Hello,

 

I was thinking, I have all my information in Evernote and majority of my notes are manuals in PDF form for my work.  I know I can click on the note and save the attachment out of Evernote, but I was wondering is there a way of do it automatically i.e. every month I export just the PDF's out of my Evernote Database.

 

I use a mac, so if there are any solution known, could it be mac orientated please.

 

Many thanks in advance

 

Regards

 

Mark

Hi Mark. You can press cmd + a to select all notes in the view and export them as .html to get the attachments out. It only takes a few seconds. However, I wouldn't be surprised if a third-party integration could do this as well automatically. Maybe Cloud HQ?

Hi Mark,

 

Yes - this is possible with cloudHQ - you basically need to setup one-way sync from Evernote to a folder in some other cloud service (Dropbox, SkyDrive, Google Drive, or Box). So each time you add/modify a note, the note will be copied/exported.

 

And if you want only PDF attachments to be exported (not other attachment types or content of notes), please email us at support@cloudHQ.net - we have a special option for these kind of setup but you do need to contact support to enable that for your account.

 

And here is a short video how to setup continuous one-way sync / export of your Evernote notes:

A quick work around to saving Evernotes to PDF is to download the Evernote Skitch app. Open the note in Skitch and it opens as a PDF. All you have to do it save the note to your Evernote account. It imeadiently shows up in your notes as a PDF which you can then save to your computer.

I have just written a program to export my PDFs out of evernote into a directory structure. It creates a new folder for each note, and inside of the folder, it saves the pdf file with its original file name, and creates seperate plain text files for Title, Notes (typed text part of the notes), and Tags. This way I could keep my PDFs and not lose the tagging I have done. Would anyone else be interested in this? I wrote it for myself, but I thought maybe others would like to have it too. If so I'll see about releasing it.

This is somewhat related to this post but my advice for people who are new to Evernote, go with OneNote 2013 that is part of the Office Suite instead.  

 

With One Note, your notes aren't trapped in the program.   You can export sections and pages as PDF or .DOCX.  AMAZING CONCEPT!!   

 

No need for  a third party and its easily accessible.  Why waste your time paying yearly for Evernote when you can get the entire Office 365 suite for close to the same price?   

 

My frustration with Evernote has stemmed from major problems recently with the Android app.   I edit my notes and they don't update properly.  I've had no luck fixing this and Evernote support hasn't been much help.   The point is I've never had problems with Keep and Onenote.    

 

Basically Evernote needs to provide and easier way to export notes.   I regret the decision of going with Evernote in the first place but my computer was down and they were the best choice at the time.  

 

Evernote is fine for very basic note sharing every now and then but TRUST ME don't use it for any thing serious.  You'll regret it.

Easier than bringing up the file menu and selecting 'Export All Notes'?

Funny, because I say the same thing about OneNote :D Surely, in 2014, software that wishes to be taken seriously should be multi-platform, functional on mobile/tablets, and fast -- none of which fit the bill for OneNote. (Windows app has way more functions than web/Mac, mobile apps severely cut down, and sync is slow). Evernote meets all the above criteria (and I've had no issues on my Android tablet, and it's a Nook HD+, which is generally regarded as a pile of excrement in comparison to... pretty much every other tablet in the market).

 

Also, Evernote is half the price of Office 365.

I'm just about to get the Fujitsu ScanSnap and really wanted to use it with Evernote but also wanted to be able to keep the scanned PDFs locally. I've been searching high and low for the ability to get PDFs out of Evernote as it is not evident. I'd read this thread two or three times and still didn't get anywhere. BUT Jackolicious and Adjusting are correct! It can be done, quickly and simply, just not intuitively!

All you need to do in Evernote (Desktop version) is go to the Notebook with your PDFs, select all the notes, right click and select Save Attachments. You then select your directory and all PDFs are exported - as PDFs and not as attachments. Really simple! Please Evernote can you include this info in your documentation in a user friendly format. I'm not stupid but couldn't find this anywhere and only found it by looking for the "Export Attachments" option mentioned by Jackolicious (which I didn't find anyway!)  I'm using the Windows version so guess "Export Attachments" may be the Mac Version.

Yes, you can.

