Import Web Archive

I've reformatted my computer and thought I backed up Caboodle but only exported it in the web archive format. I don't suppose there is any way to import that given it's not currently available as an import option for me?

Re: Import Web Archive

Not really, unfortunately. You could load each web archive in Safari then copy the text back to Caboodle, for each entry, though that would be laborious if you have lots of entries, and you may lose formatting or attachments. Or print each web page to PDFs and drag those in.

The best option, though, would be to restore Caboodle's data via a Time Machine backup. The data is in the path "~/Library/Application Support/Dejal/Caboodle", where "~" means your home folder.
