Request: Escape Key should *not* close note window in Evernote for Windows Requests Posted June 7, 2019 10 hours ago, DavidPierson said: Evernote behaves *exactly* the same as Outlook. Why are you not complaining to Microsoft about Outlook then? Outlook closes an email on Escape, but this doesn't affect the main window. Precisely as Evernote have implemented it. No it does not With a read-only window, yes (an existing email). But once you are in write-mode (composing a new email), pressing Escape pops up a "Are you sure?" dialog. And that's exactly the point - pressing escape when editing is a common operation. Especially in MS programs, where shortcut operation these days (as compared to the 90's/00's) are multi-key operations (as with VI/Emacs/whatever).
