I was thinking, I have all my information in Evernote and majority of my notes are manuals in PDF form for my work.  I know I can click on the note and save the attachment out of Evernote, but I was wondering is there a way of do it automatically i.e. every month I export just the PDF's out of my Evernote Database.


I use a mac, so if there are any solution known, could it be mac orientated please.


Many thanks in advance

Hi Mark. You can press cmd + a to select all notes in the view and export them as .html to get the attachments out. It only takes a few seconds. However, I wouldn't be surprised if a third-party integration could do this as well automatically. Maybe Cloud HQ?

Hi Mark,


Yes - this is possible with cloudHQ - you basically need to setup one-way sync from Evernote to a folder in some other cloud service (Dropbox, SkyDrive, Google Drive, or Box). So each time you add/modify a note, the note will be copied/exported.


And if you want only PDF attachments to be exported (not other attachment types or content of notes), please email us at support@cloudHQ.net - we have a special option for these kind of setup but you do need to contact support to enable that for your account.


And here is a short video how to setup continuous one-way sync / export of your Evernote notes:

A quick work around to saving Evernotes to PDF is to download the Evernote Skitch app. Open the note in Skitch and it opens as a PDF. All you have to do it save the note to your Evernote account. It imeadiently shows up in your notes as a PDF which you can then save to your computer.

I have just written a program to export my PDFs out of evernote into a directory structure. It creates a new folder for each note, and inside of the folder, it saves the pdf file with its original file name, and creates seperate plain text files for Title, Notes (typed text part of the notes), and Tags. This way I could keep my PDFs and not lose the tagging I have done. Would anyone else be interested in this? I wrote it for myself, but I thought maybe others would like to have it too. If so I'll see about releasing it.

You can also just select all your notes and click the "Export Attachments" button. Easy!
