Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you needed to edit a scanned PDF document, but you could not do it because you did not have the right software? In the past, you probably had to print the form, fill it out by hand, sign and date it. 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 whole process was just too time-consuming. Now, with pdfFiller you can make a scanned PDF document editable online without downloading and installing any software. To get started, upload a scanned document to your account and open it in the editor. Any PDF document is instantly editable in pdfFiller. You can create checkboxes, drop-down lists and fillable fields for various types of data including 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 add text to any scanned document. 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 scanned document, you don’t have to type, you can also copy it from any other document, e-mail or web page.
