“How to Import Your notes to Notes on Mac”

Mac users can import many formats of notes to the built-in Notes app, and the supporting formats include .txt, .rtf, .rtfd, .html, and .enex (Evernote XML export). Actually, it is quite easy to import notes on your Mac. Here are the detailed steps:

After the import is complete, you will see a new folder in the Notes app called imported Notes, and you can organize the notes there into any Notes folder you prefer.

Tips: 1. Your imported notes might look different from the original ones. If there is an attachment or feature that the Notes app does not support, it will be removed. 2. If you choose to store the notes in iCloud, you can automatically view them on any device where you sign in with your Apple ID. 3. If the notes that you’re importing are organized in folders, click Options in the lower-left corner and then “Preserve folder structure on import” to keep them organized the way they were in the folder.

To export selected notes, you just need to choose File menu > Export as PDF.
