  1. Always amazing when you learn something new about something you've been using for 20+ years. I am a huge fan of keyboard shortcuts but somehow never new about the WIN-1 through 8!! Very cool and I'll definitely be making use of that, thanks!! I don't think that will work for me in this case since I nearly always have some notes open and it appears that the WIN-3 shortcut just opens whatever's at the top of the list which (annoyingly) is not necessarily the main application window. That actually always feels like a mistake to me -- If I click on the Evernote tile on my windows taskbar (forgive me, right now I have a lot of notes open) this is what it looks like: I've never understood why the main application isn't at the top of the list, but in this case it makes the WIN - # shortcut unpredictable unless I have all my notes closed (not something I'm likely to achieve any time soon. :-)
  2. Thanks for everyone's help above. I've improved my AHK approach at least with the following: If (A_Args[1] = "evernote_intitle") gosub, evernote_intitle evernote_intitle: +F6:: IfWinExist All Notebooks - xxxx@xxx.com - Evernote WinActivate Send, {F6 down} sleep, 50 Send, {F6 up} sleep, 200 Send intitle: return and now a batch file with the following line: "C:\Program Files\AutoHotkey\AutoHotkeyU64.exe" "D:\path_to_ahk\AutoHotkey.ahk" evernote_intitle will launch my desired intitle search as reliably as I'm currently able to do. Would still be interested in passing the search parameters to EN but without that search grammar page I suspect I won't get much further.
  3. I did review that but have not found the answer. Part of the problem may be that a pretty critical page appears to be defunct: The query string is formatted according to the search grammar. To The link above is to a reference on the dev site to search grammar. That link (to search grammar) doesn't appear to work, it is the following URL: https://dev.evernote.com/doc/cloud/chapters/search_grammar.php and returns an error for me from multiple browsers and machines.
  4. I found the a_args parameter in another hotkey section of my main AHK script (I recalled using this once before) so I'll play around with that. @PinkElephant I've been through the dev site but couldn't locate what I'm looking for, most likely user error on my part, alas.
  5. That's how I'm currently doing it, with the following script in AHK: +F6:: IfWinExist All Notebooks - xxxxx@xxxxxx.com - Evernote WinActivate Send, {F6 down} sleep, 50 Send, {F6 up} sleep, 200 Send intitle: return So while F6 is the normal global search SHIFT-F6 does my special INTITLE: search For the most part this works well but I thought if I could trigger it from a batch I avoid the always-present risk that AHK inputs the keystrokes into the wrong window due to some extraneous lag. Slightly off topic, but if you're an AHK user, do you know if there's a way to send a hotkey to AHK from the command line? That is, using my script above is there a way to have a batch file do what SHIFT-F6 normally does? Thanks for the help!
  6. I'm using Windows version I have a keyboard shortcut to launch a new note using this command that I use all the time: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Evernote\Evernote\Evernote.exe" /NewNote I've been trying to come up with a way of using a similar keyboard shortcut but in this case to launch a partially pre-filled search. Specifically I'm often searching intitle: and I'd like to press a button that launches evernote with the string intitle: already in the search field. Currently I do this with autohotkey but it would be smoother and less error prone if I could send it via command line. Is that possible? I've tried things like: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Evernote\Evernote\Evernote.exe" /q "intitle:1" and "C:\Program Files (x86)\Evernote\Evernote\Evernote.exe" shownotes /q "intitle:1" with and without the "1" (figuring I could backspace over it) but none of those execute the search. Thanks for any leads!
  7. Just to clarify, you're only talking about the MacOS client, correct? I've pasted it into multiple programs in Windows (Word, Notepad, etc) and it pastes fine, it's only Evernote Windows that won't take it.
  8. @gazumped Thanks for the reply. It's not that I want the ability to paste random characters into notes :-) but rather that this character was included in a Facebook comment that I was attempting to save into a note. Here's a screenshot of where it occurred, after the characters "younger." I can select up to the period and copy/paste fine. I can select starting at https and copy/paste fine. But if my selection spans that line, I can copy but not paste into Evernote. I can paste into Notepad, or Word, but then if I copy/paste it still won't make it into Evernote. I mentioned it here because as you can imagine if the character (which is not visible) occurred throughout a thread it would be nearly impossible to determine why it was not copying/pasting into Evernote. I was able to find it because there was only one but if it had occurred frequently I suspect that would be quite a mystery to a user. To @PinkElephant the characters won't paste into a code block either.
  9. I'd been experiencing a strange problem -- I was trying to copy a large block of simple text from notepad into Evernote (original source was a series of comments online). For some reason it just wouldn't paste. Tried a new note, closing/reopening Evernote, no luck. The overall size of the text was a few hundred kilobytes so it wasn't a size limit issue. I started copying it in smaller segments and eventually narrowed it down to a single character that was stopping it. Not even a visible character. I copied the text into pastebin in a note here: https://pastebin.com/yEXSYcNQ the line in that paste is this: This will not paste into Evernote and if you view it in Pastebin and cursor across it you'll notice that your cursor makes two moves between "paste" and "into". There's some kind of unicode character or break or something in there that cannot be pasted into Evernote. Interestingly the string can *exist* in Notepad but I can't *save* it in Notepad or I get a message about unicode characters in TXT files, so that's why I put it in Pastebin. Is this a known issue? I'm using (309091) Public (CE Build ce-62.6.10954)
