10.5: Annotate non-PDF (raster) images in Preview
Authored by: Philosophize on Jul 08, '08 01:29:50PM

I wish I could have the ability to underline and highlight PDFs in Preview, not just annotate. Acrobat is so bloated that I don't really want to use it all the time, but it's the only PDF reader that lets me mark text (underline, highlight) in a manner similar to how I would mark a printed book.

You can underline or highlight text with Preview in 10.5. Just select some text and go to the "Tools --> Mark Up" menu (or add the controller to the toolbar)

Acrobat is better about selecting text in only one column of a multicolumn PDF, though, so I still use it for most highlighting.

Oh, nice. That's almost a reason to upgrade from 10.4. I was hoping to just wait for another computer, though.

Thanks for the info!

Skim

You should check out Skim. It is designed for things like quickly highlighting text. It is a little clunky in two-column mode, but judicious use of option-dragging works well enough. I like the fact that Apple provides Preview, but for all of my academic paper needs, I've converted to using Skim.
