Cursor jumps back to home position in scanned card notes

Recommended Posts

Hi.

I'm running Evernote version 6.7.5.5825 Windows 10 Home on a Dell laptop.

The problem seems to only occur when I am working in the Notes section of a scanned business card.  As I'm typing, and especially if I pause briefly, the cursor jumps back to the top-left corner of the Notes field.  In this case that would be just before the word "Hi".  I usually do this in the panel view mode (not a separate window), but I have tried opening the card in its own window and still have the same problem.

I have not found a work around for this.  I suppose I could type the note in another program, then cut & paste it into Evernote, but that seems silly.

That sounds like a version of this known issue:

(See also here.) The solution is to go to Tools > Options > Note and uncheck "Set new note focus to title." Hope that will work for you.

Thank you, Dave.  I did see that thread in doing my research before posting.  It has not helped.

One thing that came out of that thread, is when this happened, the blue upload arrow appears in the top-right of the note.  So, I suspect everytime it uploads my changes (even though I'm not finished), it resets the cursor.  So I thought turning OFF the "Enable instant sync" in the "Sychronization" section of the Options might help.  It did not, but maybe that will spur someone else to think of a better way...

@rovengineer Thanks for the report. This separate issue is isolated to business card notes, and is scheduled to be fixed in the Evernote for Windows Desktop version 6.8 GA. Please let us know if the issue continues after installing the 6.8 GA.  I'll update here once it's out.  Thanks.

I have upgraded to 6.8.7.6387 (306387) Public (CE Build ce-1.36.3494)
Now I apparently cannot edit business cards, nor add notes at all.
I suppose this fixed the problem, but not in a helpful way. :-(

Please let me know if there is any way to edit the cards that is not obvious to me.

Thank you
