  1. How to Extract Annotation Comments from PDF File in EN Mac Over the years, there have been requests for a feature/tool to extract annotation comments from a PDF file that is attached to an Evernote Mac Note. In fact, I too have been looking/searching for such a tool to use with PDFs in general. But I found no good solution. Turns out the solution has been right here under my nose all the time: Mac Automator So I am posting link to the Automator workflow (saved as a "service") that I have created that all can use: [PDF] Extract PDF Comments.workflow.zip I use Adobe Acrobat Pro to view/annotate my PDF files. If you use another app to EDIT/annotate your PDF files, you will probably need to change: the Automator workflow to use that app. the AppleScript in the workflow to use that app, as in: tell application "<YourPDFAppName>" Save this file to your Services folder: ~/Library/Services and then unzip the file by double-clicking on it. You may then delete the zip file if you wish. If you wish to set a keyboard shortcut for this service, goto Mac > System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts > Services How to Use: Double-click on the PDF file header in your EN Mac Note This opens the PDF in your default app Press the shortcut you set above, or goto [AppName] > Services > [PDF] Extract PDF Comments in the Apple menu bar. The PDF Comments will be extracted and put on the Clipboard Paste into your EN Mac Note, or wherever you'd like. BTW, this will work with any PDF file you have open, even if it does NOT come from Evernote. Disclaimer: This Automator workflow should work on any PDF that has annotation comments created according to the Adobe specification. I have tested ONLY with Adobe Acrobat. I do not know if it will work with PDF annotations created by the EN Mac annotation tool. Here's what it looks like: The AppleScript script simply gets the file alias of the frontmost, active document open in Adobe Acrobat Pro. on run {input, parameters} tell application "Adobe Acrobat Pro" tell its active doc set fileAlias to file alias end tell end tell return fileAlias end run
  2. The package: EVND (Ever Notedown) So this is a plugin for Atom Editor by Github that acts like an alternate editor for the Evernote Mac Client. Basically it extends Atom's Markdown editing capacities with features like LaTeX/MathJax equation editing, TOC, footnotes, image insertion via pasting, etc. And it communicates with the Evernote Mac Client via AppleScript so it can do things like creating/updating notes (as rendered HTML), import notes from Evernote and convert to Markdown formats, etc. I initially wrote this for my own use, and over the course of about a year, it has become increasingly…complicated. And I’m guessing that other people might find some use with this, so I thought I’d share. (And if there are developers out there interested in this project, that wuold be great -- it's open source under MIT license). I’ve been using EVND to write my notes, but I don’t have the time or means to do more serious tests, hence I can only say the status is “Works For Me”. Since it uses AppleScript, so obviously it's OSX only. But as Evernote has similar scriptibility for OSX and Windows, so it should be very easy to extend it to support Windows, if there are developers out there interested in doing so.

  3. I've understood that there is no "native" way to automatically import stuff from a given folder in the Mac version of Evernote, without resorting to AppleScripts that may or may not work after an update to either the operating system or Evernote. But, in the Windows version you can do this from Evernote itself. So this is something of a workaround, but if you use Dropbox or any other Cloud storage service (who doesn't these days?) AND you have access to a Windows computer that stays on most of the time, like a media sharing machine at home, your computer at work, in the basement or whatever, you can set up Evernote for Windows on that one, and set the Import folder to be a folder in your Cloud service. This way, any file that is placed in this folder from any computer, will be synced to Evernote through the Windows machine automatically no matter where you happen to be when putting it in there. The caveat is that the Windows machine must stay powered on at all times for this to work seamlessly. If you just want to be sure that the contents gets into Evernote eventually, you can rely on it being imported when you power on the Windows machine, anyway. Just a clumsy workaround for something that should be implemented on all versions of Evernote! Chris
  4. I have to import several images to an Evernote notebook but I need to have each note creation date changed to the image creation date. I'm trying to do it using Hazel and AppleScript but had no success changing the note creation date. I set Hazel to monitor a folder on my Mac looking for new images and I have the following script sending them to Evernote: tell application "Evernote" activate create note from file theFile notebook {"Test"} end tell I'm not a developer and have little experience with AppleScript. That said I have already tried my best using, for example, "creationDate" to completing the script and could never get it to change the creation date. All I got so far was a loop importing the same file over and over again or an error from Hazel. Would appreciate some help from you guys. Thank you!
