Has anybody created a workflow that can change the color of text to a specific color within the Evernote app? At the moment, Evernote only allows you to show and hide the Color Picker with a shortcut (C-Command-Shift for both hiding and showing). However, it doesn't even make the Color Picker window/pane active, so it's not entirely clear to me how to script something that would could pick a color and close the Color Picker. I'm a scripting newbie, but I find it really annoying to constantly have to fidget with the mouse to get this repetitive task done. In fact, several other people have complained about the issue on Evernote's message boards. Like most people that use Evernote, I commonly highlight text in articles and change its color when I want to draw my attention to something or take a note, etc. However, the app only has a menu item shortcut for highlighting text, and it does not include anything to help people change the text's color without clicking around with their mouse. For example, I'd love to just assign a shortcut in Alfred that changes the text's color to red. Within Evernote's Color Picker-restricted system, it would need to do something like the following: After text has been manually highlighted by the user (i.e., not highlighting, as in its format, but just selected with the cursor), use an Alfred workflow to assign a keyword or a shortcut to: Open the Color Picker (C-Command-Shift) Make the Color Picker window active Select the Color Palette option - which is the 3rd one from the top on Macs without anything else installed Click the "Apple" palette - which is the default option that should already be selected Click the boring old Red color towards the bottom, and Close the Color Picker (C-Command-Shift) Of course, I'm completely open to suggestions for a solution outside of Evernote, too - i.e., one that happens out of plain sight and does not depend on clunkily opening and closing the Color Picker. Thanks for any help you can lend!!
I coudn't find a color picker workflow so I converted an old alfred1 extention to an alfred2 workflow. I probably downloaded the extention from here: http://jdfwarrior.tumblr.com/post/11143489252/color-chooser the keyword is "color picker". It shows the OSX default color chooser and saves the selected color hex value in the clipboard. Download the workflow here: Color Picker
