Topic: add numbered graphics/icons to a pdf floor plan document

I have a floor plan of my company's 5th floor (in pdf format) and as their sysadmin I need to add small little graphics representing numbers in little circles or triangle(those little circles or triangle, I can pick them either from another powerpoint or pdf document that has them already / or from those numbering icons you see in gif or jpeg format around the web/ they are basicly meant to describe printer 1, printer 2, fax 1, fax2, ..etc) throughout the pdf plan. I opened my pdf floor plan using Acrobat Writer 7, and the closer I get is to add notes (via the "Add Note" function) which actually get me the little triangle or circle I need but...I can't put numbers in them...(I know I can edit the note and add ..let's say 1,2 or 3 in it's editing text....but those numbers are never displayed in the triangle / see them only if you move the cursor over the triangle/circle note). I also have the menu TOOLS > Drawing Markups but the problem is the same here: I can add the drawing markups (oval, circle..etc) but cannot get the numbers displayed inside of them. The other closet way is Via the menu TOOLS>DRAWING MARKUPS, TEXT BOX TOOLS: The problem here is that I get my number but in a square box. I would want that number to be in a circle and a triangle instead. PS: I could leave without the copy and paste of the numbering circles or triangle from MS powerpoint/other pdf document if I could just get those numbers in small circles or triangles within the pdf document.
