highlighting did not sync but articles and comments did?
I have just recently downloaded zotero to my work computer - my articles showed up in their folders but all the highlighting I did at home is gone! I can still see comment bubbles that I entered but no highlighting...please help!
There is something else going on and it's likely unrelated to Zotero sync. More likely has something to do with your pdfXchange settings.
- Zotero does not now support highlighting?
-And if I wanted to offer this functionality to members of a Zotero Group, each group member would have to install a separate highlighting application on their computer?
Sorry again if this has already been answered above - I'm a newbie to this and it's all still slightly mind-boggling!
For PDFs, Zotero doesn't have a PDF reader at all, so it doesn't interact with PDFs other than to pass them on to the viewer you have specified in Firefox or your operating system. Fortunately, PDF annotations are relatively standardized, though, so different users can rely on different PDF for annotating (e.g. Foxit, pdfXchange, Adobe Acrobat, Okular, Mac Preview) and still see each other's annotations.
As I really need this feature I wonder if it would help to go back to an older version of Zotero (I even don't care if I can not still read newer entries in Zotero). Is this possible and if so, which Zotero version should/can I take?
