Thanks a lot.
Hi there,

I am one of the developers for PRS+, the one responsible for the SaveNotepadData addon. I recently added the functionality that I think you are wanting. If you have the "Save Contents of Highlights" option on, then when you highlight text in a book the selected text is saved to a TXT file (including the page number). To be honest, I don't know if it will work for PDFs since I have never tested it. But I know it works fine with EPUB files.

Also, if you add a note to a bookmark, the note is also saved to the same TXT file. So it is actually quite easy now to save quotations and then make comments.

Note that the order of the quotations and comments in the TXT file is the order you make them! There is no way to automatically rearrange them into the proper page number order. But you can always do that later on a PC.

Sincerely,
Ben.
