Selected Test Results

What works

  • Syncing
  • Managing notes and notebooks
  • Tables, lists, font effects, search, tags
  • Changing view settings
  • Changing some of the options
  • Checking for updates (but updating not)

What does not

  • Note titles are not rendered in the Note Panel. You can still edit them and they're visible in the Note List
  • EvernoteClipper process doesn't get terminated when exiting Evernote
  • Maybe 25% of the times when starting Evernote the process stays at 75% of my CPU usage and the window never appears
  • When switching back from another desktop, Evernote loses focus (Maybe also related to KDE Plasma)
  • Tray icon is a separate window application (KDE Plasma bug)
  • Sometimes handling text and input become weird (has to do with window focus), which is fixed by switching focus to the menubar and back (ALT x 2 key will do)
  • In recent versions updating does not succeed (previously it did; unsure whether it's wine or Evernote version change)


What was not tested

  • Audio note
  • Ink note
  • Webcam note
  • Screenshot
  • Sharing
  • Changing all of the options
  • Reminder function
  • Present function
  • Import/Export
  • Printing

Stacks not displayed correctly
by Felix on Tuesday December 15th 2015, 6:41

has anybody experienced Problems with Stacks (one or more notebooks aggregated in another notebook) in Evernote ?

E.g. Evernote Web display following structure:
- myStack
-- mySubNotebook1
-- mySubNotebook2

What is displayed in Evernote Client in Wine:
- myStack
-- mySubNotebook1

- myStack
-- mySubNotebook2

which is quite confusing at first glance.

I encountered this with all Wine Versions including 1.8.xx RC

If confirmed i can provide further infos und report this as bug

Hi, I encountered the same problem (wine 1.7.55). you can try to fix all notes (control+click on help menu, fix all notes) and then restart evernote
Import Folders do not work

Checkboxes not showing
by Marco Ferretti on Thursday August 27th 2015, 3:53
Just tried on wine 1.7.5, check-boxes in notes are not showing (looks like a broken image link on internet explorer). Any advice would be greatly appreciated

tried to go back to wine 1.6: same behavior, but tray icon works on unity
Smooths Font
by Eduardo Duca on Saturday June 27th 2015, 11:04
To whom is having trouble with fonts, just install Tahoma2 and SmoothFonts, you should be fine (same fonts and resolution as in windows)
Native riched20 might be needed
by Robert Munteanu on Tuesday March 3rd 2015, 2:27
As of wine 1.7.36 if you don't see text in the search box and note titles you should use native riched20:

winetricks -q riched20

by Robert Munteanu on Thursday May 7th 2015, 2:37
This is no longer necessary since Wine 1.7.42
Font smoothing and connectivity
by K. Hampf on Monday February 2nd 2015, 14:06
I tried using Evernote on PlayOnLinux and Wine 1.7.35 and my results were that using 32-bit wine from PoL works but font smoothing is impossible to get going and using PoL 64-bit 1.7.35 is smoothed but unable to use GNUTLS so Evernote cannot connect. However using Archlinux own 64-bit wine 1.7.35 gives me both connectivity and smooth fonts!
