Evernote Workflow 9 beta 4 (Alfred 4)

Recommended Posts

Hi --

 

Thank you very much for making this workflow available. Is it possible to use the workflow to quickly repeatedly add items to the same Evernote note? In particular, I'm looking to be able to quickly add without always selecting the destination note, either by pre-configuring a particular note or with a "add to the same note I most recently added to" command.

 

Any suggestions?

>Evernote 6+ from Evernote.com

So the workflow doesn't function on Evernote in the browser?!

Do I have to download EN? How for the Mac? I'm on the Evernote free plan.

When continuing writing after "ens" it changes to a Google search, so it's not working with EN online?!

 

/
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

With best regards,
Omar KN

@OmarKN Yes, the workflow requires that Evernote is installed locally as it can't interact with the website version. 

 

Is there any reason you'd want to download Evernote 6? I strongly encourage you to download Evernote 7 and the most recent version of the workflow under the "Download Evernote 9 beta 3" header, rather than the older version.

 

You can grab the latest version of Evernote from this page:

https://evernote.com/download

Hi Carlos-Sz, first of all excellent job for the workflow. I really appreciate your hard work on it.

 

Could I make a suggestion that when making notes using the "New Note from Clipboard(Text)", is it possible we can keep the format of the text, e.g. the font size, font color, etc. For current version, it seems it will just ignore all of the formats of the text. Or if the released version couldn't have that functionality, can you point me to the right direction so I could modify the corresponding code? 

 

Thanks again. Carlos-Sz. 😁

 

Jonah.

 When I type in ens in Alfred, it directly opens up Evernote without giving me a chance to search, which is not what I want.  It was working perfectly fine before - i.e, I could search the note in Alfred and hit Enter to open it, instead of opening Evernote.  Any suggestions to fix this?

@honkingmanuka As with other users earlier in the thread:

 

  • Make sure you're using Evernote from Evernote.com not from the App Store
  • Download the correct version of the workflow from the first post of this thread under "Download Evernote 9 beta 3"

Provided you've followed these instructions, results should be returned in Evernote. If you use any other versions (wrong version of the workflow or App Store version of Evernote), the workflow won't be able to return results as they won't be in the correct location for it to access them.

 

Please provide more details of the exact builds you're using for macOS, Evernote and Alfred if you're still having issues.

 

Cheers,
Vero

searching note titles has become painfully slow, to the point where it's faster to just search directly in Evernote itself...are there any steps I can take to try to improve this? thanks!

Hello,

Why not work in Alfred 4?

 

@Tatarin We've been using this workflow with Alfred 4, and it's working as well as ever :)

 

As with other users earlier in the thread:

  • Make sure you're using Evernote from Evernote.com not from the App Store
  • Download the correct version of the workflow from the first post of this thread under "Download Evernote 9 beta 3"

If you're seeing any issues, could you please pop up Alfred's debugger and let me know what error messages you're seeing?

The problem is the workflow data folder path is hard coded for Alfred 3. You can fix this by changing the line 7 of the workflow.scpt file to this:

set my _data to (system attribute "alfred_workflow_data")

 

I encourage @Carlos-Sz to use script environment variables in his workflows.

Right-click on the workflow icon on Alfred Preferences and click on Open in Finder after that.

As soon as possible, I'll try the system attribute alternative.

 

Thank you.

Carlos, have you ever considered to push the source code of your workflows to GitHub?


There's a lot of advantages on it:


1) better discoverability;
2) ease to document;
2) contributions from the community to expand the workflow, fix bugs and report issues;
3) versioned releases;
4) using OneUpdater to allow auto-updates.


It's very simple, straightforward and even fun. Maybe you are familiar with all of this and just don't want to do it for whatever reason, but if it's not the case you can check out my Things workflow as a reference. It's written in AppleScript as well.

I have never used GitHub but I'll try it eventually.

Very new to workflow and loving this one! :-) 
Is there any way of having Evernote scroll down to the location of my specific search?
Example: I have a note with a bunch of random stuff. It'd be awesome to have Evernote scroll down to the position of that text, so I don't have to search for the same keyword again in the note's search field.
Thanks!

Evernote 9 beta 4 Workflow for Alfred 4

 

Here is an update to address the new Alfred 4 data folder (thanks to xilopaint).

 

DOWNLOAD

 

Hey Carlos, now I realise you should add a trailing slash in your declaration in order to allow settings.plist be saved in the right place. So you should have:

set my _data to (system attribute "alfred_workflow_data") & "/"

Could you fix this and make a new release?

Hey Carlos, it seems the clipboard image can't be used to create a note. The clipboard text is fine though.

Where can I find an archived version of this workflow that works with Alfred v3?

 

Take a look at the first post in this thread, which includes links to beta 2 and beta 3, which are for Alfred 3 and either Evernote 6 or 7. Make sure you choose the version appropriate to the version of Evernote you're running.

 

Cheers,
Vero

hi,  I want to use this workflow on ”印象笔记“(evernote for china),  but I find it only support evernote. Is there any solution about this?

 

sp: I replaced 'com.evernote.Evernote' to 'com.yinxiang.Mac' in the script and then it works. Maybe you can release a 'offcial' version for that?

Could you please kindly share the workflow for Yinxiang? A thousand thanks.

I also tried to replace the application id with 'com.yinxiang.Mac', but I just cannot open the .scpt scripts in Apple Script Editor, and they are all wrongly encoded in other editors like VS Studio Code.

 

This workflow is really nice and work extremely perfect with Evernote International, my evernote account is also international actually. 

Though I just don't want to give up the features(Markdown, mind map, etc.) on version Yinxiang....
