  1. An alternative is to use a tally app on your iphone to give an incremental unique number for each important note, and copy that into the title of the note. That means I can also use the number in workflowy to refer to a single note. And I know that I can change anything else in the title and not worry about finding the note. I used to use a number based on date and time of note creation eg 160623142333 but that was just too long and unsightly
  2. Just tried this out. Linked from Chrome to a google drive pdf. Link working fine. Then edited the pdf in Goodreader on my iphone and synced up the changes. Now the original evernote link no longer works. It seems that the edited file has a different google file link and so the evernote link is broken. This works fine on Dropbox by the way. Presumably its a google issue? Correction: Actually I've never used direct links from dropbox to evernote, so their links may change when the file has been edited as well.
  3. I can see back and forwards on the note window, but not the main window (v6.0.4)
  4. Same for me. Can't see anyway to go back or forwards. (and whilst we're at it, can we have a keyboard shortcut on Windows for back and forwards? It exists on Mac....
  5. Okay I understand having seen the forum now. They have re-implemented "nested" tags in the same way as they are "nested" in the Mac and Windows desktop versions. I was thinking of the ways in which other apps use nested tags where a search on a parent tag brings up that tag and its children. It was a source of heated debate on this forum some years ago.
  6. I don't know, they've recently implemented nested tags in the new web version of Evernote, thus making it available in almost all platforms. Bringing it to mobile "should" be the next logical step. Really? Where? I can't see it. I've been using Web evernote quite a bit recently, so if they've done this I'd be very interested
  7. I agree entirely. You can do a complex tag search on ios by typing "tag:person tag:agenda" or doing an initial tag search and then typing 'tag:agenda' but you have to remember the tags exactly. I suspect we'll never see nested tags. that being said, handwritten notes is greatly appreciated, and for my purposes probably more important.
  8. When sharing an evernote to omnifocus; If I select 'public link' i get the 'https://...' link in omnifocus, as expected. If I select 'private link' I get the 'http://...' link again. I'd expect the 'evernote://...' link, which is indeed what happens if I try just to copy the link. This would seem to be a bug. Nic
  9. Just as an aside if anyone is still having trouble with classic links; I have been recently using the web version of Evernote on a work computer and it is now surprisingly robust. The copy note function in particular will provide you with the classic link and it is all set up to very easily edit the text of the link. It's worth a look.
  10. The macro has been taken out of a larger macro so you may need to debug it yourself. eve1508... is my unique number generated for each important note, just incase linking breaksdown. The steps are: generate the text of the link (eve1508...... etc) paste that into the note copy the link of the note select the link text ⌘K paste in the link of the note close the link edit box select the link ⌘K again insert a space after the evernote:\\\... link select all copy escape (without saving the edited link) The point behind the space after the link? If you don't do that then evernote will 'intelligently' assume you want an 'http: style link next time you paste. With the space you just get the text of the link in your clipboard, and you are good to go. Just don't save the link edit box with the space in as the link will no longer work (actually I think you won't be able to save it) I don't know how they have made the linking dynamic like this, but it is a pain. This looks complicated, but is now second nature to me and I have links everywhere which work fine with a single keyboard press in keyboard maestro Nic
  11. I don't know how they do this, and it all gets very confusing, but... If you are in EN and do a 'copy note link' from the menu, and then paste the link into a note in EN (even into the same note), you get an evernote:///... formatted link. If you then do the same paste into e.g. Textedit, you get a http:///... formatted link. So to get the evernote:/// link using keyboard maestro, you need to write a macro to a) copy the note link paste it into the note c) select the pasted link d) copy the text of the link (after using ⌘K) e) and you now have the TEXT of the evernote link in your clipboard which you can use anywhere. e.g. Set Variable ‘evekk’ to Text ‘eve%ICUDateTime%yyMMddHHmmss%’ Set Clipboard to Text ‘%Variable%evekk%’Type the ⌘V KeystrokeType the ⌃⌥⌘L KeystrokeType the ⌥⇧Left Arrow KeystrokePause for 1 SecondsType the ⌘K KeystrokeType the ⌘V KeystrokeType the Return KeystrokePause for 1 SecondsType the ⌘C KeystrokeType the Right Arrow KeystrokeType the ⌘K KeystrokeType the Space KeystrokeType the ⌘A KeystrokePause for 1 SecondsType the ⌘C Keystroke makes a unique (by time) link and you end up with the text in your clipboard
  12. iOS 8.4 Evernote 7.7.10.316568IPad air 1 LTElinks generated in evernote and pasted into external apps eg Launcher example link evernote:///view/30284/s1/0e747365-f35c-4a64-93c9-0170e3dbab61/0e747365-f35c-4a64-93c9-0170e3dbab61/ will take me to my main evernote landing page on MacOS, iphone etc but not on iPad, where it just opens the evernote app at wherever I was last using it
  13. Just downloaded the new version from the app store and really like it but... Links to specific notes from outside apps such as Launcher have stopped working on the iPad. They work fine on the iPhone, but on the iPad they just plank you into the app wherever you were last looking at.
  14. Its sort of an unsupported feature of Workflowy though isn't it? I think somewhere in their forum they talked about links to individual bullet points, and were at pains to say that the link wouldn't necessarily stay constant if you moved the bullet point around. That being said, I use this because it is so useful (although I use workflowy to evernote links much more).
