After a half dozen support emails got evernote to confess that this is a bug: Dear Valued Customer, We apologize for the inconvenience, however it appears there is currently a bug causing this.It affecting note with image. We appreciate you taking the time to send us this error. We have filed an internal bug report with the QA team lead. She will classify and fix the bugs in the order determined by the project Lead. Unfortunately this is not something I can fix for you at this time. Once again, we apologize for the inconvenience. Thanks for making Evernote a better product, Miguel Evernote Support Hopefully a bug fix will be released soon as this really kills some of the core functionality of me using this as my filing system for everything!
