The easiest way to edit a PDF is through Adobe Acrobat, which is the application created in principle to generate this type of files. Also through Microsoft Word, for those who are used to using it as a text editor. However, both applications require a monthly subscription to offer these types of features: per year, the cost to use Adobe Acrobat can be almost $ 180 today. Fortunately, there are other applications that allow you to edit these types of files for free. Here is how to use Sejda PDF Editor, the best free tool for this purpose, according to DigitalTrends:
1. Although Sejda PDF is a desktop application that also requires subscription, its official website offers a very complete PDF editor, in that sense, the first step is to go to sejda.com. The page welcomes all users with the offer of its online PDF editor, as shown in the image below, inviting them to click on the “Edit a PDF document” button, which is shaped like a green bar and is located at the center of the page.
2. Once you click on “Edit a PDF document”, the user is redirected to another similar page where the button “Upload PDF file” appears, with which the documents to be edited can be loaded. Below this button, the online editor also offers the possibility of creating a PDF starting from a blank document.
3. Whichever option is chosen, after clicking on “Upload PDF file”, the web page opens the online editor so that the user can work on a PDF ready-made or you can create one from scratch, as shown below.
Known by its acronym in English, the PDF (Portable Document Format) has become the most comprehensive option for sending and receiving information. As it is a composite format, it can contain and support a large amount of data beyond text, such as images, hyperlinks, and multimedia elements, and unlike others, it is not at risk of changes during shipping and receipt. Another of its advantages is openness: PDFs are not exclusive to a certain operating system, on the contrary, they work very well with all of them beyond MAC and Windows.
In addition to Sedja PDF Editor, some experts also recommend PDFescape, another free online tool for editing these types of files. Also Foxit PDF Editor, another similar one that also requires a subscription and is more related to the corporate world.
