  1. Which do you want: (1) Web page clipping; or (2) web page archive (ala Safari)? You can activate the EN Web Clipper via a shortcut (set in the Clipper Options), or by clicking on the EN Clipper button in the toolbar.
  2. @Nick L. or any Users of Ver 7.14, can you please confirm, or refute, that in Ver 7.14 you can set a hyperlink (Format > Link > Add) using a URL to these: file URL: file:///some.path/someFileName.ext email: mailto:someName@someDomain Thanks. @Nick L., while I'm here, could I please ask you to reinforce, to your Dev Team, our request to allow Non-http url schemes in notes and links as valid link URLs. ALL USERS: If you agree with this request, please go to Non-http url schemes in notes and links and cast your vote for it. Thanks. I think, at least I hope, that this would be a simple change, just a matter of changing the validation of what is allowed in the Add Link dialog.
  3. Thanks for sharing that. So I guess it was NOT broken with the Ver 7.14 release. That's good -- I'll update now.
  4. Looks like you may have introduced a bug:
  5. @SMcCandlish, OK, it just tested this running Evernote 7.13 (458080) on macOS 10.14.6 (Mojave), and it worked: file:///Users/Shared/Dropbox/Mac%20Only/Scan%20Inbox/ExamplePDF.pdf mailto:SomeUser@SomeDomain.com So this must be a change between EN Mac 7.13 and 7.14. Too bad. I was just about to update to Ver 7.14, but I'll hold off for now.
  6. Is this new with Ver 7.14, or has it been that way for a while? Well, these are referred to a "URL schemes", which can be used to open any app on the Mac that has properly registered the scheme. So, EN Mac should allow any registered URL scheme. Period. This, of course, includes the standard "file:///" and "mailto:" schemes. @Ian Small, I know you've got a much bigger fish you're trying to fry right now, but could you please add this change, which I think is just a dialog validation issue, to your fix list. It would be really great, a big benefit to lots of Mac users, if you could add this fix to your short term list for EN Mac updates. Thanks, and keep up the great work. Just viewed your last video about the new mobile versions, and I have to say many many thanks. That is long over due -- in fact that should have been the Evernote design philosophy from the very beginning.
  7. You might try AppDelete, which I believe initially checks all related folders/files. Years ago AppCleaner was reported as missing some files, so I started using AppDelete. It has always worked well for me, and I've never seen any reports about it missing files.
  8. To be clear, are you saying that dragging the attachment to the email also works in EN Win?
  9. It appears you are using EN Win, so this may not help you. But for those EN Mac users who are lurking about, I find that I can Do Either: Drag the attachment from an EN Note to the Outlook 365 icon in the Mac dock Drag the attachment from an EN Note to the headers section of an open compose email (OL 365). Running Evernote 7.13 (458080) on macOS 10.14.6 (Mojave).
  10. Many thanks for posting. This looks very interesting. Will check out tomorrow.
  11. Could you please upload, or provide a link to, your Alfred workflow. Looks very impressive.
  12. I agree with the need for Evernote to provide full OCR as part of the app, especially when there are free developer tools like Tesseract OCR that do an excellent job. The great Mac automation tool Keyboard Maestro now provides this OCR tool, which I use almost on a daily basis because KM makes it so easy to do so. For more info, see Keyboard Maestro 9 adds support for OCR .
  13. I think you and maybe some others completely missed my point. So let me spell it out: The notion of having Styles in any kind of text display, and/or text editor, is so old that it should automatically be provided by default, in the very first version of any decent app that supports text editing. It is a long-since well-proven UI for a text editor. Or, as you said: "Heading styles are a great idea for note taking and organizing text in a note taking program."
  14. As compared with a more professional tool like DevonThink Pro.
  15. As @DTLow suggested, try PRINT to PDF. Select all of the Notes, then File > Print. This will print each Note to a separate PDF file. Fortunately there are tools that will merge all of these PDF files into one PDF.
