Create new files in Evernote

I’ve gotten in the habit of attach meeting notes and brainstorming documents to my Evernote notebooks. They’re editable from the notebook and sync to all my computers and my phone, which is incredibly handy. One limitation that I’ve found is that it’s impossible to create a brand new document within Evernote… until now!

This AppleScript creates new files in the currently selected/viewed note, based on file templates you create. These templates are just documents of any sort that you put into the “New File Templates” folder in your documents folder. (This folder name can be edited as a script property.) When you run the script, it will let you select from those templates, set your file name, and then you’ll have a new file right there in your note! Easy peasy!

Note that you may want a premium Evernote account in order to handle the upload size of adding lots of files.
