Re: Has anyone reviewed or edited using PDF marked up by Acrobat tools?
For diagrams, it's a nightmare. Stuff, especially sticky notes, don't stay
where you put them, so markup rearranges itself and becomes
That's interesting. I recall using the text and graphic tools to draw arrows and circles to indicate where the change was needed (with an associated number to identify the corresponding note), and they stayed put. I could then put a corresponding number in the sticky note, which could be moved around as usual. It was all relatively easy to do (once I got the hang of the drawing tools) and quite clear to the writer/illustrator, unless of course I had a huge number of comments (which would be a problem in handwritten markup too).
Or am I misremembering what stayed put? Anyone else used the technique I described?
BTW, I like the colour JPG idea! I've used that, too, when reviewing web pages.
