Saving PDF files with the notes and highlights included

Normally, Notes and highlights you add to a PDF document are not saved in the PDF data, but are added to the file as extended attributes. However, Skim allows you to save a copy of your PDF file that does contain the notes in the PDF data. This allows you to see the notes also in other PDF viewers.

To save a copy of the PDF with notes included:

  1. Choose File > Export....
  2. Select "PDF" from the File Format popup, select the "With Embedded Notes" option, choose a location to save the PDF to, and press OK.
