The Repeat Notes Mode button allows you to continuously add a selected note without having to select the note each time you want to use it from the Notes list.
Only documents that allow notes to be placed on them can utilize this function. Any document that is rendered as an image is able to use Repeat Notes Mode.
Notes and annotations placed on text documents snap to the nearest character when moved or resized. Due to this functionality, notes and annotations may slightly shift after creation to snap to the nearest row and column position.
When exporting a document to a PDF (such as with File | Save As): If the original file type was PDF, any Notes and Annotations will be exported as Comments on the resulting PDF. If the original file type was not PDF, any Notes and Annotations will be burned directly onto the resulting PDF.
