Subject Re: annotations not displayed in other viewers
Date Tue, 15 Aug 2017 04:03:53 GMT
by the way

came across a post that confirmed this a bug for pdfbox

seems creating annotations, no appearance stream is included. that's why
viewers dont show any annotations

is this still a bug? or has this been fixed? if so, please advise how ?

thank you very much
