windows Resource type for PowerPoint files? Also, emulating *.doc, etc.?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Does anyone know if there is a resource type for Microsoft PowerPoint files (PPT)? Something equivalent to the one for Excel files and a few others?:

Example resource type for Microsoft Excel files: resource:application/vnd.ms-excel

Also, is there a way around the Evernote limitation on wildcards? Currently the wildcard character aka the asterisk (*) only works as a match-all operator for the characters that precede it, for example "abc*", making search filters such as *.DOC for file-names impossible. Is there a work-around for this?

Thanks,

Robert

As a start, I searched the registry for "ppt", and found a string entry named "Content Type: whose value was "application/vnd.ms-powerpoint". Looked like a likely suspect, so I tried it in Evernote (resource:application/vnd.ms-powerpoint), and it turned up a PowerPoint attachment. I'd give that one a start.

Don't know of an wildcarding workarounds such as you are asking for,

Hello jefito,

Thanks! If you come across any other Content Type values like that, please pass them on to me. :)

Really all I did was some simple registry spelunking, and hit it lucky right off; but on Windows, that's where that stuff is going to live.

I did look at that mime list, noted that the PowerPoint entry isn't the same as the one I turned up, and didn't find the lone PowerPoint attachment that I have in my notes. Wish I understood this stuff a little bit better, I should really dig into this.

This doesn't seem to work in Evernote 5.6.x. Did the Powerpoint resource get removed? Excel works fine.

I am curious - how do you use this format to be able to isolate/remove non-text items? If I clip a web page on the Windows version I can change it to plain text by using CTRL-spacebar. However, until I do that I am unable to edit the note on the Android (KIndle Fire) or Windows Phone versions. Most of my notes that are not text are pdfs - easy to exclude those with -resource/application/pdf, but finding just text items has eluded me. Any guidance (even if "not possible") much appreciated!
