  1. I've been working on writing a novel for several years and use EN to keep all of my research notes. I have about 13,000 notes. The nature of my work often involves a lot of copy/pasting. I've been a PAID user of EN for a decade. Lately, I find that I am using EN less and less and am "vigorously" looking around for alternatives SPECIFICALLY because this color issue makes it difficult for me to continue using it. This color issue is becoming a deal-breaker. Evernote Engineers-- if you are listening -- you need to do something about this! Thanks
  2. I think someone decided to change some color schemes in version (307934) Public (CE Build ce-53.4.6770) I am color tone blind (as are ~4% of all males). I am also elderly. Consequently, there are certain colors I simply do not see as well as you. (There are, in fact, many color tones that we do not see at all.) With this new version I find that when I select a block of text, the resulting background color is a very light blue or green. It is so light that I can only just barely see it. Most times I cannot see it all. Is there some way I can change the color scheme for blocked text? I've looked at all of the settings and don't seem to find anything like this. This is NOT a problem with any of my other programs, so it seems to be specific to Evernote and not a general Windows setting. I would urge Evernote engineers to be more sensitive to readabilty factors for both older folks and color-tone blind people who use Evernote. Thanks
  3. Ah!!! Found it! This seems to do the trick: ^#!f5:: ; hold down Ctrl+Win+Alt and then press F5 key to trigger this FormatTime, Time,, yyMMdd-HHmm.ss ; this is my "special" format. You may have a different format Send, ^+{up} ; send Ctrl+Shift+Up arrow to start superscript font SendInput %Time% ; insert date stamp Send, ^+{up} ; send ctrl-shift+uparrow to end superscript mode return The result looks like this: TEST datestamp TEST or, using my datestamp format, TEST180620-0924.33TEST This makes is real easy to poke in a time reference when I add annotations to existing notes, etc. Very useful.
  4. @Super Guru- Thanks for your suggestion, but Evernote does not seem to recognize it at all . I just get the date in the regular font. ^#!f5:: FormatTime, Time,, yyMMdd-HHmm.ss Send, {Ctrl}{Shift}{Up} SendInput %Time% Send, {Ctrl}{Shift}{Down} return This simply produced the datestamp in the default font, not as superscript. I also tried: ^#!f4:: FormatTime, Time,, yyMMdd-HHmm.ss Send, {Ctrl}{b} SendInput %Time% Send, {Ctrl}{b} return This simply generated the datestamp with a (literal) "b" before and after it. I.e. Autohotkey is seeing the "b" key as an alphabetic and not as a control character. More suggestions? (Thanks for your help!!)
  5. I'm looking for a script snippet to format a datestamp as superscript and then return to normal text in Evernote using Autohotkey. The key stroke in Evernote to make selected text superscript is Ctrl+Shift+Uparrow. ^#!f8:: FormatTime, Time,, _yyMMdd-HHmm.ssε SendInput %Time% return I've got the datestamp part working just fine but cannot how to put it into superscript. Help, please. Thanks
  6. I experimented with this for a while. EAtags puts a nice TOC of tagged note links at the top of a note --much like a Header. However, from what I can see, it does NOT update the TOC in the existing note dynamically when I add a new note with the specified tag. This operation could be done entirely within EN without EAtags. Just create a TOC note and then merge it with the target note in which you want the TOC to appear in. Or.... just copy/paste the TOC into the target note, However, this still does not solve the problem of dynamic updating. The only solution to a dynamically generated TOC that I can see is to create a new TOC note each time you need it. The problem here is that you inevitably wind up with dozens of largely redundant TOC notes on, say, Broccoli or Asparagus that may or may not contain all of the current listings for that tag. This creates issues with version management. This also does not play well for accessing an up-to-date TOC as external or local links such as a hyperlink a mind map or other external application. Does anyone have any other ideas on how to generate a dynamically updated TOC in EN???
  7. A Tag-based TOC that dynamically updates would be a very welcome addition. PLEASE ADD! ;-)
  8. That's a good point about the duplication of the note. I didn't think about that. What a mess that would be! I guess this just isn't going to work quite like I wanted it to. ;-( The best way to do it would probably be to find some sort of 3rd-party add-on that sits "inside" EN and adds fully integrated mind-mapping capability to it. Some companies are starting to show signs of heading in that direction such as moh.io, Their mind-map analyses the existing note structure of EN and then constructs a map of it based on the tags and notebooks. However, it does not seem to let me create a new map of my own design. (Maybe they are working on that???) I am not aware of anyone who is working on a capabilty for building a map from scratch and then allowing the user to selectively and directly link various EN notes into its nodes and allow EN to display the notes. That's one for the "feature request list", I guess. Thanks again for all of your help! .
  9. I want to be able to call up specific notes from (local) links in my mind-mapping software (Freemind) so that I can read AND EDIT them. If I drag/drop the note over into Freemind, it creates a _local_ link to an .ENEX file located on my computer. I was hoping that this would simply load it right into EN and allow me to edit the text, add tags, search, etc. and use all of the power that EN offers. If, on the other hand, I do it the "correct way" by right-clicking on the item in the list window and either Share --> "Copy Note URL" or "Copy Note Link" it generates the web-based URL which does not allow editing and does not give me the ability to add tags, etc. (Thanks for your help.).
  10. Thanks, Jefito- Tried that. Nothing! The search found all kinds of references to evernote.exe in text files, applogs, etc. but did not find the actual Evernote.exe program file anywhere. Any other guesses? Why would EN be "hiding" when all of my other programs are visible in a normal manner? Weird.... Thanks again
  11. I've been a premium user of EN for several years. I have over 4,000 notes in it. However, recently, when I click on an .ENEX file on my desktop, my Windows 8.1 asks "How do you want to open this file?". OK, apparently this file extension is no longer associated with EN for some reason. So I click the "more options" and look at the list of possible options. EN is not listed. Then I scroll down to the bottom of the list and click on "Look for another app on this PC" which takes me to File Explorer and lists the contents of C:\windows\Program Files directory but EN is not listed there, either. OK, so now I look in the C:/windows/programfiles(x86) directory but it's not there, either. I don't find any traces of where EN lives in my computer. I know it's "hiding" somewhere because I use it daily and I have the EN icon in my system tray, (It seems to work fine, otherwise. It just won't load exterior .ENEX files.) So, my big question is, where does the EN program live in my computer? (I'm talking about the application program, not my data files - I know where they are.) How do I find the application program so that I can associate .ENEX files to it???? (How does one lose this association in the first place? Has something been messing with my registry?) Thanks. This is a weird one....
