Just chiming in that the blinking snippet is incredibly annoying. I know there are work arounds, but I've been using Evernote in a certain way for a long time and shouldn't have to change the way I work because of a UI annoyance. This needs to be fixed. Version 7.0.2 (456266 Direct)
I was OK with the contrast until the last upgrade. The whiteness is too much. If this isn't addressed, I'm going to migrate out of Evernote to something else. In the meantime, I'm trying to figure out how to revert to the old version.
