For example, change
<p style="background-color:%(color);">"%(content)" (%(cite))</p>. The wildcard
%(color)is replaced by the annotation color (you can also use %(color_category) for the color category—reddish is red etc). This styling has the same effect but looks a little better:
<p><span style="background-color:%(color);">"%(content)"</span> (%(cite))</p>(b) To create separate notes for color categories: The hidden option
pdfExtraction.colorNotesallows you to create a separate note for each color category (yellow, red, green etc annotations).
For that to work you need
extensions.zotfile.pdfExtraction.colorNotes set to
extensions.zotfile.pdfExtraction.colorAnnotations set to
true. If you have them the other way around, the wildcards will sort of work (you can use them to color things, but it doesn’t get the color name properly). See here, I added the wildcards
%(color_category) respectively at the top:
@Archie after setting the
colorAnnotations to true, you should right click the PDF, then select
Manage attachments > Extract annotations. I don’t think you need anything else unless you want to customize how the annotations look.
