In the modern age, people use PDFs a lot. It’s one of the most popular formats for sharing documents online, and it’s also used in many other ways. But did you know that there are tons of different editing options available in PDF? Here are some of them so that you can make your PDFs even more helpful:
You can remove text and images from your PDFs. You can also delete pages and signatures, but you cannot delete the metadata (information about who created it, when it was made and so on).
If you want to add text, images, or other elements to a single page or to multiple pages in your document, you can use Acrobat. You can also add content from existing files on your computer or the web.
You can move a page up, down, left or right. The moved pages will be inserted at the end of the document. You can also insert blank pages between existing ones and delete pages you don’t need anymore.
Rearranging your document’s pages may be necessary if you want to change the order of how things appear in it.
You can use features like rotate PDF online. “Rotating pages of PDF is simplest with Adobe Acrobat online services.”
For example, if an essay about history was originally ordered chronologically but now needs to take on a different form due to new information coming out about its subject matter (e.g., “Hey everyone! Some found out that George Washington never actually chopped down an entire cherry tree!”), this feature will let users rearrange their PDFs, so they’re no longer stuck with what they’ve got before them now.
PDF security options can be applied to a document to prevent unauthorized individuals from viewing and editing the file. PDFs can be sent over email, shared on social media like Instagram, or posted online for anyone to view.
You may want to apply security measures such as printing restrictions, password protection and digital signatures so that others cannot modify your documents and make changes that you don’t want them making.
In order to apply security features in Adobe Acrobat Reader DC Pro or newer versions of the application:
● Open the PDF document in Adobe Acrobat Reader DC Pro or newer versions of the application.
● Select ‘Security’ from under Tools menu > Security tab > General Settings section.
E-signatures use encryption to ensure that the signed document is secure and both parties can verify its authenticity. It’s also easy to use: when you want to sign a PDF electronically, it will automatically launch your e-signature software and take you through signing your name digitally. This option is only available for Acrobat Standard, Pro, or Creative Cloud users; if you’re using another editing tool or programs like Word or Excel, these options won’t be available.
It’s important to understand what each of these editing options does so that you can make the most of them when working with PDF documents. Whether you’re just looking for ways to organize content or need more advanced options like security, there are likely multiple options available for whatever needs might arise.
