I suggest you ...

Please make Diigo highlighter compatible with pdf files viewed online

As more and more people move to the cloud to do work, and store their data, it would be incredibly useful if we could highlight pdf documents we read online.

Thank you :)

    Yes it's a awesome tools to work hard. I think with that PDF feature the job turn to simplify and improve the work quality from members in lot of aspects in diigo. Not just webnotes but yes could do everything in one tool. one-stop tool definitively...... You might also want to take a look at poppler.

    okular allows PDF annotations. It's open source. Perhaps diigo could incorporate the code. You might also want to take a look at poppler.

    Awesome feature, I am a Ph.D in life science, with this feature, I can use diigo to manage all my research articles and make cloud-annotation for PDF&PPTs. Thanks a lot.

    YES Yes Yes, please make this possible! This would make my academic life sooo much easier! Im getting a chromebook so all my research and organization has to be done in the chrome browser. I will happily become a premium user once this and mla/apa references/citations are implemented!

    How long do we have to wait??? I would so like to get it down to at most 2 tools instead of my current pile.

    most of my college research is on pdf files read through its own research databases you would make my life a whole lot easier if you make it work on online pdf!

    Chris thanks for the heads up! I'm checking it out now...many teachers are hesitant to use any tool let alone have to use several to get some collaboration going that doesn't have to be face to face all the time!

    I use Diigo for web annotation and Webnotes for PDF annotation. It would be great if Diigo could include PDF support so I could do everything in one tool.

    Yes, the joy of Diigo is the fact that research is being hosted on a remote server...accessible from any online computer. The ability to highlight text on PDF files would greatly increase the effectiveness of Diigo!!
