Question: Editing PDFs attached to notes

I have saved several PDFs to Notes on my Mac. When I open them in Preview I can highlight passages. But Preview insists it can't save these changes to the original document, so I have to save a new version elsewhere. This is very inconvenient. I guess I'll have to keep all the PDFs in the cloud somewhere with links in Notes. Can this really be the way Notes is supposed to handle PDFs? Am I missing some functionality here? Thanks for any help!

MacBook Pro with Retina display, macOS High Sierra (10.13.3)

Answer:

It looks like what I need to do is use Notes' Markup feature rather than the editing functions in Preview. Markup doesn't seem to have a search function but otherwise seems pretty good. Anyway this seems to be the answer.
