Import/Export notes to/from Evernote.
It would be nice if Logos (both PC and iPad/iPhone/iPod versions) could import/export notes to/from Evernote. If possible the format should be compatible with OliveTree's BibleReader so the notes can be portable between applications.
A simple feature added to select where notes and other information are saved would be the solution. Then you could save to any cloud-based program/ location and open on any device running Logos. Research done on a tablet or desktop products could then be interchangeable.
I don't think Logos should support just one note software package like this -- they already force us to make decisions about our platforms (no windows phones or tablets!); they should not be forcing us to use a single note package to get any sort of integration.
I would vote for this if it were for better integration with ALL notes platforms, but I won't vote for an Evernote specific feature.
If I could import notes back into Logos from my Kindle, I'd be more likely to purchase all books through Logos rather than Kindle.
1)Purchase book in Logos
2)Export to Kindle for reading, highlighting, notes, etc.
3)Import back into Logos (directly or through evernote)
Even better, it would be nice if I could highlight text in logos and send it straight to an Evernote note. I can already do this on my Kindle.

Included in this, I would like to see the ability to copy/paste to Evernote (I preach form evernote every week) I agree with Joel below - Evernote is here to stay... I even see it taking marketshare from words processing programs like MS Word
Please we need this one.
Evernote is here to stay. Please implement this.

After I read any book in any format - print, ibooks, kindle or logos for ipad - I write and maintain a database of book summaries in Evernote for future reference. Being able to export notes from Logos would greatly enhance my ability to keep helpful summaries, including the ability to export my highlights from the "quotes" section of the highlights notes. Right now I can do this with the Kindle books, but with Logos I am limited to taking screen shots of the most important highlights to include in my summaries. Please set up the ability to export to Evernote, or to export to a format that can be uploaded to Evernote.
I would love to be able to import/export notes, but I rarely use Evernote. I have a Surface tablet and use OneNote due to the compatibility with Word.
It'd be sweet if your Evernote content would just show up in a native logos search under one of those heading things. All of those wonderful articles that I have saved from across the internet, and notes that I have taken, integrated into logos would be super sweet. From seeing other applications that can access Evernote content in their apps, it seems like that would be possible.
So, basically, I'd like to see more like, "Evernote Integration" rather than just import/export notes.

I agree that this would be useful. Although Logos has added functionality to notes over the last several releases, but it would not be efficient for Logos to develop note-taking as a core competency: it does so many other things well. Let a note-taking app take this burden.
I developed (but never released) a tight integration between Logos 3 notes and Mindjet's Mindmanager--it could record notes from the Logos UI, store them in a Mindmanager file, and display them in the Logos UI. It also could record search results with links to Logos resources, which the user could sort and annotate freely in MindManager.
But, alas, the Logos 4 api is much more limited. As it stands, the public API does not allow for this level of integration.
I'd like to help with this, if it ever happens.

Please please please!

This would be amazing! I worry that it won't ever get done, since it was suggested in 2010... but i am hurting for a way to integrate my evernote and logos accounts!
Don Giles commented
I would say "Here Here!" Evernote is ALWAYS open when I am working in Logos. In addition, it easily can contain graphics...something Logos Notes do not do easily.
Tim Latham commented
This would be a great feature!
YES! Please. Maybe this could be integrated in a context menu where a lighted piece of text could be sent to evernote.

Please do consider being able to import and export notes. I have more than a third of the verses from my old Bible software (Quick Verse 4, I stayed with it for this very reason) notated. I was able to process the export with a VBS script, but the result is a static book, not a note.
I would prefer OneNote over EverNote, simply because it's more compatible with Word, and it's a more powerful note package. What might be a better solution than making notes within Logos compatible with one package, or even making Logos into a full featured note taking software package, would be to look at features that allow users to more easily link Logos and these outside software packages, like this one:
Just a thought...
I've been using Logos for 8 years and I love a lot of the features in the software. But since most of my electronic organization revolves around Evernote rather than by using the note files and clippings, this would be a great feature. I still like having the dedicated note file option in Logos since these are searchable, but an Evernote option (like Logos already has with Faithlife, Tweitter, and FB), would be a great addition. I do already use the control-alt-v option with copied text from Logos.
Gene Cornett commented
yes, yes, yes! I switched to writing out all my original verse notes in Evernote because they sync immediately to all my other devices and because Logos notes was often sluggish though I think that's been improved. This feature would be awesome.
