This question already has an answer here:

I've looked in the Software Centre but no mention of highlight features for the various PDF edit software.

I've installed adobe reader 9 but it doesn't seem to have the option.

Does anyone know of a PDF editor/reader that will let me highlight?

I'm running Ubuntu 13.04

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You're certain that it's not just that one PDF that isn't highlightable, right? Not every PDF document is able to be used in a "highlight" feature. – Thomas W. Sep 12 '13 at 6:33
try okular .It can highlight but its KDE based – Stormvirux Sep 12 '13 at 6:40
And if you want to do have more features try xournal – Manuel Sep 12 '13 at 6:44

Okular supports PDF annotations.

For more see here


Using wine you can use Foxit reader as explained here. Foxit runs pretty well using wine in Ubuntu
