Unable to paste JSON text

Recommended Posts

Posting in this thread as it's better to separate this problem from the thread about the 6.0.13 release.


I'm seeing this problem too and i'm pretty sure I was able to paste json in the past. It doesn't matter if the json is pasted in from a web page, or if it's sanitised by pasting into a text editor and then pasted into Evernote. Nothing comes up at all when attempting to paste.


Edit: Interestingly, styled json will paste, eg if the json has colors and so forth. But plain unstyled text json will not. Example, go to http://www.bodurov.com/JsonFormatter/paste in your json, format it, then paste it back into Evernote. It will work.


Pasting JSON into Evernote Web also works.


This is a pretty big problem as it means I can no longer store my json snippets in Evernote.


Running on Evernote Mac 6.0.16

Would love to see this work as well. I sometimes end up having to put JSON in a Github gist and then include the link of the gist in my Evernote note. It works but prevents me from searching and finding certain json later via search.

Reported the bug. Evernote was able to recreate it and now it's fixed as of v6.1.

Thanks Evernote!  :lol:

Hello ...

I spend a lot of time on Linux and, therefore, using Evernote Web.

When I paste JSON into a Evernote Web document, all leading whitespace is removed; which is problematic.

The pasted JSON is already formatted (I cut it from a pretty-printed Python session or from within a vi(1) terminal session).

How to get around this issue?

Thank you! :)
