There are multiple ways of selecting annotations when using Drawboard PDF.
- This is your default tool that is used to move around a file and move annotations around.
- Lasso Select
- This selects annotations that were partly selected.
- Square Select
- This selects annotations that were fully selected.
- Text Select
- This selects only PDF text content
You can also copy and paste text or images from your clipboard into PDFs as annotations too via Ctrl + C to copy and Ctrl + V to paste.
Note: You can only select annotations you have created. Flattened annotations cannot be selected in Drawboard PDF and only PDF text can be selected and not other PDF content as the PDF details are already 'baked' onto the document, it is part of how the PDF format works.
