    imho  You're limiting yourself if you intend to use Evernote as your one-and-only editor.
    It's fine for basic notes, but will never offer all the features of a dedicated editor.

    This applies to note taking, word processing, spreadsheets, ...
    I avoid an all-in-one solution; and the free editor that came with my filing cabinet.

    I agree with @DTLow . I follow a very similar workflow, although I use GoodNotes. Any handwritten notes I take in GoodNotes are stored indefinitely in Evernote.

    I use a Shortcuts workflow that I invoke from the iOS sharesheet to use to append meeting information from the original meeting request along with the GoodNotes notes. The GoodNotes notes are fully searchable in Evernote. Works very well. Though, the Shortcuts step isn't necessary. Just as easy to go direct from GoodNotes to Evernote.

    My system is designed around Evernote being my "everything box". Long term storage is EN, but I can have a variety of note inputs -- many typed directly in Evernote, GoodNotes (as above), notes written in the Drafts app, documents scanned in, etc. I seek frictionless input with quick future access/searchability!

      We should only see share icons if the note is shared

    This seems to be a consistent Evernote UI design standard. That is, avoid a clean layout and instead passively inject non-value add (and distracting) display elements. Just when the erroneous clutter was removed from the Sidebar we now have added Notes window clutter.

     


  3. I'm trying to export notes out of a Local Notebook. After selecting all notes and choosing Export, Evernote hangs on the "Downloading content..." dialog box. No progress.

    If I choose individual notes or a handful of notes, I'm able to export successfully. Seems there is a corrupt note somewhere in the mix. There are 335 notes in this particular notebook so I do not want to manually export each one.

    How do I troubleshoot this? What is best way to find the offending note(s)? thanks for guidance -- jay

    To rebuild the spotlight search index

    @DTLow that option does not resolve the problem. At least in my environment. That was one of the first things I tried when the problem first appeared.

    I've had an open support ticket with Evernote for some time to resolve the issue. Of course, early in the troubleshooting they too suggested this (and other) steps. They've since acknowledged the issue and have said a fix is pending.

    Fortunately, the steps described by @jaume have resolved my issue. 


  5. @jaume, where is your tip jar??? ?  Thanks for the nudge in the right direction... I created the symlink based on the Jens Willy post, not yours. I re-worked to create the correct symlink (to point to content) and it worked!!

    I really am sincerely grateful to you for taking time to post here and to respond to my question. 

    I'm perplexed why the Evernote team has been so slow to fix. Nonetheless, I seem to be back (finally) in working order.

    again... my thanks to you -- jay


  6. @jaume, first off... THANK YOU for posting. This problem continues to plague me and significantly impacts my daily workflow. I appreciate you posting.

    Unfortunately, I’m blindly following the steps in your post and the Jens Willy blog post. Not working for me.

    In his first step he instructs to run mdimport to show spotlight indexers. He goes on to state there should only be one and it should be in the application bundle. I do only have one entry, but it is: /Applications/Evernote.app/Contents/Library/Spotlight/EvernoteSpotLightImporter.mdimporter

    I left that alone and continued on with his other step (#4) to run  mdimport /Users/username/Library....  This was after I added the symlink per your instructions.

    When I run the mdimport command I simply see series of I/O warnings...

    “failed to load external entity “/Users/<my user name>/Library/Application Support/com.evernote.Evernote/accounts/www.evernote.com/<my account number>/localNoteStore/content/<record guid>/content.enml

    Any suggestions on other steps I should take? Thanks again for helping an Evernote friend in great need!  :-). — jay

     

    edit (FWIW)... I just scrolled to top of the listing for the mdimport command execution. As Jens Willy posted in one of his responses, I also received 3 dyld warnings related to LC_RPATH “@executable_path/.... being ignored in restricted program because of @executable_path”.


  7. Prior to version 7, Evernote supported hiding Recent Notes in the sidebar. Version 7 only allows an all or nothing choice with hiding Shortcuts and Recent Notes. Linking those 2 as a single toggle does not make sense. Setting up Shortcuts is an intentional activity. I wouldn't set them if I didn't want to use them. Recent Notes is not the same. I don't want to see them. Ever.

    Please restore prior capability.

    Maybe the note is a deleted one - Not sure whether the script works there.

