Can I export a list of my annotations?

How do I export a list of my annotations?

After marking up your script, it's sometimes helpful to export your annotation data, separate from the script itself.

That's why Scriptation offers an export option called Annotation Summary. Within a new PDF file, you can view all of your annotations as a list, and then copy/paste that data into any workflow you desire.

Here's how it's done.

Tap the Share icon.

Tap Annotation Summary, then tap Share.

From the share window, select a method of sharing or saving your new PDF.

Then, open the PDF summary. From here, you can view all of your annotations, or copy / paste the data into another program, perhaps to create a breakdown or chart.

COMING SOON: We are planning to develop a tagging feature that will allow users to identify elements, locations, departments within Scriptation, and export that data in spreadsheet format (for Numbers and Excel) to create reports and breakdowns.

NOTE: Annotation Summary details all annotations across all layers in chronological order of when the annotation was created. For an annotation summary of only specific layers, make a copy of your file, delete the unwanted layers, and export the Annotation Summary from the copy.
