Penultimate notes are View Only

Hi All

Been a happy EN since 2008 and everything has been working fine through multiple Mac, iPad and OS updates. I went paperless and switched to note taking on my iPad. Penultimate gives new notes a generic title (i.e. "Written MM/DD/YY, HH:MM") and I usually go in to EN and change the title to something searchable and add tags. This process has been working fine for years and I've had minimal complaints -- nothing that I couldn't workaround.

I just updated EN for Mac and synchronized some Penultimate Notes today. I was able to add tags as before but when I attempted to update the generic note title I couldn't do it. The note is marked as "View Only" and when I hover over that it states "You can't edit or share this note". I've tried to share the note to see if that would make a difference and can't find a way to revert back to the old functionality.

How can I update the titles of imported Penultimate notes? This has seriously broken my workflow - help!

NVM. Found the solution....

As in previous versions of EN, you CAN not directly change the title of an imported Penultimate note. In the latest version (see original post above), you now change it by performing the following actions:

- Click the three dots (...) next to the Share button on the top right of the EN Mac client

- Select "Note Info" menu item

- Update the "Title" field of the "Note info" dialog box that appears

- Click "Save" and the title is updated

This is 3 steps too many compared to the old method. Can this be reverted back to the previous method?

My Penultimate Notes are now appearing in Evernote as View Only. This first started happening yesterday.

I have closed down the apps and re-opened. I waited overnight, but it is still happening today.

Is there a fix for this?
