Annotation and syncing

To answer my "export the annotations" questions from the Support chat, I found this: https://www.matteopezzi.com/how-to-export-annotations-on-kobo-aura/

While this doesn't help with syncing, it does at least let me preserve my annotation history.. just in case.

For the record, there are several ways to get annotations from the Kobo devices. If you search here you will find posts from me outlining them, including that one. It's probably been a couple of years since I last posted the list, but, nothing has changed and it is still correct.

It depends on what you are doing with the annotations, if Annotations Plugin or Kobo Utilities plugin (both in Calibre and both work) is most suitable.
Annotations Plugin: Can fetch for ALL books and puts result in book Custom Metadata. Works for other things than Kobo.
Kobo Utilities: Quickly fetches for selected book. Best suited for copy/paste into an external file per book, such as when proof editing one large novel.
AFAIK, "davidfor" maintains both of these.
There may be a third method in Calibre.
It's only with the Sony eReader that I DON'T use Calibre for Annotations, and its PC application is only Windows/Mac and horrid. So I use Calibre and Kobo as I have entirely migrated to Linux after nearly 30 years, though I've done Linux servers since 1998.
I only occasionally use the Kindle for annotation.
