Acrobat Reader 7.0 features a new capability to Comment on files sent 
for review from Acrobat 7.0 Pro.

does anyone know if or how to cause pdfTeX to turn on the "Allow 
Commenting" switch? Is it even possible? or has Adobe locked this 
capability up? note that according to Adobe, *only* Acrobat 7.0 
Professional can send files for review.

for background, in Acrobat 7.0, PDF documents with commenting turned on 
have a new "Security" field:

	Commenting: Allowed

Acrobat Reader 7.0 will then allow recipients to mark-up and comment on 
a file (previously only available in Acrobat Standard or Pro), and then 
send their marked-up copy back to the originator--- where it asks if 
you want to merge the comments (whether in Reader or Pro). 
Understandably, this greatly aids review cycles, as you don't have to 
involve paper, file conversions, fonts, etc. also, i've found it quite 

so, can pdfTeX turn on the "Allow Commenting" switch?

have a nice day.yad
