  1. Thanks for responding! I'm cool with looping through tags, but I can't get evernote to return any information about tags. if I say "get tags of selectedNote" (and I know the selected note has tags) it returns null. I tried looping and declaring class and a few other things, but I get error or null. If my code is correct, maybe there's a bug?
  2. I'm not sure if this is the right thread to mention this, but I'm having trouble working with tags at all via applescript. I know Evernote just now resolved an issue with "notebook" in queries, and I was really banging my head against a wall with that one. What am I doing wrong? tell application "Evernote" set selectedNote to selection set noteTags to tags of selectedNote return noteTags end tell ---> {} I know the currently selected note has tags. I've tried this so many ways, setting class as list, referring to "name of tag" etc, but I get nothing. Is this a bug?
  3. I have the most recent direct download version, and so far I don't see a change in performance (except for a couple of crashes). I, like most people, also use Dropbox, and theorize that Evernote and Dropbox may not play well together? The Evernote performance is always the worst if there is dropbox activity (why does it take 30min do download a file list?). Does Evernote re-index with every update?
  4. I love the Evernote platform, and I rely on it a great deal. I have a pretty old computer (2007 iMac) so I occasionally blame hardware, but I am a little mystified when I look at activity monitor, and Evernote is at 140% of cpu. I've never seen another process go above 100%, and it doesn't happen in response to anything I have done--It can happen in the background, perhaps on a scheduled sync. I also usually have the performance problems mentioned above, particularly when activating the application, which invariably starts with a 15s beachball. That can be really crazy making. Worse is when I begin to type a title, it beachballs and then moves the cursor to the beginning of the line. I have a lot of notes. I'm sure the heavy indexing that makes the awesome search possible takes a lot of juice. Should I expect performance to suffer as a result of creating a lot of notes (i.e. using Evernote)? Are there steps I can take to improve performance?
  5. 9 months later I am also curious about whether or not the ability to assign a tag to selected notes via applescript is supposed to work, as I can't get it to either. I get an error message.
