I can reproduce the issues with those steps as well running v188.8.131.5227 on Win10. How can this issue have persisted for months without be patched?? One other note; even if I don't actually edit the note because the focus goes away, Evernote thinks it was edited and tries to sync the note.
Many times, when I click on the editing area to type, I'll see the cursor but when I start typing nothing happens. I have to click on the editing area again before it will work. Has anyone experienced this? Any solutions?
