Importing RTF/Doc problem...

Recommended Posts

Ok so I know that I can import one by one to get it to NOT do it as an attachment, or I can use the import folder to get them all as separate notes. I did this and it worked great but I messed up and had to start over. Now, no matter what I do, the files are imported as attachments. Even if I drag and drop one individual file. 


Any solution to this?

OK - well done;  now - how?


Yeah thought I should have said something but it was a dumb error on my part. 


Evernote won't do it for .doc files, and out of 2606 files, 41 of them were .doc and the rest were .rtf which works fine. However it was doing it for .rtf files also for a brief bit, and that was solved by using the task manager (ctrl+shift+esc) to end process on Evernote and Evernote tray (not sure if tray made a difference) because they were there even if I closed evernote. 


LASTLY..in case anyone searches and find this. I was importing a folder with 2606 files in it and Evernote would crash eventually, and keep crashing when you opened it. The files were just too many, and the only way to get Evernote to open was to rename the folder so it couldn't find it. I figured out how to make it work. Make a duplicate of the folder you had the files in and import this folder, however set Evernote to delete the file after. It still crashed now and then until it had them all, but when you opened it back up it wasn't dealing with 2600 files, just the ones left. That made it work. I also made the notebook I added it to an offline one, but don't know if that helps. I then copied them to a synchronized notebook.

The 2,600+ files might have maxed out your monthly upload limit,  so importing in bulk is always best done to a local notebook,  then you can manage the transfer of notes to a a synced notebook.


Thanks for the explanation!
