  1. I've got 400+ notes in Apple Mail.app. What's the easiest way to import these into Evernote? I tried the Import... feature, but this wouldn't let me select my notes mailbox, even after I tried to Archive the Notes mailbox. Thanks!
  2. I currently have a simple embedded AppleScript in Hazel to move a select PDF file to a new Evernote note (below). How would I go about adding the file to a specific notebook? Currently the new note is sent my default folder "@Inbox". tell application "Evernote" activate create note from file theFile end tell Thanks in advance
  3. Instead of hijacking other discussions, I am using this discussion to discuss general scripting on a Mac Evernote/Mac has a scripting layer built in to the app. This feature is accessed using AppleScript with the app Script Editor. There's documentation at https://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/applescript.php and the Script Editor displays a dictionary for each app Table of Contents Storage and Menu for accessing scripts Script: Identify the Note OS File Folder

    Dates & Authors

    A 3-in-one: 1. The new app Agenda (not to be confused with the old Lotus Agenda) is getting rave reviews simply because it allows attaching a note to a calendar event. Evernote needs this. 2. The Web Clipper really should try harder to glean the name of the author when you clip an article or post. In most cases, it ain't that hard. Sure, it may not always get it right, but it would be a lot better than sticking MY name in the field! You could even insert something like "(auto-detected)" after the author's name if you weren't sure you had it right. 3. Last I checked, some items of information about a note (such as, IIRC, author) were not accessible from AppleScript for no apparent reason. Could you please fix this?
  5. EN Mac AppleScript to Create Internet Location File (inetloc) for EN Note I have just uploaded my AppleScript to: Create Internet Location File from EN Note -- GitHub Gist An Internet Location File is the type of file you get when you drag/drop the URL from your Browser's Address bar onto a Mac Finder folder. A simple double-click on that file opens the web page in your Browser. In this case, a simple double-click opens your EN Note in an Evernote Mac Note window. Please feel free to post below any questions, issues, and/or suggestions that you have about this.
  6. BUG: Create New Tag with AppleScript Does Not Set Parent Property Using the AppleScript code provided by Evernote at Mac Wrangle Evernote with AppleScript, creating (making) a new tag with the Parent property does not work correctly. The tag is created, but the Parent property is not set. I think this is caused by creating the Parent tag and the Child tag in the same AppleScript session. Apparently when the Child tag is created, the reference to the Parent tag is not really available yet. In the code below, the "AppleScriptTag1" is the Parent tag, and "AppleScriptTag2" is the Child tag. Steps to Reproduce: Run this code (provided by Evernote) Screenshot of EN Mac 6.3 Tag view after running script:
  7. Im trying to clip some pages to notes with AppleScript. Sample code here : tell application "Evernote" create note from url "http://www.dapenti.com/blog/more.asp?name=xilei&id=126913" create note from url "http://www.jianshu.com/p/fb97b21aeb1d" end tell then I get a note with messy code and a good note. I notice the first url's http response header "Content-Type:text/html" and in its html tag <meta http-equiv='content-type' content='text/html; charset=gb2312' /> the second url's http response header "Content-Type:text/html; charset=utf-8" and tag <meta charset="utf-8"> Maybe when the evernote applescript api can't detect charset from http header, it use some default value like 'utf-8', that make the note messy code. Is there any resolution now? Maybe detect charset from html tag? or provide an extra parameter "charset" to "create note from url" api ? (Chrome Evernote Clipper extension doing the job pretty good)
  8. I've just found an applescript which helps creating a new note by choosing a templete note from the notebook "Template" preset and it works pretty well. However, I'm wondering if anyone knows how to add a command in the script so that the new note can be created directly to a particular notebook (and even with tags preset if possible) ? Thank you! The "template-to-new-note" applescript I got is this one: http://blog.nik.me/post/32694120684/evernote-create-new-note-from-template

