Instructions and Help about Editable PDF

How to Create an Editable PDF?

We’ve become accustomed to altering .doc files, but not PDFs. They look neat and are great for sharing but not easy to edit. In most cases, the user should change its format before proceeding to make edits. Do you want to avoid long conversions that take a lot of time and don’t always have a good result?

We’re offering a feature that will help you to create an editable PDF. Sound interesting? Then try our service for yourself. Our platform is responsive and can be accessed from your device on Windows or mac. All changes are made online and saved in cloud storage. Thus, PDFs may even be created and edited with the help of your internet-connect mobile device.

How Can I Make Editable PDF?

Waiting to complete a PDF form or blank sample? You may have a scanned PDF that someone shared with you. Just upload it to your pdfFiller profile, and you’ll be ready to edit and complete it in seconds. Open the document in the editor to begin making changes. The steps below will guide you through the remainder of the process:

Find the place you want to insert information.
Click on the Text tool that is available in the upper navigation panel.
Move the text box to the place you want to add text.
Type in the text you need.

Choose the “Create document” option.
Next, you may upload the Word document you created before or choose one of the given patterns. Also, you can use a blank page and add it as PDF pages in any text or data you want.
The text can be changed according to your needs. You may change its font, make it bold, underlined or italic. Highlight it to emphasize key points of interest.
You may also include editable fields here.
