  1. Not quite what you want but, is this helpful? * Alfred *can* search in Evernote. I use the paid version but the freemium might work for you. You just invoke Alfred with a shortcut (just like Spotlight), type 'ENS" followed by what you're looking for. [I assume that Alfred uses the same macOS under-the-hood magic that Spotlight uses. Don't really understand why Alfred but not Spotlight can use it] * You *can* also invoke an Evernote-only search. Look in Evernote > Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts > Search in Evernote. I have ⌃⇧S, maybe this is the default. This is imperfect b
  2. Thank you so much for trying to help me out here...I'm afraid I'm missing something. I'm not sure if I'm not doing what I should be with your script or if there's something funny about my MBP's set up. I have: 1. Amalgamated your suggestions like this VVV (and attached). The files compiles and runs. √ # # DTlow script to change list of form '1Password.app' # to 'file:///1password.app' but display'1Password.app' # for use in e-notes to link to specfic apps to speed up # multi-app, step-b-step instructions, etc. # # https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/118491-bulk-addition-of-text-wit
  3. I'm not great with Applescript but can usually follow/adapt other peoples, if that's an offer DTLow!
  4. Background I often find that I end up doing things on my mac that only need doing two or three times a year - just long enough for me to forget what to do! So I got into the habit of writing notes with local links to the apps that I need to use - for example Open Terminal then do....XYZ [The text 'Terminal' has the link: file:///applications/terminal.app. I can tap it and open Terminal without breaking into a sweat]. 1. Then I thought it would be easier to create a text document list of ALL my apps. in Terminal... cd /applications ls > applicationList.txt Which g
  5. Good to know George, thanks - Running Applescript with Automator Services usually works fine for me but - irrespective of the missing Evernote shortcut - it's quite fiddly. FastScripts seems much more efficient. I'm convinced!
  6. I'm struggling to get George's applescript to work with a shortcut in Evernote - can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong please? 1. The applescript works, when it's run in the Applescript Editor. 2. I've put the applescript in an Automator service with 'Service receives No Imput in All Applications.' 3. The Automator service has a shortcut set. 4. Evernote, Automator and Finder are green lit in Security & Privacy > Accessibility 5. If I look at the available Services in Evernote, I see the Service in the dropdown list but not the shortcut. The service runs if
  7. Thanks DTLow - Yes, I sometimes link subnotes to a master/overview note (which can have its own Reminder Date); and using the COPY NOTE LINK ⌃ ⌥ ⌘ C shortcut on the target note cuts out some of the mousing which helps. Though often I have heaps of really brief todos (phone someone at a particular time, book rail ticket between two dates, etc) so this is quite an arduous solution for stuff like that. Also, maybe just me but I find a notebook full of To Do notes mixed up with, say, reference/info notes, my own notes, slightly overwhelming and need to manually check to make sure I'm o
  8. Just a quick qualification - Nevikk (June 14). We can already have multiple reminders for one Notebook, because each note gets one reminder. I think that you mean multiple reminders in each Note...? I would find multiple reminders in each Note really useful too because most of my projects have a final submission date but are broken down into steps, usually as a check list. I could have a fresh note for each todo but that stop me from having a clear view of the whole project on the single overview note that I use. I often end up changing the overview note's reminder date for each step that
  9. I'm using Mac OS's Reminders app. Every Monday it pops up and contains the 'Public Link' to the EN that I need to check on.
  10. Thanks very much everyone - I hadn't thought of that one. I guess that keeping Dropbox out of my User folder might be problematic on shared machines or on managed machines because it would give others access to whatever's in your Dropbox folder - tho' that doesn't apply to me and I think that's the solution I'll run with. I sometimes check things on Dropbox via iOS but it's really unusual and I don't mind foregoing that facility. Cheers,
  11. Does anyone have any good tips for me please? I use two macs (work & home) that are synced by Dropbox. I also use Evernote/Notes as a kind landing strip for projects and like to add 'file://' to the path to create links, e.g,. '/Users/work/Dropbox/untitled.txt' becomes 'file:///Users/work/Dropbox/untitled.txt'. This takes me from Evernote/Notes to the Dropbox file/folder. Great. But if I hit the link from home, the path is wrong (it's needs to be 'file:///Users/home/Dropbox/untitled.txt'). I know that I can replace the root directory with a tilde. So t
  12. Oh! I just noticed a workaround: Hit the 'Notify Me' button, which looks like an Alarm Clock). Ta da! You now have a new Reminders list, which is re-arrangeable and tick-off-able. I think Mac OS's Reminders is superior to this in that re-arrangeable, tick-able lists work in and transfer to iOS (EN does not); but OTOH, EN wins in terms of the amount of stuff (attachments, lengthy notes, etc) that can be added.
  13. YES! I the first thing I do once I've taken my hat and coat off in the morning is open a check list in Springpad and manually order today's jobs. That's all I use Springpad for - the rest of the time I use EN. Bizarre but true!
  14. Thanks - I'll probably use this (if I can remember it) but I'm not sure it's really any quicker than my current work around. I concur that it's crying out for the standard corner drag feature.
