  1. Yes, "Ctrl + 1" means press Control and 1. The plus sign means "in addition to".
  2. You should be able to easily change it to work with any language. You'll need to modify the name of the Font dialog. Change the word "Font" to be whatever your one is: WinWait Font, , 5 And then on these two lines: Send !y%weight% ; StyleSend !s%size% ; Size You'll need to make sure the keyboard shortcuts still work in your language. Here is my Font dialog. Notice how there is an underline under the 'y' of 'Style', and under the 'S' of 'Size'. That is the shortcut key. Have a look in your one and find out what letter it is, and then change the two lines of the script to match. I've highlighted in red the two letters in the snippet of code above. Save it and reload, and it should work for you!
  3. Ah well, perhaps "programmatically" was a poor choice of words. I can't figure out how one would do that in AutoHotKey
  4. For your use case (multi-line), you could delete the line in the script that says "Send {Home}+{End} ; Select the current line ", and just select the text yourself before pushing the hotkey. I can't think of any way to programmatically determine whether a heading is one line or multi-line.
  5. Thanks for the feedback. I'm using Win10 as well (and 7), so must be some other trickery going on. I've added the comma into the OP. The {tab} should be unneccesary as we're sending alt+y and alt+s to switch between those two fields. Was it failing to switch?
  6. @xaa I've just made a couple of changes to the script which makes it a lot more reliable. There were a few times that keystrokes were getting missed in the Font dialog.
  7. I totally agree, but I wish more people would give this script a go. I had almost quit using Evernote in frustration until I got this going. I actually use a great bit of software for journaling called "The Journal" by DavidRM, and it supports styles perfectly. I can't understand why Evernote can't do the same....
  8. Thanks for the kind words Arcanjo! I've gone and updated the main script to make it easier for people to add their own styles, have a look.
  9. Have you read the book "Getting Things Done" by David Allen? It absolutely changed my life, and Zendone (which you mention), processes tasks exactly in the way Getting Things Done talks about. I could not recommend that book enough.
  10. Jorge: Oh. My. God. I just discovered Zendone today, and for the first time ever I finally have a GTD software system that works exactly the way that David Allen wanted. I can't even tell you how happy I am. ThinkingRock was the closest I've got before this, but your solution with the amazing Evernote integration is almost making me cry, it's so amazing. And the keyboard shortcuts........ <3 Thank you so much. danproveto: Why not just share the zendone-work calendar from your personal Gmail account to your work Gmail account? Seems perfectly effective and easy to me.
  11. The problem here is that ArthurC has used the wrong method for blocking Internet Explorer, that's all. IE sets the Windows-wide proxy setting and uses that setting when it connects to the internet. Evernote is doing eveything exactly right in this case, you would absolutely want Evernote to use the Windows-wide proxy setting. To stop IE from accessing the internet, block iexplore.exe in your firewall settings. Changing the Windows global proxy settings is absolutely the wrong way to do it, and will break a lot of software, not just Evernote.
  12. Except not. This seems to be something useful on the Windows Desktop client only. One of the key points in this request is to have it work across all devices supported by Evernote. I do not see anywhere in the original request that the font changing should be available on all platforms, just that whatever font is set in Windows needs to be available in all platforms. The request for a button or a change to the font list seems like a Windows request to me.
  13. Here you go Xenna, just use my script to set up hotkeys for any font choices / sizes / colours you wish. It's very very easy. Create hotkeys to set predefined font and H1, H2, H3 styles
  14. Change the first line to this and it should work for both the main EN window and the single note window:GroupAdd, EN_Windows, ahk_class ENMainFrameGroupAdd, EN_Windows, ahk_class ENSingleNoteView#IfWinActive, ahk_group EN_Windows Thanks Scott, I've updated my post.
  15. I use a lot of scripts that would only make sense for me and they way I use Evernote, but let me know what you're looking for and I'd probably be able to make one for you.
