  1. Hey @Bob @ WFBI , great to see someone else that thinks this idea might be useful Hopefully someone from Evernote thinks the same.
  2. Hi @Nick L., I thought that would be the case. Do you think this might be a new feature of Evernote in the future? That would be great. Anyway, thank you so much. Rui
  3. Hello everyone, I was wondering if it's possible to search the contents of a note, like a PDF, for example, using OSX built-in search Spotlight. I am able to find notes by their title and written content, but I never get any matches for words that I know are in a specific PDF inside a note. I know that Evernote does OCR for PDFs, so I assumed it somehow shared this information with Spotlight, as I get matches when I search inside of Evernote, but apparently it doesn't. Or am I missing something? Thank you so much.
  4. Hello everyone, When I clip an article from a website using the "Simplified Article" option, it doesn't match my chosen dafault font in Evernote. I'm almost certain that it wasn't always like that, the imported text would be converted to the default font selected in the Preferences. Can someone confirm this? And if so, why would they change it and, more important, how can I make it so that when I clip an article, it sticks to the font I chose? I hope this makes sense. Thank you so much.
  5. Hi DTLow, Thanks for your input. I'm not sure what you mean by "so highlight the text and a keyboard shortcut to generate the tag". To me, this function would be quite useful, as I'm using it already with a third party app that generates text that I copy paste from Evernote. I can understand that it's not for everyone, but I would love to see a function like this built into Evernote. Have a nice day!
  6. Hi CalS, Thank you for participating. I see your point but the Word Cloud function, at least as I see it, wouldn't create tags on its own, it would simply show the user the most used words in the note. The user would then make of it as he pleases. In my system, I rarely pick more than a couple new tags out of each new note, but I do tend to find that sometimes I would have missed them otherwise. Again, I can see your point regarding search, but at least for my work, I tend to come across some long, long texts that I usually never read entirely, but simply browse and read some parts that I consider essential, so it's common to miss out some important stuff that, although not relevant for the work I am doing at the moment, might be important for future research. So having that note cataloged with those extra Tags might be important in the future. At least for me, I can see some potential in having such a system implemented into Evernote. I know it won't be easy to get it, as that usually requires some user base support for the idea, but hey, at least it's out there Have a nice day!
  7. Hi everyone, I'm really surprised no one suggested this yet, as I think it would work great as a rough Tag suggestion pool. The idea would be to have Evernote scan each note and generate a Word Cloud (by number of times a word appears in the text, pdf, etc.), from where we would be able to pick words to add as Tags for said note. I have been testing this using a third-party word cloud generator online and it works beautifully; even when none of the words are exactly what I want for my Tags, it always gives me great suggestions for Tags I would otherwise never include in that note. I hope someone else sees the potential in this and maybe someone at Evernote does to Thank you for listening.
  8. Thank you so much guys. I will take some time during the weekend to really look this through. Lots of options to consider
  9. @JMichaelTX Thank you for the input. I've found some scripts to duplicate Notes, indeed, but none that can duplicate Notebooks with Notes inside. And that's what I meant. Do you know of any? @DTLow Thank you, but this solution doesn't quite do the job either, or at least I wasn't able to achieve what I need. The .enex file sits on my desktop, but when I double click it, it creates the notes in a special Notebook for imported notes. Did I miss something? Thanks a lot for the help.
  10. I use this "feature" everyday, because I constantly need to replicate a "template" Notebook containing template notes inside. So I would either like to see a Duplicate Notebook feature, or a Template Creator, with the ability to replicate custom notes and notebooks. Among a few other things, this is what still makes Evernote only Excellent, when it could be Perfect But that's probably just me. Thanks for listening!
  11. Hello everyone, I've been using the Business Card scan a lot more lately, but unfortunately, every time I scan a new card, I get into some trouble regarding phone numbers. I guess this is due to the predefined phone number convention that is implemented. I'm sure this works perfectly for U.S. phone/cell numbers, but it doesn't quite work for how other countries type their numbers. For example, here in Portugal a cell phone number looks something like this "960906069". When I scan a card containing this number, I get a Mobile field that looks like this "96 090-6069", which is not anywhere near how we type such numbers. Same goes for landline phone numbers, which should look like "275725572", but show up like this "(275) 725-572". I have tried editing the results, but even manually, I can't seem to fix them. Anyone knows how? Or maybe someone from Evernote that could add a feature request to set phone number conventions for how other countries type their phone numbers? Thank you so much!
  12. I came to the forum today with hope that someone had already asked about this. And guess what, you did Let's hope that this means way more integration features for Evernote in iOS.
