There are 2 types of note "editors" in Evernote: - the note editor to modify any notes using rich text formatting. You can recognize it by the (...) at the beginning and at the end. - the note composer to create and modify notes using supported rich text formatting. If your note contains some formatting which can't be created with the note composer, the editor will kick-in. For instance, you can't change the font size or the font color in with the composer. It will open with the editor. With this editor, you won't be able to do every operations you can do with the composer, that includes editing bullet and cb list.
