Why does Agenda open whenever I open Apple Notes?

notes

#1

the title says it all really but i could put it in another way : whenever i open apple notes, agenda also opens and pushes itself to the front. is this a bug or is it a ‘feature’? i would like to decide for my-so-called-self which software i open… how can i fix this?


#2

That’s really bizar, how do you open Apple Notes, by double clicking the icon in the Applications folder?


#3

anytime i open apple notes. i think.
i’ll run some tests. you’ve not seen this before?


#4

i guess i better upgrade to agenda 5 first (i am still running 4) :stuck_out_tongue:


#5

did i mention BOTH apple notes AND agenda open?

now running 5.2 - opening notes by double clicking on the notes application icon opens both notes AND agenda.

my mac os = 10.14.4

That is extremely odd. Never heard of such a thing.

Any chance you could make a screen capture video of this issue? Maybe it will give a clue.

We are perplexed, to be honest. Perhaps try dragging Agenda to the trash, and empty trash. Then reinstall. (Your data is safe somewhere else)


#12

trashing and reinstalling agenda didn’t fix the problem.
i have another machine. i’ll try installing agenda on it to see if the same thing happens and report back.


#13

Is there a link or something in the Apple Notes that somehow triggers Agenda to launch? Perhaps a link into agenda.

Does it help to remove Agenda, then launch Notes, and then install Agenda after?


#14

cracked it! there was a link to an agenda note in one of my notes. or maybe it was embedded? i can’t remember how it got there :stuck_out_tongue:

this is what it looked like https://app.box.com/s/0h3oxkn9o8t8epeai449xghs0lcwhvjk

remove it and hey presto no more agenda auto-opening. weird though that notes should think that is useful behaviour since it doesn’t bring the note with the link or embedded agenda note to the foreground or anything - just agenda itself. and not that note in agenda either…

mystery solved. thanks guys.

Wow, bizarre, glad to hear you found the cause!

I have the exact same issue. I assumed that there was an Agenda link in an Apple Note, but I couldn’t find any links at first. However, I found one note with a weblink attachment labeled “Note”. Double-clicking that attachment opens Agenda. I thought the problem might also be because I am still using Sierra (about to upgrade) on this computer and Apple Notes keeps reminding me to upgrade.
