Highlighting, Annotating

If you right-click on a PDF and select View PDF, the PDF will be opened in the PDF viewer of your computer. You can highlight sentences, annotate the document, click on save and close the document, and your annotations will be saved.


Zotfile is a Zotero plugin to manage your PDF attachments: automatically rename, move, and attach PDFs (or other files) to Zotero items, sync PDFs from your Zotero library to your (mobile) PDF reader (Ipad, Android tablet...). After highlighting and annotating PDFs on your tablet, Zotfile can automatically extract the highlighted text and the annotations and save them in a Zotero note.
