I use a masterlist of urgent jobs in a single note, and would like to sort that list. Is it possible?

No; sorting note contents is not supported by Evernote    
My work-around is to use a third party product/editor to sort

There's a feature request posted at how-to-sort-the-text-within-a-note/

how do I add Services to Evernote?

  1. Download the WordService app at https://apps.apple.com/us/app/wordservice/id899972312?mt=12
  2. Access Services at Apple > System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts 1681957290_ScreenShot2020-09-14at3_53_44PM.png.fae382273d9a77c580e64518326b37dd.pngand check the services you want active

  3. In Evernote, select text. right-click > Services

DTLow, many thanks 🙂 I already have Wordservice on my mac and when I use it I get the attached alert.

After about 10 secs, the list does sort, so I'm on my way - although I lose all my formatting and checkboxes so will have to adapt my design

cheers, very helpful! 🙂

I have no memory of downloading it. Is it possible that when I trialled Devonthink a few years ago, it was downloaded then as part of the install package?

Ill install from the app store, and if that causes a problem, I'll unistall devonthink

I couldn't find a way to reply directly to you here, so I'll try this.

I'd like to sort a checklist alphabetically, checked on the Evernote site, plus Googled if that was possible. That led eventually to your post here. I have now, as of a few hours ago, the latest Evernote for Mac, v10.7.6. 

I downloaded and installed WordServices from the App Store. I'd also read this info from Apple about using Services: https://support.apple.com/guide/mac-help/use-services-in-apps-mchlp1012/mac 

When I select all that's in my checklist, go to the top menu in Evernote or the Apple icon, I can't find any choice for Services. (The info in the Apple link says where to look for Services.) Control-clicking on the highlighted selection (even with just words not in a checklist) doesn't offer the options of WordServices.

Help, please?

The latest version for the Mac is 10.16, released yesterday.

You can download it from the EN web site (or from the AppStore, but I always recommend the direct download).

I don’t know whether it solves your issue, but at least you will be up to date with your client. I am currently travelling iPad only, so no way I can try.
