  1. Hi,

     

    I don't know if you ever got round to writing something for this Ryan (I realise this thread is quite old now), but for exactly the reasons you mentioned (searchability), as well as simply to just have all my stuff in one place, I recently did something similar which might be of interest:

     

    EverReader - http://everreader.azurewebsites.net/

     

    It's still a work in progress, but hopefully useful to some other people.


  2. Hi,

     

    There are a couple of approaches you might try.  However, Evernote's scripting facilities on Windows are incredibly rudimentary, so I'm not sure you'll find a way to do exactly what you want.

     

    The first approach is to use the ENScript.exe to run a search query.  You could do something like this:

    ENScript showNotes /q "evernote search query here"

    That command could be called from an AHK script.  You could try to make the search very specific, so that it finds only the single note you're interested in.  But it only executes that search and shows the results, so the note wouldn't be displayed in a dedicated window - that might be enough for you, though.

     

    Another approach would be to create a note link in Evernote to the single note you want to link to.  Then paste this note link in another Evernote note.  Then click edit on that note link, and copy and paste the URL address, which will be something like this:

    evernote:///view/41126/s1/75792a01-ca2d-4627-b9ae-3e266fbed540/75792a01-ca2d-4627-b9ae-3e266fbed540/

    You could then put that address in a .lnk file, or hyperlink it in Word or something.  Clicking that .lnk file would then load just that one note, but again, it would not be loaded in its own dedicated window.  (You can't paste the note link directly into another program, because Evernote will convert it to a link which goes via their website).

     

    A different approach would be to write or record a macro which locates the note in Evernote - this approach could be used to load the note into a dedicated note window if that is what you want, but it might be a bit more fragile.

  3. Hi,

     

    I wanted to let people know about EverReader, which is a web app for reading long-form content in Evernote.  It remembers your position, so you can comfortably read long notes.

     

    It's open source, and the code is available here: https://github.com/ksk100/EverReader

     

    It's also running here: http://everreader.azurewebsites.net/

     

    Currently as a private beta - if you'd like access, just private message me your email and I'll put you on the list.

     

    Thanks

     


  4. Hi,


     


    I'm developing a web app which allows Evernote users to do some batch/bulk editing of their notes, and I was wondering if there are any who would like to be beta testers for this?  


     


    This is a spare time project so it's not progressing at a super speed.  However, I have various bulk rename functions  working on the Evernote developer sandbox server and I anticipate rolling this out to the main server some time in next week or two. If anyone would be interested in becoming a beta tester for such a tool, please send me a private message and I can send you further details once ready.


     


    I hope to add bulk content editing in due course.

     

    All the very best,

  5. Hi,

     

    When using the "Note > Copy Note Link" function Evernote used to produce a local evernote:// link which could be copied and pasted into any application.

     

    This was great because it meant you could create a local link to an Evernote note in, say, a Word file, a mind map, and so on.  Clicking the hyper link would then bring up the note in a dedicated Evernote application window.

     

    This behaviour has recently changed: now using this menu gives one a web-based hyperlink which links you through to the Evernote website.  Presumably helpful to some people, but useless to others, like me.  It was absolutely fantastic to have a local link which loaded in the Evernote application, rather than having to load a browser window and view the note through that.

     

    Does anyone know if its possible to restore the old usage?

     

    Just to note: I'm aware that using the "Note > Copy Note Link" and then pasting the result into an Evernote note still gives one a local link.  They are handling that clipboard content in a special fashion.

     

    Thanks

    I'm here to chime in -- I have around 400 notes I'm moving out of one folder and into a lot of others. But none of the notes I am moving are at the top, so every time I move a couple, I'm sent up to the top, over and over again. This is greatly annoying, of course.

     

    What's worse, Evernote has decided to keep jumping me up to the top of the note list even if I'm doing nothing -- this seems to be a total bug. Help?

     

    I am also experiencing this issue. I am attempting to read through a notebook. As I hit the down arrow to advance to the next note it will sometimes just jump straight up to the first note in the notebook again.

     

    Its really frustrating.

     

    Does an Evernote reboot fix this at all? I haven't found any other suggested fixes.

     

     

    What does an Evernote reboot mean exactly?

     

    I don't think there is any fix for this issue.  I've raised a bug report, and Evernote have acknowledged it's a problem.  

     

    I discovered the following in my discussion with Evernote (for version 4.6) "It does, however, only happen when the Left Pane is open.  If you don't have the Left Pane open then it's fine.  Furthermore, if you close the Left Pane, then reactivate it, the behaviour is not seen until you choose an option from the Left Pane.  As soon as you pick an item from the Left Pane (i.e.  use it to select a notebook, or to run a saved search), then the behaviour is back no matter what you do, unless you close the Left Pane again."

     

    The Evernote response I got was the standard "We've passed the bug onto the person who classifies them, but we cannot fix it for you at this time."  

     

    That was in June this year.  

     

    Given how serious this is as regards usability, it would suggest that Evernote don't practice dogfooding, which although hard to believe would explain a lot.  Either way, I wouldn't hold your breath on this one.  The issue is still there in 5.0.1.


  7. Hi,

    One thing that is incredibly annoying about the Evernote PC client, and which makes it hard to process/deal with lots of notes, is that whenever you perform an operation which would change the list of notes presently visible, the focus jumps right to the top.

    So suppose you have a list of notes, and you're half way down, assigning some to a different notebook, or adding a tag which means they'd disappear from the list, whenever you do that, the focus jumps to first note in the list, and you have to re-find your position.

    Incredibly bad usability issue.

    A similar issue occurs in the note viewing window: if you are reading/editing some note, and then you add a tag (for example), the focus / cursor jumps to the top of a note. This makes it impossible to read through a note, adding appropriate tags as you go, because each time you do, you lose your place. Again, really bad usability.

  8. You mean that you want counts for all saved searches that you have defined? So if I have 40 saved searches, Evernote needs to perform all of those queries?

    Yep, just to barge right in, that is certainly what I would mean. Saved search counts were fantastic. I for one am still missing them very badly indeed.
