I'm pretty sure the annotation of PDFs changed between the Tiger and
Leopard versions of Preview (disclaimer: I'm not a Leopard user
yet). I remember annotating PDFs in Tiger Preview and discovering
that the annotations are more permanent than I liked, unlike in
Acrobat Pro where you can move, edit, and delete annotations. So I'm
guessing that Leopard Preview is more like Acrobat Pro, and the
annotation is implemented in a way that doesn't show up in other PDF
Have you tried the overpic package? It makes it easy to annotate
graphics in LaTeX.
