I have some text hovering over my screen, in all my spaces, for at least the past 2 weeks. I cannot recall when this started. And, unfortunately, I do not know how to replicate it.

Several attempts to contact Evernote for support have been fruitless.

This is what the text looks like :

screenshot-2

This text is there whether I'm in a terminal window, running a VM through VMWare, or watching a movie!

I have uninstalled and quit Evernote, but I'm beginning to think this is not a problem of Evernote.

This is a 13" Macbook Air from mid-2013 running OSX Yosemite 10.10.1

  • when is the last time you restarted your computer? – dwightk Feb 11 '15 at 14:22
  • Really interesting problem, try to check this post, maybe it can help in some way. link: apple.stackexchange.com/questions/38012/… – user113327 Feb 11 '15 at 14:41
  • Have you tried logging out and then logging back in? – IconDaemon Feb 11 '15 at 15:03
  • Thank you for the suggestions. @Victor - this could help me determine what's responsible. – jackinovik Feb 11 '15 at 20:59
  • @dwightk, also a useful suggestion. I restart my computer about every 3 days! Most recently, after I upgraded Evernote to the latest version. My latest find was that if I start the computer in safe mode, the text isn't there. Now to determine which start-up service is responsible :) – jackinovik Feb 11 '15 at 21:00
