Evernote for Windows 6.9 Released

Idea

[Edit 2/15:  We've updated the 6.9 version to address issues where some tables and clipped content could sometimes appear blank in notes. We were able to detect the issues as we were starting to roll out to a small percentage of our users and have now fixed this and will continue roll out, monitoring for any issues. The link below has been updated.] 

Hi Folks - 

This week we're announcing general availability of version 6.9. You can download it here, and it'll be available on the Microsoft Store soon.This version brings some much requested fixes to drag + drop quality. You should now be able to drag and drop attachments from many more 3rd party apps including Outlook into Evernote.  

In addition to drag + drop, we've also made a number of other improvements and fixes: 

  • Fixed an issue where a note still displays and is editable even though it's no longer shared 
  • Fixed an issue where inline PDFs are blank when mail attachments are clipped to Evernote
  • Aligned 'New Note' button look + feel to other Evernote apps
  • Fixed an issue where links in PDFs don't open in a browser
  • Fixed an issue where ctrl+mousewheel doesn't zoom in/out
  • Fixed an issue where recording audio is sometimes not saved when switching notes
  • Fixed an intermittent issue where the view looks garbled when starting Evernote when offline
  • Fixed an intermittent issue where text note's thumbnails are black when using the Thumbnail view for the note list
  • Fixed an issue where High Efficiency Image File Format (HEIF/HEIC) are not displayed in notes
  • Performance improvements for the notebook picker - especially when you have many notes + notebooks
  • Several crash and stability fixes

It also includes more improvements to sharing and organization for teams and businesses. You can learn more about the Evernote Business Public Beta here.

Thanks,

Chantal and the rest of the Windows Team

Hi,

Apparently, the bug with the insertion of horizontal lines is still unresolved (since Evernote 6.8).

A detail but very annoying when trying to keep a journal note with "nicely" separated sections clean.

Hope it wil get fixed soon... and before the new version is available on the Microsoft Store (nota bene : this only appears when the scale resolution of the screen is set by default on 125%).

The version currently available on the Microsoft Store (6.7.5741.0) doesn't show such a bug.

Have a great day,

Edited by Arnaud68

The bug where double tapping on a word on a touch screen to select it is handled like a right click, made it into the general release.

What's  up with "Simplify Formatting" and "Remove Formatting"? Somehow the functionality has changed. It seems that "Simplify Formatting" does nothing for me now, whereas "Remove Formatting" some of it, but it seems not as much as "Simplify Formatting" before, since I still can see some formatting remaining.

If my memory serves me right, "Simplify Formatting" did something like moving everything to "standard fonts", keeping bold, italic, hyperlinks intact (recently, however, titles, section headers etc seemed to remain in, with that particular formatting option non-accessible), whereas "Remove Formatting" removed all formatting including hyperlinks (essentially, "convert to plain text").

Can't see any mention of that in the release notes.

Btw, the "old" web version has a useful feature where formatting is only removed from the selected text. Therefore also a suggestion regarding "simplify formatting": If you already chose to leave bold, italic etc. intact, why don't you also leave the highlights (yes, yellow in Evernote, no other color availalbe) intact. That's usually my most "personal" formatting, more presonal than the "bold" and "italic" that you chose to keep.

Anyone have the issue with the blue lines surrounding note content?
 
Windows 7 Pro, SP1 on Dell Workstation. Very Powerful. No resource problem.
EN: v.6.9.7.6770 (306770) Public (CE Build ce-1.39.4387)
 
This was in v6.8.xx when I updated and tech referred me back to re-installing v6.7.xx
He said they saw it in a few other reports
But, I didn't get the sense that it was widespread
I thought it would be fixed in v6.9.xx
 
I just get a little nervous when EN does stuff it's not supposed to do
I also have issues with image behavior (too much to go into here)
 
Both of these issues were in v6.8.xx
And neither of them seems to have been fixed in v6.9.7 (at least not for me)
 
- EN Plus (6 years)

I still think that is confusing. What Microsoft has done is pretty easy to understand:

  • Paste - it keeps the source formatting to the best of its ability - i.e. what is supported.
  • Paste as Text - it keeps the destination formatting - i.e. it essentially brings in the ASCII and whatever format is in the note is what the new text gets.
  • Remove Formatting - turns whatever you highlight into plain old ASCII.

