Use Calibre for Sony reader highlights bookmarks and annotations

Hi everyone.

I bought a Sony PRS-T1 as what I need is to read PDFs and be able to highlight/bookmark/annotate them. It seemed to be the only reader to manage it well.

My problem is that Reader for PC is by far the most unreliable and user-unfriendly interface I have come across. For the second time in 6 months, my files have become corrupt and I must delete them and re-import my books into Reader for PC... which means that I will lose all my highlights/bookmarks/annotations (again).

I was wondering if Calibre can manage these highlights/bookmarks/annotations so I can use it instead of Reader for Sony. If that's the case, how can I import my PDFs with those highlights/bookmarks/annotations from the actual reader into Calibre?

Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you all!

Regards

As far as I know calibre can not help you with Sony highlights, bookmarks, or annotations. There is limited support for notes via the Sony PRS-T1 notes (handwriting) exporter plugin.

DoctorOhh it seems that this plugin would allow me to keep my highlights/bookmarks etc. by combining them into the PDF file directly. This is brilliant! I can't wait to try it, thank you very much.

Dear Amanda, I have to say that the PRS-T1 is a versatile e-reader that deals very nicely with PDFs (as a researcher I needed something that reads PDFs and allowed... precisely... annotations, etc.). However your Reader for PC software is the most unreliable and user-unfriendly interface I have dealt with in my entire career as a geek. Twice in 3 months, my files have become corrupt and I have lost the annotations that I spent months making. There is no way to combine annotations in the actual file so that you can have a degree of cross-platform freedom. It constantly bugs. Just check my history with support, I never managed to get it to do what I expect from it and it spoils the whole PRS-T1 experience. What a shame. I have been a loyal Sony-buyer for 30 years, I have an overpriced VAIO too and numerous other items. But I hate to say that with Reader for PC you definitely lost me as a customer.

Must say I agree about the Reader software. I have the PRS600, PRS650 and just got the T2. I love my readers but have had nothing but problems with the software versions. I must say I also don't like the Kobo software as well. Calibre is the easiest and most efficient way to handle my library.

Amanda can you please let us know if there is any way one can re-import the annotated/highlighted/bookmarked files on the reader back into Reader for PC?
