Evernote for Mac 6.11 Beta 3 Released

Idea

Hi folks,

Today we're announcing Evernote for Mac, version 6.11 Beta 3! You can download it here.

This Beta puts on hold some of our work around tab support and business and personal separation. We're working through some UX changes to address feedback we received in Beta 1 and Beta 2, so those feature updates have been removed. In Beta 3 you'll find Mac Touch Bar integration and many fixes with taking notes:

New:
Touch Bar support for the latest MacBook Pros allows quick access to key navigation and note editing commands.

Screenshot of the Touch Bar - providing access to back/forwards, quick search, view options, filter options and New Note when navigating notes

Capture1.thumb.PNG.00edbe5fc024007e45ac0466e02a16d0.PNG

Fixed:
We've fixed several issues people were having with notes:
- Search terms weren’t highlighted in notes for some searches
- Clicking on an attachment sometimes caused the note to scroll up, making it hard to open attachments
- Shift + arrow up or down did not highlight if the line above or below was blank
- Shift + enter did not create a non-bulleted line in a bulleted list
- Couldn’t delete the leftmost column in a table if the top cell is formatted
- Line breaks were unexpectedly removed after syncing some notes originally created on iPhone
- Content copied from a PDF sometimes could not be pasted into a note
- Applying Simplify Formatting to clipped notes removed returns
- If the last item in a list was blank, it disappeared when users navigated away and then back to the note
- Couldn’t remove indents from text in some notes created in earlier versions of Evernote 
- In tables, if you triple clicked to select the content and then cut, you would be unable to focus on the cell
- If you added a new checklist item in the middle of an existing checklist, one character of a checklist item might be unexpectedly deleted

Thanks,

Chantal and the rest of the Mac team

These shift+enter's seem to be tricky. I notice that text in my previous notes that should be one line down and unbulleted end up on the same line as the bullet. I've included a screenshot comparing what the web client shows vs. the Mac client.

(Running beta 3, of course)

 

Quick edit: So, this is on all notes, even new ones. I've changed my screenshot to a test note.

 

To reproduce:

  • Create new note
  • Create a bulleted list
  • Enter some text
  • Shift+Enter
  • Enter some text
  • Looks good? Leave note and come back
  • Now it looks like my note below.

Bug Report: Width settings lost on existing tables in viewing

The screenshot is supposed to be a full width table
Instead, all the columns are reduced to minimum width
Seems to apply to all my notes

I imported from Note History to try and fixed this
The width looked fine in Note History but became compressed when imported.

Also getting the crash on launch here.

[EDIT] I don't get a crash on launch if I open Evernote in a new user account on my machine, so the problem is likely with database migration? The same thing happened in an earlier beta of this release.

Have to say that I feel similarly regarding the bullets/newline issue. I can't make any changes to my notes, otherwise the incorrect formatting sticks. I'm trying to make do with the desktop client for reading, and the web client for changes. It's not ideal.

This is a huge issue for those of us who use templates. Every single one of my simplify days templets is screwed up. You can resize them to look like they should BUT only the multicolumn tables (single column are still stuck). the weird part is if you look at the messed up tables in the web app they look normal.

Yes, the bug will only be saved if you make an edit o the note. We are fixing this and preventing it from happening in the first place.

Two issues:

1. I seem to have some business notebooks that appear as both personal and business notebooks (and some that don't) - see video

2. I can't always move notes from the default personal notebook to a business notebook - see video. Sometimes I can though. Don't see a pattern yet as to when I can and when I can't.

I have a video demoing the problem but it is too large to upload here (exceeds attachment limit). I submitted it to tech support but they told me to post it here...chicken and egg. Can you find the video in your tech support system? Ticket #2053575.  

Also, what are the best directions for downgrading from Beta to public version. I can't work well enough with all the bugs. Thanks.

This version is crashing on launch. Seems to be related to AppleScript, as I have scripts that run on launch.

My process is to completely remove  Evernote; app, database ....
- The app AppCleaner is recommended 

Reinstall the app and let the database be rebuilt from the servers

I use to add pictures by drag to Evernote icon on the dock.

If I do this, Evernote makes new note windows, and I can edit their name or contents without search another place.

But nowadays, if I drag one picture, a new window pop up. But if I drag pictures to Evernote icon on the dock, notebooks are added basic notebook without showing new note windows. So I should rename files before add or must search each of notes.

It's very annoying for me.

I hope you guys roll back the previous function.

Fixed:
. . .
- Applying Simplify Formatting to clipped notes removed returns

Thanks for this, but the fix doesn't seem to work universally. For notes clipped from the Guardian website, for example, the problem still exists. For notes clipped from the New York Times, on the other hand, the command works as before (6.9.2). 

Another bug reported way back (and should be easy to fix) is still here:

  • Recent Evernote for Mac betas (starting from 6.10.x) have removed the system-wide default keyboard shortcut for the "Fonts" dialog (%T).

Yes, I know I can fix this myself. But the removal doesn't make sense since you're not assigning the shortcut to something else. (Nor should it be reassigned since it's used the same way across different applications.)

Since I updated to version 6.11 beta 3, the Evernote clipper for Postbox on my Mac (running OS X 10.11.6) clips HTML email to a very narrow column. In previous versions of Evernote, the note would look almost identical to the original email. 

I've attached a PDF with screenshots of the email and the clipped note, which shows the big difference between the two. Is this something that might be fixed in an upcoming update, or will the developers of the Postbox add-on have to address it?

The update is once again broken using the Alfred workflow which uses Applescript. As noted before this was broken on the previous beta and is a popular way many interact with Evernote.

As with others, I had local notebooks updated into the cloud, which is frankly pathetic even for a beta release. 

As a many year premium customer it feels like your development team is getting worse and worse. I used to love Evernote and have recommended it to many others, I don't feel this way any longer.

I'm actually having a similar problem with Airmail 3. With the added bonus that every time I send something from Airmail 3 to EN (using the Airmail 3 Send to -> Save to Evernote function) EN crashes, but the scrunched note is there when I restart EN.

Beta 4 should address this, the clean up running in the background got a bit over zealous in removing blank lines.

Hi Evernote team,

I've been an auto-Beta user for some time but had to roll back to stable version due to tables not working at all. Any previously created table in notes shows up very narrow without ability to resize or delete without right-click, delete. Thanks. :)

When did you update Evernote?

Now they offer official version 6.11.

If you recently update, maybe it is not a beta version.

I'm using v6.11 and am not experiencing your table display problem
There was a problem with beta 3, but it was fixed in later releases

To revert to a previous version, delete the database copy on your Mac and let it be rebuilt from the servers

thanks for the reply. I don't what you mean by “delete the database”. Where/how should I do it? I am afraid I would delete and lose my data.

The app AppCleaner will handle the database delete

If your data has been synced to the servers, you will not lose data during the rebuild

Background:

The database copy on your Mac has been upgraded to v6.11

This is why you can't  revert your software to a previous program version

Sorry, but it is still not clear what the steps are. All my notes are synced with Evernote server. Should I simply uninstall Evernote in my laptop, and then install it again? You wrote delete, which I interpret as manually deleting each all notes from my laptop.

You have a copy of your database on your Mac.  It's been upgraded to v6.11 and can't be  used with previous software versions

If you're reverting the program version, the database version also has to be reverted

Install AppCleaner.  Run it and completely delete Evernote from your Mac

Install Evernote and the database will be rebuilt from the servers

Please note: This may not be necessary.  Your table display problem was fixed with the latest version of 6.11 (post beta)
