  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. Hello, I was thinking, I have all my information in Evernote and majority of my notes are manuals in PDF form for my work. I know I can click on the note and save the attachment out of Evernote, but I was wondering is there a way of do it automatically i.e. every month I export just the PDF's out of my Evernote Database. I use a mac, so if there are any solution known, could it be mac orientated please. Many thanks in advance Regards Mark
  3. 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.

  4. 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
  5. Keyboard Maestro (KM) Macro to Copy EN Mac Note Title to Body with URL For details and download, see the KM forum: MACRO: [EN] Copy Evernote Note Title to Body with URL Evernote does not show the Note Source URL very well in the Note header, and it is often not visible. This macro resolves that issue by copying the Note Title to the top of the Note Body, and creating a hyperlink using the Note Source URL (if available). If not available, then the URL can be optionally obtained from the clipboard. Please feel free to post any bugs or issues you find, as well as suggestions for improvement, in the KM forum thread.
  6. How to Open EN Mac Classic Link in Microsoft Word Using VBA In response to another user's request, I have built several Microsoft Word 2011 Mac VBA macros that will allow you to save the Classic Note link to Word, and then, from Word, open the link in a new Note window. Please see the GitHub Gist: Open Evernote Classic (local) Link in MIcrosoft Word 2011 Mac Using Word VBA Note that any attempt to use the Word built-in hyperlink function (from the UI or VBA) will result in Word changing any URL protocol (like evernote:///) to a file protocol (file:///). So, we can't use the Word hyperlink feature to display the note. If you find any bugs or issues, or have suggestions for improvements, please post in the GitHub Gist Comments section for this code.
  7. 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.
  8. TextExpander Mac 50% Off Hello fellow Mac users! Just in time for Christmas, MacUpdate.com is offering the well-known, popular, TextExpander for nearly 50% off. This is a great product at a great price rarely seen. This is a great utility that I have used many times a day for over a year. I highly recommend it. (I don't recommend many apps, and very, very few this highly) It works very well with Evernote, to automate much of the routine typing you do. I make good use of it to quickly and accurately respond to many of the FAQ posted in these forums. It is also a great time saver in responding to emails. In case you are not familiar with TextExpander, here's a brief summary: See this short, 30 sec video: TextExpander 5 Introduction See the TextExpander site for feature details, and the MacUpdate site to purchase. Full disclosure: I have no relationship with either MacUpdate or Smile Software other than being a paying customer.
  9. 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
  10. I have only recently downloaded AHK, does anyone have experience with the code that would allow me to insert an entire template? TIA.
  11. Hello, I am new with AHK and I've seen there are lots of AHK experts here. Thank you in advance for your feedback. I would like to do a very simple thing...

  12. 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?
  13. Keyboard Maestro (KM) Macro: EN Apply Std Format Ver: 1.0 Last Update: Sat, Feb 14, 2015 Requires: EN Mac 6.0.6 or later Download Macro from: KM Macro Forum: Evernote Mac Apply Standard Format One of the missing features often asked for in Evernote is text formatting Styles, much like what is used in MS Word. This KM Macro is an attempt at providing a very limited "Style" that can be quickly applied to a selection of text in an EN Mac Note. It is NOT a true Style in that there is NO provision to update the Style, and then all text that use the style are automatically changed. But if you, like me, have a need to often change the text format (like from a EN Web Clipping) to match the default font/size you have set for EN Mac, then maybe this KM Macro will help. You will need to review, and change if desired, the font and size that are applied by the KM Macro. This KM Macro applies the following style: Font: Verdana Text Size: 14 pt This KM Macro makes use of the KM Action "Move and Click", selecting the position to click based on the image of the Notebook icon found in the upper, left corner of the EN Note Content panel. If this NB icon is not there, has changed, or has been move, then this KM Macro will fail. How To Use: Select the text in the Note to be formatted Press the KM Hot Key (current set to CTRL+OPT+CMD+F) I am very new to Keyboard Maestro (KM) and I welcome all feedback. Please feel free to post (or PM me) any errors, problems, or suggestions that you might have. Regards, JMichael EN Profile (to send PM)
  14. 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
  15. I just recently wrote this article on Lifehacker on how to Create Desktop Shortcuts to Your Favorite Evernote Notes and Tags. I know you can use command line to do even more than just saved searches -- e.g. creating new notes with certain tags, etc. But I'm not sure what that looks like. In the example pictured above, I add the following code to the end of the "Target" field in the desktop shortcut: showNotes /q "notebook:Lists"If I was to create a desktop shortcut to create a new note with a given tag, what would that syntax look like? where would I put it? Thanks in advance.
  16. Hi, This is a little script I wrote in response on this topic : https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/85914-paste-from-anywhere/ It could be useful to clip multiple selections in a text and then paste them in a new note, or append them in an opened one (if it is already opened in his own window). /* ClipStackctrl-space : add content to the clipboardctrl-alt-space : paste content in the single view note, even if minified (create new one if none is open)ctrl-q : close the script*/#Warn ; Enable warnings to assist with detecting common errors.SendMode Input ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.#NoEnv ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir% ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.#singleInstance;DetectHiddenText, On; -----------------------------------------------------------------------------global compil:=""^Space::clipboard:=""send ^cclipwait, 1compil := compil clipboard "`n"sleep 100return^!Space::clipboard := compilclipwait, 1PasteToEN()send, ^vsleep 100compil:=""return^q::ExitAppPasteToEN(){ IfWinNotExist ahk_class ENSingleNoteView { Send, ^!n WinWaitActive, ahk_class ENSingleNoteView } else { WinActivate, ahk_class ENSingleNoteView } ControlFocus, WebViewHost2 send, ^{end} {enter} return}
  17. 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.

