In Kindle I have to highlight, then add a note, which can be messy when I send errors to the author.

The best feature would be if there was an option to email all notes/highlights and it would include the original page numbers where those notes would be found. Not sure how feasible that is, maybe a Proof Readers Cool Reader Version?? (Hopeful)

Thanks again!
Text range bookmarks / notes / corrections feature is planned for nearest time. It already exists in CoolReader for other plaforms and will be ported to Android soon.

Please find below description of planned functionality.

All Notes are stored internally as Bookmarks.
Currently, only one type of bookmarks is supported in CR3/Android: position bookmark w/o range and comment (actually, points to first word on page at the time bookmark is created).
New types of bookmark should be added:
Comment Bookmark: range, text containing in range, and comments for text.
Correction Bookmark: range, text containing in range, and corrected text.

To add range bookmark (comment or correction), toggle Selection mode (using menu or action assigned on some key or tap zone).
Now, selected text is simple copied to clipboard.
Instead, toolbar with possible actions will appear on end of selection:
copy to clipboard/add comment bookmark/add correction bookmark/search in dictionary/...
Once add bookmark action is selected, bookmark editing dialog should appear, with "Selection text" readonly textbox, and "Comment/Correction" editable text box.
If bookmark is saved, it should be available in Bookmarks dialog list.
Optionally, it will be possible to highlight all range bookmarks in text. Long tap on highlighted range will open bookmark edit dialog.
Internally, all bookmarks are stored in CR3 application database.
It should be possible to export bookmarks into file, either in TXT (human readable format) or XML (e.g. to share bookmarks between devices, or with Desktop version of reader).

Described functionality is planned to be implemented in 1-2 weeks.

Do you have any suggestions?
