I’m a big fan of the “new note” and “paste into Evernote” global hot keys in Evernote.
This week I added to that the global hotkey CTRL + ALT + T to create a new To Do item from any application.
The hotkey is made in AutoHotkey (widely used freeware macro utility).
The script to add is:
WinWait, All Notebooks - ruudhein - Evernote
Now, when you press CTRL + ALT + T, the script opens Evernote by “pressing” CTRL + SHIFT + N, puts the focus on the note by again pressing CTRL + SHIFT + N, waits one second to allow Evernote to prepare the new note, and then it inserts a checkbox. Now you can start writing your note :)
