An alternative is to download PDF Studio from Qoppa Software. With this commercial desktop tool, you can read directly from your scanner into PDF files. The resulting pages can be marked by you with graphical, text, bookmarks, watermarks, or you can even digitally sign them.
The free version will let you read and mark, with the demo watermark on the files you see or save.
Qoppa also now offers a no charge PDF reader for Android devices, and a commercial PDF tool that allows you to fill interactive forms and markup PDF documents so your markups can be viewed in other PDF readers.
Adobe invented the PDF standard, and Qoppa is helping to make it ubiquitous by delivering self-contained software that runs on all platforms and produces PDF standard output.
