PDFs & annotations

We have indexed PDFs documents modified with the Adobe professional to allow users with acrobat reader to annotate them. The annotation works fine outside Alfresco and it works fine too when documents are opened via the CIFS, so the annotation process is just working fine.

The problem occures when the PDF documents are annotated via the WEB Client. Indeed, the document opened in the acrobat reader is a temporary copy, we can annotate it, we can save it, but the original document on the server is not changed and I can imagine that there should be a specific process to upload it once it is saved locally. We tried using the browser acrobat reader plugin (I mean PDF document opened in the browser), we tried using acrobat reader application (We changed the browser definition to open the application outside the browser instead of the plugin), we tried with check out and check in process in Alfresco, but without success.

So my question is :

Is there something special to do to be able to annotate a PDF document via the WEB Client (not CIFS) and to apply the modifications on the original document stored on the server, just like it works for text documents that you may edit directely in the browser ?
