How do I edit a PDF file? This is the most common question we hear at DocFly. Editing PDF documents can be challenging. A quick search on the Web will show you a wide range of PDF editing options. However, many software services such as Adobe Acrobat are quite expensive.

With our online PDF Editor software, you can edit PDF documents in the cloud. This includes concealing and adding customizable text, highlighting, uploading images, and even placing symbols and shapes within the document. We have designed our software so editing PDF files no longer has to be such a pain. Using our Editor to edit PDF forms?

Then place the cursor on the document and drag it over the area you want to erase. If your page background is not white, you can change the color of the tool to match your page background.
