mac Version 5.7.2, Mac app, text wrap - text continues to the right (off the screen)

Recommended Posts

Purpose: Need help fixing a problem.


Version: 5.7.2 for Mac




I just upgraded my Evernote Mac app to version 5.7.2.


After the upgrade, I noticed a problem with two of my recently-created notes: Text continues to the right off the page (so I have to scroll to the right to see it). I have not seen this problem in the Evernote Mac app before. 


The two recently-created notes that have the problem are nearly identical in format to about 10 other notes that I also created recently. However, those 10 other notes don't have the problem.


In all the notes mentioned above, I use bulleted lists and have text in various font sizes, ranging from 13 to 36.


I tried to fix the problem by selecting all the text in one of the affected notes, and then clicking Format > Simplify Formatting. After I did that, all the text in the note became font size 13. However, the problem still remained.


This is as much detail as I can think of. 


Does someone know why this issue is occurring and how to fix it? The end result I need is to be able to view all text within a note by simply scrolling up and down - not needing to scroll to the right.


My final test: I just copied the text I just wrote in this forum post and pasted it into a new note. The note looks fine and does not have the problem.

One thing to check for is if you have any urls that are longer than the page width pasted as text. If you do, they will break the wrapping function.
