I don't think we're denigrating the product, per se. At least, I am not. I really like Evernote and am still recommending it to whomever asks. But this particular problem is really a major nuisance to me (and to so many others). I wish the Evernote folks would at least respond to this thread. Tell us you are working on it, not working on it, will work on it, will not work on it. Then we can move on, etc.
As for OneNote, I have to use that product at work. While it does work, I don't care for the interface (of course, I am admittedly biased in favor of EN). And, as far as I know, it won't work on my Android devices. I really, really, really, do NOT want to switch to another product. So I will continue to live with this EN deficiency.
