Add the ability to backup, export, and/or save to SD card
With the costs of micro SD card very cheap, this would be an option that would be of use to the average user.
Papyrus 2.0 is rolling out with the ability to create and restore backups locally to your device or SD card. Just open the Papyrus settings and choose “Backup and restore” then “Local backup”. In addition, when exporting individual notes to PDF, PNG, or JPEG, you can choose “Save to device” to save the exported note to your device or SD card.
Am I simply able to move everything to my SD card

I keep reading where you can now backup papyrus to SD card. But it doesn't work with the new Squid app. I need to be able to backup my note to an SD card or Android Memory Stick. If this request has already been addressed, please tell me where I can download this feature. BTW, I have already subscribed to the yearly payment so I should be allowed all the new features right?

I have it on my surface pro 4, and I can't export to pdf files. The share command gives a list of applications, all useless.
I'm not able to save to Sd card, I'm stuck because I don't have enough space to export one of my notes in my device and really appreciated if you fix this issue.
yeah, it would be much easier to let other apps do the syncing...
For now you can only set interval for cloud storage. I think it would make this program much more flexible if you let this happen also for e.g. sd card. From there anyone can sync however he likes usgin foldersync, bittorrent sync tasker, or any other syncing tool.

Not being able to save to a SD-card is a problem, especially since backing up database to dropbox doesn’t work.
My workaround? Backup database locally to the dropbox scratch folder containing the last Squid backup.
... Too bad that can’t be done automatically, periodically.
Samsung Note 10.1 Android 4.4.2
"Blackup failed" on SD.
Backup failed on Samsung Tab 10 2014 with Android 4…
SD card is the great invention of IT. You can store large amount of data on a slim micro ship. There is less chance of data security and provides full data security protection.

You should bundle this option with the cloud premium backup feature. It'd add more value to it. Or, instead, at least offer as another premium option. However, not offer it is so lame and feels stingy.
Respected developers, please don't assume that "advanced users" will get their data files after rooting their Android devices. Rooting makes phone more unsafe and there is a possibility to damage system files damaging the Operating system itself.
Allow an option for data to be stored on SD card by default so that even if Device gets physically damaged , notes can be extracted from SD card. How am I going to take a backup to Dropbox if my device becomes unbootable ?
I honestly don't even care if it is a file format that I can access. I just want to be able to back the archive up to an SD card b/c the app has failed to upload a full database to the internet in more than 7 months. Even with a fast (50mbps upload) stable internet connection while the device was plugged in and charging.
My papyrus occupied 1.9GB, who can tell me how to move notes to external SD??

Very good idea, would enable users to back up older notes they don't use regularly so cutting down on notes I am app for backing up online

Well if papyrus did that, they will not be able to make more money from the sale of their export feature.

Also you can add a permission in the Manifest for kitkat to do this.
There is a risk of device storage filling up and it would be good to be able to have older notes stored offline or on the SD Card.
Also, this can probably be implemented with a few lines of code.
As a workaround one can install an app that Papyrus can export to and which saves to the sd card. For example FolderSync works.
My i717 is running out of memory because of this :( I have 2GB for applications memory and Papyrus occupies half of it.
I tried moving the /data/data/.../files folder to my external 32gb sd card and linking it to the original location, but it failed miserably. Maybe some access right issue :(
