    Another great podcast, thanks. In it you spoke about further work being done to make the windows & mac versions visually the same. If this is the case can you please let us know when you will add a Tags column to list view as per the windows client. This makes it so easy to quickly scan down a list when doing work on Tag organisation etc. It has been mentioned before but no comment came back from Dave & Company as far as I am aware. viewtopic.php?f=38&t=11089&p=44333&hilit=list+view+tags#p44333

    Would like that feature from the PC version where I can handwrite a note on the iPad version. Would have to have some of the features that other handwriting iPad apps have, such as palm support (i.e. resting hand doesn't write on the note), ability to add typing text and pictures, and perhaps even recorded voice into the same note as well. That would make a great Christmas gift Thanks.

    I scan my documents one at a time so I end up with a PDF that only contains that one document. After scanning and adding to Evernote, I tag and edit the title. Then move on to the next document.

    FEATURE REQUESTS. Evernote for Mac: - Make Tags a column option in "List" view (Mac Evernote) - i.e. like in Windows version. - "Lightbox"/custom Sort option - i.e. order of notes is user selectable (i.e. by drag and drop). Thanks, -Alex

    Hey there! This command selects a specified notebook in the notebook list of the main window ("collection window") provided it's Evernote's first window (source: https://www.evernote...veloper/mac.php): set query string of window 1 to "notebook:Articles" The same method also works for stacks: set query string of window 1 to "stack:"Private stuff"" The following script fulfills the OP's demands: It makes Evernote come to the front or launch (depending on state) with a specified notebook selected. Please note that this script requires the global "Search in Evernote" keyboard shortcut to be configured in Evernote's preferences (and accordingly set in the script's source code). Please also note that the notebook/stack selection of existing collection windows might be changed. set destination to "notebook:Test" tell application "System Events" -- Let's make sure Evernote is running. If Evernote needs to be started, wait a sec! if not (exists process "Evernote") then tell application "Evernote" to activate delay (3) end if -- Now let's invoke a collection window by starting a global search. keystroke space using {option down} delay (0.5) end tell -- Sometimes it needs a moment for a collection window to be created. -- As long as no collection window exists, trying to change its query string will result in an error. -- We'll simply try again until we succeed. repeat set tryagain to true try tell application "Evernote" set query string of window 1 to destination end tell set tryagain to false on error tell application "System Events" keystroke space using {option down} end tell delay (1) set tryagain to true end try if not tryagain then exit repeat end repeat If you don't want to rely on the global search hotkey, things get kind of tricky. I particularly found the following tasks rather difficult: Make an existing collection window frontmost among a number of other Evernote windows (You can tell most applications to "set frontmost of window X to true" or to "set index of window X to 1". But Evernote [Version 3.0.4 (206275)] doesn't know the frontmost property for windows and for some reason returns an error when you try to change a window's index.) Set the collection window active (meaning: put the input focus on it) without bringing any other non-minimized Evernote window to the front. Here's the alternatives I came up with: Skimming through all Evernote windows, then bringing all non-minimized Evernote windows to the front with a collection window on top and activated. Skimming through all Evernote windows, then activating only the collection window by simulating mouseclicks on Evernote's dock icon. This method may be a little bit slower than (1). Invoking a collection window by simulating mouseclicks on Evernote's menu bar icon and the "Search in Evernote" entry, then changing the query string of the collection window. (Obviously this requires the menu bar item to be present). I wish I knew of a more elegant way to bring only the collection window to the front. Any suggestions are welcome! Anyways, here are scripts for alternative methods (1) and (2). Please note that -- just like before -- the notebook/stack selection of existing collection windows might be changed. (* (1) Skimming through all Evernote windows, then bringing all non-minimized Evernote windows to the front with a collection window on top and activated. *) set destination to "notebook:Articles" set collectionWindowTitle to "not available" tell application "System Events" if not (exists process "Evernote") then tell application "Evernote" to activate delay (3) end if end tell tell application "Evernote" repeat with ew in every window if class of ew is collection window then set collectionWindowTitle to name of ew exit repeat end if end repeat if collectionWindowTitle is "not available" then open collection window with query string destination tell application "System Events" set frontmost of process "Evernote" to true end tell else tell application "System Events" tell process "Evernote" perform action "AXRaise" of window collectionWindowTitle end tell set frontmost of process "Evernote" to true end tell set query string of window collectionWindowTitle to destination end if end tell (* (2) Skimming through all Evernote windows, then activating only the collection window by simulating mouseclicks on the Dock icon. I think this method may be a little bit slower than (1). Note: This script is just the same as the script for alternative method (1), except for the last 'tell'-block. *) set destination to "notebook:Gedächtnis" set collectionWindowTitle to "not available" tell application "System Events" if not (exists process "Evernote") then tell application "Evernote" to activate delay (3) end if end tell tell application "Evernote" repeat with ew in every window if class of ew is collection window then set collectionWindowTitle to name of ew exit repeat end if end repeat if collectionWindowTitle is "not available" then open collection window with query string destination tell application "System Events" set frontmost of process "Evernote" to true end tell else tell application "System Events" to tell process "Dock" tell UI element "Evernote" of list 1 perform action "AXShowMenu" click menu item collectionWindowTitle of menu 1 end tell end tell set query string of window collectionWindowTitle to destination end if end tell For my own use, I'd like to have icons in my dock that let me switch to specific stacks -- however, existing main windows focussing on different stacks (or notebooks) should not be affected. So if no collection window focusssing on the desired stack (or a notebook within that stack) exists, a new collection window should be opened. I'm going to modify one of above scripts, save it as an application and put it in my dock. Evaluating the note id property of existing collection windows seems to be the way to go... I'll see when I find time for this... Oh, last but not least, all code gets much shorter if you simply want to open a specific note with known URL in the collection window with Evernote selecting its parent notebook at the same time (provided the location doesn' t change). Simply copy the note link and paste it in this script: do shell script "open evernote:///view/2378xx8/sx9/c974xxef-3x2c-4exx-xcdf-1ba50d8xxx19/cxx49xxf-3xxc-4ex4-xcdf-1xxx0d827019/" tell application "Evernote" set query string of window 1 to "notebook:"Daily Inbox"" end tell In the last two script, the code got lengthy because we had to manually take care of cases where no collection window existed before we could navigate to a desired location. When opening a specific note via OSX's command "open", however, a collection window is automatically created if none exists.

