Better PDF interaction

  • Scrolling instead of the slow and glitchy arrow clicking
  • Highlight/Notes
  • Link to place in pdf (like page # or highlight)
  • Be able to tag or attach markdown files to pdfs

If Obsidian just added the FIRST, it would be my #1 go-to app for all my work. Currently I’m using DevonThink (pdfs files & markdown) but it is simply too big and clunky for what I need.


I agree, It would be quite interesting to have scrolling to browse PDFs is much more practical than clicking.
A very good feature is also to add the ability to highlight PDFs, if there were these two features I would not need to use an external PDF reader.

please provide scrollable feature in in built pdf reader in obsidian.
simple pdf editor would also be much welcomed

One will happen in 0.10.8.
For the other 3 points there are already feature requests or you can open specific ones. FRs should be atomic.
