    Kindle "My Clippings" to Evernote

    DALEYKLIPPINGS UPDATE: OSX Packages Available Going Forward DaleyKlippings has long been available in a Windows (32-bit) installer and Windows (32-bit) portable distribution. Several Mac versions were provided by the community, but support was sparse. To ensure that OSX users could get reliable support and upgrades for the program, I spent the time (and dealt with the headaches) to figure out how to package the App for OSX. From this point forward, OSX versions of the software should be available for every version. This newest version includes all of the recent improvements to the software: Enhanced support for non-English language usersNative CSV Import/ExportCustom settings are now stored in a User's Application Data folder (except for portable installation)Custom settings are preserved between upgradesEnhanced patterns including additional software versions and samples for non-English language usersAll versions can be downloaded from the DaleyKlippings download page. Source code available on Git (instructions on the website).
  2. I - for one - can't even figure out how to use the article clipper now that this feature is gone. No amount of clicking or button presses select the desired region for me. I didn't think anything could make me reconsider Evernote... but a completely non-functional web clipper would certainly do it. PLEASE map something... I vote for CTRL + arrow keys (currently unused and a trivially easy transition for advanced users). Please map the up and down arrows as well so we don't have to remember to press and unpress the CTRL key.

    windows (Archived) Bugs or Inconsistencies in the Interface

    I am able to remove tags from a note by clicking on the 'x'. I just confirmed that it isn't working for me. What version are you using? Perhaps it's fixed in a beta and I'm using the last Public release. If you are using 4.6.1.7860, what OS? Naturally, I can screen capture if there isn't an obvious reason why my system is behaving differently.

    windows (Archived) Bugs or Inconsistencies in the Interface

    One more to add to the list F3 when selecting multiple notes When selecting a single note, F3 triggers "Click to add tag..." The same UI option exists when multiple notes are selected, but the F3 shortcut does not work.
  5. I've run into several (usually minor) bugs in the interface that I wanted to bring to your attention. I scanned the section and didn't see any of these mentioned previously. For reference, my platform is: Win 7 64 bit Evernote 4.6.1.7860 The specific issues are: Moving Tags With Children Start with tags A, B, C, and D. Tag A has subtags A1, A2, and A3, Tag B has subtags B1, B2, B3 and Tag C has subtags C1, C2, and C3. If you drag A onto D, the subtags are moved properly (stay as subtags). If you click on A, ctrl-click B (to highlight both), and drag to D, subtags are moved correctly. However, if you click on A, shift-click on B, then drag the highlight to D, the children of A (A1, A2, and A3) do not remain children of A. Instead, they become children of D. Similarly if you select A, shift-select C (also including , then drag to D, the children of A and B are both "lost" and become children of D. My interpretation is that the the shift-click is selecting all items between A and C -- including children -- and moves them. The interface should only affect tags at the *current level* in the hierarchy and trigger a move on them. [*]Removing Tags When you mouse-over a tags, it shows an (X) on the right end of the tag. This implies that clicking the X (or perhaps the tag entire) should remove the tag. It does not. As a fall-back, you can right click on visible tags and select the "remove" option. However, tags that are not normally visible on the screen (that can only be accessed using the down arrows) do not respond to a right click and cannot be removed this way. I'm aware that you can go the long way around with a Ctrl-Alt-T but tag behavior should be standardized. [*]Adding Tags Create a new note. Click on the "Click to add tag..." area. Add a tag and press enter. The tag is added and your cursor is placed in the region to add a new tag. Repeat this process until the area is full. The last time you hit enter, there is no space for a new tag, but it automatically pops up the "Add tags" window. This is a continuation of the previous behavior. However, if you hit enter from the add tags window, the window doesn't pop back up. This strikes me as inconsistent behavior if I'm expecting to type a tag, hit enter, and type a new tag. The precise length of a tag (i.e. whether or not it causes the UI to run out of space) shouldn't change the UI behavior. One alternative is to prevent the tag-chainning behavior in the regular UI. This won't reduce the power of the UI since multiple tags can be entered if they're separated by a comma.

    (Archived) Request - "Add Tag" Button/Icon

    I agree that it makes sense that the space bar toggles the checkbox in the list (as it is typical windows behavior). Of course, that doesn't change the fact that it requires a bunch of extra clicks to highlight/add the items I want in that view (unlike F3). In addition, I don't get an autocomplete if I type anywhere else in that window... the "add a new tag" in particular. Of course, I don't expect a box that says "add a new tag" to autocomplete because it sounds like it should be literally creating a new tag. Where do people think it *should* happen? In any case, I for one would have appreciated a menu item that informed me of the F3 shortcut. If I had not posted my suggestion here, I certainly wouldn't have known about its existence.

    (Archived) Request - "Add Tag" Button/Icon

    I agree that typing in the Ctrl-Alt-T window jumps you down the page... but not if you have something past a space bar. For example, I have several philosophy keywords: Sensation Sensation - Data Type Sensation - Innateness Sensation - Objectiveness If you type s-e-n-s-a-t-i-o-n-<space> ... the space toggles the check box rather than letting you dig further down the list. While I could tag these items as both Sensation and Innateness/Objectiveness, I think it will create more rather than less headache later. I want to nest objectiveness under both sensation and other topics in the tag hierarchy. I can't do this if I use the same "objectiveness" tag for different topics. As I have them, however, the Tag searcher will let me find all of the tags that include "objectiveness" if I ever wanted/needed to.

