Evernote for Windows 6.17 GA

Idea

Today we released Windows 6.17 GA. It's available here!  
(Link has been updated and now includes a hotfix for importing emails from Outlook)
 
What’s in 6.17 GA?

New:

- You told us you love Templates, so we’ve made it even easier for you to use them. Now you can view our gallery of templates—plus any you’ve saved—right inside the app. Just click on the “Template” button when you create a new note to see them all. Oh yeah, you know we’re doin’ our happy dance.
- Now there’s one easy place to find all the notes and notebooks that have been shared with you. Check out “Shared with me” over there in the sidebar.

Fixed:

- Now you can drag-and-drop notes from one shared notebook to another shared notebook.
- We fixed an issue that removed a tag from a new note after you performed a search with that same tag name.
- CTRL + N creates a new note in your current notebook instead of your default notebook.
- Tamil and Sanskrit characters now display properly in the title of a note.
- PDFs/images no longer disappear when attached to a new note via drag-and-drop.

However, let's say you wanted to annotate the calendar and print it for your family, should we not expect the template to fit effectively on Letter (8 1/2" x 11")?

I made a schedule for my kids and printed it. I tried to play with margins and percentage to get each month to land on its own page...it was surprisingly difficult.

I also wonder whether the PDF search problem is solved in this release ?

Oops.  Seems I can confirm @Alessandra's experience.  I just started throwing errors with the Outlook Clipper - and my email had file attachments too.  Reported as Ticket #2753464

There were some other issues.

I'm getting the same error. My OS is Windows 10, and I'm using Outlook for Office 365 and of course Evernote for Windows GA 6.17.

Thanks for letting us know you submitted a ticket, @gazumped as this saves me from also having to do so.

Is there a way to type in Evernote using  diacritical marks that add to roman characters? In ms word I can do this with Unicode fonts but I cannot transfer the shortcuts to Evernote. I can type a limited number of diacritical marks if I input through a touch screen keyboard but not with a physical keyboard

I just tried to clip an email without an attachment and am still getting an error. It looks like for at least some of us this update has caused the Evernote Outlook Clipper to stop working entirely. I'll submit my own support ticket later when I have the chance.

I have a fix pending review. This problem would have also been in the last Beta, but we missed it there. This is related to the new note failure in that Beta.

Thanks @dconnet - at least I know it's not me,  it's definitely you! (As in:  Evernote - not you personally...;))

The response to my ticket was the same -

It looks like this issue was introduced in the most recent Beta version and is also affecting the new Evernote version for Windows desktop. While not ideal, a workaround would be to roll back Evernote for Windows desktop to version 6.16.4. Here are the steps:

  1. If Evernote is running, select File > Exit from the menu bar to exit the Evernote app
  2. Click the 'Start' button to open your Start menu
  3. Go to Control Panel > Uninstall a program
  4. Select Evernote, then click Uninstall
  5. Restart your computer
  6. Exit Internet Explorer and Outlook (if installed & open)
  7. Download and install (as an administrator) Evernote for Windows from http://cdn1.evernote.com/win6/public/Evernote_6.16.4.8094.exe
  8. Open Evernote and log in to your Evernote account

Please let me know if you get the same error message after installing version 6.16.4.

 

I can work around this for the meantime,  so I'll persevere with 6.17...  looking forward to the fix though.

Quiet UI change???  Is it just me or did the font size of the note title shrink a bit.  Something has been catching my eye, just not sure.

They added an option in Tools --> Options --> Note --> Note title font and set it to 10pts by default. You can change it to the desired size. It is right under Note font dialog box.

The way it is presented is slightly different, though the font size should be the same. We now allow you to specify the font and font size for the title. That was the only reasonable way to get all character glyphs to show correctly. (I'm not aware of any standard Windows font that has all unicode characters. Text is hard.)

My title font shrunk a bit, from 11 to 10 I'm guessing, though I've always used 10 for default font size in notes.  Good option to have, thanks.

For the record:  my smugness with the email issue didn't pay off so well - my work-arounds for being unable to clip in Outlook were:

  1. forward emails to my account address,  and
  2. (since I use Gmail a lot) use the web clipper - which has a Gmail option on that page.

Strike out (2) - I tried web clipper in Firefox, Vivaldi, Brave and Opera - all of them give me a blank window when I try to clip a Gmail.

So.  Forwarding it is then...   😏

We released the hotfix last night, so the email issue should be fixed now.

Yay! Thankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouthankyou.

Mail clipper is still broken for me,  but I see a 6.17.5 is available - downloading now.!

I just downloaded and installed 6.17.5 and I can verify the Outlook clipper is working again (at least for me).

I haven't been shy over the last year or so about voicing my displeasure with Evernote, so it's only fair that I give credit to the company when it does something well. While this is a bug that I'd argue shouldn't have made it to a general release, Evernote was very responsive to customer feedback and I for one appreciate the rapid fix.

I noticed you didn't mention Chrome in your list. Have you tried it with that browser? I've had issues using the Evernote Web Clipper for Chrome with Gmail but it works for the most part.

I've also found that when the clipper gives me a blank window I can still create a note that has the link back to the original email in Gmail. It's not as good as having the email content in the body of the note but it's a workaround that I've found better than nothing for my purposes. I don't know if that suits your workflow but figured I'd mention as an FYI.

Thanks for the tip - Vivaldi, Brave and Opera all use variations on the Chrome engine so I didn't bother to try it as well. 

I'll check it out,  but it seems like the Outlook clipper failure bug is now quoshed in Evernote 6.17.5 so it shouldn't be necessary.  The reason I like grabbing my mail via Outlook is that I can (usually) clip the content,  and - where necessary - attach the .MSG file which will launch the full email window if I click on it for replies.  Since most email threads go back and forth with the conversation I find 'inbox zero' is a possibility.  And it makes the email client run much faster.  I just keep the content of emails in Evernote for records - probably mainly attachments and purchase receipts.

Gotcha. I use Outlook for Exchange only and work with Gmail using the Web UI exclusively. Hence why I hedged on what might or might not match your workflow. 😁

Bug report - inconsistencies.

I was looking at business card notes in response to another thread and found some inconsistencies.

  1. Notebook is referred to as Location in the Note List and Notebook in the information drop down.
  2. Location in the information drop down is the geo code when the business card note was created.
  3. The geo code Location appears in the URL field in the note header area, but in the Location field in the note information.
  4. Geo code Location is not an available field in the column selector drop down.

Screen clips below.  Not going to stop any processing for sure, but kind of ugly.  :(

Possible bug: 

While importing a bunch of old notes from another program (FlashNote) using Ctrl-Alt-V, I observed that many of them were imported with font size 10, instead of 14 which I have as default. 

I said possible, because it doesn't always happen, but it seems to have gone away when I set the title font from 10 to 14 also. 

If I am correct, then maybe the title setting maybe affecting the regular note setting in some way.  It could be an issue unique to Flashnote, but Flashnote has no formatting for notes.

I wonder whether anyone else observed this behavior.
