Electronic note taking on a PDF workbook

2 Adobe Reader®

Using Adobe® Reader®

Adobe Reader may already be installed on your computer or mobile device. If you can't open a PDF document though, go to the appropriate place to download it. It is a FREE product.

Once Adobe Reader has been installed on your system it will be the default program/app used to open PDF documents.

Adding annotations

Adobe Reader allows you to:

  • Add typed text to a document
  • Add a 'comment' or 'sticky note' box
  • Highlight text
  • Freehand 'scribble' or draw on the document
  • Fill in predefined fields with text

The method used, and the options available, vary slightly depending on whether you are using the Adobe Reader program or App. Please see the appropriate sub-chapter for instructions on how to do this.