  18. I originally posted this on the Keyboard Maestro Forums, and user, JMichael suggested I put this here. This KM macro will help you very quickly add rich notes to a research inventory note. For those of you who don't know about Keyboard Maestro, just know that it's one of the most powerful automation and productivity tools that exists for Mac. The SituationI'm a research assistant, which means I do a whole lot of grunt work. Often my professor gives me a book with markups in the bibliography and my job is to go and get them from the library and if they're not there, request them through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). I like to make a detailed list of the books I need so that I can just print it out and take it with me when I make my library run and so I can send an inventory to my prof. To find the books, I do a search on Melvyl, a worldwide university library catalog. When I find an item, I want to record its vital information in an Evernote note: The item titleThe call numberA link to the listing page for future referenceThis obviously means a whole bunch of copy/pasting and window switching, i.e. menial work. The MacroMelvyl Listing to Evernote.kmmacros1 (13.8 KB) The automation process centers on getting those three points of data onto their own clipboards and pasting them in the desired fashion. The real awesomeness is that it all get's accomplished with a single keystroke! This is possible thanks to @ComplexPoint's help in using the Execute a JavaScript in Google Chromeaction. The item title and call number each have a unique HTML class, so the script will return the content of the elements with those classes and store them in named clipboard. The macro then does some text cleaning (I'm a formatting freak) and we've got everything we need! I hit the hotkey and end up with: How Would You Use It?This is very specific to my own needs, but maybe the process looks familiar to you? This has already saved me a boat load of time and tedium. If you can adapt this to your own workflow, share it! I realize that parts of this are a bit hacked together, but I don't really know JS (or any scripting language for that matter) so if anyone has any suggestions on streamlining this, let me know!
  19. I know that entering the date in EN is done with Ctrl-semicolon. (Actually, it enters date and time. Is there a way to enter just the date without the time? If so, please let me know.) However, in all my MS Office apps, I enter the date by hitting Alt-N-D in sequence. It's a habit ingrained in me from years of usage. And I can't seem to break the habit of sometimes doing that in EN in an effort to enter the date. But doing that in EN deletes the Note. Is there a way to avoid that problem by somehow changing the way those keystrokes behave in EN at the user level? (Yes, I know it goes to Trash when it's deleted, but it's still unnerving when some of these Notes have a lot of valuable information and countless hours of work in them, and all my machines auto-sync.) Thanks! Jay
  20. 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!
  21. Keyboard Maestro (KM) Macro for EN Mac Global Search This macro solves the issue of incremental search. The EN Mac Search box uses incremental search, that executes a Search for every character you type.This most often results in a faulty search and delays the execution of the users intended search.This KM macro avoids the EN incremental search by getting the entire User input for the Search Terms and then pasting into the EN Mac Search box.It can be executed by a single shortcut key from any app, anywhere in the Mac OS.It provides the additional benefit of providing a default value for the Search text of "intitle:" to make searching for a word in the Note Title very easy just by pressing the Right-Arrow key and typing in the keyword to be searched for in the Note Title.If you don't want "intitle:", just start typing and it replaces it.You can easily modify the default Search text to suit your needs.It also makes it easy to change Search context between "Everything" and the currently selected Notebook filter (if any)If, prior to the Search, you had established a Notebook filter, then EN will show the Search Context in a dropdown after the macro completes.You can then click on either "Everything" or the Notebook name to set the context. This macro can be downloaded from the Keyboard Maestro macro forum. Please reply with any questions, issues, corrections, suggestions, or comments that you have about this macro. If you're using a Mac, Keyboard Maestro is a great tool for this task, and many others. I highly recommend it. KM is available here for a 20% discount.

  22. Keyboard Maestro Macro to Copy Evernote Note Text Selection For those of you who might like to automate EN Mac, you might find this helpful: KM Macro to Copy Evernote Note Text Selection The macro may be downloaded from the above link. Due to a change/bug in Evernote starting with Ver 6.0.3, KM is unable to copy selected text in an EN Note to the clipboard. Using an approach developed by another KM user, Donnel Lu, I have created a reusable, callable, KM macro to copy selected text into a KM variable, which then can be used in many ways, including putting on the standard clipboard as well as named clipboards. Once on a clipboard, you can process it in many ways, including applying formatting styles. Please let me know if you find any bugs/issues/limitations/improvements.
  23. 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.
  24. 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
  25. 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!
