Highlighter 2.x

ABU 18-apr-2024 - Updated to version 2.0.2 (BUGFIX for Linux/MacOS only - case sensitive filenames of included images/icons)

Highlighter 2 is a fully redesigned evolution of Highlighter, a full app for reading and adding annotations to PDF documents.

With Highlighter 2 you can browse and annotate multiple documents at once. Documents are organized in a znotebook and they can be detached as independent windows so that you can look at, compare, and annotate two documents at the same time.

Here is a preview


Highlighter requires the new tclMuPdf-2.x package. Choose the one for your platform and install the package as a subdirectory of one of the directories given by the auto_path variable (e.g. c:\tcl\lib)

  • [L1 ] tclMuPDF 2.4 for Windows x64
  • [L2 ] tclMuPDF 2.4 for Linux x64
  • [L3 ] tclMuPDF 2.4 for MacOS
  • [L4 ] tclMuPDF 2.4 multiplatform /Windows+Linux+MacOS

Then download the Highligther app. Unzip it and install it under any directory.
