Does the iLiad allow PDF Highlighting?

I'm almost ready to buy my iLiad (even though it isn't ready...)
PDF comments (highlighting, underlining) are crucial for me. Does the viewer support them yet?
Are there any plans to enable highlighting with the stylus?

I attach a sample doc

Thanks

Highlighting

Yes, the iLiad does.

In this particular case: your sample, the highlighting is visible, but difficult to see, because the bright yellow color is translated to a very light grey.

Scribbling on PDF documents works great now. So you can draw on the document. It is not exactly highlighting, but you can draw circles and boxes around text passages en write and draw in the margins. And underline sentences.

Hmm, you can see comments, but you cannot open minimized commentboxes. At least i havent found out how.

I do not see the highlights in my PDF. not even a faint grey behind the text.

I cannot see the comments that are added to changes.

I cannot highlight anything on the iLiad, nor can i add PDF comments, that others can see.

The scribbling is nice, and it will be helpful, when the desktop apllication to merge PDF and scribbles is available from iRex.

So basically i would answer: NO, the iLiad does not allow PDF highlighting.

@Tribble

Tribble,


I used Scotty's viewer: gives a faint grey highlighting with dots.

iRex viewer gives a kind of grey dotted pattern.

(Observe well and close !)

Do you have an example of a PDF file like that, wich you would like to read etc. on your iLiad?

With iRex pdf viewer: Original yellow is too faint. Took a few photos to show the advantage of changing the highlight color to medium grayscale. Upper left is gray highlight. Lower left is green underline. Upper right is gray underline. Lower left portion is freehand underline using scribble.

Note highlights/underline adjusted on PC not iLiad

Hi,
The grey highlight looks good.
The middle-up underline is drawn by iLiad or PC?
The center handwriting-like underline should be drawn by iLiad, right?

@segatang Oops, guess I didn't make it clear that I adjusted the highlighting on PC prior to transfer to the Iliad. Still working on editing on-the-fly using scribble on the iLiad.

Yes, this is stupid. I wanna use this, too. I use pdf comments in my LaTeX files all the time. We just can see the icon of the comment but nothing more. Is this feature on the wishlist?

Ok, I see.
Commenting was a feature of pdf 1.1 or at least 1.2 [pdf-reference.1.6.pdf is at home right now on another CF ;-)], so iRex's pdf viewer should support this.

Poppler needs to understand the iLiad is grey scale and adapt a few things for it, like the highlighter colors...

Now that we have the official iLiad Poppler source we can begin addressing some of these issues.

is poppler supporting the commenting feature? That would be great. Even better, if editing would work aswell. Then i would definately need the keyboard case
