Mathematical Annotations in PDF Part II – Introducing pdfnoterPosted: August 13, 2011
In my last post I presented a way to make annotations to a pdf document using LaTeX and the ingenious pdf tool pdftk. While the procedure I described served its purpose, it was quite tedious and not really practical.
But there is hope: caks, after I contacted him about my solution, went ahead and greatly simplified the procedure by scripting it. Please visit his Github page for the latest version of his pdfnoter. All you need to know is described there.
He’s also not stopping there. Ultimately, we want to have some kind of GUI, maybe even an extension to a pdf viewer, so that annotations can be, in fact, TeXed directly into your document. Currently caks is working on making the installation of the pdfnoter more convenient. Look out for further updates and posts!
If you have any comments and suggestions on the project you can also post them here. Any kind of input would be greatly appreciated!
