Annotations are not visible when using a third party app


If you send a PDF file with annotations made by PDF Reader to someone, the recipient can not see your edits. 


It could be the reason that he/she was using a third-party app. For example some cloud storage or email apps only embed with simple PDF viewer and might not support all the advanced features supported by PDF Reader. So these apps do not display the edits.

Open the file with PDF Reader 


Suggest the recipient to transfer the file to the advanced PDF editor app (e.g. PDF Reader or Adobe Reader). Then he/she will see all your edits and keep on working with the file. 

  1. On the Windows PC
  2. Go to “File Explorer” and find the document you want to open.
  3. Right click on the PDF and choose “Open With”.
  4. You will see a list of options that support the file format and choose “PDF Reader”.
  5. Then a new copy will be saved to PDF Reader.
