Continuing to enjoy MetaPDF. This is minor concern, but one of those things that breaks up workflow and over the course of a long day of reading can start to drive me batty.
There’s an occasional tendency for highlights/underlines to miss characters at the beginning/end of a selection eg:
In this case, missing the opening parethesis is not a big deal, but other times it happens to words where the first character is dropped. Not critical, but mildly irritating. It also occasionally happens that I make a highlight and because of user error, I don’t quite highlight the whole sentence or something.
As such, it would be nice to be able to make adjustments to previous highlights. One possible mechanism would be to allow new highlights to merge with old ones (so in the previous example, if I start a new highlight a bit to the left and overlap the current highlight, they would merge). If this is difficult to implement, perhaps being able to select multiple highlights and have a “merge” option would be possible?
That said, I also really like the fact that I can use multiple annotation styles on the same test (eg highlight a paragraph in yellow and underline a citation within that paragraph in green), so I wouldn’t want any fix to my current annoyance to disrupt that bit of functionality.
