I am still not clear, after reading several related threads, whether I can link to a pdf and open it in the snapshot view so that I can highlight and sticky-note the sucker. I am using an Intel Mac, Firefox, Zotero, 'preview' as my pdf reader. Also, I have been unable to get Firefox/Zotero to open a pdf in the Firefox browser.

BTW The pdf I would like to use most is 71 pages long, so I would settle for a way to cut and paste, then highlight and notate those clippings in zotero. I've found two ways to add highlighting and notes to pdfs in Zotero. The first was a workaround, which was to drag the pdf to an external folder, open it, make changes, save it, and drag it back into the entry in Zotero, and delete the original. But by chance I found another, much better, way. To the left of the sync button is the 'Locate' drop down list.
Select 'Open in external viewer', make changes, save, and close (no need to Save-As.). Changes are then saved in Zotero, and visible when just double-clicking on the pdf, or when opening in an external viewer again. I use Foxit Reader, but I expect that the same would apply to Adobe Reader too.
