  1. I have been using Evernote for more than a year now. The feature that I am missing the most is to create a new note within a note, like I would do in a wiki. For example: Select a word or a phrase. Right Click In the context menu: click on create a new note. A new note is created with the selected text as the header A link to the new note is placed in the existing note with the selected text as anchor.Some benefits This feature could convert a lot of personal wiki users to Evernote.Saves a lot of time: no need to create a new note, edit it, copy a link to that note, and paste it to the existing note.Saves some trouble too. If you forget to put the link to the existing note, that association between the notes that you need is lost forever.Hope this inspires the Evernote team to implement this feature. Thanks for the nice product anyway.
  2. We, Humans, have been using cabinets, notebooks, folders, files and notes to store data for long. Why? Because this used to be the only technology we knew for it. However, It's not the natural way our mind deals with information. Our brain is a network rather than a cabinet. We need to quickly associate ideas, thoughts and all kind of information to be productive and creative! EN would become a killer if it allows more flexibility for outlining information. What about becoming more wiki-style, like some past programs (SeoNote, Treepad) or present services such as Confluence and Notion.so? By doing so, Evernote would allow teams to collaborate and share common places (not notes!) which could be actually workplaces or even hyperlinked Knowledge Bases (not a stack of notebooks!). I think this is the future of information management. I really want Evernote to embrace it.
  3. Good day to every one. It's been six years now since I use Evernote as my main knowledge database. I have many notes connected with internal Evernote links, on different subjects, so many of my notes are part of a nebulous wiki. However, I am a bit worried because all those notes are locked inside Evernote interface, they depend on Evernote app for navigating among them. I know I can make an export of them, but the resulting collection of notes is not navigable besides a general index, which is impractical: internal links don't work between html version of the notes, they only drive back to the original evernote format notes. So I wonder if is there a way to exporting a working wiki / navigable set of notes out of evernote, in html format or any other format that would be readable out of Evernote...
  4. Please can you stop the 'edit' link on Wiki articles appearing when saving an article as 'Simplified Article'? As you can see from the screenshots, it makes for unreadable subtitles throughout a given article. If we're saving a wiki article in 'simplified' format, we don't want 'edit' functionality. Thanks.
  5. Hi everyone, I went through the forum and I think that what I'm looking for is something called "markdown", is that correct? Not sure if it is, so here's my question. I use Evernote for lots of things, as many of you do, I'm sure, and one one my favorite things is to use it to take notes when I'm reading books and I want to take some notes about, let's say Socrates. So I start writing about his life, the way he thinks and, along the way, always comes a new word that I don't know the meaning. So, what I do is (previously created a Notebook for this) go to my Dictionary notebook and create a new note inside it, use that new word as the title, type the meaning bellow and, after that, right click the note, select Copy Note Link, go back to the note about Socrates, select the new word, hold down Cmd+K and paste the link. There, a wiki-like note is created. And I'm quite happy with it, except I think it would be much easier if all the steps in between could be skipped. Right? So, any of you fellow advanced Evernote users know of a quicker way to do this? Is the Evernote team looking at all at making this possible? Would it be awfully difficult to add the "Link to New Note" option from the contextual menu where the "Link/Add ..." already exists? From what I understand, and believe me it's not too much, about the whole "markdown" thing, is that it would take quite a rewrite of Evernote's way of working, but that's for much more advanced features than the one I'm looking for, right? The only thing I would like to see is basically something that is already possible, although it takes several steps. Hope someone can provide a workaround, or that the Evernote team is thinking of implementing such a feature Thank you so much for reading. Best, Rui
