Q: How can I make a tool stay active so I can use it many times in a row without having to start the tool again and again?
A: You will need to make the tool “Sticky”. In PDF Studio there are 2 ways to make annotation tools sticky.
How to Make an Annotation Tool Sticky
From the Toolbar:
From the toolbar, right click on the tool that you would like to make sticky, and then click on “Sticky” in the drop-down menu.
From the Preferences Dialog:
From the top menu, Go to Edit -> Preferences which will open the Preferences dialog. Click on the Comments tab on the left. Click on the tool that you wish to make sticky. Click on the “Sticky” option.
