How to Edit a PDF File

Although nearly all computer users are acquainted with the file extension ‘PDF’ or have atleast some idea about it, most of them are clueless when it comes to editing pdf files. If you ever tried to edit a pdf file, you would know it’s not as straightforward as it sounds.


PDF files cannot be edited like text files but there are a few methods (specifically softwares & online tools) that allow you to manipulate a pdf’s content. So let’s discuss how to edit a PDF file:


1. Online Tool:

The most common online tool that allows you to make a few changes to a PDF file is PDF Escape. The best part is that it’s free to use and also has the ability to let you edit a password-protected PDF document in the browser. The only downside is that you can only make minor changes, such as hiding parts of the file and adding annotations or hyperlinks in the content.


2. Offline Software:


If you are not happy with the online editor due to its limitations and want to make some major changes to the PDF document, you can use an advanced PDF editing software called PDF-Xchange. It’s actually a PDF viewer that also acts as an editor and is free to use as well! Allows you to replace images on a PDF file, remove content and add signatures.
