Kobo - Export highlights

For anyone looking to export highlights of an ebook off a Kobo E-reader, here's an easy way:

  1. After you've plugged your Kobo into your computer and can see the Kobo drive, there should be a file called Kobo eReader.config. It’s located on the Kobo drive in the ".kobo" folder inside the "Kobo" folder.

  2. Right-click on the Kobo eReader.config file and choose to open it with a basic text-editing program like Notepad.

  3. Add the following code to the file at the bottom, or anywhere as long as it’s separate from the other code:

  4. Safely eject your Kobo ereader from the computer.

  5. With this, the long press menu of a book will have an extra option, "Export highlights". Using this will prompt you for a file name and export the annotations to that file in the root directory of the device.

I have a Kobo Clara HD (highly recommend) and can confirm this works like a charm.
