When I cut and paste from a news article, I use the "Paste and Match Style" option - but as of the last release or two - that option still brings over hyperlinks. It didn't used to. Need an option for pasting without hyperlinks, please!
I have an Evernote note on an iPhone containing a line which looks like this: (Base-60) Sexagesimal: 0B6 11:06 Whenever I try to advance the cursor (either using a bluetooth keyboard or the iPhone touch-screen) character-by-character down that line, to the point where the cursor reaches just beyond (to the right of) the '6' in '0B6' - then the very next character advance, and Pow! - you're back at the 0 character position at the beginning of that same line. If you just hold down the cursor-right key (on the bluetooth keyboard), then the cursor will keep moving along the line (to the end of 0B6) - jumping back to the beginning of the line - moving along that same line again to the same point, etc. - forever. If, on the other hand, I start at the end of the line, and move the cursor backwards (using either input method) towards the beginning of the line, then the moment the cursor moves from the second '1' of the '11' left towards the first '1' - and Pow! you're at the very beginning of the line (where the cursor will just stick if you hold down the cursor-left key). As a result, it's basically impossible to set the cursor down between the '6' in '0B6' and the second '1' in '11' within the note in question. If one copies the note's contents into a new note, then the error is preserved in the new note. If one switches to plain-text mode, the error is also preserved. If one manages to highlight and copy the entire line (by, e.g., starting on the line below and hitting shift-cursor-up), and then pastes only that line into a new note - then after the note is saved and you go back into it, the error is NOT preserved. If one copies the Evernote note's contents into a new iOS Notes-app note, then copies the contents back into a new Evernote note, the error is NOT preserved. I'd attach the Evernote note in question, but I don't see quite how to do that here.... (It's not a file I can select with the file manager.) (I have to say that it really strikes me as unacceptable that one can't clear out these kind of buggy internal representation issues with regard to particular notes by simply invoking "Simplify formatting" or "Make plain text." What are those features for if not to fix just this kind of thing?) (FYI, I'm using an iPhone 6S+ 64GB running iOS 9.3.4 along with the latest Evernote app v. 7.15.)
Hi all, I often write my notes in a plain-text editor (TextEdit, Notepad++, TextWrangler, MS Notepad...) before firing up Evernote and pasting the whole thing. I have 2 problems with keeping the format: 1) the whitespace is not preserved! That's bad across the board, but especially for the space I used for indentation... 2) I set my font to monospace, then as soon as I press enter or edit something inside evernote, the format reverts to the default font (I'm aware I can change that default font, although I haven't done it yet, but I'm talking about preservation of the font selected. I know some desktop text editors have this problem as well, but mostly at the end of the text, not in the middle like this...) So, due to these problems, after copy-pasting, and a bit of editing, I have to: select everything and re-apply the (monospace) fontmanually hunt for collapsed spacing and fix itif I edit something, again select-all and re-apply the font, etc...It's quite some trouble for a bit of plaintext...
