  1. For the second time in a year, Evernote's search (Mac Desktop version) has begun to fail to return results that turn up when searching in the mobile or Web version. This problem usually manifests for me after an update or a reinstall (I just scrapped 6.14 beta 2 and reinstalled my last "favorite" version, 6.11). Anyway, my guess is that something breaks during the build of the Full Text Search index. I know how to locate the option to recreate the full text search index in the (hidden) Troubleshooting menu, but I find the process to be somewhat cryptic. For one thing, I don't know how long the "recreation" process is supposed to take. I have a lot of notes (upwards of 20,000) so I can appreciate that it'll take "some time," but... is it a ten-minute process? An hour? 24 hours? Do I need to leave the computer on overnight? Do I need to adjust the power management settings so it doesn't go to sleep? Will the Activity Log give me a sense as to when it is done? Also: how long should I wait before trying it anew? If I wait an hour and search still isn't working, should I just start over? And does that "undo" the work that I've already done? And at what point do I need to stop relying on this particular tool and instead scrape everything and just reinstall, hoping for a correct search indexing from a new installation? I've posted some of these questions before in other threads, but thought it might warrant a standalone thread, especially if others needed help with this arcane command.
  2. Hi! I'm not new to Evernote, but new to the forum, and new to AppleScripts. I am seeing AppleScripts could be quite powerful in helping me automate a couple of my more routine work flows. I have managed to get an AppleScript running to assign and unassign tags to a note, and to move it to a new notebook. However, what I'd like to do now is to set the reminder on a given note to 'Tomorrow' as a part of the AppleScript. Here's my current AppleScript - And here's the output I'm getting when I run it - I have read several other threads where people describe a similar problem. However, having gleaned all I can from those threads (and a number of other spots on the internet), I can't quite crack this one. To the point where I'm not sure if this is even possible...? I note that the formatting of the date in the error message is a bit odd. And perhaps this is causing an issue. However, I can't see any obvious way to get AppleScript to output the date in any other formats. (Besides some hideous hacks that manually assemble a date string - but seems like it should be easier.) I have played around with as date, as string, as text, but none of them seem to help. I have tried applying the date directly as (current date), or calculating the myRemind variable as per the above and the message basically remains the same. I also played around with setting 'reminder time' vs. 'reminder order', but also no luck. And tried changing the 'modification date' field to see if that made a difference. And also trying 'date string' to get only the day part of it, and not the time. But none of those paths seemed to win. I feel like I'm close above, but missing some small point. And would welcome any suggestions, links (with working part or whole solutions), and/or some better documentation of the expected date format on the one hand, and how to get that from (current date) on the other. Some configuration infomration - OS X 10.11.5, and Evernote 6.6.1. Thanks for any suggestions you can offer. George
  3. It's great to have Evernote integrated with Spotlight (I understand this can be quite a struggle to get set up properly in OS X). Here is how I think the integration could be improved: 1. Preview is too small in the Spotlight window, only shows a couple of words and isn't scrollable. 2. Notes bring up the Evernote window when you click on them in Spotlight. When I do lots of Spotlight searches and just want the note windows opening up, it's a chore to close the Evernote window every time.
  4. The Notes/Reminder toolbar takes up space. I'd like the option to turn it off.
  5. I would like to make the following feature request, the ability to view and edit the Evernote markup of a note. As you can see from the attached example, I was recently doing some research on Node.js and storing that information within Evernote. When I copy and paste information from various sources, I find indentation and other formatting can be hard to re-format. In the attached example, you can see this with the first code snippet which is indented. I had no way to adjust this indenting, even though the rest of the formatting looked great. Another example can be seen in the white on grey reversed text. I could not find a way in Evernote to remove this grey background and easily reformat this text. Of course, I could have pasted this is with "Paste and Match Style" but I wanted to retain most of the look (as in the code examples) but just apply some tweaking. As an alternative, maybe you could consider an option we see in applications such as Microsoft Word, which allow Copy Formatting via a paintbrush style tool. This formatting can then be applied to other areas of the document? Thank you for the consideration of this feature request. I am a huge Evernote fan as Premium subscriber. I would love to do a testimonial for you if that would ever be appropriate. All the best, Greg Paskal
  6. Just discovered that once you've installed the new Photos Application, you can no longer drag and drop photos saved via iPhoto or Photos directly into a note in Evernote. I attempted to drag two photos from the app into a previously created note, but there's no addition. I can use the share button to add them to Evernote, they'll just have to be in a new note.
