Highlight text

Highlight text in PDFs as if with a real highlighter pen on paper. Simply select the text marker tool and then move the cursor over the desired text.

Select the highlight colour. So you have a “whole cabinet” full of highlighter pens – one of every imaginable colour.

Annotate & Comment

The annotation function is useful when you are working with multiple people on one document. Comment on texts that have yet to be revised. Size and colour of a comment can be defined individually.

Annotations are represented by a small speech bubble icon in the PDF.

Double-clicking the bubble allows you to open, read or edit it.

Try PdfEditor for free!

The trial version contains all the functions of the PdfEditor full version, however, it inserts a watermark in all edited PDFs (a backup of the original file is, of course, created). Needless to say, this limitation is not present in the full version.
