One of my clients is a medical device manufacturer.

I'm faced with is marking up their PDFs, most coming from InDesign IFUs
(user manuals). Here I'm accustomed to using the variety of markup options
Adobe offers, without regard for resultant hard copy.

But from my client's POV, they don't use any of those because when they
print a "redline," none of those items appear on the hard copy. (They use a
100% paper-based doc control system.) Their solution is to only use the
Acrobat *Comment* drawing tools, making almost exclusive use of the *Text
Callout* item.

I'm afraid that when I get done marking up the IFU I'm working on that
there will be so many of these callouts that it'll be nothing but a huge

I'm proceeding per my marching orders, but am wondering if any of you have
a better methodology that would satisfy all parties (esp. doc control and
all of the other reviewers, of which there are apparently many).
