  1. Thanks. Yes I suppose the same concern does apply to password, but I just added 2FA and I think that password can more easily be reset than 2FA. Not sure about either really, but want to understand it better and have a good system in place in case I ever lose password or 2fa. I don't have an icloud backup of notes yet, but I want to make one, and I have a few questions about which backups would be secondary files: 1. An icloud backup would be a secondary file if it's exported as an html file, right? 2. Is the data that's automatically stored on a Mac (without setting anything up) considered secondary files that I would still have access to if i lost my 2fa/password? I understand that Mac's have a full copy of evernote data (by default) stored in ENML format (and store metadata in sqlite database). I have no idea how ENML or sqlite work or if/how I could recover from that, but i'm guessing that these are secondary files because they are a 'copy'? 3. Also wondering if ios devices and/or PC's automatically store a full copy of evernote database on them? If so, would those be secondary files that would still be available if i lost my 2fa or password? Thanks. Is there anywhere that I can find the script that you use to automate exporting to html? I want to make the same kind of automatic export but don't know how to set it up in apple script. I thought about automating this with Keyboard Maestro but it seems like apple script would probably be much better because it can operate in the background. Also, I'm not sure how I would make it export incrementally... does the apple script allow you to automate when it exports incrementally and in full? Is there any manual management/steps required to make it work well after you set the apple script up?
  2. Hi, if i have my database backed up on something like icloud and i have 2fa enabled, then would i still have access to the evernote files in icloud if i lost my 2fa phone and backup code? I want to use 2fa but also don't want to risk losing all my notes if something ever goes wrong.
  3. Thanks. I don't think that does what i'm looking for here though, it seems to only work on an individual note basis which would take a long time. I tried selecting multiple notes and don't see this option. I have about 2000 notes with the words "guitar chords" and, if i accidentally delete all of them , want to access/restore 'note history backup' for all of them. Does evernote have any kind of note history backup for the entire evernote database or by search terms or notebooks?
  4. Hi i'm wondering if Evernote has any kind of automatic continuous time-based interval backup system by default. Not sure what the best words for this are. What i mean is this: If i back up my mac and evernote on mac with something like time machine, it would automatically backup multiple copies of my database from different times, rather than just one backup. Does evernote do anything like this by default? I ask because a few months ago i had an issue where i accidentally deleted all of my notes with the words "guitar chords" in them, and (because there were thousands of notes) the best way that i could figure out how to recover them was to just restore the whole trash notebook in evernote, which has been a pain because it also restored hundreds of notes that i did want in the trash. Its very easy to accidentally make this mistake and, if i do make this mistake again, I want to have a better solution so that i can just easily restore it to the state that it was at before i made the mistake. I would use time machine for this but time machine is not working for me. If evernote itself doesn't do this, does anybody know of any alternatives to time machine? I have evernote for mac, pc, and ios devices- a solution on any of these would work for all of them i think. Actually as i'm writing this now, I'm not actually sure if i need a kind of automatic continuous time-based backup system if its easy to restore a single backup. Although i think it would be helpful because the last time that i made the mistake, i didn't realize that i had done it for several weeks. Can you please help/recommend what you would do to fix this kind of mistake and recover state of notes quickly? Thanks.
  5. Thanks so much! Hmm, I wasn’t aware of ENML and sqlite and not familiar with either. If something goes with evernote or i accidentally delete notes and I only had evernote on a mac, pc, and ios devices (but no other external hard drive or icloud backup), would i be able to recover and still access my notes? Would it be much more complicated to view it since its in ENML and sqlite? Or is it better to export frequently to HTML like you do? Curious how you back up to icloud drive…. do you use some sort of software to automate this (like maybe hazel or carbon copy cloner)? I’m not sure what you mean by "The way to automate this with scripting is to export the attachment, rename it, then import it.” Would i export it to HTML? And is there a specific script for this? I’ve only used applescript a handful of times and don’t understand most of it. I see the option to rename the audio file in evernote when i right click the file, there’s only a few hundred files so i’m thinking that doing it manually might be easiest.
