For me, Preview has the power I’ve ever wanted for markup & comments. Not sure if it directly edits pdfs; T’re not supposed to be edited, I was taught years ago. If I want the info from a pdf, I’ll select, copy & paste in the editor I prefer at that time, any will do. That’s not perfect, of course, but I can be resourceful. Creating a PDF on any Mac with a version of OS X is dead simple. Choose Print, then select “to pdf” in the dialog box. I used to send pdfs to our out-of-state printer who had a Windoze shop. Never a problem to him, though the editor previous to me used SOME windoze applet which sometimes was adequate, sometimes not, and often a PITA to one or the other Windoze machines.
So I now send all my PDFs to the “Print” icon on my desktop, where I can then select ‛PDF“ in the editor's menu. And there is PDF (HTML) to edit, plus the option of uploading with a web browser using the browser of the computer/device you are editing on. All of this is so much easier and quicker than past practices. So simple. And now I can do so much with them, I don’t know what to do with myself. I want to do more. If you are doing what you want to do, why do you need a PDF or XPS? Is only those files an advantage or is there value to PDFs and XPS, too? You can now do more with these files and make more of a contribution in the end! Why does it even matter that you have the file in PDF or.
