Adding notes and highlights from a separate Skim notes file

You can have notes contained in a separate file with extension "skim", for backup or when the notes were send by email with the PDF file.

You can add the notes to the companion PDF file.

To add notes from a separate .skim notes file to a PDF file:

  1. Open the PDF file.
  2. Choose File > Read Notes..., and choose the .skim file that holds the notes.

It is important that the notes file is associated to the PDF file. If the file name for the .pdf file and the .skim file are the same apart from the extension, Skim will automatically offer to add the notes from the notes file when you open the PDF file.
