Highlight with a straight line

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

When I annotate a pdf document I'd Like to highlight somme sentences whit a straight line (not a freehand quite straight) 

It's possible on the Android app? 

Thanks

Why people are still requesting for a basic "highlight with a straight line"? Why has Evernote not done that yet? I highlight information on PDFs, and most of the time the highlight tool will correct the line to a straight one, but sometimes my lines are not straight enough, and Evernote doesn't correct the line. I have to Ctrl+Z and try again. That's just ridiculous.

I'm still a Premium user but you are losing me because Evernote is famous and expensive, but doesn't do some basic stuff. My subscription expires in the second semester, but I stopped using Evernote already, which means that I paid for something that I am not using. I wish I had not paid for a Premium subscription.

Hi @tiagozt, I completely understand your situation. As a workaround, I think you should try Xodo docs (if you're using highlighting in Android). Xodo is more suitable for this purpose and every change you do in the file will be prompt to save by EN. 

About this especific feature (Highlighting pdf files), I like to use Xodo because the app summarizes the highlights, allowing me to do a quick review of the content I deemed relevant. 

Hope that helps!

Would love to be able to straight highlight, like all my iPad friends can with PDF expert.  Evernote please get on this!

Edit:  just read in a different thread that if you hold down the shift key while highlighting it will make a straight highlight line, and it worked for me in my Windows desktop Evernote.  Doesn't solve the problem for how to do so while on my phone but still makes me happy I can do this on my laptop.
