The LEADTOOLS v20 SDK supports both importing from and exporting to PDF annotations. For more information about this support, refer to the following page:

The main method used for conversion is the AnnPDFConvertor.ConvertToPDF method. Here is a complete sample function for adding a list of AnnContainers to a PDF:

static void LEADToPDF(IEnumerable<AnnContainer> containers, string pdfFile)
	// Load the information about the PDF file
	PDFFile file = new PDFFile(pdfFile);

	// Convert all annotations
	List<PDFAnnotation> fileAnnotations = new List<PDFAnnotation>();
	int page = 1;
	foreach (AnnContainer container in containers)
		// Convert the page annotations
		List<PDFAnnotation> pageAnnotations = new List<PDFAnnotation>();
		AnnPDFConvertor.ConvertToPDF(container, pageAnnotations, file.Pages[page - 1].Height);

		// Set the page number
		foreach (PDFAnnotation annotation in pageAnnotations)
			annotation.PageNumber = page;

		// Add to the total list

		// Increment the page count

	// Write the annotations to the file
	file.WriteAnnotations(fileAnnotations, pdfFile);

Sample Project:
This project is from an old post, but has been updated to the LEADTOOLS v20 SDK using Visual Studio 2017. Note, the new project is now a console application that can be unzipped to any directory. If you do not have the LEADTOOLS SDK installed in "C:\LEADTOOLS 20", simply update the output path inside the project configuration.
