Export notes with applescript

Post by mk7 » Sat Jan 12, 2019 2:58 pm

Hi,

I'm looking for an applescript that will export *just* the written notes that I create (not the highlights). I considered trying to modify this OPML script viewtopic.php?f=6&t=3882 but my problem is that I create notes using Bookends on my iPad and the notes I create there don't seem to be imported to Bookends notecard database. As far as I understand, there are virtual notecards that still show all my highlights/notes but they aren't actually imported into the database--this is a little unclear to me especially since I've created these in the bookends app on iOS. I'm not sure if I should be changing the way I take notes, or if there's any easy way to simply export those notes that I've already taken. Ideally, I'd just like to export them to a simple plain text file with the reference on top, and the name being something like: 2019-01-12-author-title.
