    var textMarkups =
        Where(annotation => annotation.Author.Contains("Cardle Anita L"));
    foreach (PdfMarkupAnnotationData markup in textMarkups)
        //Get all text markup annotations from the retrieved list:
        PdfTextMarkupAnnotationData pdfTextMarkup =
        if (pdfTextMarkup != null)
            //Change the annotation's markup type:
            pdfTextMarkup.MarkupType = PdfTextMarkupAnnotationType.Squiggly;

    var annotations = processor.GetMarkupAnnotationData(1);
    foreach (PdfMarkupAnnotationData annotation in annotations)
        //Get all text annotations:
        PdfTextAnnotationData textAnnotation = annotation.AsTextAnnotation();
        if (textAnnotation != null)

            //Change the annotation icon:
            textAnnotation.IconName = PdfTextAnnotationIconName.Note;
