Can anyone help me with indexing Evernote file?

I have the last version of Evernote from their website (not the app store
version) and Foxtrot 6,5b2,.

I can find the Evernote local storage in Application Support but there are
many folders there and I have no idea where to point Foxtrot

Thanks

FoxTrot has a predefined location for Evernote, but it is outdated, as Evernote now stores its data elsewhere. So, this predefined location either do not show at all, or does not contain your current Evernote data.

To index Evernote 7, add this location to the "custom locations" tab of the "manage indices" window: {home folder}/Library/CoreData/com.evernote.Evernote.

However, it does not seem that Evernote has a full support of Spotlight, and as FoxTrot uses the Spotlight importers to index third party applications data, it seems you will only be able to search in notes titles, and not in the contents of the notes. Also, clicking on a found Evernote note will only display its icon; option-click on it to see the text that has been indexed (i.e. the note title).
