I'm using Windows 8.1 with Wacom Intuos pen and Evernote - always the latest version. Unfortunately there's a phenomenon that is so much annoying for years. In the left panel where the lists of shortcuts, notes, etc. are to be found when clicking on any of the items, sometimes the choosen one is accidentaly being removed from the list, it dissapears.

My suggestion is:

Wouldn't it be possible to build in a "Lock left panel" option in the preferences that could be accessed with a right click in the panel area as well?

I've never seen anything in the left panel accidentally disappear. You have to right-click on it and delete it, and you'll get a confirmation.

You can move it, but you've just changed its location, maybe moving a notebook from one stack to another.

Can you be more clear on what exactly you are referring to?

I keep my shortcuts on the top toolbar, and dragging a shortcut  way down does indeed make it disappear without confirmation (though it does run the shortcut). so it is repeatable.

Not sure whether this is a bug  or a feature, maybe this topic should be moved to the Windows bug forum.

I don't know if it's a bug in Evernote or Windows - but not a feature for sure. The same symptom occured in Photoshop when clicking on any element of Tools bar  - and it was a Adobe PS bug. It might be the case with Evernote, too, perhaps. Maybe it happens only when using Wacom pen-like tools instead of a mouse or touchpad. Anyway I would be happy to find a solution.
Usually it goes like this (Oh, as it happened in this very moment!)
- There are tags and notes among my Shortcuts at the top of the left panel.
- I simply clicked on one of them with my Wacom Intuos pen (that's like a left click with the mouse)
- That choosen shortcut suddenly disappeared from the Shortcut menu (it is still there among tags, 'cos it's a tag)
- So I have to right click on it - under tags - and choose 'Add to Shortcuts' in the pop-up menu
That's all. Mysterious.
