I had a series of pdf documentes annoted and underlined with Okular's review tools at the office laptop that I copied to my home computer. At the home system none of the annotations or other review elements show up. What happened exactly? As I understand it, the reviews are not stored in the document themselves but somewhere else. How can I guarantee that when moving these files around the reviews aren't lost?
Btw, both home and office systems are Ubuntu 12.04.
they are store in an xml file in folder ~/.kde/shar/apps/okular/docdata with an extention of .xml

you might also be able to use:
unfortunately I am not familiar enough with Okular to explain the pros/cons of the 2 methods but minimal testing showed that using "save as":
- notes type 1 could viewed not be edited
- inline inline notes and popup notes using hightlight could be edited/deleted
again minmal testing, so not an answer to base a decision on
I would suggest you use export as "archive as" as it will provide full Okular review functionality
