You can import your flashcards and review history from Anki. Simple note types work great, but be aware complex note types may not result in high-quality flashcards in RemNote (upgrades here are planned!).

Step 1: Export from Anki

  1. In Anki, choose File > Export.

  2. Select the .apkg format.

  3. Check Include Scheduling Information and Include Media, unless you do not want to import these into RemNote for some reason.

  4. Select Support older Anki versions. (RemNote is not able to read the newer format.)

  5. Select the deck you’d like to export.

  6. Click Export in the lower-right and save the .apkg file somewhere convenient.

Step 2: Import to RemNote

  1. In RemNote, choose Settings > Import.

  2. Click the Anki button, then select the .apkg file you exported earlier.

  3. Deselect any decks you don’t want to import, if you exported several, and choose Import Cards.

If you exported a lot of cards, it may take as long as several minutes to finish importing them and converting them to RemNote format.

Step 3 (Optional): Integrate your Anki cards into your Knowledge Base

All imported flashcards will get the tag Anki Card. As you become more familiar with RemNote, or if you’re already an accomplished RemNote user, you may find that your imported cards could be strengthened by reorganizing them or adding references to other cards, taking advantage of the additional features of RemNote. If you have time, you can use this tag to find opportunities for improvement, or simply edit cards as you come across them in review and notice they could be improved.
