Looking for above-mentioned tool to work with PDFs. Following functions are desired:
- Draw lines, rectangles, circles for annotations
- Include comments (as in actual text onto the PDF, not speech bubbles)
- Permanently affix signatures
- Permanently affix other logos
So far, points (1) to (3) can be achieved with Adobe Reader but I cannot find a reasonably easy solution for (4). If I have to, I don't mind working with 2 programs although 1 program for all the above would be highly desirable. Much thanks in advance for any recommendations.
@RockPaperLizard: By flatten, I mean to make elements (such as points 3 and 4) permanently part of the PDF file and not removable. Of course, if the reader wishes, they can always print screen the document to extract the image but what I have inserted into the flattened PDF should stay there unless a crude method such as putting a whitebox over the area is employed to block the image. @Izzy: To run on Windows (7, 8, 10 etc) would be sufficient. Preferably free / open source per subject, otherwise I would have to write a paper to the company for approval. In such case, I much prefer the software to be under perpetual licensing unless the annual increment is small.
