Saving notes in epub books.

Asked this:
If I make some notes or underline text in an epub book, do these edits stay with the book when the book is put back in my library/Calibre? I don't recall any specific instructions for saving a book in order to retain notes.


Got this answer:
"Not if you are using Calibre.

Yes if you use SONY's Library.

It sucks, but if you want to keep your annotations, you have to deal with SONY's software."

Any chance that a future Calibre release will allow for saving notes in epub books?

Pity, it should be a great feature, especially for us Sony users. Maybe a ticket ?

In the meantime, with my PRS-650, I managed to backup/restore my annotations with a batch file (file.bat) in a easy way, to keep them in case of format:

@echo off
:start
cls
echo Choose 1 to backup from PRS-650 to PC
echo Choose 2 to backup from PC to PRS-650
set /p userinp=choose a number(1-2):
set userinp=%userinp:~0,1%
if "%userinp%"=="1" goto 1
if "%userinp%"=="2" goto 2
echo invalid choice
goto start

:1
cd\
xcopy "F:\Digital Editions" "c:\ReaderBackup\Digital Editions" /s /y
xcopy F:\Database\cache c:\ReaderBackup\Database\cache /s /y
goto end

:2
cd\
xcopy "c:\ReaderBackup\Digital Editions" "F:\Digital Editions" /s /y
xcopy c:\ReaderBackup\Database\cache F:\Database\cache /s /y
goto end
:end
pause>nul

Where F: is the drive letter of the PRS-650. Anyway I hope that ticket will be covered eventually.
