To annotate PDFs in zotero, I am using a software (freeware), PDF X-Change Viewer, wich allow PDF-annotation. But it is not free/open-source. I can't use Pliny, because it's not zotero compliant. I'm using Windows XP and Ubuntu.
Is there a free (open) sofware to annotate PDFs, that can be used with zotero?(6 posts) (3 voices)
You might try xournal
It is open-source (free) software and runs under ubuntu
apt-get install xournal
it will be under your accessories menu
Thanks. That's for Linux.
Any idea for XP?
OK, sorry I skipped over the Windows part of your question. Here's an application that actually runs on Windows, Mac and Ubuntu (written in Java).
from the jarnal site:
Jarnal is an open-source application for notetaking, sketching, keeping a journal, making a presentation, annotating a document -
including pdf - or collaborating using a stylus, mouse or keyboard. It is similar to Microsoft Windows Journal and to the earlier Mimeo whiteboarding and Palm notepad applications. There is also a commercial knockoff of Jarnal called PDF Annotator - for $50 you can enjoy a subset of the capabilities that Jarnal provides for free.
Love that last sentence...
Thanks for your hint.
Seems quite complicated to use it with zotero, though it's a very practical software. I suppose that my quest for a better (and open) PDF-annotation software working with zotero will not end soon.
You might want to give a go to Mendeley desktop http://www.mendeley.com/download-mendeley-desktop/.
It features integration with Zotero as well.Posted 5 years ago Permalink
