The short answer, no.
Kindle uses what is called a My Clippings.txt file using standard text formatted in a particular way. Here is an example that was taken from this readme file on a GitHub project (modified slightly to remove leading comment characters).
- Highlight Loc. 250-51 | Added on Wednesday, December 29,...
Yes, this can be done through the Kindle website:
Go to https://kindle.amazon.com.
At the top of the page click "Your Highlights."
You may be asked to login, fill in the login information to the account your kindle is linked.
Your highlights and notes should show, you may copy them anywhere you want.
Simple answer: NO
To annotate inside an ebook would require the file to be altered on the device side and some sites will not allow this due to the DRM they add. That said this is why Kindle creates a secondary file instead of in the ebook itself. This would also depend on the app you are using to view the ebook on.
Some apps that allow Annotation for ...
When you make a highlight or note, a copy is written to the My Clippings file. This is a one-time, one-way operation. Think of it as a record of the notes and highlights that you've made in the past. The file is only a text file, and you can open it on your computer and modify it any way you like, or even delete it, and it will have no effect on what you see ...
If the EPUB is DRM free, you can upload it to your Google Play Books account. Then if you enable note syncing from the mobile app, it'll save the notes in a doc on your Google Drive and use that to sync them across devices. The notes will show up in the web reader too, and changes you make on the web will show up on your other devices. Google has ...
Apparently Calibre does already have the capability to capture the annotations from Kobo.
When Kobo is attached to your computer, the "Send to Device" logo appears as a menu option in Calibre. If you right click on that logo, the bottom menu option is "Fetch annotations (experimental)". One caution however is that Calibre seems to fetch the annotations ...
Got an epub book? Best way at the moment for most qualiity and support is renaming to .txt (or png?) and sending to kindle email adress with convert subject (doesn t even need convert subject here? ; anyway better than calibre mobi conversion way). This way (direct) epub conversion is supported although it s officially not.
TL;DR (today's ...
Kindle forum gave me the solution! Synch only works when in the softwares's "home screen". Now they are properly synched :D sad I must always do it manually, they should automatically synch with Kindle server whenever there's internet available.
2 possible solutions or workarounds.
First, if viewing GPB in a web browser, it is easier to highlight text on more than one page. (I was able to do it).
Second, one workaround on a device might be to reduce text size to the smallest possible size, so that the maximum amount of text is on one book page.
Amazon Support said (on 2019-05-24) that syncing personal documents is not supported.
Here is my chat:
► Amazon: I'm sorry, currently there is no option to see the highlights made in the personal documents.
► Me: Ok, you are saying that Amazon deleted the website that allowed viewing highlights made in personal documents. Then I still have the other 2 ...
The Sony Reader software that came with the reader has an option to export notes as an RTF file. I'm not sure whether or not you can import the notes into another device though.
I'm not able to find a user manual and I don't have the software on this laptop (I do on my other one, so perhaps I can find the information later). However, I did find a blog that ...
The Clippings.io allows you to extract your kindle notes and highlights and put them into a word, excel, pdf doc - or send them straight to evernote. Also you can search your notes, archive them, share them and tag them!
This is possible, but I have not found an "off-the-shelf" solution.
You can add annotations with a work-in-progress-extension for calibre:
The source includes code to handle Kindle notes, but not any for Kobo. However it should be possible to add that starting e.g. from this kobo specific code.
Short answer, you can't see them in the reader pane.
You'll find the annotations at:
Edit Metadata > Custom medata tab > Annotations
(Presuming you created a custom column called 'Annotations', which is the default name suggested by the plugin.)
freda lets you highlight and add notes, but you cannot underline text.
Also epub files doesn't save the notes in itself like pdf does. epub readers that support adding notes, including freda, save them externally. So if you open the epub file in another computer, the notes are lost.
Looks like my Ghostery browser extension was messing with the site. I was able to pause it and reattempt and found the notes made their way through. I drilled down into the trackers that were blocked, one was "Site Analytics: Google Analytics" another was "Advertising: Technorati". It was the Technorati tracker that was required for the GPB notes features to ...
This is a very interesting question, and I did some preliminary research on it.
The basic problem here is that PDFs are generally not considered to be an editable document and that most annotation solutions are specific to one software platform.
Because PDFs are considered to be more as output than an editable document, versioning hasn't really been ...
My old kindle 1stgen and gen3 with the side buttons allowed highlights that spanned multiple pages. My touch screens with e ink displays, without buttons, seem to have this problem. I can't say if the nice ones with buttons, in addition to touch functionality, allow this.
My Kobo Glo, updated to the 3.12.1 firmware version, can highlight and take notes on a multiple pages basis.
Anyway, I noticed that it only does it when using Kepub files and not with standard Epub books (Kobo ereaders have two different viewing engines for standard epub and their own slightly modified kepub).
If this is acceptable to you, you can use ...
I suspect that the deregistering and re-registering may have lost the connection between that book and your "My Clippings" file. If you have allowed Amazon to synch your highlights and bookmarks, you may be able to remove the book from your kindle and then re-download it from Amazon. That ought to re-load the bookmarks.
You might also try creating a ...
The KDE linux program Okular has the ability to store annotations inside PDF files:
By default, Okular saves annotations in the local data directory for each user. Since KDE 4.9, it's optionally possible to store them directly in a PDF file by choosing "File -> Save As...", so they can be seen in other PDF viewers.
Note that this feature requires ...
If you use google there is an extension/app for kindle. I am a blogger and I review E books so it is very necessary for me to be able to use notes from a tablet to my pc and even on my phone. I have authors send me ARC books to review all the time. Use the app to send yourself the book in a pdf file. There are several free conversion sites online you can use ...
If you don't use an Amazon account (which i don't since i don't want all my private data uploaded and shared - Amazon records every page you turn...), you can simply use Calibre to download your annotations to your laptop:
