PDF format is frequently used by office workers, students and educators. It is quite popular because of its universality, ease of printing and appealing design. The rise of mobile devices didn’t hurt the PDF format; in fact, it made things easier for everyone. Now, you can send a PDF from your computer to your mobile device in seconds and read the file wherever you are.
There are plenty of apps which allow us to open and read PDF documents on our iOS devices, but not many of them provide the editing option. Today we are going to present you a couple of apps that do.
Adobe Reader is an excellent reader for both desktop and mobile device. Reading the PDF on iPad is a lot easier now, because we can highlight paragraphs, quotations, make annotations and comment directly on the PDF. It certainly makes the whole reading experience a lot better.
So, to open the Editing menu, simply click on the small comment icon in the upper menu of the PDF file. You will be presented with multiple choices.
You can add comments, annotations, highlights or draw things manually on the document.
There is always the Undo function if wish to revert to the previous state, and don’t forget to Save all edits once you finish.
Also, you can change the colors of your highlighted text and Opacity. This can be a pretty useful option as well.
Sometimes we wish to delete part of the text from the PDF document, table or presentation and insert adjustments. That is not possible in Adobe Reader, but it can be performed with Cometdocs mobile apps and free apps for Microsoft Office. The principle is very easy. Convert the PDF to an editable format, and then make the necessary edits. After that you can convert the document back to PDF.
For example, you need to install the PDF to Word converter from the App Store, if you want document edited in Word. If it is a simple table or a presentations, then you might want to consider the PDF to Excel, or PDF to PowerPoint app. See the full list of available apps here. All of the mentioned apps are completely free to use without limits.
Open you PDF in PDF to Word and wait for the conversion to finish. Now open the converted .docx document in Microsoft Word, and make the necessary edits.
After you’re finished, simply open the document share button, and choose the option Send as PDF to convert your file back to the universal PDF format.
