Highlight, make notes on Nook

Hello,

 

If I transfer a pdf file from my PC to Nook and then highlight or make notes on it, does the highlighting remain when I transfer it back to my PC? How does it work?

 

Thanks

Re: Highlight, make notes on Nook

Yes, I'm interested in this funtion as well.  Most of the technical publications for my job are in PDF format, and it would be much easier for me to read/study them using an e-reader while I'm traveling (which I do a LOT) so I've been keeping an eye on the other e-readers.  How does the highlighting function work on the nook?  And I know it would be a stretch, but a few times a year, new versions of my publications are released, with only a few changes to various words/paragraphs (kind of expensive to re-print a two-thousand page document every time one of these minor changes comes out, hence the reason for them being in PDF format) would it be possible to transfer the highlights to the new version, assuming no changes to the text I've highlighted?  Maybe a program for this just on my computer, which I could then use to upload the new, highlighted version, to my nook?   Thanks!
