Instapaper highlights integration for the picker

Postby francescoragazzi » 2015-03-25 08:39

One of the great features of the Citavi web picker is the semi-automated import of Kindle highlights. Would such a feature be possible also for Instapaper highlights? That would be a great workaround until we have a fully-fledged Citavi web app!

Hello Francesco,

Citavi's highlights and annotations are saved as layers on top of PDF documents. I understand that Instapaper adds highlights to web pages that would eventually have to be imported into Citavi, too. Since Citavi at the moment only allows for the annotation of web pages after they have been transformed into the PDF format, I do not see how we could import Instapaper highlights that have been added within Instapaper and add them as a layer to the PDF version of the web pages. I do not think that this is going to work.

Best regards
Patrick

Dear Patrick
Thanks for the quick reply. I see the technical problem. What I was thinking was more akin to what the Citavi picker does on the Amazon Kindle Highlights page, allowing you to semi-automatically import excerpts highlighted in your Kindle and listed on that page into the Citavi project. I imagine that a small script could "read" highlights on an Instapaper webpage, and offer a small button (just like on the Amazon Kindle Highlights page) to add that directly to Citavi. But, yes, it's not the best solution at this point. Can't wait for Citavi's own feature to highlight webpages directly.
