How To Add Comments To A PDF File

Everyone reads books and novels in electronic PDF format. An e-book is typically too long to read in a single sitting. In PDF documents, we need to use a comment to indicate something important, like when reading a real book. When reading a PDF document, the reader will want to mark specific passages using bookmarks in PDF format so they may be reviewed later. Multiple comments can be added to a PDF document.

The Final Word On How to Add Comments to PDF

I hope you can now easily add comments to your PDF files for future reference. This is a disadvanced when you compare a PDF file to a Word document where comments can be easily added. However, the PDF file was designed not to be editable to retain its original settings while printing it from any device or app. Hence the only way to add comments to a PDF file is by using the UPDF app. If you want to perform other functions like adding, removing, merging, splitting, and rotating pages, then you can use Advanced PDF Manager.
