I just got an heavily commented pdf, when I open it in Preview, all annotations (highlights, notes) are "hidden", i.e. do not show up in the left margin. I can display them by clicking on them but I would like to see them all at once without having to click on each of them individually. I couldn't find a menu item but maybe I missed it? Or is there a keyboard shortcut?
This is a workaround, as I couldn't find a hotkey or menu option to do this. Still, clicking
View > Hide Notes
View > Show Notes
Will show all anotations. I can now see all the annotations without manually clicking them. This worked on Preview 5.5.1.
Click View or View Menu icon in the upper left, then Highlight and Notes.
There is a direct shortcut for it now. Cmd + alt + 4
- See table of contents: Cmd + alt + 3
- See thumbnails: Cmd + alt + 2
For Preview 8.1, I was also concerned that all my Notes were minimized (their term, not "hidden"). Solution is to change the default (new since 10.7 I think):
View > Highlights and Notes
Once this is toggled, the Notes again show in margins.
