# PDF Annotations

PDF annotations provide a nice way to add notes to your document (actually they are much more powerful, but i have merely used text annotations so far):

``````\pdfannot{/Subtype/Text/Contents(TEXT)}
``````

You can also force the annotations to the margin paragraph:

``````\marginpar{\pdfannot{/Subtype/Text/Contents(TEXT)}}
``````

The standard LaTeX line break using `\\` does not work, therefore:

``````\marginpar{\edef\\{\string\r}\pdfannot{/Subtype/Text/Contents(TEXT)}}
``````

Be caseful to limit the `edef` construct to the PDF annotation. This is achieved by the `marginpar` command here.

You can also adjust the size of the PDF annotation:

``````\pdfannot with 10cm depth 7cm {/Subtype/Text/Contents(TEXT)}
``````