     

     

    Great thought. To be sure, I expunged all of my deleted messages. Problem hasn't gone away... still stuck on those two entries

    jayelevy:

    I don't know of a way to do that in Evernote, but here is a quick and dirty AppleScript to search for that ID. Just change the ID in the first line - select all your notes in Evernote and start the script. Once it found the ID it pops out the title.

    Hope this helps.

    set searchID to "9b43a876-2dc0-45e0-a0fc-d21655a8d128"tell application "Evernote"set selectedNotes to selectionrepeat with theNote in selectedNotesif note link of theNote contains searchID thendisplay dialog title of theNote as textexit repeatend ifend repeatdisplay dialog "Search Done!"end tell

     

    Palladion, thank you so much for the script suggestion. Alas, I ran it and it did not find either note.

     

    To be sure I hadn't made an AppleScript mistake, I also used a modified version of the script to return the "note link" of an existing note to then validate the script would work for a note in my database. Worked perfectly! So, no problems at all with the AppleScript.

     

    Back to square 1...

     

    I've submitted an EN Support Request. Perhaps I will get some help through that avenue. 

     

    I do welcome other ideas for troubleshooting!


  10. can you export those notes, delete them and then try to sync?

     

    then maybe import them one at a time and see if it breaks.

     

    thanks for the quick response. I definitely will try, but don't know how to correlate the internal name (e.g. 9b43a876-2dc0-45e0-a0fc-d21655a8d128) to the note. i.e., how do I find these 2 notes??


  11. I updated to Beta 4 this morning. Now, EN is hanging trying to synch. Blue arrows are rotating but never finish. I have also noticed CPU is pegged with EN at 102.9%.

     

    I do not know how to troubleshoot this any further. Clearly, significant impact to my workflow this morning. -- jay

     

    It appears there are 2 notes that are causing the sync to fail (assuming I understand the Activity Log). The following messages are flooding the Activity log. How do I find these 2 notes using the internal reference info included in the activity log?

    Interesting that this began with the Beta 4 update, though maybe co-incidence??

  13. I wasnt trying to create confusion thru multiple posts. I only posted a second time because the other post in beta 1 thread had no response after an extended period. Only then realized there was a new beta 3 thread. Glad to now know the issue is being researched and i will certainly carefully choose threads for future posts!! :-)


  14.  

     

    Prior to Beta 3 (though I skipped Beta 2) and certainly in current GA release, I was able to drag an Apple mail message from Apple mail into an EN note and bring over the full email (.eml file). As of Beta 3, when I do this action, EN is only including a URL back to the original message. Assuming this was a product change, this is a significant step backward. No longer can I store a message I want to save with a note independent of Apple Mail. Was this fundamental capability removed?

     

    Please don't double post. We're looking into it.

     

     

    Sorry, there was no response on the Beta 1 forum and then I realized there was a new Beta 3 forum. So, I assumed the Beta 1 thread had gone dormant. Glad to hear this is being researched! thanks for the response

    Any feedback on this issue?

  18. Capture Selection from Screen option in context menu while editing note seems to not be working.

     

    After making this choice, the Grab function is initiated, but after selecting a portion of the screen, releasing the mouse and control returned to the EN note, the image copied is not pasted. Instead, a square with a blue question mark is inserted into the note.


  19. So maybe this change goes back before late 2013? 

     

    These are all notes linked more recently. It looks as if (from my naive perspective) EN re-indexed all of my notes when I installed the Beta. I'm sure I'm wrong, but that seems to be the symptom.

     

    btw, I just setup your suggested Siri to Evernote workflow... AWESOME! Thanks for that tip.

  20.  

    Are these links for notes within the Evernote client?  I thought you meant URLs for shared notes.

     

     

    Dan, yes. Sorry that wasn't clear. These are all notes linked using the the URL captured by right clicking on a note and selecting "Copy Classic Note Link". I frequently will link related notes using this method (i.e., copy URL using prior step and then pasting into another note by creating a link using Format>Link>Add... (or ⌘K ). I hope that clarifies the use case.


  21. jayelevy, we haven't experienced this. We'll verify. Thanks.

     

    I realize this does not provide any insight for troubleshooting, but here's a simple example of one note. All of my links have changed.

     

     

     
    Any thoughts on the other post regarding certain AppleScript no longer working?
