  1. I don't recall which 'version' of Evernote Web I was using, but the one I like is mostly white with green buttons on the side (I think it's called "Classic") — but I enjoy using it because it syncs up with my Google Calendar. It did not show up in the beta version, nor in the beta editor views.

    Is this coming back to the new editor anytime soon?

    Is it possible to switch the default font for notes on the Mac to be San Francisco (the "default" OS font)? Right now, I have it set to Helvetica (see screenshot attached). I can change the font, but don't see San Francisco from the font selection menu. Am I missing something?


    Pro tip: After you install it on your Mac, add the San Francisco fonts to the "Web" group in Font Book. You'll be able to have it as an option inside the note body. This is how I added Caecilia and Gotham to my notes:

    Actually I don't think 7.10 uses "enspot" files anymore. On the 2 systems I've installed 7.10 beta on, I deleted them completely and rebuilt both the Full Text and Spotlight metadata indexes, and spotlight search is PARTIALLY working with no trace of any .enspot files on my disk anywhere. When I say PARTIALLY working, I mean, that note content is not searchable via Spotlight, but TITLES are. I assume this is a bug?

    I agree, it would be nice if Alfred could see these - not sure how to make that happen either. Alfred problem? Seems like this article references a ~/Library/CoreData/com.evernote.Evernote folder, which no longer exists...

    Update: Ok it seems like what used to be the "CoreData" folder is now called CoreNote and lives at ~/Library/Group Containers/Q79WDW8YH9.com.evernote.Evernote/CoreNote/

    Below that, in /accounts/www.evernote.com/<account-id>/content, you will find a folder with a {guid} for each note in your database. Opening those up, there are "content.enml" "quickLook.png" and "snippet.txt" as well as other file attachments etc. The problem is, when I search in Spotlight, what shows up is the "content.enml" file with the preview showing RAW ENML instead of the snippet that it used to show. See below:


    Wow! That is thorough!

    I'm glad the Spotlight search has been fixed, it has affected my workflow immensely, however, it's not working with Alfred sadly.

    Does anyone have the Spotlight search working through Alfred App? I've added all the usual paths to the search scope but with no luck. 

    Thanks a lot.


    I can't, either. It seems the metadata now has a .enspot extension — I wonder if Alfred can't "see" these files yet?

    Is anyone else having really serious memory leak problems with Evernote on mac? I'm using Evernote 7.9 (latest) on macOS 10.14.3 and every time Evernote is opened it starts using more and more memory. About 2-3 minutes after opening it's up to 10 gigabytes and it just keeps growing until I get a "run out of application memory" error and have to force quit it. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    I wonder if the RAM is being used to index the notes?

  6. Granted, I am on a Mac, but the process should be the same for Windows:

    1. Select all of the notes you wish to export, whether in the same Notebook, or in the All Notes area.
    2. From the "File" menu, choose “Export Notes…”

    As far as I know, there is no way to export an entire notebook as a folder.

    You should be posting in an "Information Structure" discussion.  
    The purpose of this discussion is for feedback on a Evernote/Mac release

    >>gave up on tags and started to use notebooks 

    It's just a name; I am able to work with the feature regardless of the name (folder/notebook/tag)

    As to your need for structure, why is this not a solution?


    Your tags need better names 😉

    I've been using Evernote Free for several years. I would like to turn on two-step verification, but it does not seem to work if I don't use a smartphone. I have neither iOS, Android nor Blackberry devices. I use only a single MacBook Pro to connect to the Internet. How can I increase the security of my Evernotes?

    You can link your two-factor auth to an application like Google Authenticator or (my recommendation), 1Password. Strong passwords, like what @DTLow suggested, are always a good idea.

  9. What a UI mess Evernote has in macOS 10.13 High Sierra. We have the sidebar, which uses macOS Vibrancy to make it slightly translucent. Then we have the note list, which is what I'd call a "Mavericks grey". Finally, we have the note and it's new Mojave dark background… with a lighter grey header. Either have a dark mode that works in High Sierra (like Things 3), or disable it.

    So, 3 panes, and 4 different colors. Meanwhile, Bear has it's theme act together, as well as Apple Notes.

    I know it's only beta 1, but this is not what we had in mind when we asked for a Dark Mode all those years ago.

    I wiped my MacBook Pro for the purpose of putting a Windows partition using Bootcamp on it. About half of my Notes are local, and I found where they were stored on my Mac. So, thinking I was doing all I needed to do, I backed up those Evernote folders (com.evernote.Evernote, etc.) to an external hard drive. My plan was then to simply move those folders to where local Evernote folders are stored on Windows. Unfortunately, I wasn't aware that folders that can be opened on Windows can't necessarily be opened on Mac (even Excel folders, but that's another problem for another day). I looked up, and I was apparently supposed to export those notes ahead of time. 

    I still have the folders for the local notes with them having a card.png, content.enml, quickLook.png, and snippet.txt. I can't open up the content.enml files in Evernote, but I can in TextEdit. It looks like HTML. 

    My question: is there a way to modify these content.enml files so that they actually open up in Evernote? Or maybe a way to automatically modify them from enml to Word files? 

    as far as I know, no.
