Embed Web based reviews into PDF

Avatar

Level 7

We are using the ESM solution accelerator which initiates web-based reviews.  The comment files created by Acrobat are stored as RSS feeds.  At the end of a stage, I need to deliver a self-contained PDF with all the comments.  I'm looking for DDX or the process to do that.  I have the logic to get at all the supporting files (PDF, comment files) but, I can't seem to figure out how to "import" the RSS feeds as annotations into the source PDF.

Thanks,

Charles

The comments are stored in xml in the review zone provider.

You can use a DDX to import the comments in the PDF.

They are not XFDF comments.  They are an RSS feed.  Check it out:

Assembler only supports FDF and XFDF for comments.

thanks Jasmin,

I figured that from reading the documentation.  I was hoping that somebody has solved this problem.

We'll have to write a routine to convert Acrobat created RSS comments file to XFDF then, import.  Should be fun!!
