Folks have been asking recently about options for import from Evernote to Outline and beyond.
Happy to share a bunch of best practices!
UPD: the below procedure of import from Evernote to Outline is based on a workaround of using an import utility by Microsoft and 1-time usage of OneDrive. For a direct workaround-free way of import, see this update.
At Outline’s, we believe in helping you to take notes where they work best. Captured at any place on a page, stored in a local file system, and synced with your favorite cloud. Among other things, this concept suggests that sometimes notes work best beyond the app those were made with.
A while ago you got a chance to take your Circus Ponies notes into Outline, and now it’s Evernote time.
Remembering Outline plays nice with OneNote, let us introduce the world’s trickiest workaround: import Evernote to Outline using OneNote converter.
Wait, what? OneNote?! Aren’t we supposed to be persuading you to leave aside all other note-taking apps (actual, possible, and imagined) and never use anything besides Outline? We might have. But what’s the point recommending your stuff if it might be doing not as good as another player’s stuff. Whatever works best for your notes! So, here goes the workaround…
Wait, still not convinced, you might say. What if I don’t want using OneNote by any means, you might say. What if I like the idea of Go Local or Go Home, you might add. What if I don’t like the idea of OneDrive-only for notes on my Mac, you might summarize.
There is good news for you in this case. OneNote will only be required once. It’s just a step in the import procedure. After the import is finished, your notes will be happily living in Outline, having nothing to do with OneDrive or OneNote, if you don’t want that.
Sounds like a plan? Here is the import procedure then:
Step 1. Download and install Evernote-to-OneNote import tool.
Step 2. Run the thing!
Step 3. Grab your imported notebooks and drag them into Outline.
