For correcting my dissertation, I have many comments in the form of annotations / comments. I want to select multiple and remove them. How is this possible? See below for an example. "Define good fit" are all seperate shapes somehow, I want to delete them all in one go, but when I try to select them, a blue box appears and non are actually selected.
The blue box is actually indicating the "ood" is selected.
Because those were written with a pen, Acrobat views them as multiple annotations. So you'd have to delete them all individually. Or you could select the first, then shift + click on each remaining one, so you have them all selected and then delete them all at once.
My problem is that this is taking very long. For example, here
these are more than 30 annotations. How can I remove them efficiently?
Use the Object Selection tool, and click and drag a rectangle around these comments. It will select all the ones within that rectangle. Then click Delete.
What is the Object Selection tool? If you refer to the blue mouse button, this button will not select any comments / annotations when dragging a rectangle.
No, it's a black cursor.
Is this the one?
If I drag a box when I have selected this tool, it does not select annotations or comments?
Can you just go back to a backup taken before the corrections?
Or just re-edit the original (presumably a Word document)?
