Getting text of highlights off of ka1?

I have made some highlights on my ka1, and I would like to get those into a text file or something like that. The Kindle had a text from on the device and a website where you could copy or view your highlights and notes easily. I'm guessing that Kobo doesn't have a website, but is there a text file or something where the highlights are stored?

This is a library book, so I'd prefer to not have to have the book available in order to view the highlights long term, and I don't want to have to pull the whole book into Calibre to get it working, if possible.

Thanks!!!

There is a few ways to do it and it has been discussed many times in this forum. A search for "annotation" should find them.

- Extract highlights to a text file

Edit file Kobo eReader.conf at .kobo/kobo (inside the ereader memory) and add the following line (if [FeatureSettings] line already exists, don't add it again but put the other line under it):

[FeatureSettings]
ExportHighlights=true

Save changes, disconnect and that's all. At the book menu (inside the library keep pressed the book till the menu appears) there is a new option: "Export Highlightings". Select it and define a filename. The .TXT file is added to the root of the ereader memory and includes both highlightings and notes.
For editing Kobo eReader.conf use a Linux compatible editor as Notepad++ or vim.

An for those of us that don't read Spanish, most of the options described on that page are in https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=218376. All the rest have been discussed at some point, so a search should find them.
