  1. dear evernote plz adhere to some standards with your mac-version of evernote: pressing/releasing the Option (or Alt) ⌥ key should dynamically reveal/hide the optional menu items — this way the user can see in plain sight what changes (which menu options) ... why would anybody have to press (& keep holding pressed) the Option (or Alt) ⌥ key before opening a menu? stup*d https://developer.apple.com/design/human-interface-guidelines/macos/menus/menu-bar-menus/ thanx
  2. i second WillyB & jaswinder-s "open note in new tab" (via contextmenu or menu->note) should do what it says: open a new tab and show only the note within this tab (without any nonse on the left like "all notes", "notebooks", "shared with me", "tags", "work chat"; via menu->view) — otherwise tabs get completely useless as the tabs title does not reflect the node it currently shows you can think of this as "open note in new window" (which actually opens a new window and only shows the note within, without any nonsense on the left) and then moving thios window into another as a tab --> a behaviour any and every web browser i know of offers plz evernote get your sh*t together, thanx
  3. Steve Lytle and ColD seem to be right: Apps from the App Store are sandboxed (they need to be) As Graham Miln explained in 2014: "This means such an application has been code signed with a set of entitlements. These entitlements are being enforced by macOS. Apple's developer documentation on sandboxing provides more detail." You can view Evernotes' sandbox entitlements using the following Terminal.app command: codesign --display --entitlements - /Applications/Evernote.app The sandbox limitation means that you can't open an arbitrary file on the file system from Evernote, without explicitly giving Evernote the permission first (eg by dragging the file into the app or by attaching a file). This permission seems to get forgotten once you have quitted the sandboxed Evernote. The non-App store version does not currently have such limitations (but maybe in the not so distant future?)

  5. for me from time to time (eg: right now) those file:/// links do brake as well and I also get those error dialogs 'The application “Evernote” does not have permission to open "XYZ.pdf"' for the records: I currently use the app-store version of evernote: Version 7.4 (457000 App Store), whereas https://evernote.com/download would give me "Evernote_RELEASE_7.4_456999.dmg" — am I right that the download version seems to be behind the app store version this time? ) i just wanted to share my way of "correctly" adding file paths in evernote: write the text you want to be linked to a local file, eg "xyz.pdf" select that text hit cmd+K for "Add Link..." (in menu—>format—>add...) enter "file://" in the corresponding dialogue ("enter web address for this link") drag & drop the local file there (this automagically adds the local path starting with "/Users/" after the "file://" you just entered) hit OK to close the dialogue voila, now the text "xyz.pdf" got linked to the local file xyz.pdf somewhere on your machine instead of 5. you could also drop the (once so-called) proxy icon of the file (opened) file — see "Seven ways to save time and effort with proxy icons" (AppleWorld.Today, May 25, 2016) and "Find The Directory Path Of Documents (Or Rename Them) With Proxy Icons [OS X Tips] " (CultOfMac, September 27, 2013) all this does not prevent one from getting that stupid 'The application “Evernote” does not have permission to open "XYZ.pdf"' error from time to time
  6. The process for adding a file hyperlink is identical to adding a web page hyperlink. In both cases you have to either type or paste or drag-drop the actual link from somewhere (the source). So, sorry, but I don't see anything different, complicated, or confusing about this. i was talking about the similarities of (adding) a link to a local file and (adding) a link to a local email message (that is: stuff that does not have an easily accessible "address" and which therefor might be easier to "address" by browsing/navigating to it and then selecting it, eg by drag & drop) -- and not (adding) a link to a web page aka "web page hyperlink" (which in contrast & by its very self does have an address, which is very easy for the user to access)
  7. i would slighty modify JMichaels suggestion: and in 4. drag & drop the file or folder into the appearing (hyper)link-sheet / dialog (at least on Mac OS) (instead of pasting the file path, which previously somehow got copied) i second thehowlerrs recommendation of adding a "browse" option (which again would be capable of receiving a drag as well, at least on Mac OS) in the (hyper)link-sheet / dialog this would also greatly simplify linking to an email-message (instead of embedding a copy of the email-message) Why is what so complicated? JMichael gave a four-line guide higher up this thread which includes embedding a hyperlink behind any text of your choice. If you explain what you're interested in doing maybe we can be more specific. and yes: the 4 (or 5)-line guide given by JMichael should — in my humble opinion — only be a temporary workaround, not a permanent solution users are not too good at remembering completely different workflows for apparently similiar tasks (line linking to a local file vs to a local email message etc)
  8. just wanted to point to michael carusos applescript to convert journler entries to evernote notes: »Journler to Evernote Export« http://michaelcaruso.net/journler-to-evernote/ it does preserve creation/modification date, tags, categories and folders (which both become tags) etc did work great for my 2000+ journler entries, although some things did not work: [*:2yknxhsz]wikilinks between journler entries — they obviously did not get updated but remained journler links journler://entry/xyz [*:2yknxhsz]aliases/links to directories: "encountered an error: 20. attachment parameter is a directory" [*:2yknxhsz]"encountered an error: -1700. evernote got an error: can't make missing value into type file" [*:2yknxhsz]malformed (well, at least for evernote) links: "encountered an error: -10000. evernote got an error: appleevent handler failed" — journler entries with such links did not get imported et all [*:2yknxhsz]eg http://www.falter.at/web/wwei/detail.ph ... 26teil%3D1)# [*:2yknxhsz]eg http://www.amazon.de/s/ref=nb_ss_ce/028 ... .y=0&Go=Go [*:2yknxhsz]eg http://www.duden-suche.de/suche/treffer ...
