How do I export highlighted text and comments to mame a study or review sheet from a PDF? Both in the iPad version as well as the current version for PC (2019.008.20074). Basic function that any person reading lots of PDFs for college, work or personal study needs.

Old online instructions about turning on Preference about Comments no longer is accessible in my version on iPad or PC.

Does Adobe require I pay $15/month to get this functionality by subscribing to PRO?

(IAnnoate provides it for a lot less money than that.  My solution will be to delete Adobe Reader and go back to iAnnotate on my iPad - but that does not cross over to PC)

Hi Rationalclimateconservati,

The functionality of exporting comment is still available with the latest version of Acrobat DC. There isn't any changes in the commenting preferences. For detailed information you may go through the link- What's new in Adobe Acrobat DC

Note: In Acrobat Reader, commenting features are available only in PDFs that have commenting enabled. PDFs in a review workflow typically include commenting rights.

Old online instructions about turning on Preference about Comments no longer is accessible in my version on iPad or PC.

Exporting comments on Acrobat mobile app was never supported on the any mobile devices. Neither the old version nor the updated.

For PC, you need to follow the steps suggested below or refer to the help article here- Importing and exporting comments, Adobe Acrobat

Export comments to a data file

  • From the options menu in the comments list, choose Export All To Data File.

  • Name the file and choose Acrobat FDF Files (*.fdf) or Acrobat XFDF Files (*.xfdf) for the file type.

  • Specify a location for the file, and then click Save.

Hope this answers your query.

Regards,

Akanchha

Hey

 

This just opened a new pdf doc with all the original stuff and the comments on the side. Is there a way to get the highlighted text (preferably without having to copy paste into comments) out of the original document? I went through a textbook and made highlights but dont want to have to go back through hundreds of pages to copy paste it all out.

Hi there, 

 

Thank you for reaching out.

 

As you just need the highlighted text, you may select "comments only" when creating a comment summary.

Please refer to the steps provided below:

- In the comment tool window at right hand side, click on tree dots as shown below in the screeshot:

- Then select "create comment summary" option from the list that appears.

- In the Create comment summary window, select the radio button for "Comments Only"

comment summary.JPG

- Now, click on Create Comment Summary button provided at the bottom of the window.

Check if that helps.

 

Let us know if you are looking for something else or need any help.

 

Regards,

Meenakshi

In Reader you can do it via the Print dialog by clicking the Summarize Comments button.

Hi, I am having the same problem as others. I want to be able to save my comments (highlighted content) in another document, as thought I have written notes from what I've read. When I click the "summarize comments" button in the print dialogue window, it seems to be generating a version of the file that (a) I don't want, (b) can only be printed out rather than saved on my computer.

The way to do it is by exporting the comments data to an FDF file, and then import that file in another document. However, that is not a built-in feature of Reader, but you can still do it using this (paid-for) tool I've developed: http://try67.blogspot.com/2013/02/reader-importexport-form-data.html

Thanks, but I am not interested in purchasing more software and also having to export a document twice in order to save the highlighted content.
