I'm running Okular 0.20.2 on Ubuntu 12.04, I made some annotations to a PDF file and when I try to save a copy of it with Save as (to preserve the annotations), I get the message:

Your annotations will not be exported.
You can export the annotated document using File -> Export As -> Document Archive

I'm not sure why this happens since Okular should be able to save annotations since version 0.15.

That same page says something about how Okular should have been built using Poppler version 0.20 or later, but I'm not sure how to check this.

  • As for your last remark: do apt-cache showpkg okular and take a look at the Dependencies section. – Jos Mar 12 '15 at 21:11
  • Similar to question number 465903: try to find which version of libpoppler you have (I have 0.31 and it works). The mentioned answers provides some help. – AF7 Mar 12 '15 at 21:59
  • Sadly the comments in that question end up nowhere. – Gabriel Mar 13 '15 at 0:31
  • @Gabriel You can check your poppler version with apt-cache policy libpoppler*. As explained in this Q&A you will need liboppler 0.20+ and an Okular release built against it to annotate PDF files directly. – Glutanimate Mar 13 '15 at 9:40
