You can add multiple highlight or redaction boxes to one document. Once you've highlighted or redacted your document, you can see all highlights and redactions for that particular document listed by corresponding page in the "Image Markups & Page Notes" section of the sidebar.

 

If you need to view a version of your document without image markups, click the Toggle Markups viewer tool icon at the top right of the Document Viewer.

How to export highlights using a load file

Load file templates define which metadata is to be exported and how the fields are separated and arranged.

Load file templates are only created as part of the export template process. Once created, the same load file template may be referenced by multiple export templates.   

 

When you click "Create New" in Step 4 of the export template process, you will be prompted to name your new load file template and select the fields that will be included in the export.

 

To include any image markups in your load file, the following options are available:

 

Once your load file and export template are completed, select a folder and choose "Export" from the drop-down menu.

 

Name your export, choose an appropriate export template and proceed. 

ZIP archives will be generated and Nextpoint will notify you when they are ready for download.
