Why do I need to edit PDF files?

Portable Document Format was developed by Adobe Systems to save a file’s appearance and layout independently from the hardware, software, or operating systems it originated on.

Portable Document Format and why it changed the world:
  • It combines different types of text into one fixed layout.
  • Many different formats can be added to it like texts, raster images, vector graphics, spreadsheets and more.
  • It easily converts to DOCX, XLSX, PPTX, Text, PNG, JPG and more.
  • Passwords can be applied to it for protecting sensitive information.

In 2008, this document type was standardized, and its popularity started to grow much faster. Now, it’s one of the most commonly used formats for document management. There are lots of specialized services for creating, signing, filling and editing PDFs. With so many choices, the problematic question arises: what is the best service out there for working with PDFs? In this article, we’re going to answer that question together.

How do I edit PDF?

Some years ago, the only program for viewing and editing Portable Document Format was Adobe Reader, but things have changed. Now there are hundreds, thousands of different software for working with PDF files. For example, Mac’s Preview allows you to edit PDF; add text, draw on it and even create and apply an electronic signature. Windows has no default software for PDF editing, but you can view them using a web browser. Just about any of Adobe’s programs work, but each one of them requires you to pay a subscription. And for many, that’s not convenient.

The other powerful advantage of Portable Document Format over other file types is the opportunity to edit PDF online. There are a lot of programs out there (both paid and free) that let you edit right from your browser without the need to install software.

How to make PDF editing more beneficial

Using PDFs for document management allows you to eliminate the paper mess in your office and at home — no more need for printers, scanners, filers, wet stamps, pens or even paper.

Literally, hours of work turns into minutes with the help of PDF. What if you could do much more than just add text boxes and signatures? What if you could change and highlight texts, move and replace graphics, leave comments in documents, just like in Microsoft Word?

airSlate is more than the usual PDF editing software. Editing PDF is just the foundation. Automate all your document processes: from filling out tax forms, sending approval requests to full-on contract negotiation. airSlate supports multiple integrations, so using it with third-party services like CRM/ERP systems, cloud storages and email marketing isn’t a problem.

airSlate is an all-in-one platform for business process automation. Edit PDF documents from the same platform you automate your workflow in.
