Thank you!  That import with the desktop app worked perfectly!  I've been looking around to see which app to go with, but since everything imported I will give Evernote a "go".

Here was my process.

 

  • Go to Catch
  • Under your username, upper right, select the Export menu item
  • Click under Download on Zip Archive File
  • Have it Download
  • Extract the Zip File
  • Go into Evernote Desktop
  • Under File Select Import
  • Select all your .enex files for upload

The format of the extract makes it difficult because I found myself having to import them individually.

 

I created a python script to ease the catch notes import. The script merges all the notes into one All Notes Gathered folder. From there you can import them all in one go.

 

I posted the script to a github repository.

Thanks so much Dave! I found this useful.

 

Also thought I would mention a feature i found for Windows users who don't want to import one note at a time with that you didn't mention:

 

On Evernote for Windows, if you go to Tools and then to "Import Folders..." you can just select the folder created from your script, and it will import the entire contents of the folder, and bam you're done.  

 

 

NOTE: this method seems to remove the original date of the note and have all notes showing with the date imported instead. not ideal. :/ I might have to find a mac to use to import them all at once.

I have recently imported catch notes to evernote. But the tagging was not happening automatically. So, I wrote a simple script to do it.

The script in the following URL will fetch each imported post and create evernote tag for each "#<tag>" found in title or content.

The import works but the catch file does not have the jpeg images just an HTML file with an inbedded image. I had to down loade each pic, what a pain

Hi Shenanagans,

 

Thanks, I'm glad you liked the script.

 

I have to say, I overlooked the fact that Catch Notes already includes a per space notes.enex file. You can import it that way. I bet the note dates will work.

 

I've updated my script too. It only brings over the space notes.enex files and renames them as "Space Name".enex files. And, attachments are supported.... They are all brought over into one attachment directory.

 

Regards,

Dave

  • Go to Catch
  • Under your username, upper right, select the Export menu item
  • Click under Download on Zip Archive File

Hi all,

 

I've updated my python script at https://github.com/d...EvernoteDesktop and I'm reannouncing it here.

 

The script now works on your unextracted Catch Notes Export.zip file and creates a custom extract folder.

 

In the extract folder there are the following:

* An "All Notes.enex"

* A {Space}.enex file, per space

* An attachments folder with all your attachments with the title of the note as the file name. This way you can look at the file name, type the title into evernote search and re-attach the attachment to the related note.

 

Works on all OSs.

 

Regards,

Dave

Hi Padremaldito,

 

I created an issue for this: https://github.com/d...esktop/issues/2

 

I believe I fixed it. Please download the lastest from github at https://github.com/d...hive/master.zip and see if it works for you.

That was helpful, was able to import everything fast. 

I have written an article with the same steps with some images so people don't get confused. View it here: http://techkunji.com...-evernote-steps

I added a jpg to Catch, then exported my notes from Catch and ran my script. The jpg came out fine.

Of course, I've tried this method and the python script. With both systems  I get the error MISSING_NOTE_TITLE with an specific folder, the others has no problems.

I also have the problem of error MISSING_NOTE_TITLE. I suspect that it might be with notes with only voice memo. Please suggest how to import those? I have quite a lot of them. 

 

Thanks,

Hi yubrshen,

 

My first thought is go to the note.enex of one of the notes that is generating the MISSING_NOTE_TITLE error message. Open it up in the text editor, compare it to another note.enex that didn't create the issue.

 

If is just a matter of missing text in one of the xml tags, try entering some text, save the file, and attempt to import it. If it is a whole tag that is missing, try adding the tag and reimporting it.

 

When we come to an understanding of the problem, I'd like to include the fix in my script. So. please keep me posted.

 

I offer to help. If you'd like, let me see one of those note.enex files.

 

Regards,

Dave

Hi Dave, 

 
Thanks for offering help! 
 
I did some experiment. It seems that my hypothesis of the cause of the problem of MISSING_NOTE_TITLE is not correct. I created a voice note in Catch, download it, it worked fine with the import process. 
 
I'll try to locate the root cause of the problem first. 
 
In the meantime, my biggest wish is to have automated import support of attachments. I have more than 1,000 attachments, mainly voice notes to import, manual procedure is out of the question. 
 
Again, thanks for your help. 
 
Yu
PS. I've looked at your Python code briefly, it seems that you're only handling the first zip file in the current directory where your code runs, but the code have the potential to handle all those Catch zip file in the current directory with some minor tweeking? Am I right?
