What are PDF annotations?

Annotations enable users to mark up and comment on PDFs without altering the original author's content.

What are the benefits of embedded annotations?

Annotation enables document readers or reviewers to highlight important information for future readers and enhances collaboration in a single application. This eliminates the need for switching between applications and contexts, which increases productivity. The Apryse Developer Suite of SDKs makes it quick and easy to embed this functionality into any client or server-side application.

It offers diverse tools such as sticky notes, comments, freehand drawings, and file attachments, along with the ability to export annotations,and merge them permanently into documents.

How can I annotate video files?

Annotating video files directly inthebrowser enables frame-by-frame review for quick collaboration and efficient production of the final product. Potential video annotations includes freehand drawings, shapes, text, comments, image stamps, and more.

Typically, permissions can be applied to the annotations, controlling who can view them, determining if some users have read-only access, and specifying whether users can add their own annotations.
