    Hey

    Does anyone know a good Win 8.1 PDF annotation app which works really well with the Surface Pro 3 pen?

    -The built in PDF reader is ok, but you have no highlight options etc.
    - Adobe Reader is ok, but doesn't work with the Pen?

    Thanks
    Mark

    Drawboard PDF is probably the best. Costs a few quid in the Windows store.

    You really gave up PDF Annotator for Drawboard - Drawboard seems laggy and tough to adjust pen thickness and file saving.

    I did, I haven't seen any lag, and when I annotate PDFs I use a medium pen and I always save it as a new file then from there I just save that file.

    PDF Annotator was getting very frustrating and really drained my battery...

    I agree about the battery drain - probably a case of overkill for what I need. I may go back to Drawboard and give it another try.

    You should have great battery life since your WiFi doesn't work ;)
