  1. > The internal search of EN is working. It is indeed. > In this thread the discussion is about a function of MacOS not being able to find information inside the EN database except for words in titles. This is an external search into the EN data. It is an external search that is enabled by a piece of code called Spotlight plug-in. The plug-in allows the Spotlight service understand how Evernote notes are stored so that it can index them and display them when they match a search query. The plug-in is not written by Apple. It is written by Evernote, and it's part of the

Yes, I understand that. > Support teams do not fix bugs; they only provide workarounds if they exist and report bugs to the Development team. Development teams have their own ticketing system for tracking code changes. Well, that's Evenote's choice, I know of other companies that handle tickets differently, like Atlassian. The point is that I, as a paying customer,
  3. How can they be working diligently to "fix the issue as soon as possible" and the same time change the ticket status to 'inactive'? Shouldn't the ticket be transitioned to status "in progress" or "working on it" or similar? This doesn't make any sense. At all.
  4. Should we call this Spotlight-gate? This is an old and recurring issue that Evernote apparently can't get right and, in my case in particular, is a terribly frustrating situation. I make heavy use of Spotlight, and Evernote 7.9 worked beautifully with it. I could search both title and contents of notes reliably. 7.10 cripples Evernote, and to add insult to injury, the release notes that accompany that version state: "Your notes had stopped appearing in Spotlight Search. But we fixed it". I provide instructions on how to revert back to Evernote 7.9 in hopes that they will be useful to some
  5. @DTLow That didn't help me either, and, if I understand it correctly, now it is clear to me why. The Recreate Spotlight Search Index menu item recreates the Evernote Note metadata files located in this folder: ~/Library//Containers/com.evernote.Evernote/Data/Library/CoreData/com.evernote.Evernote/<id>/ENNote/_records/ (which works nicely) and requests Spotlight to re-index them. And that last part fails in the same way "mdimport" failed in my tests: there is a path mismatch that prevents Spotlight from indexing the metadata. I hope Evernote can look into it, find out what the root
  6. @jayelevy You're welcome! The warnings you see are the same warnings I got before I created the symlink. Is the symlink in the localNoteStore folder, and did you create it with "ln -s"? This is what it looks like on my end: $ pwd ~/Library/Containers/com.evernote.Evernote/Data/Library/Application Support/com.evernote.Evernote/accounts/www.evernote.com/158389171/localNoteStore $ ls -l total 7768 -rw-r--r--@ 1 llj staff 794624 Jul 11 13:16 LocalNoteStore.sqlite -rw-r--r--@ 1 llj staff 32768 Jul 12 12:57 LocalNoteStore.sqlite-shm -rw-r--r--@ 1 llj staff 2377272 Jul
  7. Ever since I upgraded my work and home MBPs to High Sierra (macOS 10.13), Spotlight only seems to index the titles of my notes, I can't search for their contents. None of the tricks and workarounds recommended on these forums helped me, Evernote support told me it was a known issue and they were working on it. Today I spent some time (again) troubleshooting this issue after installing Evernote 7.2.2 from scratch, got lucky and could fix it. I share it here in hopes that it can be useful to others: Launch Terminal and change directory to (replace <id> below as necessary):
  8. I administer several applications at work and use Evernote mainly to write how-tos and other documentation like installation procedures, reference and troubleshooting articles. I make a huge use of lists and have noticed that tables: help keep information neatly organized (like commands to run, options the user has, etc), like this: prevent multiline text to be pasted as list items, like this: Unfortunately, it looks like Evernote has never supported inserting tables in lists (at least since November 2016, when I became a Plus member). I worked around this limitat
  9. This is a must-have feature, so I came here to upvote this idea. Evernote Mac Team: This much needed functionality was requested in 2013, so we are going to get it any time soon, right?
