Code snippet


What do you mean “left still for a week”? Does this mean you’re leaving your chrome tab open for a week and then coming back and trying to edit the annot?

Note that annotations that exist inside the document when you load it will always be read-only, as PDF.js Express does not support extracting these annotations.

If you need to extract the existing annotations, you can use our Extract API Endpoint


Hi logan,
thanks for reply right now looking at suggestion you have made & Left still for week means drawing annotation today and opening that tool after 1 week no changes has done between that whole week please tell me if there is any other possible cause for occurrence of this issue
