Hi Guys, I am trying to convert the multicolor highlights I have made on a PDF book to excel. So what I am trying to achieve is an excel sheet summary with only the highlighted notes with 4 colors I have used while going through my studies. Do you guys think it is possible? Is there a program that could extract the highlighted text in the PDF and place it on an excel sheet with the colors I have used?
You guys can view a sample of what I mean in the screenshots in the link below. -

Thank you, Awas

I'm not aware of any program that does that, and it can't be done using a script.
If you're interested in someone developing such a tool for you, feel free to contact me privately.
