I'm a premium user on Evernote 6.11 (not App Store version), MacOS Sierra. How is this still a thing? This thread was started almost a year ago now. It's extremely frustrating that this issue is being ignored/not given priority.
I've cancelled my membership and won't be renewing it until this is addressed. I don't know what's going on but whether this is an issue of a broken product, a product that isn't broken but is put out by a company that refuses to/can't fix it, or a product that features irrelevant adverts to paying customers, I do know that there's no sense in continuing to pay for a premium membership so long as this annoying button is on the sidebar.
