  1. I wanted to import a large number of files (mainly pdfs) into my premium account. This solution works well on Linux - I presume it would also run on OSX assuming you have a command line emailer available. I used "mutt" and a oneline command line script like so: for i in <DIRECTORYNAME>/* ; do echo -n "$i" ; echo -n "..." ; mutt <YOUREVERNOTEEMAIL> -s "$i" -a "$i" </dev/null ; echo " done" ; done Just replace <DIRECTORYNAME> and <YOUREVERNOTEEMAIL>. This creates a note for each file, with the title as the filename. Hope this helps someone. It will certainly help me the next time I want to do it and can't remember the mutt command line options.
  2. I would like to enable people to use a time management approach that I have developed using Evernote. Basically, I would like them to be able to reproduce the notebook stack, including content, and tags on their own system so that they can use the system themselves. But when I export using Enex, then import, I just end up with an 'Imported' folder and notes. (The tags do come across though as I added all tags to one note). Is there an easy way to do this? Grateful for any help.
  3. Maybe I am missing something simple, but I cannot figure out an easy one-step way to copy an email into Evernote, and the manual is no help (it refers to using the Safari bookmarklet for some reason). Things that should work, but don't, are dragging an email to Evernote from Mail, right clicking on selected text inside mail and using a service there to capture the selection. The only thing that works right now is selecting text, copying it, and then pasting as a new note. Isn't there a better way??? If there isn't please add any of the above to the feature requests for the Mac version. Thanks for any tips about this!
  4. I imported a folder from a usb to evernote by dragging it into a newly created Notebook. The folder, subfolders and files were imported but in a zip file. Now everytime I want to access them I hv to uncompress. Is there a way to import without turning them into zip files? Also now when I can not open these zip files in my ipad and iphone,
  5. I have a database with data on hundreds of places of worships here in the Gironde (France) scattered through 500+ towns. Associated with these religious heritage sites are thousands of photos. I gave myself an iPad for Christmas, so that I could show interesting information and photos about them to interested people. To do that, I plan to move a snapshot of the data and photos to the iPad from time to time. After looking at various tools on the iPad, I realized Evernote is a good way to present the data and perhaps the photos. I'm now in the process of automating the process of extracting data from the database in the xml format (enex) used by the Evernote import function. I've hit on two minor glitches. The more I studied Evernote, the more I realized it offers features that make it more and more interesting as a presentation tool. In particular, it can include photos in the notes, and a note can point (or link) to another. Very useful features for my project. And there's the rub. I can't figure out how to create the codes required. The anchor for a link looks like this: <a href="evernote:///view/10320864/s90/41ae8500-04c5-48b5-9db2-ef54b12abff3/41ae8500-04c5-48b5-9db2-ef54b12abff3/" style="color:#69aa35"> and the anchor for a photo looks like this: <en-media hash="6d3f2c361eda9deb31531a84474a00c6" style="cursor: default;" type="image/jpeg"/> I have no idea where the long codes come from or what they point to. My interest is generating something that Evernote can accept and work with. Can anyone offer any idea of how to automatically generate the codes that are used in the xml for links and for photos? Thanks for any suggestions, Harvey
  6. Hi, i am trying to merge huge number text files from other note tools, i try to use the "import folder" function, but after import, the note title is some piece of the note contents, so my question is: how could i import a folder with huge number txt files, and make the txt file name as the note title? thanks, Emre
  7. I have been emailing notes to myself for years = maybe 2500 notes. They are sitting in their own folder in outlook and are emails. How can I get the email content into evernote?
  8. First time poster here, having joined the community today (though I've been an EN user for quite some time). I've just now set up two folders to import into two notebooks in EN for Windows 7 - that way, the imported notes are separated from everything else as I need to tag them before doing anything else. My problem is that they don't seem to be updating. When I added one folder, the two files within in showed up immediately; when I added another, none of the files have yet shown up (it's just been maybe 20 minutes). Is there a long interval on the import, or can I do it manually? Thanks! *Edit: It seems the problem has evolved. The files did indeed import into Evernote, but they went into the wrong folder. Could anything account for this? Under my import settings, I checked to make sure the right destination notebook was listed; it seems to be picking up the files OK but puts them in the wrong place.
  9. Hello, I would love to switch over to Evernote from what I am using now which is Journler. My problem of course is Importing all my entries, almost all of which have inline embedded images, photos, audio, hyperlinks. This script: https://github.com/michaelcaruso/journler-to-evernote Only preserves some of these elements and constantly throws various errors. Is there anything out there that would preserve my Journler structure but allow me to switch over? Any help is appreciated.
