How to hide annotation/note icon while reading?

Check the attached image, how can I read with so many icons which will cover the text?
On both Windows and iOS client...
How can I hide them so that I can read?
  • It might be possible to hide these in a future version, but just don't put note annotations directly over your text — put them in the margins.

    For comments about individual lines, use highlight annotations, which have a much smaller icon.
  • I just opened a PDF file which have comments already in it, it's not created by myself…
    Anyway, hope the team can have it fixed as soon as possible.
  • I mean, you'd get similar icons at those positions in most PDF readers. What do you see if you open it in another program?
    On the other side is Adobe PDF Reader, the size of annotation icon is fixed, so it won't resize icons while zooming.

    What PDF reader created these annotations originally? It seems like you're getting both highlight-comment icons and note-annotation icons.
  • Adobe PDF reader, we do have annotations and comments (for replying the annotations) in this single PDF file.
  • If you don't mind, can you email the PDF in question to with a link to this thread?
  • I'm sorry I can not, cause it related publisher's copyright of unpublish book, but I can test a little bit, if I can reproduce this for other PDF files, I will send, thanks!
