Following up from this post from another thread: https://forum.literatureandlatte.com/t/2-0-ebooks-ipad/8991/1
Using the .pdf mark up features on both GoodReader (ipad) and Adobe Acrobat Pro (Mac Laptop), I marked up a script. I then tried bringing the marked-up .pdf back into Scrivener to use as a “scrivening”. (Basically, I used the split screen view. I had the annotated .pdf on the bottom screen and I had the Scrivener draft of the script on the top screen. I wanted to go through the annotated .pdf and use those notes as guides to make changes to the draft). What I found was that when I viewed the annotated GoodReader .pdf in Scrivener, not all of the .pdf mark-ups appeared. Notes worked perfectly (note icons appear on the .pdf and if you click on the icon, the note appears in the left margin of the document). Highlighted text appears correctly, as do drawings and cross-outs. However, the “replacement text” and “insert text” mark-ups do not appear on the GoodReader annotated .pdf when viewed inside Scrivener.
On the document marked up using Adobe Acrobat Pro, I had a similar, but slightly different result. “Replacement Text” mark appears, but text window only pops up after a weird delay. “Insert text” mark-ups do not appear.
Absent my dream Scrivener iPad app, I’ve been using GoodReader to proofread documents. It’d be very handy to be able to reliably import those marked up .pdf’s back into Scrivener.