I have no idea what simply formatting means. It is just some nebulous area between "full formatting" and "no formatting" but no one really knows what it will look like when done.

I actually think simplify formatting is hugely useful! I use it all the time. 
And much to my dismay the functionality has now changed...

If you use Evernote like I do for any kind of research style work, then you're continuously copying snippets from all sorts of places into existing. These snippets can have all sorts of formatting, fonts, font sizes, etc. But I don' need any of that (not to mention, this creates terrible bloat, which makes Evernote significantly slower if you're searching through thousands of notes). I use bold/italics/highlight to indicate important things within these snippets + they often contain links which you want to keep as actual hyperlink. And I often copy-paste them from one place to the other. So I don't want just plain text, but I also don't want the bloat and visual clutter of full formatted text. 

TL;DR: Simplify formatting is popular for the same reason that Markdown is popular. 

 

@Evernote: 

  • It was always a bit of a PITA that highlight is removed when you hit Simplify formatting, but I took it to be a technical choice (I saw it as a 'turn into markdown equivalent' button). 
  • But now in the new version simplify formatting DOESN'T turn the text into default font type anymore? You remove highlights and titles, etc but after simplify formatting I'm still left with a mish-mash of different font types across the various snippets I copied into my note? I find this a very strange change and I really hope it turns out to be a bug or the choice is reverted in the next version. I think nobody is waiting for this. Under what scenario would someone have a bunch of text and they want to remove most formatting but keep the different type faces? I just can't imagine. Whereas the previous functionality had a much more wide-spread use case, i.e. it was essentially a 'clean up to markdown' button as I mentioned above, and Markdown is quite popular with good reason.

Thanks, this is really a major improvement :)  I'm glad we can dump version 8 now, this was the worst release ever...

My first impression is that drag and drop works now, but I have to drop the pdf thumbnail somewhere before the cursor, otherwise it doesn't drop at all (it opens the document instead).

Table  rendering has been improved in the print-to-pdf, it seems I can finally print my notes without distortion!

Possible bug on 6.9.6 release (Windows).    Tag Styles

Laptop "A" (my primary) in the tag management screen.  This is also the machine the tags were formatted in.5a80bb16e35da_evernoebug1.thumb.png.b8bc7267478f94b104c1ad9dade24461.png

formatted as "default" color, bold and solid caps.  I almost want to think it is the bolding of tags causing the problem, but I haven't played around to confirm or deny it.  Various tags were created at various time frames in Evernote versions so that might have something to do with it (all my solid cap tags above were in created in this most recent release).

5a80bb1d40da6_evernotebug3ScreenClip.png.5d391301c5b4a355558af7e0e810a370.png

 

Laptop B - how the tag's look when everything is sync'd.  It looks like only the items that I had in BOLD on the original machine are now invisible.  If I set the style on laptop B and click default color, the tags show up again (I did that with the "FEEDS" tag in my screen capture of laptop B).

5a80bb1bdf510_evernotebug2ScreenClip.thumb.png.04856332d3ff1da55867d1e4bd052bb0.png

 

*Bonus #1: Feel free to include a way to "collapse all/open all" tags in this view.  Far too often I jump to this screen and find numerous stacks of my tags all open.  It's tedious to close them all.  A way to open them all might be handy for some people.  I'll stick to "shift click" on a parent tab for now -- but it still is a pain for a large number to be all open for some 'unkown' reason.

*Bonus #2: A toolbar button to jump to this tags screen would be handy (and probably quite easy to implement).

 

** Update #1 - after the above fooling around on laptop B, now laptop A has turned my tags all invisible like as shown on the laptop B image.

