Hi all, fantastic session yesterday. BTW, @archurhh asked yesterday if the highlight colors would cover over when annotating a file. Guess what, I figured out how to get annotations from Highlights App to Tinderbox so that when it comes into Tinderbox and you apply a stamp the following takes place.

The annotation is,

  1. Cited
  2. Assigned a priority 0, 1, 2, 3
  3. Assigned a type based on the color, e.g. Quote, Note (aka my idea), Annotation, Image
  4. Assigned a prototype - Note, Quote, Annotation, or Image (also applies the color)
  5. Links to the location in the PDF file where the annotation occurred
  6. Stores the page number
  7. Parses out all the delimiters and creates a clean note
  8. If an annotation is an image, links to and enables a preview of the image
  9. If the annotation is a quote assigns a special format
  10. Assigns the Pandoc preview to process citations
  11. Cleans out the junk you don’t need anymore.

I make up a video on this later in the week.
