  1. Oddly enough, 32 hours after this post I opened Evernote iOS for the 6th or 7th time today and suddenly out of nowhere, a flood of new note clips started to appear and “sync”. Woukd love to understand what is going on with this. I’ve never experienced the same with the older apps. I immediately tried a new screenshot to clip it, thinking perhaps all was good; but it has yet to appear. I’m lost for words.
  2. Hi, I’m unable to save most clippings of images to Evernote in random uses cases. Most of the time it’s when trying to save an image for another app using the share sheet. Sometimes it works and other times it doesn’t. Problem is, I’m not aware without checking the app after every clipping — as the clipper always says “saved”. When it doesn’t work, the saved content simply never appears in Evernote. Would there be something needed with settings or permissions to make this more reliable?
  3. @aukirkFound a couple that were just that. Removed the reminder set on each and the tabs went away. Thanks again!
  4. Thanks! maybe it’s a shared note. I’ll dig into it. Appreciate the insight.
  5. Hi, I do not use Evernote for setting reminders. It currently shows a title for this (and notes) and unnecessarily takes up screen real estate at the top of my notes list with no way of removing it. I would love to be able to hide/disable these tabs from being a filtered view. On a small notebook screen, it could add a nice amount of screen height that doesn't seem necessary if I never tab between them. I have no need to view "Notes" or "Reminders" as titles at all times at the top of my app. I'd much prefer to just get to my first note listed. Thank you!
  6. Looking to somehow disable these links from appearing in the sidebar, see screenshot below. They add visual noise and take up screen real estate when I expand tags or notebooks. Is this possible? I'm running 10.4.3 on macOS Big Sur.
  7. For the side/flyover menu, changing the sort order doesn't help. My only work around at this time is to tap on "Notebooks" and go to the actual page of Notebooks. My stacks appear and are navigable. But it gets very tedious when I'm trying to float between stacks quickly on my phone.
  8. What you’re describing is the official Evernote share sheet option. Sadly, that feature doesn’t work for the articles I try to save in most instances, and the formatting it saves the page in is not very desirable. I’m using a custom iOS Shortcut that does a fantastic job of simplifying things by only saving the body of the article. This saves the content, and any images, in an easy to read format within Evernote. It’s very accurate and always works without issue. However, my shortcut doesn’t save the URL properly into the info icon area that you show above. And I also want to place a copy of the URL at the top of the article. I hope that explains my situation more clearly.
  9. Unfortunately not. I’m trying to create a custom shortcut. I’m struggling with using the variables and custom actions.
  10. Curious — could one possibly use this to copy/paste a tweet URL and create a nicely formatted tweet to appear within a note?
  11. Hi, I have a Siri Shortcut that does a great job of saving an article to Evernote with the share sheet, but I have two needs I have been unable to program correctly. I want to append the URL of the article I’m saving at the top of the note as a link. And I’d love to save the URL to that URL field of the note. Nothing I’ve tried has been able to solve this. Would anyone have a recommendation on what I can set in my action list to accomplish this?
  12. This is fantastic! Thank you so much @DTLow for making this a reality! I really appreciate it and plan to dig into it further to learn each aspect of this code. I hope you find it just as useful. Below is the full source I'm running at the moment. A few comments I had, I'm not sure what options you'd recommend. 1. In the note selector that pops up, the date overpowers the title. Might recommend minimizing date format and/or perhaps add some type of delimiter. 2. My pop-up window starts at 1 line only; even if there's more than one option to choose from. Is there a way to increase its height or make height dynamic? See screenshot attached. 3. If it doesn't find a match, should we display a dialog that indicates this? tell application "Evernote" to set theOriginalNote to item 1 of (get selection) tell application "System Events" to keystroke "c" using {command down} delay 1 set selectedText to the clipboard set searchQuery to "intitle:\"" & selectedText & "\"" set theLink to ObtainNoteLink(searchQuery) if theLink is not "" then set theLinkHTML to "<a href=\"" & theLink & "\">" & selectedText & "</a>" tell application "Evernote" set theHTMLCode to HTML content of theOriginalNote set theHTMLCode to my Replace_Text(theHTMLCode, selectedText, theLinkHTML) set HTML content of theOriginalNote to theHTMLCode end tell end if on Replace_Text(this_text, search_string, replacement_string) set prevTIDs to AppleScript's text item delimiters set AppleScript's text item delimiters to the search_string set the item_list to every text item of this_text set AppleScript's text item delimiters to the replacement_string set this_text to the item_list as string set AppleScript's text item delimiters to prevTIDs return this_text end Replace_Text on CollectnoteData(searchQuery) set noteData to {} tell application "Evernote" set theNotes to find notes searchQuery repeat with theNote in theNotes set theTitle to title of theNote set theDate to creation date of theNote set theLink to note link of theNote display dialog theTitle & " " & theDate & theLink set end of noteData to {theTitle & " " & theDate, theLink} end repeat end tell return noteData end CollectnoteData on ObtainNoteLink(searchQuery) set theLink to "" set noteData to CollectnoteData(searchQuery) if noteData is not {} then set noteList to {} set i to 0 repeat with noteInfo in noteData set i to i + 1 set end of noteList to i & " " & item 1 of noteInfo as string end repeat set i to (words 1 thru 1 of item 1 of (choose from list noteList with prompt "Select Note from " & searchQuery)) as integer set theNote to item i of noteData set theLink to item 2 of theNote end if return theLink end ObtainNoteLink
  13. Nice, I’ll give this a try this morning! Looks like I have a lot of dissecting to do on these last few steps to learn from. 👍🏻
  14. So CollectnoteData is a custom function you're creating?
