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 triangle icon appears next to each column heading in the Markups list.
Filtering has the following effects while the filters are in place:
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:
Custom filters allow you to create a filter that includes more than one value in a column. For example, you can create a custom filter that will display markups created by two different Authors. A custom filter applies only to a single column, but each column can have its own custom filter defined and any number of custom filters can be used on different columns at once.
To define a custom filter:
In the following example, a custom filter is being defined to show markups that only Bill G or Frank N have made. Note that the boolean filter string is shown across the bottom of the dialog box. Any number of AND and OR conditions may be created to filter the markups.
To remove a filter from a single column, click the triangle next to the column header and select [All].
To toggle off filtering without losing the filters you've set, click Filter on the Markups list toolbar.
To remove all filters, click Remove Filters in the Markups list toolbar.