  10. The import folder feature on Windows almost works the way I would like it to, but I have a specific use-case where it falls short: I have text files that I edit with a tool outside of Evernote that I would like Evernote to sync up with (one-way, into Evernote only is sufficient for my purposes. I dont edit these files in Evernote, but I use a shared Notebook to share them with others). However, I want to continue to edit these files with the external tool and have Evernote update the same note on import (ie overwrite the note) without creating a new note for each version that it imports. Right now I have to go into Evernote and delete all the old copies of the note that get imported each time the external file is modified by an external tool. What I would like is an option to delete older notes imported from the same file.
  11. Hey, Long story short, I exported by whole Evernote library as HTML files a few months ago (I know, should have used ENEX). Most of my notes had attachments, so I also have corresponding .resources folders along with the HTML files. Is there an easy way to import all of those back into Evernote, along with the attachments? Currently, I have to drag HTML files one-by-one, open the note, drag the contents of the .resources folder to the note, and rince&repeat. As my folder contains many hundreds of notes, this would literally take me days. Anyone know of any AppleScripts or web services that could help?
  12. I suggest that an enhancement to the import folders feature allowing filtering on what is imported would correct issues that I have experienced where Evernote will attempt to import the file before it is completely downloaded into the import folder. I routinely download files directly into an import folder using Chrome. During the download Chrome appends .crdownload to any file until the download is done. Very often Evernote will create a new note with the .crdownload file with partial content. It then removes the file (because that is how I have the options set) and the Chrome download ultimately fails. A "filter" allowing for exclusion of certain editable "patterns" would let me tell Evernote to ignore .crdownload files. Chrome removes that temporary extension when the file is complete. At that point, if this enhancement where to be included in Evernote, Evernote would pick up the completed file. Otherwise, the only way I know how to do this is to download to a separate folder and then move the file to an import folder later - but that is not as useful.
  13. Good morning all, In the past number of days I have exported notes to a local drive on my iMac. I now need to import some of them back in after I deleted them - should of checked first! When I use the Import Notes option from the menu it does not allow me to import the html files that the export created. Any ideas? Thanks Alan
  14. I'm using two programs I wrote to streamline my Evernote processes. EnexFeeder is a Java program to convert ASCII text files into an ENEX file. You can use this to convert a large file of notes (one note per line) into an ENEX file that can be imported easily. This is useful if you take notes in flat text files, or have to import from some other source. EnexRetitler is a Java program to process ENEX files and replace the existing title with the beginning of the note content. This is useful because Evernote mobile clients tend to use the title "Untitled Note" unless you explicitly add a title. I prefer the beginning of the note, especially when I'm using the List viewFiles and instructions can be found here. You'll need Java, which most folks already have. If you don't, you can get it here.
  15. Hi Everyone! Having used Evernote for a while now, I am excited to move towards an all digital workflow. I currently have a Scansnap S1300 and have had fantastic results importing receipts and documents into Evernote. However I would like to import many other documents and don't have the time to spend sitting at my desk scanning everything in (a few thousand documents etc). Therefore I was looking for any recommendations from people using Shoeboxed with Evernote? Is Shoeboxed any good at document scanning? As an Evernote Premium user, I assume Evernote would be able to search within the documents? Has anybody had any issues with importing documents from 'Scanning' places? Is there a cheaper alternative? (I'm currently looking at $177/mth for 1000 documents) Any further comments on their service? Thanks in advance, (FYI: www.shoeboxed.com.au)
  16. I suspect this has been asked a million times but after extensive searching on the forum and Google, I am still not sure of the answer. With Evernote Web app, running on Windows 7 and Google Chrome, can I grab a photo from a hard drive file and drag it into a note? If not, is there any way to do this, other than drag and drop? Thanks, Terence
  17. Greetings, I recently replaced my (very) old Power Mac G5 with an iMac. I was using Soho Notes (previously StickyBrain, which I liked, but not Soho Notes). I just made the move to Evernote. Soho Notes only allowed RTF and Plain Text exports. I have about 200 RTF files I need to import into Evernote. Although I have explored the Blogs, Knowledge Base and Forums. I am having a little difficulty figuring out the best way to import these files in. I would appreciate some tips or a link to an existing thread. I have found that I could drag the individual RTF files to the Evernote Helper in the menu bar; but if there is a better way to do this, I would appreciate it. Two of the files that exported from Soho Notes are .xml, any tips about these? I hope I am not overlooking some glaringly obvious way to do this. Thanks in advance, Fred K
  18. I use Evernote on a number of devices, but on my Mac laptop, I always get a message when starting asking me if I'd like to import notes from the previous version of Evernote. Whatever I choose, the next time I run Evernote, I'll get the same message. I've uninstalled the app and reinstalled it, and the same thing happens. Running Mountain Lion, and the latest version of Evernote (Version 5.0.4 (400702))
  19. Hiya- I was wondering if there is any way to open MS OneNote docs in Evernote. Every time I try, it just comes up as an attachment in evernote that wants to open up in onenote (wihich this computer doesn't have). I'm trying to download my OneNote notebook from DropBox to my boyfriend's computer which doesn't have OneNote. Help please?
