Is there a program I can use to write on a PDF with my stylus?

I have some forms to fill out. It would be nice to be able to write into the fields and send them digitally rather than print and scan.

The program I always use for this is Xournal. It is in the standard repositories, so can be grabbed as easily as dnf install xournal

Unfortunately, there hasn't been major development on Xournal as long as I've used it. It's rock-solid stable and gets the job done, but it lacks a great many quality-of-life features.

If you want more general note-taking features, an alternative with somewhat more active development is Xournalpp. Xounralpp has a bunch of fancy new features, but does not advertise itself as stable. I have not used it for long enough to give an opinion. Additionally, I don't know of an easy way to install it other than compiling yourself, which was not too much of a hassle last time I did it.
