Comments Panel

The comments panel displays a list of all comments within the PDF document grouped by page. It provides an easy way to view and navigate comments within the document. The icon next to each comment will be displayed in the same color as the annotation displayed on the page.

Accessing the Comments Panel

View the comments panel by selecting View > Tabs >Comments or by clicking the Comments button in the bottom left corner of PDF Studio. From this panel, you can view, search, and modify all the comments in the document.

Note: The comments button will not be displayed in the bottom left corner of PDF Studio unless there are comments that exist in the document.

The mouse is primarily used to navigate the comments panel. Clicking on any of the annotations listed will navigate the document to where the annotation is located on the page and select the current annotation. The following keyboard shortcuts can be used as well to navigate the comments panel.
