When you start using the Evernote service it is important to understand how to backup and export your private note. The cloud type applications that use the internet as its platform are convenient because they save a lot of data in different locations, but incur risks if not backed up. Your private note uses a special format that keeps all of your notes encrypted in case someone were to try and download them. Here are ways to backup and export your private note:
One popular way to export your note is through the use of alias to Google Docs. Google Docs allows you to paste in a private note and it will be saved as a file on their server. In order for this file to be opened online, you must first log into it and enter your password. This can come in handy if you are working with someone or need the file transferred to another person. You can also download this file as a PDF document.
Export to a local file
You can export your note to a local file in several ways. First, you can paste your note into a word processing document and then save it as a .txt file. You can also do this with the use of the Windows clipboard. You cut the contents of your private not onto the clipboard and then copy it into another application like Word or Notepad. Then, you can simply save it to an .txt file that you can transfer to another location or person.
Export to PDF
You can export your note in PDF format by right clicking on the icon of your private note and then selecting “export as PDF.” This PDF file can be saved to your desktop and then forwarded to another person or location. However, this will not work if you are using the web version of Evernote because it does not have the option.
