Evernote Bundle input type of html results in loading of message in a separate window after execution

Reported by Michael Dwyer | March 1st, 2016 @ 05:57 PM

I'm loving your application!

I tweaked the Evernote bundle Add\ With\ Summary.mmCommand to change the input from "canonical" to "html".
I then changed the AppleScript note create command from "with text" to "with html"

This has resulted in beautiful notes in Evernote! No complaints there.

The one weird thing is that upon creating the note and opening it (like normal), it also jumps back to MailMate and opens the message in a separate window. I minor annoyance at most, but I just thought you might want to know or could tell me if that was intended behavior. If I change input back to "canonical" it does not open the mail message in a separate window.

Thanks for your time!

    It was one email in particular it seems. It's not doing it with any other emails so far!

    If you are interested, what's the best way to send you a copy of the email? It would actually be interesting to trigger this behavior on purpose for something things.

    I don't see any obvious reasons why the html input should affect this, but it would be nice to be able to reproduce it. You can send me the bundle and the email using “Help ▸ Send Feedback” in MailMate.

    Thanks in advance!

    I just sent the email via the Send Feedback option. Please let me know if you need anything else!

    I have had one or two other emails demonstrate the same behavior, but most do not. I'll start collecting them and you can let me know if you want to see more of them (or something that don't trigger the behavior).

    • State changed from “new” to “closed”

    The problem is not MailMate. The problem is that Evernote tries to open all cid: URLs. This is the method used in HTML emails to reference image attachments. MailMate supports opening these URLs.

    The best workaround would be to strip the cid: URLs from the HTML before sending it to Evernote. I Googled and found this solution which you can probably adopt (search for cid:).

    You are welcome to report it as a bug to Evernote.

    (It might be better to use the raw input mode, save the input to a file, and then add this file to Evernote. If that works then images and attachments might be included.)
