    Hi all, I keep seeing references on Diigo to the ability to upload a pdf but I cannot find how to do it. Can anyone help? Thank you!

    Unfortunately, Diigo doesn't have that feature yet. In my mind, that is the only thing that Diigo is lacking. I know that they're working on it! You can bookmark the location of the PDF url in Diigo, and then you can make comments on the whole page. If you want to mark up your document, you can upload it to http://embedit.in as a public embed. The software on that site allows you to mark up your document with a red pen (no highlighting, sticky notes, typing, or shapes, though!). Then you can add that bookmark to your Diigo library. It's a very imperfect workaround, but it can get the job done for little things.

    Beware: for the past few months, comments are missing from annotated links etc.. In other words, don't expect other people to see your comments.

    If the PDF is public, then I'd aim to use Diigo with the HTML version produced by Google.

    You can upload a pdf-file to Diigo: simply by taking a snapshot

    has the pdf to diigo problem been solved? If I took a screenshot, then I could save it in Diigo but would I have access to the entire PDF?

    I like to use google Chrome.

    Is the screenshot method, the only way to upload a pdf?

    We are working on this feature. We will support uploading and making annotations on PDF.
