While working with PDF documents in which text is organized into 2 columns, MarginNote does not seem to recognize that text in the right column is read after text in the left column. As a result, notes (document mode) and excerpts (mind map mode) are not sequenced properly according to how concepts were presented in the source PDF. Rather, they are sequenced according to their distance from the top of the page. As an example, a note/excerpt from the top of the right column will always be positioned ABOVE a note/excerpt from the bottom of the left column even though all text in the right column is read after that in the left column.
Other PDF reading applications correctly recognize that text in the left column precedes that in the right column and can present annotations and highlighted passages in the correct order. Is there a setting/fix for this in MarginNote or will I always have to rearrange excerpts manually in the mind map/outline if I want them to follow the same sequence of ideas as in the source article? There does not seem to be any way of doing this with notes in document mode.
Definitely an unexpected and major limitation, as pretty much every source PDF I need to work with is organized into 2 columns of text
