Fast, easy, effective app for pdf annotation. Well designed by having the edits saved in an XML gzipped file (the .xoj project) which can be easily updated also "by hand". A few rough corners (like cursor alignment with actual edit position) but this is why it's only version 0.x :) Thanks and keep up the great work!
Best note-taking and pdf annotating app I have ever used! The app is super lightweight and it works wonders on my old little x61; I have used Xournal for a few years already and I wouldn't be able to find any flaws in it: it has a lot of powerful features and doesn't waste resources with needless eyecandies. I have primarily been using it for taking notes during lectures and to fill forms and sign pdf files but the Xinput function makes it a good tool for basic sketching too. Last but not least is its cross compatibility with linux and windows. Seriously, I couldn't ask for anything better, thank you Xournal team!
I work with Xournal very often, mostly annotating existing PDFs. It is doing a great job. Nevertheless, I miss a search option so much. Bit it is stable, consumes less memory and less space for the annotations also. I would like to see more progress up to version 1.0. Thank you for sharing this toll. Kind regards Detlef
Great for taking notes in class! I used it my entire senior year of highschool with no fuss! Whenever I had to turn in homework, I just converted it to PDF (so I could interface with their Microsoft network). Though not as feature-packed as Microsoft's Onenote, it is a more than adequate replacement.
