I wonder if there is a way to export to PDF or to rich text formatting?

Anyway, there is a way to export to a spreadsheet (Excel)…

That is, Export>>“Notes in Plain Text”. You will get a text file, but…

  • You can copy the content to a spreadsheet (Excel / Google Sheet / Numbers)
  • You can rename the extension from *.txt to *.csv or *.tsv
  • A text / a spreadsheet can be easily manipulate by programming; for example, Python
  • I really want to learn how to more powerfully manipulate a database…

You can import this later into things like Memrise, which supports bulk importing… (but not as perfect as Anki…)
