Area/Image Based Highlights (PDF Only)

You can now make area or image based highlights when reading your PDFs. Gone are the days when you are restricted to selecting just text!

You can make area/image based highlights by right clicking anywhere in the PDF reader and resizing the window to the area you would like to highlight. This feature will be particularly useful to knowledge workers, researchers, students and anyone reading PDFs that contain not only text.

Tags can now be added to individual highlights. This allows you to read and organize various tidbits in the way that is best for you. Tags can then be leveraged to group related highlights made across several different books about the same topic and more.
