Idea

My problem: I would find it very useful to be able to convert a note into a word-document or similar text files which to my knowledge you cannot at the moment.

The proposed solution: Add a feature under the "Share" menu on a note named "Convert to file" or something like that which creates a file with your note.

Evernote can export to HTML just fine.

Microsoft Word can read HTML documents just fine.

Hello all, 

I would really like for EN to be able to export directly to a Word file... I would love to use EN for structuring and writing my books, but I need to be able to convert it to an rtf or plain text or docx for sending to publishers... 

I read in earlier posts that we can export to HTML but I am not finding out how to do this anywhere... is it still possible? If so, then how please?

Thank you, 

Alix

Right click on the note in whatever list view you are in and select Export Note, choose HTML.

@csihilling provided the answer for  EN > HTML

For a single note, I'd probably just use      select all, copy, paste

May or may not get the results you want, but you can open the HTML note in Word and then save it as DOCX when done.

If you have MS Office installed, this will give to the best results.

In Evernote, share the note as an email - send it to yourself, specifically to your MS Outlook Client.

Then open this email (in Outlook) and save it as an MHT file.

Open the MHT format file with MS Word.

This way you'll keep font and images. However, the images will be too large in the word document, so you'll have to resize them.

 

If you export to MHT directly from Evernote, the images do not always appear when opening with MS Word.

 

Summary

Evernote >> email >> Outlook >> MHT >> Word

The original ask is a great one.  I am a consultant and almost all my clients use the Office Suite so I need to send note content via Word Documents.  Given the ubiquity of the Office suite this seems like minimum functionality.  Otherwise I need to use One Note to ensure compatibility which I would like to avoid.

I tried the export to HTML and Word could not read the file.  The cut and paste to a Word document results in wasted time reformatting all the information.

Thank you.

I also lived in a MS Word world, and most of my notes have word documents as attachments.

Mostly, I use mail to send note content; I think the format is html based and seems to work well
I also send urls which link back to the note.  This gives the receiver access to the note and any document attachments

A must have.  Bear allows multiple exports - Markdown, HTML, PDF, RTF, Word, JPG.  Evernote is really behind the times here.  Need to allow easy export in a variety of formats.

I tried to install Bear on my Windows computer.

Um...

Why is that?

I use Evernote to store files of many formats (HTML, PDF, RTF, Word/Pages, JPG, Excel/Numbers, Audio, Video ...).  Basically any format.

The note format (enml/html) works for me; it's ubiquitous.

I agree. Evernote should have a simple "export to docx." There's no excuse for lacking this. When I export to html, most of the time Word cannot open it. Says the document must be corrupted. C'mon guys and gals, this is a much-needed addition to Evernote.
