Notebook Directory Print/Export

Recommended Posts

I want to set up my document/topic folders in other drives to mirror the Notebook structure I have set up in Evernote. 

As a step toward doing this, I would like to have an editable document of the entire EN structure.  So far, I am finding no way to do this other than an image capture (using Snagit), but every conversion from the generated .png to Word I have tried (and I have tried many) results in an unusably imperfect document.  Converting to .pdf and then to Word has the same result.  Attempting to print directly to pdf or OneNote from EN directly (with just the notebook list appearing on screen) prints whatever the first note in the first notebook is.

By now, I suppose I could have re-typed the list from a printout of the captured image in the time I've spent trying to do this, but I was hoping to avoid that manual labor (and also to be able to have an editable master list generated from EN at any time in the future rather than tracking changes manually in multiple places).

Thoughts, anyone?

I can generate this using Applescript on a Mac   
I have minimal notebooks, but it's also useful for a tag directory

I could also do a screen capture; ocr'd to a text file

Which Evernote client are you using? Windows? Mac? Android? iOS? Web?

I don't know of any way to do this from the Evernote clients on Windows, web, or Android. In Windows, you can use the Evernote provided command-line ENScript program to list your notebooks, but it doesn't show any stacks that you have or the stack/notebook structure.

Might be doable on Mac, bit I'm not the expert there. [beat to the punch by @DTLow]

Thanks for a quick response.  I'm on a PC, which I probably could have mentioned from the start.

Hi.  I wasn't interested in mirroring my notebook structure,  but I did recently get a list of my notebooks while reordering Evernote.  I had a slightly specialist (and somewhat roundabout) approach on a Windows 10 laptop - my database is regularly backed up to individual files per notebook by Backupery and saved to an external drive. That dated folder then contains all my notebooks as named folders.  I used Karen's Directory Printer to print that folder + sub-folder names to a file and edited the text file that resulted.  Sounds a bit more complicated than it was...  but not much.

Sweet.  Took me a couple of minutes to get the settings right in Karen's, but then print to PDF, export to EN note.
