Clipboard data format used by annotations

Post by SchorschGaggo »

I have to place several thousand text annotations on the PDF. The annotation text is generated by a database. It is my job to place them on the right spot in the PDF. Now I'd like to generate these annotations and put them to the clipboard, from where I can place on the PDF. This should include dimension, frame, background, color, font, size and text. It should be possible to place a set of annotations to the clipboard. And it should be possible to insert them at the cursor position.
Will this be possible? And where will I find the clipboard format used by annotations ? Are there API functions to create such objects ?

If you want to import a bunch of annotations into the document, the best way is to form an XFDF file and import it.
