We’re just going to come out and say it: Evernote for Mac has had a history of doing funky stuff when you created text notes. There were issues with text sizes, font switching, double spacing, and a host of other small annoyances.
That’s now mostly in the past. Our latest release (version 1.4.8) fixes a number of these nagging issues.
Here’s a rundown of the text handling improvements:
- Pasted plain text will match the style of the note and properly preserve spacing.
- Hitting enter on a double-spaced line converts it to a single-spaced line.
- Undo continues to function after a note is saved.
- Plain text copies of a note now preserve lists and to-do checkboxes.
- Pasting HTML from a web browser preserves newlines from text inside <pre> blocks.
- Copying and pasting a list item within a note preserves list indenting.
- Pasted rich-text font sizes are preserved when saving and syncing.
- Cutting and pasting a line of text within a note properly preserves line endings.
- Pasting multi-line text from an HTML <textarea> in Safari preserves newlines.
- Improved handling of newlines when pasting rich-text.
This is all part of our ongoing effort to make sure you have a great experience when using Evernote.
