  1. I rarely use EN-Web. 95% of the time, I use EN-for-Windows desktop app, the remainder EN-for-Android, with a little iOS iPad mixed in. Anyway, I just had need of this ability/feature, to add rows to a Table via EN Web... and the above quoted advice worked for me also when using a Windows machine + Chrome Browser. The only additional clarification to be aware of, is the user must make sure they are using the 'NEW' Version of EN-Web, not the 'OLD' Version. Just click on your account icon in EN Web to see the option to switch Old-to-New, and vice versa.
  2. I have attempted to find a solution to this (see title) for sometime. I would generate links, Web-Links (CTRL+/ -or- 'Copy Share URL) from EN-for-Windows desktop app, paste these to other Online websites e.g. Asana.com But when clicked, these links, would take me to EN-WEB ...with the next issue being EN-WEB then instructed me to 'Save Copy to Evernote'...arrghh Creating 'Classic In-App Links' (CTRL+ALT+L) from EN-for-Windows e.g evernote:///view/ ...could also be pasted in to online websites, if pasted as plain text, but then these links aren't recognised by online websites such as Asana.com. However these 'Classic Links' work perfect if pasting in to other Apps installed on your PC, such as MS Word/Outlook/Excel ...no problem at all and work fine. But again my issue was wanting links I pasted to online websites, to open in EN-Desktop, not EN Web... and definitely not resulting in saving a copy of the note Whilst not perfect - I finally found how to make this work... and the trick is to generate the link off the Web, for the Web, or in other words I need to go to EN-Web to generate the Note-link, not EN-Desktop. I have copy-pasted my own use-notes below. And for fun copied all the notes I have clipped since trying to figure this out. USE NOTES: LINK TO EN-for-WINDOWS DESKTOP NOTES - FROM: >>1 OTHER PC DESKTOP APP Generate a CLASSIC IN-APP LINK, looks like evernote:///view, (CTRL+ALT+L - or go Menu>Note>'Copy Internal Link') from EN-DESKTOP APP > Paste Resulting Link to Other Local PC App e.g MS Word - works great. >>2 ANY ONLINE WEBSITE Must Generate a NOTE-LINK from EN-WEB (Click ellipses top left of screen) > Must Be Using OLD Version of EN-WEB (not Beta version) and EN-Desktop must be opened on PC. NOTE- The Desktop Note will open as a Separate Window PLUS your Browser will show the same note in a separate Browser Tab. There is no way to disable this, as this is due to the need of the server to read the link first from the server, and call out the note in the app. Finally, if you ever delete your EN cookies from your browser, you will once again be prompted and need to choose where to open the links - see image below RELATED FORUM THREADS I READ TO ARRIVE AT THE ABOVE How to make Chrome open Evernote links in desktop app | 2015 How can i create an evernote link in desktop version to open the desktop version when pasted into a web link | 2019 Make links to notes to open with desktop app | 2019 OPTION To Open EN Notes Linked to from Other Website in EN-Web -or- EN-Desktop | 2018 | My Thread Open Link with Desktop not with Browser | 2017 Workaround: How to Use Internal Links | 2019 Clicking web link to note goes to web Evernote, not locally installed app | 2016 - 2018 | My Comments
  3. Hey @RCoonceTX wow, that's awesome ...and thanks very much for taking the time to share this, great stuff :-) I'm also using tables with embedded links a lot, linking to downstream child notes, for workflow management/process steps etc. But right now I'm a one-man-gang, or at least don't need to share/collaborate with others to implement projects. So my question, if indeed you have a team, is how do you protect the data-integrity/lock-to-editing, all that i.e. esp the parent control table-note - but I guess the downstream notes need to be edit-able. Is it simply a case of making backups? Also, I like your pseudo form design...nice. Even light grey font use. My only preference would be to sort your primary table 'down-then-over'...haha Also like how you drag the emails in as an attachment. I have been saving emails as separate notes then also linking to them...but maybe this is better, thanks again
  4. Thanks very much @gazumped Yeah thought of that... thing is EN-Android can create a NEW Audio Note - but on my EN Android App, there is no ability/icon to add audio to an EXISTING note!? And another observation, is that afterwards when viewing Audio Note on my Win10 PC, the audio note and attachment is in a format that can not be downloaded to PC, should the need ever arise... guess the solution there would be to use another audio app as you suggested. My PC allows access to microphone for a long list of other Apps yet EN is not on the list so no sure why EN is kicked out as you say. As luck would turn out, trying out your advice led me to an accidental solution to an earlier forum-post you helped me with re Speech-to-Text Dictation. So... when in a new/existing note on my phone EN-Android...just tap anywhere on a note and then the phones keyboard (I have Samsung Note8 - not sure if that matters) pops up, on top of which is a mic icon, that when pressed causes speech-to-text dictation to start...awesome. Cheers again Gazumped
