I am looking for a Safari extension or a built-in tool to highlight or annotate webpages. I want to be able to add notes and shapes that are preserved forever.

I've already tried Liner and Highlight to share, but couldn't find other tools.


I found an extension called Highlighter for Safari, I bought it and refunded it right away, because it access the following permissions: enter image description here

    I'm not sure I'd trust a Safari Extension to save annotations "forever". My advice would be to press File > Export as PDF, then use an annotator that follows the pdf specification like Apple's Preview or PDF Expert to add annotations. – jackgmarch Oct 17 '18 at 18:27
  • the only way to do that is to save the webpage. – Ruskes Oct 17 '18 at 19:13
  • @abc Liner didn't work, when I tap it, it shows an empty box. I tried to restart Safari but no luck. – MEnnabah Oct 17 '18 at 19:32

    Any tool that will annotate a webpage will require the permissions to read all data, so I wouldn't refund it just because of that – abc Oct 17 '18 at 19:40

Use the Print command

then Select Save as PDF

Now you can use Adobe for Highlights and Notes
