Backup/export notes


Recommended Posts

In the new Evernote how do I export all notes?  In the old version I could save all notes at once.  In the new Evernote it says I'm limited to 50 mnotes at a time.

Version 10 set a temporary limit of 50 notes - we expect/hope to see that limit removed   

In the meantime, I'm running the Legacy version and can still do a full export

I have an older local version on my computer but it is messed up and I want to back up everything before I upgrade!

I would suggest that you reinstall your old version first and get that going and backed up before trying the new version.  Even then you can run both the old and new in parallel.

Can you export from the web based evernote application?

You can, but as @DTLow mentions above, there is a current limitation of 50 notes.  We expect this will change in the future.  Limiting export to 50 notes makes no sense.

I would also like to know, how can I export my notebooks as a local backup for security purposes, as was also possible with earlier versions of Evernote?

In my opinion this is a basic function, from a security point of view a pure cloud solution without a backup option is completely forbidden for serious use.

What about export to html  It seems to have vanished.

Any solution for this guys?

Confirmed - export to HTML is pending implementation; no timeline specified

In the meantime, I'm using the Legacy version

DTLow - thanks so much for providing the link with the Legacy version. This did the trick. I was becoming really uncomfortable with the inability to back up every few months or so.

I'm really taken aback that I can't select more than 50 notes or export a backup. If anybody knows how to back up 10.4.4 on Mac, I'd love to know how. I have over 6000 notes, and it seems like in 10.4.4 there's no way for me to back it up. Just one of many HORRIBLE changes in 10.4.4:

The disappearance of the sync button, the burying of checkbox formatting clear formatting, etc. in a side menu, and the disappearance of the ability to export scanned business cards to contacts... All huge steps backward.
 
I'd like to be able to customize the left sidebar to have "all notes" above shortcuts. I have a lot of shortcuts, and I'm constantly scrolling down to get to "all notes." That's a theme with this new version: more hunting, scrolling, and searching hidden menus. Why is so much stuff buried? Why does it take two or three clicks to do what used to take one click?
 
Evernote is supposed to be a productivity app! I'm spending more time UNdoing the automatic formatting in lists (my to-do list for example) than I am entering information.The automatic indentation in lists, and the automatic strikethrough when I hit the return key is incredibly frustrating.
 
I'm tempted to downgrade, but if something goes wrong I haven't been able to make a back up. #Catch22
 
#everbetterevernote ? Seriously? #everworseevernote !
