Evernote for Windows 6.8 Beta 4 Released

Idea

Hi folks - 

We're excited to announce Windows 6.8 Beta 4. You can install it here or by checking for updates. Fixes in this beta include:

  • A fix for an issue where recording audio was not saved when switching notes
  • A fix for an issue preventing clipping of a screenshot unless a notebook is selected in the left panel 
  • A fix for an intermittent issue when drag and drop of an image into a note resizes the image to take up the entire width and height of the note space. 
  • A fix for an issue with Find and Replace bar can be duplicated in the note 
  • A fix for an issue where the app crashes when a user navigates to the upgrade screen 
  • A fix for an issue where editing encrypted text and then navigating back and forth between notes quickly loses those edits.
  • A fix for an issue where local links no longer work 
  • A fix for an issue where encrypting text using Ctrl+Shift+x no longer works 
  • A fix for an issue where file attachments in a table go in a wrong cell
  • A fix for an intermittent issue where the Windows app crashes immediately after opening note

We also made a small tweak to the sidebar background color, to something that's a bit more neutral to better complement some of the other colors we use in our color palette.  Let us know what you think and if you have any questions on the changes.

Thanks,

Chantal and the rest of the Windows team.

---------------------------------------

Release Notes for Windows version 6.8

Note: Version 6.8 is supported in OS versions Windows 7 and up.

Improved

We've made a number of changes to how a note is displayed. Some of the key changes include:

  • Better Print results for notes including highlighting, italics and underline and the ability to print to PDF
  • If you have a touch monitor, you can now pan notes with the swipe of a finger
  • More quickly start a bulleted list using a hyphen. In addition to using the still supported '*'+space shortcut, you can now also use '-'+space shortcut

Fixed

This release has many bug fixes. Some notable fixes include

  • A fix where words selected in a note using touch caused the application to crash
  • A fix where users were unable to record audio
  • A fix where attachments dropped in notes received a temporary filename
  • A fix where replace in note (Ctrl+H) wasn't replacing text
  • A fix where a debug port was inadvertently left active

With release 6.8.4.6134 (306134)  I have just downloaded and find that it is no longer possible to drag a pdf file to another note or the desktop or to another folder etc.  Can we have that facility back pretty soon please.  I am assuming that the facility has not been withdrawn on purpose; if it has then could I have an explanation please because I find it very useful.

And I've also just noticed that I can't open a pdf in my pdf reader and editing software (PDF-Exchange Editor)

I want to know the same thing. Its an important time saving feature that really need to be improved not removed. Please if you have removed it, fix it.

No response from EN if they are going to add them to the "Chrome PDF interface" that is now in play.  Productivity PITA for sure.

Yeah, the more I use it, the more I hate having the Chrome PDF reader in Evernote. I get that it brings a few benefits, but its pains way outweigh them. It's completely thrown a wrench in how I use Evernote, to the extent that I don't know that there's a use for having my PDFs in it at all at this point. The amount of work I'm having to do to make up for this change is way more than the work it would take to just store them elsewhere. Which sucks, because I love having my PDFs searchable. But if it's going to be as big of a pain in the bum to move PDFs out of Evernote as it is right now, I'm going to have to make some hard choices.

Besides the fact that I can't seem to drag anything from Evernote into other applications, including images. Even right click>copy, then paste doesn't work. **gnashes teeth**

It seems that I am unable to use the numbered list format inside the code block to represent line numbers in Beta 4. Even switching between notes, as I was able to do in Beta 3, does not work anymore. If I apply numbered list to the pasted source code first, I then cannot use code block format.

The intended behavior of code block is to only allow formatted text and rich links. In previous versions of the app you may have been able to place other items into code block, but that was not the intended behavior.

Going forward these items will not be able to be placed into code block:

  1. Lists
  2. Todos / checkboxes
  3. Horizontal rules
  4. Tables
  5. Attachments
  6. Images
  7. Encryption blocks
  8. Additional code blocks within a code block

Turns out, all drag and drop from EN to other stuff isn't working for me. I took a screenshot with Evernote and then tried to drag it to both a Trello card - didn't work. Then I tried to upload it to a post in this forum. Completely not recognized as an image. Cloudup doesn't recognize it as anything, either.

