I sometimes use pdfxchange for windows when I want to study pdf files, as I am able to comment, draw stuff, highlight, etc.

Is there any software that could do that (for either Windows or Linux) for djvu files in a simple, straightforward way (as how pdfxchange handles PDF files)?

Linux: According to this forum from a year ago, there are two options in Linux: djvusmooth and the GNU ELPA djvu package.

Windows: WinDjView has user annotations.

Mac: I don't know of any.

And of course, if you only have a few DjVu files, there is always the option of converting to PDF and then using your favorite PDF viewer.

Are you sure that zathura can do that? I've been using it for a while now and I can't see how it does.. – geo909 Apr 21 '15 at 13:56
No, I was basing that off what I read on the zathura website, but now that I revisit it I think I made a mistake. I've edited my answer. (If you find d that it's possible, feel free to edit back.) – Jess Riedel Apr 21 '15 at 15:36
