Gathering notes into a single file -- how to in Evernote?


Recommended Posts

I am searching for a tool to gather together a bunch of notes with a given tag into a single file, ideally for MS  Word, but that is not absolutely necessary as long as I can export to that.

My main  use case is creating text snippets -- each one from a phrase to multiple pages -- and then gathering together all the snippets with a given tag in a single file that I can edit into a written piece. Nice to have images, web pages, videos, etc as well, but creating my own text snippets by writing or capture is the must-have use.

How, in Evernote, would I gather the tagged snippets into a single file?

Thanks. --David

On my Mac, I can select a bunch of notes, and am presented with a merge box404589100_ScreenShot2018-11-26at15_57_49.png.9e8ef4bd0117cb3f1c3b65bbf20c7751.png

This will merge the notes into a single note.  
No export > word function, but I can convert to pdf or copy/paste

Hi.  Two thoughts on this - If you want to keep your notes as separate items either

  1. select all the notes and print to PDF.  I think this generates one PDF file with all the content.  Or, 
  2. select all the notes and copy them to a separate notebook to preserve their individual identities before merging (or get the separate notes back from the Trash after the merge...)

DTLow -- thanks for the suggestion. However, I cannot make it work. I can select a tag and see the notes, but I see no way to select multiple notes -- moving the cursor automatically highlights the note hovered over, leaving no way to select multiple notes, much less merge them.

If you're using the web interface, then you're going to face a different problem: how to export to MS Word? The web client doesn't do exports, as far as I know. Am I missing something here?

Hmmn.  Using the web interface won't allow you to select multiple notes - neither the 'old' (Firefox) version of that UI or the 'new' (Chrome) versions don't have that option.  Is it possible for you to download and install the desktop/ laptop version from Evernote.com?
