Is there a way to make an action (sequ script) for extracting pages that contain some format feature (highlight only; annotations in blue, only)? It's more fine-grained that extracting annotated pages (which I use a lot). tx

Yes, all of that is possible, using a script.

That's a good start. Are there instructions somewhere for making up scripts for this sort of thing?

Here are some good resources to get you started:

General JS tutorial (note that only the core syntax applies to Acrobat): http://www.w3schools.com/js/default.asp
Homepage for Acrobat JavaScript development, including a link to the full API: http://www.adobe.com/devnet/acrobat.html
Free tutorials about Acrobat in general, including many JS related ones: https://acrobatusers.com/tutorials/
A paid-for website with tutorials about Acrobat JavaScript (not related to me): http://www.pdfscripting.com/
My humble web-site with many tools for Acrobat (mostly paid-for, some free): http://try67.blogspot.com

 

The learning curve can be pretty steep at the beginning, though...
