When I invoke the contextual menu via the keyboard command, and use the arrow keys to navigate items in the list, Evernote will launch if it's not running.
This happens before I even reach the Evernote list item.
I wish I could just remove the Evernote integration completely. I have the app installed only to maintain my old note database. I no longer use the service but need to keep the app on my computer for that.
If I invoke the contextual menu via the mouse, this does not occur.
Evernote is now removed completely.
