  1. Evernote 10.10 for macOS Bring back the ability to select more than 50 notes. This is handy when applying one tag to many notes.
  2. Evernote version: 10.9.10-mac-ddl-public (2439) Editor: v119.1.15375 Service: v1.30.2 -- Sometimes in Evernote, I'll select a few notes, say 4 or 5, and attempt to apply multiple tags to them. When I go to tag those notes, one of three things happens: Those tags get applied to the 4 or 5 notes that I selected. (This is expected behavior) The tags get applied to just one note, the most recent. (A bug.) The tags get applied to 50 notes, the max you can select for tagging. This is also a bug, and essentially data corruption, since suddenly there are a bunc
  3. This would be great, and would make search more intuitive. One core value prop of Evernote is "remember everything". And sometimes people will search for the same concept in different ways: Abbreviations/acronyms versus spelled out: tags for MSFT and Microsoft should be treated the same, as should CA and California, to name two simple examples. Singular vs plural: tags for "meeting notes" and "meeting note" should be treated the same Actual synonyms: tags for "car" and "auto" should be treated the same. It'd be fine by me to define my own synonyms for tags... for each tag
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Keyboard shortcut for entering a checkbox is now missing in Evernote version 10. Really frustrating when creating a to-do list.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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.

  13. Sorry about that. Was just trying to make it convenient for others to find the ideas. I'll post a link next time.
  14. 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
