New PDF Annotator Public Beta πŸ–


#21

Hi Adam,

thanks for the report. It seems the persistent connection the PDF Annotator is using has a bug in it and the annotator failed to load the annotations from our backend. Closing and reopening the PDF should help, but I will investigate the underlying issue further.

Hi, I just started using the annotation beta yesterday, and this is my first post in the forum at all so I hope that I’m doing the correct thing.

I wonder if there is a way currently or planned to filter papers in paperpile by annotation or to export annotations?

Many thanks,

Andrew

So far so good with the new annotator! A minor request - it would be great for URLs in comments to be made automatically clickable (e.g. open in new tab). On a related issue, there seem to be some line-wrap problems in the display of comments - see the screenshot:

Thanks, Mark

Oh and another minor niggle on inserting comments - I would expect that if I highlight some text and click β€œAdd comment” that the default insert position is somewhere close to the highlight (start/end?) rather than at the centre of the view (?).

Thank you for sending that. It should be possible to add links and fix the line wrapping. W.r.t. the highlight that is bug; the intended behavior is that the selected area gets highlighted and a comment panel is opened for it. However, this does not seem to happen whenever opening the comments panel results in the page getting resized. We will get this fixed.

Great, thanks! I should (!) be reading a bunch of papers in the next few days, so will ping back if I have any more questions or comments…
