I’m more or less satisfied with Chromium Edge’s built in PDF reader for my MacBook Pro, but not with my interaction with the iPad app.
So, I use a 12.9" iPad Pro with the PaperPile app to read papers (still on my 30 day trial, but liking it) with the Apple Pencil 2 in hand. I mostly have the highlighter tool selected while reading. One annoyance I’m dealing with since the beginning of my trial is that selecting text to highlight with the Pencil 2 is not precise.
Each time I place the pencil tip on the first word of the phrase and then drag, the actual highlighting begins with the second word/token in the selected range of text. I have been able to replicate this almost a 100 percent of times. And this happens with modern, fresh off the press born-digital PDFs (I could understand it to be a PDF formatting problem if it were some old OCR’d texts).
However, simply selecting text (with the highlighter tool off) is precise as it should be. Using a finger to highlight works fine too. There’s something off with how the app’s built-in PDF reader interacts with the Apple Pencil 2.
I wonder if others are facing the same problem.
