I am an accountant. Accountants like to have columns of numbers line up. If i have a document that I want to make some notes/comments that include columns of numbers, I have 3 options to do that:
1) Use a text box: start typing some text followed by a number....then I may have multiple lines like this. I want the numbers to all line up on the right hand side. I can then select Right Justify within the text box and mission accomplished. Con: maybe I don't want my comments surrounding by the box.
2) Just use Add text comment: can type the same way as above. Pro: no box surrounding. Con: cannot right justify all of these line so that numbers all line up on the right.
3) Can just Add Text within Edit pdf. Pro: text lines can be right justified. Con: this text now becomes part of the document rather than it being a "markup" which can either be included or excluded from a print.
Frankly, I am surprised that Adobe doesn't have the ability to accomplish what I am proposing. I consider Adobe to be the gold standard of pdf editors, and I have used other pdf editors that have the functionality that I have outlined and am considering making a change to another product solely to achieve this functionality.Byron shared this idea ·
