I opened a pdf with annotations (created in evince) with Zathura, and I see the little yellow sign for notes at the right place, but how to open them?

It seems that there is a commit about it, but in the man page I can't find a shortcut or command.

Is it possible?

  • The commit you mentioned is about zathura-pdf-mupdf which is a rendering engine you can use in combination with zathura. There is zathura-pdf-poppler as well which can be used for pdf rendering. Both of them have support for pdf annotations but zathura doesn't.

  • So does that mean zathura doesn't have a shortcut to open them? Or should I look into the Girara library, which is for the interface? Commented Aug 28, 2018 at 8:02

    Correct, zathura doesn't support annotations at all and there is no way to open them.

No, it is not posible

You can't read anotations as zathura doesn't support anotations at all, so there is no way to open them.
