Most of the tools like Microsoft Word or Excel lets you create PDFs from a word doc or a spreadsheet easily. However, the story takes a completely different turn when it comes to editing these PDF files. Because the same tool that helped you in creating one turns out helpless when you need to edit PDF files.

5 Easy Ways to Edit PDFs Online

Of course, there’s this method of rewriting the word doc, but wouldn’t that be reinventing the wheel, again? Thankfully, there are a quite a number of PDF Editors online which makes editing a cakewalk.

So, without further delay, let’s have a quick look at them.

1. PDF Pro

PDF Pro is a well-rounded tool combining an array of editing tools like text eraser & highlighter, add text, images and signatures and the ability to move text from one portion of the document to the other.

Beyond the usual editing methods, it also boasts of a cool merge tool and a PDF to Word or Image converter. To use this editor, all you need to do is upload the document and choose the appropriate editing method.

PDF Pro is free to use, however, it’s only limited to 3 document per month. So, if it’s a few documents that you need to edit, this is the perfect tool.

2. PDFZorro

PDFZorro is a notch above PDF Pro. Its compatibility is awesome as it’s compatible with all the major platforms — including smartphones. It’s fast, safe and provides an easy way to edit all your PDF files.

Speaking of the editing techniques, it lets you add pages and text, write in free hand or export PDFs into Word or Excel files. What’s more, it even lets you add a couple of pages or letter in between the existing pages.

3. PDFescape

PDFescape offers a unique solution to add Sticky notes and Annotations to PDF files. However, the real power of this tool lies in its page editing tools. Users will be able to white out an area of any page, crop or insert any form of HTML fields like check boxes, radio button, etc.

If in case, the document is a tad sensitive, you can always password protect it. The only drawback is that the PDFs should be less than 10 MB or less than 100 pages.

4. FormSwift

FormSwift not only lets you modify existing documents but also lets you create your own PDF files. And it’s not just any simple PDF, you can have your pick of templates from its huge library. As of today, FormSwift has helped in the creation of over 16 million documents worldwide.

Its best feature is its signature panel for it lets you type, draw or upload signatures — whichever is the easy and convenient way for you.

Moreover, while editing users can insert text, images, check marks and then save and update or email the document at any time.

5. Sejda

Sejda is the mother of all online PDF editing tool. If you are in for some serious PDF work, its huge library of features will surely put a smile on your face.

Whether it’s reorganizing pages in a PDF, splitting a PDF or converting the PDF to any formats — this cool tool takes care of them. What’s more, the process of editing is fast and quick. Sejda also offers a desktop version for small businesses.

Parting Thought

These five tools should help you in getting most of the editing jobs done. However, if you are in need of frequently editing PDF files, a desktop tool will help serve the purpose better.