    Applescript Help

    I have a lot of notes that come into Evernote from various automatic sources (drops into a specific folder, IFTTT, etc.) I'd like the bone of an Applescript that would help me organize this mess, all of which piles up in my inbox. Most of these automatic things are arranged to put specific tags on notes as they are created. I would like to create a Applescript that will search all my notes, find ones tagged with a particular tag, the rename that note with a title and a modified version of the note creation date. Finally I'd like the original tag deleted and new ones applied and have it moved into a specific folder. I know how to do a lot of that, but some things (like parsing out the creation date and reformatting it) it beyond me. Can anybody help with this?
  10. So after having heard about it several times but never finding time to delve further into it, I finally signed up for FileThis (http://filethis.com) and connected several of my accounts to be automatically imported to Evernote. I was blown away by how straightforward the process was. It brought in the backlog of statements from my banks, credit cards, utilities, health insurance, and even Amazon.com orders, and will continue to do so automatically moving forward (by default, in the free tier, once per week.) The one major issue I had was that the creation/modified dates of the notes that were created were the date/time of the import into Evernote, not the dates of the statements themselves. The problem was exacerbated by the fact that many of the statements did not seem to be imported in chronological order (so, for instance, a statement from Dec 2012 appeared near the top of the list, while Mar 2014 was rather toward the bottom) and it seemed to be rather random. Not a huge deal for Premium subscribers, since they're searchable, but an annoyance nonetheless. After noticing that all of the PDF attachments were similarly formatted in their filenames, all including a YYYY-MM-DD format date, I wrote an AppleScript that went through and updated all of the create/modified dates of the FileThis-created notes to mirror the dates in the filenames. In order to make it flexible, I did use regular expressions, so you may need to download and install the Satimage osax extension (http://www.satimage.fr/software/downloads/Satimage392.pkg) in order to enable this capability. After that it's really quite straightforward. Including code here, since attaching AppleScript files is disallowed: tell application "Evernote" set statements to find notes ("tag:FileThis") repeat with statement in statements set att to attachment 1 of statement set fname to filename of att set datestring to find text "[0-9]{4}-[0-9]{2}-[0-9]{2}" in fname with regexp and string result set yyyy to text 1 thru 4 of datestring set mm to text 6 thru 7 of datestring set dd to text 9 thru 10 of datestring set new_date to my date (mm & "/" & dd & "/" & yyyy & " 12:00:00 AM" as string) set creation date of statement to new_date set modification date of statement to new_date end repeatend tellSave into a file (e.g., EN-filethis-fixdate.applescript) and then it can be run from the terminal like so: osascript EN-filethis-fixdate.applescriptThis will update the information directly in your local application, which will then be synced to the cloud and across all of your devices. And your list ordering will be sane again, and your OCD can rest.

    script EN titles to PDFs?

    Hello, I have about 500 EN notes each containing a pdf. I would like to rename the pdf file with the title of the EN note. Is there a way to script this, or another way besides doing it by hand? thank you Joe
  12. Hello. First time posting. So I have been teaching myself web design & development, and using Evernote to keep notes on various languages and frameworks. These notes have, of course, code snippets, mostly that I copy in or type out by hand (for example, as I watch a video on Code School). These are interspersed with my explanations and comments. So I am typing my note in the default font, Helvetica Neue, and then going back through and changing the code snippets to Courier New. I know I can go and put my snippets into some code formatter web app and paste them back in, but for my purposes all I really want is for snippets to be a different font. And I want to avoid the hassle of selecting the snippet and going through the font dropdown every time. I was wondering if there was a way to do this. I have been fiddling with AppleScript, trying to make a Service that I could then bind to a keyboard shortcut, but Evernote doesn't seem to allow access to the actual content of notes from AppleScript. Right now I'm trying to save the note HTML content to a variable and then add a font tag to lines that start with a certain character, but I was just introduced to AppleScript today so I don't really know what I'm doing. Here's the lame attempt I have so far: property noteHtml : "" property addOn : "<br><br><hr><br><br>" tell application "Evernote" activate set note1 to selection set noteHtml to (HTML content of note1) set addString to "<br>" if {noteHtml starts with "<p>"} then set editHtml to ? set noteHtml to editHtml end if end tell Can anyone offer any tips or a solution? Thanks.
  13. EN Mac AppleScript to Add Prefix or Suffix to Note Title In response to another topic, I have written and published on GitHub Gist this AppleScript: Add Prefix or Suffix to Selected Note Titles If you have any comments, issues, and/or suggestions, please post them here. The Gist does not provide any notifications.
  14. This topic seems to be closed now, but I just made an update to the script I posted. Here is my revised script: Script to List All Tags in EN Mac Account ### UPDATED 2017-03-20 7:57 PM CT ### use AppleScript version "2.4" -- Yosemite (10.10) or later use scripting additions --————————————— tell application "Evernote" --————————————— --- GET LIST OF ALL TAG OBJECTS IN EN ACCOUNT --- -- Each Tag Object has: -- name -- Text name of Tag -- parent -- Parent Tag Object set tagList to tags --- GET NUMBER OF TAGS --- set numTags to count of tagList --- GET LIST OF TAG NAMES --- set tagNameList to name of every tag end tell
  15. Here's an Applescript you can use to back up all your notes into individual .enex notebook files. Only have 6.0.5 Direct Download version, so I can confirm that it works on that version (both on Yosemite and Mavericks). Be sure to set your osx username and that you set a valid path. with timeout of (30 * 60) seconds tell application "Evernote" activate set myFolder to "/Users/USERNAME/Desktop/EvernoteBackup/" -- path to backup folder delay 7 -- need some time for EN to launch if it's not already running. Raise number if needed. set myNotebooks to every notebook repeat with selectedNoteBook in myNotebooks set theNotebook to (the name of selectedNoteBook) set theNotes to every note in notebook theNotebook set myFile to (myFolder & theNotebook & ".enex") export theNotes to myFile end repeat end tell end timeout
  16. Right now I’m using a Mac app called Unclutter that I use to quickly create txt files in a specific folder. I run the following script to turn those files into individual notes in Evernote: But what I’d like to do is to amend the script so that it gets the text from the file, and appends it to a specific note, so that I ultimately only have one note in Evernote. Anybody know how to do this?

