  1. Evernote added a limit to .ENEX file sizes because some .ENEX importers couldn't handle large sized files, so large .ENEX exports are now split in the way you describe. To stop Evernote from splitting .ENEX exports, go to Tools / Options /Note; in the "Note merge options" section, look for "Split export enex files by [] MB" and set the value there to 0. Reference:
  2. You're welcome. You could probably use Windows Task Scheduler to automate the whole thing.
  3. The Evernote staff (I'm not one) appreciate all feature requests, and there's nothing in this one to not "approve". This one's been made before and been discussed pretty thoroughly, and for the sake of the forums here, I've merged your request and ensuing discussion with an already existing identical one. Feel free to upvote at the top left of the topic...
  4. This seems to be something we'd call a "preponderance"...
  5. A simple PowerShell + ENScript solution: # You may need to modify this according to the location of ENScript.exe $ENscript = "C:\Program Files (x86)\Evernote\Evernote\ENScript.exe" # Create an empty file for input into ENScript command $out_file = "blank.txt" $pre_file = "" $pre_file | out-File $out_file -encoding ASCII # Get the System date and format it to the Evernote expected format $CurDate = Get-Date -Format "yyyy-MM-dd" # Create notes... $Notebook = "Work - Journal" $NoteTitle = '"' + $CurDate + " - " + $Notebook + '"' # DEBUG: write notebook and title to console #Write-Host "NoteTitle = " $NoteTitle " Notebook = " $Notebook & $ENscript createNote /i $NoteTitle /n $Notebook /s blank.txt $Notebook = "Work - TO DO" $NoteTitle = '"' + $CurDate + " - " + $Notebook + '"' & $ENscript createNote /i $NoteTitle /n $Notebook /s blank.txt $Notebook = "Personal - TO DO" $NoteTitle = '"' + $CurDate + " - " + $Notebook + '"' & $ENscript createNote /i $NoteTitle /n $Notebook /s blank.txt $Notebook = "Personal - Notebook" $NoteTitle = '"' + $CurDate + " - " + $Notebook + '"' & $ENscript createNote /i $NoteTitle /n $Notebook /s blank.txt #TODO: delete blank.txt if desired #EXTRACREDIT: Make an array of notebook names so you can use a loop to create # each note title and the associated note Not particularly elegant. I am not an expert PowerShell programmer.
  6. Note that the whole reason that there's an option for this is that some people want initial focus to go to the title entry, and some people want it to go directly to the note, since title is assumed to be the first line of the note if not explicitly entered. There is no "poor UX" about it, because there's no obvious best choice.
  7. Yeah, that's what I thought the difference would be; something not getting flushed properly, though I didn't figured that the registry would be the problem. We don't worry about shutdown in the software I work on, so I'm not all that familiar with all of the issues (though I did check in with the oracle: https://devblogs.microsoft.com/oldnewthing/20170329-00/?p=95855). So in any case, looks like there is a difference between the different sequences, and well spotted/remembered @Don Dz: I almost never reboot if I can help it, and haven't experienced this problem, so all I had to go on was what Microsoft and the Internet says about shutdown (I don't keep notes on Evernote issue, and mainly rely on my own non-ECC brain memory). Ha-ha -- from the Department of No Good Deed Goes Unpunished. We have some similar issues around registry settings, which we use a lot, and it doesn't help that sometimes several settings are related such that if you change one you need to change others as well. And yes, we all know that we're not supposed to allow direct access to member variables, but sometimes the rules take a back seat to expediency, and forget (until it's too late) that expediency is not really such a hot driver.
  8. What do you think a File/Exit does that a reboot doesn't? Both are going to shut down the Evernote processes. As long as Evernote's shutdown procedure is clean, quick, and orderly it should be pretty much the same thing. No guarantees on that, though. On a reboot request, you get a couple of seconds before the system takes you down. The critical thing at that point would be to flush the database to disk. Sync operations would be a secondary thing, since you can always pick those back up when you come back up again. Even so, there's an escape hatch that lets a process hold up system shutdown by raising a user message. I don't know whether Evernote employs that technique, though. We're really in @dcon land here.
  9. Rebooting to me means shutting down and restarting ones computer. If that's what they're doing, then I'd guess that that accomplishes the same thing as File/Exit.
