  1. Hello everyone! I’ve been a Evernote user for many years. I have a setup that automatically sends all my important emails, account statements and email receipts to my Evernote account. I also scan ALL my letters into Evernote using my ScanSnap scanner. While most of my workflow has been automated, once it gets into Evernote, I’ll need to manually sort and organise all the paper mail and emails in a strictly adhered to tagging system. I used to spend a 1-2 hours every month sorting out my inbox notebook on Evernote. I looked for a rule based sorting system. Found a few but none of them were reliable enough for me to adopt. I even hired a VA to help me sort my Evernote account for a while. But that didn’t work as well as I hoped. Hence I created http://Autocron.co. For the last few months, my Evernote workflow has been running automatically. An example automated work flow is attached as an image in this post. The web-based app is currently in beta stage and I’m opening up invites to a select few users to help me out some real-life load on the server before I move the development into its next phase. Being in development stage, there are bound to be some bugs. But as a beta user, you'll have the privilege in shaping the future of the App. If you’ll like access to AutoCron.co, please following the following link! AutoCron.co
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. Hi, I'd like to suggest that EN be able to extract itinerary information from notes and create reminders automatically based on time and/or location from them. As it is, Gmail has this feature but it only works on air travel and hotels. There are some Android apps out there that do this too, such as App in the Air. However, other details such as airport transfers, train tickets, tour confirmations, spa confirmations, (and the like) are not captured. I have recently downgraded back to Basic because i dont find much value to justify the expense. I think if EN could do the above, it would be worth subscribing again. thanks, steve

