Hi, very smiliar to yet slightly from the bug report no: 2006627 --and much more recent: Skim 1.3.21
I found out that highlights in some of the older pdf's have shifted a little off the main text. The content of the highlight remained intact, no problem there...
What might be the source of the problem?
(The pdf was not a jstor file)
Thank you very much!
(Attached is a screenshot. The problem is on the middle of the page (older highlight). The bottom part (new highlight) works correctly.

    Can't say, and have no idea. If it is the problem from 2006627 it can't be fixed retroactively, the saved highlights are just off. But from your information I cannot say whether that is the case. Otherwise all that can happen is that you changed the underlying PDF data.
