➤ Please note that Weava only visually renders the highlights from your current active folder. 
➤ You can enable/disable the Weava highlighter pop-up with the keyboard shortcut Alt+S (Option+S on Mac). And you can customize your Weava shortcuts in your Google Chrome settings (chrome://extensions/shortcuts)
➤ While Weava works on most websites, please note that some websites have conflicting code that results in the Weava highlighter not functioning properly. 
➤ Weava fetches and visually renders your color highlights based on the respective URL you first made the highlight on (for websites and online PDFs). Please note that, while your highlights and annotations are always saved in the Weava sidebar and dashboard, if the website URL for some reason changes, then the visual rendering of your highlights are not visible unless you update the URL in the "Edit Source" functionality on the Weava dashboard. 
➤ You can 1) highlight local PDFs directly from your computer. 2) Online PDFs, and 3) upload PDFs directly to Weava. Uploading PDFs will ensure you the smoothest experience.
➤ You are currently unable to directly highlight on PDFs inside certain 3rd party software, such as in Google Classroom, Blackboard and Canvas. Instead you would need to first download the PDF and then use it with Weava. We hope to have better solutions towards this in the future.

Weava's requested permissions are needed for Weava to function properly. However, the exact phrases provided by Chrome for these permissions are misleading and make them sound more invasive than they actually are — and you will generally see the same exact warnings on practically all Chrome extensions. Here's a further breakdown of the required permissions to run Weava:
① "Read and change all your data on the website you visit"
➤ "Read": The Weava Chrome extension has passed all of Google’s automated and manual security checks and is safe to use. The extension reads the current URL of the page you make highlights on - and is also checking if you have existing highlights on this URL so that it can visually show these to you. That's it.
➤"Change": Weava needs to modify the website you are visiting in order to show you the Chrome extension highlighter pop-up on top of it. Weava also needs this permission to be able to change the text background color accordingly whenever you make a highlight.
② "Modify data you copy and paste."
➤ Weava needs this permission simply to create and save the highlights you are making. Without it we would just be a nice color tool but without the capabilities to save the exact content you highlighted and show this to you in the Weava sidebar and dashboard.
③ Separately, in the Weava Chrome extension settings, you can enable "Allow access to file URLs" which gives Weava permission to read PDF local file paths so that you can highlight PDFs directly from local files on your computer. Similarly to highlights on websites, it ONLY reads the file path of the file you are highlighting on and it is only doing this in order to be able to save the highlight and to fetch and visually render these highlights on subsequent visits.

By installing the extension, you agree to Weava's Terms and and Privacy Policy (https://weavatools.com/terms-and-privacy).

This used to be such a useful extension but became unusable after some recent updates. Files no longer open properly, the weava dashboard doesn't work, the extension freezes my browser and uses so much memory that my computer starts overheating. I wish there was an option to go back to the older version, but for now I can no longer use this.

Works very well and is incredibly useful even with the free version, but lately I've found that it's very slow to switch between folders. This slows down work where I'm trying to save different highlights to different folders for later reference.

While it works, it work really good and lots of good options of colour to choose from. However not every website is saved which is so frustrating with trying to highlight studies for University, just hope these issues are fix in the near future.