  6. Like many users (I imagine), I initially fell in love with Evernote and its ability truly to be my external brain. I have used it extensively this year (my first year of grad school). However, I began to flirt with alternatives in the wiki-verse because I really love the idea of what I call organic horizontal organization; that is, a form of organization at the base level of notes (or pages, or documents, or what ever you call your base note form) that is interconnected among itself, creating an inter-locking, inter-linking web. This is the true power of wikis. As a Mac user, I worked with Voodoopad for a while. Although I loved to no hassle page linking (simply type a WikiWord and a new page is created; if a page exists and you type its title somewhere, it is automatically linked), I did not love the Interface. Specifically, I felt it greatly lacked a means of powerful Vertical Organization; that is, the nested organization with multiple levels seen in Finder, for example. This was always one of my favorite aspects of EN as well, with the Stacks and Notebooks. Another issue for the personal desktop wiki program was the cumbersomeness of external linking. While it was almost magical how easily Voodoopad linked to voodoopad pages, it was quite the hassle to link to external files. I was particularly frustrated by this fault because I take advantage of numerous apps now creating their own custom URL schemes to create an inter-linked knowledge base across my various applications. In struggling to automate external link creation in Voodoopad via Applescript, I stumbled across Markdown (I'm late to the game, I know). While I had seen simply Markdown syntax before (# for header, etc), I had not seen the Markdown linking syntax. It is quite simple, and being plain text, easily automated. Unfortunately, while Voodoopad can export its documents from Markdown to HTML, it cannot easily view Markdown as HTML within the program. Thus my cross-app links look quite ugly (i.e. The script below will take the text of an EN note, search for WikiWords, and create new notes with those WikiWord titles. It will then retrieve the note links of these new notes, create Markdown formated [title](link) entries for each, and replace them in the text. One then merely pastes into Markable and exports to EN. With this script, you can write a new note, put in WikiWords as you wood in a personal wiki and it will generate new pages if necessary and link to all pages with WikiWord titles. The script currently creates all new notes in a new Notebook that is named the original note title. Each note you write thus becomes an Index Page (in Voodoopad speak) for its sub notes. While the script doesn't quite create the fluidity of a personal desktop wiki (finishing typing a word and it links), it does create a very fluid wiki-like experience in EN (tests run appr. 3 seconds). This script is definently a beta. And I am an Applescript noob, so I doubt it is the most efficient. But it works quick enough for me. Any additions or alterations are welcome. I would love to add soon an AutoLinking function (a la Voodoopad's automatically link to a page if you type the page title), as well as migrate away from the third-party app Markable to get from Markdown to Evernote. But, as it stands, this script will Wikify your Evernote. Script is here (the forum won't currently let me attach a script file to the post, sorry). (* Wikify Evernote Applescript -- Stephen Margheim -- open source this script take the selected note and treat it as the Index Page for Wiki-Style sub-pages created in a seperate Notebook that is entitled the same as your Note. It uses WikiWords and [bracketed] words as the base for the newly created notes. NOTE: You may either type WikiWords or [bracketed] words, but multiple words within brackets (i.e. [multiple words]) will create 2 notes: "multiple" and "words". The script functions by [1] turning the content of the selected EN note into plain text, [2] searching that text for WikiWords and placing [brackets] around them, [3] extracting all terms that are contained within [brackets], [4] creating a new Notebook in EN (if necessary) with name of selected note, [5] searching EN for existing notes with titles of the [bracketed] terms, a "Wiki" tag, and placed in the newly created Notebook, [6] creating all necessary notes in the new Notebook, [7] getting the note links of all the notes in that new Notebook, [8] putting the note name and note URl together in Markdown format, [9] putting [brackets] back around the note titles, [10] creates 2 lists: one, of [bracketed] note titles (which were WikiWords and [brackets] in original note); and two, of Markdown formatted note titles and note links, [11] removes any duplicates from lists, [12] sorts both lists so that they are in the same order, [13] finds [bracketed] terms and WikiWords in original notes and replaces with Markdown formatted [Note Title](Note Link), and finally [14] exports new text to Markdown editor for Evernote, Markable. At this point the user must manually export the Markdown text to Evernote as HTML (very important, and not currently the default setting). Currently, exporting to EN opens dialog box with Notebooks--navigate to notebook with original note--and then to the notes in that Notebook--navigate to the original note--and update. A bug in the current version of Markable renames the orifinal EN to "Unsaved" if the Markable document is not saved in the program. I have seen Ruby scripts online to push Markdown to EN, but have yet to explore how best to integrate them into this script. I am sure it is easy, and would get rid of the manual export in Markable (as well as the current bugs). So if anyone wants to embed those Ruby scripts, feel free. I would love that. I note upfront that this is cobbled together from numerous other scripts and handlers; some altered more than others. I have attempted to note original authors for sections of the script throughout, but I haven't slept much, so I'm not certain that