    At 1:49 your S gets selected, how can I stop that from happening?

    How do you do it without having the box pop up around it?

    I have been using Microsoft Edge to mark up PDF on my surface tablet and pen. It does a better job than Acrobat for sure. I like being able to use the eraser on the surface pen to erase mistakes too. In your opinion, are there better software or something that is better than Edge? Preferably for free.

    I'm using PDF to make notes on academic journals/articles. I download the PDF file and save it. I then open it it which is through Microsoft Edge. I use my pen and the draw tool within the PDF file on Microsoft Edge and when I save the file it doesn't always save what I have written using the draw function, but it does sometimes (more often than not). I'm not sure exactly why it doesn't always save and I'm struggling to find anything on it to explain. I was wondering if you can advise or provide a source to fix this problem? Thank you

    Brilliant! you have really helped me mark up my book manuscript (Media Law for Journalists) which must be published in Sept 2020. I needed to use the very annoying drawing tool (as you say) in order to mark up where the text needs inserts (from the publishers) of charts and graphs. I still don't know how to come out of that drawing tool. I have double clicked it and it creates more and more of those annoying boxes.

    Acrobat's PDF drawing annotation function is THE WORST. Endless problems with my drawing tablet, whereas all other applications work just fine

    Thank you, great help. HP leaves us in the dark or videos are clumsy. What I miss is how to annotate a pdf attached to a mail, annotate and the send back. Any short cuts away from saving and reattaching? Much obliged
