I’ve been using the app for a couple of years now, without realising that the format in which it exports means that the highlights cannot be read by other apps.
I realise that you can view them (i.e. see them) but they can’t be recognised and so nothing can be done with them outside of marginnote.
I believe the the technical description of this is that the highlights have been flattened.
I desperately need other apps to be able to read the highlights.
I have hundreds of articles and books that I’ve highlighted, with tens of thousands of highlights !!!
Please could you let me know:
1) if there is any way to get an export of a pdf that does not flatten the highlights?
2) if there are any plans to introduce this feature and if so WHEN???
I’ve looked through the forum and the only query / responses I can see on this topic are:
Marginnote annotations should NOT be flattened in Oct - 2019 - where it seemed that there was some assurance the non-flattening would be adopted
Feature request - Don’t flatten annotations on export - in July 2019 - which also indicated that the feature was on your road map
As I said, I’m desperate not to have to re-highlight the pdfs in another app, in order to have interoperability. IT WOULD TAKE ME THOUSANDS OF HOURS.