    (Archived) Request - "Add Tag" Button/Icon

    Thanks for the clarification. I didn't see the F3 shortcut anywhere in the inteface and that's what I really needed. Perhaps you could add an item to the Note menu (the natural place to look) that shows the shortcut. I'd call it "Add Tag" while the existing Ctrl-Alt-T is really more of a "Manage Tags" option. I find the Ctrl-Alt-T option, while visitble in the Note menu, far less useful since I have tons of tags and it doesn't autocomplete.
  9. I have more tags than the interface can show so I get the down arrows to expand and see additional tags. It appers I also must expand this area to add a tag. Since I'm adding lots of tags, these extra clicks are extremely cumbersome (I'm going to try and get used to the keyboard shortcut). Can you add a "+" icon to the left of the current tags (right of the tag icon itself) to expedite adding tags when the list is too long to display?

    Ebook Reader Advice

    I had the same problem. I especially wanted each note in kindle as a separate note in Evernote. I found a program online (Klippings, not to be confused with Klippings Kollector) that did almost everything I needed but had tons of bugs and needed some extra features. Fortunately, the code was open source so I was able to make some singificant upgrades and have packaged it into a Windows installer (OSX and Linux not yet available). You can read the thread here: http://discussion.ev...vernote-solved/ PLEASE NOTE: YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO EXTRACT OLDER NOTES. THIS ONLY WORKS ON NOTES CREATED ON THE KINDLE ITSELF.

    Kindle "My Clippings" to Evernote

    The software is available in a Windows installer or Windows portable file. Some versions also have a Mac installer thanks to thearr (author of the original Klippings). If that's your platform, you can access the program at: http://daleyklipping...y.com/download/ If you are running Linux, I don't yet have an installer for you. However, you can use the source files off the same page if you're willing to install the needed packages. I suggest you use the same versions I do: Python 2.7.3 (http://www.python.org/getit/) PyQt-Py2.7 (http://www.riverbank...e/pyqt/download) PyQt dependencies (ONLY if it was not ncluded in the PyQt binary, see PyQt link for list) Qt (ONLY if it was not included in the PyQt binary, http://qt.digia.com/) simplejson (http://pypi.python.o...ypi/simplejson/)

    Kindle "My Clippings" to Evernote

    The original author was able to create installers for Win32, OS X, and Linux (Deb). For now, I'm working with the Python source code also provided by the original author. In principle, that code could be run on any platform, but requires you to install Python plus several libraries (I don't suggest this approach unless you're a programmer yourself). I have zero experience creating an installer and am hoping either (1) I am able to get in touch with the original author or (2) can find a forum member who's interested in the functionality can assist.
  13. So I wanted to get my Kindle Highlights and Notes (hereafter KNote) into Evernote. However, I wanted each Kindle Highlight (plus its KNote, if present) in a separate Evernote Note (hereafter ENote) so I was unhappy with the existing solutions like ClippingsConverter and a web capture at kindle.amazon.com. I did some digging/research and found a free Kindle Clippings application (Klippings, not to be confused with Klippings Kollector) that could be easily modified to achieve the desired outcome. This process is not fully automated (it creates an ENEX file that you must import into Evernotes), but it's pretty darn close. After resolving several issues for users, a release version is available at: http://daleyklipping...y.com/download/ How it Works As you may be aware, Kindle (Touch in my case) places highlights in a "My Clippings.txt" file using a format something like: ==========<Title> (<Author>)- Your <"Highlight" or "Note" or "Bookmark"> on Page <Page> | Location <Location> | Added on <Date><Text of Highlight or KNote>========== In sime cases, adjacent KNotes and Highlights are related. When possible, we automatically associate the KNote with the Highlight. This leads to thre scanrios: (1) Highlight alone, (2) Higlight with KNote, and (3) Knote alone (rare but possible). In all three cases, I create an ENote in Evernote and:Set the author to <Author> (if available)Add a tag for <Author> (special logic used to remove commas and enforce 100 char length)Add a tag for <Title> (special logic used to remove commas and enforce 100 char length)Set the created date to <Date>Add the tag "KindleClipping" (not critical, but the best way to indicate a source for the ENote)Add the tag "ConvertedByDaleyKilppings" (not critical, should help you remember the program if you ever need to)For a Highlight WITHOUT a KNote: I title the ENote "Highlight from Location <Location> of <Title>"The ENote is set to: Source: <Title>Author(s): <Author>Page(s): <Page>Location: <Location><Text of Highlight>For a KNote WITHOUT a Highlight: I title the ENote "Note from Location <Location> of <Title>"The ENote is set to: Source: <Title>Author(s): <Author>Page(s): <Page>Location: <Location><Text of KNote>For a KNote WITH a Highlight: I title the ENote "Note from Location <Location> of <Title>"The ENote is set to: Source: <Title>Author(s): <Author>Page(s): <Page>Location: <Location><Text of KNote>REGARDING HIGHLIGHT=========<Text of Highlight>=========END HIGHLIGHTThe program permits heavy customization of the output so you can make changes to these formats in the Export Settings tab.
