"Connect to see more" opens a blank window and block Evernote


Recommended Posts

When pasting a link to Google Docs, the hyperlink gets converted to a Google Drive link. There's no option to switch this option which some don't like. Ctrl-Z converts it back to a link. Thank God. The Google Drive box has a "Connect to see more" link which open another Window on top of Evernote. The Window open slowly. It's blank and the close button is outside of my screen. I am totally blocked from using Evernote and I have to kill the app. A totally buggy and annoying feature feature.

I am Basic and I get it. This is what it looks like.

Hmmn.  I'm on a Windows machine today,  so I hopped into a basic account to try this out - and I can confirm that clicking the blue link,  or using the 3-dots menu starts a blank white window that expands to fill two monitors (!).  I seem to remember there being a 'logging in with Google' bug flying around a little while ago and this seems related.  I'll report it* (using my Premium account) and see what the Support team say..

Before I clicked (tried both the blue link and the 3-dots menu) - this is one corner of a big screen. Excuse the moire patterns.

Clicking the green elephant - you can just see it in the second picture at top left - allows me to close the window.

* Rather than confuse everyone about the two accounts I'll just flag this post for the admins and ask them to report the bug - the details are all here anyway.

I am using two monitors and there's no way I can find to get out of this blocking top window.
Anyways, I don't need this Google Drive thing so I just hit ctrl-z after pasting the link and it reverts to a hyperlink.
