  1. Hi all, I've been having the same problem, using Evernote 5.0.5 on Mac OS 10.6.8 - when I click on the information popover, the Location field is greyed out (as is everything else!) and can't be edited when I try to click on it (unlike every other field, which turn into white text-boxes when I click on them). It's not to do with privacy/location settings, as it asks for permission for new notes, and successfully adds it automatically; it seems to be a problem with adding the location manually. The good news is I have managed to find a solution; the bad news is it is very round-about and uncharacteristically disappointing for Evernote - I wonder if this is actually a bug. I've posted this on another thread, but thought I'd cross-post here in case anyone is still struggling. The solution is to log into the Evernote website and change the location of the note through that, not through your app on your computer. You then need to click the pencil icon in the top right-hand corner of the note you want to add a location to. Next, click 'Show Details'. Finally, click 'Add Location'. Unfortunately, it's still not that simple - it will only accept the location in the form of Latitude and Longitude numbers; to do these, go to Google maps, find the location you want to use, right-click on the map and select 'What's here?' from the menu that appears, and the latitude and longitude will appear! All this is from a wonderfully helpful post here (and not anywhere that I could see on the Evernote discussion boards, after a quick glance!): http://www.gordonmeyer.com/2012/01/how-to-change-the-location-data-of-an-evernote-note.html Cheers - I hope that's some help.
