Relying on browser could be option here provided that browser can invoke extenral script. But thinking of my group of people, we use free software distributions as endorsed by FSF we do not have neither Firefox nor Chrome. I do not use it for freedom reasons https://www.gnu.org/distros/free-distros.html Maybe external groups could be handling it with other browsers, just thinking. Maybe browsers are much more complicated and not made for PDF browsing and speed of handling PDF with xpdf may be considerable. I have not explored browsers for PDF reference captures. I do like Evince, mupdf, zathura, but I will use any PDF viewer if I have to capture specific page in specific index in the dynamic knowledge repository on my computer. It will become possible to hire even 10-50 people at once worldwide who then capture index items and report to the database directly. Then I can get quickly indexed various PDF files at once which in turn help our clients to pass the crash course faster. While it is easy to teach people to open single program, press a key, and insert title, it is harder and time consuming to teach random people how to use Emacs. This may not be true, it is just my current impression. > As an even better approach, I consider merging of independently > stored PDF file and annotations to it and presenting combined file > with native PDF annotations.

Evince: click clipboard icon on the top left side, add annotations, you can save it as independent file.
