How to import notes?

On Mac you can find available importers under MenuBar > File > Import And on iOS you can find import under Settings Tab > Import

Currently, the app supports the following importers:

  • Markdown (zip archive containing md files). You can check the structure of valid import files by viewing how Diarly exports your entries.
  • DayOne JSON (zip archive)
  • DayOne classic (.dayone folder or zip archive containing such folder - information where to find it can be found here)
  • MacJournal (rtf or txt).
  • Journey (zip)
  • Momento

When you select import, you will be shown with additional information of which entries will be imported. If you are happy with the results just press the Import button. Multiple entries for the same day will be merged into one using time separator.

tip: Exporting to markdown allows you to create backups, that you can easily import later.
