  1. JMichaelTX's post in A text expander that can add a table in Evernote? was marked as the answer   
    Yep, you're right.  Keyboard Maestro  can retain the table format using its saved Named Clipboards.  So you just copy the table in Evernote and paste it into a KM Named Clipboard.  Then paste from the Named clipboard when you fire a KM trigger.  Works great.
  2. JMichaelTX's post in Telephone hyperlinks was marked as the answer   
    You don't need to do anything special other than to just format the  phone number in one of the standard styles:
    (123) 123-1234 123-123-1234 etc The iPhone iOS has a built-in feature that will automatically make a phone call link out of any number it recognizes as a phone number.
  3. JMichaelTX's post in Where do I locate my total note count? was marked as the answer   
    You can view your total note count in the Left Sidebar, if you turn on "Show note count" in the EN Mac Preferences.
    If you mouse-over the "Notes" block/label that is showing the count, it will also display how many are yours, and how many are from shared notebooks:

  4. JMichaelTX's post in Keyboard shortcut to increase/decrease font size? was marked as the answer   
    Evernote identifies the shortcut keys without "Shift" because on some keyboards it is NOT necessary to press "Shift" to get either ">" or "<"
  5. JMichaelTX's post in Remove line break suggestion was marked as the answer   
    Great suggestion.  I can see that would would be very helpful if you copy from PDFs often.
    What platform are you using?  If you are using a Mac, this could be easily automated using AppleScript or Keyboard Maestro .
    Otherwise, the site you referenced is probably the best solution at this time.
  6. JMichaelTX's post in Note content disappeared was marked as the answer   
    You can try these options for recovery:
    Check for your notes in the EN Cloud by using the EN Web client at Evernote.com. In EN Win, check for new local notebooks with a name something like "Conflicting Notes..." If you are a Premium account owner, or upgrade to Premium, check the "Note History"
    (click on Note, then goto menu Note > Note History) In the future, to prevent/minimize issues due to sync:
    Although sync, IMO, is one of Evernote's primary features, it still is not as solid or robust as it needs to be.  So, I never rely solely on Evernote to automatically sync.  I always do manual syncs, and I rarely have a sync issue.
    I have found the following to be helpful in preventing sync issues:
    Use multiple short Notes rather than one long Note that has many/frequent edits It is best to consistently manually sync, and sync often, especially after: Entry/Edit of an important note End of Session BEFORE you close or put your machine to sleep End of Day Start using a different device Even if you notice the Sync icon spinning on EN iOS when you switch to the app, do a manual sync anyway after it finishes spinning I have noticed that the initial sync does NOT always do a full sync. I'm not sure about Android devices, but I would do the same just to be safe.
  7. JMichaelTX's post in How do I highlight text? was marked as the answer   
    It sounds like you are using the EN Web client ("online version").  If so, I believe that EN Web does NOT have a highlight tool.
    In the EN Mac desktop version, there is a highlight tool, and you can just select text and the press CMD+CTRL+H.
  8. JMichaelTX's post in Automatic indent was marked as the answer   
    Update to EN Mac 6.3, and goto Preferences > Formating, and turn it OFF.
  9. JMichaelTX's post in Text line width not responding to window width was marked as the answer   
    If you pasted text into EN Mac from some other source, it can cause this.
    Try Simplify Formatting (CMD+SHIFT+F).  I find this often cures a lot of problems with text from other sources.
  10. JMichaelTX's post in My search bar disappeared was marked as the answer   
    Go to menu View > Show Toolbar
  11. JMichaelTX's post in Can I merge two accounts? was marked as the answer   
    Here's one way to merge accounts:
    Using EN Win or EN Mac:
    Sign in to the account you want to quit using Share all Notebooks with the account (email) you want to keep If you have any important or irreplaceable Notes in this account, it is best to backup these Notes by exporting to ENEX files. Export each NB to a separate ENEX file. This is just in case something goes wrong in the merge process. For more info, see this EN Knowledgebase article:
    How to back up (export) and restore (import) notes and notebooks
    Sign into the account you want to keep Join the Notebooks shared from the other account If desired, create new NBs for each NB in the other account.
    (best to name these like this:  <Joined NB Name>_NEW) For each NB from the other account that you have now joined:
    (Caution!  This could cause you to exceed your monthly upload allowance[1]) Set a NB filter for that NB Select all notes in that NB Click on the "Move to Notebook" button in the Multi-Note panel Select the "NEW" NB in your current account This will cause all of the selected Notes to be moved to the selected NB. As this is working, you will see the Notes in the List disappear as they are moved. Do a manual sync.  Don't skip this step. Do a manual sync That should do it!
    You may want to verify that all of your Notes have been moved by viewing them using the EN Web client at Evernote.com in each account.

    [1]  Upload Allowance Considerations:
    If you have a Free or Plus account, this process could easily cause you to exceed your monthly upload allowance, depending on the size of your Notes in the account you want to quit using. Sign in online to the account you want to keep, and Check your current upload amount on your ‘Account Summary' page. To estimate the size of the account you want to quit using, sign in to that account in EN WinThere is nowhere I know of that EN will show you the total size of your account. So you will have to estimate it using the List view. ​In the List View, show (or add) the "Size" column Click on the "Size" column until it sorts in descending order You may be able to select all Notes, and copy/paste into Excel, where you can get a total Otherwise, scan the list to estimate a total. If this total exceeds your remaining upload allowance in the account you want to keep, you will need to spread out the move of Notes from one account to the other over multiple months.
    OR Just upgrade to Premium for one month ($5), which gives you a 10GB upload allowance.
  12. JMichaelTX's post in Collapse PDF's inserted into notes was marked as the answer   
    For existing Notes that show the PDF inline, you will need to open each Note and right-click on the PDF header/icon, and select "Show as attachment".
  13. JMichaelTX's post in Set default preference to "View as Attachment" was marked as the answer   
    You can change the default attachment viewing mode in EN Mac Preferences, and EN Win Options.
  14. JMichaelTX's post in Set default preference to "View as Attachment" was marked as the answer   
    You can change the default attachment viewing mode in EN Mac Preferences, and EN Win Options.
  15. JMichaelTX's post in Date-Tag a Note or Change the Date of a Note? was marked as the answer   
    Sure, just change the Creation Date, which can be accessed by the Info screen
    (Mac:  CMD-SHIFT-I   Win: F8).  You can also click on the "i" button in the Note toolbar.
    I do this all the time, and even have an AppleScript to automate it for EN Mac.
  16. JMichaelTX's post in How to change default font-size on the Mac app was marked as the answer   
    You can change the default font for your Notes by going to Evernote > Preferences > Formatting.
  17. JMichaelTX's post in Deleting Notebooks? was marked as the answer   
    I can't be for sure, but your image looks like it is from EN Mac.
    If so, then just right-click on a Notebook, and select "Delete..."
    BUT, be sure that you have resolved the conflicting notes issue, and have the proper Note in a NB that is NOT one of the "Conflicting Changes ..." notebooks BEFORE you delete anything.  Once you delete these notebooks, there may be no recovery for the Notes within.
  18. JMichaelTX's post in Exclude a notebook from search was marked as the answer   
    You can't exclude NB from a Search, but you can exclude Tags.  So, as a work-around, you could assign a Tag to all Notes in the NB you want to exclude.  The Tag Name could even be the same as the NB Name.
    Let's say the NB name is "Personal".  So you create a Tag named "Personal", and assign to all Notes in the Personal NB.
    Then you could so a Search like this:  "-tag:Personal" and whatever other Search terms you'd like.
