What is this Add On for Comments & Highlights in Adobe Acrobat?

Need robust highlight & comment exporting for PDFs.

Found this description here:

OK. I found an awesome tool in the [Adobe Acrobat] app Highlights!

My workflow is now read and highlight in Preview, Save, Open in Highlights and export to .pdf (several other options available.) Easy.

The new .pdf is very easy to read, the highlights I made are collated under a page number reference.

Thanks for replies to my question. Problem is solved.

Just about to buy another brand which has good export of comments, but would prefer to use Adobe Acrobat DC.  

Anyone have any experience with this additional comment exporting app inside Adobe Acrobat called "Highlights" described above?  Need some screenshots of what this looks like in Adobe Acrobat?  It seems like it is a US$30 add-on.  Am I right?  Is it available if I'm using the subscription model for Adobe Acrobat?  Not the highlighting feature itself - that's a default feature.  It seems to be some kind of add-on offered by Adobe that cleanly exports comments & highlights.

Many thanks!!!!

Is this Highlighter and comments option you are referring? See my picture. It comes together with the Adobe Acrobat Pro DC.
Acrobat Pro you can buy either subscription or perceptual licences.

Hi Kesavan,

Ah!  Thanks for your reply.  Not the highlighter itself but, seems like, some kind of US$30 one-time purchase add-on that allows one to easily export the highlights to various formats.

Can you see anything like that?

Hi Kesavan,

Reading in the Adobe website from other users it seems to be a paid-for add-on?

I could not bring myself to pay 30 $ for highlights, on top of my Adobe subscription!

I would've expected Adobe to have completely nailed the 'pdf annotation' use case, themselves - despite Acrobat Pro's extensive functionality, simple PDF annotation & export of those notes seems not possible.

How does it look to you?

I need the functionality of exporting highlights & comments with page number information into .csv, .txt and .doc formats.

Many thanks!!

It is an add on, third-party.  Not required.  Turning on copy text to highlights in default Adobe DC should do the trick.
