Annotation (line e.g.) that resizes accordig to zoom level

Hello,

I have been looking for a while but I could not find anything. Maybe someone is able to point me a direction to look for:

I am looking for an element like an annotation or so which is able to resize (itself) according to the zoom-level. So e.g. I can point to something in the PDF and that element can be seen even in the smallest possible zoom level.

Does someone know if there is such an object in PDF spec? and is it implemented in PDFXCV?

Kind regards
Christoph

Hello Christoph,

You can set up annotations (using JS) in such a way so that they not scale, or you can use e.g. the Sticky Note tool - the sticky note will not scale with the page - and will always be visible, but it's not possible to have an annotation that both scales and 'ensures visibility' at any zoom level at the same time.

Regards,
Stefan