    Safari Automatically archive webpages

    Everybody, I am looking for old automated process to automatically clip via the Evernote extension every single webpage I browse. Would like to do this in the background if possible. I have attached a link to a piece of software that does something similar but not with Evernote. http://www.proxy-offline-browser.com https://github.com/ludios/grab-site I know it sounds crazy but I frequently need to access previously archived webpages of sites that I have visited and it is cumbersome for me to clip each page manually.
  6. I'm trying to get my archive of saved links in Facebook into Evernote as well as new links that I want to read later, but not publicly share. I like to use IFTTT to automate things when I can, but it doesn't have a trigger for Fb's saved links. So, I figured out a work around: In Facebook, create a new Page, in the setup: choose any category, name the page as something like "My links", skip through the remaining questions except those that are required. Once the page is made, go to Settings and Unpublish the Page. This will make it so that only you (or other people you add as Admins) can see what is on the page. In IFTTT, create a recipe that triggers with a new post to a Fb Page, and sends the link to En: https://ifttt.com/view_embed_recipe/283889-share-a-link-on-a-fb-page-and-send-it-to-evernote Share new posts, or old ones in the Fb Saved Link page, to your new Page.
  7. 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:
  8. Is there a way (and if there isn't could you please feed this into your new features requests queue) to automate sorting of notes that land up in the default notebook into other notebooks according to title, tags and content. Please note that I am aware of the features of being able to put notebook names and tags in the subject line of an email and these are NOT suitable for my situation. I am also aware of IFTTT but cannot find any recipies that do what I need to do. At work I am working on anythign from 3 to 10 projects at a time. Each project has a unique 6 digit code. Whenever I send an email relating to a project I put the project code at the start of the subject line. I am gradually training my co-workers to do the same. In Outlook 2010, our corporate mail client, I have rules set up to put any mail with the project code in the subject line into a matching category, for mails from co-workers who don't yet put the project code in the subject line (now few in number) I manually add the category. This means that if I want to find all the emails to do with, say, project 104985 I just have to filter by category to category 104985. Now I'm using Evernote more I'd liek to set these rules to forward project emails to my Evernote email address. Unfortunately Outlook doesn't support adding to subject lines when you forward with a rule so I can't specify the notebook name in the subject line. Ideally what I'd like to be able to do is set up a macro of some kind that will periodically scan through my default notebook and apply sorting rules to each item. As a minimum simple rules like "If the title of a note contains the string '104985' then move it to the '104985 do the thing at the place' notebook" and the ability to set priority of rules (simple move up or down a list and execute in the order of the list, once a note has triggered a rule the rest of the rules aren't executed for that note). Ideally also be able to call other rules from within a rule and have them execute so the above rule may call a rule that is something like "If any line in the body of the mail contains the strings 'From: *John Williams*' or 'To: *John Williams*' or 'CC: *John Williams*' (where * is, in common with many systems/applications, a wildcard for 0 or more characters) then add the tag 'Half a Job'".
  9. I had the need to create 4000 notes based on excel data because tagging system in Evernote makes search way more easier than excel. Also with Evernote I could create many Table of contents based on my needs. My excel data was well formatted - each row was going to one unique note. After searching through this forum I realized that may it is impossible to do and I decided to copy painfully one note at a time. Then IDEA!!!! came What if I create a note in Evernote, export evernote file (.enex) Open in notepad and view xml code Find out of table structure and modify to my needs Use vba Macro to convert each row as one noteI found a gentleman (Anton Fishman) on internet who worked on similar problem before and he helped me achieve my goal. I can not attach excel here - but here is the link People with good XML knowledge can help clean up the VBA code a bit to get better table format, that would be great. Remember to change the path to your liking strFile = "C:\Users\1.enex" I created my 4000 notes with required tags with click of a button, it took more time to Sync across devices than to create it. It will create one big .enex file but when you import in windows or Mac machines with File-> import, it will create all notes for you. I would appreciate people's feedback
  10. I like to use Evernote for making notes during meetings and calls, and have a particular note format that I like. I wanted a way to automate the creation of new notes from Outlook that included inserting a title and date/time stamp, but also including the formatting of a note template. I don't know if this is crazy or not, as one could argue you could just go into Evernote and create a new note and make a few changes. Being a Office VBA person I tried this with an Outlook VBA macro but could not get that to work using the native Evernote Windows SDK. I find it unbelieveable that there were no real working examples of VBA code creating notes...sorry for digressing. After doing research I came across a post about using using the Evernote "enscript.exe" program to import notes that would preserve the formatting and tagging info that was stored with the exported note. To use this effectively I had to come up with a way to customize the file that I was importing with a specific title and date/time stamp. Having some Powershell script experience, I figured out a fairly straightforward way to do this that has possibilities for much more customization. The solution was a short Outlook VBA macro that calls a Powershell script - both components that are available with every install of MS Office/Windows. I've documented this as best I can - both in the macro and script. Sorry if this is too much detail. This assumes some Evernote, VBA and Powershell knowledge - use this script at your own risk. I'm not including instructions how to program in VBA and Powershell, so Google this if you need help. To utilize this, you should do the following - if you want to use it as is then just install the macros and Powershell script and run as is. If you want to customize, then do the following: In Evernote, create a note that contains the tagging and proper formatting you want with bullets, lines, etc. When you define this keep in mind where you want to customize each newly created note. In my case I wanted a custom title and a subheading that was in bold font followed by a list of indented bullets. Yours can be whatever you want. Save this note and then export it to a .enex file. Open this .enex file with a text editor and do the following: In order to get a correct created and updated dates on the imported note, you must delete the xml fields that contain the "created" and "updated" field info. This link contains the instructions on how to do this. Change the text in the "title" field to a unique string - mine was "title_template", see the text below - so that in the Powershell script later we can do a find/replace. Change the text "subject_template" in the "en-note" section to a unique string - mine was "subject_template", see the text below - so that in the Powershell script later we can do a find/replace. Save and close the .enex xml file. Here's the resulting .enex xml file - <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE en-export SYSTEM "http://xml.evernote.com/pub/evernote-export2.dtd"> <en-export export-date="20171025T221620Z" application="Evernote/Windows" version="6.x"> <note> <title>title_template</title> <content><![CDATA[<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE en-note SYSTEM "http://xml.evernote.com/pub/enml2.dtd"> <en-note><div><hr/><div><span style="font-family: &apos;Lucida Sans Unicode&apos;; font-weight: bold;">subject_template</span></div><div><ul><li><br/></li><li><br/></li></ul></div></div><div><hr/></div><div><br/></div></en-note>]]></content> <tag>!import</tag> <note-attributes> <author>YOUR NAME</author> <source>desktop.win</source> <source-application>evernote.win32</source-application> </note-attributes> </note> </en-export> Here's what the raw template looks like if imported into Evernote - you can see the words "title_template" in the title bar, and "subject_template" in the subheading under the horizontal line. In Outlook, paste the "create_evernote_note" macro code shown below into a module in your Outlook VBA project. You must customize the variable CPWSScript to include the location where you are storing your Powershell script (mine is in a Dropbox folder). You should create a button on your menu bar to make it easy to execute - see this for how to do that. Public Sub create_evernote_note() '________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ ' using a evernote .enex template, create a note in the instor notebook ' Do most of the heavy lifting by calling Powershell script that imports ' a note, adds custom data to it, and stores it in the desired notebook. '________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ '________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ ' Declare variable with name and location of the powershell script to run.

