How to Edit a PDF Online

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

A PDF file, 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 what software they use to view that type of file. To adapt PDFs to various display systems, the text and images in the file cannot be easily modified once they are packaged in a PDF format. However, it is not impossible that this be done.

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

You can clearly see that you need to install the program, Adobe Acrobat. First verify 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 under Acrobat Standard and Acrobat Pro. The company offers the following three editions on both product lines: Acrobat X, Acrobat XI, and Acrobat DC.

These edits below allow you to edit text and basic content, as well as the ability to export your document to Microsoft Word:

  • Acrobat XI Standard
  • Acrobat Standard DC
  • 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 offer, such as automatic spell checker, advanced photo editing, and editing from an iPad.

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

Most other PDF editing websites equip it 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 PDF files on platforms like Google Drive, Dropbox and even Microsoft Word (more information on this feature in a minute).
The tool that suits your PDF will depend on what you specifically want to edit and the file size of your document. For example, because Sejda cannot accept PDF files larger than 50 megabytes (MB), please check your document size 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 PDF file size for you).
