Asked On April 11, 2016 02:07 PM UTC

I need to create an application which allows the user to do the following

1.Inline editing of forms-meaning display the pdf and let user enter data into the text boxes
2.free hand annotations - let user draw annotations on the pdf document

Just want to ask if this is supported

Thanks in advance
