  1. Thank you Paul! Both of those shortcuts will work for me. To answer your question, I use checkboxes in two ways: 1) Complex to-do lists, where I'll have something like: [ ] Goal to accomplish Context for how to accomplish the goal More context -- perhaps a link to another note, or to a website, or contact info for someone, or specific things to do 2) Multiple checkboxes on one line, for example, that list out simple subtasks to accomplish a larger goal. For example: [ ] Get wetsuit [ ] Setup Craigslist alert [ ] Check Nextdoor [ ] Setup Ebay alert
  2. My Evernote Applescripts have stopped working as of about a month ago (October 2020). I'm on macOS 10.15.7 (Catalina) and Evernote 10.3.7. Seems to have occurred right after I upgraded to Evernote. Essentially, the entire script got mangled so that it's not looking at all like Applescript, but something else. Here's a snippet: tell application "Evernote" (* Ensure that we're starting off clean *) «event EVRNsync» set matches to «event EVRNfind» "opti sail water -security -waste -sauce -vwmare -onelogin" if (count of matches) > 0 then «event EVRNass
  3. Keyboard shortcut for entering a checkbox is now missing in Evernote version 10. Really frustrating when creating a to-do list.
  4. I'm getting this as well. Running the following: Evernote Version 7.10 (457750 Direct) Editor: 69.1.8237 (1f0aea9) on macOS Mojave, version 10.14.5 (18F132) I'm logged in as an admin. I first saw this yesterday (6/4/2019), and logged in with my admin password, and chose always allow. No further issues that day. Then I just this morning (6/5/19) rebooted, and about 15 minutes after reboot, got the issue again. Hope this helps with reproducing the bug.
  5. Interesting idea, but for me at least, the combinatorics would get out of control. There would be a lot of combinations of potential searches to save.
  6. To the point about using AppleScript: I appreciate the suggestion. Evernote's AppleScript looks pretty powerful. However, one attraction of using Evernote is precisely because it works across operating systems and vendors. Which to me is a big knock against Microsoft OneNote and Google Keep, to name a couple of competitors. Using AppleScript is great for now, when on a Mac but we also use PCs in our family. -- Another issue with the Applescript workaround: there's not a lot of lot of documentation on how to use AppleScript, it seems incomplete, and it's hard for any non-de
  7. Sorry, was just trying to make it easier to find the information, since the same request does appear in multiple threads. Was aiming for convenience, not annoyance, but it seems like I might have created the latter.
  8. Yes, exactly. Automate the manual process is indeed the request. Sorry if I wasn't clear on that. To try to clarify: Evernote has lots of great advanced search capabilities that aren't always easier to remember. Auto-tagging can make it so that you don't have to remember complicated search rules. Auto-tagging can automatically apply the tags that matter to you. Ideally, auto-tagging would take advantage of all of Evernote's search capabilities, similar to how Gmail's Filter feature uses all of Gmail's search capabilities.

  10. Sorry about that. Was just trying to make it convenient for others to find the ideas. I'll post a link next time.
  11. Yes, with the Smart Filing feature, Evernote now automatically puts in some tags. It's a step forward, but not nearly enough. We need auto-tag rules, similar to Gmail's filters, to catch what Evernote doesn't seem to be able to "learn" on its own. Here's why. In the 15 years I've used Gmail, I've built up literally hundreds of auto-tagging rules (Gmail calls them "filters" but it's the same concept). I've done this because it makes it easier to find stuff in Gmail. All the concepts below that apply to Gmail would also apply to Evernote, to make it easier to find stuff in Evernote. He

  13. Not redundant. So for example, everything in my Marketing notebook gets the Marketing tag. Everything in the Career notebook gets the Career tag. And so on. I put notes into one of a couple dozen notebooks. But sometimes a note could go into one of two different notebooks. For example, my career is marketing. So, sometimes I'll use the web clipper to pull in something that could go into the career notebook, and sometimes it goes into the marketing notebook. But to find it later, I'll tag it both "career" and "marketing". That say, since everything has a tag, just search by tag.
  14. There are lots of great Evernote advance search operators, but they're not easier to remember. For instance: who remembers the search operator to find notes with a PDF? (it's resource:application/pdf) It's much easier to setup rules, such as: If todo:true then apply tag "todo" Or: If resource:application/pdf then apply tag "pdf"
