(Archived) Encrypted Notes and repeated screen blanking


Recommended Posts

Why does Evernote wipe the screen inconsistently?

  • If you do a quickee cut/paste to put data into the clipboard (i.e. a complex password for insertion into another app), as in shift-delete and shift-insert, the note blanks itself when you click into another window.
  • If you perform a copy with the mouse (select the text, right click and copy from menu) the window stays available
  • If you select with the keyboard and perform a copy with the keyboard (ctrl-C) the window stays available.

I typically use the first operation because frankly I have been using computers long enough have it ingrained into me that Ctrl-C terminates the current program (it still does this in a Windows Command Prompt window) so instinctively I don't use it.


I understand why you'd want to give the ability to blank a window, but usually thats associated with a time of inactivity.  Maybe thats not practical.  But giving me a key combo to blank a window manually would be nice as an alternative to the above, which is a real usability pain in the rear.  The fact that moving away from the window blanks the screen - and EverNote is meant for use in a windowed environment where this happens all the time - seems problematic at best.


Did I miss a setting somewhere that keeps this from happening?
