When you have authorized the FastPencil import functionality, FastPencil will then be able to scan your Evernote account to see what Notebooks/notes you have available to upload into the FastPencil writing tool.
Follow these steps to complete the Evernote import:
Step 1. Select the Notebook you would like to import your notes from and click "Find Notes".
Step 2. Check or uncheck all the notes within the Notebook you would like to import and click "Import Notes".
Step 3. When notes have completely been imported into the FastPencil writing tool. The note title will appear as a Chapter and any notes under the title will be separated into sections. The sections with text in the notes will be labeled as "text_section" and sections with images will be labeled as "image_section".
HOW TO VIDEO: "IMPORT TEXT"
- For WORD DOC instructions, skip to 2:20.
- TIP - To upload a MS Word Document file and organize it into chapters and sections, label all your Chapters and Sections as "HEADING 1". Once you import this document with the "heading 1" label, the publishing platform will separate all the chapters and sections for you. Alternatively, copy/paste each chapter and section, to ensure your styling and content is imported, section by section, paragraph by paragraph.
