Make Notes on a PDF

Have you ever needed to make notes or annotations in your PDFs stored in your SharePoint account?

Using pdfFiller, make notes to hint and guide the recipients through a document’s content in your SharePoint account. Alternatively, notes are helpful in terms of your own revisions to a document. pdfFiller has two types of note tools:

  • Standard text boxes included in the document where it is convenient and suitable;
  • Sticky notes attached over the content of the document.

To get started, simply select a Word or PDF document from the list on the left, then right-click and select Edit with pdfFiller from the list.

To change the color of its border, click the color icon that says Box in the formatting toolbar and select the color that you want. To change the color of the box itself click Background and choose the color.
