Extract highlighted text in PDF RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

      I want to write a tool which can extract highlighted text from the pdf and export the text into another pdf file. Can somebody give me directions how to do that.

    if you think some tool already has that capacity, please let me know. Most of the tool I know just extract the summary like the location of the highlighted portion but not the actual text associated with it.

  • www.pdfhighlights.com extracts all your highlights and annotations from multiple PDFs into a single report from which you can click through to the PDF containing each annotation.

    If you sync your tablet/ipad with your desktop using something like dropbox, then all your ipad pdf annotations will be reportable from your desktop.
