Share PDF Comments Online (Even Without Acrobat)

Use our PDF skins to add commenting features to PDF pages.

Using Acrobat, you can add various comments and annotations to PDF pages. You can also share these comments via email or by configuring Acrobat’s Online Comments. These collaboration tools require all contributors to have Acrobat; they do not work with Reader. And, in general, all contributors must have the same version of Acrobat.

Instead, add online commenting features to PDF pages with our PDF skins [Hack #71] and a couple PHP scripts. Users don’t need Acrobat, so it works on Mac and Linux as well as Windows. And, you can integrate PDF comments with your site’s current commenting system. Our Comments skin, shown in Figure 5-18, will get you up and running.
