My main use for Drafts is as the creation stage in my GTD workflow. I use on an iPhone, iPad and Mac to create Inbox items in Drafts that then get sent to Evernote for onward processing. This workflow has worked perfectly through each upgrade of Drafts - until now.
I have two problems after upgrading:
I have several near-identical actions, each of which creates an Evernote note with a defined title and body. The only difference is each has a different keyword at the start of the title: e.g. Personal - [[title]]. Some of these actions work OK, others just provoke a !action redbox.
Drafts for iMac (which is newly installed), found my actions but says Action not supported. Just to experiment, I created a new Action with the same action. drafts for Mac allowed me to create the Evernote action, but still says it’s not supported.
Problem #1 - Can you post details of what is in the action log for one of these failures along with the content of the draft, and a link to the action you are using?
Problem #2 - that’s going to be to do with the compatibility. Not everything works on both platforms. Some action steps only work on some platforms; though for Evernote, I think there should be some workarounds possible with x-callback-url and/or AppleScript.
I’ll re-create and error and post here.
Re: #2, I’m not that fussed if it’s a faff to work around. I’ll just delete Drafts for Mac: I’ve only ever used it on iOS in the past. Unless the functionality is the same on all platforms, the additional app of no use to me: there’s no way my old brain can hold differences in usage between platforms
That error (“No note content to upload”) is because you have a title (first line) and no additional text in the draft. Evernote will not accept a blank note, it generates an error. If you use it on a more typical note, with text in the [[body]], it should work fine.
There are ways to make cross-platform Evernote actions - some details in the Evernote integration guide. It’s unfortunate that Evernote’s own cross-platform support is not ideal.
