    Default Can you highlight text in .pdf file?

    Hi all,
    I want to get the note 3 mainly for reading ebooks in pdf format.

    Can you hightlight the text or paragraph in .pdf format?

    If yes, how?

    I went to an att store and played with it but couldn't figure out how to highlight the text. I asked the rep and no one knows.

    Have you tried Adobe Reader?

    To highlight or annotate pdf files I would suspect it would be the same as its done on the Note 2?

    1. Download pdf file. It's usually stored in the download folder.

    2. Open S-Note and click the menu button.

    3. Select import option, and then select pdf

    4. Find the file you're looking for, select it, and then press Done.

    5. The file will show up in S-Note where you can then highlightor annotate your pdf.

    This is how it's done on the Note 2. Try it on the 3, and let us know. I'll have mine tomorrow so I'll test it out as well.

    For larger PDF files you can also use EZPDF or iAnnotate

    I'm using Adobe reader, works pretty good. My friends with Samsung are using Foxit and Yiigo PDF reader, seems to be working pretty good.
