I'm struggling with the logic here... Several years since this thread started, and still Evernote for Android & PC insist on assigning a default Notebook to new notes. I found a solution to the MAC version, but I don't have a MAC. I realize I can reassign a Notebook, but the fact is that a majority of new notes go to the same Notebook, and Evernote insists on defaulting to a different Notebook that I rarely use. My primary Notebook is the only one favorited, and the only one enabled for offline sync, yet I cannot make it the default Notebook in Evernote. Really?
