How to move your notes and more from Evernote



Evernote has long been the number one choice for taking notes, tracking documents, organizing projects, and generally finding the place you want to find something later.

In recent years, however, Evernote has had a good reputation having suffered from an aging interface, increased fees, a number of layoffs, and a new CEO. While there is no indication that the application has disappeared in the foreseeable future, it still has (according to most reports) a few hundred million users, but it does not hurt to have a Plan B available if you choose decide bail.

Luckily, there are a number of applications such as Microsoft OneNote, Zoho Notebook, Simplenote, and Google Keep that try to insist on having your ideas, ideas, and other things. In this article, you will learn how (or if) you can migrate your Evernote data to one of these applications.

Regardless of whether you are planning a change or not, it is a good idea to know how to export your data data just to have an independent backup of that information just in case.


  Exporting Evernote

Exporting Evernote Data

Evernote lets you split your notes into separate notebooks. When exporting your data, each notebook must be exported to a separate Evernote .enex file (or you can export to an HTML file if you wish).

You can only export data to the local Evernote file. Application for PC or export Macs; You can not do this from the online version. To try it, I used a Mac with Evernote version 7.9 installed on it. So go ahead; The process for a PC is very similar:

  • In the left menu of Evernote, click Notebooks or select View> Notebook from the top menu. This will give you a list of all Evernote notebooks in the main window.
  • Select which notebooks you want to export. (If you want to export your entire Evernote file, select them all.)
  • Right-click the selected notebooks and choose Notes> Export Notebook Name & # 39; You can also go to the main menu and select File> Export Notes.
  • In the pop-up window, enter the name you want to give to your export file and select the folder in which you want to save the file. You can also decide if you want to export the associated tags (if you have used them). Click on "Save".

Now that you have your data, where do you want to put it? I've looked at four of the best-known Evernote alternatives-Microsoft OneNote, Zoho Notebook, Simplenote, and Google Keep-to find out how to move your data the easiest way (assuming you can). Two of them, OneNote and Notebook, offer importers to make things as easy as possible for them. Simplenote provides an easy way to import your .enex files once you've exported them from Evernote. And hold … well … it will not happen.


  Microsoft OneNote migrated from Evernote

Microsoft OneNote

Microsoft OneNote may be the most used application compared to Evernote, and Microsoft has made explicit use of this by offering explicit instructions and providing its users with an importer is going to make things as easy as possible.

There is one exception: If you use the Evernote client on a Mac and have downloaded your version of Evernote from the Mac App Store and not from the Evernote site, you can not use the importer to automatically import your data directly , Instead, you'll need to use the link in the importer (see below) to help you import your Evernote .enex files.

However, assume you have the correct version:

  • Go to the Evernote to OneNote Transition page and download the importer. (Depending on the page, it works for PCs with Windows 7 or higher or Macs with OS X El Capitan 10.11 or higher.)
  • Make sure your Evernote desktop copy is closed. Otherwise, the importer simply tells you that you have successfully installed it, but can not continue.
  • The importer then gets down to work and creates .enex files for each of your notebooks (but not your OneNote account).
  • The importer then asks you to select the notebooks you want to select. All notebooks are automatically selected, but you can also select specific ones. If a problem has occurred during import, you can use a shortcut to import your own .enex file.
  • If you have not signed in to OneNote, you will be prompted. Otherwise, click Import.
  • Once the process is complete, you will be notified of any notes that could not be imported. In the case of OneNote, no reminders or encrypted content are imported.

In my case, the move to OneNote worked well. Each Evernote notebook has been moved to a OneNote notebook, and all of my PDFs, images, text, and other content (with the exception of a reminder) were instantly recognizable. Because OneNote divides its notebooks into tabbed folders, and Evernote does not, most of my new OneNote notebooks had a tab. One with 114 notes, however, was divided into three tabs. I'm not sure why.

You can import the data into Zoho's iOS, Android, or macOS clients, or use the online version (I used them the last time). On the way, Zoho is threatened with some warnings about being patient, because of Evernote's quirks. But I had no difficulties.

  • In Zoho Notebook, click Settings in the right menu.
  • In the Settings window at the bottom of the list, scroll to Migrate from Evernote.
  • The next page is a warning to be patient until all Evernote data is migrated to Zoho Notebook will send you an email to signal that the migration is complete.
  • You will be directed to your Evernote account (and asked to sign in if it is not), where you must authorize Zoho to access your account. You can choose the duration of the approval up to one year. I decided for a day. The migration process then begins.
  • Unfortunately, I have not found a way to select certain notebooks, and I have a lot in my Evernote account. As a result, I received the e-mail stating that the migration was completed about 15 hours later.

As with OneNote, Zoho Notebook was able to make all of my Evernote content important and, as far as I could tell, mimicking my notebook structure. The only difference was that, unlike Evernote, there were no "stacked" folders.

Once again, Mac users have one drawback: The Simplenote version that you download from the Mac App Store does not support import. You must use a version that is available on the Github site. (This can be particularly confusing because the link to the Mac App Store is on the Simplenote main page.)

Let's say you're using a Mac and have not already installed Simplenote:

  • Go to the Github page? ˅. Scroll down until you see the Simplenote macOS-1.5.0.dmg file. (The version number may change.)
  • Click on the link and download the file. Install it on your Mac.
  • Go to the App menu and select File> Import Notes from the App menu. You can import Simplenote, Evernote, or plain text files.
  • On the next screen, you can either drag your .enex file into the import box or click on the box and select the file. The import then begins.

Because Simplenote does not use a notebook format, your notebook categorizations will no longer be displayed. To work around this, you can create tags for each notebook before you export them from Evernote. You can import the tags and search for each set of notes in Simplenote this way.

Simplenote does not import images or other media. So, if you used Evernote to collect business card images or other photos, you can & # 39; re out of luck.

Google Keep

Google Keep is a very simple and useful note application – if you start from scratch. There is currently no way to move data from Evernote (or any other app) to Google Keep, even if you wanted to.

It's always hard to get used to a new application if you've put a lot of time, effort and content into an application like Evernote. However, if you can easily switch from one app to another – as with at least three of these notebook apps – the hardest part is done.
