  1. Odd issue happening here. Evernote crashes, not on opening or while I'm using it, but when I shut it down. It crashes EVERY time. Also, I've written an Applescript to resize my window and that causes it to crash as well. Any ideas? I've tried deleting the pref file. Then the pref file and the helper pref. Then I've uninstalled EVERYTHING, reinstalled a fresh copy (I use the version from the website, not the apple store) re-downloaded all my files... and it crashed when I shut down. I'm out of ideas. Please advise.
  2. Fantastic. Let me work on this for a day or two, but that looks simple. Thanks!
  3. I don't actually have a complete script. But I've designed several others to import files, assign tags, etc. What I really can't figure out is how to pull the created date out of the notes, and to search for a given tag.
  4. Great. Thanks for the help. Those work great. Is there a way to pull out the 'created date' from a note, rather than the current date?
  5. I have a lot of notes that come into Evernote from various automatic sources (drops into a specific folder, IFTTT, etc.) I'd like the bone of an Applescript that would help me organize this mess, all of which piles up in my inbox. Most of these automatic things are arranged to put specific tags on notes as they are created. I would like to create a Applescript that will search all my notes, find ones tagged with a particular tag, the rename that note with a title and a modified version of the note creation date. Finally I'd like the original tag deleted and new ones applied and have it mov
  6. Actually, I got it working. A little more awkward than before, but not much. If anybody is interested and has the same stuff I have, here's what I did: I've moved all my scripts over to Keyboard Maestro, then put a "Move mouse and click here" commend from keyboard maestro, then back to the Applescript to run the rest. I did upgrade my script to your TE expansion suggestion (actually, it didn't work as expected, but I added expand abbreviation and it worked). So I'm back up and running. Thanks for the help.
  7. Obviously, I'm not the best scripter in the world. Indeed, I may be the worst!
  8. Well, the TE isn't just a string, it's kind of a script with some selections. To work as it used to, I need to actually trigger and use Textexpander. Right now I'm working on running the whole process manually though applescript, then sending the results back to applescript. It's not working yet, and if I do get it working it will be clunky. I wish the old way still worked. It was perfect for a long time.
  9. That's a great idea. I'll experiment with that. Thanks.
  10. I used to have an applescript that worked well for me. It would create a note and named it based on the date, then place the cursor at the first space and TYPE (not paste, type) a brief word. The reason the typing is important is the word typed was a textexpander trigger word. This has worked great for years but it no longer does. Here is the part that no longer seems to be working. tell application "Evernote" activate tell application "System Events" keystroke return keystroke "..journal " keystroke return keystroke " " end te
  11. Was that a stupid question? I really don't know what it does or if I need it. I've read the .pdf data, and it's not specific.
  12. I just got the update to 2.0.4 and it asked me at the end if I wanted to use the helper app. The honest answer wasn't on one of the buttons: "I don't know." I have a lot stuff in my login items and I'm trying to keep it trimmed down. What exactly does the helper app do? If I don't activate it, will I unable to use the menubar menu or the firefox plugin (both of which i use a LOT). Or is this something that really does something esoteric and rare. How vital is it, and what features will I lose if I turn it off. Thanks.
