You may attach files to your references, such as a PDF of the full text article. See Adding references. If a reference has a file attachment this will be indicated by an icon in the main window.
Annotating PDF attachments
Double click on any reference with a PDF attachment, and the PDF will open in a new tab. You can then annotate the PDF:
Use the tools at the top of the page to select and highlight text, add a sticky note, change the colour of the highlighter, and navigate around the document.
If you add a sticky note you will also be able to view it in the Notes tab next to the Details tab in the right pane.
To return to your library simply close the tab.
