New PDF Comment 1: Stamp Tool (See Example PDF and Example PDFill Project File  )

You can apply a stamping to a PDF in the same way you apply a rubber stamp to a paper document.  When working in a team, the stamping gives you a quick and simple way of indicating the status of the document in review.  When opened, they display a pop-up window containing the text or image of the associated note.  You can save a Stamp Object as a name so that you can reuse it later for other PDFill projects.
