In Acrobat Reader, when highlighting text in a PDF, is it possible to show the actual highlighted text as a list in the 'Comments' sidebar?

Currently, the 'Comments' side bar shows a list, but instead of the actual highlighted text, it just shows the words "Highlighted Text" for every Comment that is created per highlighted text (and the corresponding link to the actual text within the file).

Basically, I'm just wondering whether it's possible to see a list of the actual text that was highlighted instead of just a list of links that brings you to the highlighted text within the PDF.

Hi Skiteam,

No, this isn't possible to show the actual highlighted text in the Comment list. This is a design behavior of the application where it displays only notes added to the particular highlighted text and corresponded link to the actual highlighted text in the file.

We would love to hear your feedback on this, You can share your input by filling this feature request form here: Feature Request/Bug Report Form

Hope this answers your query.
