How to Annotate PDF with Text Box on Windows?


PDF Reader Pro supports the Text Box tool, which allows you to insert a box and input texts within it. You can place the text box anywhere on the page that you're reading and adjust its size to make it best fit your document. The text does not act as a pop-up note. Instead, it will remain visible on your PDF page.
