Notes Extracting N9
So i have some notes written on my n9 using the default notes application

I need to have them extracted to my pc so i can view it there.

Can someone kindly show/ tell me exactly how i can accomplish this?

Re: Notes Extracting N9
I'd be interested, too. I was under the impression they were stored as plain text files (Symbian does that), but can't find them

I would also like to know. Pathetic that we can't share Notes via bluetooth....

They are stored in /home/user/.calendar/db
You need to use sqlite to view them, but it's not a simple task. You'd have to first get the id of the note you want to extract. You can get plain text from the Components table if you just look at the Description field, or you can hit the Customproperties table Value field to get the html

If you only had one note:

sqlite3 /home/user/.calendar/db 'select value from customproperties'
QOrganizerNote in QtMobility seems to be the clean way of getting ahold of these entries, someone could cook up an extraction app easily enough 2012-01-04 00:41

Re: Notes Extracting N9
you need to open the terminal or login using ssh ...

I was thinking about designing a mobile editor for notes ... do you use textformats like markdown yaml or orgmode ?

But 1st it would nice to think about integration with other apps such as this calendar notes app...

Btw let me add a few urls :

They are in a database? OMG.

At least they could allow them to be sync'ed just like the contacts.
