There seems to be an issue with PDF highlighting where, if a user attempts to highlight a passage on a line that already contains highlighting, the previous highlight annotation will be deleted.
- Open a PDF
- highlight a portion of a line.
- Highlight another portion of the same line, not contiguous with a previous highlight
Result: Previous highlight annotation is deleted.
Expected: New highlight should not delete previous highlights.
This is an issue in instances where, while highlighting, there are to distinct ideas that might need to be captured but there are words to be omitted. This could either be as a means to separate two distinct ideas that happen to share a line in the text, or if there are superfluous words within a thought that a user doesn’t want included in the highlight.
Has anyone else observed this issue? Is there a workaround? Is this an issue that DEVON staff are aware of?
