Mac) Can you export your highlighted .epub file with the highlightings preserved?

Is there an app that can export your .epub file with the all the highlightings that you have made to the file intact so that you can post it online so that other people can download your highlighted version of the .ePub?

It's easy in iBooks. In the Notes section, tap the Share Icon, choose Edit Notes, Select All, then hit Share, and email it. iBooks creates a nicely formatted email with all of your highlights and notes, along with surrounding words for context.

If I'm understanding you correctly, you want to export the book with the highlights as one single item to post (i.e. the highlights 'flattened' into the book'. Right?

If this is so, I don't think iBooks does that. The notes and the book are separate files that would have to be viewed separately.

Of course, this feature is essentially coming up in Marvin. Today in Marvin, you can already export all highlights and notes with a single tap in an XHTML file, and in a later Marvin version, you'll also be able to import that file into the associated e-book. This means that if you want to share all your bookmarks, highlights and notes with someone else, all you'll have to do is share your XHTML file. Whoever downloads that file and imports it into Marvin, will see the e-book highlighted, annotated and bookmarked exactly as on the original, someone else's reading device.

I have just run into the 1000 books dropbox issue.
I appreciate from the previous comments that this is externally imposed, but i wonder if i can do anything to ensure which 1000 books from dropbox are picked. Perhaps placing them in the dropbox root directory rather than further in?

I appreciate i can reverse the process and go to a single book in Dropbox and ask it be opened in Marvin. This give a problem with the particular book as Marvin insists it is already in the library but i cannot seem to find it.

Hi Adrian, Marvin will complain that the book is already in the library, if a book with the same file name exists. The problem is that since the book in Dropbox isn't already downloaded, Marvin cannot perform a more accurate meta data match. In other words, ideally, the file names of books in DB should be unique.

I haven't found a way to instruct DB which of the 1000 files to display. I've written to DB support but I'm still waiting for an answer.

Looks like an internal Search or filter function for Marvin's Library might be useful for those users who store lots of books in it. (Although I advise against such practice: the cloud, such as Dropbox or SugarSync, is more suitable for permanent books storage, while the iPad's precious and limited storage space makes it more appropriate for temporary storage of only those books you're currently reading. This will be particularly true after a future Marvin version will make it possible to restore all your bookmarks, hightlights and notes from a previously exported XHTML file; there will, then, really be little reason to keep all books you've read in the past permanently stored on your reading device. Well, at least until reading devices with terabytes of storage space become standard.)

Sometimes after importing a book into Marvin, it may not show the author and/or title correctly if the book's meta-tags are messed up, which may make the book difficult to locate among hundreds of other titles in Marvin's library. If Marvin says that the book already is in your Library, though, it definitely is. Have you tried minimizing your Library view, which makes it possible to locate a particular book faster? Also, let's not forget Marvin has 2 distinct "library shelves": "current books" and "books already read", so make sure to look for the book in both locations.

I've had a similar problem lately -- I wanted to upload the corrected EPUB version of a book into Marvin, but Marvin wouldn't let me, saying the book is already there. Maybe Marvin could ask the user a question similar to the one asked by operating systems during copy operations: "This book already seems to be in your Library. Do you still wish to import it?" And the 3 buttons with options to reply to such a question might be:
  • Yes, import the book and overwrite the previous copy
  • Yes, import the book but give it a different file-name (preserving also the previous copy)
  • Cancel the import of this book
