Hi all - I think some of that functionality is available with Endnote X6. I can see the annotated pdf option there, and using Sync to access pdfs via the web.

In suppose you could also use Google Drive to annotate the pdf and then just link the url of that pdf in Endnote.

Subject: How to organize/store annotated pdfs

We have a researcher that wants to keep her PDFs organized in a way that will allow her to tag the articles so that she can have the same article in multiple folders (for different research projects). Since she may use some of these articles for publication, it was suggested using "research notes" or "term lists" in EndNote.

Furthermore, she would like to annotate the PDFs (maybe using iAnnotate) and have those PDFs linked to her EndNote account so that every time she adds an annotation, it will automatically update in her EndNote library.
This is not possible since the PDF is just an attachment and not linked to any other program. I can't think of a program with all of these features, can you?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