** Update #2 - forcing a tag color (instead of "default") has the two machines sync up properly.  Selecting "Default" again has the tag go black on whatever machine I change it on - but the opposite computer it goes white (ie invisible) which is the sidebar tag color "default".

Maybe another 6.9.6 bug - in the tags layout.  It had been fine, but at some point, it appears that an 'extra' column (empty) has shown up in my tags view.

I'm unable to get a second windows system to duplicate this problem though.

Giving my two cents for what it's worth.
I could also do without the new and rather big new note button. At the very least allow it to be scrolled out of view or allow an option to hide it. That vertical real estate is precious.
Secondly, I actually do appreciate the more "condensed" view of the left panel. I understand this is more of a subjective preference, however for me this was a positive change. 
Lastly, the "Performance improvements for the notebook picker" has seemed to enhance my own experience, at least for now. The application seems much more responsive. 
Thank you, Evernote team, for your continued efforts.

That's true, and the point discussed was the vertical real estate in the minimal left-panel/sidebar.  I'll add a screenshot if anyone posts one

I do apologize if my statement was unclear or confusing. My reference was specifically to the left panel being open (with notebooks, tags visible). As someone with many tags, I prefer to have as many visible as possible at one time. This helps to minimize the amount of scrolling needed to find a particular tag (or notebook). My point being, therefore, that the vertical real estate in that panel is precious to me and the new "+ New Note" button is taking a considerable amount of said space. However, I will again state my appreciation of how the font spacing has been condensed so that more tags and notebooks are shown.

Given that, I can see the reference to "vertical real estate is precious".  I mistook condensed for minimal

I found trying to display shortcuts, notebooks, tags not workable in the panel; even with expanded/contracted hierarchy
I ended up with just icons and only display the lists when required

This has been around for a long time. The only workaround that has been suggested to me was to put all of my tags in an "All" tag, then the shift-click does work to collapse the whole tree. However, it would be truly awesome if all the tags would collapse when you close the program (or on some other magic waving of the wand).

Did not see whether it was mentioned already above: 

The nuisance of a perpetual First Launch Experience (IIRC, that is the name) screen survived the beta.

I am on 6.9.6.6729 (306729) Public (CE Build ce-1.39.4193) and a 9 year user with > 18K notes. Still, at every startup I get the screen for new users. Annoying, very annoying. And: No, it does not disappear after 5 starts or so.

Please remove this ...

Anyone else noticing the toolbar on your notes gets reset "often"?  I can't say regularly as I'm not certain as to what is triggering it.  Currently version 6.9.6. I think I noticed it on the last beta as well.

Just reinstall. It sounds like the installer crashed for some reason. One of the steps it does is remove previous versions before putting the current version on. No settings or data are removed, just all of the application files.

Seems it did the remove, but didn't do the 2nd step, the install.

So far, we have not been able to reproduce this. Could you try deleting the ".context" file for the associated .exb? This will reset a number of counts and notifications (so you will see some items again).

A bug reported in 6.9.3 beta 3 still exists in this GA.  If you process a jpg through an import folder and you rotate it in the resultant note the image disappears from the note.  And if one had source delete checked in import folders and no backup, the image appears to be gone forever.

Just to confirm, this note toolbar reset only occurs during the install, correct? I.e., after the install, you can move the reminder icon to the toolbar and it will stay there?

I believe this is the case.  I put the reminder icon back, removed the share icon after each beta install and the current public and it stuck.

Just tried it and everything stays after annotating. In annotating window, when you are done with your annotations, you need to choose File -> Save and Exit. Do not just close the window. Have you tried that?

Anyone having Work Chat issues since the past couple or so releases?  I've still got the problem in 6.9.7.
Basic work chats are fine, but when I go to share a note with an existing user, it isn't working.

Below, I've clicked the work chat/share note icon in the tool bar, and I start typing the name of whom I'm sending it too.  Click the entry with prior chat history and then share the note.

