I’ve got a question. I run a course at a university, and I’ve been using Evernote to keep all the readings in one place. They’re all super long, so its necessary for me to highlight important passages so I can refer to them later again. They’re all PDFs, so on my Macbook I can just open the files in Preview and highlight away. When I hit Save, the Evernote version of the article gets updated, which means I can view the file (with the highlights) again on another computer, or on my tablet.
But can do I this for Epubs? I prefer to read on my Android tablet for obvious reasons, but I’ve not been able to find an ebook reader that links to Evernote well. If I open an Epub from Evernote, and it opens in PocketBook eReader or whatever, those highlights don’t migrate across to the file in Evernote. Instead it only affects the local file on the tablet’s harddrive. So one thing that that app can do is export highlights as an .html file which I can put in Evernote, which is fine, but I’d much prefer to have the whole book/article available and then easily see the highlights as well, and not just on their own completely out of context.
Does such a thing exist? Do I have to wait for native Epub capabilities some day?
Thanks for your time.
