Is there a PDF viewer for linux which supports highlighting (marking) a selected piece of text with color? Or any form of plugin for a popular PDF viewer? I also wish the markers could be saved with the file and removable. The adobe reader (maybe full version) for windows has such a function.
I'm using Fedora Core3, and have had "PDF viewer" and "Adobe Reader 5.0" installed.

I'm not talking about the "Text Select" tool of acrobat reader. What I need is a highlight tool, which marks a piece of selected text with color, like what you may see in some web browser such as Firefox (Ctrl-F to invoke the find bar, and there is a highlight option). As I remeber some full version of acrobat reader has that function.
Yeah, since its been a while this thread has been posted I'd like to refresh the query again.
I've found nothing to complain about Linux desktop apps and they all do as good as (if not, better) than most desktop apps on Win-dose. This particular feature being missing is very conspicuous and I'd like to see if there's a solution to it. It'll be helpful to many if someone could suggest a way to get around this problem or, if it calls for, a way to approach the developers for a solution-
thanks in advance
(ps. i've tried Adobe's acrobat reader from its official site. I found it to be very choppy and the whole system freezes when i do a simple menu operation such as select. I am running the linux 2.6.9 series Kernel on Fedora RH3.)
