  1. Hi -- As part of my new year's resolution(s), I'm trying to fix a longstanding problem I've been struggling with for web-based research. Over the years I've become a regular user of Evernote, Instapaper, Pinboard, and a few other similar sites, but have not used them consistently. As a result, I have some content in one service, some in another, etc. I'd like to streamline this so that I have all my content in all the services I'm paying for and are using for specific purposes. What I'm particularly looking for is a way to automate this, so that I don't have to save everything into 3 places every time. What I would like is a simple solution for marking a page as "save this for me", and have it be saved in Evernote with content, bookmarked in Pinboard, and optionally in Instapaper (e.g. if during the saving process I tag it with "read-later" or some such). The challenge I've run into is figuring out how to use IFTTT, Zapier or any of these other tools to tell Evernote to grab and cache the web content. I've only figured out how to do that with the bookmarklet (desktop/browser) or mobile share sheets (iOS). The closest I've found is a IFTTT recipe called "When adding Pinboard item, save to Instapaper and Evernote", which would let me use Pinboard as the initial capture mechanism and then add that content to EN and Instapaper as well, but the EN side of the equation only captures a URL, not the page content itself. I can't find an EN "action" to tell it to then cache the page content. Similarly, I cannot find an EN "trigger" to kick in anytime someone saves a web page to EN directly, nor does there seem to be a way to retrieve the URL field from an EN note via IFTTT or Zapier, so I'm not sure going the reverse direction would work either. There are many recipes and productivity pages out there talking about how to sync links across these various services, but I haven't found any solution to the ability to store web research results/page content across multiple services that offer this content caching. Any suggestions on how to tackle this using 2019 tech/automation? Thanks, Ramon
  2. Any other suggestions for this? In particular, looking for a native Mac app or Safari-based alternative that we could switch to when needing to kick off a live co-editing session. OK for this to be a separate app if it could start the session by reading from an Evernote note, and then end the session by writing back to EN. Any thoughts? Ramon
  3. Wow that is stunning. I'm having a hard time wrapping my brain around the idea that a product of Evernote's exposure doesn't support copy and paste. Thanks very much for the answer. Is there a publicly visible list of such bugs or enhancement requests? Ramon
  4. Hi all -- I'm trying to use Evernote to track meeting minutes where we use tables for things like agendas, decisions, etc. As a natural part of using tables we want to edit them, including moving rows around in the able. I can't seem to get this to work on Mac. When I paste a row it just takes all of the text contents of the entire copied row and pastes it into the first cell of the destination. Is this possible? If so I would appreciate detailed instructions, including how to correctly select the source row, and where to place the cursor to indicate where I want the row to be inserted. Thanks in advance for your help. Ramon
