New update broke font rendering in High Sierra

Recommended Posts

I'm running High Sierra and just updated Evernote. Font rendering is now much worse.

Don´t know if it's quite visible in the screen attached, but...

Anyone noticed this?

Yup. There is is. And yes, I too am running High Sierra on both an iMac desktop, and an MBAir. And it all looks just as awful as your screenshot. Thanks for posting. Meanwhile, I have found no way to contact Evernote, as all pathways also seem to have problems. If you get any feedback, perhaps you could share again.

Thanks for reporting this issue. We're currently aware of it and will be looking to resolve as soon as possible. This beta post  highlights this issue as well as some other pressing ones we're aiming to fix by version 7.7. 

Thanks,

While we're waiting for 7.7, could Evernote provide downloads to earlier releases so we can use it without the font rendering issue?

Hi, same problem here with High Sierra. It would be great if we can downgrade Evernote software to previous release in the meantime. Anyone has found a link?

I found version 7.5.2 on cdn1.evernote.com : dmg, zip.

However, I think it would require me to completely delete all my notes that have been downloaded locally.  I had tried to downgrade and the (older) Evernote app said that my data was being managed with a later version).  Since I wasn't quite ready to do that (and I wasn't sure that I would get all of the folders/directories and files), I upgraded to 7.6 again.

Given the work-around above, i.e. opening a note in a new editor window (i.e. double-clicking on a note or right click --> Open Note in New Window), version 7.6 is fine for now.  If only it would work the same in the main editor window ...

Yes; the database and app usually have to be the same version.

My process is to delete the database folder.  It will be rebuilt from the server when I login (except for Local Notebooks)

Recently installed High Sierra on my 2011 iMac and with the Evernote 7.7 update got the same ugly font rendering/aliasing issue as mentioned above. Please prioritise a fix for the next update as font rendering is fundamental to usability.

Same happened to me: iMac mid 2010 updated to High Sierra suffers bad font rendering, while MBP end 2011 that remains in Sierra has a normal font view.

this issue is lasting too long in my oppinion, and should have already  been corrected.

I really don't understand why this haven't been fixed yet... I'm also looking for alternatives to Evernote.

The program is no longer usable on macOS High Sierra (10.13.6) : the notes are almost unreadable, with any font.  Evernote has become unusable ! 
Version 7.8 didn't fix the issue !

Me too looking for alternatives

For me the biggest issue here is, it's a known problem since mid-November... we are in mid-January and the solution isn't even being tested in the Beta channel. Sometimes I feel that Evernote focuses too much in design changes in the fiel of aesthetics instead of work on usability.

I've really lost count the times we have changed of interface, major or minor changes, in the last couple of years.

This is ghastly. Text smoothing is completely gone and the contrast of light text on dark background is very poor. With some help from this post I was able to restore the previous Evernote + prefs + database from the backup I (thankfully) did a few days ago.

Was this ever fixed !? Initial posting was in November of last year!!! 

Is it time to look for an alternative to Evernote? Things are getting worse from one version to another, with useless features and it seems breaking the product  itself!

No, it has never been fixed ...  Indeed, I'm afraid it is time to leave and look for an alternative.  I give them just one more upgrade to fix the issue, if not fixed ...

No Luck on 7.9 either as the problem is well known to them ... 

See their reply ...  so it are we blasting this on Tweeter and every where else and head out ?!!

"Hi Leo,

Thank you for reaching out again. Also, I appreciate the additional information you've provided.

I understand that it's a known issue of updated Evernote version on Mac devices.

Our technical team is working on a fix for this, and we're planning to address it in an upcoming release.

Should you have outstanding questions, you may feel free to get back to us and we'll assist you accordingly.

Sincerely,

Haidee S.

I've given them one more upgrade to fix the issue.  It is not fixed in version 7.9 ... so I've cancelled my Premium subscription and I've migrated all my notes to Notion.  

I have had enough patience !

just sharing some workaround: Install 'nativefier' using homebrew, than convert https://evernote.com into app. Now you can use the webapp like a native app and the text will not be wrong. I know that is not the same thing, but its only way that i found. I hate so much this text bug, but i love evernote and i can't use another application.

install homebrew: https://brew.sh/index_pt-br
nativefier link: https://github.com/jiahaog/nativefier
1- install homebrew,
2 - install nativefier: open terminal and run: brew install nativefier
3 - than you can convert the webapp, run in terminal: nativefier https://evernote.com

nativefier will create the application on the home folder, than you can move the application to your applications folder.

 

sorry if something is wrong with the text, English is not my first language.
