  1. Hi everyone, I used to be able to change the creation date of my notes but can't find this functionality anymore. I tried to do so from my iPhone and Windows PC. Did they remove this function? Your help is much appreciated. Thanks Sophia
  2. With this script you can press Control + Shift + 1 through 9, and it will set user defined custom styles to your selected note text. If I haven't made any parts of this tutorial easy to follow, please let me know. I use a lot of AutoHotKey scripts to automate Evernote, and I thought I'd share some of them. AutoHotKey is an incredible bit of (free) software that can automate anything that you can physically do with your computer. If you don't have a copy, you'll need to install it for this to work. To make sure your script is running every time you start Windows, do this. I work on a lot of documentation in Evernote, and I wanted a way to easily set standard heading and paragraph styles. I created a little script that let's me send Ctrl + Shift + 1 through 9 to set various styles that I have defined. Here's the script, and then I'll explain how it works: #IfWinActive, ahk_exe evernote.exe ^1::SetFontStyle("bold", 18) ^2::SetFontStyle("italic", 16) ^3::SetFontStyle("bold", 14) ^Space::SetFontStyle("regular", 12) #IfWinActive SetFontStyle(weight, size) { currentSendMode := A_SendMode ; Get the current Send Mode SendMode Event ; Event mode works better in the Font dialog Send {Home}+{End} ; Select the current line Send ^d ; Open the Font dialog box WinWait Font, , 5 Sleep 200 Send !y%weight% ; Style Send !s%size% ; Size Send {Enter} SendMode %currentSendMode% } The first hotkey Control + Shift + 1 sets the font to be 18pt bold. The second hotkey Control + Shift + 2 sets the font to be 16pt italic. If you want to change the settings to suit yourself, just edit the lines in the middle that are marked. You can make yourself as many hotkeys as you like, here's the format for doing them: https://autohotkey.com/docs/Hotkeys.htm Here's the explanation: First off is the #IfWinActive command. This means the hotkeys will only be active if the Evernote window is in the foreground. The next lines call a function named SetFontStyle when you press a hotkey. "^+1::" means if Control (^), Shift (+) and the number 1 key are pressed at the same time, it knows to run the function with a font style of "bold" and a font size of "18". In the SetFontStyle function, "Send ^d" sends the keystroke Control + D, to bring up the font dialog box. We then wait for the Font dialog window to pop up. Next line tabs to the font style part of the box and sets it as bold, then tabs to the font size and sets it as 18 points. We then hit enter and exit the dialog. Simple! Hope this helps someone. --- If you have another language than English, please follow these instructions to make it work with your language: You'll need to modify the name of the Font dialog. Change the word "Font" to be whatever your one is: WinWait Font, , 5 And then on these two lines: Send !y%weight% ; StyleSend !s%size% ; Size You'll need to make sure the keyboard shortcuts still work in your language. Here is my Font dialog. Notice how there is an underline under the 'y' of 'Style', and under the 'S' of 'Size'. That is the shortcut key. Have a look in your one and find out what letter it is, and then change the two lines of the script to match. I've highlighted in red the two letters in the snippet of code above. Save it and reload, and it should work for you!
  3. This post is intended as a basic guide for getting Evernote running under WINE in Linux. If people want to share tips etc, maybe we can build it into something quite useful. Evernote (mostly) works fine for me under WINE and has the last few times I've tried, so I thought I'd share my setup, and if anyone has any further information to add that would be great. *WINE can be a sensitive beast so maybe a list of known working combinations of "WINE version + Evernote version" may help some people? **NOT intended as a "please make a Linux version" thread, there's plenty of those. What doesn't work for me: (I'm not a heavy Evernote user so probably missing a few things) -New Audio Note (might be fixable haven't tried) -New Webcam Note (might be fixable haven't tried) I'm currently using: Linux Distribution: Elementary OS 0.3 -Freya beta (Ubuntu 14.04) WINE version: 1.7.25 Evernote version: Not sure if the below WINE settings make a difference, don't have time to test maybe someone can confirm? WINE settings: -32bit prefix set because using a 64bit machine -set to Windows 7 in winecfg -running gdiplus riched20 and msxml3 as native libraries in winecfg (msxml3 installed via winetricks) -have corefonts package installed via winetricks (someone mentioned installing the Tahoma font in winetricks and using a font-smoothing hack but I haven't had any issues with fonts) Installing WINE 1.7: Here's how to install the latest version of WINE and winetricks using Ubuntu based distros: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install wine1.7 winetricks Screenshot of Evernote running on WINE 1.7: ***On a side note, I remember that for quite a while Google were packaging a very usable combo of WINE and Picassa for Windows into an installable deb/rpm/etc for Linux because they didn't want to create a native Linux version for whatever reasons.