  5. Hi, following a discussion requesting the ability to link Apple Mail messages into Evernote, I post this applescript. The procedure is: select an evernote Note (target) select one or more message(s) in Apple's Mail run the script. Link(s) will be created in the selected Evernote Note pointing to the Mail message(s). The link will work on any other mac having the same Mail account and even on iOS devices (provided the message is one of the most recent ones). Feel free to use it and modify at your convenience. set _links to {} set _Titles to {} set _dates to {} tell application "Mail" set _sel to get selection repeat with _msg in _sel set _messageURL to "message:\\%3c" & _msg's message id & "%3e" set end of _links to _messageURL set myTitle to the subject of _msg set end of _Titles to myTitle set theDate to date received of _msg set theString to ((time string of theDate) & " " & (day of theDate) as string) & " " & (month of theDate) as string set theAuthor to sender of _msg set theString to theString & " - " & theAuthor & " - " set end of _dates to theString end repeat set AppleScript's text item delimiters to return set the clipboard to (_links as string) end tell tell application "Evernote" activate try set theNotes to selection repeat with thisNote in theNotes set theHTML to HTML content of thisNote repeat with n from 1 to count of _links set _messageURL to item n of _links set theTitle to item n of _Titles set theDate to item n of _dates -- append thisNote html "<div><b><a href=" & _messageURL & ">" & theTitle & "</a></b></div>" set theHTML to "<div><b>" & theDate & " <a href=" & _messageURL & ">" & theTitle & "</a></b></div>" & theHTML set HTML content of thisNote to theHTML end repeat end repeat end try end tell
  6. Hello everyone! I am certainly not a pro in applescript. i am building an export routine in applescript exporting notebook. I know: this has been the content of a few forums already... and it works well. I just want to make it better... At the moment, the script exports all the notebook i tell him or all of them. That is fine. The only thing I wold like to add is: Tell the script to compare if the notebook modification date if newer than the existing exported file on the disk. For date i need to get the modification of the notebook in question and compare it with the date of the already exported file on disk. That would be no problem, if i would not be stuck on the that d..... modification date. set modification to "whatever" does not work - or i do something wrong - which is absolutely possible! Heeelp! Thanks Here the script (starting version) - if i do not get over this - i cannot continue... with timeout of (30 * 60) seconds tell application "Evernote" activate display dialog "Evernote running" delay 2 set notebookName to ("!Inbox") display dialog notebookName delay 2 set datestamp to (modification date) display dialog datestamp delay 4 end tell end timeout
  7. These new weblinks are extremely frustrating. I don't want them. I need Evernote to spring into action when I click on an Evernote link not my web browser. I do not understand why this option has eclipsed the classic link? I have Evernote on all my devices and the internal link opens the app on whichever device I'm using no matter where it was created. Using Evernote in a browsers, especially on mobile devices is a nightmare, which I assume is why we have the apps! Please O please give us an option to change the default links. There are some reasons I need internal links: 1. I do not save passwords in browsers and need to constantly log in. 2. Evernote is always running, my browser isn't. 3. I don't always have internet access. 4. It is so much easier to have applications that link to Evernote have those links open in the Evernote app and not the browser. The browser app is far inferior to the actual app on my mac. So, question: How do I set the default linking method to be the classic links? Why? I use a number of Keyboard Maestro actions which are now broken as the require the classic link which is difficult to simulate using Keyboard Maestro.
