I like using pdf-tools to annotate a pdf file. Is there a way of hand-drawing an arrow (by dragging the mouse) in pdf-tools? It would help a lot in annotating pdf files. Even a template arrow (instead of hand drawn) would be good. As a possible solution I noticed that forward search from latex to pdf-tools does put a temporary arrow in the pdf file. Maybe a similar mechanism can be used to add an annotation arrow?

  • With customize variable pdf-annot-default-annotation-properties you can change the icon of text annotations. There is no arrow within the default list, though. But maybe you can figure out yourself how to add one. – jue Feb 14 at 11:37
