Importing/exporting journal entries is done in the macOS version of Lifecraft.
Importing from Day One
Lifecraft can import journal entries from Day One Classic or Day One v2.
Exporting Lifecraft (JSON)
When entries are exported in the "Lifecraft (JSON)" format, all entry data is preserved, including photos, text styles, emotions, tags, location, etc.

All of the entries are exported to a single file. The file is a package that contains JSON files for every exported journal.

Exporting Text Files
Each entry will be exported to a separate text file (rtf). Entry photos are not exported unless they're embedded in the entry text.

Importing Text Files
A new journal entry will be added for every text file that you select. If a text file includes a date as its file name (e.g. “4-23-20” or “April 23, 2020”), the new entry will be assigned to that date. If the file name doesn’t include a date, you can choose to have the entry assigned to the date the file was created or modified.
- Select the Journal where you want to import the new entries.
- Choose File > Import > Text
- Choose one or more text files.