  16. With this script you can press Control + Shift + 1 through 9, and it will set user defined custom styles to your selected note text. If I haven't made any parts of this tutorial easy to follow, please let me know. I use a lot of AutoHotKey scripts to automate Evernote, and I thought I'd share some of them. AutoHotKey is an incredible bit of (free) software that can automate anything that you can physically do with your computer. If you don't have a copy, you'll need to install it for this to work. To make sure your script is running every time you start Windows, do this. I work on a lot of documentation in Evernote, and I wanted a way to easily set standard heading and paragraph styles. I created a little script that let's me send Ctrl + Shift + 1 through 9 to set various styles that I have defined. Here's the script, and then I'll explain how it works: #IfWinActive, ahk_exe evernote.exe ^1::SetFontStyle("bold", 18) ^2::SetFontStyle("italic", 16) ^3::SetFontStyle("bold", 14) ^Space::SetFontStyle("regular", 12) #IfWinActive SetFontStyle(weight, size) { currentSendMode := A_SendMode ; Get the current Send Mode SendMode Event ; Event mode works better in the Font dialog Send {Home}+{End} ; Select the current line Send ^d ; Open the Font dialog box WinWait Font, , 5 Sleep 200 Send !y%weight% ; Style Send !s%size% ; Size Send {Enter} SendMode %currentSendMode% } The first hotkey Control + Shift + 1 sets the font to be 18pt bold. The second hotkey Control + Shift + 2 sets the font to be 16pt italic. If you want to change the settings to suit yourself, just edit the lines in the middle that are marked. You can make yourself as many hotkeys as you like, here's the format for doing them: https://autohotkey.com/docs/Hotkeys.htm Here's the explanation: First off is the #IfWinActive command. This means the hotkeys will only be active if the Evernote window is in the foreground. The next lines call a function named SetFontStyle when you press a hotkey. "^+1::" means if Control (^), Shift (+) and the number 1 key are pressed at the same time, it knows to run the function with a font style of "bold" and a font size of "18". In the SetFontStyle function, "Send ^d" sends the keystroke Control + D, to bring up the font dialog box. We then wait for the Font dialog window to pop up. Next line tabs to the font style part of the box and sets it as bold, then tabs to the font size and sets it as 18 points. We then hit enter and exit the dialog. Simple! Hope this helps someone. --- If you have another language than English, please follow these instructions to make it work with your language: You'll need to modify the name of the Font dialog. Change the word "Font" to be whatever your one is: WinWait Font, , 5 And then on these two lines: Send !y%weight% ; StyleSend !s%size% ; Size You'll need to make sure the keyboard shortcuts still work in your language. Here is my Font dialog. Notice how there is an underline under the 'y' of 'Style', and under the 'S' of 'Size'. That is the shortcut key.

Save it and reload, and it should work for you!
  17. That's great for expanding everything but not collapsing just the stacks. Hit the minus key on the keypad to collapse them.
  18. Much like in every other Windows application, you can select the top stack and press the asterisk key on your numberpad. (The * key) This will not work by pressing shift-8.
  19. Incorrect. Copy the note link, rather than Share > Copy Note URL. Totally different options. One will start with "evernote://" and is private, and the other starts with "http://" and is public.
  20. This is a brilliant idea!! Can I suggest as an alternative to use Data Matrix codes instead of QR Codes. They're essentially the same thing, but require less pixels for an Evernote link than a QR Code does, which means you can print them smaller while still being readable (see below). Any app that reads QR Codes will read Data Matrix as well.

  21. If you swype from the "Swype" key to the "Number" key it will bring up a list of special characters and TAB is one of them, and I know for a fact that that has been there since the earliest versions. Maybe holding down Space is only in the newer versions, so if you want to update your Swype, jJust download it from here: https://beta.swype.com/ I can't see how you're expecting Evernote to add functionality that is entirely to do with your keyboard. Just replace the keyboard that you are using with one that has a TAB key. That's the great thing about Android!
  22. Use the Swype keyboard (which you should be using anyway and hold the space key. Voila, TAB! I'm sure many other keyboards have a tab character, maybe even the default one does, try holding space.
  23. I use Evernote exactly like this - constantly capturing everything I might need to remember again. I basically use it as a replacement for my memory (which has always been pretty terrible). Whatever I'm doing, wherever I am, if I think I'll ever want to refer to this thing again no matter how trivial I'll put it in Evernote. If I'm reading a magazine or a book and I like an article or a quote I'll take a photo on my phone and it goes straight in Evernote. If I'm driving and I think of an idea I want to remember I'll make a voice note and transcribe it later. If I'm browsing the web and like a page or a photo I clip it straight in. If I'm making a phone call to my internet provider about some issue I'll take notes in Evernote as I'm doing it. I must make dozens of notes every day, then I tag them appropriately and put them in a big Archive notebook. The amount of times this has saved my ass, or I've been able to pull up something in conversation that I can't quite remember is incredible. Case in point - the other day I needed to know when I closed a particular bank account, so I searched in Evernote and found the note from a year and half ago when I called the bank, spoke to "Veena" and closed the account. No way you could do that just from memory. I use Evernote for pretty much everything. It's awesome, I love it.