Losing all drag-and-drop functionality is horrendously frustrating. Can anyone else duplicate this problem? If so, can we get a fix pushed asap? Yikes.

EDIT: Right click, then copy and paste still works fine. So it's not quite the emergency. But still.

Not sure when this happened, and maybe it has been reported.  I remember being able to drag images and documents from EN to other applications.  Now one has to drag to the desktop and then drag to the target application.  Am I remembering wrong or is this a new(er) behavior?

I am consistently getting crashes when searching for a note then opening it.

  1. Go to the Notebooks icon so all notes are visible.
  2. Type in 3 tags and two key words
  3. 3 notes are found. OPen the one I want.
  4. Header is fine, but body is blank. The body is there in body window of LIst View, but empty when I open the note in its own window.
  5. Close the window. (as if to try again)
  6. Evernote vanishes.

There is nothing in the CRASHES folder, but the app log has this kind of thing in it. You can see where it crashed and started over on a new launch.

I can go directly to the notebook it is in, search there with no tags, and open the note fine.

Even after opening the note this way, then going back and repeating steps above, it locks up, but in step 4 it shows the body. When I close it, Evernote freezes with "not responding" and never comes back. Oh, wait. It just crashed and vanished on its own. Didn't have to kill it.

I am attaching the enex for the note too in case you think that has something to do with it.

BTW, I use this note all of the time, and generally search the same way. Worked fine before this beta.

The underline for search terms is broken. (same note as above) - the search term was:

refresh date

this is what the UI shows

 Thanks for the report. I'm trying to reproduce on my end with the .enex, but can't. What's your note list set to? Snippet, Top List, Side List, etc. Does the crash continue after selecting File > Exit  and reopening the app? 

Left Panel, Note List, and Note Panel are checked in view, so upper right is note list, and lower right is the note body.

There is no "File Exit" - either the app crashes on its own, or hangs indefinitely until I kill it via Task Manager. It never recovers in that session.

ANd the note is in a notebook that is in a stack. Finding the note in the notebook doesn't crash. Seems to only crash when I am in the "Notebook" icon showing all 22,000+ notes.

EDIT: Also crashes when in the stack and not the notebook.

If I search for:

tag:excel refresh date

it doesn't crash. It is like it requires all 3 tags to be used.

Looks like the problems of dragging attachments into notes from Outlook still remain in this new beta release, hopefully to be fixed soon! I'm staying at 6.7.5.

Thanks for mentioning - something we're prioritizing for our next Beta.

FYI, the light color is different when the left panel is closed or opened, white vs light gray.  I typically have the left panel closed so I really didn't notice until now.  I'd opt for the white if I had a vote.  ;)

It doesn't seem to me that search filters should affect new notes, but it does. I have a saved search and I've clicked on it, which is basically:

Quote

notebook:"@Pending Actions" tag:@home tag:#bills -tag:"7-Scheduled"

So I am paying bills, and when I go to download bills/statments as PDF files, I am saving them from Chrome into my Evernote Import Folder.

The problem is they are all imported with @home and #bills tags. This is not correct.

If I click on NEW NOTE while in this search, the note is created with @home and #bills tags, and I. CANNOT. DELETE. THE. TAGS. from the note. Clicking the little x does nothing.

This has been broken for a few builds. Can someone look at the logic that is going on? 

  • I can understand New Note working the way it does, except I should be able to delete the tags.
  • I cannot understand how importing files, which can be 100% unrelated to my current project, gets tagged based on a search that is set.

I tried this and it is not happening to me.  But I do not use tags or notebook names with symbols other than -  .   I then created notebook "@goofy", and created 2 notes in that notebook with tags @donald and @minnie.  Saved a search notebook:@goofy, tag:@donald, then ran that, then new note, and the tag is applied.  So I can repro with the @ symbol but not without it (didn't test#).

Do I really need to fully uninstall to be able to upgrade?

Not typically, no. But from my understanding of the issue I think it's necessary in this case. Please let us know if you're unable to update to 6.8.4 after uninstalling 6.7.2 from the control panel, then installing it from the link.

Thanks for the report. I've added this issue to the backlog. Does the same issue occur if you right-click the PDF, select "View as an attachment"? 

