Hotkey to hide/show Evernote window



It would be very helpful if I could set a hot key to toggle the visibility of Evernote's window.

This functionality is already available in some other note-taking apps like Quiver or InkDrop. Also, some other non-note-taking apps too, like Airail or Dash.

If Evernote uses Swift as its programming language, the code for this feature would be like this:

if NSRunningApplication.current.isActive {
} else {
    options: [.activateAllWindows, .activateIgnoringOtherApps])


By the way, I found a guy who suggested the same feature in 2011 as follows:

Hi.  You correctly set this up as a votable feature request - if it has enough supporting votes it may be adopted in future.  A single tweet 9 years ago does not exactly count as support.