  13. Hi everyone, Sorry if the title is a bit confusing. I have managed to set up rules in Apple Mail that send certain messages from the app into Evernote, automatically, according to some rules. It works just fine, except for the part that I always end up having to tag each note and send them to their corresponding notebooks. I know that, if I want to add a note to Evernote using email, I can manually set both the notebook, using @ before the notebook name, and the tags, just by adding # before each tag on the email message Subject. What I would like to know is if any of you know how to build a script that automates this process. I mean, when I build the rule in Apple Mail, there's the option to add a script, so I guess it would be possible to create one that tells the app to set the Subject with the @Notebookname and #Tagname for that rule. You think this is possible? Thank you so much! Rui
  14. The only thing that's even better than Evernote is the Evernote community itself It worked. I have an iCloud account, so I couldn't use the Gmail/IFTTT automation, but the rules in Apple mail do the trick perfectly! Thanks a lot guys!
  15. Helo everyone, I was wondering if and how would one automate the process of importing certain emails from Apple Mail into Evernote. My idea is to import, for example, all Apple Store receipts as individual notes into Evernote, but I wasn't able to figure out a way to do it. I mean, not the ones I already have in my inbox, but the ones to come. Some sort of automation to do this. Maybe it's right in front of my eyes and i just can't see it. I thought I could do it with IFTTT, but no. Then I went into Automator, but wasn't able to figure out if this was doable. I mean, I can just manually drag every new receipt from Mail into Evernote, but if this were to happen automatically, it would be awesome. I figure this must involve some sort of filtering or something like that, but I just can't think of a way. Maybe someone already cracked this one and has a system that does this. Would you mind sharing it? Thank you so much. Rui
  16. Indeed. Individual protection for notebooks, along with (extended) multi-level organization and somewhat advanced word processor features, are all in my top requests to make Evernote even better. Sorry to introduce these in the topic, but I write a lot, and I can't wait to ditch Word and Pages and just do all my writing in Evernote, making use of its information-research-gather-sketch power, all in one place. That will be heaven!
  17. Hello everyone, I went through the topic list and didn't find anything about this, so I gues it's a non existent feature. And in my opinion, one that would be a plus to the already fantastic app that is Penultimate. I'm talking about Password Protection for individual notebooks, of course. I have a few notebooks, for work, for personal use, etc. Some of them are just grocery lists, things to-do, you name it. But others contain sensitive material for work, or even the ones I use as a journal, which I would very much prefer to have protected. Yes, I could just password protect Penultimate, which I do, but when I'm out with clients, and need to take a quick note in my general notes notebook, I need to unlock the iPad password protection, then open Penultimate and unlock it too. It would be really good to have Penultimate unlocked at all time, and have only specific notebooks protected instead. Does this make sense to anyone else? Or am I just being picky? Thanks for listening. Evernote Penultimate
  18. Really cool of you I will take some time to dive into it and will let you know how it went. Many thanks.
  19. Hi there Kirby Krieger, That could actually work. I wouldn't mind buying Keyboard Maestro, but I'm not exactly sure how would I use the info you shared. I assume you'd have to create some sort of action inside Keyboard Maestro, right? Would you mind explaining how you go about doing that? Or if you already have something like this in your computer, could you share it as a file I could import to Keyboard Maestro? Either way, thank you so much for your help.
  20. Hi ScottLougheed, I've managed to create an Apple Script that does just that, really similar to step #4 that you mentioned. I even assigned a keyboard shortcut that will copy a list of links of the selected files at a given moment. That solves half of the puzzle. It creates the links in text format, but there's no way (at least one that I know of) to make those into links from Evernote to the actual files. Unless you do it one by one, I haven't found a way For now I'm doing it a different way, using parts of that technique: I select the files in the Finder press Cmd+C create a new Text (regular, not rich text) document in TextEdit press Cmd+V select the whole text using Cmd+A press Cmd+C open a new or existing note in Evernote press Cmd+V type an extra line with something like "Watch" create a link from that word to the folder containing the files It's not perfect and it takes a few steps, but for now it does the job. It lists the files, which makes them searchable in Evernote, and I can link from there to the folder containing the files. I wish the good people of Evernote could come up with an easier way to do this. Thanks for your help
  21. Hello to you all, Does anyone know of a way to drag a file from the Finder to an Evernote note and make it a link to the file, not the actual file? I know I can link a word or a picture in a note to a file, that's not what I'm looking for. Let's say I have a list of video files from a tutorial. I'd like to catalog those video files titles inside an evernote note. I know I can right down all the names in a list and then link them to each of the files manually, but that takes a lot of time, and I was wondering if anyone knows of a faster way to do this. p.s.: I tried Symbolic Links and Aliases, but neither of those worked Thank you so much!
  22. Hi gazumped. That one I know about But what I meant was to have a command to make the highlited words (matches) in a particular note, into links to another note. Maybe I didn't quite explain myself. Let's say I search for Leo Tolstoi. I get back results that are Note Titles and also all the matching terms inside each note that correspond to the search. Let's now say that I want to turn all those matching highlighted words or combinations of words inside a note into links to a particular Note that I previously created about Leo Tolstoi. That's what I meant. I hope it makes sense. Thanks a lot for you help.
