Check to see if Security is defined in this PDF file. The person who creates a PDF file can define Security that does not allow adding annotations or markups (including measurements) to the PDF. If you can’t check the Make Annotation and Store Scale in Page check boxes and all the markup tools are grayed out, then the Security of this PDF does not allow markups to be created.