Open the Note you want to convert to a PDF.

Right click anywhere inside the body of the note.

Choose "Convert to PDF" in the menu.

 

I hope this helps.

Hi,

I'm using the Web UI (Using Chrome).

I don't have a premium account.

 

Right click only opens the regular browser menu.

 

Other options?

 

Thank You.

I didn't think to ask what you were using.  I do not have an option for you other than the obvious, Print, Scan it to PDF.

Sorry.

Export as html.

Search for "html2pdf" or "htmltopdf", there are plenty ...  standalone software or online tools (don't know if they work if your html is not online... think they don't)

You can also share directly the note on evernoteweb and use those online services.

No.  I am a premium user and I am not able to export a note as a pdf from the web ui.  My desktop application on my Mac allows me to do it though.

You can print it as a PDF using the standard OS PDF printing.

Just see it's also possible with Windows Chrome.

@PHC,

I think it can only be done in Chrome which has built in PDF printer (Or if the user installed on of those Virtual PDF Printers Drivers).

 

Anyhow, Evernote should create PDF exporting feature on their own.

I want to get my 2,000+ notes out of evernote into something editable and useful. The export as .html makes for a pile of crud in my mac, as it has all sorts of supporting files that have to be moved around. I want my notes simply to be notes, attachments saved, etc. PDFs are not an easy fix, either.

Hello everyone. I have a fast solution, although I write too much for everyone to understand. Trust me it's fast. It works only if you have "kingsoft office" (not with other viewers that I have checked. This is a useful android application to view microsoft office and other documents and pdf files on your android device.)
First you open evernote in your android device. Then you find the note you want, in the front page of evernote, where you can see the pictures of your files. If you press on the one you want, a new window should open where your file is being shown as a small rectangular with three dots on the right. If you press these dots evernote will ask you if you want to "view or edit your attachment". Press view and then open it with "kingsoft office". When you open it, on the top of the screen it says "file". Press "file" and then "share". Send it to your email as an attachment. Download it as pdf in any device.

I didn't read all the posts and PHC already beat me to the punch.  

 

@Royi, I did this in Safari.

 

=====================

 

Hey,

 

I needed to do just that, save the file out into a PDF format.

 

I was successful in doing so (on a Mac).

 

1) Select the note/s you would like to export.

2) Go to File->Print Note

3) In the lower left drop down menu, select Save as PDF

4) It was ask you what you would like to name the file and where to put it

5) Click Save

Ive been using evernote for some time now, few year at least. Tbh why would i want to use any 3rd party software for creating pdf out of html? i mean who is going to use html version of an note?

 

Im software engineer and i know that it's not easy to create PDF exactly like HTML, (actually is one of the worst things i ever did) but evernote should support that. at least ugly looking one, just for text.

Still trying to export all notebooks to save as a back-up somewhere else. Have the basic Evernote version. How can I select all "Notebooks" or "Notes" (command A does't seem to work), and then export? Would prefer a text document rather than a PDF, if possible. Can't figure out.

All help appreciated.

As @Sentinel mentioned in an earlier post, you can also right-click or hold Ctrl+click in the body of the note and select "Convert Note to PDF", then download the attachment from within the note (click the downwards arrow icon in the title bar of the PDF attachment in the note).

Are you sure you want to use the pdf/txt format?
It would be ok for a simple note, or even a pdf export of a note with images.
You'd be loosing any other attachments.  You'd possibly lose pdf attachments.

I would think the html format would be more inclusive.
Evernote does have an export as html format. 

Below is a screenshot from my Mac showing the Select All menu item

@pmgrace: In the downloaded desktop application, you should be able to right-click (or Ctrl+click) individual notebooks from your Notebooks list and export those as individual .enex or .html files. As @DTLow mentioned, exporting in either of these formats will preserve the attachments in the notes.

1. To export a note(s): Select File > Export Note(s)

2. Export a notebook: Right-click on a notebook and select Export Notes

3. Click the arrows on the 'Format' field and select Evernote XML format (.enex) or .html from the drop down list

4. Check the 'Include tags for each note' option

If you want to preserve your notebook structure, it is recommended to export each individual notebook as its own file as opposed to selecting all notes from the Notes view.
