Thanks all for an interesting discussion (esp re: the dream of integration; I’ve been searching for it and thought it was just my failings to find the perfect system that stood in the way?seems it’s a problem for everyone).

At least there may be a solution to the extraction/reading of pdf annotations, if that’s the correct reading of some comments here. I use Zotero as my reference manager (Open source alternative to Endnote). Very good program. You can place pdfs within it, and an add-on called Zotfile will extract highlighting, underlying and comments that you’ve entered on the pdf, exporting them as a plaintext file within Zotero (which could of course be pasted into any other document you wish). I’ve used it only a bit, and only with annotations made in Mac OS Preview, but it appears to work quite well, and does catch things like highlightings.

Happy Hunting!

Thanks Justin, I do have Zotero installed but I haven’t heard of Zotfile before. I’ll check it out.
