When annotating a pdf in pdfview with the pdf-tools capabilities, I noticed that the symbols I can use are the same symbols evince uses. Can I use different custom symbols on i.e. text notes and if so how?
Steps I have undertaken to answer the question myself:
- I found the function evoked to place annotations
(pdf-annot-add-text-annotation POS &optional ICON PROPERTY-ALIST)
- I found that in that function the function
pdf-annot-add-annotationis evoked. I assume this is the function that places the symbol
- I found that there is a list of strings
pdf-annot-standard-text-iconswhich lists the names of the symbols like
What I wasn't able to find was where the actual symbols are taken from. If replacing is not quite so easy, is there a way to scale the symbols placed smaller?
