  1. Well, I would love to know what has been more important for the many years that Evernote has been developed. As has been pointed out endless times, this is an extremely basic feature. Actually two: Find/replace within a note. Find/replace across notes. Both are useful. Though I would prioritize them as listed. As someone outside the company I don't like to speculate unless I can point at some evidence. So in my opinion it is just as likely that they: Have much more important things to do (that aren't evident). Don't listen to their customers. Are in main
  2. Bear looks like an interesting alternative. It seems to do a much better job with thinks like nested lists which have always annoyed me in Evernote. Evernote just gets in my way when note taking or writing. But... to be fair: The actual cost is much higher than what Bear charges. If you want equivalent functionality you will need to buy iCloud storage 50GB: $0.99/month (USD) 200GB: $2.99/month (USD) 2TB: $9.99/month (USD) The total may not save you money. However, if you are just tired of Evernote and it isn't about the money, then that's not an issue. The migration from E
  3. I agree it is beyond belief that Evernote hasn't added this. Meanwhile, see my AppleScript which provides a workaround. https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/52260-mac-find-and-replace/?do=findComment&comment=497803
  4. Yup. Another option is to go to System Preferences > Keyboard > Services and you can set a keyboard shortcut of your own choosing. I made some minor improvements yesterday and uploaded them to github.
  5. https://gist.github.com/mbierman/1ef3f255ce1ca50bb2fffbf99d715704 here is an AppleScript that does a Find and Replace in EVERNOTE! Thank you, DTLOW ! Note you do have to change the path for databaseFolder. to do that, Go to Evernote. Hold OPTION key while going to "Help > Troubleshooting > Open Database Folder" Copy that path and include a trailing "/"
  6. So attached is my work in progress. I found the right file to edit and it seems to work pretty well! I'm sure it could be improved but this is a nice start. I notice the changes aren't reflected in Evernote until you close and reopen that note. Is there a way to refresh without doing that? Evernote_Note_Folder.scpt
  7. So Now I get the open directory... do I want to edit snippet.txt ? When I do, I don't see any change in the note in Evernote.
  8. Ok I figured out the problem. I didn't have the trailing slash on my path! Many thanks
  9. Yes, I added a picture above that shows the directory path and what is under localNoteStore. And thanks. I thought ZenNote was a texteditor or something.
  10. I'm quite sure I have the right location. But I do notice that the script is calling ZenNote. I'm not sure what the last two lines are trying to do but I don't have ZenNote installed.
  11. So I found the path and tried the script but get this error.
  12. Any resources or code samples you could point me to so I can figure out how to do this?
  13. Like everyone else, I am baffled by the lack of search and replace in Evernote. Both search and replace in a single note and across notes make a lot of sense. Anyone know if this is possible via AppleScript since Evernote seems not to care about users?
  14. When I clip say a Photo to Evernote, I can't immediately set tags on it so I have to open Evernote to tag it. This is very tedious.
  15. Which is why basing it on the URL or URL alone wouldn't be smart. But there are cases (e.g. pictures) where the content could be analyzed to look for matches based on size content (color maps, EXIF data, etc.. Similarly PDFs could be matched with a fingerprint of sorts based on file size, content, meta data.
