  1. The latest version contains an option to do the opposite: import a whole folder now without linking to it. I still use Evernote Classic because of Evernote's breaking this feature.
  2. Thanks for sharing that! Now that I just realized Evernote stopped supporting links to files on my hard drive, I'm pissed and moving off this heap of *****. Obsidian looks amazing, and being based on markdown, you can have your own data and Evernote cannot break it. Like they just broke my data. I had to downgrade to version 7. And yes I really want those collapsible bullets and other features of obsidian. I hope it works! Is there an export from Evernote to Obsidian?
  3. Yeah I've seen that several times too. This bug is so old I'm seeing different versions of it.
  4. Wow, this is the hardest popup problem I've seen since that vacation in Thailand giggity
  5. I just saw it again, with version 10.5.7 just now on OS X. Good news. I'm up to date AGAIN with the same version! :-)
  6. Where are ANY options? Evernote on OS X does not have a Preferences pane! What kind of application gives users zero choice about their environment?
  7. If you are looking at mindmapping software, all of them collapse lists that I've seen. That's kind of a major deal with mindmaps and other heirarchies. Why is this hard Evernote? I'm surmising that the Evernote code base is a big fat mess of spaghetti code and adding a feature like this is a year long project of fixing bugs and patching bad code.
  8. I do indeed find that to be easier, thanks! I would mark this as the real answer but I already chose the F2 reply. But your reply is even better. Thanks
  9. Actually that does help a ton! Using F2 is awkward on a Mac but much easier than mousing to the title field and clicking, in my opinion. I can now do what I want, which is open and write a complete new note using only the keyboard. I still think Evernote is doing it wrong but now I can just not care. :-) Thanks!
  10. When I write, I want to start in the title. I like to type a title first for most entries, then write about the title in the body. But Evernote always starts me in the body of the note first. This is worse because I cannot just tab to the title field from the body. If I were to start in the title, I could just type Command-N, type the title, hit Tab to move to the note body, and type the content, all without touching a mouse or menu directly. This is fast and desirable. At least give me an option to behave this way. Putting the cursor in the body to start is backwards because who writes like that? :-) Please! Thanks.
  11. I don't think the magic of Workflowy lies in the data format. The magic lies in how they display it. So to do what you ask would be very difficult, as it would require executing workflowy within Evernote, literally. Contrary to the claims of others, I would think expandable lists are not that hard to implement, but my observation of how Evernote handles bullet lists is that they are doing something very weird with their formatting that does not play well with others. What I'm doing now is using MindNode. To get a list from Evernote into it, I have to copy/paste from Evernote into a plain text file (BBEdit) and save that file with ".md" extension for "markdown" format. I then open that with MindNode and I get a beautiful mindmap with collapsible outline.
  12. Your point about toolchain fragmentation is a great one. I currently use Evernote, OmniFocus for my personal organization. I recently added MindNode to get this "collapsible outline" feature (plus a lot more!).
  13. There are a few out there. Google "collapsible outline app" for which ones. Mind mapping is usually just another way to view an outline, actually. They are interchangeable. I don't think it would take much of a rewrite. But neither of us knows that.
  14. I can make wild guesses as good as you, thanks. 😛 If I find an answer I'll post it. I'm currently working on this list: https://zapier.com/blog/best-outline-software/
  15. OK, I will find another add-on tool, thanks! I'm looking at workflowy maybe. I didn't know Pages would do that. Sounds cool but in testing a bullet list in Pages, I don't see it being able to collapse anything.
  16. Is this idea dead? It is still a very good one and I'm out looking for a tool that will do this for me.
  17. The thing I dislike about iOS most is Apple deciding I shouldn't be able to share files easily between apps, e.g. opening a file in one app that I created in another app. This is the crappiest idea ever. It's like taking your shoes off before going through the airport line. Security theatre.
  18. 'm using Evernote extension on Mac in Chrome. In Safari, when I am on a page and click the little elephant to capture a page to EN, I can use the left/right arrows to move the selection on the page around, and use the up/down arrows to grow and shrink the selection. In Chrome, the arrow keys do nothing. I can click the +/- button to grow and shrink the selection, but the arrow keys just operate the page content as usual and are not intercepted by the extension.
  19. I was skeptical about this but it is interesting that the download version is 7.1, and the App Store version is 7.0.3 as of now for OS X. Anyhow, I replaced the App Store version Evernote made a separate copy of my notes for whatever reason and then continued... After installing the new version, the link is working. I did not have to do the "drag to Firefox" dance you did. I will revisit in a day or two and see if it mysteriously breaks again. So far, this is working.
  20. UPDATE: WITHOUT changing anything at all in the note, I am now getting "Evernote does not have permission to open" errors again. OK, this is weird. I tried your suggestion and it worked. I looked back at my original file link and it was identical. I tested the original and now it works. I changed nothing between when it was giving me permission error and now. So I have no idea what the problem is but it's "fixed." at least for now. Thanks for the help. I still don't know what the problem was. Hmm.... why was I getting that "“Evernote” does not have permission to open " error?
  21. As I mentioned, the URL I'm using works in Chrome and Safari. It is a correct file:// URL which opens the file in other apps. Evernote tries to open it and gets permission errors. Finder does not have a "Copy blah blah as Pathname". Man, the upload limits on this forum are ridiculously small. I can copy the file, but then it gets pasted as a file in Evernote. What Finder are you using that has these different menu options?
  22. To answer your question, I dropped the file into the Terminal, which gets a correctly quoted path for the file. The path is correct, is that what you are asking? There are no typos in it. If I copy the path as specified in Evernote with "copy link", then paste it into my browser, the file opens fine for me. So there is no reason Evernote could not do the same thing as far as I know. It looks like a bug to me.
  23. Are you saying that when you click on the "Test.pdf" link in your note, that it opens your document on your hard drive? How is your setup different I wonder, because I also get "does not have permission" with a similar situation.
  24. Hello Two bugs with file:// URLs. First, backslashes make them completely break. Second, even without backslashes, they don't work. I get "does not have permission." I want to include a link to a file on my hard drive in one of my notes. The path to the file is the following: /Volumes/2\ TB\ SSD\ external/current_projects_SSD/Performing\ Arts/comedy/breaking-comedys-dna_\(v.1.4.4\).pdf When I copy this path into Evernote I see that the '\' characters get turned into HTML "%5C" codes. So I right click on some tex and select "Link-->Add..." and add this: file:///Volumes/2\ TB\ SSD\ external/current_projects_SSD/Performing\ Arts/comedy/breaking-comedys-dna_\(v.1.4.4\).pdf I then click "OK". If I then right click on the text and do "Link--> Edit..." the link has been changed to: file:///Volumes/2%5C%20TB%5C%20SSD%5C%20external/current_projects_SSD/Performing%5C%20Arts/comedy/breaking-comedys-dna_%5C(v.1.4.4%5C).pdf As you can see, the backslashes are preserved here. It should look like this: file:///Volumes/2%20TB%20SSD%20external/current_projects_SSD/Performing%20Arts/comedy/breaking-comedys-dna_(v.1.4.4).pdf If I make these changes, removing the '%5C' characters, then it gives me this error: The application “Evernote” does not have permission to open “breaking-comedys-dna_(v.1.4.4).pdf.” Can Evernote be fixed to work on Mac with file paths? Thanks.
  25. I'm getting this error when I try to markup a picture in Mac OS Photos.app using the Skitch extension. Can anyone help? See attached screenshot for what it looks like in real time, very exciting! I've seen others with this problem on the Apple forum but never seen any solution. Thanks.
