Import PDF annotations

19.03.2018, 10:53

I frequently read and annotate PDFs (using external software like Preview, PDF Expert, etc.) that I then decide need more detailed coding in MaxQDA.

However, as of MQ 18, MQ does not import PDF annotations. It would be very helpful if these could be imported automatically, converting (e.g.) highlights to the corresponding color code, converting text annotations to memos, etc.

As is, it's a deterrent to using MQ when all existing work annotating a PDF is lost on import.
