Upgrade from 5 to 6 Causes Tuncation of Notes

Recommended Posts

During the upgrade from 5 to 6, longer notes are truncated.  Seems to be about 9KB or 254 lines (One byte length?)

Had to restore an old backup in version 5 to recover my long notes.

Looks like there is an issue even selecting all, and copying that it will only copy 255 lines from a note in version 5 will go into a clipboard.  Not sure about version 6 yet.

I was able to work around it by selecting edit and copying out portions of the Note into a notepad until I had the final complete note that I then saved into text file.  I was then able to copy the text from the file and paste it into version 6.  All I can say, darn good thing I had backups.

 

BTW, version 6 does not have a right click menu in a note to even copy, select all, etc.  If I need to copy a port of the document I can still select what I want and press ctrl+c.  Version 6 also does not seem to have the 255 line limitation.  I have to edit the note in order to using select the document using the mouse and scrolling, ctrl+c, then paste will give me the whole note.  Selecting with the mouse and scrolling does not work unless you edit the document.  This is with the Linux version.  Not sure if the Windows version has this same behavior or not.

Hey @Guno,

Sorry for the trouble you are going through.

We have fixed some issue and release a beta version of Enpass v6.1. It would be a great help if you can try the beta version of Enpass and let me know if the problem persists.

Thanks for your co-operation.

Hi @Anshu kumar,

Just tried with 6.1.0 (407) on Linux; Looks like the max length of a note is about 20 kb. I've got some notes that are larger than that (added with v5), but I cannot really edit them anymore in v6 because the text doesn't fit in the input field.

Not sure what the max length of a note used to be in v5, but imho it should be at least the same in v6. 

regards,

Guno

20KB is too small.  Should be much larger.  Think if someone was writing a manuscript and wanted to keep it as a note.  Please increase this to something like 20MB.

Hey @Guno

Apologies for the trouble. We've released a couple of updates since this issue. Could you update the app to the latest version and let us know if you're still encountering the same issue with the app?

Thanks.

Hello @Garima Singh,

Yes, the problem still persists in recent versions.
I cannot enter more than about 20kb of text in the Notes field. Not on the Linux app v6.3.3 (601), and not on the Android app v6.4.5.368.

Back in version 5, this was possible.

 

Bye,
Guno

Hey @Guno

Thanks for writing back.

I would like to share that adding the large notes will impact the performance of the app that's why we have limit the length of notes field. If you want to add more than 20Kb text, then you can write in any text editor and attach the same in Enpass. However, you request has already been forwarded to the concerned desk.

Thanks.

We needed to edit the text on a regular basis.  So putting it in a text document and attaching it is not the same.  It would also be nice to have a bit more advanced editing in the text editor as well.
