    I’m a OneNote user that is looking to convert to a unix-based note system. I set up a free account at EverNote and imported my OneNote files, then exported them in all the available formats. I reviewed a lot of note apps, and it seems Cherrytree is closest to what I am looking for.

    My first attempt at importing a single html file worked fine. I could watch the status bar at the bottom and see it chewing through the files. Good start, but the single html file did not preserve the structure of the Onenote notebook, as expected.

    Then I attempted to import an html folder. Nothing happened. OK, something did happen. In the status bar at the bottom it said “No Node is Selected”. So I selected “Add a Node” from the toolbar, and tried to import again. No dice. I tried with the parent as the tree root, and the selected node. Nada.

    I checked the docs to see if there were any import troubleshooting hints and didn’t see anything. What is this noob missing?

    Thanks in advance for your help. Cherrytree looks like a nice note taking app.


    I too am confused by the html import function. I’m hoping to save web pages (at least the top level articles) but can’t seem to get it to work correctly. If I save a web page in Firefox, I get a folder full of web page elements. If I then import that folder into a Cherrytree node, I get an empty node with a list of sub-nodes that contain raw html code. Not really useful.

    The only way I’ve found to capture web page information is to create a screenshot in Firefox and import it into Cherrytree as a .png file.

    Am I missing something. I am using Cherrytree 0.38.8 on Kubuntu 18.04 bionic. Thanks.
