How do I export all of my annotations?

You can export all of the text-based annotations into a PDF document or a CSV file format.

You may wish to export your annotations so that you can study them later, test your recall as a student or to print them out as a hard copy. ReadCloud lets you export all your annotations including the annotated text as well as your comments or notes added to the text into a separate file for this purpose. 

Open up the Annotations Export tool 

From your ReadCloud bookshelf, select the title you wish to export annotations from and right click (or long hold on a touch device). This will bring up the option window  where you can select "More" and then select "Export Annotations".
