Hi,

 

When I have the raw PDF data, for example, read from <input type="file"/>, I'd like to ask if it's possible to get all the annotations from the pdf file, without first rendering it somewhere, then use the getAnnotationManager().

 

thanks.

Any decent PDF Library will allow you to extract annotations. Just search for one that meets your skill set.

If you are using Embed API, the PDF does need to render but it doesn't need to be visible. However, there are other tools that can be used to read the annotations in a PDF.
