Hi, I too have the problem with Helper. I'm using 5.5.2, with Mac 10.9.4 on a new MacBook Air. The helper stopped working properly last week. (Have been using Evernote for 3 years, and reply on the ability to clip arbitrary content.) Upon clipping content and clicking "save to evernote," the helper freezes on my screen. It doesn't transfer the material to a new evernote note nor does it allow be to cut and past the clipping from the dropdown window. It just hangs. Seems similar to many of the other posters' issues. has this been resolved? why did it suddenly happen? any alternatives to quick note/helper?
