New PDF Comment 5: Sticky Note Tool
(See Example PDF and Example PDFill Project File  )

A text annotation represents a sticky note attached to a point in the PDF document. When closed, the annotation appears as an icon; when open, it displays a pop-up window containing the text of the note in a font and size chosen by the viewer application.

Note: Adobe Reader will use its default font for PDF Commenting Text. So, the text style inside PDFill will be different than that inside Adobe Reader.
To exactly control  the text style (font encode, font name, font size, font style and rotation) in the PDF output , please use the Single Line Text or Multiple Line Text.
You can convert the Commenting Text into the Multiple Line Text from Edit Menu so that the text inside PDFill will match the text inside the PDF output.
