How to add comments to PDF in SharePoint

Muhimbi’s PDF Editor for SharePoint lets you add comments to a PDF directly in SharePoint Online or On-premise. Start by dropping your comment to a specific location in your document and then customize its colors to make it stand out. Comments can also include a user's name to help you identify who left specific feedback on a document after multiple users have added comments.