I didn't miss a few. *) --get selected note tell application "Evernote" try set Evernote_Selection to selection if Evernote_Selection = {} then display dialog "Please select the note to Wikify" end if set noteName to (title of item 1 of Evernote_Selection) end try --get plain text of note; from Justin's Veritrope script set the_HTML to HTML content of (item 1 of Evernote_Selection) set plain_Text to do shell script "echo " & quoted form of the_HTML & space & "| textutil -convert txt -stdin -stdout" end tell set the clipboard to plain_Text Wikify() set Bracketed_text to the clipboard tell application "Evernote" set Evernote_text to the clipboard end tell extractBetween(Evernote_text, "[", "]") set Bracket_list to the clipboard set BracketLater_list to get words of Bracket_list --search for and create notes from above list tell application "Evernote" set tid to AppleScript's text item delimiters set Wiki_list to the clipboard set Wiki_list_count to (count words of Wiki_list) as number if (not (notebook named noteName exists)) then make notebook with properties {name:noteName} end if set notebook1 to notebook noteName set notebook_search to name of notebook1 set i to 1 repeat with i from 1 to Wiki_list_count set Wiki_word to word i of Wiki_list set matches to find notes "intitle:" & Wiki_word & " " & "tag:Wiki" & " " & "notebook:\"" & notebook_search & "\"" if matches = {} then set Wiki_note to create note title Wiki_word with text "" notebook notebook1 if (not (tag named "Wiki" exists)) then make tag with properties {name:"Wiki"} end if set tag1 to tag "Wiki" assign tag1 to Wiki_note end if if (i > Wiki_list_count) then exit repeat end if end repeat --All sub notes are now created with appropriate tag and title --Next, synchronize to get note links for all wiki notes set noteLink to missing value repeat until isSynchronizing is false end repeat synchronize delay 0.1 end tell delay 1 --to ensure that the sync is complete before querying for note links (have had "missing value" returned with smaller delay.

This is the true power of wikis. As a Mac user, I worked with Voodoopad for a while. I was excited to text the power of a personal wiki to really utilize both Internal (within the program) and External (to other programs files) Links. Although I loved to no hassle internally linking to other Voodoopad pages (simply type a WikiWord and a new page is created; if a page exists and you type its title somewhere, it is automatically linked), I did not love the Interface. Specifically, I felt it greatly lacked a means of powerful Vertical Organization; that is, the nested organization with multiple levels seen in Finder, for example. This was always one of my favorite aspects of EN as well, with the Stacks and Notebooks. I also found it cumbersome for External Linking.

Unfortunately, while Voodoopad can export its documents from Markdown to HTML, it cannot easily view Markdown as HTML within the program. Thus my cross-app links look quite ugly. Evernote, however, presents HTML notes beautifully. So I wrote two Applescripts to create Wiki-like functionality within Evernote. The essential tools Applescript and the Markdown2Evernote command for TextMate (which can also be a Service for any text editor. More information here (http://blog.timlockridge.com/blog/2013/02/03/using-textmate-and-markdown-with-evernote-configuring-a-workflow/) and here (http://nsuserview.kopischke.net/post/6223792409/i-can-has-some-markdown). Other than that, the scripts run text manipulations and Evernote searches to get what I want. My goal is to mimic the key functionality of Internal Linking in personal wiki programs: [1] to autolink to new notes that are created without having to leave the current note [2] to autolink to pre-existing notes without having to leave the current note Each script performs one of these functions. In the future, I will try to combine them into one autolinking script. I have initial versions of both scripts in the Developer's section of the forum (http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/38682-wikify-evernote-via-applescript/). But I wanted to give as many people access as possible. Plus, I updated both scripts. I have attached both scripts as .txt files below. I would love for people to test them and see how they work. They have detailed preambles that explain what they do and how to get them to work, but I will replicate the essential details here. [1] To autolink to new notes: This script take the selected note and makes it an Index Page for Wiki-Style sub-pages created in a seperate Notebook that is entitled the same as your Note. It uses WikiWords and [[bracketed]] words as the base for the newly created notes. To use, you simply type up a note and put in WikiWords or a term in [[double brackets]]. When the note is finished, run the script, and you will now have an Index-like note with in-text links to new notes in a new notebook with your notes title. NOTE: You may either type WikiWords or [[bracketed]] words, but multiple words within brackets (i.e. [[multiple words]]) will create 2 notes: "multiple" and "words". [2] To autolink to pre-existing notes:This script searches for matches in the current EN note to pre-existing Wiki notes and links to them. This can work because the previous script assigns the tag "Wiki" to every note