  5. I've never used this feature before, except for a dabble one time wayback, and back then it worked just fine. However just now when explored this feature again, everything appeared to record/save just fine, but then during playback NO Sound/Audio could be heard. I'm using the same microphone as always, that's paired with my browser so i can talk to Google when searching...so should be no issues there. I tried both ways: From Existing Note - I clicked the Record Audio icon, and successfully recorded an audio file that appeared as an embedded attachment New Note - I created a new Audio Note - Using: File Menu > New Note > New Audio Note Neither approach worked...same result. Any ideas??? Finally, I'm using EN-for-Windows (308489) Public (CE Build ce-62.3.7750) cheers
  6. also...and just to clarify for you/me/others. When in a note on EN-for-Windows...Shortcuts to generate Links CTRL+ALT+L - to get a IN-APP - CLASSIC Note Link evernote:///view/ CTRL+/ - to get a WEB Note Link : https://www.evernote.com/
  7. On EN-for-Windows, when you are in a note, and you do a CTRL+ALT+L to generate the CLASSIC (In-App) note-link (evernote:///view)... well, at this stage, you already have 'Retrieved' a classic note link... so to answer your question YES it's possible. I think the issue you're having, occurs when wanting to paste the 'actual' link-syntax, as opposed to the notes-title-anchor-text thingy. Hence why I think you are using your current '2-Step-Shuffle' of 1st pasting to notepad...as i believe notepad somehow strips everything away and just keeps the link-syntax. The easiest method I have found... when wanting to paste a classic note-link to either another app on your PC (assuming PC - not MAC), or a web-app, such as Asana (my online workflow system), simply Right Click and select 'PASTE AS PLAIN TEXT' -or- CTRL+SHIFT+V ...that should now show the classic-link syntax in 1 step. NB this however wont work if wanting to paste the classic link-syntax into another note on EN itself...don't know why!? ...and so back to your 2-step process 😞 My issue is, that unlike locally installed apps on my PC, such as MS Outlook or Word, that I can paste the classic links to fine, and have them open the note on the desktop... Classic note-links pasted to online web-enabled apps such as Asana...are not recognised!!! And no amount of configuring my browser has resolved it thus far...
  8. Hey @jefito Yeah, I also learnt this from you some time ago, cheers, and in addition to the other method of clicking the right arrow, think its called a carret, that only visually appears when hovering the mouse over the notebook name, given directly above the note. But -when using either method, the next issue that arises, especially if one has many notes in the notebook, is that EN no longer highlights/views the original note that was linked to via the in-app link, or found via a search! ...instead it shows the 1st note in the notebook ( I have my middle pane set to 'SIDE LIST' view and Sort by 'Title')...and so once again I have to go looking for it...bloody annoying. Maybe its a bug with my EN Install, or a symptom of how I have configured the Middle Panel, or maybe just a let down of EN... any ideas?? cheers
  9. Yeah I do use tables a lot, and a big part of the reason why, is for the ability to edit background colour. Ideally it would have been awesome if i could have quickly edited the note as per your advice above... sera sera. Just random pot luck that that note, I attached above, looked so great... cheers again
  10. Arrrggghhh...forget that! Too hard. The 1st Note I exported to an .enex file was a large note and so the code was really long and "background" appeared in many places...was going to take a long time So I created a new EN Test note, with just a title, and one line of text - then synced - then exported... thinking the code would be much smaller...and indeed it was. But when I opened it with Notepadd++ text editor, their was no background-code found in the code... so I will give in at that point. Thanks all the same
  11. hold the phone, "background" appears in many places in the code - need to try again and make sure I'm changing the right 'background' to effect note background color - will try now
  12. So I could edit the note, with a new background color - but EN ignored it
  13. I was getting excited for a minute there @DTLow I exported the .enex file - of one note I opened this note with 'Notepad++' Did a Find CTRL+F on the word 'back' for background... and found where the background color piece of RGB code was I changed it to 229, 229, 229 saved and closed Opened it again to see if my changes were recorded - yes they were Imported the .enex file back to EN Opened the Note BUT........ No change 😞
  14. So if I understand you correctly, you are then able to edit the background colour of any note easily... is that right? If yes to the the above, then does the same ability exist to edit the .enex file (using a text editor) in order to change background colour??? Many Thanks... and I will export a note to an enex.file now to also attempt what you have shared...cheers
  15. Thanks @gazumped for having a crack at it...cheers
