Create from calendar: Strip/convert HTML from Google calendar

When creating a new note using “New Note Linked to This Event,” quite often there is simple HTML in the note or invitation.

Really, all that’s needed would be handling breaks (

    This also happens for Office 365/Exchange calendar invites as well. Unless it is text only in the body, the HTML is displayed as raw HTML.

    Any update with this? I encounter this exact problem daily.

    Hi @mekentosj, I know you guys are working on a bunch of awesome stuff, but I was curious if you had any clarity on whether this might squeeze in to the 6.1 update?

    Ah, scratch that… I realised Sam has implemented HTML parsing as part of the Evernote parsing, which made it easy, I hooked it up and it works like a charm :partying_face: Should be in the next update then after all. :smiley:
