Q: If in Project Properties > Path I will unselect "Always save Citavi annotation...." will this option apply globaly to all my references?

I'm asking this because I want to highlight in Acrobat with different colors then link them in Citavi.

The problem is that a lot of my PDF have already annotation from Citavi, and I want globally removed.

Dear Patrick,

Thank you for your question.

This option will apply to all your new references of the current project.

Highlights will then not be saved in the PDF file, but will only be visible in Citavi.

However, if you have chosen for single PDFs to export PDF annotations, they are saved in the PDF itself and will be also visible in external PDF readers.

To remove all already saved Citavi annotations, please delete them in the PDF document.

Kind regards
