    Can someone recommend me a good PDF annotator with pressure sensitive ink support (wacom type) for Windows 7?

    I am currently using PDF Revu, it is an excellent program, but I want something lighter that doesn't burn through the battery.

    Thanks.

    Drawboard PDF. Much better than PDFannotator.

    OP specifically asked for Windows 7 annotator.

    PDF Annotator. Drawboard is a Metro App.

    Drawboard is cheaper and better. PDF annotator annoys me because I cannot pan the PDF while writing on it. I have to manually select the panning tool.

    Drawboard PDF will not work on Windows 7 though and that is what OP is asking for....

    That's not the case anymore with more recent versions of PDF Annotator: it differentiates between touch and stylus input perfectly. Same for PDF Revu. But this may not be the case in Win 7 though (I think it may only apply to Win 8 and up, not sure).
