windows (Archived) Windows 4.6.0 Beta 2

84 posts in this topic

Hello people of Windows,

We have a 4.6.0 Beta 2 that has some new installer processes that we need help field testing. Our internal tests haven't run into any issues, but we'd like it to see some time in the field to be sure. We also have some minor fixes, for example we have a fix for tags disappearing (and reappearing when you re-size the left panel).

We have a known issue with the Internet Explorer clipper, it seems to not launch/clip properly. We will try to push out a fix very soon for this.

OK, seemed to install fine, quicker than yesterdays. 3 UACs, thought it was usually 2.

So, first impression: a saved search that operates over all notebooks really does now search over all notebooks, including joined notebooks. Once you're in all notebooks, you cannot switch back to All My Notebooks from the search info dropdown, and if you select All My Notebooks from the notebook list, you lose your search terms. Still think it'd be useful to be able distinguish in the grammar whether you want All Notebooks, All My Notebooks, and maybe also All Joined Notebooks. And the search info dropdown could use an All My Notebooks entry.

thanks dlu and the Windows dev types, too.

If I am understanding correctly how the searches are working, then they no longer work the same across the clients if you have joined notebooks. In Windows it works one way (sometimes searches joined notebooks), in Mac another (always searches joined notebooks), and in iOS yet another (no search of joined notebooks). Advanced users might be able to cope with the inconsistencies, but maybe not in the way you want: I left all of my joined notebooks except for one so that my iOS and Mac search results would return the same results.

Out of the three, Windows, as usual, is the most flexible and functional. I recommend sticking with it on every client and perhaps following Jefito's suggestions.

Did I understand the situation correctly? For a while we had no note counts in iOS and Mac, so I may have misinterpreted my own tests a couple of weeks ago when I had more shared notebooks.

This might just be due to some of us reading all of those iOS and Mac threads right before bed

I thought it seemed to install quicker than I remember it doing so previously. That's a good sign :)

You also changed it to stop the tags collapsing when you changed between shared notebooks too.

Thanks!

At least your team gets to go to bed. The poor OSX and iOS folks won't ever get any sleep, and if they do, instead of dreaming about sugarplums dancing in their heads, they'll have nightmares about back buttons and list views following them down the streets like the Walking Dead.

Can anyone give me evernote.msi from v. 4.5.10. 'Cause I lost this temp file and can't upgrade my installation RNi6.png

Love the removal of the shared tab notebook, and the minor aesthetic changes. Installed perfectly, both yesterday's version and today's (268148).

It's hard for me to work with, however. I'm seeing the hourglass far more than I used to. I've had to close and reopen the program a couple of times in the last hour because it was getting stuck on importing a 2-page PDF into a note.

A problem I'd been seeing for awhile seems to have gotten worse. If I have a graphic or a file -- a Word doc, for example -- embedded in a note, and I delete it that embedded file, the program takes a long time -- up to a minute -- to allow me to insert a replacement graphic or doc into it.

I'm running XP SP3 on an old computer with plenty of RAM and have 8,200 notes at this point, which may help explain the lag. EN was responding significantly faster before this upgrade, though.

Thanks,

Lena

One more bug, happened twice: Pasted formatted text into a note and Undo, Ctrl-Z, didn't work to unpaste it.

Thanks,

Have we lost the ability to have the note panel on the right-hand side? It is now below the list, which I find to be less efficient as my rectangular screen is horizontal rather than vertical ...

There are a couple of secret methods available in the client. Courtesy of spg SCOTT:

* use the shortcut Ctrl+ Shift + F5, or...

* Hold down the Shift key while clicking on the List option in the View selection dropdown

Both of these toggle between horizontal and vertical list views.

Thank you Jefito, and thank you Scott! Back to being a happy camper with Evernote!

If I have clicked on a Saved Search (from my shortcut bar), then just want to switch to "All Notes" by clicking on its icon in the left hand tree view, it takes several clicks:

First click: a brief flicker, and then the next panel shows that instead of going straight to All Notes, it's kept MOST of my saved search, apart from switching the notebook it's meant to be using to "All Notes"

Second click: Same again

Third click: Same again

Fourth click: Displays All Notes.

Here's a glitch: From the Notebooks pane, I dragged "All My Notes" to the Favorites bar. When I dropped it there, a button labelled "4294967294" was created on the Favorites bar. It appears to do nothing.

Another related problem, which may have existed before: if you drag a stack from the Notebooks panel to the Favorites bar, you get a button labelled with the first notebook in the stack.

We were having GUID numbers displaying in the bar last version. Maybe it is cropping up in this beta in a different way.

That is something that GM reported in the previous version, though it was with the notebooks dropdown menu that he saw it I think.

Peter mentioned that it may be related to a registry entry, but I think he may have also said that it should be fixed.

EDIT...to fast Grumpy, too fast :P

Yeah, I remember the number (-2 in 32-bit signed integer), just wanted to report the different context. Not sure that I'd call is a GUID proper, which tend to be quite large numbers (128 bits), but I would have guessed it's some sort of temporary stand-in for a notebook identifier (because of the -2). Anyways, yeah.

Trying to test your issue with the All My Notes so I took all notes off the favourites bar. Now I can't pin it back. It just moves a separator bar around...

The default setting still isn't working. Too many times, notes get added to the active notebook, not the default notebook. Here are the scenarios that I've seen this happen:

  • In Windows 7, if Evernote is not in the default notebook (@inbox in my case), if I add a new note via the jump list, it goes to the active notebook.
  • If Evernote is not in the default notebook, new scans from the Fujitsu ScanSnap goes to the active notebook if it is set to add scans directly to Evernote. Found that out when a bunch of scans were mysteriously missing, and found them in a notebook I was working on earlier in the day.

Image sizes explode when rotating.

If I take a picture with my iPhone 5 in EN 5.1 (doesn't matter if taken in EN or imported from the Pictures folder), then rotate the image in the desktop version 90 degrees the images swells from 1.5-2.2MB to something well over 9MB! I had an image that was 1.7MB and here is what happened (actually - Evernote reports it at 1.7MB. Windows Explorer reports it at 1,423KB when it came over the photostreaming app.).

  • Rotate Clockwise - grew to 9.3MB
  • Rotate clockwise - grew to 9.6MB (it is now effectively just a flipped image at 180 degrees)
  • Rotate clockwise - Shrank to 9.3MB
  • Rotate clockwise - grew to 9.6MB (it is now the original image.)

Doing the same in apps like Paint.NET, even at 100% JPG fidelity (which is an oxymoron) it only grows from 1,423KB to 3,012KB, so more than doubles, but doesn't go up 400% like doing it within Evernote does.

Is it just me or are the indents on the tag hierarchy much smaller? I used to be able to scroll down my tag list and quickly see when I was in a sub-category vs a top level because of the indent level. Now, I cannot visually tell unless I have a top-level and 2nd level tag on the screen at the same time. Makes it harder to find things.

Adding a * hotkey (just like Windows) to expand all or the tree you are in and a rapid way to collapse would make navigating a lot of tags easier.