  16. Thanks for sharing. This is very interesting. Given that Evernote is a low-end, inexpensive, personal information manager, it seems unlikely that Evernote (the company) would add that to Evernote (the product). However, it might make a great add-on or "pro" app for those who need that level of information analysis, and or willing to pay for it. Unfortunately, Evernote has been struggling for years to produce a solid, stable, near-bug-free app that works consistently across its platforms. That's what the current CEO Ian Little is focused on now, and I really hope he succeeds soon.
  17. There is a setting in the Evernote Preferences for that:
  18. If all of your Notes were in sync'd NB, then all of them should still be in the EN Cloud, and most likely are also still on your Mac -- and some macOS or Evernote bug is preventing them from showing. Here are some troubleshooting steps. Do each step, then open EN Mac and test for your notes Make sure you are signed into Evernote with the same account as you were previously using on your Mac. If you have more than one Evernote account, and are not sure which one to use, goto Evernote.com Login to the EN Web app with each account login until you find the account you want on the Mac Restart EN Mac. Restart your Mac. Reindex your Notes in EN Mac Open EN Mac Hold down OPT key and click on Help menu Goto Troubleshooting > Recreate Full Text Search Index This could take a few hours, even a day, depending on how many Notes you have If all else fails, then do a clean reinstall using a app uninstall tool like AppDelete Before you start, backup/export all of your Local Notebooks to ENEX files (one per NB). Don't manually move EN Mac app to the trash Use the app uninstall tool to move to trash the EN Mac app and ALL related files. Restart your Mac Download the latest EN Mac version from the Evernote.com web site Install and open EN Mac It will automatically download all of your Notes from the EN Cloud. After all Notes are sync'd, then import the ENEX files (if any) from Step #1. If at any point you are not comfortable with proceeding, submit an Evernote Support Ticket, report the issue, and ask for help. Good luck, and let us know how it goes.
  19. Exactly. I have been using my own template system for years -- long before it was introduced in Evernote. I see you are using EN Win, but since you posted in the General section, there may be some Mac users reading this. Using EN Mac, AppleScript, and Keyboard Maestro , I have developed a highly automated template system, that includes the use of placeholders in the template note for things like date and time.
  20. @PinkElephant, could you please stay on-topic. It really makes a thread hard to follow with your long off-topic posts.
  21. But that is very easy to do. All you have to do is press CMD-Delete with the wrong note selected, or maybe accidentally selected with a bunch of other notes. And then, much later, after you have lots of Notes in your EN Trash Bin, you just empty the Trash because you don't have time to go through each note in the trash. Now, months, or maybe years, later you try find a Note you know you have -- but it's not there -- it's long gone. Backups are like insurance -- you hope you never need it, but you're in a world of hurt if you need it and don't have it. The only effort with a good backup system is the initial setup. After that, very little effort is needed to maintain it. So I really don't know what you are complaining about. You're already doing TM backups, which are effortless. You don't need to do anything else until you need to restore one or more notes.
  22. I think it might surprise a lot of people, including Evernote program managers, that lots of users might take advantage of a full boolean search, although they (the users) have never heard of the term "boolean". It largely depends on the UI that Evernote provides. Years ago I built a database app that had a wizard-like "query builder", which allowed even the novice user to build very complicated searches. Almost all of my users loved it, and took advantage of it. The other use case is for EN Business Accounts, where you could maybe have the Account Admin (or other user) who could build some complex saved searches that everyone in the company could easily use. This would make it easy to automate many business processes/workflows. @Shane D., perhaps you could bring this to the attention of Ian or some of your top program managers.
  23. I also like the benefit of having my data offline -- mostly on my iMac with a large SSD. But on a small SSD MacBook Air, I would like the OPTION to not download certain NBs.
  24. Have you tried this with older Notes? I just checked several notes and there was NO backup at all in the Note History. Evernote does NOT store every version of the Note. You may not be able to find the version you need. You said you were already a TM backup. No need to create ENEX files until you need them. I was just making the point of how to restore a Note from TM.
  25. The easiest way is to just forward the Mail Message to your Evernote inbox address. You can see this address at https://www.evernote.com/Settings.action. It is the "Email Notes to" field. This ensure you get the rich text formatting of the Message, as well as images and attachments.
