Bookmarks/Annotations Advice

Hi everyone,

Looking for some advice with "syncing bookmarks/annotations".

When an epub is sent to a device, I can then read and mark up with bookmarks, highlights etc.

How do I then get these bookmarks back into the calibre copy of the ebub?

Do I have remove the ebup held in the calibre library and replace with the marked up copy or can calibre itself do this? If so how do I set it up.

Thanks,

Kev.

Sorry, but it's not possible to sync highlights between Calibre and any other program.

Use the calibre content server and read in your browser on the device. If you setup user account sin the server then bookmarks/annotations/last read position will allsync automatically across all your devices, per user account.

kovidgoyal,

Thanks for the advice. Did not know highlighting was available in the content server until I tried it.

The problem I have is that the only computer running 24/7 is a Windows 2012 server and as you know to start the content server I need to log on as a user. This means that every time an update is installed the content server goes offline. I normally leave the server running without interference - provides email and web hosting as well.

It will only be on one device where there will be an ebook with highlighted text that I would wish to keep for future reference. I can do what I want manually.

1) Add the epub to the device.

2) Read and highlight selected text.

3) Delete the library copy.

4) Copy/Move the device version to the calibre library.

My original question was to see if this could be automated.

I have since I first posted been wondering if I could automate this by creating a plugin although the effort might not be worth it for the few books that I need to highlight.

Thanks again for the responce.

Kev.

You dont need to log on as a user, you should be able to create a wrapper for calibre-server.exe that starts it as a windows service. It's on my TODO list to add support for that myself, but given that I am not a windows dev its rather a low priority.