5a89a592241c3_enchat1ScreenClip.thumb.png.b7a4d630f8a21065c02a244eef95e44b.png

 

The recipient doesn't get the note or any sort of notification, not even in email.  Here's what shows in my work chat history.  Instead of the note and message in with prior work chat items, it gets added as a new entry/separate chat.  But again, recipient doesn't get any notification. All entries in the screen shot below are supposed to be for the same person (same email address), but show up as separate entries.

Evernote version 6.9 is the best release I can remember by evernote. I wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU for fixing the disgustingly slow speed of the application, as well as the view of the notebook list. Drastic improvements. THANK YOU. I was so close to switching to OneNote.

I only have two questions about people's experiences with this version:

1-Is Paste and Match style finally and completely, 200% totally fixed?

2-Is your data totally safe with this version? 

Version 6.5.4 was the last version that felt totally safe for my data.  I have lost data with upgrades in the past, official releases, not betas, and I am aware that Evernote after 6.5 is using a new data engine for notes, hence worried about lingering bugs as far as data safety is concerned.

Thanks for any and all replies.

Interesting question, difficult to answer without knowing what EN intends the experience to be and what your expectations are.  You might want to scan the beta and public release threads in the forums to draw your own conclusions.

IAC, I'd like to see expectations set for (if someone has them somewhere please advise) 

  1. Paste
  2. Paste and match style
  3. Simplify formatting
  4. Remove formatting

Then we would know what to expect.  And with those definitions one could give a 200% fixed response, me anyway.  :(

Interesting question, difficult to answer without knowing what EN intends the experience to be and what your expectations are.  You might want to scan the beta and public release threads in the forums to draw your own conclusions.

I did, and the conclusion I found from scanning was, no one is quite sure.

My expectations are quite simple: whatever Evernote was doing with Paste and Match style until version 6.5.4 is good enough for me, whatever anyone calls it.  What has been happening after that is too unpredictable to be sure.   

Basically, paste the source as is (regular paste), or paste the page as plain text without formatting, is all I want.  Match style I assume simply means the current formatting, which is normally defined in the Options.  Even the strange inheriting of formatting I sometimes notice, is predictable enough to get used to it, that is until version 6.5.4.

At least since the new editor the results of these formatting commands have been shifting, without a defined end state.  I’d just like to know what to expect, have it be fixed to that, and have it stick.

Not sure if anyone already reported this, but it seems Undo in the Edit menu is broken, clicking on it doesn't do anything, yet typing Ctrl-Z works just fine.  Weird.

Just tested it again, it works for me to Undo typing, but it doesn't undo pasting (I copied and pasted your reply to Evernote, it refused to undo.  Yes, on on v6.9.7.6770 also.

Reinstalling did not change the behavior.

Ran into a problem with the web clipper in v6.9

Some pages are clipped, but others are not. 

Example page: https://swappa.com/listing/BTI246/view

When I clip in Article mode, the clipping process proceeds normally and returns a "Clipped to [notebook]" confirmation. But the note that is created is empty, apart from the title and URL field.

Edit: The same note (clipped in Windows) DOES render properly in Android and iOS apps. But in Windows, it's just an empty note.

Edit2: I think this may not be a clipping issue (though that's where I first noticed it). I have another note that is not a web clip that shows up empty in EN Windows, but shows normally in Android and iOS apps. I have not noticed this behavior prior to EN Win v6.9.

This week we're announcing general availability of version 6.9.

I See beta 10.xxx is already underway
 
Current public release as of 03-01-2018 is Evernote_6.9.7.6770
 
Anyone know how long these public builds usually go on before moving on ?
Or, if public releases of v6.9 will continue to have new builds at all.
 
Why?
 
I want to get the very last build of v6.9.xxx before moving on
Given the problems with v6.8 I want to wait to update to v6.9xxx to the version with least bugs
 
I guess I could just continue checking the site
But, was just interested in usual time frames.
 