  8. I have a script that moves the currently selected note to a notebook called "Notes". It is mapped to ctrl-opt-f using "FastScripts" so I can quickly file things. I have been using it since 25 Jun 2014 with no trouble. Since 23 Jul 2014, moving notes with this script causes the change to "Notes" notebook to not sync. The note is still in "Notes" on the Mac client (5.5.2 (402634 Direct)) where I used the script, but not on any of the other clients (other Mac, iOS, web).I have confirmed this through repeated experiments. Here are the tests I did to confirm this:View a set of notes in the "Incoming" notebook in Mac Evernote client Change the notebook of "Note 1" to "Notes", using the drop down list to left of tags Sync Mac, then sync iPad "Note 1" shows up in "Notes" on iPad Change the notebook of "Note 2" to "Notes" using ctrl-cmd-m, then selecting "Notes" from the drop down list Sync Mac, then sync iPad "Note 2" shows up in "Notes" on iPad –– Everything is fine up to here –– Change the notebook of "Note 3" to "Notes" using ctrl-opt-f that calls the attached script Sync Mac, then sync iPad "Note 3" shows up in "Incoming" on iPad, even after multiple re-syncs. It should be in "Notes"I raised this as ticket # 655982 , and received the following reply from support, so I assume they will not investigate further. My script is attached. Has anyone seen anything like this before?
  9. I am trying to create a Hazel script that takes a date from the file Hazel is making an Evernote note from and uses that as the creation date of the note. Can anyone tell me how to do this? I've got a script that can do this after the fact, but I can't seem to get it to work within Hazel. Thanks in advance! Jamie
  10. I used to have an applescript that worked well for me. It would create a note and named it based on the date, then place the cursor at the first space and TYPE (not paste, type) a brief word. The reason the typing is important is the word typed was a textexpander trigger word. This has worked great for years but it no longer does. Here is the part that no longer seems to be working. tell application "Evernote" activate tell application "System Events" keystroke return keystroke "..journal " keystroke return keystroke " " end tell end tell This used to call up the front note (created above) go into the note then type keystrokes using System Events. It no longer does that. it still seems to type the letters, but it's somewhere is space, not the note. It does trigger textexpander, but even then it's not in the note so it doesn't matter. Any idea on what has changed and how to fix this?
  11. Migration (Import) of Evernote Notes into Another App I'm not leaving Evernote now, but to give comfort to myself and others I've done some research about how to import Evernote notes into another, as-of-yet unnamed app. So, I'd like to present here some ideas and specific techniques and scripts to accomplish this import. In fact this is presented in the same light as the Evernote promise that "your data is portable" and "we still want to make sure that they can leave the service quickly and easily. There is no data lock-in with Evernote." in their Evernote's 3 Laws of Data Protection, June 3, 2014. To that end, Evernote provides two export formats: ENEX and HTML. Many have expressed concerns about being able to import their Evernote Notes into another system.In fact, some are so greatly concerned that they have limited their use of Evernote to exclude use of Tags for fear they will not be able to get the Tags into another system. That might be the most conservative approach, but, IMO, it is also extremely limiting. For a solution of combining Title and Tags, see bottom of this post. I feel sure that when/if the time comes to move to another system, we will be able to find and/or create a process to get our EN Notes into that system. I say that for these reasons:My personal experience over 25+ years of doing data migrations. The number of existing tools, scripts, techniques for migration (export/import) Any NEW app that wants to capture the PIM market will likely provide an Evernote import toolOver the last 25+ years, I have migrated many dozens of client datasets from their existing system/database/app to a new one. It has never failed, although there is often some type of cleanup of a few records after the import. This is to be expected. To achieve the migration, I used a variety of tools, including:Database SQL and export toolsMS Visual Basic for Applications (VBA)MS Excel with custom macros and manual manipulationsMS Word with custom macros and manual manipulationsImport Tools of the new systemMigration Using Windows Tools As you can guess from the above, all of those were in Windows-based systems.I'm not sure of all of the Evernote related tools available for Windows, but there are tools like:ENScript (ThoughtAsylum Article, other refs?)AutoHotKeyThe EN APIOf course, you can export to HTML using EN Win, and use VBA (or other language) to process/convert and import into the new Note app.Others? (please post if you know of others) Migration Using Mac Tools Today, many of us use Macs, and have a lot of our data, like EN Mac, stored on the Mac.Mac tools include:AppleScriptMac AutomatorHazelOthers? (please post if you know of others) Fortunately, the Mac offers a great scripting system, AppleScript, that works great with the Mac OS and almost all Mac apps. Evernote has a very rich AppleScript dictionary and interface. There are already a number of great, extensive, AppleScripts at Veritrope.com to migrate EN Notes to another system/app. (There