Hi all, I have been away on holidays for almost two weeks (: so that is why I reply only now.

The answer that Iņigo gave is correct for the first version. The 2nd version should open a window in which you can select a directory (preferably a copy) of the SD card using the open-menu-command. All documents that contain annotations (in the metadata.db file) will be processed. (Original files are not changed but a few new files are generated.)
Did you already get it to work?

The main purpose of this 'exercise' was to create a tool for PC, I did not think of porting it to the DR itself. But I guess that it should be possible. It will not be my main focus. While reading documents I make some annotations at interesting part so I can look at them in more detail later (I use my DR in the train). So I created this tool to merge the annotations off-line, so that I can quickly look-up the interesting parts and follow-up on them.

Once the used modules gets ported, it should not be that difficult to create an 'open with'-command[1] that calls a python-script to convert a single file (for dr1000).

Did anyone use the (2nd) script already?

[1] See dr1000hackx, that allows to install alternative commands for extensions.
