Filters provide an efficient mechanism for working with markups on a PDF, which can become numerous in a production environment, causing the PDF to appear cluttered, especially when markups overlap. Filters provide a way of organizing, identifying, and integrating input from many people.
To filter by data in a column:
On the Markups list toolbar, click Filter. A filter icon appears next to each column heading in the Markups list.
- Click the filter icon associated with the desired column and select the value to filter by.
- Repeat as desired to filter by other values.
Filtering has the following effects while the filters are in place:
- The Markups list shows only those markups that match the selected filters.
- The column headers of columns that are currently being used as filters are highlighted in orange.
Markups on the PDF that do not match the selected filters are dimmed (as demonstrated below).
It is also possible to filter by search term. This feature is especially helpful when the column you are filtering has a large number of entries.
To filter by search term:
- On the Markups list toolbar, click inside the Search field.
- Enter the desired search term. The Markups list will be filtered down to only those markups that have the search term in at least one of the columns. Further, any markups that are filtered out will be dimmed on the PDF.
To remove a filter from a single column, click the
To toggle off filtering without losing the filters you've set, click Filter on the Markups list toolbar.
To remove all filters, select Clear All from the Filter menu on the Markups list toolbar.
