  1. In the end, I was able to get pretty close to what I wanted using "Shortcuts" fka "Workflow." Kudos to the people over at Automator.fm who showed me how to use multiple magic variables: I was not able to grab the GMail URL without using the web based GMail on my phone, which I didn't want to do, but this is only a click or two extra. Hope it helps someone else!
  2. I'm pretty sure that this is asking too much, but here's my ultimate dream: 1) I receive an email on my GMail account, I read it on my iphone. 2) There is an interesting snippet I want to save in Evernote, so I highlight what I want to save and create a new evernote note containing the text.... from my iphone. 3) The note ALSO contains the individual GMail URL for that specific email, so if I want to reference back to the original email, all I need to do is click the link. Any ideas?
  3. Wow. That's not at ALL arrogant. It's funny how some people come here to help other users, and some people seem to come here just to tell other users how they're doing it all wrong. At any rate, one could make the argument that no user should ever click the "bold" button above the text editor. You're supposed to use CMD-B. Often times there is not a "right" or "wrong" way to organize something. It's a personal preference, and good software (I believe) gives people options to do things different ways depending on what just "feels" best to them. I tried switching over to tags a while back,
  4. I have the Mac version, and can't seem to find that option in the View menu. Is it windows only?
  5. One other question about that... when I click on a tag and get the list of matching notes, is there a way to see the text of the tag I clicked on at the top (instead of just the icon indicating "All Notes" have been filtered by tag)?
  6. Ok, this actually may have really helped me. I had not put together in my mind that I could use nested tags to replicate stacks of notebooks. Even better I could make sub-notebooks as well, right? The only real thing I'd be missing would be the ability to make a new note by default with the tag I'm currently viewing. I could live without that... unless you had a clever workaround for that?
  7. When I open a notebook stack, and see the notebooks contained in it, that actually helps me remember the process by which I am working on a project. For instance, I was working on a project where I was having to make legal filings for a Public Utilities Commission proceeding. I'm not a lawyer, and I had never made a legal document in my life. I kept stumbling though the mechanics of how to format pdf-a's, how to check the most current version of the service list, etc, having to re-look up the process each time. I was filing infrequently enough that I had completely forgotten that I had made ev
  8. Thanks for the quick reply, but I think I may not have expressed myself very well: While I understand the real world "notebook" analogy, I don't think a piece of software needs to limit its functionality just because the real world system upon which it is modeled has a shortcoming or limit. There are most definitely filing systems that allow the same file to be effectively "stored" in more than one place. Hard links, symbolic links, and aliases are examples. I was a big user of aliases... maybe that's why I'm wanting them here. I explained at the end of my admittedly long first post
  9. I think this is a HUGE missing feature for a number of reasons: First, I'd argue that letting the same note live in multiple notebooks is a much better, less dangerous feature than "Copy to Notebook." I can't really imagine very many scenarios where one would actually want to carry duplicate notes that didn't update one another, with the exception of using a note as a template to start out a new yet unrelated note. Second, some people's brains work more visually than others, and tags don't work for these people. I'm one of them. I need to see notes visually in notebooks for me to be
  10. Oh, and also a big me too on the awesomeness of this Applescript!!! Works like a charm in Keyboard Maestro!
  11. This is a big me too!!! I've just started using Evernote, so not really sure what the backstory is on this, but this is really irritating! Why not just have the two options available via the menu bar with shortcuts attached? I don't get it....
  12. I see. Thinking out loud: A stack called Script Assignments 2016. In that a notebook for each script. In that the actual script, plus the responses tagged by student. I think the email route probably won't work, because I'll keep having to change the default inbox notebook. I use gmail via the web interface, and in my first quick test the clipper seemed pretty good actually. That would allow me to select the notebook and the tag without having to go into the app to organize. Is there something hinky about the clipper I should know about? Lastly, I wish there were a way to have a
  13. Thanks for the quick response. Ideally, I don't want to have to go into Evernote at all to get this stuff in. I do have a paid account, but the fact that those notes go to the inbox was less appealing to me. I'm not averse to IFTTT or some other helper application if it could automate the filing for me. I looked through IFTTT but it didn't seem like it was that flexible. Is the Evernote Mac App Applescriptable?
  14. I teach at a film school, and over the course of the year my class produces 14 scripts, and everyone in the class must submit notes on each script. They send these scripts, and the notes, to me via email. I would like to move all this information into Evernote but am a little bit confused about the best way to organize all this. Here's my wish list: 1) I would like to get the emails into Evernote as painlessly as possible. The webclipper seems great, especially being able to create new notebooks when necessary. Though can it create a new notebook within an existing stack? 2) For
  15. It is unlikely, because this can be handled with other software. No sense re-inventing the wheel. Evernote has some other priorities they are working on. I disagree. In fact, the lack of this feature has been the primary reason that I haven't fully adopted Evernote. That said, however, I don't want to permanently alter the file size of images. I just want to be able to zoom out so I can see the whole photo at once, yet still retain all the original data. I use my iphone to take pictures of important documents, which I store on my computer for easy access. It's easier than a scanner. However,
