android Pages saved out of sequence when taking multi-photo shots with Page Camera in Evernote for Android

Recommended Posts

The page camera multi-photo mode doesn't work properly in evernote 5.0.3 for android, at least on my Nexus 4. The issue at hand is that when I create a note and append several photographs taken with the new page camera multi-photo option, the photographs aren't saved in the same sequence as they were taken, but in a seemingly random order.

 

I'd speculate that they are saved in the order of being finished processing, and not in the ascending order of their time-stamps?

 

The same is true with V 5.1 Beta 1, which I just now installed.

 

This makes the whole functionality a little awkward to use.

 

Best, M.

EN simple, why you are even introducing features, that are not working, do you even test it. Users all over complaining about it. Something is really wrong here.

I have the same problem on a Droid Razr Maxx and the new Nexus 7. Most of the time, I get the images in reverse order (the last picture taken appears first in the final note).

Hi - I'm getting this error too. Reverse order and the first page is normally inserted somewhere randomly amongst the others.

So, in April Evernote said that it would take a look at the problem. But the problem still exists. I'm taking pictures and I need them to be in sequence, but I end up having them organised in a random mode.

 

This Evernote app sucks. Please correct this.

Here is the response to my ticket on this subject 101953 opened in August of 2013.  I guess we will have to start using the year in our notes....

 

Hello evernote_frey,

 

Thanks for reaching out to Evernote support. I apologize for any inconvenience.

 

I am so sorry you have had to write back in regarding this.

 

The photos being out of order is actually by design. A note in Evernote will order the photos based on their file size, not the order in which they were taken or loaded. There is no way to currently change this.

 

As you know, they were entered before as bugs, but are now seen as requests. We have been told by developers this is by design.

 

I am sorry you have waited so long to find this out.

 

Sincerely,

Dusty
Evernote

Grrrrr. Wish I had known this before I shelled out for a moleskine notebook.

 

Evernote can simultaneously be awesome and infuriating. If I didn't need it so much, i'd probably cancel my premium subscription.

Just incredible. Programmers decide scanned documents will be ordered by s size and not by user's order.

At least the Google Drive app does scanning to PDF properly.

'by design'?  if it was by design there would be specific requirements defined (specification) as to this feature.  those requirements would (in theory) be driven by a specific need (market).  (standard product development principles).  i would have to argue that there was no definition for this 'feature' and that either the programmers made a guess or they took a convienient (easier) programming route.

 

sorry evernote, i love your product and use it everyday, but at least be honest about it and admit it that it's a bug.  I can see no use scenario that supports 'order by size'.  but i would definitely be interested in someone providing one.
