Same - blank note list (black) - tried update (126.96.36.19929  Public [CE Build ce-1.39.4193] on Win10-pro, v1709, build 16299.192, Surface Book) - rebooted - same. My evernote db is on a permanently installed sd card as space on the SSD is limited. I have to say USB3 on the Surface sometime glitches and errors have been reported at times on the sd drive (but none found by chkdsk). It is possible this interferes with Evernotes housekeeping.
Notelist images for some notes displayed normally - for the others with black images I tried simplifying formatting. This reset notelist image to normal for some notes, flipped images to all white for others. One note had nothing but the date inserted - ie no other content - but displayed first all black in note list, then ok after simplifying formating (which I would have thought could not be simpler to start with).
CTrl-Help -> "fix selected notes" fixes the notelist black images for those notes, but some notes still display blank-white images for a while - then later fix themselves. A few blank whites persist among in the notelist. All this is confusing and undermines confidence in Evernote (even if it is Microsoft's fault). Bob
