I have a PDF that has over a thousand pages worth of highlighted text. When I open up the comments section, I can see all of the highlighted comments but I cannot select all the comments at once - I can only select the highlighted comments page by page. I am currently running reader DC and I recall in earlier versions being able to select all the comments and deleting them all at once. Can I still do that in reader DC or do I have to go page by page selecting all the comments and deleting them? Any help would be greatly appreciated - thanks in advance!
Hi arg42330689 ,
You can go to Comment>in the right pane>hold Ctrl key and select all the pages on which highlighted text is>right click>Delete.
Let us know if you face any issue.
do you know how I can delete all the highlghted text? I want to delete the text that are highlighted, not just the highlight
Try pressing Ctrl+A while inside the Comments List. If that doesn't work click the first comment and then scroll down to the bottom of the list, hold down Shift and click the last one. That should select all of the comments in between and you'll be able to delete them all at once.
Here is an option, print the marked up document as a pdf, in the print dialog box at the bottem, you have the option of selecting it with or without the markups and/or stamps. If you pick the 'document' option it will print it as a pdf without any of your markups. I save it with a name that denotes it as NOT having any markups.
