How Do I Backup All iCloud Notes?

I have 500+ “Notes” in iCloud that are synced between my iPads, iPhones and Macs. Is there a way to backup all of these Notes at one time.

All I can find is instructions to copy / paste contents of a single note or create a PDF from a single note.

    What is the purpose of the “backup.” A backup is supposed to be for emergencies or accidents. Since you have these notes in iCloud already, then you’ve got that covered.

    Do you mean you wish to archive them somehow? You can do that by exporting each note as a PDF. Unfortunately, there does not appear to be a way to do more than one at a time. 500 is a lot of notes! I don’t think Apple envisioned someone having that many or they would have built a way to export multiple ones.

    I had the same need and found the Exporter app from the Mac App store: it backs up each note individually to a text file, i.e., 500 notes, 500 text files. Have used it for 9 months without any issues.

    Wood: Nice find.
