Chapter 5 – Comments
A comment is a written note intended as an explanation, an illustration, or a statement of fact or
opinion, especially a remark that expresses a personal reaction or attitude. You can type a text
message or add a line, circle, or other shape to make comments on PDFs you are reading with Foxit
Reader commenting tools. Most types of comments contain a pop-up window displaying your
name, date and time you created the comments, and a text message. You can also edit, reply,
delete, and move the comments with ease. This function is quite helpful to your studies and work
if you have to make some notes on PDF documents.
