This is the developer of EverTool, an Evernote editor helper. In this post, I would demonstrate why I create this tool, how this tool can help you enhance the productivity, and present all the features you can use in this tool. Thanks for gazumped suggested to post it on this forum.
As one of the Evernote user, I love Evernote and I think it is still the best note-taking tool. However, there are some features requested by lots of users, like Markdown, text style management, templates, etc.. As an engineer, I agree that the Evernote team has their roadmap to build and enhance this product. I think to build a successful product needs time and a thoughtful plan to make sure the new features fit most of the users.
But like other users, I still hope I can use Markdown, code highlight, and other features to enhance my Evernote productivity.
Therefore, I build EverTool, an Evernote editor helper.
What is EverTool?
EverTool is a kind of third-party app for Evernote. But it's not like other third-party apps. EverTool works independently from Evernote.
Working independently means two things:
EverTool will NEVER request the authorization from Evernote
Keep the original usage behavior of Evernote
Why do I think these two points are important?
Many users use Evernote to manage their data. Especially for business users, they use Evernote to save secret data and communicate with team members. When we use Evernote, we trust Evernote, but do you trust other third party integration apps they can fully access your data?
Another point is keeping original usage behavior. Evernote is an excellent tool. It already provides tons of useful features. Thus, when using EverTool, you don't need to change any usage of Evernote. EverTool is just a helper. You only use it when you need it.
How EverTool works?
It's super easy to use. Three steps make your note better:
Cut the text → Click one of the actions in EverTool → Paste to Evernote
In this section, I will introduce all the features of EverTool in version 0.3.0.
Before we started, just keep in mind, the usage is the same: cut and paste.
Text style management
When creating a note, we usually use the same font style to present the same level.
This feature will be handy when you want to reuse the text style. (It's similar to the styles pan of Microsoft Word).
This thread has great discussion about integrating Markdown in Evernote.
Here I provide the EverTool solution.
Resize images to the same width
When we import lots of images to Evernote, Evernote will use the original image width to present on the note. If the image is too big, it will be full width.
Think about if your note has many images and all of them present full width, your note will be very long and filled with images.
This action can help you resize all images to the same width in one click.
We know Evernote only provide one highlight color. This action can let users define any highlight color.
Transform Excel spreadsheets to Evernote native table
Some users hope Evernote can provide the more powerful table, like primary math function. But in my opinion, Excel or Google spreadsheet already do a really good job. We can keep Evernote as a presentation place and do the complicated calculation on Excel.
Therefore, what we need is transform the spreadsheets to Evernote table seamless.
This action support Excel, Google spreadsheet, Mac Numbers and Evernote table. Therefore, you can also use it to beautify your Evernote table! The table style is also customizable.
Url → Url + Title
This feature is based on my personal usage scenario. I usually paste links in my note, but it is just url not the title.
Of course, I can copy the title of the web page and alter the url name in the note, but it's too slow.
Thus, this action makes you select all urls and transform them to urls with the title.
Dear engineers, it's time to write your technical notes on Evernote!
EverTool supports 74 different highlight code themes. Engineers can write beautiful technical notes on Evernote.
In short, EverTool is an independent tool provided several useful features. It's just a helper but it's powerful.
All the features mentioned above are all customizable. You can define the font style, table style, highlight code as you want.
Besides, it supports on both Mac and Windows platform.
If you like this app, you can buy this app on Mac and Windows store to support me develop more useful features in the future.
It's a one-time payment and you can enjoy all the follow-up update.
