  1. I also highly doubt that Evernote will ever significantly add to scripting EN Win, since they have not even kept EN Mac AppleScript up-to-date as they have added new features, and changed existing one. If Evernote Corp wanted to really take Evernote app to the next level, then they would implement their own scripting engine, using something like MS VBA, and enable it to run in the cloud so it would work on phones/tablets as well as desktops. I guess it depends on whether or not you enjoy programming. Scripting to enable you to change and automate the existing behavior in ways that you would probably never get the app devs to do, certainly not on the time scale you'd like. I have highly automated and enhanced EN Mac using AppleScript, not only within the app, but with other apps. In essence, I've been able to automate entire workflows that cross over multiple apps, saving me hours a day, and eliminating mistakes likely made during manual steps.
  2. Of course, you can backup your Registry so you can restore if need be, but if you're really uncomfortable with making these changes, then probably it is best not to do so. Once you install Evernote on your new PC, you can quickly tell if any of the user settings are maintained in the DB. Frankly, I'd be very surprised if they were since this is exactly the type of thing the Registry is designed for. OTOH, this is how we learn -- stepping out of our comfort zone to try new things. Of course you always need to first backup, and carefully research and prepare for making new changes.
  3. Well, that's not the answer we wanted to hear, but I really appreciate you being candid and letting us know up front.
  4. I don't think anyone has answered this question. I'm currently a Mac user, but in my Windows days all (or most) of an app's settings were stored in the Windows Registry. It should be possible to find and export the Registry settings for Evernote, and then import them in your new PC. Sorry, I no longer have the details of how to do this, but I would expect one of the Windows gurus to come along and provide this info. Good luck, and let us know how it goes.
  5. @EhsanE, as you probably know, Evernote will ASSIGN the tags in the email subject, but not create them. Changing that to CREATING tags is a double-edge sword: If you make a typo or misspell a tag, then it gets created in error. Having said that, it could be useful. Perhaps Evernote could all double # to indicate create the tag if it does not exist. Of course, what would really be great is some type of add-in or helper for our email clients that allow us to select existing Tags/NBs, and create one if need be, much like happens on the Note Tag Assign block.
  6. I have made extensive use of tag hierarchies in my concept of pseudo Notebooks: Here is a screen shot of my actual tag list in Evernote Mac. Clicking on one of the tags will show all Notes with that tag. Unfortunately, EN Mac does not have the same feature as EN Win to show all Notes that have either the Parent tag or any of its Child tags. Does this answer your question?
  7. Do you really believe that? If everyone followed that advice, then there would never be any progress -- we'd all still be living in caves. LOL All real breakthroughs have come because one or more people were not willing to settle for status quo.
  8. Yep, it is truly amazing that after 10+ YEARS, 1,267 posts, and 302 votes, that Evernote has still declined to provide this feature. It is also clear that this feature appeals to a wide variety of users with wide variety of use cases as evidenced by the many posts. While you have had many different people asking for this feature, it is curious that the same small group (~5) feel compelled to keep repeating the same old reasons why users should just accept Evernote as it is.
  9. I agree. Agreed. I'd like to take it step further, and make it very easy to use/navigate this "Add Search option" via keyboard: (this is just an example; not perfect; to illustrate the idea.) The user presses ⌘⌥F, or cicks in the Search box, to activate Search The Search dropdown shows, but with the "Add Search Option" at the top. The "Add Search Option" can be activated by mouse click, or by pressing the ⌃+ keystroke When the "Add Search Option" menu is shown, then the user should be able to navigate/select the option of interest by typing the first few characters of the menu item This actually already works like this Once the user has selected the Search Option (like "Tag", or "Title"), the focus should auto move to the menu popup with further choices, so that the user could select the choice by typing the name (like the name of the tag) At this point if the user presses RETURN, then he/she is done and the option is added to the Search box But if then the user could press ⌃+ to add another option, or press RETURN again to run the search
  10. Did you try this from above: If you completely remove the current version, then you will NOT get the error you did.
  11. This can't be over emphasized. Evernote has made some big promises in the past that they really didn't keep. Let's hope Mr. Small can turn this around as well.
  12. I'm not sure I understand the behavior you are seeing, but if you just QUIT (⌘Q) Evernote Mac, then when you launch it the next time it does NOT ask you to sign in. Running Evernote 6.11.1 (455059) on macOS 10.12.6.
  13. Sorry, @Nick L., I don't get why you would bother with even a Beta release that doesn't do much, and no details of the changes are provided. How can anyone test without knowing the changes??? And why would they bother, given all the issues that remain? Surely it cost time and effort to put out every release. Is this really a good use of Evernote resources?
  14. @pleasemakeitwork: There are many more helpful forum members than just the few involved in this thread. Good luck, and please feel free to post any other questions/issues you may have.
  15. Two places: In the Evernote Mac app, goto Evernote > About Evernote If it includes "Direct", then it was a direct download from the Evernote web site Open the Mac App Store and click on updates. If you don't see "Evernote", then you did not get it from the App Store.
