Evernote Workflow 9 beta 4 (Alfred 4)

Recommended Posts

Of course, beautiful workflow 8.991, working great with Evernote 6.2, ... Many thanks,

 

Ennt, is working just fine for me, I have a few templates working from a Templates notebook, but I would like to understand how to use the edrstone, on 26 May 2014 - 9:49 PM, template, http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/840-evernote-8991-evernote-606-support-search-create-append-set-reminders-all-within-alfred/page-21, ... I just get a note with the script, not a note configured according to the script, ... Maybe I am not interpreting this correctly, though, Thanks

I am now using the edrstone template -Thanks- and tweaking it, but my flow for using it as a template in Evernote is: Edit the xml file in Sublime Text, render it with Marked, and then copy the Marked note into Evernote and put that into the Carlos-sz Templates folder,  and call the templates via: ennt %

It is really amazing workflow! Thank you!  :)

 

But I have issue with this workflow and I cant fugre out how can I fix it little bit.

 

Here is the problem:

 

I use tags to organize everything in my Evernote.

And I use a lot of prefixes for tags.

For example I have tags:

 

@Calls

- Notes

*SelfNotes

.Projects

 

So, this special symbols used to categorize my tags.

 

searching with ens # seems to be working wrong with my tags.

 

Sometimes it will display just 1 note. Somethimes it will search not only for tags but also for text inside note with this text.

 

How is it possible to change workflow to search just for tags with prefixes and not search inside notes content?

 

Thank you!

This is possibly happening because the workflow uses some symbols internally to make the tags and notebooks menu possible.

 

If you’d like to search tags then try this command in Alfred: ens tag:Your tag here

HI Carlos,

I'm having problems creating notes via this workflow. Any idea what i did wrong?

 

Works - enn :type your note

Problem - enn @My Notebook :type your note.

 

 

It is working here. Please try the following:

 

- update Evernote app

- make sure to be using the latest workflow version (here is the version I’m using right now: download)

 

ASAP I’ll review the workflow due Evernote app changes.

Hello,

 

Thanks for such a great idea! I'm trying to do two seemingly simple things but haven't been able to yet:

 

1. Create a note with custom text and a custom title in a specific notebook

2. Create a note with no text and a custom title in a specific notebook

 

However I haven't been able to achieve these seemingly simple tasks. I've attached the raw text that I used to run my Alfred commands, as well as some screen shots to show what happened (please see attached images). Is this a bug or am I missing something?

 

Running:

OSX 10.11.4

Evernote Version 6.6.1 (453372 Direct)

Alfred 2.8.3

Evernote Workflow 8.992

 

Raw Text:

 

 

Goal1: Create a note with custom text and title in a specific notebook from the alfred.

 

attempt1: enn @Alfred Demo custom text1 :Custom title1

 

attemp2: enn custom text2 @Alfred Demo :Custom title2

 

attempt3: typenote custom text3 @Alfred Demo :Custom title3

 

Goal2: Create an empty note to open in Evernote in a specific notebook with a custom title

 

attemp1: enn @Alfred Demo :Custom title1 [enter]

 

attempt2: enn @Alfred Demo :Custom title2 [ctrl + enter]

 

attempt3: typenote @Alfred Demo :Custom title3 [enter]

Hi Carlos,

 

Me too. When I use @notebook it creates the note OK, but creates the note body from the clipboard

Edit: I am using 8.992

 

Thanks

Hey Carlos-Sz, I just wanted to let you know about something else that has been happening. When you run ens when Evernote is not already running Evernote will automatically boot up (which is really cool) but what ends up happening is Alfred quits before you have a chance to type anything and then the Evernote client will pop up so then you need to run ens again. I think it would be great if Evernote booted up after the Alfred command gets run so you don't have to do it twice and experience the Evernote client jumping into focus. I made a video of this use case that shows what I'm talking about a little more clearly I think.

 

Video showing ens causing Evernote to boot up and take focus

 

Man, I'm not sure how to link to my video without you having to download it. So I understand if you don't want to download and watch it but the basic use case goes like

 

if evernote isn't running and you run ens Alfred will quit before you have a chance to type anything else and then the Evernote client homepage will pop up. You then have to run ens again to be able to search for your note.

 

I think it would be better if you could run ens when Evernote isn't running and finish typing your query and then after hitting enter have Alfred quit and Evernote boot up with the requested query loaded, if that's possible. 

