Hi,

 

I'm currently using PDF Embed API.

 

I'd like to ask if there is a way to add annotations such as highlight, without confirming in the comment area every time, unless the user double clicks the highlighted annotation. 

 

Currently, every time user adds an annotation, the comment panel will switch on and user has to choose cancel or post. 

This can be quite tedious especially user need to use full screen to view the pdf, as after posting the annotation, user often has to manually close the comment panel.

until next time it pops up again...

 

 

Thanks.

Currently, the only way to do this is to is set showCommentsPanel to false and then build your own comments pane that you can toggle the visibility of as needed. By hiding the native comment panel, users no longer need to confirm a comment. The comment automatically posts after a second or two. This method also lets you add additional "verbs" to your custom panel.

Hi,

 

Thanks for the reply.

 

But recently I've encountered another issue. When I've added many annotations with the comment panel on, 

 

I noticed that the browser or the pdf viewer is getting slower and slower, when I wish to select the text and add a highlight to it. 

 

I'm not expert on this but I check the chrome performance tab, which says that the mouse up event (which probbaly fired up when I'm done with the text selection) takes over 3 seconds to respond. 

 

This issue resolves when I refresh the website. 

 

May I ask what might be causing this issue and how can i address it? 

 

Thanks again,

That sounds like a bug in memory management or something.
