What are the best PDF annotation tools in Ubuntu Linux?
I had been looking for a pdf annotation tool in Linux for a long time, here are my needs:highlight textinsert text commentdraw rectangle around textdraw oval around textcompatible with Adobe Acrobat, I mean, its annotations can be deleted or modified by Adobe Acrobat and vice versa.with search capacityfast response for large pdf document with up to a thousand pagesbetter has Windows version though not very importantI had tried Evince, Xournal, Okular, Adobe Reader, Foxit Reader, until I found Qoppa Software and PDF Studio (Qoppa Software) which completely meets my needs. Both old version of Adobe Reader and Foxit Reader run in wine, and I think you will not be satified with them. Here I compare the other four pdf software.Evince: a perfect pdf viewer but without annotation capacityXournal: treat each page as an image, so you are drawing on an image, and it doesn’t support search and is not compitable with Adobe AcrobatOkular: perhaps the best free pdf annotation tool in Linux, it supports 9 ways to annotate, limited but enough, one major flaw is that once you made an annotation, you cannot adjust its position or size any more.PDF Studio: a tool comparable with Adobe Acrobat, written in Java, cross platform, so you can use it under Linux, Windows and Mac.You can see the comparison between PDF Studio and Adobe Acrobat at Compare PDF Studio with Acrobat and other PDF annotating software. PDF Studio is commercial software and have a free trial PDF Studio Free Download.
What are Slack's competitors?
I’m not sure these count as direct competitors (especially since they all have Slack integrations), but, to me, apps like Trello, RocketBolt, and Zendesk at least dip their toes into grabbing some of Slack’s prime user market share.Basically, any app that support team communication for a more specific part of your company’s workflow has the potential to pull eyeballs away from Slack.My company started out as big Slack users. Once we began using Trello, we started communicating about team projects inside there, and our Slack usage decreased. Then we switched to RocketBolt for our CRM and started using it to communicate about sales, so Slack usage dropped again. Plus, all our Customer Support still runs through Zendesk (tried to pipe it into Slack, but it just didn’t work as well).These days we mostly use Slack for inter office chatter, and more of the “real work conversations” happens inside other platforms.That being said, we’re not going to be canceling our Slack accounts anytime soon, so I guess these other apps aren’t competitive in a “use one or the other” sense. But they are pulling away Slack mindshare and usage within our company.
What is a good website for free books?
Edit Oct 2014: http://booksee.org and http://bookzz.org seem to be the two working versions now. Edit July 2014: Bookfi is gone, but http://bookzz.org seems to be the official clone now. Edit April 2014: bookza is down, but /, another clone of bookOS/za is up now! Also, is another clone. These just pop up!Edit January 2014: http://bookza.org is a functional clone of bookos that's live today!Edit December 2013: Unsurprisingly bookos seems down for good now. At the moment, it seems http://en.bookos.org/ is unbeatable. Direct downloads, amazing selection, no ads, etc... prolly won't stay up for too long though.
Does adding user's annotations to a publisher-copyrighted academic paper PDF count as derivative work that I could post online? Or will I get takedown notices?
It is not a derivative work. I don't know for sure that you'll get in trouble, but you'll be safer if you just link to it if you want to comment on it.If it's your own work that a publisher has copyrighted, read the paperwork you signed when submitting it. Many publishers actually allow the author to post a copy to their own website (sadly, not very many authors take advantage of that). If it's your own you can also post a pre-publication/unedited version.Some people also privately e-mail copies or link to files on DropBox, but that won't work if you want to post to a blog or something (though I'm not sure why you would want/need to - even if you're critiquing you can summarize the argument they make and then continue with your critique).
