Save and Restore Mac OS X Finder Windows, with Tabs and Positions

Since Apple released Mavericks (10.9), the Finder doesn't save and restore its open windows, and the tabs inside these windows. I find this a real nuisance and it wonders me why Apple haven't been able to fix this. I tried writing 'defaults' settings, with no effect.

Anyway, then I decided to write my own solution, in AppleScript. You can download them from this page, second entry.

Make a new folder inside a selected folder with Applescript

I wrote an Applescript with which one can create a new folder inside a current selected folder, or inside a current window or inside a folder containing a selected item.
You can read more and copy the code from my Scripting-page.

Apple Mail and Microsoft Outlook to Evernote

Today I modified a copy of my version of the Send E-Mail to Evernote script to work with Microsoft Outlook on Mac OS X.
Since I now have two scripts, I renamed them accordingly :
  • Send E-Mail (Apple Mail) to Evernote
  • Send E-Mail (MS Outlook) to Evernote

E-Mail to Evernote

I fixed some other flaws in my version of the Send E-Mail to Evernote.scpt:

Update 22 dec 2014:
- I repaired a situation where a piece of a HTML-email 'header' is no header, but contains a <style> … </style> segment, which contains semi-colons and which does not contain ampersands. And that is where the script crashed. This is the case with 'Order confirmation'-emails coming from DAZ 3D. I added the test if the part does also not contain a } and then it went through. Fixed. Now wait for the next email-formatting-idiocrazy for which the script has no solution.

E-Mail to Evernote

I fixed some other flaws in my version of the Send E-Mail to Evernote.scpt:

Update 13 aug 2014:
- I repaired a situation where there is no content-type found in the email headers. I now set it to text/plain in such a case.

Update 5 aug 2014:
- I repaired the strange time formatting (1=3=4=5 instead of 1345) when adding multiple email messages at once.
- And I added a dialog when the script has successfully finished processing for when Growl is not active.

E-Mail to Evernote

I fixed a bug in the Send E-Mail to Evernote.scpt where it would crash if the HTML at some point would contain &nbsp; or other ISO encoded characters. You can download a new version here.

If you maintain your own changes in this script, here's the fix. Change the following lines inside the function htmlFix:

if item 1 of paraSource contains ";" then

into this:

     --TEST FOR / STRIP OUT LEADING SEMI-COLON (skip &nbsp; stuff)
if item 1 of paraSource contains ";" and item 1 of paraSource does not contain "&" then

E-Mail to Evernote

A while ago i was looking for a way to shrink my list of mailboxes and the 1000s of mails therein. I already use MailSteward Pro to backup my emails to a remote MySQL server, but that is just in case everything gets lost at Apple's iCloud. Which isn't very likely.

Since my Apple Mail is starting to crash every few days since the latest Mavericks updates and is getting really slow in opening old and getting new mail (although I run on SSD), I am looking for another way to archive old emails and still have the same easy access with all search capabilities. This where Evernote comes in! Googling a bit I found this AppleScript: Apple Mail to Evernote.

The script works perfectly under Mavericks and I added some code to get the date/time in the title of the note. A screenshot of how an email in Evernote looks when my modified version of the script has done its job:

What you'll miss though is the grouping of the 'Conversation'-view which you have in Apple Mail.

So you can download the original or download my version.

Thanks to Veritrope for this very useful script!