I'm holding at v6.7 now, was waiting for 6.9.xxx
I had to go back after v6.8.xx install
 
- Thanks

I don't think there will be any updates to 6.9. I expect the next general release version will be 6.10.xx

Tough call.  6.7 may better than 6.9, depends a bit on your use case I suppose.  There are some things in the 6.10 beta that need to get fixed or 6.7/6.9 will be better than 6.10.

I've kept my backup laptop on 6.7 just so I can compare the difference, 6.7 being the last release with the good PDF viewer.

So, it seems that searching got faster, which is a huge plus! 

New (?) Bug: Right clicking on an image and choose rotate image (either way) makes images disappear instead

UI (I missed the last version, which seems to have implemented those things, but I'll still add it here): 

- Please add an option to hide the "new note" button. It's huge and it's misplaced (the pane is for existing content, not functions). Me, and everyone I know who uses EN, always uses ctrl-n, so, for many, it's just a useless big thing on your screen. 

- I really miss the old doubleclick behaviour for images and pdfs. New behaviour is inconsistent - double click does nothing on a pdf file, opens a new EN window for images (why would anyone ever want that?), but still opens the default application for any other file type I tried.

PS: I now get a popup every time I upload a doc or xls file telling me that as a premium user, I can search office documents. That's nice! But one time notification would be enough. :)

Anyone have the issue with the blue lines surrounding note content?
 
Windows 7 Pro, SP1 on Dell Workstation. Very Powerful. No resource problem.
EN: v.6.9.7.6770 (306770) Public (CE Build ce-1.39.4387)
 
This was in v6.8.xx when I updated and tech referred me back to re-installing v6.7.xx
He said they saw it in a few other reports
But, I didn't get the sense that it was widespread
I thought it would be fixed in v6.9.xx
 
I just get a little nervous when EN does stuff it's not supposed to do
I also have issues with image behavior (too much to go into here)
 
Both of these issues were in v6.8.xx
And neither of them seems to have been fixed in v6.9.7 (at least not for me)

Bug in saved searches (search operator any changes randomly to all):

I upgraded from Evernote 6.5 directly to 6.9, so I don't know if this is a new bug -- for me it is a new one. Do the following: Type in a search query with the "any:" operator, e.g.:

any: house garden

Then save this search. Click on this saved search several times and observe the list of search results (the number of notes matching the search query). You'll see that the search result changes randomly between a result list for any: house garden and a result list for house garden (= Boolean operator and instead of or). You can observe this as well at the top of the middle column, where the search operators can be changed by drop down fields. You'll see here that "any" changes from time to time to "all". This is really annoying since I work extensively with saved searches. At the moment I always have to check if the result list really shows what the respective saved search is intended to show.

@chronistin:

The new image viewer that opens when double-clicking on an image in Evernote is useful for users often collecting lots of images in one note. I normally scale down the images to small thumbnail sizes to have a good overview over all images collected in a note. Now I can use the new image viewer to toggle through all the images in full resolution. Before, I always needed to open every single image with my external image viewer to do the same. -- You still can open images with an external application: right-click on the image an select "open" (for your standard image application) or "open with ..." (for being able to choose the application).

Another annoying bug: drag and drop of files into an Evernote note places the file anywhere near the place I would expect it to be placed, but not at the correct place. In previous Evernote releases (my last was 6.5), the file was placed at that position in the note where I dropped it (independent of where the text cursor was at that moment). This is how I would expect the drag'n'drop functionality. Now, in 6.9, the file isn't placed at the position I drag it -- and not even at the current text cursor position. It is placed in the middle of the text in the following text row ...

I observe this bug with different file types and sources, e.g:

  • drag'n'drop an .jpg image from the Windows desktop
  • drag'n'drop an e-mail in .eml format from the Thunderbird e-mail client

I didn't have problems like this with Evernote 6.5

Tech support said they were working on it. May be fixed in EN v6.10.xx
The lines are annoying, but more than anything, anomalous behavior in EN causes me some concern about the integrity of my notes
Blue lines today, missing text tomorrow, kind of stuff...
