Convert your my clippings.txt to .doc, csv, and html

Greetings,

One of my favorite features of the kindle is the ability to clip text and add annotations. I have been searching for a way to convert that file into something more usable. I posted around and found a very nice and talented person, who has created an application that does a great job of this.

So your my clippings.txt file is the input, and the output is either a well formatted .docx file, a csv file, or an html file. It is MUCH easier to use. I use the .docx option and the resulting Word table is marvelously clean.

Check it out at http://willcodejavaforfood.com/products.html . This is a free ap.

Please note I have no connection to this development and have no stake in this! The programmer - Erik - is terrific. I am just a very, very happy customer and willing to rave about this little program.

Check it out. If you have questions, post 'em here and I can point Erik to the thread so he can respond directly.

Enjoy!

Eric

I only know how the Mac version works, but I assume the Windows version is similar. On the Mac version, there is an 'export' button on the upper right of the application. Click that and pick the version you want. Works great for me.

So I just take my 'my clippings' file, put it on my desktop, open the application, select 'export' on the file, and select my output format. Works great and the developer does a great job of responding to questions. And, it is free!

Good luck with it.

Eric

Check out clippingsconverter.com

There is a much easier way to convert your kindle clippings.

Check out the website called clippingsconverter.com - it converts your kindle clippings so quickly and easily, it's awesome. And it's for free.

I'm very impressed by this website, as I am not a very techy person...and even I found it easy to use.
