OK, so paste and match style looks to have been "fixed". But as I describe in the below thread, paste and match style should do what it says, not retain font and spacing from the source text if the source text happens to be a title or subtitle. If a user wants to retain the formatting, we already have a feature for that - Paste (CTRL+V).

Example: copying title, subtitle and author sections of following article and pasting via Paste and Match Style: https://www.theverge.com/2017/8/9/16114530/net-neutrality-crusade-against-verizon-alex-nguyen-fcc

Not only would I have to spend time cleaning this up, but I don't even know how to fix the line spacing in the subtitle - EN seems to think it's some giant font as indicated by the size of the cursor, but the editor shows it to be font size 8, so I have no idea how I'd fix the line spacing since it's not really a line spacing issue (even though it looks like one at initial glance); it's single line spacing of giant font that's not actually giant font.

Please, if you would like Paste and Match Style actually match the style of your existing note (for example, you're copy/pasting some reference article title into an existing note), make your voice heard:

When displaying PDF as an attachment, I can not any longer position it exactly where I want.  The problem stems from attachment having an invisible box around it with the empty space.  The box only becomes visible if I right-click on the PDF or try to drag it to the place I want it to be displayed at. When I try to cut and paste it, it is temporary displays where I want. However, if I switch to the different note and then go back to the note with the PDF attachment it will move up from the previous spot because of the white space. Below is an example of what I am talking about. This white space eats into the note display space.

The "Assign tags" window (Ctrl+Alt+T) no longer displays the whole tag names as of 6.7, no matter how big you make the window.

That 'empty space' thing around (apparently all) attachments is an annoyance.  I used to be able to get several attachments showing in one screen,  now they're spaced so far apart I can get 2-3 max. - Here's a quick example

Hello all, 

This is a business account issue that hasn't been resolved in the GA or this Beta.

Previously, when I was in my business notebook (alt-2) and created a note, the note would go to my default Business notebook. Now, there only seems to be one default notebook and it can't be set to a business folder. As someone who uses Evernote extensively for business and personal matters, it's so helpful to be able to quickly decide which side of the online brain a new idea/note is going towards. 

I will note that if I Alt-F1 to a notebook in my business account and create a new note, it will go to that notebook, along with the tags I might have also searched for.

Best,

M

Currently - Paste and Match style removes these - font, size, color, align, indent, trailing whitespace  - items taggered (in the HTML) as Header 1 and such are not removed, which messes with line spacing and such.  I shared your info with Dev and the PM

The bug that causes your cursor to jump to the first line of the note is back in this build. I just spent a few minutes typing a lot of data into a table cell and after a few minutes, I found my self on the first line of the note.

I just changed the subject (a task) of a note with no body.

I had another note open in another window, which is also a shortcut note.

the shortcut note subject got changed, not the original note I was in. I only noticed when my shortcut bar looked strange.

I know for a fact I was in the task note because I specifically looked at the body and it it was empty. I paused for a second to let it download (sync on demand enabled) until I realized it was just a subject with no note body.

Dang, it is just happen during regular typing or were arrows or key combos hit during content creation?  (tracking down which bug got back in, hence the question)

On the positive side, it matches the fat margins around the text now. :(

I was switching from italics to plain, so did CTRL-I some text CTRL-I more text - and the "more text" was at the top of the note.

Ok, Update from what I see it seems that it doesn't happen to all the notes. There are still some notes that are not affected.

Just to clarify on this to show I didn't inadvertently do this:

  1. Original note title I changed was "bookmark 76-78, in dax book"
  2. I changed it to "bookmark 76-78, 109-111 in dax book" by simply adding 109-111 in the middle. I did this in the EN main window, list view
  3. A totally different note (open in its own window) adopted the new note title - the entire thing. I never copied it to the clipboard, and didn't retype it.
  4. Original note retained the old "bookmark 76-78, in dax book" title.
  5. I know my typing took so I suspect this mixup happened on sync. I was editing both notes - the background note I was editing the body - some cell in a table.

Font size in the code block now seems to change at random. If I add a code block in 6.7 and return to the note after some time, it can be either bigger or smaller. It also seems to change based on if I view the note in the main window or in a single window.

Thanks for the report, we will investigate 

BTW - Is the font being changed from the default font?

Hi,
thanks gazumped for pointing me to this thread.

Unfortunately I have the very same issue.

In short: There is no way to paste text as actually plain text. And what's even worse: A pasted text with any format cannot be converted into "unformatted" at all.

Please see details (my ticket) too:
https://evernote.directly.com/p/evernote-how-to-paste-unformatted-text-3676309?r=3538833

It cannot be that I have to use a separate text editor as an intermediate step only to get rid of formatting!

Cheers

It's funny that this most-basic function has to be discussed at all :(

Evernote decided to 'improve' their product and got feedback from their users that this was not a good idea.  Not much discussion involved,  but feedback is sometimes definitely required to keep them on track!  ;)

I get updates from here first, but I recorded both links for the designers and such, so they can go read all the comments.

Great, thanks. I started the other thread so that this particular issue didn't get lost in general discussion of version releases, and also to raise awareness and solicit feedback from users who don't always keep EN updated to most recent beta or GA release, and would thus otherwise be unaware of the changes to this very basic feature.
