Can. Not. Wait! Really pleased to hear a fix is on the way, as this weird behaviour has been bugging me for months. Was always surprised to get new Evernote updates, only to discover that this issue is still there.
I never got around to submitting a bug report, partly because every time I do, it turns out it's already a known issue, and partly because I figured there was no way this issue could be unknown, given how annoying it is. Just randomly spotted this topic today with an exact description of what I've been experiencing, so hopefully the days of typing text and not having it appear will soon be over!
