Hello Victor,

you don't know me. I checked an old thread on how to add comments to pdf
documents generated with latex located in here _http://_
www.tug.org/pipermail/pdftex/2008-August/007802.html (please remove two
underscores from the link, trying to avoid this mail to end in you spam
folder). I was also looking for a way to add comments to PDF documents
generated by latex because I need to make annotations on my thesis. After a
few failed attempts using acrobat I tried on Foxit Reader. Foxit reader is a
free reasonable good pdf reader that requires much less resources that
acrobat, works very well on slow PCs. Anyway, I was able to insert comments
on the PDF and save it using Foxit. Saved comments are visible in both Foxit
Reader and Acrobat Reader (locked for edition in acrobat, but visible).

I don't really know who are you, but I think that, since someone asked you
about how to add comments, you may inform/publish this methodology so it is
available to more people.

Foxit Reader is available over here _http:_//
www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/reader/ (same as above, remove underscores).

Best Regards!

Antonio Luna

PS. Sorry about my grammar/redaction, I’m still learning English.
