Highlights on Annotated PDF shift up and left - making it useless

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, it's my first time using evernote and I'm using it on Windows 10 desktop (not the web client) and I am reading a book and making highlights as an annotation. Once I save the annotation, whether on the same PDF or as a copy of the PDF the end result is that my highlights are moving left and up. If it were just moving left it would be fine, but it moves up too making it very difficult for me to figure out what I have actually highlighted. 

If you look at the attached image, the first highlight needs to be on "direct numerical simulation" but it moves way up and to the left. I couldn't find any other references to this problem and it makes me think that I am doing something wrong. Any help would be appreciated. Live chat is offline right now and I really want to get started with this book ASAP.

I'm also having the same issue.

It does this if I have annotated the PDF Windows or Android tablet... and it's happened a lot over the years.

I've generally ignored it, but I'm about to have to work with a large amount of PDFs. 

I attached a picture cause it is pretty bad... not even kind of close to what I highlighted.

I turned off the "include annotation summary," and it seems to have helps right now.

It doesn't happen all the time for me so I can't confirm that this is a fix, or if it just hasn't happened again yet.
