Hi, I have recently gotten an iPhone 6 Plus. This may be really easy to answer. When I use my Mac Evernote, the default font size is perfectly readable. On my new iPhone 6 Plus, the text is just approaching the point where I would like to increase the size visible on screen, but I don't want to increase the font size and have it larger on the Mac or any other screen I might read it on. Is there a simple way to do this? Pinch and zoom is no use, as you now have to scroll. I want to get larger text and automatically have it reflow. Any thoughts?
It's been like this for a long time, but it wasn't always. I've either had to destroy the formatting completely, put up with it and squint, or give up and forget about it unless I happen to think of it when I'm on my phone (which is not great for long articles). All of the work arounds destroy the text; Ctrl-+ squishes it all together, 'Simplify Formatting' turns it into an eye-boggling mess. It looks fantastic on a tablet, of course. I no longer have a tablet. I save articles to read later and most of the time I would be doing that is on a desktop, not crunching my neck down staring at my phone for more than a few minutes at a time. Is there anything we can do, to bring back webclipping to a usable state for desktop users? It wouldn't be so bad if I still had a tiny monitor, but Evernote itself is designed for widescreens these days as it is. Example: Web Page: Initial Webclip: Attempts to manually adjust text size after clipped via Ctrl-+ Giving in and using Simplify Formatting: (it doesn't look so bad here, but when looking at the bulk of any article like this it makes reading very frustrating, where as the formatting is great on mobile devices)
I use Evernote Premium on a Windows PC, in Google Chrome, on iPad and Android cellphone. Most often I use the client version on my Windows PC for its speed and search capabilities. My Evernote database contains thousands of web clips. In recent iterations of the software, web clips mostly display in tiny, really miniscule text size occupying no more than one-quarter of the width of my widescreen monitor. Adjusting text size within the note is not really useful, as I can't expand the screen width of the clip or adjust the leading between lines of type. If I try to size-up, I wind-up with equally illegible, overlapping type confined in the clip's frame, the width of which I cannot adjust. I use Windows Magnifier as a kludge, but it's a 'follow the cursor' tool that requires constant repositioning. I use Evernote a LOT. I don't like having to make a couple dozen screen moves with Windows Magnifier to read a single note, especially when I may want to consult 10 or 20 notes on one visit to the Windows client. Adobe Acrobat has a drop-down menu always visible on screen that adjusts display by percentage. Google Chrome has the same feature in its drop-down Settings menu. I realize that Acrobat is managing display within its own software and format rules. Evernote is displaying imported HTML clips as well as the PDF that Acrobat displays. If that's a problem for Evernote developers, have they explored the type of slider control that is often used to instantly adjust display of, for example, JPGs in photo editing software, resizing the entire graphic object? Often the most legible version of a web clip that I ever see is the CLEARLY version in my Google Chrome web browser--because CLEARLY was purpose-built to be a LEGIBILITY tool as well as an upgrade to Evernote's older web clipper. It uses the full width of the screen, which the desktop Evernote client emphatically does not. A fast and easy means to adjust text for legibility would be a MAJOR enhancement of Evernote, IMHO. I confess that I find it really annoying to see note after note defaulting to a display that leaves the righthand 3/4 of screen empty--and the web clip almost illegibly small. Many news media have used advances in HTML and content management systems to make their content MUCH easier to view in the last year, eg, Guardian UK, NYTimes. I realize desktop client software is a different animal than web software--but 'responsive design' UI/UX principles are in fact very similar in terms of using screen real estate well. Thanks for your consideration.