are also some great scripts to import into Evernote). EN Mac AppleScripts From Veritrope.comExport Evernote Items to Day One Evernote to MacJournal Exporter Export From Evernote to YojimboEvernote to DEVONthink ExporterExport Selected Evernote Items as RTFD Files Get All Information from An Evernote Item It seems like new sources and tools are emerging almost daily:Revert.io — provides automatic backup and a true restore.Since they clearly know how to access Evernote Cloud, if the need/opportunity arises (like Evernote shutting down) I would expect Revert.io to offer migration/export toolsMS OneNote — Some 3rd party initially offered a EN-ON migration tool, but as ON becomes more popular MS might offer their own migration tool.Synology NAS Note Station app — offers import from Evernote Finally for those that don't use tags, and put their keywords into the Note Title because they fear tags won't import into another system/app, I offer this simple solution:Put your keywords into Tags, not in the Note TitleIf/when you want to export to a new system, it is simple enough to use a tool like AppleScript to append the Tags at the end of the Note Title when doing the export.So you can use tags while using Evernote, and append tags to Title for use with other systems. I'm not trying to reengage the debate on Tags vs Titles here. For that discussion, please see The Benefit of Using Tags. Conclusion I hope this thread will give comfort to all of us that we can use all of the features of Evernote knowing that should the time come (and I hope it doesn't) that we are forced to move to another PIM app, that we will be able to do so, even though it might take some work. Please feel free to post your constructive comments, concerns, and suggestions.
  12. How can I add multiple text selections, clippings etc to the same note? Evenote Helper lets me add multiple screenshots sequentially into the same note, but I'd like to do the same with multiple text selections and web clippings as well. Let's say I'm researching something by reading 3 books and browsing at the same time. I'd like to be able to 1. use the same shortcut [ 'Add to Evernote' or 'Paste to Evernote' etc.] to repeatedly add snippets I highlight from the books to the same note, 2. similarly add selected text from different web pages one after another to the same note; also, [ not necesssary if it requires complicated re-engineering] 3. add web clippings to same notes. Any subset of the above 3 things would be great. Is there a way to do any subset of this? The Merge feature is no substitute: snippets from everywhere when merged result in a gazillion gray dividers saying 'Untitled' which cant be deleted even with the 'Find and Replace text' feature since the gray backgrounds have to be deleted manually. Please let me know if there is any solution to this: direct feature, 3rd party app/feature, manual hacks etc. If there is no existing solution, then please add a feature that resembles even a small subset of this. This is a real pain point. Thanks
  13. I recently upgraded from Outlook 2011 to 2016. I had a really nice script available in the older version where I was able to select an email and, I suppose it could be called, print it to EN after selecting a notebook from a list. It was really quite nice. The resulting note in EN was clean without any of the forwarding ">" and other litter that comes with it. Dragging and dropping to EN leaves it in EML format as a file attachment. MS has chosen to not allow for the Applescripts in this new version. Any suggestions for alternative methods of achieving this?
  14. Hi, I'm hoping that you can help with a problem I'm really stuck on, given I'm a premium user. Im using applescript to automate some tasks, (importing a bunch of files from a tree of directories) and it is working well. However, I need to determine if, as I'm about to upload an additional file, if I've already uploaded it before, within a specific notebook. I'd like to do this based upon having set the "source url" for each note to the location I originally attached the file from. So, as I'm creating a note, with a file attachment, I've set the source url to its path on my Mac. The problem comes when I use the "fine notes" commend with both notebook and sure url as the search string. Both are variables, which are set depending upon the notebook I'm working in, and the file I want to upload in a note (or don't want to if already present). I'm having trouble getting the search syntax right. I've need successful earlier in the script, searching for notes within a notebook, and having specific tags. However the syntax for the source url search is eluding me... too many quotes and slashes for nested quotes. its very sensitive to spaces etc. for example to fine a specifically tagged note within a notebook I used the follow, and it works well.... set searchTag to "Attachment_Index_Note" set matches to find notes "notebook:\"" & EVnotebook & "\" tag:\"Attachment_Index_Note\"" if matches = {} then # no such note...else # found the note ...end if Now to my questions... I want to do a similar search, but to see if a note in a notebook (in a variable, as above) with a specific source url (in a variable unlike above) exists.For example, I've tried... set SNotes to {} tell application "Evernote" set SNotes to find notes "notebook:\"" & EVnotebook & "\" source URL: \"" & new_attachment_path & "\"" #<<<---- The Problem Part - syntax end tell # BYPASS STORED FILE Feature if SNotes is equal to {} then # no such file ... #can make the file. end if Can anyone help with this?
