I just added about 25 files to my usual Import Folder. About 1/3 of them successfully made it into Evernote. The rest are still sitting in the original folder. I can right click and send them to Evernote but what's going on? It's not an upload limit because I've only used 2% of my monthly upload this month. the only thing I can think of that changed was that I changed the rubric from Keep to Delete today. I'd formerly had it as delete but recently had to reinstall EN after a hard drive format and didn't realize it had defaulted to Keep everything. I have tried signing out and closing EN, opening and re-signing in, no change. Using Windows 6.14
I've understood that there is no "native" way to automatically import stuff from a given folder in the Mac version of Evernote, without resorting to AppleScripts that may or may not work after an update to either the operating system or Evernote. But, in the Windows version you can do this from Evernote itself. So this is something of a workaround, but if you use Dropbox or any other Cloud storage service (who doesn't these days?) AND you have access to a Windows computer that stays on most of the time, like a media sharing machine at home, your computer at work, in the basement or whatever, you can set up Evernote for Windows on that one, and set the Import folder to be a folder in your Cloud service. This way, any file that is placed in this folder from any computer, will be synced to Evernote through the Windows machine automatically no matter where you happen to be when putting it in there. The caveat is that the Windows machine must stay powered on at all times for this to work seamlessly. If you just want to be sure that the contents gets into Evernote eventually, you can rely on it being imported when you power on the Windows machine, anyway. Just a clumsy workaround for something that should be implemented on all versions of Evernote! Chris
For whatever reason and as far as I know, Evernote does not yet offer an import folder, such as it does on the other platform. I came across a easy-to-follow How-To video that explains the process: The Automator code is here: http://www.documentsnap.com/evernote-mac-import-folder/ It works flawlessly. Just drop anything into your designated Evernote Import folder, and it gets added automatically as an Evernote note. However, I have a special need. I have been using iNotepad for many years. Although it is not supported any longer, it still works with 10.10., and i have been using it for very important notes, information and documentations. I would like to have certain notes imported automatically using the SymLink feature of the OS. iNotepad saves into a proprietary folder which can be opened with Show Packages and I can symbolic link each .rtf file into my designated Evernote Import folder. But of course it won't update, because of the missing Automator code. If you have more experience than I have, would you help me to have the contents of the Import folder to be sent to Evernote automatically once a SymLink file changes? Or even better, when I make changes in Evernote that they reflect back to iNotepad. Any help is greatly appreciated. I am virtually sure that there are other programs where people have stored notes and information that they would like to have automatically updated in Evernote. If there are other ways to accomplish this, I would like to know that as well. Thank y'all very kindly.
