What is a local notebook?

Local notebooks are notebooks that are not synced to the Evernote Service and only exist on the computer where they are created. By default, new notebooks created in Evernote will be synced across all of your devices.

To create a local notebook:

  • Evernote for Mac: Press and hold the 'Option' key on your keyboard, then click File > New Local Notebook
  • Evernote for Windows: Click File > New Local Notebook

It isn't possible to change a notebook's type after you've created it.
