  1. I use PopClip, but I don't see where I can create my own styles anywhere. It supports the basics - bold, italic, underline - and I've got some plugins that do a few other things, but if I want to do something like automatically change the font or font size, there doesn't seem to be a plugin for that. That's why I ended up with Keyboard Maestro. At first I built the styles into KM, but I couldn't do code highlighting that way, so now I'm just using KM to cut and paste, and it calls the EverTool keystrokes in between. Bonus, it has a little floating menu that reminds me what the keystrokes are. PopClip extensions can be written in a variety of ways including AppleScript, so if you're familiar with that it might be easy to write something.
  2. If OP doesn't want to write AppleScript, you can trigger EverTool from Keyboard Maestro. It did not occur to me before that the EverTool key sequences were globally available. So in that case I'd use KM to select the current line and cut the text to the clipboard, then have KM send the EverTool key sequence for the desired format and paste the results. Easier than learning AppleScript if you don't know it, but at the price of paying for KM.
  3. I used EverTool for a few days, but the constant manually cutting and pasting was making me literally angry. I ended up buying Keyboard Maestro and just writing macros that select->cut->tranform->paste. It's not perfect, and it doesn't handle code highlighting, but it's a single key sequence for the the things I do most commonly (create header and sub-header styling). Unfortunately EverTool itself is not scriptable so I wasn't able to come up with a way of integrating it.
  4. Don't know if you solved this, but I experimented with Bear and came to the same conclusion you did. I ended up on Notion as a replacement, btw. Here's how I moved my notes from Bear to Evernote when I decided Bear wasn't ready for prime time. I selected the notes I needed to move, and exported them as HTML files. Opened EN, and dragged the HTML files into a folder in EN. Evernote won't let you import from the File > Import menu, except for .enex files, but if you drag the HTML file into a folder it will read it and import it. Everything came across for me. If you have images/attachments in Bear, you have to remember to click the "Export Attachments" option when exporting the notes. That will create a folder for your attachments, Evernote will follow the links in HTML to import them.
  5. Yeah, I've dropped back to a basic user as well, after being a paid EN user since release. I'm tired of updates that make things worse, and the utter lack of improvement in core functionality (e.g. the actual note editor, which still struggles to consistently format text). Maybe they'll find their footing again before I've migrated everything out, but I'm not hopeful. The entire team seems to have lost the plot.
  6. Never noticed that, but yup, it sure does. Maybe they're pushing Chrome, for the same reason that they only implemented an "attach from Google Drive" button, and not say, Dropbox or OneDrive.
  7. That confuses me. Ive had the cross-site blocking option turned on for a long as it's been an option. It's on now.The clipper works perfectly for me and installs without an issue as long as I get it from Safari Extensions page. Glad it worked for you all the same.
  8. Instal the extension from https://safari-extensions.apple.com/details/?id=com.evernote.safari.clipper-Q79WDW8YH9 . Go there using STP and it will install into STP. Shouldn't have any failures or other craziness. Safari is working up to full-on blocking of extensions downloaded from non-Apple sources, to increase security.
  9. I can't speak for everyone else, but code block is working for me on all my Macs, all on Safari.
  10. Don't know if this will fix it for you, Go into the System Preferences -> Dock and check the "Prefer tabs when opening documents:" preference. If it says "Always", change it to something else. "In Full Screen Only" is a good option. I have mine set to "Always" and it does what you're describing, so there's a good chance that yours is set that way as well.
  11. There isn't a way to do this inside the Evernote application itself, at least that I've seen. The recent search entries are stored in the ~/Library/Preferences/com.evernote.Evernote.plist which can be opened with Xcode (and probably other things, but I've only ever used Xcode). If you open that file, you'll find a recentSearches.<a long UUID number> key with sub-keys for the saved recent searches. You can delete the sub keys to remove whatever recent search you want. Delete the key with Evernote closed (or it will save on exit). You can delete the entire main key to wipe out all the searches, and it will be recreated automatically but if you do that, you have to close EN, delete the recentSearches key, open EN, close EN, and open it again. When you open it the first time after deleting the key, the recent searches still show up (I'm not 100% sure about why just yet) but if you don't do any searches then close and reopen, they're gone. Anyway, it's a bit of a hassle as you can see. Probably easier to just let them be. Only 5 recents are saved, so it's not like the list is going to grow unmanageable over time.
  12. If you hold down the "ALT" key while clicking the Help menu, you'll get a Troubleshooting option at the bottom of that menu. You could try recreating the indexing (Full Text Search index) to see if that helps.
  13. At least for the direct download (non-app store) version, it's ~/Library/CoreData/com.Evernote.evernote/ Inside that directory you'll see another folder named with some UUID, and in there /ENNote/_records/ which contains all the .enspot files. If you exclude that, it should stop indexing.
