You know the picture on the left? You have a pdf-document with comments? You hover over it with evince and what happens? Nothing! I searched for information about how I can read the comment in the pdf with the default viewer evince.
I found nothing so I thought maybe acroread can do this. This is the Adobe Acrobat Reader for Linux. This worked 🙂
- Get acroread per
sudo apt-get install acroread.
- Open your pdf:
- Hover over the comment.
It’s a pity that evince does not support comments. For me the goal
“to replace the multiple document viewers that exist on the GNOME Desktop with a single simple application“
is not yet achieved. (Printing multiple pages on one A4 sheet does not work too).