Again I'm assuming you know how to use Powershell to do this. Change the path and file name of the first 2 variables below suited to your location (mine was in a Box subfolder. The join-path statement concatenates the home directory path to the front of the final name. In this case that would be "C:\users\USER", plus the Box folder. Your location will vary - you can eliminate the join-path statement and just put the full path and file name directly in the assignment of the variable. "$master_evernote_note_template" is the .enex file that you exported that has all your desired formatting and tagging, plus the keywords you are going to use to search and replace. "$temp_evernote_note_template" is the name of the file we are creating when we copy this master template - this is so we can edit the copy of the file, not the master. We'll delete this copy when we are done with the script. [string]$master_evernote_note_template = join-path $home ("\box\stuff\master_import_evernote_note.enex") [string]$temp_evernote_note_template = join-path $home ("\box\stuff\temp_import_evernote_note.enex") The 3rd variable you must change is "$evernote_notebook" - this is the notebook that the imported note will be saved to. [string]$evernote_notebook = "instor" If you want to use the template as-is, you are done. If not, you can customize Powershell script by changing the "-replace" statements with a different find/replace combo. Remember you must have unique strings in the export .enex file so it find do the find/replace. To create a note, invoke the macro from Outlook via a button on the menu bar or from the VBE editor The script runs in seconds, and here's what the resulting note looks like - notice default notebook, tagging, and formatting: Here's the final Powershell code with comments - enjoy - comments encouraged. I don't know if this is crazy or not... <#____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ .DESCRIPTION This script runs creates a new Evernote note by using the import function of the "enscript.exe" module provided as part of the standard Evernote install on Windowws. You must create a Evernote note template that will be used for the import. You do this by exporting a note that will serve as your template (do this from the Evernote menu). An example note template is provided as part of the forum post. The flow of the entire process is as follows: Execute Outlook VBA macro to prompt for title of new note Outlook VBA takes title as input from user, passes it to a Powershell script as a parameter (this script) This script takes the input parameter and does the following: Checks for existence of a temp file created during this script, and deletes it if found Makes a copy of the master note template to a temp copy of the file so it can edit the temp copy Creates a string variable containing the date in the "0800 10 Oct 2017" format Opens the temp XML file and uses the Powershell "-replace" command to replace the title and subject keywords, then writes the changes back to disk Takes the title passed from the Outlook VBA macro and Runs the "enscript.exe" program to import the temp xml note just modifiedand puts it into the specified notebook Deletes the temp XML file we created before By using an imported note, you don't have to worry about the formatting and tagging. You can add more fields to the template by editing the master template XML and adding more field names than can be updated using the Powershell "-replace" command. If you want to do this do this, you'll need to prompt for more inputs (i.e. subject, attendees, etc) on the Outlook VBA part of this automation, and pass more parameters to Powershell script. One thing you must do - these are instructions completely borrowed from this post - http://www.thoughtasylum.com/blog/2010/3/14/an-improved-template-system-for-evernote.html, go into the note you exported to the .enex format (edit with Notepad) and remove the data in the "<created>" and "<modified> tags, otherwise your note will show the wrong create date. Here's where you do that: When you export a file as an ENEX file for use as a template, open it up in your favourite text editor (e.g. Windows notepad). Search through the file for two sets of tags "<created>" and "<updated>". In the template this follows just after the "</content>". Once you have found these tags, delete the tags and any data contained within (e.g. <created>20100310T175541Z</created><updated>20100312T194829Z</updated>). Once you have done this save and close the file. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ #> param([Parameter(Mandatory=$True,Position=0)][string]$title) <# __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ CONFIGURATION VARIABLES - FILE LOCATIONS ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ #> [string]$evernote_path = (split-path (Get-ItemProperty -Path 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\evernote.exe').'(default)' -Parent) + "\enscript.exe" # location of evernote enscript.exe executable [string]$master_evernote_note_template = join-path $home ("\box\andre_stuff\master_import_evernote_note.enex") # Location of "master" xml file - make copy of this [string]$temp_evernote_note_template = join-path $home ("\box\andre_stuff\temp_import_evernote_note.enex") # name of the copy, will edit this one [string]$evernote_notebook = "instor" # specify which notebook to store into <# __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Check that there is not an old copy of the temp file we are creating hanging around.

