So as a long time DT user, I must confess to being confused. I’ve recently started using DT to go, and so far it’s been great. However, I’ve been reading a lot on these forums about people making highlights and notes on pdfs in DT to go and saving them in Markdown format. But for me, this just isn’t working.
I know I can use Tools → Summarize Highlights → As Markdown in DT3, but this seems not to always (often) work, especially with highlights made on pdfs within DT to go and synched.
I also don’t see any way to save the notes I make on the pdf, these never seem to get saved.
So for example, I have a pdf that was annotated using DT to go on my iPad and synched. I can see all the highlights in the document itself when viewing it using DT3 on my desktop. If I use the inspector and click on the document icon in the middle of the top of the inspector pane and click on the Annotations button I can see all the highlights. If I click on “Reminders Annotations”, I don’t see any annotations (which worries me). If I click on Tools → Summarize → Markdown, nothing happens making me think that DT3 thinks there are no highlights even though they appear on the pdf.
I’m missing something basic here, but can’t see it at all. This would really help the way I work and integrate DT (in both it’s incarnations) into my daily workflow, but after a week of trying (on and off) I can’t make it work.
What I would like is to be able to to annotate and highlight a pdf using DT to go and have some way of exporting those to a Markdown document.
