Pasting raw text removes empty lines???

Idea

I just tried pasting some raw text from Notepad and Evernote inexplicably removed all the blank lines, squashing the entire block...

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Type a line of text, hit enter twice, type a second line of text
  2. Select All Copy
  3. Paste into Evernote (Normal Paste or Paste and Match Style both reproduce the issue)
  4. Evernote removes the blank line between Line One and Line Three.

Current Version: 6.7.5.5825 (305825)

 

This does not occur in v6.4.2.3788 (303788)

I believe this is the same issue.
Bad news. For 6.8.1 beta, it's still there. :angry:

It's been reported already. Several times.

In that case here's hoping that it gets the attention it needs and gets fixed soon, because right now it basically makes pasting in content from external sources (particularly from IDEs) borderline useless.

New to this discussion forum, but I tend to agree with the above.... pasting from external sources is almost completely useless with this issue. Is there a more official issue reporting system that might get this more visibility?

BTW if anyone is looking for a work-around, and using notepad++, it actually DOES work correctly with unix (LF) line delimiters!

Does anyone know if this issue with blank lines was every resolved? I use Version 6.5.4.4720 since I'm too afraid to update due to too many bugs.

"I don't see this problem in v. 6.13...": 

Oups - I'm running the same version - and I can see the problem. Even when pasting "normal" (formatted) text (i.e. source code from an IDE), blank lines will be removed. Pasting into a code block doesn't help. :-(
