Did you ever need to edit scanned PDF documents, like a registration or application form that you wanted to complete online?

In the past, for editing a scanned document you probably had to print it and fill fields in by hand. 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 scanned documents. You can simply use pdfFiller as a scanned document editor!

To get started, you should upload a scanned form to your account or open a document that’s already there. When you open the document, you will see the "Edit" toolbar along the top like this:
Choose the "Text" button and start typing on your scanned document. You can move text by dragging the text box. You can also change the font type or size by clicking the corresponding dropdown in the toolbar. To underline your text, to make it bold or italic, use the "U", "B", and "I" icons.
Click the black square to change the color of your text box, and click the tree icons to resize the text. Click the "Signature" or "Picture" button to sign your document or insert an image. You can also edit the document by highlighting, blacking out or erasing any text by or image by clicking the respective button in the "Edit" tab. To edit your document further, click the "Pages" tab on the left or the "Watermark" and the "Versions" tabs on the right.
