Linux users - this might be the reader/editor that you are looking for 1 Helpful

Comment by music
about Master PDF Editor Jul 2015

After a 'HUGE' amount of searching for just a 'reader' that can do bookmarks and annotations which are permanent (The ones that okular does are not in the pdf file and so they are lost when you take it out on your pen drive or send it to some), this seems to be the only acceptable one.

jpdfbookmarks does only bookmarks and nothing else.

Windows users have it real good as far as pdf software goes (pdfxchange viewer etc)

The software looks nice, and it IS free, but it will inject a watermark. $50 for the un marked version.
