TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Acrobat 8 Professional (not Standard) lets you throw a switch that
turns on the commenting functions in Acrobat, if that is what you mean
by annotation. Form saving, too, if you have fewer than 500 users.
The option to turn on commenting in Reader existed in Acrobat 7 Pro as
well, but not the capability to add form saving.
You cannot do this at creation. It is done post-creation with a simple
menu action. Your end users will need Reader 6 or better to add
If you just want to mark up a PDF yourself and don't want to add
rights for other users, take a look at www.pdfnitro.com.
