  1. This bug was first noted in 6.9.453991 (posted about it here) but it still hasn't been fixed as of today's update - 6.9.2 (454158).  Is someone going to look at this bug??

    I am reposting the details below for convenience:

    I found a problem with this new keyboard shortcut system!  If you try to clear them in Preferences by pressing the "X" next to each action, it actually sets the shortcut to the letter "A" with no modifiers.

    This causes a problem since now whenever the "a" key is pressed, it triggers the functions (create new note, etc).  Luckily I had another Mac that I hadn't tinkered with yet and was able to dig into the .plist to find the correct setting to mean "disable shortcut" and I ran these commands with Terminal:

    defaults write com.evernote.evernote "ShortcutRecorder fullscreenshot" -dict keyCode -1 modifierFlags 0 modifiers 0
    defaults write com.evernote.evernote "ShortcutRecorder newnote" -dict keyCode -1 modifierFlags 0 modifiers 0
    defaults write com.evernote.evernote "ShortcutRecorder newnotewindow" -dict keyCode -1 modifierFlags 0 modifiers 0
    defaults write com.evernote.evernote "ShortcutRecorder pasteboard" -dict keyCode -1 modifierFlags 0 modifiers 0
    defaults write com.evernote.evernote "ShortcutRecorder screenshot" -dict keyCode -1 modifierFlags 0 modifiers 0
    defaults write com.evernote.evernote "ShortcutRecorder search" -dict keyCode -1 modifierFlags 0 modifiers 0

    After running those, here's how the shortcut window looks:

    The only cosmetic problem with this is that there is a subtle hint text now in the QuickNote window that displays a null character. This entire line should really be hidden if the shortcut is disabled:

    Please fix this! (I am running v6.9.2-454158-Direct btw)

    (sorry for the huge screenshots, that's how the forum displays them from my retina screengrabs...)

  3. One of our employees recorded something and attached it to a note in EN.  I can play back the audio fine from my iPhone and my Mac but on the Windows client it's the same situation as the OP. I get this in my log: 

     

    18:48:55 [3380] Could not start audio playback: cannot play file exception, file: C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Temp\enaudio\recording.m4a

     

    I can right click on the attachment from EN and do a "Save As" and then double click the file from the desktop. It plays just fine in Windows Media Player. No extra codecs needed beyond whatever I had from the default set that comes with Windows and whatever extra ones I got by installing iTunes.

     

    Is there a fix for this?


  4. In recent versions (anything >5.2.x) the default behavior on the Windows EN client when you right-click a note and choose "Copy Note Link" has changed. You used to get an "evernote:///" URL which as long as EN was properly installed and registered its protocol handler, would automatically open such links within the EN application. The new version instead gives you "Web" URLs (https://www.evernote.com/.....) which while they appear to work the same when clicked from the Windows client, on the MAC client they will cause Safari to open instead which really bugged me.

     

    So I wrote a small utility to auto-convert these Evernote Web URLs to the "old" evernote:/// format (in case it's useful to anyone). It sits quietly in your tray and only performs this one single function - automatically. You can grab it below:

     

    1. download it (for Windows): ENConvertURL

    2. unzip the .exe file anywhere you like

    3. double click to run it - a settings file will be created in whatever folder you ran the app from.

    4. now, whenever you use Right Click > Copy Note URL it will automatically convert the link into a local evernote:/// format one.

    5. by default, you'll hear a short 'beep' to confirm that the script is working (you can disable that via the tray menu if it bothers you)

    6. if you'd like it to run automatically whenever you log in, place a shortcut to it in your Startup folder (Start > Run > type "shell:startup" and hit enter)

     

    Enjoy  :) if you have any problems with it please post them.

     

    Update: for those who don't trust running random .exe's from the web (you shouldn't!) I have made the source code (written in AHK) available for download.

  5. Yeah, "only" have to remember to hold that key down ... I just spent an hour digging through an .ENEX export of my entire database looking for note links in the bad format so I could fix them. So for me this is a useful "set it and forget it" tool to have running. But of course if you prefer the CTRL key that's your prerogative.


  6. I share a couple of notebooks with a small team of 3. We use these as a kind of knowledge base. It works pretty well.

     

    One problem scenario however, is that all of us have "read/write" access to these notebooks. I put some quite important info in there sometimes and in my testing, they are able to (accidentally?) delete a note and it does not wind up in my trash. It is simply purged from EN completely. Is this the way sharing is intended to work? I would much prefer if notes deleted from a shared notebook (by any user) wound up in the "Trash" folder. Any comments?
