Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Re: Annotating PDF files

I looked in my Acrobat Standard 7.0 for such an enabling feature 
and didn't find it.  Here is what the Adobe Reader FAQ says about 
the subject.

Q. Can I add comments to a PDF file with Adobe Reader?

A. PDF authors using Adobe LiveCycle enterprise server and design 
software can activate special features in their documents that 
provide additional functionality. These enabled Adobe PDF files 
allow people with Adobe Reader to save the file to a local hard 
drive, fill out forms, add comments and other markups, share it 
with others, and submit a completed document electronically. In 
addition, Adobe PDF files can be enabled to allow people to 
digitally sign, certify, and authenticate a document.
