Pdf edit

I will make notes on a pdf import, but all text and markings is not saved, so the next time I go to the document, it is not there.
I might have missed something.

    I don't think Onshape is a PDF editor.

    It is possible to do some edits, add text, lines and color markings on pdf files. It is done with tools in Firefox or Edge,  It get lost when you close the document.
    Export and reload and your comments is there

    If you can replace files - such as PDFs - in an Onshape document. So you could edit a PDF using some other tool and then replace a PDF which is in the Onshape document.

    Firefox and Edge has it I think chrome also.
