How to add attachments to PDF.

Use the "Add Attachment" tool to embed a file at a selected location in a PDF, so that the reader can open it for viewing. By adding attachments as comments, you can reference longer documents that can't easily be pasted into a pop-up note or text box. If you move the PDF to a new location, the embedded file attachments automatically go with it. To view an attachment, the reader must have an application installed that can open the attachment.

  • Click the "Comment>Attachment" button, and click on the page where you want to add this comment.