That technically works for now as a workaround, but is a pain as I'm scanning in 20-30 PDFs which then have to be converted to attachments before dropping into Trello cards. And then I have to uncheck that setting once done so I can read the PDF in Evernote. Adds in a bunch of clicks, but it does allow me to drag and drop again.

EDIT: I've found at least one PDF now where this does not work. I have no way of moving this PDF out of EN directly into another application. I have to download it and then re-upload it.

EDIT 2: None work now. Sigh.

I use Adobe and there is no button in Adobe to drag the current PDF to another app.  With the new Chome PDF viewer you have to click the Download arrow, save to the desktop or wherever, drag to the target app, delete the PDF from the desktop or wherever.  Before you just pressed the icon in the old PDF viewer and dragged to the target app.  A whole lot more efficient.

Also with the old viewer there was an icon to open the PDF in your viewer of choice.  More efficient than right click in the PDF and select open.   Maybe that could be reviewed for a return as well.  :)

Austin, (don't mean to sound snarky here though I suppose it does, apologies for that) is anyone on the EN design team thinking about use cases other than note taking when these changes are developed?  Or a fairer question, what generic use cases are considered in the process?  Just wondering what the offsets are for changes that make folks less productive.  Scrolling PDFs are nice, but you still need a PDF editor to do anything with the PDF, which is now a little harder.  :(

My version is "6.8.4.6134 (306134) Prerelease (CE Build ce-1.30.2933)" (Windows Desktop version on Windows 10 Ver 1703).

I defined this search "any: updated:day created:day"

If I click on this search many time, in sequence, I obtain two different result sets!!! One with 3 notes, one with 10 notes. There is not logic in this behaviour!!!

Yeah, I see the same thing, weird.  I was able to get consistency by putting created:day updated:day in the search bar and toggling the All/Any drop down.  However, after I saved the search it performs in error.  Definitely a bug.

I am currently running this beta on Windows 10, 64 bit.

I am experiencing the program is slow, lagging and not responsive.  I understand this is a beta, however, there is something wrong with the overall performance.  

Is there a timeline for the release version.

Two things - I wonder if some of the slowness that people keep reporting (and I have experienced) comes from the tweaks that MS keeps making to Windows 10 - EN seems to run fine for a while, then there is an update, and EN slows down?

For the timeline, you might as well stand outside and shout into a hurricane force wind - you will not get a timeline for any release/update from EN. It's just something they don't do. No, I don't work for EN - I have just seen that sentence repeated so many times. Actually, I don't work for anyone at the moment!

Hi
Just updated to the latest beta (6.8.4.6134 (306134) Prerelease (CE Build ce-1.30.2933)).
When trying to drag files from Outlook (attachment in an email) into an Evernote note, I get the "forbidden" cursor.
If I drop the file in the note-list, a new note is created with the attachment inside.
Dragging from my desktop or file browser (I use Directory Opus), everything works OK and the file is attached to the note.

Any reason why you changed the color of the left panel in the dark theme? I definitely prefered the dark navy blue to the new bland greyish color..

Sort of a head scratchier and begs the question, with everything else going on why a "subtle" change to the UI?  Weird.

Good callout - I've added to the the list of the changes in the post description. We're doing this to align our color usage across platforms. Expect to see this change make its way across desktop platforms. In terms of how it was selected, we were looking for a color that would complement the other colors we use, including our green. Expect to start seeing more use of that accent color in parts of our UI as we continue doing improvements. A good example of this is the new column/row button in the editor.

Same bug as before in the saved searches:

 

In the German version the search operator "any" is changed to "Alle" (all of).

 

The same search works in the web client, not in the windows client. Already subject of a separat topic resp. referred to in the topic Beta 3.

Would it be possible to have additional color options for the the left panel color rather than just the current light and dark theme?

I personally think you should mainly focus on what background color works with white text, and not what complements Evernote-green. A more greyish background color makes the white text less visible. Since there is no scaling option in Evernote, every change for the worse affects work on HDPI monitors. I also think that the previous dark navy color complemented Evernote-green well, as well as the blue-green-grey UI elements of drop down menus and tags etc.

Left Panel, Note List, and Note Panel are checked in view, so upper right is note list, and lower right is the note body.

