I regularly highlight resources, particularly books I read on my iPad, monographs. Of course the highlights display on my mac using the app. It would be nice, if I could choose to view just my highlight on that resource, so I'd see just my highlights, without needing to scroll through hundreds of pages of the book to find the things I highlighted. Or even better to see a list of resources with highlights and then the ability to view just the things I highlighted in that resource. Would be real helpful to keep track of stuff I didn't want to forget.

Is there a way to view a resource this way? In some cases I've read books and only bothered to highlight a couple things. I assumed there was something in the section where it keeps track of notes you make, but can't find it there either.

{Highlight *} as an Inline Search of a resource will do just as you require.

Do the same in Basic Search of All Resources to see a list of resources with highlights


Windows 11 & Android 8

Thanks Dave. I think I figured that out or something like that the other day, as I was able to just view the quotes. I'll have to read through that link, probably will show me something I didn't know.

Another way to view just your highlights or notes within resources is to use the Notes tab in the Sidebar of a resource:

Click on either the Highlights or Notes filter in the Notes tab of the Sidebar and your resource will only show what you've highlighted or the places you've taken a note. You can also just show the text you've highlighted or you can show the highlight within a paragraph or article by selecting an option in the Sentence dropdown:

Also, apart from using the Sidebar, you can simply jump from one highlight/note to the next within a resource by selecting "Annotation" in the dropdown on the Navigation bar and then hitting the up/down arrows:
