Type Text in PDF Documents

Have you ever needed to type text on documents stored in your Box?

Have you ever needed to edit PDF agreement or proposal stored in your Box? In the past, you probably had to print the document, fill it out, add pictures, highlight text and add 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 far too much time to complete. Now there is a far easier way to edit PDFs right in your Box - you can simply use PDFfiller. PDFfiller’s powerful tools provide a lot of useful features for working with your PDFs. You can type text anywhere on your PDF and edit it according to your needs.
