(By the way, CuisinCocaine's linked pdf is not the A4 size of 297 × 420 mm.) I encounter similar problems with my Brother MFC-J6920DW.

After a day long searching I think I found the best solution I could - Master PDF Editor Its trial version does add watermarks, but in contrast with w0ndershare and iskys0ft (I think these companies are the same - very aggressive and unhonest), the watermarks are at the top and bottom of the page and not obscuring the main page. I bought the full version ...

The items you add using Preview.app (text, shape elements, etc.) are annotations (technically correct term), also called "comments". The example you mention to move around using Acrobat are part of the contents of the document. Annotations and contents are two completely different things in a PDF. Acrobat (Standard, Pro) has the tools to access both. ...

Part of it might be a setting in your energy saver settings that allows hard drives to sleep if not in use, you could check on that setting and see if adjusting it makes the job easier and searches quicker. A USB 3 drive (assuming it is on a USB 3 port) should be plenty fast enough to handle the necessary bandwidth. What might be slowing you down is the ...

You have found what I consider to be a bug in the spotlight importer for several types of documents that Preview can use. I tested making an annotation with a slightly nonsensical word that spotlight had zero matches for on my Mac. (at least until this text gets indexed as a safari history item) I tested a PDF and a PNG file with text annotations and none ...
