FM's text field will never do what Evernote does - FM is a database so it stores data by data type. Text in a text field, pictures in a container field. So if Evernote is your golden standard then you need to look elsewhere or find a way to more intuitively integrate FM with Evernote (realizing that some of the data will be stored in Evernote then and not in the FM database).
Your "ask" is very big. It can all be built, but it is not a small undertaking. Your best bet is to start small and build from that. Start with the thing that will give you the most value quickly.
Thanks wimdecorte. I know this is a big ask. I will expand further, it is a need for structured data in a ever largely more unstructured world. I keep most of my world in Evernote, many Notebooks and use Tags extensively. But I have need of a bridge to my Contacts world. And to make the Contacts world stronger which is why I keep coming back to FM.
The Contact part is straightforward, and then capturing picklists or data entry selections. Noting Contact relations etc... Manifesting connections (use this link) to go the other contact info sources. If FM can't accept and then act upon a URL in a note that may be my undoing. But Script Triggers I guess can accommodate this though.
I found I posted about the Links more than a year ago. Do Note fields support clickable links?
I will try to prototype the big piece of what I wish and see what is then available on FM Go. Thanks for your comments.
This idea of a text field supporting clickable links sounds like something that would be an ideal project for http://www.modularfilemaker.org/
I suspect that there would be performance overheads if it was applied to a text field at all times, but if it could be triggered at time of desired use (ie. when the user wants to actually go to the link) to evaluate the text in the field and then return links that would be something that lots of developers would find extremely useful.
This thread caught my attention because of similar interests. Any update on finding a solution?