 

One thing that I'm thinking is maybe you need evernote to be running in order to be able to display the notes in the dropdown menu (also totally cool). If this is the case do you think it would be possible to: run ens when Evernote isn't running, Alfred does not quit, Evernote boots up in the back ground, and then starts sending it's information over to Alfred so the drop down menu can be populated?

 

Anyway, thanks for checking it out :) looking forward to hearing from you.

Hi, I love this workflow, but somehow am having trouble getting the append feature to work.

I downloaded both the latest Evernote from their own website as well as the workflow (8.991).

 

Here's how I tried to do it:

1) trigger Alfred, type in "ent ABC" (assuming ABC is the title of the note)

2) 3 results came back, I use down arrow to go to the correct one, and press cmd+enter

3) a new dialog pops up, the input field has an paperclip icon

4) I type "test" as the note to append, use arrow key to traverse to the option saying "type a text to append", then hit enter.

 

I check my note and nothing was added.

Please help me figure out what I did wrong.

 

Thanks,

Sean

I have problem with this workflow on Alfred 3. When I type ent and space, instead of searching in evernote I can see google search. It's only me, or global problem? I have same issue with ssh workflow. I'm start thinking about settings reset of Alfred.

hey folks, brand new Alfred user. I've been a longtime LaunchBar user and still really like that app but wanted to explore Alfred 3 and am intrigued by the Workflow functionality. I may just use both apps side by side. 

 

I'm an Evernote power user and was very interested in trying this workflow but I get the behavior listed above. I'm getting two issues I don't understand:

 

1. If I type the keyword 'ens', I get prompted to sync Evernote and the search option is not even presented.

 

2. If I just type 'en' and get to the appropriate search option from this workflow (which shows the 'ens' keyword, by the way), the only search options I'm able to execute are in google, wikipedia or amazon.

 

Is this a v2 to v3 issue, or am I doing something wrong?

I am having an issue with the workflow. Using Alfred 3, Evernote Version 6.6.1 (453372 Direct).

 

When type "ens", instead of coming up with "Search evernote", it shows me "evernote Sync". As if it skips that keyword....

 

So when i type "ens" and then press space to type my query, it shows me "Search Google for...".

 

Please help. Really need this workflow working.

Ok, I figured out how to fix it on my computer. Hopefully this will work for you guys. Now, first, I'm brand new to Alfred so I didn't have Alfred 2 on my computer. I installed Alfred 3 fresh, then bought the powerpack.

 

I found the folder that had the script files. Two of them had references to Alfred 2 instead of Alfred 3. I changed those, saved the files, and now the workflow is working for me.

 

Find the folder that has this workflow's script files. For me, that was in my user library/application support/alfred 3/alfred.alfredpreferences/workflows, then under that last folder there are folders with long text strings for names. I just searched for one of the script files to find the right one. Then in that script file you'll find two files that need modification: en_pref.scpt and q_workflow.scpt. Search for "Alfred" in those files and you should find two references in each to "Alfred 2". Change the '2' to '3' in each instance, save the file and you're done. At least that's what I did. 

 

I had the same issues as the last few posters, and now it's working perfectly.   hope this helps those of you who also have this issue.  Many thanks to FroZen_X who helped me troubleshoot this and ultimately figure it out. I'd still be stuck without his or her's generous assistance.

You're welcome :) and I'm a he ;)

For those who are interested the post is here: http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/8927-cant-seem-to-get-comics-workflow-to-work/page-2

 

In my last post i added the changed workflow, i hope that works also for others. Else change things like conejo23 said :)

 

Glad i could help :)

Any one know how you give an Evernote note made with Alfred a title? I read somewhere that you should write :Title - but is doesnt work.

The work flow idea is great, but it has really no use if you can not give your notes titles.

I've asked a couple of times in the forum how you give notes titles, but no answers. I guess it's just not possible. Now another problem rendered the work flow completely useless: after installing Alfred 3 a box comes up (twice!), every time I try to do something, asking me "where Alfred 2" is.

It's really a pity - Evernote for Alfred would really have been a nice thing if it had worked.

As you have Alfred 3 installed, it asks you where Alfred 2 is as it doesn't exist anymore as i assume. I had it installed before. Point it to Alfred 3, so that 

your workflow works again.

kelpie...see my last post above, I'm guessing he followed that advice. Gotta modify a couple of the scripts to point to Alfred 3 instead of 2 and then you're in business.

Hi

Yes, I looked at that but the files you speak of don't exist in that location on my machine

Cheers
