Mystery: Can't Delete or Leave a Shared Notebook

Recommended Posts

2 years ago, a teacher shared a notebook with me and a dozen students. The teacher still works here; she is the owner. For some reason, I find I can neither delete or leave the notebook. I also can't delete myself as a member of the share. Is my only solution to ask the teacher to unshare the notebook with me? I seem to remember that I could leave other shared notebooks in the past... Any ideas? Mac Desktop App vs. 6.12 beta 2.

What process are you using, and what results do you see

My process is to right-click on the notebook5995b4d1d755f_ScreenShot2017-08-17at08_20_54.png.a6543591422f359f0e10f508c119c50e.png
and select Delete Notebook

I get a confirmation box and select Remove

When I right-click, "delete" is grayed out:

And when I click on "Share notebook," I cannot delete myself from the list of shares -- the "X" is grayed out also.

Hmmn.  I'd suggest you File > Exit Evernote and restart your system.  Did you copy this notebook into your own account,  or is it still a 'live' share from another person...?

Diolch, Gazumped. I quit Evernote several times, to no effect. And yes, the notebook is still a live share from another teacher.

Dim problem.  Did @DTLow's suggestion work out?  If not,  the quickest solution might be to ask that the owner deletes you from the shares.  You could have a word with Support if that's not feasible...
