Evernote for Mac 7.14

Idea

Hello,

Evernote for Mac 7.14 is now available. You can download it here.

Fixed:

  • Sometimes the app would get stuck loading a note (usually a web clip or shared note) until finally it gave up and assumed you were offline. But now your notes should load fast enough to make you smile.
  • If you updated to macOS Catalina then tried to highlight text inside a PDF, it would look like there was nothing selected. You could say it was a big fail, but on the bright side, we fixed it.
  • Updates to templates

Hello Nick, thanks for releasing 7.14 officially. Have installed it right away, worked very well (MacBook Pro 15 / 2018, Catalina 10.15.2, direct install).

I use MacUpdate and AppCleaner to stay current and clean. When I updated, I got a window from AppCleaner with several folders it wanted to erase. I confirmed, and got a good install. I am not sure it works always like this, especially when updating without a little help.

Today I tried to help a forum member who had an installation of 7.14 beta 2 that obviously took a wrong turn. Maybe these cases are related to some system residue not cleaned out.

AppCleaner always leaves contents from the Group Containers directory unchecked, which is mostly the database. If you were trying to roll back a user from a beta to a general availability version, you must check all the boxes, particularly the one for the Group Containers directory.

Hi Nick,

I installed the new Safari Web Clipper but there is a problem. I cannot load the site "Gothamist.com." It seems to load, but disappears. The problem is resolved if I deactivate the Evernote Web Clipper. I tried deleting the Web Clipper app and reinstalled it from the App Store, but I get the same problem. 

Trying to clip from this site (it shows up blank in Safari) gives a blank note in Evernote, too.

Thanks for looking into this.

Just tried the site with my iPad. There will always be pages that make it hard to clip or else, because they want the traffic themselves, or just do not know how to deliver a „good“ page. The Site misses the option to switch to reader mode as well.

Probably the code of the Site sucks - I get pretty weird results, either on sending it directly into EN, or using a shortcut command. 

A better result came when I shared it from my DuckDuckGo - browser (which is a privacy-optimized non-profit browser). The most interesting effect is that a lot of ads disappear. Sharing is possible, but takes a lot of time. In EN it still has a weird appearance, which from their look makes me believe it relies heavily on tables to do the formatting of the page.

The best solution I found was to „print“ it into a pdf, and send this into EN. The page looks like in the browser, full of ads, but with all the information. Because it is a pdf, the information is now static, which for a page like this probably does not make much sense.

Maybe the EN team will look after the page, to see what’s different. But I would not expect a „fix“.

We should be discussing this in the web clipper forum

I can confirm your results - I have ticket #2983029  opened for this

edit: Feedback from technical support
Our development team is aware of the issue and they're currently working on a fix.

Someone posted here

 

 

Thanks so much for the very helpful info, and I'll go to the web clipper forum for the rest of this discussion. I'm new to this forum and didn't realize.

You might try AppDelete, which I believe initially checks all related folders/files.  Years ago AppCleaner was reported as missing some files, so I started using AppDelete.  It has always worked well for me, and I've never seen any reports about it missing files.

Looks like you may have introduced a bug:

@SMcCandlish, OK, it just tested this running Evernote 7.13 (458080) on macOS 10.14.6 (Mojave), and it worked:

  • file:///Users/Shared/Dropbox/Mac%20Only/Scan%20Inbox/ExamplePDF.pdf
  • mailto:SomeUser@SomeDomain.com

So this must be a change between EN Mac 7.13 and 7.14.

Too bad.  I was just about to update to Ver 7.14, but I'll hold off for now.

About AppCleaner: It does not miss anything (at least to my experience), it only has rules for a regular uninstall on what to delete, and what to leave. These can be overruled by checking things manually in the pre-cleaning window. Usually it is o.k. to leave the unchecked items on the Mac. These are the data files. Since EN reinstalls from the server, they can go as well. With other programs that are not server based, it is better to keep them.

In case of a complete uninstall I check these positions manually, and off they go.

@Nick L. or any Users of Ver 7.14, can you please confirm, or refute, that in Ver 7.14 you can set a hyperlink (Format > Link > Add) using a URL to these:

  1. file URL:   file:///some.path/someFileName.ext
  2. email:       mailto:someName@someDomain

Thanks.

@Nick L., while I'm here, could I please ask you to reinforce, to your Dev Team,  our request to allow Non-http url schemes in notes and links  as valid link URLs.

ALL USERS:  If you agree with this request, please go to Non-http url schemes in notes and links  and cast your vote for it.  Thanks.

I think, at least I hope, that this would be a simple change, just a matter of changing the validation of what is allowed in the Add Link dialog.
