Sync back to Calibre

Is it possible to sync back updated books/PDFs to Calibre library? I read my PDFs on Android and would like to sync back any changes like hi lights to Calibre.

There are two ways to get a book from the device into calibre.

In both cases, first connect CC as a wireless device and select the device view.
  • Method 1: right-click on the book and select "add book to library". Downside: the book is added as a new book unless the book merging options prevent that.
  • Method 2: right-click on the book and select "save to disk". Put the book somewhere it will be easy to find. Switch to the library view, select the book, press E to edit metadata, press the "add format" icon (a book with a plus sign on it), navigate to where you saved the book, select it, and press OK. This will replace the copy in your library with the copy from your device.
Note that unless the annotations are stored in the book itself, neither method will solve your problem.

Hmm. Abandoning calibre and CC with something that can provide better synchronization. (Paid for CC but that's okay.)

What "something" would that be?
Do you plan to write one as there is nothing better in the app stores
