Reading Notes

With Acrobat and with some documents in Adobe Reader, a user can add comments to a PDF document. This capability is one of the most important features of Acrobat. You can collaborate on a document by using comments to give feedback, such as requesting changes, making important areas pop out, or marking up areas you want removed. Comments can be simple text notes, but they can also be file attachments, sound files, or even movie clips. Notes are probably the most common annotations. You can find more information on commenting and reviewing in Chapters 7 and 8.

To read notes in Acrobat

1.
Locate the note that you wish to read on a PDF document.

They look like small speech bubbles (Figure 2.8).

Other types of annotations will display different icons, such as a rubber-stamp picture, a microphone, highlighted text, and so on.

2.
Double-click the note (or other icon) with the Hand tool to display all of its text (Figure 2.9), as well as when and by whom it was written.
