  1. This would be extremely helpful. I have a great many notebook stacks that I don't want to delete but are Archive material that I rarely search. But I certainly don't want to have to export them and then re-import them to access, nor have to send them to a second account with limitations or pay for two accounts. Basically I want to EXCLUDE them from searches. Obviously I can do that with the "-" tag or a context search within a stack but it's an extra step. There should be a way to designate a stack as "exclude from searches" unless you include a special search key to INCLUDE the Archived notebooks.
  2. really sucks -- goes from high density, lots of notes on display at once to almost none the font size / density should be selectable by users, that way people who like a minimalist look could have just one or two notes up; but productivity users need lots of info. at once
  3. Thank you, Adjusting, this works perfectly now! Very elegant solution. Much appreciated.
  4. > If you add 'activate' as the first line inside the tell block, Evernote will be launched automatically. Thanks, but FYI this turns out to creates quirky behavior in GeekTools -- as I have the GeekTools shell refreshing (running the script) every few minutes, having Activate in there causes Evernote to come to the front and if I am working on something else then I'm accidentally typing in Evernote. Especially problematic if I have a keyboard maestro macro running at the time in another application. If I add an AppleScript commands to hide Evernote from finder, then next time GeekTools refreshes it minimizes Evernote -- a problem if I was actually in Evernote deliberately working on something when GeekTools auto-refreshed. It was even more problematic when in GeekTools and modifying shell location / font with Open Preferences -- GeekTools activates the script (refreshes) every time one clicks on the shell window to make an adjustment -- thus running the script and with Activate shifting focus from GeekTools to Evernote and making adjustments impossible without quitting Evernote or editing the script to remove the Activate command from the AppleScript and recompiled. I know very little programming but if there is a way to make Activate conditional in AppleScript (conditional only if Evernote is not already running), that would be a good solution?
  5. Thank you, both! Just had a spare few hours to try this out -- had some trouble with selecting the note, took a few hours. Here is the final tested version of an AppleScript that works and below that the Geek Tools directions (which also took me a while to figure out, one needs osascript): tell application "Evernote" set the_Selection to find notes "tag:todo" set the_HTML to HTML content of (item 1 of the_Selection) set plain_Text to do shell script "echo " & quoted form of the_HTML & space & "| textutil -convert txt -stdin -output '/Users/myusername/Documents/ToDo.txt'" end tell Notes: 1. Evernote must be running. 2. the tag "todo" is unique to this note 3. the above script was created in Applescript then saved in Applications as ToDoToTXT.scpt 4. in Geektools, drag a Shell, and then from a text editor paste in the following two lines for the Command: osascript /Applications/ToDoToTXT.scptcat /Users/myusername/Documents/ToDo.txt 5. set to refresh periodically (I have every 180 seconds) Now I can edit / maintain a todo list in Evernote, and have it automatically display on my Mac desktop as plain text.
  6. Hi, newbie AppleScript question: I'd like to export the contents of a single designated note to a plain text file. (With GeekTools I'll then display that file on my desktop.) For selecting the designated note, the Evernote note that contains my to do hot list has a unique tag that no other notes use. I've searched and found some lengthy AppleScripts on the forums for much more complex operations -- such as exporting many notes to RTF or HTML in subfolders -- but my attempts to modify them haven't been successful and the Evernote AppleScript dictionary contains only the commands and no examples of implementation / no tutorials. Evernote says they don't support helping premium users with this type of simple programming but suggested maybe someone in the developer forums might help. Hoping someone either has specific code or can give me some links to tutorials / examples that are very simple for selecting a specific note, selecting it's contents, writing this to a file, etc. Thanks!
