Download a spreadsheet of notes

Download a CSV file that includes all of your notes from project settings.

You can download a spreadsheet of notes for your entire project. Each spreadsheet contains a number of columns in the CSV format, and can be opened with Apple Numbers, Google Sheets, Microsoft Excel, or other spreadsheet software.

The spreadsheet export is not able to preserve formatting, layout, highlights, and tags. You can download a PDF of each note to maintain formatting.
