I was able to just fine. I just re-downloaded 5.0.7 from the (here) and signed in with my Evernote username, then it synced to my account downloading all my notes into that version of the program, took only a few minutes (it might take more if you have a significant amount of notes)
I also would like the old view back. As someone who works with Evernote only taking up half of my horizontal screen the new view is just not useable at all. Will be reverting back to the older version until this is fixed.
