I'm looking for a way to extract highlights and comments/notes from sets of PDF files into a CSV file. Is there a way to do it in PDF Explorer that I might have missed, or perhaps any suggestions in this regard?

Thanks in advance.

Not possible with the current PDF Explorer public release, but the script functionality of the PDF-ShellTools, v3.1 and up (that will be also available in the next PDFE version), has access to the PDF annotations, so a script can be used to create such functionality.

I've duplicated this forum topic in the PDF-ShellTools section of the forum and have posted there a sample script that dump to a CSV file all the PDF annotations found in each PDF.

That same script will work with the next PDF Explorer, higher than the actual 1.5.66.2, version release.
