Tinderbox 7 Icon


Tinderbox can also automatically import selected notes from Evernote. Evernote import works much like import from Notes.

From v7.3.1, multiple watched notebooks are supported, i.e. more than one (root level) watched Evernote notebook.

To connect Tinderbox to an Evernote notebook, create a root level container (and it can only be at root level) to hold the imported notes and set its $EvernoteNotebook attribute to the name of the notebook you want to import. Tinderbox will now automatically import or update that container whenever the TBX document is reopened, and periodically thereafter as part of the AutoFetch cycle.

The imported notes inherit from a built-in prototype named "Imported From Evernote", allowing you to set common key attributes or visual appearance.

The $URL of each imported note provides access to the corresponding data in Evernote.

For notes created from Evernote imports the attribute $SourceURL is set to the source URL of the note, if the note has one.

The import process is comparatively time-consuming, thus it may be preferable to limit import to notebooks with no more than a few dozen notes.
