...to be able to add little re-writes, right on the existing text, not by highlighting and then adding a note off to the side. Like, to move a word, I want to circle it and add an arrow to the new place it should go, or strike out a short phrase and add the correction right on top, in the triple-spaced area I created when I formated the text and saved it to a new pdf. I'd prefer if it's all done with built-in shapes and typing, rather than hand-writing/drawing, like an iPad notetaker. Willing to spend very little, but that really depends mostly on features and slickness. TIA!