    Script to Search + Copy

    I want to automatically extract any text between two specific subheaders (say ***** and !!!!!) from all notes in a notebook into a single note every week. Has anyone ever written a script to search for and copy/export parts of notes? Any thoughts on how it could be done? Thanks!
  18. I have written an AppleScript to create & paste a hyperlink using any protocol into Evernote. See SCRIPT: Create & Paste Rich Text Hyperlink for any URL Protocol Ver 1.0.1 This script is now maintained in my GitHub Gist: https://gist.github.com/JMichaelTX This script was created primarily for Evernote Mac users who need to create a hyperlink for non-standard protocols. EN Mac only allows "http://" and "file://", while the Mac OSX will support any URL Scheme/Protocol that has a supporting/responding app installed. Note that this script creates the hyperlink that is stored in EN Mac Note (or any other rich text app), even if no app has been installed to support the protocol. This is the first version, and I have given it only limited testing under Yosemite 10.10.5. Although I'm reusing a lot of existing code, there could be, and probably are, some bugs. So proceed carefully, and if you find any bugs please post here, or PM me. It should work very much like the built-in "Add Link" (CMD-K) function. Just select the text you want to add a link to, and run the script. I use FastScripts to assign a shortcut key. The one downside is that when the created link is pasted back into your Note it will overwrite the formatting of the selected text. But at the top of the script you can set the font & size you prefer. Default is Verdana 14pt. Installation and usage instructions are in the header comments of the script. If you decide to try the script, please let me know how it goes, and if you find any bugs, or have any suggestions for improvements.
  19. Up until a couple of weeks ago I have been using for a long time Hazel and an applescript to automatically add files that are added to a specific folder on my computer to Evernote. When it added the note to Evernote it would add it to a specific notebook and assign specific tags. It worked fine for a past couple of years. For the past couple of weeks the script has been working fine except that it no longer assigns the tags. It adds the note to evernote and puts it in the correct notebook but does not assign the tag. Any idea why this has started happening and how I can fix it? The applescript I use is: tell application "Evernote" activate create note from file theFile notebook {"Notebook1"} tags {"Tag 1", "Tag 2"} end tell
  20. I wanted to append html with applescript with some inline css: <div style=\"text-align:center;\"> <hr style=\"float:left;margin-left:auto;margin-right:auto;width:40%;\"> TEXT <hr style=\"float:right;margin-left:auto;margin-right:auto;width:40%;\"> </div> My note looks like this though: <div style="text-align:center;"> <hr style="float:left;"/> TEXT <hr style="float:right;"/> </div> Are some of these tags not allowed?
  21. I want to check if a note with a given name already exists: tell application "Evernote" if note named thisTitle exists then tell note named thisTitle to append html "<strong>exists</strong>" else set note1 to create note title thisTitle with text thisContent as string notebook "DAILY" assign tag "PDF" to note1 end if end tell But it gives me error: Evernote got an error: Can’t get note "[thisTitle]" How do i check if a note exists?

    mac Applescript to Add Tags

    I've just started playing with applescript in evernote. Granted applescript has it's oddities, but it seems more pronounced in evernote. What I am trying to do is create an applescript which will go through all the notes in my InBox (default notebook) and add tags based on their contents. For example, if the note has the word receipt in it, I'd like to add the receipt tag. Before I pull my hair out I thought I'd see if anyone has written a script like this that they would be willing to share.
  23. I can add tags to a note with the script below, but how do I change the title of the note? tell application "Evernote" assign tag "Outlook" to currentNote end tell
  24. I wrote an apple script that iterates over rows in a spreadsheet, finds the appropriate notebook and note, and auto-files the formatted information from the row at the top of the note to create an organized log. One piece of information I am trying to capture is the web link to an external source (say, the information is a short synopsis of an interesting Wall Street Journal article). The piece that is currently non-functioning is the hyperlink. It appears as a hyperlink, but includes the evernotecid in the link and so it won't go to the page when clicked. The output looks something like the attached; the link is live, but rather than it taking you straight to the right page http://www.bmj.com/content/352/bmj.i1102 it is linked with the evernotecid in front (e.g. evernotecid://[specificnoteblahblah]http://www.bmj.com/content/352/bmj.i1102) Any ideas as to why the link is including the evernotecid and how to prevent that so the link goes straight to the source? [NOTE: if I just enter the link directly, evernote automatically creates it as a hyperlink and is clickable. I'm specifically looking to solve the issue so I don't have to show the full link and instead can simply link readable text] As reference, Using 6.6 on Mac; Evernote business Thank you!
  25. 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
