README

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, XLaTeX and LuaLaTeX

Un­for­tu­nately, sup­port of PDF an­no­ta­tions by PDF view­ers may vary. The ref­er­ence viewer for the de­vel­op­ment of this pack­age is Adobe Reader.

Li­cense: LPPL

  • Bug­fix: in­cor­rect ver­ti­cal po­si­tion of su­per­scripts in \pdftooltip

fea­ture re­quest by Ross Moore

pdf­com­ment – A user-friendly in­ter­face to pdf an­no­ta­tions
