How easy is it to draw on the pdf's and how accurate can you draw or correct a detail ?

We've been experimenting on a couple projects with the following scenario:

 

  • GC posts the drawings on the project website in pdf format
  • Each entity (arch/SE/GC) makes its corrections on the same file in a different color
  • Once corrections are complete, "marked up" pdf files released to the sub-contractor

 

This saves time, money and trees.

 

Funny thing is, some subs actually refuse this option, instead, sending six sets of bluelines; of which

Only one or two are used. The "original" is marked up and the rest are along for the ride.
