Exporting Your Notes From Evernote

If you’ve decided to quit Evernote for some reason, you are probably interested in saving your information and migrating to another note-taking app.

In this post, we’ll provide you with a straightforward guide on exporting notes from Evernote. We will explain how to export selected notes, notebooks, or all your EN notes.

To start exporting your notes, you need to use the desktop version of Evernote. We suggest you migrate your notes in Evernote XML / ENEX format (.enex) and not in HTML because ENEX format is more reliable and convenient.

How to Export Selected Notes From Evernote.

  1. Click on a note. If you want to import several notes, hold down CMD (on Mac) / CTRL (on Windows) and click to select each note.
  2. Right-click on the selected note(s) and choose Export Note(s)…
  3. Ensure that Evernote XML / ENEX format (.enex) is selected. If it is not, select this format to export your note(s). Click export.
  4. You can also import your note’s tags by checking ‘Include tags for each note’ / ‘tag.’
  5. Click Save.

Please note that Evernote only allows exporting an unlimited number of notes only in versions 6.25 and earlier. If you are using a later version, you can only export 50 notes in one file.


How to Export a Notebook from Evernote.

  1. Open the desired notebook.
  2. Press on the three dots (More actions).
  3. Select Export Notebook.
  4. Click Save.

As we wrote earlier, you can export only 50 notes per file if you are using an Evernote version that is later than 6.25. If your Evernote Notebook contains more than 50 notes, you will need to do multiple exports.

We also recommend exporting each Evernote Notebook separately, since .enex files don’t save the Notebook structure and your notes may be mixed.

How to Export All Your Notes From Evernote

If you’ve decided to migrate to one of the Evernote alternatives, you might want to export all your information. To accomplish this, do the following:

  1. Select any note and press CMD + A (Mac) or CTRL + A (Windows) on the keyboard to select all of your notes.
  2. Right-click on the notes. Then, choose Select File > Export …
  3. Select the Evernote XML / ENEX format (.enex) format from the menu to export your note. Click export.
  4. You can also import your note’s tags by checking ‘Include tags for each note’ / ‘tag.’
  5. Click Save.

If you have less than 50 notes, you can export them all at one time. However, if you are using the latest versions of Evernote and you have more than 50 notes, you will need to repeat the export procedure for every 50 notes.

If you need to make sure that your notes stay in the same order as they were at Evernote, we recommend exporting each Notebook separately.
