Annotate PDFs within Mendeley
You can digitally annotate PDFs saved in your Mendeley account, highlight passages or make notes about the material.
To do this, open a PDF within your Mendeley account and use the Highlight or Note icon.
You can share your annotations with your co-workers:
Your annotations are not stored in the actual PDF file, but rather in your Mendeley account. To create a new PDF file that contains all annotations, you can export the PDF with all its annotations by choosing: File > Export with Annotations from within the Mendeley PDF viewer.
