Frequently asked questions

How does it work?

ExportNote automatically detects the location of Evernote's internal database on your computer, extracts all the notes, converts them to HTML and/or PDF files, and store them in the export folder. Each note, notebook and stack are exported into a distinct folder; preserving the original arrangement.

How to use ExportNote?

Launch ExportNote. Click on the export button. After a few moments, all the notes and attachments have been exported into the export folder. You can then navigate your notes and notebooks like any regular files and folders using the Finder (Mac) or Explorer (PC).

How much does it cost? Is there any limitation?

ExportNote Basic (HTML) and Premium (HTML + PDF) cost $4.99 and $14.99, respectively. There is no time limitation or any restriction. You can use the application as often as you like, as long as you like. After purchasing ExportNote, you will receive a link valid for 5 downloads, including future releases.

Does ExportNote support large accounts?

ExportNotes supports any size of database. Depending on the number of notes, the export might take a significant amount of time (several minutes or hours), but it will complete without any difficulty. On our testing environment (MacBook Pro 2.7 GHz), ExportNote can export 1-2 notes per second. That is roughly 10-15 minutes for 1,000 notes, 2-3 hours for 10,000 notes.

Where is my data?

After clicking on the export button, all the notes are exported into the export folder, under a new sub-folder called ExportNote_<date>_<time> (e.g. ExportNote_20150508_234959). By default, ExportNote uses the "home directory" as export folder. You can select any location by clicking on the select button.
