okular annotation on linux

If you want to add comments / notes and highlight text in Linux with a native PDF viewer Okular is your huckleberry

Note: I found that you have to do a File ==> Save As and resave PDF documents annotated with Okular in order to be able to view the annotations in Acrobat Reader / Gnome Document Viewer otherwise the annotations are only visible when you view in Okular.



ProgramSupports Annotation
Adobe Acrobat Reader 9.5.5No
Document Viewer (Gnome default)No
Okular (KDE PDF Viewer)Yes
