Importing from TreeDBNotes

Post by PaulNcAlsen »

Here's a dirty solution that loses all of the nesting in TreeDBNotes:

In TreeDBNotes:
1. Select the notes you want to export.
2. File -> Export Notes -> Combine and Export
3. Select 'Title and Description' and 'dotted line'.
4. Save to a .txt file

In a text editor, do a search and replace on the 'dotted line' that replaces it with '=-=', then save the file

In AllMyNotes:
1. File -> Import, then select the file and import it.

That's it. You'll have to create the folders and move things where you want them, and fix any formatting lost, but it's better than doing things one at a time!

I'll try other import methods later, and let everyone know what happens.
