I have two notebooks I exported from Evernote, one has 425 items, and the other has 137 items.
While importing via joplin desktop each of these enex file imports threw a joplin helper quit error.
and then Joplin hangs on a blank window, and needs to be force quit.
When I reopen, I find that only 94/137 and 49/425 items have been imported. (and now I have 3 copies of one partial imported notebooks)
I thought I’d maybe have a better chance with the terminal program, but white :status does help by telling me the # of things imported (would be nice to have in the desktop app), it doesn’t seems to be any better at importing the same enex file. (or even recognizing the file is actually there)
I'll export notes without attachment first then import them. And repeat that for inbox and art folder.
Then repeat for notes with attachment. For each folder again and import them.
But this becomes empirical
I think about an attachment that could not be imported correctly.
Not currently. It would throw an error if there’s something invalid in the ENEX file, but on a crash like this one, I don’t think there will be any useful info in the log.
If you can identify a note or notebook that make the app crashes and can share it, it should be possible to fix the issue. Are there particularly large images in the ENEX file? How big is the file actually?
and in the Art folder... I had a very awesome imgur gif of someone sculpting a hand from clay... almost 200mb, and no metadata(title, url ) aside from file name.
after a bit of searching I found the original as youtube vid, and just saved that url instead.
