Automatic Headlines and Hotkeys


Recommended Posts

Hi! There is one thing I've always needed to do with Evernote to make my notetaking faster/more intuitive. I'd love to see automatic headlines whenever I type: ENTER, [short text], ENTER. There could be a dropdown upon hovering on the headline to turn automatic headlines on/off. It just makes it faster when I don't have to pause and select a header or adjust font size/etc., and when I skim through my notes and can see the titles for each new set of paragraphs.

Hotkeys in general for other quick adjustments would also be great!

How about markdown style (# ## ###)  

This has been implemented in the latest beta versions

Than, how to remove the headline format, and what' the shortcut?

There is no shortcut to return a header style (Large, Medium or Small) to normal text. You need to highlight the text and use the drop down menu to select "normal text".

It is possible to automate this process - I use AutoHotKey. When I type #### or 4# followed by a space, infront of a header it changes it to normal text. This is consistent with what happens if you type #. ## or ### in front.



The code for AutoHotKey (Windows only I'm afraid) is here. Basically it just cuts the text and pastes it back using "paste and match style"

#HotIf WinActive("ahk_exe Evernote.exe")
	SetKeyDelay 30
	SendEvent "+{End}^c{Home}+{End}{Del}^+v"

I'm using the following applescript on Mac, tied to a hotkey (using Alfred):

tell application "System Events"
	set activeApp to first application process whose frontmost is true
end tell
if name of activeApp is "Evernote"
	tell application "Evernote"
	  tell application "System Events"
	    key code 123 using command down
	    key code 124 using { command down, shift down }
	    keystroke "x" using command down
	    keystroke "v" using { command down, shift down }
	    key code 123
	  end tell
	end tell
end if
