  • The internal note links in Evernote do not contain information about which note they link to, so we cannot convert them to UpNote links. The internal note links from Evernote will remain intact, and you will still be able to click them to open in Evernote.
  • If your text in Evernote are in default color, it will be imported as default text color in UpNote and displayed dynamically in both light and dark mode. However if your text in Evernote are set as custom color, the color would be kept when imported to UpNote and will appear as it is in both light and dark mode. You can clear the text color in UpNote by highlighting the text and select "Remove color" from the text color options.
Tip: If you want to keep your notebook structure from Evernote, first export each individual notebook from Evernote to .enex file. Then you could import multiple enex files into UpNote, and enable "Use file name as notebook" option.
