PAF 5.2


PAF

Private Notes

PAF uses the ~ (tilde) as the first character on a Notes line to mark the note as Confidential.

The recommendation is to not export Confidential Notes, by unchecking the box in front of Confidential Notes as you can see in the images below. If you are using PAF, you may also want to define the ~ (tilde) as the Prefix for private notes in your Import Settings.
