Did you ever need to edit a PDF document, like that registration or application form that you needed to complete online? In the past, you probably had to print the form and manually edit it, filling its fields, adding pictures, highlighting text, and adding your comments. Then, you would either scan it or send a hard copy to wherever it needed to go. Besides needing a printer and a scanner, the process probably took you far too much time to complete. Now there is a far easier way to edit PDF documents. You can simply use PDFfiller as online document editor! To get started, upload a document to your account or open one that’s already there. Any PDF document is instantly editable in PDFfiller. In the main toolbar, select the Text button, click where you’d like to place the text cursor and type.
To change the position of your text, click the arrow icon in the mini toolbar above, while holding down the mouse button, drag the content where you’d like to place it. Change the text size by using the tree icons above or by selecting from the drop-down list in the formatting toolbar. You can underline, italicize or make your text bold.
You can also change the font type and text color by choosing them from the respective drop-down lists in the formatting toolbar.
To add text to a PDF document, you don’t have to type, you can also copy it from any other document. You can create checkboxes, drop-down lists and fillable fields for text, numbers, signatures, initials, dates, and photos. The technique for adding fields is the same for all field types. Open the Add Fillable Fields tab on the right.
Select the field you need, for instance, the Text field, then drag and drop it where it should be in the document. Resize the field by dragging its corners or edges. Use the text formatting tools to preset the field’s text format including the font, size, color and alignment of text. It will be impossible to change the text format while filling the field.
To delete a fillable field, click on the trash can icon above it. You can also highlight, erase or black out any content, as well as sign and add pictures to any PDF document. When you have finished editing, click the Done button and email, print or save your document. To learn more about how to edit a PDF document online, watch the following video:
