Export Notes for Sharing



  • I have been enjoying the Vivaldi tech preview for a while. Now that I'm on the Beta I've started using the 'Notes' feature. It is great for capturing and organizing website bugs but I would like to be able to export and share with the programmers. Is there such a thing as a way to share a note or export notes in a format others can read without Vivaldi like a PDF? Sorry if this has an obvious answer, I've never used Opera before so my only experience with a browser like this is Vivaldi. Alternatively if there was a way to export the notes for them to import into Vivaldi on their own computer that would also work. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you. Windows 7 Pro/x64, Vivaldi 1.0.321.3



  • Also wondering if there's any way to share notes. My use case is from computer in office to computer in living room



  • Not yet. Really all you can do at this time is copy the file over.



  • i had a curiosity after refreshing my windows profile. you can view data used to construct notes in C:\users[username]\appdata\local\vivaldi\user data\default\notes. i found the linux location, it is more intuitive, though. as are most things in linux… both versions are hidden files. "notes" also appears as a .bak backup file. variables in that file you could presumably play with. can be opened as text document. image i attached to a note was not easily visible, although it may be if moved to a fresh install. text notes in file very easily display.

    after i wrote the above, i tried to modify the note file. new notes are trickier, but it's easy to edit text notes. copying multiple notes verbatim seems like it would work. mod the file w/text editor. \n is return within a string. not bash, language notes are written in seems to be html or css, i don't know much of the last two. backslashes should indicate special characters, new notes you need to set a few variables; tell me if you can do it this way, maybe copy and paste to existing notes file rather than duplicate original notes file.



  • @monkey_wrench_gang898 thank for info. where are notes stored under linux? I want to write a script that will export notes on my machine. I have tried to search for notes file with find tool but I have failed.



  • @Lampadron
    ~/.config/vivaldi/Default/Bookmarks
    ~/.config/vivaldi/Default/Bookmarks.bak

    i have not played with these. i like, use, and am more interested in linux. post is on windows section of forum, assumed you were on windows.

    i was already writing a script to transfer bookmarks. i would be interested in collaborating on a transfer script.

    Those are the Bookmarks

    Notes are in -
    ~/.config/vivaldi/Default/Notes
    ~/.config/vivaldi/Default/Notes.bak



  • @TbGbe yes i mistyped, i was thinking about the script i was writing for bookmarks, not the notes that were asked about. i got a bit too excited to think straight, as i was working on a similar project.





  • By the way, if you are using snapshot then

    Notes are in -
    ~/.config/vivaldi-snapshot/Default/Notes
    ~/.config/vivaldi-snapshot/Default/Notes.bak



  • copying bookmarks and bookmarks.bak transfers bookmarks snapshot to stable, or snapshot on a new computer. tested on fedora and korora 64.

    Hi monkey_wrench,
    You don't have to copy the Bookmarks.bak file as well.
    This is just a backup of your current bookmarks that Vivaldi creates whenever you add or remove bookmarks.
    Bak is an extension commonly used for backup files.