  14. Hi, I'm not experiencing that on my MBP Touch Bar. It works as intended for me. Some issue with the Evernote install maybe?
  15. It does. Perhaps just not in the way you were installing it. See the messages above yours. Go to the Safari extensions website and install it from there: https://safari-extensions.apple.com/details/?id=com.evernote.safari.clipper-Q79WDW8YH9
  16. Glad it worked out @steveb14. Interestingly, I am not having a problem with it in private windows either. Gotta be some additional setting or messed up .plist.
  17. Totally possible. I haven't switched versions in some time. The backup is definitely the key though, and you can't be too cautious with stuff that might be irreplaceable!
  18. I've moved between the App Store and direct-download version at various times in the past without an issue. That's not a guarantee of anything, because things might have changed, but the last time I did it I was able to just download the application from the Evernote site and overwrite the App Store version on my computer. Make sure Evernote, and the Evernote Helper are exited first. Perhaps someone else who has done it more recently might know of new issues. Do backup your offline notes, especially.
  19. I can't say how widespread this is but it is definitely not a universal problem. I'm having no issues with the web clipper on any browser under MacOS. Chrome, Firefox, Safari all working as expected on three iMacs and a MacBook Pro, all on Mojave. Doesn't mean there isn't a bug or an issue, just suggesting that it might be a lot more localized and limited than you're suggesting. Also, if you mention what you might have done to resolve the issue, there are a lot of experienced posters here who might be able to help you work it out.
  20. I'm not a fan of serif fonts either. I've got literally everything that can be set, set to sans-serif fonts (IBM Plex Sans is my current favorite for general-purpose screen usage). I'm probably wrong, but I think it's been largely shown that serif fonts are easier to read (at least, in printed form) because the shapes are more distinct, and that's probably why it is the default for the "reader"-type view. But I'd be much happier being able to choose my own. I guess I'll submit that as a feature request. There really isn't a need for it to be hard-coded, the clipper should be able to access the application preferences and use the fonts we've chosen.
  21. So, at least in my experience, the web clipper ignores the font selection in Evernote itself. The font choices in the application only affect what you type yourself. If you clip a page as "Article" it uses the fonts from the web page. If I clip an article from CNN, the fonts are a sans-serif, 18pt font that Evernote calls "CNN". But if you clip in "Simplified Article" mode, it uses a reader view, where the font changes to a Serif font, presumably because it was decided that was an easier font to read. As far as I know, this behavior is hard-coded and cannot be set by preference.
  22. For what it's worth, which is probably very little, the clipper works for me on 10.14.0 and now 10.14.1 (currently build 18B67a) without issue, on two iMacs and a new MBP. It works on both Safari 12.0.1 (14606. and Technology Preview Release 67 (Safari 12.1) I only mention that to suggest that the problem is more likely to be some local configuration issue or messed up preference file rather than an overall broken extension. It might be worthwhile to create a new account on your Mac and see if the clipper will work from there. That would narrow the problem down to a configuration issue, probably in Safari. Or you could just completely reset Safari on your live profile, but that might be extreme.
  23. That was the response I got, so on the one hand I'm glad they are apparently aware of it. On the other, I'm unhappy they broke it. I'm not going to disagree with any of the things you said, but man, despite those issues it is STILL hard to find a viable 100% replacement for Evernote. Lots of apps do some things better, but then don't do other things at all (or do them worse). Because I use virtually all of EN's functionality, it's been a real struggle to find a way off of it. I'm using Notion as well. It's pretty awesome so far, especially if one your goals is to make well-formatted pages easily. I've migrated a huge chunk of my EN notes over, and I should be done before m EN subscription expires. I like it much better than OneNote or even Bear, Notion is still a long way from feature parity with EN, unfortunately.
  24. It's working fine for me, Evernote and all other extensions are behaving normally. Apple isn't planning on stopping or breaking extensions per se, just that they want them on the App Store and have "broken" the ability to install an extension from a vendor website. I ran into that with one extension already, although I can't think of which, but it was also available on the Safari extension site, and it installed fine from there. The Evernote clipper is not available in the App Store currently, but is on the Safari Extensions site, and it will install from there properly. http://safari-extensions.apple.com I assume eventually the Safari extension site will go away and everything will be migrated to the Store.
  25. If the Evernote application itself is not being shown in Spotlight, that could be a Spotlight issue. Note indexing for Spotlight is done by a program within Evernote that has to make your notes readable by Spotlight...but that would not affect the ability to find the application itself. FWIW, I'm having the note indexing problem on 4 Macs (all Mojave) that seem to point back to the EvernoteSpotlightImporter bundle. Specifically, a code signature error is thrown by Spotlight's mdimport when trying to access EvernoteSpotlightImporter. I'm going to email support to see what might be up. I've removed and reinstalled the application, and reset Spotlight indexing on MacOS as well as reindexing within Evernote.
