I have the premium version of Bear.
I would like to know where the notes are saved locally on the Mac.

    Hi John,

    the notes are saved in a sqllite database stored in this folder
    ~/Library/Containers/net.shinyfrog.bear/Data/Library/Application Support/net.shinyfrog.bear

    Hi, I went to exactly that folder and it only had another folder called "Thumbs" and nothing else.

    Did I miss something?

    This is the correct path:

    ~/Library/Containers/net.shinyfrog.bear/Data/Documents/Application Data/database.sqlite. Attachments are under Local Files.
