I was trying to import notes from Evernote enex files, and was surprised when some (but not all) formatting was lost.

I looked at the enex file and found that this was not bolded when imported into Joplin:

<span style="font-weight: bold;">Heading</span>

Also, this scenario is handled a little bit weird: <b><br/></b> The markdown conversion is technically correct (two stars, newline, two stars) -- but the formatted visualization shows the asterisks, rather than a blank line.

Any chance the importer can be modified to handle these issues?

Hi,
I am facing the same issue.

I was trying to import notes from Evernote enex files, and was surprised when some (but not all) formatting was lost.

I looked at the enex file and found that this was not bolded when imported into Joplin:

<span style="font-weight: bold;">Heading</span>

Yes, in my case exactely all of these tags are not converted. Inside a div, if this makes any difference:

<div><span style="font-weight: bold;">Heading</span></div>

on the other hand, these are converted correctly:

<div><b>Heading</b></div

For me this is a critical issue as I often used bold text as a quick and dirty "heading" option in my evernote notes.

thanks for fixing in advance!
Jojo
