Can't edit a private note which was created on desktop

An encrypted text block has to be permanently decrypted in order to edit the text. That's just the way it works. It isn't great and there are many conversations in the forums about the indadequacies of Evernote encryption.  A much better route is to use the built in encryption functions of an external file format such as Windows, PDF etc or use an external encryption program such AxCrypt. I'm sure others are available but I know that AxCrypt works across platforms.

This is not the way it used to work in previous versions of Evernote desktop application.  Used to be able to edit directly in the encrypted text box which is much more convenient than decrypting just to edit the data.
