I am suspicious that this response is product SPAM as it does not  
answer the question, and it picks up a thread more than a year old. We  
were not talking about annotation. Any self respecting PDF viewer can  
do that. We were talking about Enabling Commenting.

The short answer is: Acrobat Pro or Standard. The long answer is  
enough to prohibit any third party from signing a document with  
Adobe's secret (private) key.

Just FYI.

have a day.yad