  20. If I merge notes, the top note becomes the top note in the merged note. If I have several notes that are in Evernote in a sequence by date, and I merge them, the last note becomes the top note because the notes are sorted most recent first. I have no problem with changing the sort order to make the note order correct before merging the notes, but could someone please consider adding a feature for merging notes that will show a pop-up window that will let us choose the order of the notes being merged? That would be a nice feature.
  21. I would like to export my notes from Outlook and import to Evernote, on a Mac (not PC).
  22. I have lots and lots of text notes on my thumb drive. How do I get them all into Evernote? I've searched for this topic but found nothing. My note taking life did not start with this evernote account and it seems absurd that I would need to add them a note at a time via the web page. I have no personal internet access so using the Evernote app on a PC or any USB device is not an option assuming the app has some sort of an import function. Thanks for any help.
  23. I would like some method of being informed of recent imports. I use FileThis to import various monthly billing statements and I need a way to identify new bills when I open Evernote. I thought that "Recent Notes" might do that but I now understand that Recent Notes only lists notes that I have recently edited. Perhaps there could be another category called Imported Notes? Or, perhaps Recent Notes could include newly imported notes as "recent"? As it stands, I pretty much have to check every single statement category to see if there is a new statement. This is not too convenient.
  24. I am a new Evernote user and have been spending the past few hours reading as much as I can on getting up to speed using Evernote. I have been using webclipper and email to get items into Evernote, but I wonder if there is a way of putting content into Evernote similar to what I have been doing with DropBox. For example, if I scan something to a PDF, or receive an email which has a PDF attachment, what I have been doing with Dropbox is I have Dropbox set up as a "folder" on my desktop computer. I can open the PDF, and then click "Save As" (or do the same with a Word document) and then choose to "save it" to my Dropbox folder which effectively puts it in my dropbox and makes it available across all platforms. I am not sure how to achieve something similar with Evernote. If I have a Word document, or a receipt that I scanned into my computer or someother PDF, is there any way of getting it into Evernote other than emailing to my Evernote email address? TIA (thanx in advance)
  25. Hi, I'm a fairly new user of Evernote and managed to go almost completely paperless with a Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500 in two months. I've been having some issues in setting up a workflow which works for me because I had problems with documents being imported multiple times or not at all. With a bit of testing and the help of Evernote support I now have a workflow which uses minimal amounts of input or time from me and I'd like to share it. Mainly because in my quest to find answers to my problems, I saw numerous postings of people having the same problems. My workflow looks like this: - Scan Document. - OCR document with external (not ScanSnap's built-in) ABBYY FineReader software. - Move OCR'ed document to a folder structure per month (e.g. c:\administration\2013\05). - Let Evernote import the document.The reason I use the external OCR software is that I want to have all my OCR'ed documents stored locally and the Dutch language isn't supported by the ScanSnap software. I use DropIt (http://dropit.sourceforge.net) to watch a specific folder and move my OCR'ed pdf files to the folder/subfolder structure where Evernote picks it up (folder: c:\administration\2013\, sub-folders: yes, source: keep). The problem I had in the beginning was that sometimes documents where imported multiple times or not at all. It all traced back to the Archive file attribute. When checked, Evernote sees the document as ready for import and clears the attribute after it is imported. When OCR'ing documents, most of the time these programs use a temporary file. If this temp file is saved in one of the Evernote import folders, it is possible that these are imported during the OCR process which leads to two files. Another thing I saw happening was when the archive attribute couldn't be reset by Evernote, probably because the OCR process locked the file, leading to multiple imported files. The issue I had when none of the files where imported was because of the program I used cleared the Archive file attribute when moving, so Evernote didn't import it. Maybe a bit overkill, but in more detail this is what happens now: Scan document to file: c:\temp\201305301.pdf (ScanSnap) OCR document to file: c:\temp\201305301_OCR.pdf (ABBYY FineReader) Archive attribute: checked (ABBYY FineReader) Watch for files ending in '_OCR.pdf' in c:\temp\ (DropIt) Move document to file: c:\administration\2013\05\201305301_OCR.pdf (DropIt) Import (Evernote) Archive attribute: unchecked (Evernote)I hope this helps someone!
