Highlight/Comment PDFs

I bring in a lot of PDFs as my research material. Adding the ability to add in-line comments a la the word processor side would be awesome.


Sorry, there are no plans to add PDF editing capabilities to Scrivener. You can use the “Open in External Editor” to open the PDF file in a PDF editor, though, then add comments and save it, which will save it back into your Scrivener project.

All the best,

What about the ability to highlight at least? That capability is, after all, touted in the video tutorial.

Because you can that already. :slight_smile: Select and hit cmd-shift-H. Any colour you want as long as it’s yellow.

I agree with Michael. I share the same concern.

What concern? What do you agree with?
