Adding markup to a PDF file

You use Ricoh ProcessDirector Plug-in for Adobe Acrobat to add markup to a PDF file that represents your production PDF files. You mark up a PDF file by drawing a box around existing content or by drawing a box to add new markup. You can preview the PDF file as you add markup to verify its content and placement on specific pages. When you are done enhancing the sample PDF file, you save your changes to one or more control files and make them accessible by a Ricoh ProcessDirector server so it can apply the control files to production PDF files.

Before you add markup to a PDF file, you must define the page grouping for the documents in the PDF file. When previewing the page placement of markup, you may not be able to view the placement or content that Ricoh ProcessDirector applies to markup when processing your Ricoh ProcessDirector workflows. Ricoh ProcessDirector Plug-in for Adobe Acrobat may not have access to all of the properties that you use to define both page placement rules and markup content (such as in text and barcodes). See the help on previewing a PDF file for more information.

When Ricoh ProcessDirector applies markup defined in the control files that you specified in a BuildPDFFromDocuments step, Ricoh ProcessDirector applies the markup in this order:

  • Hidden areas
  • Images
  • Text
  • OMR marks
  • Barcodes
