CTAN Up­date: pdf­com­ment

Date: April 2, 2009 11:02:35 PM CEST
On Wed, 1 Apr 2009 Josef Kle­ber sub­mit­ted an up­date to the pdf­com­ment pack­age. 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 XeLaTeX. Un­for­tu­nately, sup­port of PDF an­no­ta­tions by PDF view­ers is sparse to nonex­is­tent. The ref­er­ence viewer for the de­vel­op­ment of this pack­age is Adobe Reader.

pdf­com­ment – A user-friendly in­ter­face to pdf an­no­ta­tions

For a long time pdf 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 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 → dvips → ps2pdf, → dvipdfmx, XeLaTeX and Lua.

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