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: Click File > New Notebook > 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.
