  1. I'm beginning to use Evernote Clipper to save my bookmarks, but was looking for a way to import my existing bookmarks from Chrome, without having to clip every. single. one. I don't really know how to code, so Applescript, etc. was out for me. But I figured out this work around. It requires signign up for a few things, but once you're done, you're done! and the import is quick. Note: This is a crude import system. You may not get pictures imported with the links, or tags automatically added (other then from what you set in IFTTT). It's quick and dirty, but gets the job done. Also, this will probably work with services other than Pocket, that's just the one I already an account with. In your browser, export your bookmarks into an HTML file. Login or create account at getpocket.com (we'll come back to this, but you need a Pocket account setup before the next step) Login or create account at IFTTT.com Create new recipe: IF...Pocket...Any New Item... THEN...Evernote...Create New Link Note... (Fill in settings as you want. I add the tag ".Bookmark" for easy sorting later) Go to: http://getpocket.com/import/delicious Under "2. Import your bookmarks", Upload your HTML file from Step 1 Click "Import" Wait for the magical elves in the cloud to do their work. It will take longer for the more bookmarks you have, but is still way less than doing this all manually. Now all your old bookmarks are in the same place as your new ones, as you add with Clipper. You can choose to go back through and organize with notebooks and tags as you like. If you're not familiar with IFTTT, I recommend it for other actions, like adding Facebook posts and photos to your Evernote.
  2. How to Completely Remove and Reinstall EN Mac Rev 7.2.1: 2018-04-09 16:59 GMT-0500 This question seems to come up a lot recently, and since I could not find a good, official document on it, I put together this set of instructions about a month ago. I thought I'd publish it here where it is easy for all to see and reference. If you find any errors, omissions, or have any concerns about this process, please post below. If urgent, feel free to PM me. Procedure for Full Removal/Reinstall Do a full sync, UNLESS you do not want the EN Cloud Notes to update your local Mac version. Export to ENEX files* any Local NBs and unsync’d Notes that you may have Backup (Optional) and Completely Uninstall EN Mac App and data (click this link to see details) Download the version of EN Mac you want to install Re-download even if you previously have downloaded it For the latest version, from the Evernote.com web site Ver 6.11.1 Build 455059 (recommended) Ver 6.9.2 Build 454158 (download from FileHippo.com; you may need to refresh the page several times) Install the EN Mac version you downloaded Allow it to sync (download in this case) all of your Notes from the EN Cloud. Import the ENEX files, if any, (from Step #2) into this new install * When you export Notes to ENEX, it will break all links to these notes, and the following metadata is lost: Notebook, Stack, Tag hierarchy. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Switch to Direct Download Version (Revised Fri, Dec 12, 2014) IF you just want to switch from the Mac App Store version to the Direct Download version, in most cases it is just a simple as downloading/installing the Direct Download version, and the Evernote installer will do the switch/conversion for you. If you are having problems with the AppStore version, this is highly recommended. For more info see these posts by Evernote employees Automatic Conversion from AppStore to DirectDL, Jackolicious, May 13, 2013 Switching from AppStore to DirectDL, SoftwareMarcus, Dec 12, 2014 NOTE: Switching back to AppStore is complicated IF you have Local Notebooks. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– I have been unable to find any official Evernote documentation that provides the full, complete instructions for this, including dealing with Local NBs.

  3. Evernote is a wonderful platform, but I have a concern and I am sure I am not alone. I want to use Evernote for managing all sorts of information related to work projects, but I want to have the ability to export them to a desktop folder to use elsewhere if I want to. As far as I can tell, Evernote supports exports in PDF and HTML, but this is not very useful to me. I would like to be able to export to .doc or .txt so I can use my data outside of Evernote if I ever choose to. Right now it seems that content is basically trapped in Evernote's ecosystem forever. Please tell me I am wrong.
  4. 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!
  5. Greetings, I would think this is a stupid question, but after much searching I see other people with similar questions but no answers to them. What I want to know is, "How can I see the list of people shared on a note?" I need to make sure everyone in our group can see a note, and while it says "Shared with others" I can't get a defined list of who exactly those "others" are. As a side question somewhat related, I took a note someone posted in a shared NoteBOOK, and moved it to a place that makes more sense for me. It no longer says "Shared with others" at the top. So does that mean that note is no longer shared, even though I'm not the one that made it? The whole layout and mechanics of the "shared" system seems very convoluted and confusing to me. Thanks!
  6. I've combined 144 notes into 1 note. By combining them, I thought it would be a "new" not and the originals would still exist. How canI undo it and have the seperate notes again.
  7. Hi there, I've been a loyal Evernote user for a number of years. I really love the app and use it for all of my notetaking needs. I've recently bought an Apple iPad pro and Apple pencil. I'd like to use those with Evernote to take handwritten notes to keep alongside my regular typed ones. Is that possible? If not why not? If not, when is this functionality coming? Best wishes, Pete
  8. I can get an email in the morning, which is nice, but I was hoping that Evernote would pop up a little window when a reminder came due. I get a notification on my iPad but not on my Windows 7 Desktop. (New user)
  9. 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.
  10. Mac 10.9.5 Evernote 6 I have thousands of notes many of which contain encrypted text. I use the same password for all my encrypted text. Is there a way to temporarily decrypt all of the text BEFORE exporting to HTML? Thank you for your time and consideration.
  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)?
