There are many, many ways to extract a page out of a PDF and create a new document from it.
The other day I was speaking at a conference, and an awesome DocumentSnap reader asked me a question. I think I surprised her when I pulled a page out of one of my existing documents and sent it to her right there at the table.
I used an app called PDFpen on my iPad to do this, but I could have done it on my iPhone as well.
Windows Search in newer versions of Microsoft Windows works pretty well, but sometimes it is may not be picking up files that you think it should, or perhaps you want to tell it not to search for some files or types of files.
This video shows you how to control the Indexing Options for Windows Search in Windows 7.
When I want to review and annotate, or mark up, a PDF, I do it almost exclusively on my iPad.
For me, it is a nice all-digital workflow that avoids the print-out-and-write dance. I can then save or share the annotated PDF right from my iPad.
There are many apps that can do this, such as iAnnotate, PDFpen for iPad, and PDF Expert, but the one that I am used to is called GoodReader. GoodReader is the one that is shown in this video, but the general concept is similar.
I assume that this can be done on an Android tablet as well. If you have an app you like for this, please leave a comment and let us know.
Full credit for this one goes to this Evernote forum thread, so thanks to user HerbyDE for asking the question and for users Owyn and jbenson2 for answering it. Check out jbenson2’s post in particular for some ways that you can make the search extremely fine-grained.
