Visually mark a quoted sentence from any text using Mac OS X PDF capacities

Sometimes, when doing a report on a given subject, you need to quote an official text. This has to be done textually in many cases, but if you plan to make a nice graphical presentation for your paper or else if you decided to make a short documentary using iMovie, you’ll probably want to quote the source more visually, highlighting the sentence your reader should read. It helps focusing on a part of the text, while preserving the exact look of the original document, thus allowing to put the quotation in perspective from the rest of the document. The result should then look like this :

Visual quote example

Continue reading to learn how to use Panther’s PDF capacities to do this.

First, you need to decide what part of your document you’ll show on the context of your quotation, the part that will appear greyed out around your quotation. Then try to fit this part on screen, scrolling and resizing the window as necessary. Next select you quoted sentence with the mouse cursor. To make this selection yellow (or gold) select this color as your Highlight color in Appearance section from System Preferences.

You’ll then make a PDF copy of the part of the screen you need for the context of your quotation. This can be done by pressing command-shift-4 then dragging the cursor over the area you want to capture. You now have a PDF document on your Desktop, that you’ll open using Preview.

It is now time to isolate your quotation and define the greyed out area. Make sure the Select Tool is selected from the Tools menu, then select the area you want to be clear around your quotation. Then make another PDF screen capture of your image, including the context for your quotation. This last PDF will again appear on desktop. You can add this document directly in your own work, or Export it to jpg using Preview.

Finally, don’t forget references ! Quoted text from :
http://www.cyberpresse.ca/technosciences/article/1,5296,0,012004,545654.shtml

“To drink more coffee, with or without cafeine, could reduce the risks of diabetes of the type 2, the most traditional form of the disease, according to a new study published Tuesday in the American review Annals of Internal Medicine.”
