-4wtG9d3oyV2NfbzNNTkU/view?usp=sharing), you can see < 1>how text gets randomly deleted on the same line as the cursor <2>Checkbox gets deleted even though the cursor is away <3>Text of two different checkboxes mix etc. Video 2(link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3kDYn-4wtG9Q2psOU1NaTZ1RjQ/view?usp=sharing), you can see newline inserted without intent ! SUGGESTIONS: Please enable note-sharing externally (it hurts). UX. Badly needed! It takes almost 2X efforts, as compared to traditional apps, for making any note-changes. Improve clipping. Note-editor screen is too cluttered for small-screen phones. Let Handwriting and text be mixed in order of their addition, instead of all Handwriting pages being forced together. A 'save' option on the 'Discard changes' dialog or a quicker way to save and exit the edit mode, since the top-left and top-right Save Buttons aren't easily accessible on phablets, using one hand. Thanks, The curious EN Fan
  18. I just installed the latest Evernote update a few minutes ago on my Mac Powerbook. Ever since, the typing function is completely glitchy. If I'm typing a new sentence, everything is fine. It's when I have to edit the sentence that things go wrong. I click my mouse cursor somewhere in a word, and the editing does not happen at the point—it skips forward or backward a few letters, and completely throws off all the letters. Actually, I'm noticing that it's happening RIGHT NOW IN THIS TEXT BOX as I try to contribute to the feed. What the heck is up, Evernote? I just want to be able to backspace, type, and click accurately. Example: Let me attempt to demonstrate. The sentence below SHOULD say "Hello, I am trying to type in Evernote." I'm going to click behind the word "type" so theoretically, I should be editing it to say "Hello, I am trying to type a page in Evernote." Hello, I am trying to type i a page n Evernote. >> SEE HOW WEIRD THAT IS???? Imagine this happening ALL THE TIME. Is there a solution for this?
  19. The editing of notes needs to improve when interacting with a pointing device (mouse). When editing a note, I will click on a different location (line) in the same note, the cursor is moved to the location, and I start typing, only to find out that the text is being inserted at the last location. So the focus within the note is not changing when I single click on another line. The workaround is to click twice! This behavior is annoying, and should be changed. I "think" Evernote did not use to behave this way, so I thought it was a "bug" that would get noticed and corrected, but several updates later the behavior remains. If you're going to update the cursor position, the focus within the note needs to change, otherwise the feedback you are giving to the user is misleading. Bad UI!
  20. Hi all, We released Evernote for iOS 7.16 earlier today. This release includes a re-write of the note editor, the ability to add attachments with the iOS Document Picker, and annotation improvements. Notable fixes and improvements: New note editor with consistent formatting across clients The iOS note editor has been completely rewritten - everything should work the same, but better This initial release of the new editor was focused on feature parity with the old iOS note editor - this lays the groundwork for many improvements coming in future iOS releases Checkboxes look a little more modern Copy and past work better in edit and view modes Swiping the keyboard down when editing a note now closes the keyboard and returns to view mode New iOS Document Picker When editing a note, you can now tap the paper clip icon in the formatting bar to launch the iOS Document Picker You can then select a source location, i.e. iCloud Drive, Google Drive, Dropbox, etc., based on the iOS apps you have installed with document picker extensions Select from the list of locations, and then select the file you would like to attach – a copy of that file will be added to your note Note: the camera icon in the formatting bar will now launch a prompt to take a photo (or scan) or open your photo library to add images Additional improvements Improved PDF annotation, especially when using the Apple Pencil Reduced minimum rectangle size for annotation Fixed issue where selection tool broke highlighting ink in sketches Improved sync performance Fixed several crashes You can download the Evernote for iOS app from the App Store. As always, please let us know what you think. Cheers!
  21. Does anyone else feel like the formatting, tables specifically, has not gotten any better? I do a lot of tables and I'm constantly have to work get data into the tables and I spend a lot of time trying to format them. Trying Onenote and so far I'm finding it has much much better text editing and table features. I just hating going to Microsoft for any app other than Word and Excel, because I know they will ***** it up in the future (if they haven't already). Thoughts? NOTE TO EVERNOTE TEAM: FIX TABLES!

  23. I might be insane but it appears for the app there is no functionality to edit a note. This is insane, right?!?! And I don't mean the location or title, but the actual note. I want to add new images to an old note (and maybe descriptive text) and there is no "pencil" edit icon and conveniently the Evernote support answer on creating and editing notes has absolutely nothing on EDITING. Nothing even comes up remotely relevant when searching for editing notes. Absurd! I used Evernote Food for years and got dumped back into Evernote and I'm officially hating the app more than life right now. If editing exists it is SO incredibly not intuitive.
  24. I have some "live" documents (pdf, word docs, etc) which I would like to be searchable through evernote on all my devices. When I modify these docs I would like Evernote to pick up the changes - it doesn't have to be quick or immediate as long as it's automated and it doesn't result in new notes. For example, when i append pages to MyDoc.pdf on my pc I would like the associated note in Evernote to eventually notice and for the new version of MyDoc.pdf to be visible there. What is the best way to accomplish this?
  25. Hi, Want to create a course booklet as a 'notebook' with lecture slides etc for the cancer charity I work for. Can I create a notebook that people can take notes on without it affecting the original shared notebook but rather just have notes on their own personal version? Could this perhaps be done by saving the workbook by each individual? Thanks in advance for your help Rafi
