  1. The ability to add longer comments to a specific portion of the PDF, in a way that doesn't block the view of the main text, would make Evernote a crucial part of the workflow for many Academics. While the highlighting tool in PDF annotation is wonderful, I'd like to be able to add anchored comments - longish text annotations anchored at specific points on the PDF using Evernote. So far, it looks like I can add text, but I have two choices: if it's hanging off the edge of the PDF it disappears, and if it's not hanging off the edge it covers the existing text of the PDF, making it worse than useless. The stamp tool only allows for very short little labels. Here's an example of what I mean. I think the addition of this capability would dramatically improve the PDF annotation tool, and help solidify Evernote's place in the world of Academic note-taking.
  2. Is there a way to submit feature requests? Evernote has lots of other features that I haven't found in any dedicated PDF annotation apps so far (Alternatively, do you recommend any PDF annotation apps that sync across multiple devices on multiple platforms, also allow general note-taking, and storage of photos w/ annotations?) (it seems to me like it would be "easier" to add this one feature to Evernote than find a PDF app that has everything I want) (barring of course Evernote's own goals and plans for their product).
  3. I'm shocked that you're shocked that I'm shocked. People use tools in lots of different ways I actually just couldn't find the highlight tool in the PDF annotator when I wrote this. I had found the "draw a line" tool, but of course the line isn't transparent. After I posted this in frustration at the inability to do such a simple annotation thing, I figured out how to highlight, and was actually coming back here to edit my above comment. I don't have an iPad, and need a tool that's cross-platform, and syncs over many devices. For that, Evernote is one of the best I've seen. Everyone always wants more, don't they.

Here's an example of what I mean.
  5. I'm shocked that Evernote doesn't support this better. I won't be renewing my subscription if this doesn't become a feature. As an Academic, PDFs are my bread and butter, so easing interactions with them is absolutely key to a good workflow.
