I am trying to review a annotated PDF file on iPad.
Sticky notes annotations appear all right but highlight text will not.
The highlights themselves do show only associated text is missing.
Sounds like a bug.
Can you suggest a usable workaround?
Adobe Reader for iOS was just update on the app store (April 10th)
Still I can see the highlights (yellow marker) and cannot see the embedded highlight text !
Nor can I introduce highlight text of my own.
Are you planning on inplementing this Adobe Reader feature (common to most other platforms)
into the iOS version ?
If you markup a PDF on PC using Adobe Reader and highlight a line and then add a "highlight text" - a remark related and connected to the highlighted text (by double clicking the highlighted text).
This would show as a comment on the PC Adobe Reader while on the iOS recent reader it would still be missing.
The text is highlighted allright but the attached remark is gone.
Also I cannot repeat this king of annotation on iOS - meaning highlight a piece of text and attach a comment to that specific text.
You could easily reproduce this according to my text but if needed I can send you in privete message my PDF file.
Hope this would be fixed, soon.
Ok, so the issue describe is exactly as I expected then. The "comment" that you attach to a highlight annotation in the Desktop Reader is not supported yet in the mobile Reader. After the 4/10 release, we now support adding highlights to text, but we don't yet support attaching a textual comment that goes along with the highlight.
Got a new update to iPad Adobe Reader but still cannot attach text comment to highlighted text nor can I see text that was addd to highlighted text on PC version of Adobe reader.
Is there any estimate on time to fix this incompatibility between the platforms?
I'm having a similar problem. I used Adobe Reader on Windows 7 to add highlights to a PDF
that is in my Dropbox. I just downloaded the latest iOS version of Adobe Reader. But when
I look at the PDF file on my iPad, none of the highlighting appears.
So, what does that mean about you interoperability ? Or about your response to customers request ?
My first post explaining the incompatabiity between iPad and PC versions with regards to annotations
was 10 months ago (see above).
You have released at least three iPad updates since yet did not find the time to make iPad and PC
What a shame.
Can someone recommend a product that runs on iPad and is more compatible with Adobe reader for PC ?
(more compatible than Adobe reader for iPad I mean).
Yes, there is an easy alternative to Adobe Reader on iOS: The free Foxit
for iOS displays highlighting
properly in PDF files created with highlighting on your PC usng Adobe
Reader. Now isn't that silly?
Adobe should hang its head in shame.
