I'm wondering why I can not import my Apple notes from 'Notes'.

    Autocomplete made a mess of my headline. ;-) I just wanted to say that I'm a premium user of both iOS and OS version.

    Keyboard Maestro “Apple Notes export to Bear” macro

    Includes Title, headings, links, text format, lists, images, and even files.

    Mac Notes Export to Bear.kmmacros  (17 KB)

    How to use:

    1. Open Notes and select folder.
    2. Run this macro from Keyboard Maestro status menu
    3. Set tag at prompt with folder name or whatever.

    Repeat for each of Notes’ foldes you like to export/import to Bear


    • It uses copy/paste as rich text and will take it’s time.
    • Close other apps and do not use Mac while this macro is running.
    • Notes’ monospaced style will for some reason become H3 in Bear
    • Numbered lists starts at 0. and need to be changed to 1. manually
