I'm studying a Master of Public Governance in Denmark. A large deal of reading pensum is provided as photocopies of book chapters.
There is no text identification imbedded in Papers and therefore the annotation tools are not available when reading non-generic pdf files, ie. photocopies or other scanned material. If I want to make underlinings the only available option is the freehand marker tool. It looks like this:
Not pretty, I have stopped underlining and add markings in the margin instead. These freehand markings are, because of the lack of text recognition, not showed in notes. I have to scroll through the entire dokument each time I have to identify an annotation.
Suggestion for solutions:
Text recognition in non-generic pdfs. Newest mac ios Monterey provides the ability to mark text in any picture, any format, and a internet based search is made on the text identified. The tech is there.
Second best: Please provide a "line tool" for annotations. My freehand underlining is terrible, and embarrassing considering me being a vascular surgeon.
