Hi there, 

 

Is there anyone encountering the problems I have?

 

I used to always view pdf on microsoft edge and make notes on them.

However, when the new version of Microsoft edge released, I found it is not so helpful when viewing pdf anymore. I don't have a touch screen or a pen, so I can not type notes directly now and can not use the highlighten function anymore. Also, my previous notes cannot be shown correctly now.

 

I had no idea about how to fix it. Please leave your comments below to help me solve my problem. Many thanks.

Hi@Anran140 

Yes,

Red arrows show things that I added to PDF on Edge legacy but now viewing on Edge Canary 82

as you can see the sticky notes added in Edge legacy are kinda distorted. I did not write it like that, i wrote it properly.

 

more info:

so at the moment I think you need to use Edge legacy and copy your notes to a text or Word file If it looks too distorted on the new Edge
