FlashNotes Software is a web based application that allows users to make textual notes on the Acrobat PDF content, outside of Acrobat. FlashNotes pages are linked to specific pages in the PDF file. FlashNotes pages change as the user browses Acrobat PDF. FlashNotes pages are editable and allow the user to input an unlimited amount of information associated with any page in the Acrobat PDF file. FlashNotes pages are full text searchable. When FlashNotes search results are displayed, the pages of the Acrobat PDF associated with the notes, are displayed on the screen next to the FlashNotes.
