    Chrome Now Available: Clipper 7.4 for Chrome

    Thanks for the update. It has been a long an rocky road since you guys took us for ride with Ver 7.0. I just updated to Ver 7.4 today, and the web clipping seems to be fine so far, but I do have these issues with the keyboard shortcuts: The Start Web Clipper does NOT work reliably. I can't find a way to remove a specific shortcut completely. ESC does not work as a Close Web Clipper (cancel).
  2. You are correct that EN iOS (and I think EN Android) do NOT support hierarchical tags -- they show the tag list as one flat list. This is one of the many reasons I don't use any of my iOS devices for any major Evernote work. It's all done on the Mac. In EN Win, you have the option of doing a search with a Parent tag that includes notes with any of its child tags. But we do not have that in EN Mac. It has been a feature in EN Win for about a year now, I think. So, EN nested tags do NOT work like OS nested folders, which is what most of us would expect IF we had EN nested Notebooks. So, you end up either moving to a different Notes app/system, or making Evernote work as best you can. You choice. BTW, you do not need to repeat your posts. You can quote as many other posts as you like, and then just provide one reply. And when you do quote another post, please just select the key part of that post you want to reply to. It will provide you with a "Quote Selection" popup. Thanks.

    [Request] Make EN Mac Support macOS Mojave Dark Mode

    Can anyone post a screenshot of what Evernote looks like under Mojave?

    Evernote, is it for me?

    In a word: No. As @EdH as already told you, Evernote is NOT HIPAA compliant. But even if it were, it would be a poor choice, for these reasons: Evernote does not have: the ability to send out notifications to others at some future date. the proper structure. All Notes are equal. There are no contact/patient "records" to which you can attach activity and info records. There are no parent-child records. Yes, they can be linked with tags, but it is a lot of work. a good change tracking system. If a change is made to a Note, you have no idea who made it. As a physician, I would imagine that you have access to apps dedicated to, or focused on, your type of practice. Yes, you will have to pay for these apps, but, as they say, "you get what you pay for". There are also a number of professional CRM and contact management systems, that you could probably adapt to your use. I would also imagine that you have a professional association that you could ask for this type of app. There are some who will tell you that you could make Evernote work (aside from the HIPAA issue). And, to a degree, that is true. But you, and your staff, would be spending a lot of time (not required for pro apps) to keep your data organized in Evernote. Good luck, and let us know how it goes.

    Urgent. Notice not found with searching bar

    If all of your notes are still on the iMacs, and on EN Web, then you might try a clean reinstall. See How to Completely Remove and Reinstall EN Mac

    Slow retrieval of a new scan

    I'm running 20K+ Notes on Evernote 6.11.1 (455059) on macOS 10.12.6 on a 2015 iMac-27, and EN runs fast for the most part. However, sometimes after adding a large Note or PDF, I notice there can be a slowdown, especially while EN is syncing. I'm just guessing, but one possibility is that EN is updating its indexes. I haven't seen any EN Mac versions since 6.11.1 that I trust -- all have had serious bugs/issues, IMO. High Sierra is another possible culprit -- I still see negative reports about it, so I'm staying away. Sorry I can't be of more help. Good luck, and let us know how it goes.

    Using AppleScript to Process Tags in EN Mac

    OK, that script only returns the immediate child tags of the target parent tag. I now have a proof-of-concept script working that will return all child tags, and descendent tags, down to the lowest level starting with the top-level parent tag. It is running pretty fast, but I want to further optimize before I publish. Turning this into a search is very easy, and the test searches have been very fast. Stay tuned for further developments!
  8. Thanks for the reply. I started a new thread: Using AppleScript to Process Tags in EN Mac
  9. Using AppleScript to Process Tags in EN Mac Continuing the discussion from: @DTLow, I started with your idea and one-line script, and did some testing to determine how to best get all child tags of a parent tag. Here's what I found: Your simple script worked, but it took ~10 sec to run with my 1500+ tags. So, after some experimentation, I came up with this approach, which takes on ~0.24 sec: AppleScript to Get List of Child Tags property ptyScriptName : "Get List of Child Tags for a Parent Tag" property ptyScriptVer : "2.0" property ptyScriptDate : "2018-07-11" property ptyScriptAuthor : "JMichaelTX" tell application "Evernote" ### This Takes about 10 sec for 1500 Tags ### (* set parentTag to tag ".NB.IT" set childTagList to name of every tag whose parent is equal to parentTag *) ### This Takes about 0.24 sec ### set parTagName to ".NB.IT" set tagNameList to name of every tag set parNameList to name of parent of every tag set childTagList to {} repeat with iTag from 1 to (count of tagNameList) set tagName to item iTag of tagNameList set parName to item iTag of parNameList if (parName = parTagName) then set end of childTagList to tagName end if end repeat end tell return childTagList -->{"SOFTWARE", "IT_List", "Electronics", "IT"} Thanks for sharing your complete script to get the list, and to do a recursive process to get all lower child tags. I'll take a look at that and see if it also can be optimized. So that would give us a list of Notes that were assigned any of the child tags. Unfortunately it would not allow any other Search criteria (like dates, inTitle, other tags), which the EN Win search will allow.
  10. @DTLow, sorry to refer to an old post, but how do you turn that list of tags into a search for Notes? BTW, I don't thing that is equivalent to the EN Win feature of: You tag list would only be the immediate child tags of the specified parent tag, and would NOT include any child tags of the first level child tags. But maybe I'm missing something. Perhaps if you could share your complete script it would be clear.

    Evernote for Mac 7.3 Beta 2

    Thanks, Chantal. I love that long list of bug fixes. 👍

    Export as RTF

    Why is HTML "ridiculous"? HTML is: Obviously, can be easily viewed in any web browser Used by more apps than RTF Easy to search and modify Imports into every word processor I know of Many information managers use HTML. BTW, you don't state what OS you're using, but in the macOS, you can use AppleScript to export Notes (or parts thereof) from Evernote Mac and import into most any other app.

    [Request] Make EN Mac Support macOS Mojave Dark Mode

    Thanks for the reply. I'm aware of the Mojave schedule. I just wanted to get it on your request list early. 😉
  14. No idea without seeing the source code (ENEX) of the Note, but really, only Evernote will be able to properly diagnose. So don't bother posting here. You should export the Note to ENEX on your Mac, and submit a Support Case, and attach a zip of the ENEX file. There is a link in my signature below to submit a case.
  15. ATTN: @Evernote: ( @Chantal Leonard, @Johnathan Hebert, @Jason Miller ) : Please ensure that when you update EN Mac to be compatible with macOS Mojave, that you support the great new Dark Mode. This is truly a great advance of the Mac UI, making it much easier on the eyes to view the Mac screen, not just during the night, but at all hours. A dark screen is much less harmful. Thanks.