  7. Recent premium user after using evernote free for 4 years and just ran into this issue where I used the evernote app for OSX and created a fairly lengthy note full of bulleted lists with varying degrees of indentation in sub-headings. All looked good and formatted to my liking, but as soon as I opened this note in the web browser (from a Linux machine where there is no evernote app) the whole indentation levels were lost. It went from something like: foo bar baz za za gabor to foo bar baz za za gabor Hoping there is a solution or workaround for this as a new premium user (less than a week) I am terribly unhappy and bitter that this simple issue is undermining the simplest usecase I had for evernote which motivated me to pay.
  8. Ridiculously simple feature that makes ALL the difference when reading notes on phone. It's insane how fundamental this is, yet Evernote has not included this. It's in every other editor except Evernote. Like I stated in the title, this has been requested six years ago. You're about to lose a customer over a ridiculously small problem. If I don't see this in the next update I'm switching to any other app, the reason being 100% just because I need adjustable line spacing. Simpler than simple solution to a substantial problem.
  9. When annotating a PDF that is embedded in a note, the highlight option only provides access to free-hand highlighting. This results in messy highlights and doesn't really fulfill the needs of the tool. Is there any way to simply highlight text that has been selected?

    Mac 7.6 Beta 1

    DARK MODE is here If you are on macOS Mojave, you will be able to enable Dark Mode. There is a known issue with Drag and Drop, but it will be fixed in the next Beta build. To download the beta, go HERE
  11. Hi guys:) Where can I download Evernote for OS X EL CAPITAN 10.11.6? I find only for 10.12 Thank you!
  12. I have a notebook that is full of simplified articles that I've saved through the web clipper, and which I need to read and annotate for work. I want to export them all as PDFs. I've highlighted them all and gone to File > Print Notes, and used the system dialogue to select SAVE AS PDF, but the resulting PDFs are all "untitled.pdf" instead of each one being "[note title].pdf." This seems like an OBVIOUS bug. This isn't an OS-mandated behavior, because, using the same print dialogue, I can save PDFs that preserve the original file name from Word documents and that use the title of a Chrome tab as the PDF filename. Given how many of these articles there are, and given how many I will need to repeat this process with in the future, I am not interested in printing and manually renaming each note individually. Anyone else able to replicate this problem, either with a single note or a bunch of notes? And any known solutions? And if not, any other web clipper tools that do as good a job of simplifying articles like Evernote but have more predictable PDF printing behavior? I'm running Evernote 7.0.3 on MacOS 10.13.3.
  13. Hi there, I hope someone could help me on this. Strangely on this forum, I was not able to 'search' for formatting, simply because I don't see a 'search' dialog box. Only the 'Google site search' is available. Anyway, after typing in 40 lines of texts, they look like a big chunk of cake. Can someone please direct me on how to space them out between paragraphs, especially after the 'hard enters'? I have attached a screenshot. Thank you. Nick
  14. since upgrading to 7.0.1. I can no longer show only current reminders (instead of the complete reminder list) on top of the note list. the option to do so exists in the reminders menu, it's just broken. would be really helpful if the basics kept working after these upgrades - continuously (re-)introducing bugs with upgrades (e.g. blank list view) is pretty annoying and a sign of issues with quality management.
  15. With the latest update, I am no longer able to create a global shortcut (I used CMD o) to open note in a new window. Also the shortcut cmd+L used to bring you to the note title and highlight the current title, so you could just start typing. Now it brings you to the end of the current title, so you still end up using the mouse to highlight. Lastly, when I move one note to a new notebook, the next note inline needs to be clicked on before I can start using shortcut keys (this didn't need to happen in the last version). In general, I am very frustrated by this new version and wish I still had the last version of evernote.

    Mac 7.6 Beta 2

    Hello Beta testers, Evernote for Mac 7.6 Beta 2 is now available. You can download it here. This release is mainly focused on crashes and dark mode refinements. Please keep the feedback coming our way. Enjoy! 7.6 Beta 2 Improvements: Dark Mode refinement in many areas of the application Note canvas enables dark mode automatically based on System Preferences settings, but you still have the option to overwrite it in Evernote's preferences. Now you can export notes again by dragging them out of the note list. Known issues: Title field is showing a darker shade background color for Mojave users in light mode. Contextual menu shows "EnApplicationServiceMenuItemTitle" instead of "Add to Evernote" Quick switcher still needs some dark mode tweaks
  17. When annotating a PDF in Evernote 6.9, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to continue annotating a PDF that was previously annotated. Is anyone else seeing this problem?
  18. Hi, I've been desperately trawling google and haven't seen anyone else having this problem, some insight into what I'm doing wrong would be great! So I have a notebook with a series of notes in order, and when I am editing one, every now and then it will suddenly jump so I am abruptly viewing the first one in the list no matter which one I am editing. This was annoying in itself but today I noticed that the first note in the list has since been overwritten to have the same content as the note I was editing yesterday. And it is only half filled, as if it were overwritten with the content that was on the other note at the point in time at which I was editing it. How do I stop Evernote doing this? It's ruined a note I worked very hard on, and I don't think I can recover the lost work.