There is no "File Exit" - either the app crashes on its own, or hangs indefinitely until I kill it via Task Manager. It never recovers in that session.

ANd the note is in a notebook that is in a stack. Finding the note in the notebook doesn't crash. Seems to only crash when I am in the "Notebook" icon showing all 22,000+ notes.

EDIT: Also crashes when in the stack and not the notebook.

If I search for:

tag:excel refresh date

it doesn't crash. It is like it requires all 3 tags to be used.

thanks for the update and additional info. We're looking into it!

I had the crashing problem in EN Windows in beta 2 and 3.  In my case, selecting the note, selecting it as 1st or last in a shift-select, having it appear as the 1st item in a search, etc. all crashed instantly.  Basically, with the note panel open, if the note was active there it crashed.  It was a handful of feeds that crashed every time, for every emailed note from that feed.

To help support, they asked me to export some said notes in enex format, and send to them.  I did so, and they could repro the problem, and it is fixed (for me) in beta 4.  If you can do the same hopefully they can repro the problem.

I included the enex in this thread, so they have it for the beta cycle.

Import a page (simplified article) from a site that has bulleted or numbered lists. Some of the lists have no space between the last item and the next heading/text, which I don't like. Press enter after the last list item (bulleted or numbered), and press the formatting bar item for removing the bullet/number. The block of numbered/bulleted text is highlighted, and in some cases the entire note. I don't see anything in the activity log to indicate what the problem might be. Not something I have seen before. Happens with a couple of different sites that I use.

I don't know the answer to your question. However, here is an example page: https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2017/11/10/how-to-grow-radishes.aspx. There are a couple of sections where the problem occurs.

I tried this and it is not happening to me.  But I do not use tags or notebook names with symbols other than -  .   I then created notebook "@goofy", and created 2 notes in that notebook with tags @donald and @minnie.  Saved a search notebook:@goofy, tag:@donald, then ran that, then new note, and the tag is applied.  So I can repro with the @ symbol but not without it (didn't test#).

Thanks for testing this. Since 99% of the tags I consistently use in saved searches begin with @ or #, I figured this was happening to everyone. Clearly not, but you helped narrow it down for the EN team.

I've experienced from time to time now that the note editor won't load when I create a new note. The "drag files here or just start typing..." won't come up and I can't enter text. It can sometimes be fixed by entering a title first. Then the note window turns black and the note editor loads.

It doesn't seem to me that search filters should affect new notes, but it does. I have a saved search and I've clicked on it, which is basically:

So I am paying bills, and when I go to download bills/statments as PDF files, I am saving them from Chrome into my Evernote Import Folder.

The problem is they are all imported with @home and #bills tags. This is not correct.

If I click on NEW NOTE while in this search, the note is created with @home and #bills tags, and I. CANNOT. DELETE. THE. TAGS. from the note. Clicking the little x does nothing.

This has been broken for a few builds. Can someone look at the logic that is going on? 

  • I can understand New Note working the way it does, except I should be able to delete the tags.
  • I cannot understand how importing files, which can be 100% unrelated to my current project, gets tagged based on a search that is set. 

Thanks for the report. If you move to a different note, and back to the tagged one, are you able to then delete the tag?

@gustavgiThanks for the report. To confirm, does the content appear after selecting File > Exit  and reopening the app, or is the note panel still blank after reopening Evernote?

If this happens again, please send a log using these steps. 

  1. Press and hold the CTRL key, and select Help from the file menu
  2. Check Enable Javascript Console Logging
  3. Click on 2-3 different notes 
  4. Select Help > Activity log
  5. Send me the log via forum DM

I seem to be stuck at 6.7.2.5576

I keep on getting prompted that there is an update, it goes through the update process (indicating that it is updating to 6.8.4) yet after update, I'm still on 6.7.2.5576

If I check for updates, of course there it is 6.8.4 again.

I even killed all Evernote processes, download the installer from the link in this thread, same story.

Do I really need to fully uninstall to be able to upgrade?

Thanks

No. the only way to delete the tags is to close the note window. I can then delete the tag in the Note View window (bottom right when in List View), or open it in a separate window again and then delete tags.

I'm having issues with images being removed for no discernible reason.  I created a new file, copy/paste some text from a webpage, take a screenshot and paste it in the note. I then sync. When it comes back from sync odds are pretty good that the image will have disappeared.

