  1. @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 cause is, and finally fix it. @jayelevy I'm glad Spotlight is working for you too!
  2. @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 12 12:57 LocalNoteStore.sqlite-wal lrwxr-xr-x 1 llj staff 11 Jul 12 10:41 content -> ../content/ $ file -h content content: symbolic link to ../content/ Can you post the contents of your localNoteStore folder and the output of "file -h content"?
  3. 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): cd ~/"Library/Containers/com.evernote.Evernote/Data/Library/Application Support/com.evernote.Evernote/accounts/www.evernote.com/<id>/localNoteStore/" Create a symlink to ../content: ln -s ../content/ content Re-index files (replace <id> in the command below as necessary): mdimport ~/Library//Containers/com.evernote.Evernote/Data/Library/CoreData/com.evernote.Evernote/<id>/ENNote/_records Wait until done. You might see some dyld warnings about paths being ignored. Now your notes should (hopefully) be properly indexed in Spotlight. If this didn't work for you, try this other fix on Jens Willy's website: http://jenswilly.dk/2015/10/fixing-evernote-and-spotlight-indexing/#comment-3757837. Why is the symlink necessary? After following the instructions in Jens Willy's blog post, mdimport failed with lots of warnings: That's because mdimport was trying to access a non-existing folder. The symlink fixes that. I hope this helps, Jaume
  4. 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 limitation by creating a table and then pasting it to the list. This worked until version 7.x. I feel this would be a great feature.
  5. 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?
