Features I'm looking for on Evernote MenuBar Helper

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm new to EverNote, and I'm trying to figure out how to do a few things with the menubar Helper.

I want to:

  • Keep the notes window visible when I click outside of it.
  • Bold text
  • Assign Tags without opening the full app

Are any of these possible?

If not, I'll keep using NoteAway

 

Thanks,

Logan

I'm not clear on the "click outside of it".     edit: Sorry, I missed the Menubar Helper reference
Notes can be opened in their own window.  I keep my daily journal note displayed on a separate monitor.

When editing within the note body, an edit toolbar appears
Select the text, select B(old)

 

>>Assign Tags without opening the full app

I'm not clear on where you're operating if not in the Evernote app
fwiw, I use scripting on my Mac (AppleScript) and can assign tags/title/reminder without opening the Evernote app

Hi there, I"m talking about the Helper in the top MenuBar on the Mac. It drops down when you click on the Elephant icon and you can type something and "save to evernote"

Is there a way to keep it open while I click outside of it... switch tabs in a browser, etc. Because as it is as soon as I click outside of the dropdown Helper it disappears.

There also doesn't seem to be any text formatting for the Helper?

How do I set up the scripting to do the tags with the Helper?

If you want a more 'full-featured' experience, assign a key command to "New Note Window" — and it will give you a new Evernote window the size of a note. This will have the different formatting options that the Quick Note does not.
