Links to PDF Highlights

What I’m trying to do

Create text or image excerpts from PDF documents that I can add to canvas cards when synthesizing ideas from across a body of academic literature.

Things I have tried

After searching Discord and the forums, the only potential solution I’ve stumbled upon involves the use of Obsidian PDF++. It appears that this plugin offers the functionality I’m looking for when creating text excerpts.

I’m a bit concerned about the following warning on the plugin page and therefore am curious if there are other pathways to achieve the same outcome?

  • This plugin relies on many private APIs of Obsidian, so there is a relatively high risk that this plugin may break when Obsidian is updated. For this reason, I hope this plugin’s functionalities will be natively supported by Obsidian itself so that we won’t need this plugin anymore.
