Feature request: Better support for Apple Notes App

Talk, speculate, discuss, pontificate. As long as it pertains to Hazel.

Hi there,

in my opinion, the Apple Notes App is now ready to be a substitute for Evernote. At least for what I do.
Hazel helps me to organize my pdfs.
To do that I need AppleScript.
Now I want to move to Apple Notes. But I do not like to mess around with Apple Script.
It would be nice, if there was a clickable method for Apple Notes:
"Create a new note", "Add pdfs to note" and things like that.

Thank you for your great app!

Cheers
Mike

What would the note contain?

In my case just the pdf.
For example:
On 10th of October I would get a bill from noodlesoft.
If hazel recognizes it, it should be named „2019-10-17 - noodlesoft bill.pdf“,
creates a Note named „2019-10-17 - noodlesoft bill“ and puts the pdf inside it.

Will consider it but not really sure how common a case this is. For now, AppleScript is your best bet.