And just now I saved a webpage (web clipper/chrome) as Simplified Note, with quite a number of images in the note. They are all there in the webclipper, but when I checked the note it created in Evernote there were no images.

Just me?

Whoa whoa whoa. The new PDF reader (Chrome, yeah?) is nice, but now I don't know how to drag and drop the PDF from Evernote into another app. There used to be the little 3-bar symbol at the top of the attachment, where I could grab it. Now what do I do? Workflow totally broken.

EDIT: Been away from the forums a bit, I see this has been discussed in previous beta threads. Count this as a chime-in that I'm personally completely stranded in my workflow without this functionality. I depend on this daily and hope it's a top priority to fix this in the immediately following beta. For now I will not be storing PDFs in Evernote until this is fixed, which is incredibly unfortunate and frustrating.

Not typically, no. But from my understanding of the issue I think it's necessary in this case. Please let us know if you're unable to update to 6.8.4 after uninstalling 6.7.2 from the control panel, then installing it from the link. 

Thanks

I went to uninstall, and to my surprise it said that it was at 6.8.4

Although the shortcut and the about dialog clearly said that it wasn't.

So I uninstalled it regardless, and installed it back.

All OK now, it reads 6.8.4 and there are no more updates.
I wonder what the issue was.

Many thanks

The "sync" settings aren't sticking. I have mine set to 5min. When I change to to one hour, it changes back to 5 min.

See also this thread where even when it is set, it isn't honoring it. For instance, the user is getting a sync when clipped via the browser, even though it shouldn't be based on the sync settings. He, I think, has it unchecked so it never automatically syncs.

Any plans to fix the utter random jibberish percentages that CTRL++ and CTRL+- select in the annotate tool? There is no logic to what it is doing.

And CTRL++ (rightly) will cycle through, even though it isn't a smooth upward progression of numbers. CTRL+- will not. When it goes down to 25%, it stops. Should go to 400% after that to be consistent and cycle back through.

Well dang. I could have sworn we (me!) fixed that already... Guess a regression crept back. I've created a bug to track that.

edit: Looks like there was some dumb logic in there. It only remember the time change if the checkbox changes state. Workaround: Uncheck auto sync, save options, open options, reenable and change time interval.

I can keep calm but it does not change the fact that its not good enough. Drag and Drop is productivity 101. Something that Evernote should be about, productivity. And it used to work, so its regression. That's unacceptable. Come on guys, you can do better than that.

Accidentally and luckily, the problem was fixed once I installed this beta version. However, the app is consistently crashed, then never get back to normal until I reboot. Even if I tried to relaunch the app after crash, nothing happened at all.

If I click on this search many time, in sequence, I obtain two different result sets!!! One with 3 notes, one with 10 notes. There is not logic in this behaviour!!!

 

Appears familiar. 

Which language? Here, in German language, I have the same problem that a saved search with "any" is changed to "all". This happens in the Win client, only, Mac version and web version and iOS version of the same saved search are fine.

I use English and I've seen this. I'm not sure when it happens but the result is familiar. Ì turned off the option to view the group of pages (not near computer to get official wording)  the problem goes away so it is probably something to do with that.

Yeah, I see the same thing, weird.  I was able to get consistency by putting created:day updated:day in the search bar and toggling the All/Any drop down.  However, after I saved the search it performs in error.  Definitely a bug.

FYI, in saved search, searches saved with any:  sometimes come up all:, randomly.  EN is aware of this and has a bug open to fix.  Sounds related.

Two things - I wonder if some of the slowness that people keep reporting (and I have experienced) comes from the tweaks that MS keeps making to Windows 10 - EN seems to run fine for a while, then there is an update, and EN slows down?

For the timeline, you might as well stand outside and shout into a hurricane force wind - you will not get a timeline for any release/update from EN. It's just something they don't do. No, I don't work for EN - I have just seen that sentence repeated so many times. Actually, I don't work for anyone at the moment!

Older version of Evernote works just fine, despite windows updates. I don't think that is the problem, perhaps its just a matter of correlation vs causation.

