Annotating and Commenting PDFs

Annotations and comments allow you to markup parts of the PDF. While annotations and comments are contained within the PDF they are not a part of the PDF original content. This allows them to be moved, edited, or deleted more easily. This section covers the tasks associated with annotations and comments and also provides examples of each of the markups that can be used in PDF Studio.
