Entangled states with a positive partial transpose (so-called PPT states) are central to many interesting problems in quantum theory. On the one hand, they are considered to be weakly entangled, since no pure state entanglement can be distilled from them. On the other hand, it has been shown recently that some of these PPT states exhibit genuinely high-dimensional entanglement, i.e., they have a high Schmidt number. Here we investigate the (d×d)-dimensional PPT states for d≥4 discussed recently by E. Sindici and M. Piani [Phys. Rev. A 97, 032319 (2018)2469-992610.1103/PhysRevA.97.032319]. By generalizing their methods to the calculation of Schmidt numbers, we show that a linear d/2 scaling of its Schmidt number in the local dimension d can be attained.