  15. I want to run an AppleScript to check my calendar every sunday for the next week, and if there is a repeating all-day event, put it as a note into Evernote. I successfully wrote the script that can select all-day events and put them into notes, but NOT THE ONES THAT ARE REPEATING. It seems, that repeating events are not really in the calendar on the (repeating) specific days, more like they are only a calculated iteration of the first event that repeats. Is there a solution or a workaround for this?
  16. Because EN Mac does not provide us with a total account count of Notes, Notebooks, and Tags, I put together this simple AppleScript do to the job. Just copy/paste this code into your AppleScript, or Script, Editor, and save to the ~/Library/Scripts/Applications/Evernote folder. You may need to create the Applications and Evernote folders. I named the file EN Account Statistics (Counts).scpt When you are in the EN Mac app, you can run this script from the Scripts icon in the menu bar. Enjoy! --—————————————tell application "Evernote" --————————————— set strAcctName to (name of current account) set numTags to count of tags set numNB to count of notebooks set numNotes to count of (find notes "*") set strMsg to "Account Name: " & strAcctName ¬ & return & return & "Num of Notes: " & numNotes ¬ & return & "Num of Notebooks: " & numNB ¬ & return & "Num of Tags: " & numTags set strMTitle to "Evernote Mac Account Statistics" display dialog strMsg with title strMTitle ¬ with icon caution end tell
  17. Hello. I am in a Windows environment at work, using OS X at home and iOS8 in between. EN on all platforms and OmniFocus on the Apple devices. Outlook at work is set up with a VBS that forwards any emails of my choice to Omnifocus. What I am missing, is a way to send stuff from my EN on Windows to Omnifocus. To do this, I downloaded the attached script from asianefficiency.com. This script is supposed to add notes tagged with "review"in EN, to OmniFocus and include a link directly to the note in the local EN app. By leaving the Mac at home on, with EN, Lingon 3 and Omnifocus running, all EN notes I tag with "review" in Windows at work should be synced back to EN on Mac at home and then be read by the Applescript and added to Omnifocus on the Mac. This is again synced to my iOS8 device, which I intend to use as my task manager at work. Now, it seems to more or less do this, but something strange is going on with the "review" tag in EN; it seems to be copied in increments ("review 1", "review 2", "review 3" etc..) and sometimes removed entirely and then changing tags on notes from "review" to one of these copied ones. The script will only touch notes tagged with "review", so for many notes it does not do anything. Also it deletes the tag entirely from EN. I want the tag to remain in the taglist and have tried with unassign instead of delete in the script, but that just leaves the tags on the notes, so Omnifocus keeps getting copies of the same notes over and over.. Im suspecting my issues may have something to do with multiple devices syncing EN together, creating conflicts, but I don´t know much about this stuff. Anybody who understands what is going on here and is able to help me? Evernote2Omnifocus.rtf
  18. I had a few conflicts between notes recently, so wrote an applescript to call an external diff tool, which saves having to export the notes. It compares the XML version of the note (easy to change to HTML) since the lines in the contents.html note file seemed to be concatenated together. The XML file seem to be more consistent with number of lines. The markup tags are still shown, but should still give an indication of the lines that changed. Hopefully an integrated diff tool might be include in Evernote at some stage (*Applescript to launch a diff tool to compare two notes in Evernote. Useful to compare conflicting notes1. Place the script file in ~/Library/Scripts/Applications/Evernote2. Ensure Applescript menu bar item is on. Option to turn on/off is under General Preferences in AppleScript Editor3.