it creates. Thus, all of you notes that are apart of your Wiki web can be searched specifically. It thus mimics the autolinking functionality of personal wikis, such as Voodoopad. To use, you simply either type up a note or go to an existing note and run the script. NOTE: For the script to work best, I would highly recommend that you create Unique Titles for your Wiki notes. Although Evernote allows this, it mucks up the precision of this process if you have two notes (for example) that are both titled "WikiWords" and have the tag "Wiki". This could easily happen if you run the first script on two separate notes, both of which contain the term "WikiWords". You would then have two notes in two notebooks with this title. To combat this, in the future, I hope to combine both scripts and run them such that new notes with the same title are not created. Notes and warnings aside, these two scripts can help you to Wikify your Evernote. Wikify Evernote_autolinking to existing notes v.2.txt Wikify Evernote_autolinking to new notes v.2.txt
  8. Hi guys and Evernote Developers, I am a proud user of Evernote for its ease of use and its many practicalities. I have also tried many (and most) other outliner programs on mac, windows and web platforms to see how Evernote matches up and how it could be improved. While Evernote still comes out on top, I find it hard for it to compete with web programs in the area of data collection. I also find it lacking in some areas where it could be drawing new users. This is why I propose that Evernote take the transition into a program which lets users create and own their own personal internets. I say this as some programs like voodoo pad which I admire, let the user create their own personal wikis with automated creation of links as you type to pages with that name. I think this should be implemented into Evernote as a cool way to structure and organise your notes, but it could go further. Evernote could be the first outliner program to fully support the creation and modification of web pages internally. That is, full support of javascript, flash and all the other things that make the web work so that when an article is clipped from the internet, it works exactly the same in Evernote (some features to block the ads would be good though). I have heard users ask this before, so why not go all the way. Evernote should not only be able to run pages natively, but browse the web as well. This would be extremely useful for data collection if you could have the internet and the outliner in the same window! Also, to go with this would have to be a large search bar up the top (of course), bookmarks (of web pages and notes), a startup page (how about the new Evernote pin-up board acting also as a web quick start page) and the ability to assign a note or web page to be your startup page, viewing history and if possible extensions or the ability to use chrome extensions of something. Also, for the developers, some tools to modify the scripts on the page (including note xml) would be useful, like the tools bar and editor at the bottom of the chrome and safari web browsers. All these features can be implemented by using code from the open source Chromium browser. To appeal to the web developers, it would be great also if Evernote was a bit more like Coda - a great and very simple web coding program. Note XML and page HTML could be opened up in a page like this in a new tab if people choose, from a button in the developer tools at the bottom. Adding the variety of different languages which Coda supports could be left to 3rd party developers. I also love the buttons at the top to switch between modes. In Evernote it could be web page, source code, outliner, markup. About the last one - markup. This is something which I think Evernote lacks as a quick note tool. Some of the tools from Skitch should be implemented right into Evernote as well as more ability to manipulate images like resize them. Some simple mind mapping tools would also be very good. A feature which has been asked for by many users before is tabs. This would become a must in a web and wiki program. My suggestion is using Opera style tabs which enable the sorting of tabs into groups which stack on top of each other then expand sideways when clicked. This could be done automatically in groups accordion to the notebooks that notes are sorted in and the web pages just as normal tabs (people can sort these into groups themselves as they browse). This image also demonstrates Opera's quick look feature. I also like that feature in IE which lets you see a layout of all your open tabs in one window (but I won't open that can of worms) One final, final feature which I suggest would be useful (even though i'm sure there are countless others) is the ability to grab a tab or page and drag it to a section on the screen to divide the page into two like your can do on the desktop on a windows computer. This would just make comparing, referring to and collecting data from things a lot simpler even on windows than resizing the whole screen. I know the was a lot to take in, and I congratulate anyone who even read it all, but that is the way I think Evernote should progress in the future. You may have a conflicting vision or an idea to improve this one. If so, I would very much like to hear it.
