  1. I just upgraded to the 3.06 beta, and as someone said near the beginning of this thread, I'm considering going through the trouble of reverting to the previous version. The interface is too "pale", first of all -- it's kind of miserable to look at (sorry). I miss having the Created and Updated timestamps right there in the note. Also, when you pop open the Info window where you can edit the date if you like (sometimes I create notes in advance for meetings, and give them a Created timestamp for the meeting's scheduled time) -- you can no longer arrow up/down to advance the date/time values.

  2. Engberg, Just so you have an accurate bug report, I can make this happen by pasting into the middle of non-formatted blank lines, and also into Mac Mail. Thanks, and Merry Christmas. Dale
  3. Hello, You guys have done wonders with Evernote the last couple of years. I tested/watched the Mac application for a while before I migrated away from Journler, and I've been using both work and home for about a year now. The clipping ability is better than anything else I've ever seen, and the feature list has grown at an incredible rate. Having said all that, copying/pasting is still a nightmare if you have formatted text in your notes. I usually use bold & underline text as a header in my notes, and this is an example of what usually happens when I try to copy/paste either from one note to another, or from a note to Mac Mail: Here's my example note: Heading * a line item * another line item Here's the result of a copy/paste: Heading * a line item * another line item It just seems like such basic functionality. I know at least one other user has vented about this on here, but it really seems like there should be a way to fix this. Thanks, and Merry Christmas, Dale
  4. Hey guys, I did get the script to work for my notes, and at least one other Evernote user has used it successfully. It works, it just requires a little shell knowledge...and currently it uses the GNU date command (installed with fink) as opposed to the version that came with OS X. If I ever get more time to play with it I'll try to make it a little friendlier. For the time being, anyone who wants to give it a try can just contact me via the forum. Dale
  5. Well, I think it's finally working, at least well enough. I imported about 500 of my notes (the rest aren't going in there I think) and was able to sync them without a problem. I ended up changing the script to just remove all HTML tags (except , because I use that extensively), because the CSS-related tags were causing problems as well, and when I took those out, it just didn't look that great anymore. An obvious drawback to this is that any notes containing HTML code as part of the note content won't be imported properly. Then again, a workaround would be to (hopefully) enclose the HTML inside of tags or something similar. The next step will be importing some attached files and emails, so I'll see how that goes. At any rate I feel good enough about things to go ahead and sign up for a Premium account. Dale
  6. OK, it's the Apple converted space tag that Journler is throwing in there. Looks like it syncs if I take that out. Dale
  7. Hey all, There seems to be a lot of interest out there in migrating from Journler to Evernote. I wrote myself a little Perl script to take Journler XHTML files and build Evernote .enex files. Right now, I can import all of my Journler notes (1000+) into the Evernote Mac client, but the data isn't syncing. When I try to sync, I get the error "The content is not valid." Here's the .enex file for my test note: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> OS X screenshots 20080829T131200Z imported <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><br /><!DOCTYPE en-note SYSTEM "http://xml.evernote.com/pub/enml.dtd"><br /><en-note><br /> <style type="text/css"><br /> p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 11.0px Lucida Grande; color: #000000}<br /> p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 11.0px Lucida Grande; color: #808080}<br /> p.p3 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 11.0px Lucida Grande; color: #808080; min-height: 13.0px}<br /> p.p4 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Helvetica; min-height: 14.0px}<br /> p.p5 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Helvetica}<br /> span.s1 {color: #808080}<br /> span.s2 {color: #000000}<br /> </style><br /><p class="p3"><br /></p><br /><p class="p4"><br /></p><br /><p class="p5">http://guides.macrumors.com/Taking_Screenshots_in_Mac_OS_X</p><br /><p class="p4"><br /></p><br /><p class="p4"><br /></p><br /><p class="p5"><span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span>* Command-Shift-3: Take a screenshot of the screen, and save it as a file on the desktop</p><br /><p class="p5"><span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span>* Command-Shift-4, then select an area: Take a screenshot of an area and save it as a file on the desktop</p><br /><p class="p5"><span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span>* Command-Shift-4, then space, then click a window: Take a screenshot of a window and save it as a file on the desktop</p><br /><p class="p5"><span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span>* Command-Control-Shift-3: Take a screenshot of the screen, and save it to the clipboard</p><br /><p class="p5"><span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span>* Command-Control-Shift-4, then select an area: Take a screenshot of an area and save it to the clipboard</p><br /><p class="p5"><span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span>* Command-Control-Shift-4, then space, then click a window: Take a screenshot of a window and save it to the clipboard </p><br /><p class="p4"><br /></p><br /><p class="p5">In Leopard, the following keys can be held down while selecting an area (via Command-Shift-4 or Command-Control-Shift-4):</p><br /><p class="p4"><br /></p><br /><p class="p5"><span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span>* Space, to lock the size of the selected region and instead move it when the mouse moves</p><br /><p class="p5"><span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span>* Shift, to resize only one edge of the selected region</p><br /><p class="p5"><span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span>* Option, to resize the selected region with its center as the anchor point </p><br /></en-note><br /> > Moving forward, if there is anyone out there who wants to improve upon what I have thus far, please let me know. I'd love to share the script. The big thing to do (after fixing the Sync issue) is coming up with an easy way to get attached files from the Journler library into Evernote. Thanks, Dale
