When can I use a PDF Editor?

Great for students & teachers

Directly annotate PDF files to save time managing documents. Whether you’re a student revising for an upcoming exam or a teacher marking their latest assignments, directly editing a PDF document allows you to make quick and simple annotations.

Make documents more visual with colored text boxes, images, or diagrams. A useful feature for making direct and specific references to information like a graph, or just making the document more engaging and memorable.

Collaborate with colleagues

Online PDF editors are perfect for collaboration. Using PDF is an efficient way of sharing information between your team because they are easily opened on any device, and they keep the original formatting so nothing important is lost.

Imagine you need to make comments or add photos on a new product release that was sent as PDF. While it’s possible to convert your documents between file types to edit on Word, it’s faster to directly annotate and add photos to the same document.
