flpsed

flpsed is a WYSIWYG PostScript annotator. You can't actually edit existing documents, but you can add arbitrary text lines to existing documents. Added lines can later be re-edited with flpsed. Using pdftops, flpsed can import PDF documents and also add text to them. It is useful for filling in forms, adding notes, etc. In batch mode, it can be used to automate form filling.

            PDF metadata seems to be more suitable for this.

            pdftk allows to read or modify it.

            I don't know whether there is a Postscript equivalent

            however. Or maybe your indexing tool looks at

            Postscript comments?

            No, because then it overlaps the black color of the text. (Well, perhaps, zero-sized notes would also be a solution.) Does Postscript envisage transparent colors?

            Can't you just use white as text color?

            trivial feature request: transparent notes
            What about adding notes that are not shown in any way in a generated document (but the text is still there)?

            What for? Suppose, we have some scanned pages and would like to make the document searchable (for some keywords). OCR doesn't work. The solution would be to add such transparent notes.
