I am attempting to add a a FreeTextAnnotation to an existing PDF that will only show on the PDF when printing, following the example at the bottom of the page here:
When I printed the PDF, the annotation did not show up, so I removed the AnnotationFlags.NoView flag. After that, the annotation did not show up when opening the file in Acrobat, but if I clicked around where the annotation should have been, a box would be highlighted. If I resized the box, the annotation would then appear.
To make sure this wasn’t an issue with my code, I checked the annotation examples in the Aspose Examples Dashboard to see if I experienced the same issue. I ran the example Aspose.Pdf/Programmers Guide/Working with Annotations/Set Formatting of FreeTextAnnotation. The exact same issue occurred. See attachments for pictures of the issue on the file generated by the Aspose example.
I am running Windows Server 2012 and the latest version of Adobe Acrobat XI. Others in my office tried the same file and experienced the same issue. All of them are using Acrobat XI and Server 2012/ Windows 8.1/ Server 2008 R2.
What we need is for a) the FreeTextAnnotation to show up without resizing the box if the NoView flag is not set, and b) the FreeTextAnnotation to show up on printed paper if the Print flag is set.