  19. Spacing is really important to me, so my notes don't look to visually clustered. So I double space a lot between my notes sometimes, almost like in poetry. For some reason, whenever my evernote syncs, the double spacing I had between lines jumps and cramps so it is single line spacing again. I tried putting double spaces between my lines again, but it keeps jumping back to single line spacing when I sync. Please fix. - Daniel
  20. Hi everyone, Evernote just changed the shortcut to delete a note from DEL to CMD + DEL and it drives me nuts. For me it is a habit to use DEL in Evernote and I want to change the shortcut that it works in the old way. Does anyone know, if its possible and how to do it? Thanks, Nostranius
  21. As per this Microsoft post , it is impossible to add add-ins to Outlook for Mac if you are using IMAP accounts. So I cannot install the Evernote add in. (I have Outlook for Mac latest version 16.11 Office 365 subscription). I can forward emails to Evernote using my Evernote email address, but sometimes the formatting is lost/distorted - on some emails from Outlook, not all. The formatting issue may be related to tables embedded in the email. The emails become almost useless because of the lost formatting in Evernote. I have raised this issue with Evernote support, but it was never resolved. I was hoping the Evernote add in might make things work better, but of course, I cannot even install it. So frustrating, as the same email works perfectly and keeps its formatting when forwarded from Gmail, but loses it when forwarded from Outlook. So it is definitely some sort of Evernote-Outlook integration issue. I seem to be up against a wall on this one.
  22. I have been using without a hitch the Evernote add-in for Macs running Outlook 2016 as part of the MS 365 office suite. Following an installation of an outlook update (to version 15.26.1 (160916)) the Evernote add-in is no longer available. I have tried (a) deselecting then reselecting the Evernote add-in on the 365 website (b) disabling all other add-ins available via the 365 website (c )deleting the Evernote app on the MacBook Pro then installing the latest version of Evernote for Macs downloaded from the website. None of these have worked. Any ideas welcomed.
  23. [Edit 7/13: We've released a patch to address an issue users some users were encountering saving some images using the Evernote Helper & the "Save to Evernote" command in Safari. Link to mos up to date build has been updated below.] Hi All, Today we are releasing 7.2 GA! The release consists of a more robust handling of open attachments while editing externally, the option for auto download & install and numerous bugfixes, particularly in the areas of PDFs, sharing and UI. Out of app, we're trying a new release notes format that is generally more accessible. The release can be found here. ___ Evernote for Mac 7.2 GA Release Notes New: • You now can automatically download and install all updates. That’s one less thing to take care of. • While editing an attachment in an outside program, you might have lost all your work if the note got deleted in a crash. Now, you will get a prompt to save these changes to a new note, rescuing your hard work. Fixed: • Sometimes it would all come crashing down when PDFs were annotated, but no more. • Now and then, nested tags would collapse when they weren’t supposed to, which was slightly embarrassing. • When you merged notes and synced, the notes’ images, PDFs, or audio didn’t always come along for the ride. • If you removed a notebook from your shortcuts, sometimes the notebook would no longer be displayed anywhere, as if it mysteriously disappeared altogether. • Drag and drop was sometimes interfering with copy and paste, causing copied content to not paste correctly. Can’t we all just get along? • When you shared a note through iMessage, sometimes it only shared the title instead of the entire note, which wasn’t particularly useful. • Sometimes you put a URL in a note and then the content wouldn’t load, which was a bummer. • When you added an image, rotated it, and then had a change of heart and hit undo, you somehow lost everything in your note. This was, admittedly, a bit of an overreaction. • If you didn’t have the ‘Show Notes in Groups’ sort option checked off, then you were unable to see the title of the note at the top of the list in Snippet View. A very specific wrong that has now been righted. Evernote Business updates: • You’ll see more relevant search results, thanks to some work we did under the hood. • The member list for a space sometimes showed blank users, which was a little spooky, but it’s all resolved now. • The widgets in a space were displaying an ‘unable to load’ message, which you very reasonably did not want to see. But it’s now a thing of the past.
  24. hey to all! Wondering how can i change default hot keys for Skitch especially Crosshair Snapshot? I'm using Box app which have same shortcut for video capturing so both running same time.. And i can't find how to change it in both Thanks!
  25. Hello! When I opened my Evernote app today I had a tiny seizure as all my notes were gone! The notebooks were all there but they all showed '0 notes'. The same for iPad version and website version. But then I saw they were in the trash can. I am very sure I did not delete all my notes at once, so how did this happen? Does anyone else have this problem? Does it occur regularly? Luckily, you can restore the notes all at once, tags in tact and all. But still, a strange and very unpleasant surprise at first! - Kaatje