  6. Thank you! How do you navigate to a note's finder folder? I don't see any option to view the note in finder via menu bar or right click in evernote...? I'm curious about doing this to increase redundancy. I thought that all files/notes in evernote were by default backed up locally in html format (in addition to being stored on evernote servers). Is this not true? Or do you do this to back up to external hard drive in addition to your computer? That works great! The only way that it could be better would be if i could make it automatically rename the audio files so that it includes the title of the note in evernote in the title of the audio file. Any idea if this is possible?
  7. Hi, i’m trying to bulk export audio file attachments in evernote to iTunes. Can you please help? I have a lot of notes in evernote with audio file attachments and i want to make playlists of all the audio files in an application like iTunes. I definitely also want to keep them as they are currently organized in Evernote at the same time though, don’t want to mess anything up. I just want to copy all the audio attachments, but i haven’t been able to find the attachments in the finder unless i manually download them one by one. Is there any way to see all of the audio file attachments in a finder folder and bulk copy all of them? Or do i need to download each one manually? Also, it would be helpful to automatically rename the audio files so that it includes the title of the note in evernote in the title of the audio file. Is there any way to do this automatically either with evernote or 3rd party software? Maybe Hazel? Or do i need to do this manually? Thanks, Dan
  8. Thanks! Ok i want to preserve notebook so i won't use ENEX.
  9. Hi I’m wondering is there a way to auto-change out a group of text in all of my notes. Use case: I use evernote for guitar chords and it would be easier to make all chords written in the same way. Ie 'Dbm' and 'C#m' are the same chord but C#m is easier to remember for me. Can i easily/automatically change every instance where Dbm is written to be C#m instead (in all of my notes)? (With either evernote or a 3rd party tool.) If so, how?
  10. Unfortunately this doesnt work for my specific use case, thanks for sharing though just learned something new. Thanks. Using Mac. Don't see any way to automate this without using clicks or opening that extra font window. Is there? Also, any way to do it with Keyboard Maestro?
  11. Hi I change the font size of text saved copied from internet to evernote every day. They always come in smaller font size like 12 and i always manually change them to 20. I’ve changed the default font size in evernote, but that doesnt affect the new notes with copy and pasted text. Is there any way to automate it so that evernote automatically changes all new notes to font size 20? Or is there any way to use/create a keyboard shortcut to change the font size of all the text in one note in one quick step? Thanks, Dan
  12. Hi I’m trying to import some audio recordings from evernote into itunes so i can list to them on my phone, but somethings not working. Could you please help? I’ve tried adding the songs from evernote in a few ways- right clicking and sending to itunes, dragging and dropping into itunes, and saving locally on my computer then using “add to library” in itunes. Either way, when the songs are added they will play fine on my mac but will not play on my phone and itunes says something like unable to play on my phone. And i notice that theres some issue with icloud i add songs to itunes from evernote, it shows me error messages like these: https://www.dropbox.com/s/0tnh617j0xpfh3z/Screenshot 2018-03-21 17.46.37.png?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/vwphfuygbtip2nl/Screenshot 2018-03-21 17.46.26.png?dl=0 Whats going wrong? How can i successfully import evernote recordings to itunes so i can listen on my phone? Thanks, Dan
  13. Hi I have 2 questions, Could you please help? 1. is there any way to change the size the text on all my notes at one time? 2.And is there any way to change the size of the text on all new notes that are added with the web clipper? I changed the font size in the settings and it works for all new notes that i type, but it doesnt affect notes added from the web clipper or notes that are already in my notebooks. Thanks, Dan
  14. here's some more info that i just discovered: There are no issues when i paste in plain text, it pasted totally fine. Is there a way to fixing this or should i get used to always pasting plain text out of evernote?
  15. Thanks gazumped! Sorry about the screenshot, heres a better one: https://www.dropbox.com/s/yi4onplhu2wlekg/Screenshot 2017-09-07 14.08.07.png?dl=0 I was using 10.12.5 and just updated to 10.12.5, same issue happening. The issue is only happening on my imac, not my older macbook. Restarting the system has not fixed it. Any other solutions>
