    Default Save Okular Reviews

    I have OpenSUSE 12.2 and Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS. I can insert reviews in Okular by pressing F6 in Suse but if I look at those files through Okular from Ubuntu, they are no more there. Also, reviews added from Ubuntu are not available in Suse. I am going to install Suse 12.3 and I am sure the reviews would be lost. Is there any way to save the reviews?

    Thanx in advance....

    Okular allows you to review and annotate your documents. Annotations created in Okular are automatically saved in the internal local data folder for each user. Okular does not implicitly change any document it opens.
    source:- Annotations

    Where is the 'internal local data folder' (bolded above)? Is it not possible to copy it from the home of suse to the home of ubuntu, making necessary changes?

    Thanx again...

    you might be interested in this
    Annotations are not only limited to PDF files, they can be used for any format Okular supports.
    Since KDE 4.2, Okular has the ́ ́document archiving ́ ́ feature. This is an Okular-specific for-
    mat for carrying the document plus various metadata related to it (currently only annotations).
    You can save a ́ ́document archive ́ ́ from the open document by choosing File → Export As
    → Document Archive. To open an Okular document archive, just open it with Okular as it
    would be e.g. a PDF document.
    Since Okular 0.15 you can also save annotations directly into PDF files. This feature is only avail-
    able if Okular has been built with version 0.20 or later of Poppler rendering library. You can use
    File → Save As... to save the copy of PDF file with annotations.
    and
    source:- http://docs.kde.org/stable/en/kdegra...lar/okular.pdf
    and also this
    In other words, either all
    annotations are saved in okular's local data directory, or all annotations are
    saved in the PDF file.
    Actually, encrypted PDFs are an exception to this rule: since they cannot be
    modified by Poppler at the moment (Save As is grayed out), you can't edit
    existing annotations in such files. New annotations are always saved in
    okular's local data directory and, yes, in this case you'll see both embedded
    and local annotations in the same document. But you can distinguish them: the
    embedded ones are read-only.

    I'd never met a person yet that would use that feature. I read a lot about
    rating and reviewing in the recent releases of some applications in KDE.
    And I've allways wondered about it.

    So, my (very real and serious) question is: Why ?

    What is the point of reviewing music/documents, etc....
    Are you a critic?

    I mean, even from this message, I gather the reviews are local to your own
    personal environment on your own computer, so I guess you're not submitting
    e review for someone else, but for yourself.

    Why ?

    I download many mathematics ebooks where I mark important sums and take notes. I do a lot of sums this way, from books which are not available in my country or the ones which are too costly. Thus, I need the review feature a lot. But I am afraid, if I upgrade to 12.3, the reviews may be lost. Also, I cannot access the reviews from my other operating system, Ubuntu.

    Hope it makes it all clear...
