Real Estate Guide: How To Export Evernote To PDF 

Evernote is one of the most popular, as well as one of the most useful, cloud services available to real estate agents at this time. As agents spend a lot of time in the field, Evernote has features that allow agents to more efficiently perform their tasks. Documents can be quickly created, stored and shared; checklists and to-do lists can be quickly created and managed; audio clips and photos can be created, edited, stored and shared; web pages can be saved as screenshots for reference; emails can be forwarded directly to Evernote and saved, and much more. Seems like it can handle most real estate tasks already, right? But there is one missing feature that is making real estate agents actually perform MORE work- and that us the option to export Evernote notes in PDF format.

Evernote has no option to export Evernote to PDF

Since Evernote is one of a real estate agent’s most-used tools, and since most documents that real estate agents deal with on a daily basis are in PDF format, this is not very efficient. Many documents must be protected and PDF files can be encrypted and password-protected for enhanced security. Currently, you only have a few options if you want to convert Evernote to PDF documents.

  • You can export Evernote notes into a supported format, then manually create a PDF document from these files using Adobe Acrobat.
  • You can export Evernote notes into a supported format, then create a PDF document from this file using the “Print to File” feature in Windows.

Manually creating PDF files can be time-consuming, especially if you are dealing with many documents that need to be converted. An automatic Evernote to PDF export feature would be very handy, but until Evernote implements this, what can you do?

Well, you can continue to use the manual conversion processes described above, or you can use a service that automatically exports Evernote to PDF without any hassle or manual conversion from users.

This is where cloudHQ comes into play. Until Evernote implements this badly-needed feature, cloudHQ has a solution for automatically  exporting Evernote to PDF. This is how the cloudHQ process works:

CloudHQ provides replication and synchronization services from one cloud account to another. In doing so, it also allows Evernote users to choose to have their Evernote notes exported in PDF format. As an example, let’s say that you want to replicate your Evernote notes from Evernote to Dropbox, and you want all your notes exported from Evernote to PDF format.

The first step is to sign up for cloudHQ. Once you do that, you can click on the sync wizard and you will be taken to this page.

Simply select the Evernote icon and drag it to the box on the left.

The cloudHQ wizard will ask you to sign into the Evernote account that you wish to use for this sync. Once you have signed in to Evernote, you will be able to select which files and folders you wish to sync. You can choose to sync all files and folders or specific files and folders. Everything that is uploaded, created or stored in these shared folders will be synced. Follow the instructions and as soon as you have allowed cloudHQ to access the Evernote account, you will be brought back to the sync page. 

Next, you will click on the Dropbox icon and drag it to the box on the right.

Now you will click on "Add Dropbox" and add your Dropbox account, just as you did for Evernote. Select a folder, or create a new one, for your Evernote files to be replicated to. You can name it "Evernote" or "Evernote PDFs" or something similar. Once you have added Dropbox, you will be taken to a settings page.

Here you can set your options for exportation. You need to click the option "Export notes into PDF format." If you want your files to also be exported in Microsoft Word format, simply check the appropriate box. This way, you get two copies of your notes in the two most common formats. And remember- all this is automatic, you don't have to do anything extra to make it work. All notes that you create or upload to the shared folder in Evernote will be exported to Dropbox in real-time as PDF files. If you make revisions to existing files, the revisions will be synced instantly as well.

*Be sure you check the “Switch to one-way sync” option if you don’t want your changes in Dropbox to be replicated back to Evernote.
