Hyperlink to local file issue when accent in the path

Recommended Posts

Since update 6.16 (or 6.15), hyperlink to a local file with accent into the path does not work anymore.

Instead of having a %E9 (é) in the path, now it display � and the link does not open anymore.

Hi.  Which version of Windows do you have,  and have you tried re-creating the link?

Hi,

Thanks for your answer,

  • Tested on both Win7 and Win10.
  • Tested on local and network files
  • Link re-creation does not work
  • Link modification by replacing the  with %E9 does not work either.

Hi, I have the same problem; in the past, it used to work flawlessly but as OP pointed out after an update all my URLs linking to local files stopped working because of accents in the file path. It is very annoying. At the current time, the accent é is replaced with �, which makes the link to the local file broken. Thus I have to manually navigate to the file every time (and I have to access this file very frequently) and it is very time-consuming. Why can't EverNote go back to supporting accents in URLS? It shouldn't be too hard to fix!

I have Windows 10, tested on local files, link recreation does not work, link modification by replacing the � with %E9 does not work either. Please address thank you!

I am still having this issue, even after last Evernote update.

This is really annoying. It prevents me to deploy the new version in our company (Evernote Business users)

Same problem (in my case it the german Umlaut "ä" that's causing the problem) here. Please fix that, thanks.

Dear US people, there are characters used in the world other than in US. You should know by now.

And these characters aren't characterless! Hüsker Dü, Motörhead - come on, you clearly don't want us users not beeing able to link to a file in SUCH folders (-:

Depressing. There had been a time when it would have been fixed immediately.
