I’m looking to be able to search my PDF annotations, but I found that mac Spotlight does not index inside normal PDF documents in order to find the ‘annotations’. After a lot of research I found out about EagleFiler, which looks like the perfect solution for me. I realize that EagleFiler has support for Skim indexing, but I haven’t been able to establish if EagleFiler is able to index normal (i.e., non-Skim) PDF annotations made in Preview?
The reason for this is that I use iAnnotate on iPad and Preview on my desktop, all synced through dropbox. Trying to convert all my PDFs to Skim format would be time consuming.
I wanted to make sure this is possible before purchasing the program.
