  1. Right, so I need to change my profile pic to a flat grey disc or a black and white image to stop the visual distraction, hmm, ok will do that workaround.
  2. Hi, in latest release (6.12.1) there has suddenly appeared a bright orange circle in the top left with my first initial in it, like a badge or icon or logo. This may seem a trivial complaint (the new list only view in Notebooks is another matter, ahem!), however I find it incredibly distracting, my eye keeps getting drawn to it. It seems completely out of whack with the cool green theme throughout Evernote. I don't know what was there before (that's how it should be, not noticeable), but the effect is so extreme that it is the first time after many years of using Evernote that I have felt strongly enough about a new feature to come here to complain. Please reconsider this, or give us the option to remove it. (I just looked at it again; man, it's just ugly, what's with that font choice that seems to have no thematic connection to anything elsewhere? .. ok I know, #1stworldproblems). Thanks!
  3. I'm running El Capitan too. So why would the bug occur in El Cap if it's a Sierra bug?
  4. Wow, I thought the attachment files were being successfully saved, I had looked and seen them there.. but just now I actually tried to view one of them, and there isn't actually a file there.. just an icon that is zero bytes. No, no errors from the script.
  5. @DTLow, I posted the original script above on MacScripter forum to ask for help there. Nigel Garvey came up with the following, which works to get notes exported from Notes app and into Evernote, from a selected folder, however the attachments aren't coming across yet. (They are being saved in folders). The guys on that forum don't have Evernote so can't test that part of it. Can you take a quick look and see what you think might be at fault in the Evernote section? Evernote creates the note, it knows there should be an attachment there as it shows the box with question mark icon, it just doesn't attach it.

Any attachments are simply "appended" to the Evernote notes in the order they happen to be returned by Notes. 4.

  6. @DTLow, do you have any suggestions for resources/places where I can learn about these Applescript commands, particularly regarding Notes.app, so I can debug this and figure it out myself? I'm a newbie to scripting but would like to learn how to do this. Thanks. I'm wondering if this particular one doesn't work since Apple changed Notes from being hosted by an email account, to iCloud. (The script refers to "theMessages")
  7. Appreciate you don't want to debug. As for your suggestion, that's not going to work in the long run for me to select a folder of notes to export, as I would have to separately enter name of each note. (I just want to avoid exporting all notes, so trying to work out a way to do it with a selection or a folder.) I did use it to test one note though, got as far as the attachment line. (save att in attFile) error "The variable att is not defined." number -2753 from "att"
  8. tried this, got: error "Notes got an error: Can’t get selection." number -1728 from selection
  9. Really? Wow.. might give it a go, but don't want to test with all my Notes notes.. is there a way to modify so that it only uses a particular folder of notes, for example?
  10. @DTLow I found this script which works for me: https://gist.github.com/mshk/6276780 I then modified it to add a tag, and create a new Notebook in Evernote, i.e.: set listOfNames to {} set theFolder to choose folder "Select the source folder" tell application "Finder" set filelist to every file of the folder theFolder repeat with currentFile in filelist set currentFileName to (the name of currentFile) set nom to currentFileName if text -4 of nom is "." then set currentFileName to (text 1 thru -5 of nom) end if set currentFileDate to (the creation date of currentFile) set modFileDate to (the modification date of currentFile) set currentFileLocation to currentFile as alias set currentFileFolder to (the name of theFolder) tell application "Evernote" set theItem to create note title currentFileName tags ["imported_from_Notes"] created currentFileDate notebook "Imported From Notes" from file currentFileLocation set (modification date of theItem) to modFileDate end tell end repeat end tell
  11. Thanks, tried it, didn't work, have reported on my result over in the original forum you linked to.
  12. @DTLow I just tried it and got the same error error "Evernote got an error: File does not exist." number 3
