Adding comments in Adobe Reader

Often while indexing and working with Adobe Reader, I highlight text to indicate a typo or an assumption I made for the index. Usually I want to add a comment to the highlighted text and I always had to double click on the highlight to add a comment. But there is a setting to make a comment box pop up automatically: Click on Edit/Preferences/Commenting and tick ‘Automatically open comment pop-ups for comments other than notes’. A timesaver for sure.

Adobe Reader

I discovered a very simple but useful setting on Adobe Reader. Go to Edit/Preferences/Documents and tick ‘Restore last view settings when reopening documents’. Now, when I reopen a document it takes me to the last place I’ve been and displayed in the same size. Brilliant.