  11. Is it possible? I know about IFTTT.com. It can create a note at a specific time every day, however I have to rename it later, since IFTTT doesn't offer a choice (it's "13th of November, 2014" style). Any other possible not too technical solutions (Mac, Android)?

    Easy Automation

    I'd like an easy way to automate evernote. Example automations I'd like to write at things like: add a daily diary page with customizable content (like a list of things to do) when I create a note with tag "foo", create a second note with a title based on the original one etc. I've tried the evernote api but haven't been able to get Oauth to work (I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, but that stuff is seriously complicated). If the Evernote engine contained a python interpreter and a way to attach a script to a page so that it would be run on user-specifiable triggers (time of day, page open, page create, etc.), I think that would fill the bill.

    Parent tag automation

    Hello, I am using what I call "parent tagging". Here is an example of structure : Trips France Paris Nice Lyon Marseille Spain Barcelona Madrid Italy Milan I would like EverNote to add automatically the parent tag(s) when I add a children tag to a note. Of course, all the tags would not be concerned (I could select the concerned tag in an option menu). Example : I find a great restaurant in Paris, on internet. I add its info to a note and I tag it with "Paris. Then, EverNote would add automatically the tags "France" and "Trips" to my note. The example here, and the structure are simple. But when you have an architecture with 5+ layers, it's time saving ; and you are sure not to forget any tags. Then, it allows me to see what nice notes I have for my next trip in France, for example (by filtering with the "France" tag). -------- I know there are some automation tools, not developed by EverNote that exist on internet ; but I would like to have it as a native feature.
  14. Please could a rule-based automation workflow be built into Evernote The idea is to use Evernote's OCR ability to identify a situation like: - If a Cabinet of a certain name exists and to then take an action, - If a receipt or expense is identified then to take an action, - If a statement is identified then to take an action, Actions that could be performed are: - to apply a TAG, - to OCR again and identify data like Date, Vendor, Amount, Currency, - to OCR again and identify Statement Date, Vendor, Date Range of statement, - to move the note to a particular Cabinet, - ...
  15. I've made an AppleScript for creating a new note from a template. You can choose a template from a pop up list of template notes which are stored in a single template notebook. You can then choose where (in which existing notebook) to place the new note. Next you can enter a title for your new note. The script can insert a date/time stamp into your note. You can configure the name of the template notebook (default '_templates') and the value of the template tag (default 'template'). The new note can be configured to open in an existing EN window or in its own window. You can view the code here. The script is attached. I hope you'll find this script usefull. Please comment. evernote_new_note_from_template.scpt.zip

