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

  • 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 Ward Sep 12 '13 at 6:33

Okular supports PDF annotations.

For more see here

Or

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

UPDATE 2

Foxit has released a linux version. So no more wine required. Foxit has a good support for annotation.

UPDATE You can also use qpdfview which provides highlighting and annotation support.

    Foxit is available for linux now. It handles annotations and highlighting pretty well. foxitsoftware.com/downloads – brainbreaker May 1 '16 at 4:43
