**NOTE: Applicant must be on OSX (mac) **

I need help creating some text files, from portions of some books that I've marked up.

The general process will be:

1. Looking at scanned, marked up copy for the the highlighted or marked text.

2. Finding and copying that text in a second file (either an ePub or a PDF).

3. Copying and pasting the text into a text file, formatted using the Markdown syntax (explained below)

I've attached a few files that should give you a sense of this process - a scanned PDF, an ePUB file for the book, and a partial example of the "product" text file, with all section headings captured, and the text marked up using markdown.


You'll need *Kitabu* to open and copy from the ePub file, which is available on the Mac App store:   [obscured]  /us/app/kitabu/id492498910?mt=12

In order to write/preview in Markdown, you can either use the online editor dillinger.io, or Lightpaper:   [obscured]  /lightpaper-mac/
