hi.. nearly all of my documents are marked with yellow textmarker and comments.. is there a function to delete all the markings at once in a file?

Here's one approach: "View/Other Panes/Comments" or Ctl-M; once the Comments pane is open, click one of the comments, then Ctl-A, then delete. This won't work if you have some locked markings: you'll then have to unselect those locked markings before hitting the delete button.

Thanks Claude for your information - didn't know that.

This unlocking can also be done in one go by opening the properties pane and changing the property "Locked" from "Mixed" to "No" as I just found out.

Hi elastic,

Thanks for the post - you can select each individual comment, or multiple comments via the Comments Pane (View --> Panes --> Other Panes --> Comments Pane) and the Properties Pane can be opened by right clicking any of the comments and selecting Properties.

HTH!

Hello elastic,

Thank you for the email. If comments have been flattened to base content, there is no way to remove them all without also removing all the content of the PDF. For these such comments, you will need to use the Edit Content Tool. You will find more details on this here: http://www.tracker-software.com/knowled ... the-Editor

I hope this helps!
