- How can I highlight or annotate PDFs? 25 answers
I started annotating a pdf on a windows machine but then I wanted to make some changes on my Linux machine later. I have the native Linux acroread 9 installed which can do comments but there's a 50% chance a given document is locked or in some way broken and in
Commenting: Not Allowed (for that matter this might happen with the latest versions too, not sure). I also run into huge performance issues when viewing comments (extreme, and I mean extreme, lag on a decent PC).
So I thought I'd try a newer version of Adobe reader under wine. This did not work out at all (as of July 2014) with the installer failing to create any files or crashing at launch when copying from a windows install.
How can I reliably add/edit annotations to PDFs on linux, yet allow all those non-techie people who use the windows and Adobe reader to see and interact with them?
