Partially resolved, at least on HTC Desire HD: I was initially unable to paste text that was copied from email into a new Evernote note. After reading the replies here, I typed 1 word (anything) into this new text field, then did a long press where the cursor was blinking got the haptic feedback and the usual pop-up options that allowed pasting of my copied text. Then I just had to go back and delete that 1st unwanted word . As was mentioned earlier by another poster, it's important to press-&-hold where the blinking cursor is; pressing anywhere else on the field doesn't work. Evernote needs to fix this, & also allow pasting into new blank text note fields without the "type any 1st letter" workaround.
