Textmarker vs. PDF search-highlighting
Either use Textmarker or the search-highlighting functionality in FF's built-in PDF-viewer. They are not compatible. The latter works very different from search-highlighting on webpages and will mess up text marks that are in the same container as search results.
Bug reports and suggestions via e-mail, please! (Firefox and user wishes are constantly changing - E-mail instead of grouse comments increases chance of Textmarker changes and fixes with next release;)
- new (much faster) algorithm for restoring saved highlights on revisit (can be still a bit buggy; please help by reporting bugs via email)
- user can decide via settings if Textmarker's shortcut should overwrite others or not
- add custom markers (any number or letter key) - up to 7 additional markers (total = 10)
- support for firefox' reader view
- some other new features, changes and fixes
(v.2.0.0, 2.0.1 and 2.0.2 have not been published)
