Say, I have a todo.txt file with one line per item. Is there a way to import it into evernote so that each line shows up as a separate note? I can't find a way to do this in the Evernote UI on the PC.

  • If I were you, I'd head on over to stackoverflow after looking into enscript createnote source – Raystafarian Jul 19 '13 at 17:55
  • I couldn't figure it out in a batch file, I tried, but you'll need something to open the text file, for each line store line to variable, call enscript createnote /p blank.txt /i variable. blank.txt will need to be a text file with a null character in it, otherwise enscript doesn't work correctly – Raystafarian Jul 19 '13 at 17:56
  • Added the command line command to my answer, couldn't get a batch file to work, but it does what you want it to – Raystafarian Jul 20 '13 at 9:46

I can do it from command line:

For /F "tokens=*" %G in (path to todo.txt) do start ENscript.exe createnote /s blank.txt /i "%G"

This requires you run command prompt at C:\Program Files (x86)\Evernote\Evernote that has blank.txt with a null character.

You can change it up by changing the paths to either text line or put the entire address of ENscript in, to run it from anywhere.

For some reason, I can't write a batch file to do this..

  • Thanks, sounds like what I need! How do I make a blank.txt file with Notepad? (just not sure what is a Null character) – Joe Jul 20 '13 at 15:52
  • @Joe just open notepad and press enter and save as blank.txt or whatever – Raystafarian Jul 20 '13 at 16:00
