In our daily study life, many times we encounter study materials in pdf format. Different from doc, txt and other formats, pdf is not convenient for secondary editing and modification of the content, nor is it convenient for marking and annotating key content. I have found various pdf editing software on the Internet, but the result is that it does not require membership, or the download threshold is high or the operation is difficult. It can really be described as "hard pdf for a long time"!

Until later, I found a pdf artifact, which can not only perform secondary editing on pdf files, but also add remarks to the contents, underline the key contents, etc., which can be said to perfectly solve the problems I mentioned above. . Not only that, it can basically solve most of the problems with pdf!

This artifact is AmindPDF! So today I will mainly talk about its annotation function~

First, we need to download the latest version of PDFelement. After opening the software, you need to log in to use it normally. Here we choose WeChat scan code to log in.

After entering the main function interface of the software, click [Select File], find the file we need to add comments, select it and open it.
Then the second step, after opening the file, find the [Annotation] function in the upper menu bar, click to view some annotation functions it provides us.
