Migrate from Evernote

library Return to support library

To import your notes from Evernote you just need to perform a couple of steps:

  • Export your Evernote notes into a .enex archive following this export guide
  • Import the .enex inside Bear
  • On macOS you can import your notes by selecting FileImport FromEvernote from the menu bar.
  • On iOS you can access to the importers by going to Import in the menu on the sidebar.

The .enex format does not include informations about your notebooks. If you want to keep the notebook name as a reference in Bear we suggest to add a tag to your notes in Evernote before exporting them. The enex does retain the notes you trashed in Evernote, please consider empty Evernote’s trash before exporting.

migrate your Evernote’s notebooks to Bear you can use tags. Create a new note in Bear with a tag for every notebook (e.g. #notebook1, #notebook2, #notebook3, etc…). Export each notebook in an enex file and import them one by one. After every import, drag and drop the new notes to the corresponding tag. Use the search to find the newly imported notes (e.g. to find the notes which do not belong to #notebook1 and #notebook2 search for -#notebook1 -#notebook2).