  5. Can anybody tell me how to ocr a pdf document inserted in a note? Thanks Victor
  6. Hi, So far I have a been storing a project-related documents (Word,Excel, etc) in a per project sub-folders of MyDocuments folder. As I have been using Evernote to organize my notes for some time, I now want to extend its use beyond the text notes and start storing files in it. But with the files I am facing a dilemma - should I need to store a duplicate of the file in the file system (file tree), or simply I simply copy the file to the Evernote and let it live only there. Also, as I first would need to save the file to some folder anyway (and the obvious choice would be a project folder) and only after that I can copy (drag and drop via mouse) the file to Evernote. Then - should I delete the file from the file system to avoid the duplication and ambiguousness? Is there a better way, to avoid saving the files into the intermediary location and save the the file straight to Evernote? Also, I noticed - that after the file is drag'n'droped to the note, it appears as icon + name + size + timestamp. Funny thing is that the timestamp has not been updated since the addition of the file, even though the file has been opened / changed / saved many times. Thank you.
  7. I have figured out how to share a notebook with a premium user (I am also a premium user) and they can edit the notes in my notebook, but I need her to be able to also add additional notes into my notebook. Is that possible? How do I do it? If it is not a current feature, I guess, it is a request to have Evernote create a level of rights for premium users to allow other users to add notes to shared notebooks.
  8. Hi Evernoters, I've been using OpenMeta tags to organize files for a few years, so figuring out how to automate importing those files with tags intact was a big prerequisite to starting to use Evernote as my primary file bucket. I adapted a few scripts I found here in addition to the OpenMeta CLI and Noodlesoft's Hazel and came up with a system that works pretty well. If you're interested, I made a post explaining the process here: http://www.n8henrie.com/2012/06/converting-openmeta-tags-to-evernote.html It took me a few days to get working correctly, so I figured I should share and perhaps save some of you a bit of time and effort if you're looking to accomplish the same.
  9. I wanted a faster way to tag, so wrote the following script. It allows quick tagging of notes using control and the number keys. For example pressing control and 1 will tag a note with 1.Now Steps:1. Install Auto key (more info @ http://lifehacker.com/316589/turn-any-action-into-a-keyboard-shortcut)2. Create a new script in Autokey3. Copy the following text in the script and save the autokey file: GroupAdd, EN_Windows, ahk_class ENMainFrameGroupAdd, EN_Windows, ahk_class ENSingleNoteView#IfWinActive, ahk_group EN_Windows^1::Send {F3}Send 1.NowSend {return}return^2::Send {F3}Send 2.NextSend {return}return^3::Send {F3}Send 3. SomedaySend {return}return^4::Send {F3}Send 4. WaitingSend {return}return^5::Send {F3}Send @computerSend {return}Return^6::Send {F3}Send @computerSend {return}Send {F3}Send 1.NowSend {return}return^0::Send {F3}Send 0.RockSend {return}Return 4. Double click on the autokey file (if it is running correctly it will appear as an icon in the task bar – if not it will tell you what line the error is on)5. Test the script – open Evernote and start a new note then press control 1 and the tag 1.Now will appear6. Click on start/all program and right click on Startup and select open7. Copy the script to the folder8. You can then edit the script and change my tags to your need (e.g. replace 1.Now or add a shortcut for control 7) Note:You can configure other hot keys in the script control is ^ Alt is ! and shift is +. (e.g you could configure a tag if you press control alt and 2 = ^!2):: tells the script to assign your command to this keyControl 6 assigns 2 tags
  10. For those who are using Evernote in Windows and asked "If only Windows version has Heading levels like in iOS!!". Now you can!! Sound's like Obama's Campaign don't it?

Hot Keys: Ctrl + 1 - Heading 1 (Bold, font size 16)Ctrl + 2 - Heading 2 (Bold, font size 14)Ctrl + 3 - Paragraph (Regular, font size 12)Ctrl + 4 - Block-quote ({two tabs spaces}, Italics, font size 12)here 1, 2, 3 4 are not Numlock Keys. Version 2 (with Color):Heading 1 (Bold,font size 16, Black)Heading 2 (Bold font size,14, green) Paragraph (regular font size, 12, black) block-quote (italic,font size 12,blue) Copy paste the below instead of the previous one:GroupAdd, EN_Windows, ahk_class ENMainFrameGroupAdd, EN_Windows, ahk_class ENSingleNoteView#IfWinActive, ahk_group EN_Windows^1::Send ^&{space}send ^dWinWait FontSend {Tab}Bold{Tab}16{Tab 3}bb{Enter}return^2::Send ^&{space}Send ^dWinWait FontSend {Tab}Bold{Tab}14{Tab 3}g{Enter}return^3::Send ^&{space}Send ^dWinWait FontSend {Tab}Regular{Tab}12{Tab 3}b{Enter}return^4::Send ^&{space}send {tab} {tab}Send ^dWinWait FontSend {Tab}Italic{Tab}12{Tab 3}B{Enter}return#IfWinActiveCan you change the code to suite your need?

If you want GREEN use {tab 3}g, if you want GREY use {tab 3}gg since it is the second color starting with g. [if you assume the default color is the Black the first color]. Also note the clear formating code doesn't clear the color only font size and B/i/U the color continues if you don't change. Like Below. Heading 2 paragraph The post is a slightly modified version of http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/36202-howto-create-hotkeys-to-set-predefined-font-and-h1-h2-h3-styles/ . Idea credit goes to qot.
  11. When I clip from a web page, the clipper panel correctly defaults to the appropriate Notebook, but it seems to have picked up a default tag. How do I remove the tag? If I actually want a default tag, how/where do I set it? Pardon my lazy search technique, but I eventually found the answer in the Knowledge Base where I discovered the smart tagging option!
