What are the different types of annotations?

There are many types of them, but they can all be grouped into one of these three categories.

1. Text

These annotations can be added to text in a variety of ways. These annotations are used to notify the

reader of a desired change or clarification. For example, the Strike Through can be used to mark text

that should not be ignored or removed. You can add text to existing text by adding annotations. These

text appear on the page as a Free Text. You can add more information to these annotations by adding a

pop-up to them.

2. Shape

These annotations are displayed as shapes on the PDF page. These shapes can be used for drawing

attention to sections of the page. These shapes can be placed anywhere on the page. You can also

assign pop-ups to give additional information.

3. Additional Functions

These annotations are used to add functionality to the document. This functionality includes links,

sounds that play when an icon clicks, files attached to the file, embedded videos, and other forms rich

media. These are generally not used, or very rarely used, to annotate a paper but they are more likely to

be incuded as part of the main content. These annotations are listed in the PDF specification.

What could I use annotations to do?

Annotations can be useful in many situations. I have already mentioned them. Here are some examples

of when to annotate pdf documents.

Reading proof

You may not want anyone to edit your draft when you are writing it. You can save the document as PDF

so that other people can view and edit it. Annotations can be added to documents that need to be

modified, discussed, or removed completely. This allows others to markup PDF content that needs

changing and then provide more details in pop-ups. The original text will not be altered.

Improved readability


Annotations can be used to simplify reading an electronic document. This can be done in many different

ways. A pop-up with an Underline may give the user additional information on a topic if they are unsure.

You can use links to jump between sections in a document that refer to one another. To provide

information about sections, arrows with pop-ups can be placed over diagrams or images.

Notes

Annotations are extremely useful when you have complicated documents such as technical

specifications. Annotations can be used to make notes about any peculiarities that are found in technical

specifications. You can also add annotations to track where you have implemented certain parts of the

technical specifications. This will provide a guide for anyone working in a development environment.
