pdf manipulation


hello!

in pdf files, I want to:
  1. highlight text
  2. add commments to text / annotate text
  3. add bookmarks to text or pages, and display a list of them in a pane, in order to click and access them instantly

how can I do these?

thanks!

what operating system are you on ?


there is also OpenOffice

but ALL THREE on the top of the above list WORK .
and ARE almost ALWAYS installed BY default on MOST operating systems
a gmone desktop WILL have "Evince" INSTALLED
a KDE desktop will have " Okular" installed

Evince and Okular are PDF viewers, not editors. To edit a pdf you could try pdfedit or do it on-line at pdfescape:
http://pdfedit.cz/en/index.html
http://www.pdfescape.com/
I haven't tried either.

Okular can add highlight ad annotations just fine (enter review/edit mode first). But it have hard time saving them back into the original PDF other export options are available)

LibreOffice or OpenOffice with the PDF import plugin work. There is also "PDFEdit".

OpenOffice imports into Draw, then you export as pdf. It's a bit slow and some documents just don't load, in my experience. On the odd occasions I've needed to alter something, I've extracted the page with pdftk, edited it in Gimp, exported, and re-inserted; but it's not an experience I'd recomend! If you try pdfedit, let us know if it's any good.

PS
Rather belatedly, I've looked at Wikipedia. There's an article "List of PDF software" that seems to cover everything!
