    Hello Somendra

    By 'comments in it' do you mean a pdf with annotations?

    I know the way for handling annotations, but I want to know how to handle the comments in pdf files, using FPK kit. Comments are different from annotations. These comments are displayed like icons on the page, and on clicking on it, the contents will be displayed in separate blocks. Please refer comments in pdf files for further information. I want info on handling such comments in the PDF files using fpk kit.

    By your description, you are referring to a Text Annotation (8.4 of PDF Reference 1.7), while Comments just refer to source-level comments inside the document file. Please, if that's not the case, point me to the right specification.

    Please add comments in pdf file and try to view them on preview and FPK app, you will see the comments as triangular icon in preview where as in FPK you will not see anything. In my app I've video annotations, and for each page the annotations are getting recognized in my code. If text comments are processed as text annotations then I should get them in the annotations array. So annotations are different from comments, hope this info is giving you clear idea, for more info please mail me back.

    Hey, I would like to precisely put my requirement and here is the brief detail on it.

    Is it possible to read the Sticky Notes from pdf File and add them as overlay in the correct page?
    As my client is expecting to view sticky notes in the viewer and have overlay presentation for the contents. Any updates on this will be a great help. My client is eager to use this framework in their App. Please let us know ASAP, as we need this very urgently...
    Thanks in advance,