  19. Hi, I'm try to automate a workflow. What I want to do is be able to automatically import a scan (or PDF) directly into Evernote without having evernote pop up a dialogue box (i.e. just do it in the background or automatically). I've been playing around with the Fujitsu IX500 Scansnap software, with Folder Action and even IFTTT - but can't get them to do exactly what I want. Folder Actions probably comes closest but each time a new document is scanned Evernote still pops up with a dialogue box asking what notebook to put it in and what tags. So does anyone have a way to just have a PDF be automatically added to Evernote without doing anything? Thanks!
  20. Hi Evernote fans! I'm new to Evernote, but not to the concept. Thanks for making a great product. I own a Fujitsu ScanSnap s1500m scanner (and it's awesome). For the past 18 months, I scan in all my papers, receipts, everything into Mariner Software's "Paperless" application. While I like this application, the absence of an iPad/iPhone version and/or a Web version is quite limiting. I would like to migrate my entire Paperless library (~1400 documents at last count, mostly PDF) including tags into Evernote. Does anyone know how how? I have nicely sorted all my documents in Paperless to have their correct date, and tagged - and would like to have this reflected in Evernote (i.e. tags, creation date). It's very easy to simply drag + drop all files into Evernote and have them appear as Notes but I would like my tags to be carried over and creation date saved. Anyone have any ideas? I really don't want to have to spend days figuring out how to write a script to export from the Paperless SQLite database, and then another script/tool to import into Evernote.... Thanks Ryan.
  21. I made an AppleScript that will export all your EN records to an enex file. They are store in your Library/Application Support/Evernote-Backups folder If that folder above does not exist, it will be made for you. There are no code changes you need to make, just run the script, and you will end up with a time and date stamped backup. run it once a day, once a week, as you see fit. I was trying to do this all in a shell script with HEREDOCs but it was not working or proving too time consuming. Had I been able to, I could have scheduled this to run once a day. Right now, Applescripts can be scheduled, but they are foreground apps and would pop open and get in your way. http://pastebin.com/PvqP4tkj Copy that code, paste it into Script Editor, save as an application with no windows or dialog boxes, hook it to Keyboard Maestro or some other Macro app and fire at will. Or just put the app in your dock and click on it once a day.
  22. Automating EN Mac I use a variety of methods to automate routine tasks that I need to perform in EN Mac. Many of these I have associated a keyboard shortcut to the method. You may see my complete list in this EN Shared Note: Evernote Custom Shortcut Keys - EN Prefs, Mac Prefs, AppleScript & KM I share these for those that are interested in automation, and to provide some guidance in choosing shortcut keys. If you are just getting started in Evernote Mac, you might take a look at the above shared Note to get some ideas. I have published most of these AppleScripts and Keyboard Maestro macros in these EN forums and other well-know sites on the Internet. If you are interested in any of these but cannot find them, post here and I'll provide a link. Be sure to try the Forum Tags (shown in the upper left section of this page) listed for this thread. I hope you will find this helpful, and that you will post any automation tools/methods/scripts that you have developed. If you are interested in using KM, see: 20% Discount on Keyboard Maestro
  23. Hi all, I'm using Hazel to move files from my Mac's hard drive into Evernote, using an Applescript to retain Notebook names. Is it possible to retain the tags as well? Here is the applescript I am using thus far: tell application "Evernote" activate create note from file theFile notebook {"! Inbox"} tags {".education"} end tell However, what I would really like to do is have the tags that are currently attached to my files be transferred into Evernote automatically. Is this possible?' Thanks so much!
  24. The "Save PDF to Evernote" under the standard Print menu works great for most applications. However, the one place it doesn't work is from within the Adobe Reader application. In other words, if you're using an application like Keynote or PowerPoint, you can save a PDF version of your document by using the Print/PDF/Save PDF to Evernote function - this is seamless and works flawlessly. However, if the document is ALREADY a PDF, and you're viewing the PDF document from within the Adobe Reader, when you try to use the Print/PDF/Save PDF to Evernote function, you get an error message from Adobe that says "Saving a PDF file when printing is not supported . Instead, choose File > Save." Is there an easy way to get the file from Adobe Reader directly into Evernote? I really don't want to have to save the PDF from within Adobe Reader and then drag/drop (or equivalent) to get the file into Evernote.
  25. It is possible to set the reminder date of a note with applescript? Edit: sorry, I put this topic in the wrong place. How to move to 'Help' section?
