Encrypted note won't decrypt with password in Evernote for Mac Issues (Versions 7.14 and under) Posted November 16, 2016 @deaddowney, here's the (really stupid) resolution: use the browser to copy the text from your encrypted note once you've entered the password. now go over to your evernote installation and create a new note, pasting the contents of the encrypted version from your browser. encrypt the new note and delete the old one. (be sure all the contents from your originally encrypted note are intact before deleting!) now the decryption will work in both your browser and the evernote program. GEEZ. REALLY....????????????