    You aren't missing anything, the functionality you are looking for isn't currently available.

    I would love to see this feature available on the Mac version as well. I am using Windows at home and Mac at the office. I found it very puzzling that the feature isn't available in the Mac version, since I can't imagine that sorting by tag is conceptually much different from sorting after any other fields. I am relying so heavily on this feature that I am now using Windows XP (via Parallels Desktop) on my Mac, only to have access to sorting by tags. Other people seem to be keen on this feature too (viewtopic.php?f=30&t=23787&p=102589 , although this thread got locked for unproductive bickering).

    Just to be sure, here's the feature I'm speaking about. It's very handy (on the PC side) to be able to Sort by Tags. The following was taken from the PC version:

    thanks for responding, sbliven. I'm unclear as to what you're referring to, sbliven. What I was asking about was an actual column in the List view, similar to the Created, Updated, and Title columns. This "Tag" column would allow the Notes to be sorted by Tags.

    This is exactly the primary use case I have for a Tags column -- I rarely need to sort on the Tags column. But I often need to see what Tags have or have not been applied by looking at the entire list. And, of course, I'm sure you want to keep the Mac and Win versions consistent, right? Please just add a simple Tags column. Don't make us wait for something complex that might enhance sorting. Thanks.

    SMALL changes to TAB will give very smooth fast entry of new notes + editing of existing notes from the keyboard. NEW NOTE: - Cursor positioned in note title (no change) - Tab goes into Tags (no change) - Tab goes into Body (CHANGE: no need to go to source URL - if needed it would almost always be done by the Clipper; and waste of time to tab through all the formatting fields) - Shift-TAB does these in reverse EXISTING NOTE: - Use Search field to find some possible matches (no change) - Tab goes into list of Matches (CHANGE: no need to go through 3 other useless TABS) - Up/Down Arrow changes selection in List and selected expanded note (no change) - Tab goes into BODY either at location of match in note body, or at end of note if no match in body (CHANGE: this would be the most common path for editing existing note) - Further Tab or Shift-TAB behaves like NEW NOTE above This borrows some ideas from "Notational Velocity", fantastic Mac app. Thanks!

    I agree with tx114 and pendolino: disabling full keyboard access is not an viable option. There are lots of other applications I use (like the browser) where I want the global setting to let me tab between all controls. As I stated in another thread... There was at least one version that worked exactly like we are asking for (about the time of the UI redesign for the title, URL, and tag inputs). As usual when creating notes, I typed in the note title and tags, tabbed once instinctively, and found my cursor in the note body. I rejoiced and my faith in Evernote's UI designers was renewed. Then I upgraded to the next version and all the joy was sucked away because the old behavior was back. I love Evernote, but I shake a fist at this stupidity every time I create a new note and can't tab to the body.

    As I suggested above, turning off Full Keyboard Access (for all applications!) is not an option for users who like to use the keyboard for navigation. I really hope you'll consider a fix on the lines proposed above; I imagine it should be relatively easy (just a matter of setting the nextKeyView outlets to the appropriate controls?), and I don't see any drawbacks (one seldom sets the font before entering the note content).

    Pendolino -- thought I'd answer your question from the other thread in this one: Short answer -- There's no way that I know of to trigger Evernote to open up directly to a notebook. You can use AppleScript to retrieve the titles of every note in a notebook and create it's own list. Presumably, you could adapt the code in the other thread to allow you to select a note from that list and open up the individual notes that way. Ugly -- but it would work. Rob Lewis, Pendolino, and other Mac Users Now that the transition to new CSS-rich notes is almost done (and the Mac team has an additional senior developer on board), I think that this is the time to make your need for AppleScript improvements known.

    I'd also like to see this. I work more in my Mac than PC and dislike having to do my sorting on my Windows version. I understand the tradeoffs around first tag and sorting and would live with that over not having anything. Of course if I were more organized I would sort/file each new clipping at the time of clipping but it's easier to go back and clean up at a later time. Thanks, David
