It’s great to hear the workflow is working for you.

 

Version 8.0 should be ready in a week or so.

 

Thank you for testing and for your feedback.

Hi, I've been using your Workflow for a while, but I just noticed that it's opening my Evernote app as soon as I type "ens". I don't remember it doing that before. Am I mistaken?

The workflow requires Evernote to be running because it uses the application AppleScript commands.

Question - when i have added the note book "enn @evernote" i get the option to create new note from clipboard, text selection or email. Can i make "email" preferred? Now i have to toggle down to email every time i wants to add a email....

Alfred should learn the most used action.

 

If it is not then go to Alfred Preferences>Advanced and make sure “Top Result Keyword Latching” is checked. You can also try to press “Clear Knowledge” button to force Alfred to start learning from scratch.

 

By the way, here it is the most recent build (we’re next to the final 8.0): download now

Carlos-sz.  When I use the workflow to say find a note, Evernote stays in the background.  I have to CMD-TAB to evernote after every search (ent, ens) inorder to see the results.

 

Is this a result of the workflow or evernote itself?

Hi. The workflow will only bring Evernote to the foreground when you press “Show in Evernote” menu item.

 

@ All:

 

By the way here is the latest build (alpha) with a lot of new features and improvements. See help for details (keyword en?). Download Now.

I think i have found a pattern regarding the "top result key word" issue. When i select an email and type "enn" the "top result" works perfect BUT when i decide to chose to add a note book into the equation the "top result" is not working.

Thank you for your feedback. 

 

It seems Alfred is not handling the order as it should.

 

Please, try the build below. This time the workflow will try to control the last used menu item (keyword enn) manually.

 

Note that this is a first build and I didn’t test it completely. Later today I’ll review it, test it and make some improvements if necessary.

The process I use to query a note is: e.g. type 'ent recipes', and press CMD-2, CMD-X to get the right note.  Pressing ENTER after typing 'ent recipes' will only show me Evernote.

 

I think it's an issue with having too many desktops.  I usually have up to 5 desktops running across 2 monitors.  And the script basically brings up the note on one of the other desktop that's not in focus right now.

 

Is there anyway to modify the script give the note focus?

Go to the desktop where your Evernote is. Right click its dock icon. Go to Options and select (Assign to) All Desktops.

Finally, if you type ent recipes you have to first use the arrows to select the note then press return key otherwise the Show in Evernote will be highlighted by default giving focus to Evernote itself.

This is awesome. Thank you. 

 

I've put together some AppleScripts for Evernote, which may or may prove helpful additions to this workflow. I have a bunch as Gists here: gist.github.com/smargh . For example, I have an AppleScript to create an HTML note in Evernote from some Markdown formatted plain text file. This could easily be tweaked to work as a File Action. 

 

I'm not trying to push anything, but I plan on tweaking my personal version of the workflow to add some functionality. I just thought that some of these features might be more generally helpful. I personally write tons of notes in Markdown and then send this to Evernote as HTML. If you are interested in this functionality, I could add it on my end and we could go from there. 

 

But either way, great workflow.

Markdown support (I’m not sure about the best way to implement it yet) is planned. I’ll check your AppleScripts. 

 

Right now I’m using Byword Premium that can publish a markdown text to Evernote.

I call MultiMarkdown via a do shell script. It would likely be possible to bundle MultiMarkdown within the workflow, and then call it internally to translate Markdown to HTML, then sending that to Evernote.

Thanks! I use Mavericks 10.9.2 and a HP Printer connected via USB. 

It takes about 1 minute till the image capture app starts. After scanning I get an notification "Error. Try again latter."

I have 811 notes within my Evernote account... every time I try to use the Workflow, it simply says evernote searching.... I'm running OSX 10.9.2, Evernote 5.5, and 8.0 for this workflow. Do you have any idea what may be going on here?

 

Thanks!

 

Make sure to update Alfred 2 and make sure to download Evernote from evernote.com.

 

In addition, please try to delete the workflow, download and install it again.

It seems this workflow can not recognize the tag start with "#" symbol. i.e. "#To Buy"

 

When I want to create a note with tag "#To buy", it's not workable.

 

Is there any chance to update or It should other solution I don't know? ^_^

There is no simple solution right now. Sorry.

Hi, this is the first workflow I imported so I am trying to understand how I can use it.

I am not able to figure out how I type the title of a note and then add something else to the body. Thank you.
