    Highlighting text in PDFs generated by OpenOffice

      I want to create PDFs using OpenOffice where the text can be highlighted in Adobe Reader.
      The generated PDFs can be highlighted without a problem in PDF-XChange Viewer and it also claims that the PDFs security settings allow for doing that.
      But when I use Adobe Reader 9, it says that commenting were disallowed and does not give me access to the highlighting tool.

      Here is a sample PDF created with OpenOffice 3:

      So does PDF-XChange Viewer lie about the PDFs security settings and circumvent them, does the PDF actually allow commenting but Adobe Reader doesn't recognize it or do I have to use Adobe software to create commentable/highlightable PDFs?
