Well I've never tried flattening a PDF with comments...what does it do to them? Sure I could add some comments and flatten one to find out myself but I'm tired (and lazy).


This is why I wanted to see a sample of the file - the comments I add in Acrobat 10.1.16 are either little yellow sticky notes, or little blue things depending on how you add them - alternatively, I can use Content tool to add a text box but that prints without flattening. 

screen grabs attached.

I guess my question is what does it do to the comments text when it gets flattened? Delete the comments or something else?

These are all technically annotations. It depends on the type of annotation.

Okay, call me crazy, but I took an 8.25 x 5.25 pdf, opened it in Acrobat and turned on display mode, took a screenshot on a 5K monitor and managed to get about 600 dpi at printing size.

Good enough to get some jobs out, especially for digital.

Just saying.

Would I be here if i was not crazy?

Not likely.

Just thinking, if you get a very large 7K monitor you might get her up to 1200 dpi.

Good enough for a greasy trailer park boy, good enough for me.

Do you not see comments in a PDF? For me they stick out and cannot be missed. For some programs for different events I get tons of notes for corrections and changes all through comments. I find it easy and helpful rather then someone trying to explain where and what the change is. And yes you can copy from the comments, just highlight like you would any other text and copy.
View comments can be turned off, so that's what gets us when the rare event that someone uses them happens.


Just curious, why would you turn that function off?

That's nothing, there's lots of greasy things you consider good enough for you.   :rotf:

The more I look at the title of this thread, the more I think about the Police/Sting and "Murder by Numbers," specifically because of the line, "you can turn murder into art."

Yes, desperate times call for desperate actions.

Like the time us Canadians had to burn down the white house.

Think about it.

I think the default setting is off? If not, I do not know as I / we didn't go turning it off on all the workstations.
