I’ve been trying to recreate my perfect workflow ever since Sente went bust several years ago. Sente had a script where you could export your annotations to Scrivener as an .opml file (I believe?) that saved as nesting index cards (See screenshot below).
Is there any way to currently do something like this from DT3? I’ve been switching back and forth between annotating PDFs directly in DT3 and using the Highlights app in markdown. I know Bookends has a similar kind of script, but I find it to be extremely buggy, and I really don’t like the Bookends in-app annotation features.
Maybe. From your description, it is not very clear if you’re annotating PDF files or something else. In the first case, it seems not to be possible to get at the annotations from DT programmatically. A search in the forum (always useful) reveals this
For Markdown or other text files, however, this should be scriptable. But beforehand, it should be clear what OPML content Scrivener is expecting. It seems that OPML is fairly vague as a markup dialect.
FWIW, I’m on a tangential path. I’m preferring to export to markdown (heading to Obsidian). The best path is from Highlights either into Devonthink as a markdown textbundle or (as I’ve just discovered) directly out of Highlights as a textbundle folder (not as a markdown file).
