    Hi,

      I'm sure this questions has come up before and I apologize if that's true. I did search but can't find an answer. I am a complete newbie to Sliverlight. We want to open pdfs in a browser (pulled form a

    database field), annotate it and then save it back to the database with the annotations. We would like to use text of course. One post I saw recently said this was very difficult since you have to emulate

    font and font size. I'm not sure if I'll need a 3rd party tool for this or if there is another way to do it.

       Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Fig000

    Hi Neil,

    You will need some kind of 3rd party software to do that. Telerik does not offer such a component, but this is what I've found after a quick Google search:

    I hope this helps.

    Best wishes,
