"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You need Adobe Acrobat or like product that can accept the writing and then write out a new PDF file. Reader cannot do that.

Is there any software which i can get it for free?

Cute PDF is free so see if that works for you. I prefer good solid software myself.

Foxit Reader allows you to do that (and it's free!) -

You need to get one of the latest versions of Adobe Reader, either XI (11) or the most recent, Document Cloud (DC) — both free! Reader XI is the first version of Adobe Reader that supports annotations/markups. In other words, if you have Reader X (10) or earlier, you won't be able to do it. The current Reader link gets the DC version:

If you prefer the non-DC version, use this link to get Reader XI (latest version is 11.0.10):

In either one select the free form tool, then use your pen:

Reader DC free form tool
Reader XI free form tool
There are also non-Adobe products that support
Here are three excellent PDF readers/viewers (all free!) that can do what you want:

(1) Foxit Reader:

(2) PDF-XChange Editor:

They also have a PRO (non-free) version, but I think you'll find that the free version does everything you need.

(3) Nitro Reader:
