    How do I disable this feature? I don’t want Liner popping up asking me to highlight PDF files.

    I'm very sorry to tell you that there isn't such a button to disable it.

    We'll consider about adding a disable button!

    This seems like a remarkable, too-good-to-be-true feature for uploading PDFs for free.

    1) Is there a limit (not that I'm trying to push it)

    2) What kind of privacy will PDFs have on my Liner account if I upload them? Would web crawlers / web archiving or google search be able find my public link and download my PDF? An example: an ebook I purchased but want to highlight, but don't want to give away the author's content to everyone.

    3) Do PDFs expire? I really only need it on my Liner account long enough to highlight and export to evernote.

    I'm Brian of LINER team.

    1) 500MB for each PDF file.

    2) 100% private and secure unless you share it with share link.

    3) Doesn't expire.

    If you have any other questions, please feel free to let me know.

    Hi Brian,

    I've purchased a premium account for this functionality, but it's not working. In Chrome nor in the liner PDF reader I get the option to highlight.

    Some days ago I logged a support ticket for this, but I'm still awaiting an answer. I hope a fix will come out because otherwise I've purchased the premium version for nothing.

    this feature isn't working...I just purchased a premium account for the same reasons because I was hoping to use this exact feature and it isn't working...I cannot save the item in Liner, nor can I highlight it. ARGH! this is a time sink!
