Exporting Annotations

Comments can be exported from the current document into a file in FDF, XFDF, .txt. or XML format. Comments from Text Annotations, Graphics Annotations, and Sound Annotations will be exported. Hyperlinks are not considered comments in PDF format and thus are not exported.

Comments can be exported in the following formats

FDF: File format created by Adobe that is supported by most PDF applications

XFDF: Extended FDF file format created by Adobe that is supported by most PDF applications

Text: Simple text file (.txt) that will contain all of the annotation information

XML: File format that is similar to an Excel file that will contain all of the annotation information

  1. From the menu, choose Comments > Export Comments
  2. Select whether to export in FDF, XFDF, Text, or XML format. This will display a save dialog.
  3. Select the location and name of the file to export to and click Save
