... Most of our manuals are in the PDF format and uploaded to our support
website. The manuals are also a part of the product CDs that reach the
customer. We have a very inviting line such as "Send your comments

site but have not found any takers for this so far over the years!
This is proof that suggests end users do not like the idea of typing a

Did you consider using an interactive "feedback" bookmark in your PDFs?

Bookmarks are visible independently of the page being displayed (especially if the the "feedback" bookmark shows up in the top part of your bookmark panel). You can assign distinct visual properties to such bookmarks, and even have pre-populated fields (receipient/s, subject line, or even default message text). Depending on your audience, the message may even include HTML formatting.

See for more info + sample files.
