I do not see any highlight symbol on Acobat reader App. For IPad. How do I find it and use it on my document?
Please.....advise me to do.....Thanks
As noted above, highlighint (as well as other useful annotations) are now available. BUT: Generally restricted to electronic use. For example, any annotations made to file cannot be printed or passed on to another App (e.g., iBooks or DocsToGo) -- the annotations are lost in the print or "Open In…" transfer. Annotations are passed if emailed or saved to the computer with iTunes, but can be read ONLY by another Adobe program or Apple's Preview. Preview can print the annotations where the iPad Adobe Reader cannot. I don't know if this is a problem with Adobe or the way other software understands Adobe. Probably a little of both.
The annotations are actually not lost, but instead the issue is that the other viewers don't know how to display them. Most PDF viewers on ios use the Quartz rendering framework that is built into the ios. This framework does not display annotations due to a limitation in the Apple rendering code. However, if you open the document in a Reader that does support annotations (like the Adobe Reader on mobile or Desktop), you would see the anntations.
As for printing annotations from the Mobile Reader: This is a feature we are actively looking at for a release that is coming soon. Please watch for future updates!
We've thought about this, but we've resisted on philosophical grounds. Once an annotation is "flattened", all information about that annotation is lost (like who made it, when it was made and in some cases more important information like text associated with a sticky note). We are planning to add the ability to print a flattened PDF which will make printing work much better for documents with annotations and forms. That is planned for a release that is in review with Apple right now.
