User is adding markups to a PDF document. Some are going in as document elements and others as markup elements. Don't understand why/how? Issue is when she goes to print. The default is document element items, so unless someone chooses the dropdown to include markup elements they will not print.

What is the issue?  The default is to view the document with the notes created in acrobat and print without notes unless you choose to.

Yes. But I'm really trying to understand why some elements are getting added as document elements that are not editable and others as Markup elements that are, when the user is saying she is adding them the same way.

I assume this is for adobe acrobat.  Which elements are getting added as markup elements and which are not?

Yes. They are adding a standard text annotation and some came in a document element. Cannot edit and others come in as editable.

In acrobat, I was able to add edits, save and open and edit the notes. When I go to print, it defaults to printing with all the mark up I did and I have to select the drop down in printing preferences not to print with the mark up.  I don't use this feature  a lot and perhaps it is based on if you are the creator?  Open it up and see what happens.

All of yours were editable. What could they be doing?!?

My guess would be they use Typewriter for the text comments and markup tools when they need more than just text, that would certainly explain what you are seeing.

The downside is that you will not get markup tools that will automatically print unless selected, however I think it it will keep the last selected option as a default next time you open Acrobat.
