Evernote is a great way to collect all your memories in one place. Whether you’re gathering photos related to a new home renovation with the Evernote Web Clipper, collecting meal ideas with Evernote Food, or jotting down plans for a work presentation directly in Evernote, the number of notes on any given topic can add up fast. Often, organizing notes as you collect them isn’t convenient, and copying content from one note into another later can be a pain. Luckily, Evernote for Mac, Evernote for Windows Desktop, and Evernote Web give you an easy way to merge multiple notes into a single one.
Merge notes by following these steps:
- Select the notes you want to merge (Command + Click on Mac or Ctrl + Click on PC)
- A thumbnail view of the notes with options will appear in the Note Viewer
- Click the ‘Merge’ button
All of the selected notes will be merged into a single note. When merging with Evernote for Windows Desktop and via the Web, the title of the new note will be the same as the first note selected. When merging with Evernote for Mac, the title will be the same as the most recently modified note. The remaining note titles will be included in the body of the new note, making it easy to tell where the content originated from. The original notes will be moved to the Trash.
Please keep in mind that notes originally created in other Evernote apps, such as Evernote Food, Evernote Hello or Skitch, will no longer be accessible in those apps once merged. To continue to be able to view the original notes, simply move the original notes from your Trash back into any notebook in your Evernote account.
