I’ve been using MarginNote for a little while now, but I’m confused about what do when I’m done annotating a file and want to archive it.
Here’s my process:
I annotate PDFs in Study mode (I don’t understand the purpose of Document mode),
When finished, I export my annotations as an OmniOutliner,
I want to also archive my original PDF source files — that is, get them off of the MarginNote app and store them in DEVONthink, because
(a) it frees up space and file clutter in MarginNote (which doesn’t have a good file management structure) and,
(b) DEVONthink has better search capabilities which is useful for archived files,
As far as I can, there are two BIG problems with #3:
Exporting MarginNote-annotated PDF files are huge. They take up a ridiculous amount of space, so archiving them eats into my storage space when it involves hundreds of files (or more).
As far as I can tell — and I might be wrong about this — it seems to me that the MarginNote-created URL links don’t work when one removes PDF files from the MarginNote app. Is that right?
I’m hoping that it’s NOT true, and that there’s some way to solve this so that I don’t have to have all of my MarginNote-annotated PDF files constantly loaded on the app just so the MarginNote-created URL links will work!
Please let me know if there’s some way to export and archive MarginNote-annotated PDF files — that is, removing them from MarginNote after I’ve finished annotating them — while ensuring that MarginNote-created URL links still work. Thank you.
Like I said, it’s a big problem to archive MarginNote-annotated PDFs because of their large file size. However, I might not be able to use MarginNote if the MarginNote-created URL links don’t work after I export and remove files from the app.
Any solutions or suggestions? Thanks, everyone…
