I was halfway highlighting a book using Acrobat Reader on an Android tablet when I dropped the tablet. The screen still 'sort of' works but is not usable as such (constant blinking etc). The tablet is still mountable on a computer.

Is there a way to salvage the pdf including the highlights? (to be clear, i have the pdf saved elsewhere, but not the highlights)

Many thanks,


It turns out the reader on the tablet saved the highlights on the fly. The reason i couldn't see those is because i was opening it using 'Document Viewer' on Linux Mint. Using Adobe Acrobat on Windows shows the highlights as expected.