  10. I'm guessing that he's trying to use a note book that's shared to him as the notebook to save widget notes. It's probably restricted to notebooks that are actually from your own account, not from some else's, somewhat like not being able to create tags in a notebook that someone shared to you, perhaps..
  11. I see you've already posted on the Evernote Stack Overflow forum, which is where this sort of question belongs, I think.
  12. Yeah, later on I gave it a shot, too. No dice for me, either. Oh well.
  13. I usually think of that sort of activity as a jobs program for QA types... Hope you're enjoying your new gig. Do they want dark mode too?
  14. AH, OK. I don't do that sort of thing myself. I think I'd wind up making way too many separate tags. Just doesn't seem worth the bother. I don't use tags as a navigation system, though I understand that people do. I have a "Book" tag, sure, but I'd use other means, like a text search, to do the other thing. But for the tag case thing, you're welcome!
  15. You didn't say whether you tried a reboot before re-installing. A pain, yes, but might work. Another thing, if you can't restart Evernote, you should Use Task Manager to make sure that all Evernote processes are shut down. Then retry to launch as usual.
  16. Well, the "tabs" would be encoded in the Evernote ENML markup, and that wouldn't change between different platforms. Maybe it's just a configuration difference in the embedded . Just for experimentation's sake, I whipped up a simple indentation test; the first some plain indentations, the second, a bulleted list, something like the following: Unindented Indented 1 Indented 2 Indented 3 List item 1 item 1.1 item 2.1 item 1.2 Here's the ENML for that: <en-note> <div> <div><b>Indent Test</b></div> <div><br/></div> <div>Unindented</div> <div style="margin-left: 40px;">Indented 1</div> <div style="margin-left: 80px;">Indented 2</div> <div style="margin-left: 120px;">Indented 3</div> <div><br/></div> <div>List</div> <ul> <li><div>item 1</div></li> <ul> <li><div>item 1.1</div></li> <li><div>item 2.1</div></li> <ul> <li><div>item 1.2</div></li> </ul> </ul> </ul> <div><br/></div> <div><br/></div> </div> </en-note>]]> I see the "tabs" used by simple indentation as absolute pixel offsets, while the "tabs" used in a bullet list are implicit in the list markup. I'd guess that the latter case is what's different among different platforms due to the implicit indentations for list, but I don't know for certain.
  17. ?? Are you having problems with the web version of Evernote or one of the desktop versions (Windows or Mac)?
  18. I suppose that you could try using the Evernote web client (https://www.evernote.com/Login.action) in the Paperwhite's browser, but I'd give it 50/50 chance that it would work at all.
  19. It's the note's source URL, for example, if it comes from, say, a web clip operation, or yo do a cut/paste from a web page to create the note. I's also displayed in the note Info panel, the "URL" entry, or if you use one of the list views, it's in the "Source Url" column. No way that I know of to remove that field from the header panel above the editing toolbar, or to even configure that panel in general.
  20. While you're waiting for this to happen (if it ever will), you should consider using Evernote reminders to manage your most urgent items. Reminders are displayed in a separate note list above your standard note list and that list can be configured to be sortable by due date or manually (i.e., you can drag notes into any order you please).Got something urgent? Make it a reminder, and it will go into the reminders list; when it's finished, mark it done (and maybe move it to a different notebook) For the basics: https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/208314338-How-to-use-reminders.
  21. So this is really nothing to do with AutoHotKey, then. Just the behavior of Evernote as it's been for some time. It'd be nice to know the rationale behind the prompt. Maybe a security issue? It could certainly be an attack vector, and I'd guess that AV probably wouldn't pick it up if it were malicious. But that's just guesswork on my part.
  22. Yeah, I can replicate that, but I'm not sure why it's not picking up the image. Maybe it needs to have an actual web link (http:// or https://)?
  23. Please post a link to the forum topic you're referencing... If the error coming from the .exe that you are creating, and that's the "some-file.exe" you see in the error message? I don't see how Evernote is getting into the mix here.
  24. Have to ask these questions; sometimes people don't know how do check things out for themselves. Plus the fact that that all links, internal and web links, are working fine for me, at least in (308702) Prerelease, and I can't recall them being broken, since I use them all the time. What type of link is it? A web link?
