I could not agree more!!! I too just ran into this, can't believe it's still not fixed. I've been ready to jump ship from Evernote for a while, mostly due to their being "arrogantly resistant", unfortunately they're still the best thing going. Very frustrating when you pay for a product. I'm still on the lookout for something better, and will take my business elsewhere if/when I ever find it.
Don't get me wrong, I like EverNote, but it's ridiculous how unresponsive they are to simple feature requests such as this...dating back to 2012, seems like every time I run into something that I would like to be able to do with EN I Google it, and there are a lot of other people out there with the same request but it always falls on deaf ears @ EN.
