If you send certain PDF files over the Internet, this guide will make your life much easier.

A PDF file, which is short for Portable Document Format, is a specific type of digital file that allows you to send certain content that other users can read, regardless of the software they use to view that type of file. In order for PDF files to adapt to various viewing systems, the text and images in the file cannot be easily modified once they are packaged in PDF format. However, it is not impossible for this to be done.

It doesn’t matter if you use a Mac or Windows device as your primary device, there are tools available to edit the text and graphics within a document that has already been converted to PDF. You can even make this type of change online, as well as convert PDF files back to Microsoft Word documents to edit their content in its originally designed format.

It can be clearly seen that you need to install the program, Adobe Acrobat. First check that it is compatible with the Mac and Windows computers you are using. Not all versions of Adobe Acrobat allow you to edit existing text files once you open your document in this program.

Adobe Acrobat software is classified into Acrobat Standard and Acrobat Pro. The company offers the following three editions in both product lines: Acrobat X, Acrobat XI, and Acrobat DC.

These editions below allow for basic editing of text and content, as well as the ability to export your document to Microsoft Word:

Acrobat XI Standard

Acrobat Standard CC

Acrobat XI Pro

Acrobat Pro DC

Acrobat Pro DC and Acrobat Standard DC offer a number of other editing capabilities that Acrobat XI does not, such as automatic spell checking, advanced photo editing, and editing from an iPad.

Acrobat is one of the most popular ways to edit PDF files online, but it’s not the only method. There is another way to manually modify a file using free software that you can download. You don’t necessarily have to go out and buy the most expensive Adobe software available.

Most other PDF editing websites equip you with just a manual content eraser and new text/image boxes that you can drag and drop anywhere on the page.

Here are some other online editing tools:

FormSwift – Add new content and even an electronic signature.

PDFescape – Add new content and start a new PDF from scratch.

Smallpdf – Add new content and save PDFs to platforms like Google Drive, Dropbox, and even Microsoft Word (more on this feature in a minute).

The tool that suits your PDF will depend on what specifically you are looking to edit and the file size of your document. For example, since Sejda cannot accept PDF files larger than 50 megabytes (MB), please check the size of your document and identify an editing tool that is compatible with your PDF.

You can also compress your PDF to less than 50MB to work with Sejda (true to its name, Smallpdf can reduce the file size of your PDF for you).
