Hi. I have started to use the app Highlights together with DT. I use it mainly on my iPad. The really good thing about Highlight is that it is able to sort the various colours used to highlight a text into groups: yellow highlights, red highlights etc. In total 8 groups. Perfect for literature reviews: yellow for research question, blue for findings etc.
That gives me a sorted pdf-document, that I import back into DT.
Now I wonder how to link the two documents: the original pdf and the annotations from the pdf. When performing searches, I only want to include the original document.
I was thinking about tagging - but that will make my use of tags inconsistent. Might marks be used? Will I be able to search for specific coloured marks?
P.S. I don’t think @chrillek is being unkind. Please remember you are not the only one in this forum using English as a second language, and also we come from different cultures with different speech patterns. What is seen as blunt or helpful to one person can seem rude or unclear to someone else from a different culture, but you should not assume malicious intent where there’s unlikely to be any.
Related request that would bring Highlights sort-by-annotation-colors functionality to DT3:
I think this would be ideal as DT3 is great for reading and marking up PDFs, and the summarize annotations feature is quite powerful, especially across a collection of PDFs. I keep playing with Highlights but then return to DT3 and miss sort-by-colors.