  18. I use the "Copy Note Link" under my GTD - like system and use the "Copy Link Note" on many notes. It would be helpful to have a keyboard shortcut for the "Copy Note Link" and avoid the right-click then scroll down menu process.
  19. Hi everyone, I'm really excited to announce an app we have been working extremely hard on for the last year! The app is called Tuskify and can be found at https://www.tuskify.com. Tuskify is currently in beta and is an integration with Evernote that allows you to automate the way you organize your notes. For example if you regularly move notes with all checkboxes complete to your "Done" notebook, we can do that automatically for you. Tuskify allows you to check your notes for specific conditions. These conditions are called "Triggers", and when they occur one or more "Actions" that you specify are performed. In the example above, the trigger is the checkboxes being set to complete and the action is moving the note to the "Done" notebook. The trigger and action above form a "recipe" and a recipe can contain multiple triggers and actions. We are currently looking for a number of beta testers before we go public with this. If you are interested please sign up for a free 7 day trial by visiting Tuskify. We want to make this the best it can be so we want to hear the good, the bad and the ugly, including the cunning ways you found to break it! You can get in touch with us by: - using the Support form - emailing us directly at support@tuskify.com - direct message on this forum - tweeting us @Tuskify We aim to reply to all communication within 2 days, but please keep in mind that further investigation may be required which could take longer. Please be assured that we will reply to everyone's comments. We're excited to hear what you think! N.B. Recipes are run against notes that you create or update. For example, if you add a recipe that looks for notes with the word "testing" in the title, any notes that you then create or update with "testing" in the title will be picked up by this recipe. Time-based recipes are the exception to the above. Rather than being triggered by a created or updated note, these recipes are triggered by the passing of time, such as a reminder on a note becoming due.
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. I developed a web-service which enables evernote users to automate there evernote. The application has three major features: Automatically adding parent tags from tag hierarchies Create rules to modify notes (change tags, move to notebook, organize reminders, share with friends, change title, ...) depending on configurable conditions, whenever notes are updated or created Export your reminders as *.ics file. These files could be subscribed or add to most common calendar applications. With this you can see all your evernote reminders in your calendar app. I'm looking for users for testing my service. You can start as beta tester via this link: filterize.net. Using this link, you can test the service for free until end of June. For feedback you can contact me via different channels. As I like my weekends and I'm also on a normal job you get response within 3 days for every feedback. But if it is not night in Germany you will get it much faster. ;-) Direct contact via email: beta@filterize.net Using personal message within this forum Feedback and feature request could be discussed on the filterize-facebook-page Bugs can be postet on the bug tracker I setup a newsletter for announcements I hope you enjoy the web-service. Start testing now! Update #1: We are in stable status now for standard accounts (Free, Plus, and Premium). Thanks a lot to all testers! Now, we are working on business accounts. If you are interested in testing for business, let me know. Best regards, Pascal Held
  23. Hi There are a few tools around already to help send email messages into Evernote. The basic idea is simple; if you are using Evernote as your GTD or task tracking system, you want an easy way to throw emails into Evernote and get rid of them from your Inbox. Many of these tools require a third party application in order to set the shortcut key. I've written an Automator action for Mac that runs as a "service", which in normal peoples terms means you can easily set a shortcut cut for this in System Preferences. Here's a link to my documentation about it: http://goo.gl/WIXG3x This Automator action is very specific (but can be easily changed if you know Applescript), it will: Use the currently selected emails in Mail.app to... Create evernote notes for each selected email and then... Move each selected email to the "Archive" folder of the appropriate Mail.app account, finally setting it's background to blue (so you know it was moved into Evernote)It's simple, but super effective - and one cool idea is that the Evernote note retain a link back to the original email message. You can download the Automator action, and install this by following the instructions here. Happy Evernote'ing! -- John Clayton
  24. As a premium subscriber - I want evernote to make my versioned notebooks available in evernote markup as git repositories. The minimum implementation would be a daily cron or similar to export/update a personal read-only git repo for version controlled backups. A backup is not a backup if it cannot be restored, it is an archive at best. Next step is to allow me to restore my evernote information from my Evernote git repository. The rationale: I have an easy backup mechanism - running git clone on a regular basis. Anyone who can use git, will want (and understand) this feature, which would be amazing for Windows, OsX, and Linux It makes it easier for people to do whatever they want with regards to personal automation around their evernote notes. It will lower the barrier for innovation on evernote content on all platforms. If write access allowed, It makes it easier to use any other external text/xml manipulation tool to update evernote. Make it easier to detect and track changes in your documents, as git is a mature tool for this, and so are the tools that use it. This "git backup" feature has the side benefit of making it easier for mature 3rd party tools on unsupported platforms e.g. Linux, OpenBSD, or anywhere GUI's fail, but git works!. That's it. This is what i am campaigning for now.
  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
