Version 3.3 of the Mac Evernote Client seems to break several Evernote AppleScript functions. Get the latest updates on the situation here.

Shortly after Evernote’s new client for the Mac (version 3.3) was released, I began receiving reports that some AppleScripts were either partially or totally broken. (An example – the Evernote-to-DEVONthink AppleScript isn’t working because, when you ask Evernote to export notes via AppleScript, it now causes a disk permission error.)

I contacted Evernote’s Developer team and they’ve told me they are working on the Evernote AppleScript bridge and that the product team is looking into the errors. I’ll post updates here as I have them but, if AppleScripts are a critical part of your workflow, you may want to hold off on updating to 3.3 until we know more!

Update on November 4, 2012

Evernote recently announced a completely rewritten Mac app which is now in beta testing. Once it’s released, I’ll continue working on the AppleScripts for Evernote. One side benefit for all you early adopters — since the beta is being distributed outside the Mac App Store, many of the broken AppleScripts seem to be working again.

Feel free to send me a message on Twitter or on App.net if you want to let me know how the new Evernote is working for you.

What The Rest Of The World Is Doing While I'm Sitting In Front Of My Computer

Here in New York, the weather has taken a beautiful turn: The sun is shining and, out my window, I can see people smiling and laughing while they walk down the street. “Out my window”? Yup – because I’ve been busy sitting at my desk, churning out AppleScripts for all you good Mac people.1

So before I join the frolicking masses, I thought I’d share a few of the latest updates and additions to the Veritrope.com Code Library. Hope you enjoy them and be sure to check back here when you take a break from playing in the spring sunshine. Who knows… there may be some more goodies2 coming soon!:

Redesign news and a Code Library update.

Visual Approximation of the Veritrope.com Redesign Effort

Autumn has arrived here in New York City and, somewhere out there, Bill Cosby is probably feeling grateful that it’s “sweater weather” season again!

Anyhow, I thought it would be a good moment to touch base with some site news:

Veritrope.com redesign and relaunch

2011 has already been a wonderful year for Veritrope.com: Readership is at an all-time high, we raised over $6,000 in cash and donated goods for two worthy non-profit groups and, on a personal level, it’s been incredibly gratifying to hear from so many of you.

All of this has helped me to discover something – how much I really like helping you. I’ve always believed in the power of doing things yourself and it makes me happy to know that the tools, resources and thoughts that you find here are helping you to do just that!

To that end, I think it’s time to take Veritrope to the next level. I’ve been working behind the scenes to find new resources to share with you and better, cleaner ways to present those resources to you. If you have any requests or ideas for things you’d like to see here, now would be an excellent time to get in touch. You can send me a message:

If all goes well, you’ll probably start to see the new stuff rolling out by the end of the month.

AppleScript updates

While things have been a little slow on the feature post front due to the redesign, things are busier than ever in the Veritrope.com Code Library! Right now, there are over 80 different AppleScript code modules and projects for you to download, remix, play around with, etc. (and there are more on the way!)

If you are looking to get more out of your Mac, I urge you to take a peek and see some of the ways that people are writing their own programs to do just that.
