Hi Gents and Ladies

We regularly received drawings and need to submit them to clients showing highlighted areas where we are supplying.  We normally simply highlight in pen, label up as phase 1, and phase 2, and then rescan and send.  

I want to make sure that this is all done digitally and was looking for software to do the same thing.  

We need to mark up pdf and cad drawings.. ie create labelled colored box overlays over certain areas of a drawings.  

I have tried various pdf editors including nitro and pdf editor, however it allows us to draw box outlines around images (not colored ) and  allows us to create  hightlighted text. but not whole boxes.  

I can mark it up in Photoshop and do it, however there must be a simpler/ cheaper program to allow our sales people to mark it up.
