Readers or reviewers who have the full-feature editor/reader tool that comes with the full Acrobat product (and which Adobe, in their wisdom, chose to call by exactly the same name as the full product suite, e.g. Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Deluxe or Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Professional) can add comments and other markup to any PDF file that doesn't have security settings that prevent commenting.
Reviewers/readers who do not have the full Acrobat product suite can only add comments to a PDF if *both* the following conditions are true: 1) The reviewer is using Adobe Reader 7.0 or later. (Acrobat Reader 6.x is not good enough). 2) The PDF must have been specifically enabled for commenting via Adobe Reader 7.x using the Adobe Acrobat 7.x editor/reader tool. This is *never* the default state for PDFs; it *must* be explicitly enabled after the PDF has been generated. Note that because this is a post process step, you can use Acrobat 7.x to enable commenting on PDFs that were created with older versions of Acrobat. My opinions only; I don't speak for Intel.

Trouble is, the reviewers can't add comments and she doesn't know why. This is the first time she's done it and doesn't know whether it's her security settings, preferences, or version of the software. She is using the full version of Acrobat 6.0. Does 6.0 allow recipients to comment or does she have to upgrade to Acrobat 7.0 or 7.0 Pro? I have 7.0 Pro on my machine and haven't had any problems.