  12. This is a registry tweak on how to make the Windows 10 note quick action in the notification center launch Evernote desktop app. Choose method 1 if you are experienced with the windows registry or else choose method 2. Method 1 Open the windows registry and navigate to the key below. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ActionCenter\Quick Actions\All\SystemSettings_Launcher_QuickNote Double click on the string value "URI" and change its value to "evernote://". Now close the registry sign out and sign back into windows. Go to notification center and hit the note quick action. Voila! Method 2 Open notepad and paste the following text highlighted in red below: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ActionCenter\Quick Actions\All\SystemSettings_Launcher_QuickNote]"Icon"=dword:0000e70b"IsAllowedAboveLock"=dword:00000000"Title"=dword:00000075"Type"=dword:00000002"Uri"="evernote:" Go to file and click Save file as.Change Save as type to All files.Name your file with .reg at the end.Now go to your saved file and double click it.Click yes when prompted to add information to the windows registry. Enjoy!
  13. Just for posterity... For those who stumble across this thread via a forum/ Google search, here's a straightforward blog post on how to back up and restore your Evernote data: http://www.pcworld.com/article/2932989/syncings-not-enough-how-to-back-up-and-restore-your-evernote-data.html The premise is the following: "Syncing's not enough... syncs can go awry. Cloud services can go down. Here's how to ensure your notes are there when you need them."

  15. Hey guys! I was using evernote the other day on my tablet and was using an input method in which the base of the screen was a white space that i could write on with my stylus and that converted the written words into proper text and punctuation up top on the page. I went back to do so again today and just can't figure out how it is i got to that particular tool. Every other method i come across is strictly the handwritten way that doesn't convert to text. Please help!
  16. If anyone is interested I just published a blog post on this. Hope it's useful to someone! http://bit.ly/1eXUKXn -- Cheers Mark
  17. Hi, I have recently gotten an iPhone 6 Plus. This may be really easy to answer. When I use my Mac Evernote, the default font size is perfectly readable. On my new iPhone 6 Plus, the text is just approaching the point where I would like to increase the size visible on screen, but I don't want to increase the font size and have it larger on the Mac or any other screen I might read it on. Is there a simple way to do this? Pinch and zoom is no use, as you now have to scroll. I want to get larger text and automatically have it reflow. Any thoughts?
  18. Hi All I think I have probably discovered already that this is not possible, which is disappointing considering I learnt this after I signed up for premium, but is there anyway I can get PDF's into evernote so that they show as the file contents in the web and ios apps rather than just the attachment that needs to be downloaded each time. I admit I am a "late comer" to evernote and many have been using it for years but alas I have not. I have tho been "scanning and chucking" for a number of years which means I have quite an accumulation of PDF's that it would be great to have in evernote (rather than having to use two services) that I cannot see how I can recreate to put into evernote and I no longer have the originals. Any suggestions on how to do this or plans to change this? Thanks PS I have Wndows, Iphone and Ios app and also use webapp. I have access to a snapscan (not evernote version tho) but this is not on the machine with evernote installed.
  19. Dear evernote gurus I am very new to evernote, but think that I like it A LOT and that I will use it A LOT. As I hope to be using it more and more, I am trying to think of things that I should consider doing or not doing to avoid problems down the line - while keeping the free flowing feel of freedom that so delights me. So, here is my question that I would appreciate your input on : At first I was creating lots and lots of notebooks but quickly realized that this is not the way to go. Now I tag. And I love doing that. I currently have only very few notebooks - an inbox, a file cabinet and an extra notebook of my sons drawings and things, which I separated for sentimental reasons (I like that I can just go in and look at his stuff whenever I feel like it). Now, here is my question: I have read a lot about setting up a strict tag hierarchy, being extra careful about tagging correctly, etc. This seems very restricting to me - not to mention a whole lot of effort. I have created a very loose tag hierarchy - but mostly tag every note with as many tags as I think make sense and that I believe I'll think of when searching for this particular item. Mostly that ends up being 4-6 tags. I am also operating on 'when in doubt, add an extra tag'. While I do take care to make the tags case consistent (is that a word?) and use only singular (mostly because I like the look...) I do not try to figure out a strict context of tags that I adhere to, on the premise that it will be harder for me to look up what the strict structure says than to just use whatever I think of first. I have tried trial runs and have no problems whatsoever finding notes, no matter what the context, as the tags make a lot of sense to me. Of course - I only have a couple of hundred notes and maybe 30 tags... I love doing it this way, it gives me a strange sense of satisfaction to intuit tags like that, so I would love to keep on doing it. But... if many more experienced users suggest a different way, there is probably a reason... So, experienced evernote users, I'd be very grateful for your opinion - can an intuitive tagging system like that work, even if I run up lots and lots of notes? Thank you for your time and input anna
  20. I found the tech note on how to create stacks (ability to nest notebooks) misleading. https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/208314158-How-to-organize-notebooks-into-stacks The part where it says to drag and drop a notebook on top of one another to create a stack DOES NOT WORK IN THE SIDEBAR! It only works in the Notebook main window. PLEASE update the link above to include this info or add a feature request so you can do it from the sidebar.
  21. I'm looking at using Evernote for important business files, etc. If I decide to do this, I need to know that there is a backup happening somewhere in case something happens (such as a crash, Evernote disappears, you know, things you don't want to happen). Can anyone help me be reassured that I won't lose my files should the unexpected happen? thanks!
  22. I just started using evernote after years of not using it. I love most of it and am considering premium in the future. however, I can't seem to find anything about creating stacks in the current version on a mac. there are many things about stacks on MAC, but that was previous versions I believe. I have also discovered stacks are available and easy to create in Windows. Is this available on MACs or not? If not, why?
  23. 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.
