pdfcomment – A user-friendly interface to pdf annotations
For a long time pdfLaTeX has offered the command
\pdfannot for inserting arbitrary PDF annotations.
However, the command is presented in a form where additional
knowledge of the definition of the PDF format is indispensable.
This package is an answer to the – occasional –
questions in newsgroups, about how one could use the comment
function of Adobe Reader. At least for the writer of LaTeX code,
the package offers a convenient and user-friendly means of using
\pdfannot to provide comments in PDF files.
Since version v1.1, pdfcomment.sty also supports LaTeX → dvips → ps2pdf, LaTeX → dvipdfmx, and X∃LaTeX.
Unfortunately, support of PDF annotations by PDF viewers is sparse to nonexistent. The reference viewer for the development of this package is Adobe Reader.
