Techniques: PDF Annotation?
I know there are a bunch of folks here who do more academic work than I, who have probably developed workflows around making annotations in PDF files. I'd like to know what y'all are doing in this space.
- Notes must be in the Zettel, and thus in markdown.
- I'd like to have references to pages
- I'd really like to have something like "highlight some text and write a note referring to it", and this is the big challenge I see. How do I mark where in a pdf I'm referencing while using plain text stored outside the pdf?
My current method:
I just quote the line I want, write my comments, and put a
[@bibtex] reference. Mostly it's one note per book, but if something inspires a break out note that's a thing I do too. Also I barely understand bibtex, so seeing how other people use it might be helpful.
[EDIT: After writing this I scrolled down and saw this forum post, which addresses some of the questions I have. But I'm still interested in talking about general techniques here.]
