  1. I noticed on Windows 10 Evernote latest stable version, all the words I spellcheck turn up in the Downloads folder of all places, in a file called Custom Dictionary.txt. Opening the file shows all the added words all crammed together in alphabetical order with a checksum at the end that changes after every addition. Just for fun I shut down Evernote and moved the custom dictionary files to another folder, then started Evernote again. You guessed it: all the red underlines reappeared in all my notes. However reinstating the custom dictionary back to the Downloads folder breaks the sp
  2. OK. Thanks for your patience, and sorry for all the questions but I need to determine what type of notes you have eg tasks, emails, notes, journal, posts etc. The macro is looking for a Note-type item in the default Notes folder, but it appears that it needs to be looking for something else in your Database folders. Can you recall how you created a new note in any of your Database folders? It could be that the Database folder is a user-created folder, as are the sub-folders. When folders are created, Outlook asks what type of items will be in that folder (as shown in attached picture), an
  3. Earlier in this thread, you said: To help me visualise your setup, can you send me a picture of those notes, and the folders they are in? Have I incorrectly assumed the notes are Outlook Notes, in standard Outlook Notes folders? The location, format and type is important for coding...
  4. It seems to have found the Notes folder though, maybe there are no notes in there? Did you move your Outlook Notes somewhere else? If you select Folders in the Navigation view, it should show all of the folders, including the Notes folder as shown in the pictures below?
  5. Ok delete the c as Range, I forgot to clear that out from the Excel code
  6. Your Outlook Notes have many properties, one of them is CreationTime (ie the date and time the Outlook Note was created). The VBA script converts it to text in the format required, then passes it to ENScript as /c date. This adds the original creation date of the note to the new note in Evernote. The default folders are those associated with the default Outlook account in Account Settings. I recall you have the notes set up in a number of PST files? If so, just add them all to your account and select Set as Default in turn and run the macro for each PST. ie go to Outlook > Tools menu &
  7. I'm glad it works! Although it adds the notes to Evernote while I'm watching on my PC, maybe it is some difference in the versions... One of the ENScript options is creation date as shown below, so it is possible to add that to your Evernote note. /c date - Specifies the note creation date and time using the format "YYYY/MM/DD hh:mm:ss". If omitted, the current time is used. While the CSV export from Outlook doesn't include the creation date, it is available via Outlook VBA. I've already ported the Excel macro to Outlook and it runs perfectly (for me anyway) on the notes in the
  8. Ha yes I got carried away. Interesting diversion for me though. Hopefully the Windows macro will help out the OP
  9. Well I had a first pass at a version for Mac but taking a lot longer due to no native Import Folders functionality in Evernote for Mac. I am using Veritrope's Evernote import folder script, however it uses the text file name as the note title, not the first line in the text file like Evernote for Windows. Adding the files manually one by one seems to go OK, but loading them quickly by the macro or dropping a heap of files on the folder seems not to work, converting only one note or crashing Evernote. I've probably set it up incorrectly or it's having issues with my versions of OSX or Evernote.
  10. OK I wondered what happened to your post DTLow. I'm always open to different or better ways to get results, and your suggestion was a much better way of doing this I'm sure this macro won't work on the Mac, because there is no equivalent to the scripting library (for FileSystemObject). I'll see if I can modify to suit though. Here is the Excel for Windows version Sub UpdateEvernoteImportFolder() ' Response to required_username on Evernote Forums ' https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/103802-importing-notebooks-through-pdf/#comment-453125 ' using Evernote import folders idea from D
  11. Thank you DTLow! I've learned about Import Folders today. Much more efficient for this purpose. I've set the note folder in the attached macro as C:\EN, set that up in Explorer or just change the macro to suit, run the macro to create the separate note files, then set Evernote to watch that folder in Evernote > Tools > Import Folders..., add C:\EN, and set the required notebook. Evernote just adds the new or changed notes, which are organised as shown in the screen clip below. I'm sure I can use Import Folders for some of my own requirements, thanks again DTLow forum2.xlsm
  12. What I would do next is to build the entire command line to add a new note via ENScript, and run that from the command prompt. That might indicate where the problem is. I expect it is just a syntax issue. The command line looks like this: C:\>C:\full_path_to_ENScript.exe createNote /n "Notebook name" /i "Note title" /s "C:\Note Text.txt"
  13. Great, can you let me know the entries you made for the variables below? ENLocationENNotebook ENNoteFileLocation
  14. Hi Jimmy Bionic, I just came upon your post and having only recently gone through the two-factor authentication (2FA for short) process myself, maybe I can help. It looks like you will need to set it up with Google Authenticator initially, but after that you can change the 2FA settings on the web version of Evernote to use text messages to your primary phone instead. Then you can delete the Google Authenticator. In thinking about why they have set it up this way, is it possible Evernote has an exclusive agreement with Google? For example you can also login using your Google account but not Fac
  15. OK so Save to Evernote won't work for you. I was backtracking through your previous queries and found one of your CSV files on Importing notebooks through PDF. I converted that to an XLSM with a macro to move through the CSV entries and add them as new notes in a Notebook called Quotes. This works fine on my PC, I don't think there is anything that Excel 2007 can't handle so hopefully will work for you too. The bulk of the code adds synchronous execution to the good old Shell command, it was developed by a guru on Stack Overflow, and I just added the ConvertToEvernote macro. Before you use it
