Hi,

as I have since found out as the proud new owner of a PRS-T1, the PC version of the Reader software (haven't tried the Mac version, but I suspect it's identical in functionality) doesn't allow you to import annotations - you can just export your own annotations and marks to RTF.

The good news is that the reader itself uses a common and open database format (sqlite v3 to be precise) to store all kinds of metadata including the annotations, so somebody with a bit of coding experience could easily roll his or her own annotations importer/exporter.

However, since the positioning of the annotations seems to be tied tightly to the document structure, reimported annotations will only ever properly work with the same edition of the ebook they were exported from.

Cheers,
Thomas
