Great new Microsoft Syntex update has recently become available to allow you to annotate documents in SharePoint. When the file is opened from SharePoint staff can draw and highlight various parts of the document. This allows users to collaborate on files with others by annotating i.e. highlight key sections/values. A key point to note here is that the actual document is not modified and an additional copy of the document is not made. So the document integrity it retained i.e. modified timestamps. Universal annotation is currently available if you have a Syntex per user licence and I think it is only currently available for .PDF and .TIFF files.
