Annotation and comment search

Continuing the discussion from Highlight and annotate PDFs in Paperpile:

Hiya,

thanks for all the work that you do, i’m really glad I ran across y’all.

Right now I’m putting all my notes for each pdf in the … well, notes section rather then comments or annotations because I like being able to search across all my notes in each pdf. I was wondering if search of annotations/comments across docs would ever be a feature?

Thanks!

I was wondering if search of annotations/comments across docs would ever be a feature?

This is an excellent feature suggestion. Are there any plans for this?

Yes, that’s actually something we are already working on.

Great to hear, thank you!

Thank you for this info. Unfortunately most of the titles have other characters that are making them indistinguishable to the auto-update. Is there any way for me to download the RIS version and somehow manually attach it to existing articles?

@ktejeda I replied on our original exchange :point_left:t4:

Is this feature available now? Or likely to be available soon?

I just came here to make this suggestion.

Working on a project right now and juggling several sources. Making annotations in the Paperpile app and annotating the pdfs in the web app.

Would love the ability to tag certain annotations with a project name that I could then use to search across sources. At minimum a search function to search for a keyword I place in notes, comments, annotations would be a great help.
