I'll bet there's a way to do this using AppleScript, but I am not a Mac user, so I don't know for sure (there's a way to do it in Windows, using the ENScript program)

Ok folks here you go:

-track where the file is on your hard drive : (ex: /Users/YourFilePath/)

-go to evernote and select the text you want your link on and press CMD+K

-enter your URL in the following format : file:///Users/YourFilePath/

-press ok

- enjoy the magic!

P.S.

I made a Mac os X service if your too lazy like me to type the "file:///" and then pasting your path

You can download this here (To install : unzip and double-click the Copy Path automator service)

So now you select the folder you want to link inside evernote then right click and select the "Copy Path" service from the drop-down menu. Open evernote and select your link text inside your note and press CMD+k (or right click +link +add...) paste your link with CMD+V and press done.

Just a quick disclaimer, this isn't officially from Evernote, nor has it been vetted or vouched for. This doesn't mean that it isn't awesome or useful, just means we can't make any claims about it. Please use your own judgement when downloading.

2 year bump! I just Googled this question again, and was led here... It took me two minutes to realize it was my own thread.

 

In any case, still seeking an answer for this – Can I create a Finder Alias on the Mac, which will open a specific Evernote Notebook (or Note)?

 

"brendant" is correct – the answer from yellowait44 was not related to my actual question.

Here's a way to do it. It's a little convoluted and only works for notes:

 

1. Select the note you want to make an alias to

2. From the Note menu, select 'Copy Note Link'

3. Launch Automator (/Applications/Automator)

4. If a new document window is not already visible, type cmd-N to create one

5. When asked to choose a type for your document, choose application

6. From the list of actions, find 'Run Shell Script' and double click it

7. In the text area of your Run Shell Script action, type 'open evernote:///view/31415...' (using the link you copied in step 2)

8. From the File menu, select Save… and give it the name and location you want

 

Now when you click your newly created application it should open your note.

I hope that wasn't too confusing.

Yeah, this doesn't work anymore, because now "copy note link" give you a link to the website, and not the custom URL to the note in the mac app. How can we get this functionality back?

Control-click on the note to bring up the context menu, hold down the option key and select "Copy Classic Note Link".

Many thanks to you, Adjusting. This is exactly what I needed, and, coupled with option clicking the note link for the classic desktop view, I am all set.

I found what I think is an easier way:

 

Steps 1 & 2 are the same as the above.

 

1. Select the note you want to make an shortcut/alias to
 
2. Right click (control click) the note, press and hold down option, select 'Copy Classic Note Link' from the Note menu 
 
3. Open Safari and past the link into the address bar, you do not have to press enter just paste it in.
 
4. Drag the icon that is to the left of the link to the desk top/folder
 
This makes a .inetloc file which is more or less just a shortcut.

Nice. That works well.
