Hi all,

I have been using the 'Comment' function of the Adobe Reader app (downloaded this month) on my iPad (bought this month) to highlight sections of documents. However, when I save the PDF to my Google Drive, the highlights don't show on the document. If I use the underline, comment bubble, or free-write functions, any markings made with these DO show up, so I'm not sure why the highlights aren't making it to the Google Drive version of my document. Can anybody help?

Thanks,
Jennie

P.S. My current way of saving the document is:  Share a Copy > Create PDF > Done > Save File To... > Drive.

This sounds more like an issue with the way Google Drive displays PDF files, which has nothing to do with Adobe. Report this issue to Google.

Thank you. I just downloaded the document from Google Drive to my laptop and you're right - once it's downloaded and opened independently of Google Drive the highlights are there. Can't believe I didn't think of that! Thanks again.
