Commenting, Annotating, and Highlighting Web Pages or PDF Documents

Some of the resources on and have specific discussion pages already set up at Looks especially for special links to datamethods topics when you see a clickable blue bubble in the right margin of the screen.

If you don’t use datamethods, use annotation and highlighting capabilities of hypothesis. hypothesis allows you to post both public (visible to all users connected to hypothesis) and private (visible only to you) comments/highlights. Here are some steps to get you started.

For MacOS with Safari

I could get the Hypothesis Bookmarklet, when used from the bookmarks bar to show existing annotations. It did not show the sidebar on the right of the browser window unless I prefixed the URL with I installed this shortcut to the share symbol at top right of Safari window. This shortcut is a conversion of the official bookmarklet. When running the shortcut I got a message that scripting actions must be enabled, leading me to an Open Preferences box. This opened a box with headings of General Sidebar Advanced with Advanced highlighted. I clicked to Allow Running Scripts. But I got an invalid javascript error. Removed the permission. Tried the other shortcut here but got a URL error. It didn’t seem to need script running permission though. This link worked when opening a section of a chapter. May be easiest just to manually put in front of URL.
