I've been having the exact same problems. I'm a long time Evernote user, but since some time it's not useable anymore. I came to this community to look for alternatives or tips for getting my notes out of Evernote and moving them elsewhere. Thanks to your suggestions I've now installed Evernote legacy and I'm back to normal productivity. Seems like a huge flaw/bug... I hope they fix it. Should I report officially?