P.S.
And yes you are right about timeline. Something that makes all the sense in the world, since they use so many beta testers and many are payed users as well as help people plan for the future... but some yahoo exec at the top has decided they don't want to share. Been a source of many frustrations for years at Evernote forums. Even promised features were changes and not delivered at all. I'm not sure what is worse.

I saw in another thread that Evernote is still pursuing a common UI project. Is that the case?  As one of those of us who lived through the launch and quick demise of the “beautiful” Windows release this strikes fear in my  heart. Can you reassure me that no paradigm shift is in the pipeline for the Windows client?

I ran an information session for a group of Evernote Users yesterday.  My mistake is I used the Windows beta.  There is something clearly wrong.

When typing a note, the program is slow and non responsive.  When clicking on a note, slow opening.  Drag and drop is very hit and miss.  Finally, the overall performance is significantly slower.  

And the tables presentation raises questions because their is a visible lag as it tries to resize to the window.

In keeping with the comments from Noteworthy above, this version is no were near ready for release.  

Can we have a real timeline on the next beta that addresses all of the questions raised and returns Evernote for Windows back to a fast performing application?

Thank you.

My understanding is that it's a common editor, not a common UI. The common editor is embedded in the UI of the various OS specific clients.

If the say they are changing the UI because they are streamlining UIs across platforms, it's another indication that a more common UI is on the agenda.

Still grasping to figure out what you're referring to. Did you mean this quote from Chantal earlier in this topic?

"Good callout - I've added to the the list of the changes in the post description. We're doing this to align our color usage across platforms. Expect to see this change make its way across desktop platforms. In terms of how it was selected, we were looking for a color that would complement the other colors we use, including our green. Expect to start seeing more use of that accent color in parts of our UI as we continue doing improvements. A good example of this is the new column/row button in the editor. "

So sure, there's perhaps some move afoot to have some convergence of look/feel to the applications across, which, like the common editor component, is only part of the whole application UI (menus, controls, keyboard, mouse, gestures, presentation, layout, etc., etc.). And that's not anything new (unlike the common editor project). But I still haven't seen anything that says that Evernote is planning on some grand UI convergence. For all we know, the color thingie may be marketing driven (note: "our green"), rather than usability/technologically driven.

My understanding is that it's a common editor, not a common UI. The common editor is embedded in the UI of the various OS specific clients.

 

My error.  This thread says common editor. I read it as UI; a bit gunshy, sorry.

No problem -- just trying to make sure that I didn't miss anything...

Hello Madam, I have updated to the new version 6.8. In the new version I'm not able to 'Paste and Match Style' as I used to do before. Before when I copy a bulletined note from MS Word, if I paste and match style, it automatically used to come in a bulletined format. But now it is not formatted properly and there's '*' comes in every line and it's not aligned also properly. I have attached the two screen shots, in w/h 'image 1' is what I'm facing right now and 'image 2' is what I supposed to get or I used to get in previous version. Is it a bug or anything else. But other members did not highlight this issue here. As I use Evernote for note-making purpose, I think I have found this or only I'm facing such issue?! Please help me sir. This makes it very hard to use Evernote as I have to format text each and every time I copy-paste a text. Thank you.

The current expected behavior when pasting bullets from Word and pasting into Evernote with paste and match style is to remove the formatting and paste as text only. This means you will see a "*" to represent in text there was a bullet pasted from the external app.

If the purpose was to remove the formatting and paste as text only, then sir, why do I get this "*" w/h  makes the whole process unfriendly. Now we have to spend more time on removing the "*" and do the bullets again. If 'paste and match style' is intended to paste the text only, then allow only the text alone to be pasted and let the user to do whatever they want as either adding bullets or leave it as it is.. But having an "*" ruins the either way. One could not leave the text as it is  or have a bullets also!

Thanks for the comments - I've filed this as a feature request with the development team to take another look at the behavior.

Thank you very much sir. I hope the development team will take the appropriate action and do away with this "*" feature while copy from external app. It is more time consuming one and testing the patience while making notes.

I wonder if some of the slowness that people keep reporting (and I have experienced) comes from the tweaks that MS keeps making to Windows 10 - EN seems to run fine for a while, then there is an update, and EN slows down?

It's a constant evolution; the OS changes, requiring EN app changes.  
Not just slowness, the app or features may stop functioning
