Highlight colors (produced on ios via a highlighting app) do not display correctly when viewed in the native desktop Obsidian PDF viewer.
See attached image which shows the same document side by side in 2 viewers. Obsidian native PDF viewer in on the left. The right image is viewed in MacOS preview which is has correct colors. (Zotero native PDF viewer also correct)
iOS Obsidian renders the correct PDF colors. This issue is desktop specific.
On the first page most colors were highlighted using a MACOS app - no issues. towards the end of the first page and on the second page, colors were highlighted on iOS and the differences become very clear
- highlight a PDF on iOS (warm colours like orange and red seem to bug the most I used “highlights” app)
- dump the pdf into obsidian
- sync to desktop
- open the pdf in Obsidian desktop
Colors display correctly per other PDF apps and as per obsidian iOS PDF viewer
orange becomes green
green becomes purple
purple becomes brown…
This is on Mac OS BigSur
