  1. Windows 10 user, using a portrait screen monitor with the taskbar on the left, alongside the landscape monitor where Evernote is supposed to spend all of its life.  When I start Evernote, the Do you want to create a note box pops up, HALF UNDER the taskbar. Luckily, the half that shows has the expand button to make it go away and for Evernote to show up. If it's first thing after a sleep or power off, Evernote emerges along with the other half-dozen programs I load at startup at the top of the portrait monitor, but that's a Microsoft ***** up, not Evernote.

    But this popup window is Evernote's issue and it is inexcusable. First, it's not something that you can turn off. Secondly, just for giggles, I thought I'd move the taskbar to the right side of the monitor and attempt to open Evernote. Do you know you can't get rid of the popup? Until you move the taskbar elsewhere. Why would the engineer and manager who thought this up and then approved it, NOT HAVE THE POPUP SHOW SCREEN CENTRE?????

    Yes, I'm one of seventeen people in the whole world (one passed away recently), who uses a taskbar on the left. Since SCREEN CENTRE or MONITOR CENTRE is a setting for every programming language known to mankind, it's a SINGLE CLICK TO ELIMINATE THIS ISSUE. Evernote seems to take two steps backward with every single step forward. I LIKE OPTIONS. Others here probably like this popup. And if so, you should have it. Others might just ignore it. And there there is the few who hate it. I'm in that crowd. It's like the glowing text on your settings screen for your account. Sigh.

    Now, somebody here will take the wind out of my sails and point to where it IS an easy option to turn off. I Thank You for doing that in advance.

    Please be safe this holiday season.

  2. All of a sudden, my Evernote (windows 7x64 Pro) has become an annoying sort of Read-Only. I can type text, whether in a new note or an existing note. But I can't paste graphics... which was the first clue. I shut down the Clipboard manager I use (M8's Spartan), and recreated the graphics in my screenshot program (GreenShot) and then in Gadwin PrintScreen when THAT failed. I pasted it from IrfanView. That failed. The only thing it would accept was text. And no deletions don't take.

    And then it wouldn't save the changes/edits/additions. Nothing is taking.

    I re-started Evernote and it came up pointing to a note I last looked at a week ago. I checked for notes in the interim. There ARE notes that I created yesterday and the day before. I've hit a little dry stretch as those truly ARE the only two notes I entered in the last week. But they ARE there.

    But I can't edit them. Or add a new note that is anything but blank. To Evernote's credit, it doesn't keep adding blank notes. The blank one shows up at the top of any notebook or sub-notebook. When I go to All Notes, no blanks show. 

    Any Ideas??? Thanks in advance for your help, GM

    Oh, and one other nit that may or may not be involved in this. For about the last nine months, when I restart my computer and Evernote auto-starts, NONE of the notes are available. All the interface, all the notebooks are in the tree, but no notes. I shut down the tray icon, restart the tray icon and that fixes things. I DID try the out and back in with this, to no avail.
