  1. I would also suggest to check out ExportNote. It can export all your notes to HTML and/or PDF, including attachments and non-synchronized/local notebooks: http://www.exportnote.com. It also preserves the organization in stack -> notebook -> note.

    Mandatory disclaimer: I'm the developer of ExportNote. I built this application after realizing there was no easy and reliable way to export all my data with in single click. Feel free to contact me if you have any question or request of feature!

    It is not clear how your system, "ExportNote", would be useful in restoring lost or changed Note in an Evernote account.

    ENEX is the official format to import a Note that includes its tags and other metadata (but not Notebook).  How would your system address this?

    ExportNote cannot and will never restore your notes. The application is read-only by design, and we will never make any change to your Evernote account. The reason is that Evernote does not provide any reliable way to update local notes (i.e.: not-synchronized) without altering the internal database. To keep your data safe and secure, we decided to never make any change to Evernote data.

    You can still export the notes to HTML and use Evernote's import feature to import your notes back to your Evernote account, but I would only consider this option as a last resort.

  3. I had the same question for years, and I ended up building my own solution. You may want to check it out: http://www.exportnote.com. ExportNote can export all your notes to HTML and PDF (including local notebooks) while preserving the organization in stacks, notebooks, and notes. Attachments are also exported. Please don't hesitate to contact me know if you have any question or request of new features!

  4. Alternatively, you may want to use ExportNote (http://www.exportnote.com) to export all your notes to PDF with a single click. My answer is a bit biased since I'm the developer of this application, but I built ExportNote to solve this very same problem: I couldn't find any easy way to export all my notes to PDF (including local notebooks) while preserving the organization in stacks, notebooks, and notes. Let me know if you have any question or request of new features!

  5. Hi All,

    I hope you're having a great weekend. The last few months have been particularly eventful for ExportEvernote ExportNote: new features, new website, many bug fixes, and a new name! Thank you all for your amazing support and great ideas.

    The new version of ExportNote now includes:

    • Batch export PDF for both Mac and Windows
    • Option to select the notebook(s) to export
    • Option to export attributes (tags, creation time, update time, etc.)
    • Better support of non-english locales
    • Many bug fixes

    You can download the app today on: http://www.exportnote.com/.

    P.S.: Enter MAY50 for a 50% discount :) Valid until May 15.


  6. The main advantage of ExportEvernote over the built-in tool is that it keeps your notes organized: each stack, notebook, and note is saved into its own folder, like in Evernote. The built-in tool exports all the notes in a single folder. Another advantage is that each note is exported using a nice CSS template, making them more appealing and easier to read. Other features are also coming soon, including the export to PDF, and the support of links and tags.

  7. @aileronguy: I was exactly in the same position a few years ago. With thousands of notes and +50 notebooks (local and synchronized), being able to export/backup all my data in an open and shareable format (HTML) is clearly a major concern. I couldn't find any good solution to do it, so I finally decided to create my own App. My suggestion is obviously a little bit biased, but I though you may want to give it a try: http://www.exportevernote.com/.

  8. Thanks all for your support. This is really motivating!


    I just released a new version of the app (Mac and Windows) that includes many bug fixes and a new simplified UI. You can get it today on http://www.exportevernote.com/. I will try to find some time during the summer to add the export to PDF!


    @aysla: thanks for the suggestion, I don't see any problem adding the meta-data in the next version :)

  9. Thanks for your feedback gazumped. Since Evernote already uses plain text files to store notes, exporting all the data to HTML shouldn't take more space than Evernote's own directory on your hard drive. However PDF could be significantly larger. Regarding your own DB, it's not easy to say, it depends on the way the data is encoded/compressed... If size is an issue, I guess you could export all the notes in HTML and ZIP the whole directory. This could also be an interesting feature to add. :)

  10. Hello all Evernote lovers,


    I am just curious if anyone would be interested in an offline application to export and backup all your notes from Evernote to HTML/PDF. No monthly fee, no complex process, no need to share your password with anyone. Just a simple application to export your data in one click. I wrote a very simple tool for my personal needs and I will be happy to share a first beta version and add a few features if needed.


    Pleae let me know if you are interested :)
