Mathematics Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for people studying math at any level and professionals in related fields. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Many of the math textbooks and other literature I read is in PDF format, so I frequently find myself annotating these with the Adobe Reader comments tool.

I did find a helpful guide here, but sometimes I'd like the option of inserting math symbols, too. Has anyone found a reliable way to insert math symbols, TeX, or other arbitrary formatting into the annotations?

So far, the best I've come up with is to enter the unicode prefixed by "0x" and hit alt+X after it. Maybe with the Adobe javascript SDK you could write a script to shortcut this.

I now know this can be done, with some tedious Java programming similar to this one app (or here) I worked on to compose TeX on Android and save to PDF (but later gave up on because coding with the available tools is thankless labor). Basically do the reverse; PDF to TeX, then save back to PDF. –  Not a NaN notha Aug 10 '13 at 21:08
