Turn Back the Clock on Your Document with ‘Versions’

Have you ever started editing a PDF only to get to a point where you need a version of your document that you had several steps back? Or maybe you’ve been collaborating on a document and want to use a version you had before your colleagues made changes?

Well if you’ve ever been in either of these circumstances, PDFfiller has the perfect tool for you! PDFfiller ‘Versions’ tool keeps track of the changes you make after each document editing session.  Here’s how it works…

You may have noticed that any time you have hit ‘Done’ after editing a document in the PDFfiller editor, a window pops open telling you that a version of your document has been saved along with the date and time.




Next time you open that document in the editor, you can click on the small double arrow on top of the ‘Versions’ bar to the right side of your editing window. When you open the Versions tool, you’ll notice a list of versions labeled with the date and time that you made specific changes to the document.

When you click on one of the dates and times, you will see an orange button appear that says “Restore this Version”. Clicking on the button will reinstate the version of the document you have selected. Keep in mind that even if you reinstate an older version of the document, all the versions will continue to be stored in the list. To return to the current version, you can simply close the Versions tool.





So relax! PDFfiller has got your back when it comes to keeping control of your document changes!  To learn more about how the Versions tool works, check out the following video tutorial.

Customize Your Documents with PDFfiller’s Annotation Tools

Life is unpredictable, and situations can change at a moment’s notice. Sometimes that document you’re working on might have sections that aren’t relevant to you anymore. Or maybe you find the opposite to be true: you need to be sure that your recipients see a certain part of a document when they look it over. And sometimes all you need is a note to help out the people who will be editing your document later on. PDFfiller’s Annotation features give you the ability to emphasize, de-emphasize, and comment on any part of your document.

At the top of the PDFfiller Editor, click on the “Tools” tab. There, you’ll find the find a host of different buttons, each that meet a specific need


The Erase and Blackout tools give you the option of covering up text or images that you don’t want recipients to see, or that might not be relevant to the recipient. The Highlight tool allows you to do the opposite: you can make a line of text, a paragraph, a graphic or even a blank space stand out. For each of these three tools, just click and drag to create a line: white for Erase, black for Blackout, and yellow for Highlight. You can even change the size of the brush with the sliding scale underneath the Tool section.


The Arrow and Line tools let you easily draw attention to a particular part of your document, while Draw functions like a brush tool – there’s even a range of colors you can choose from!


And finally, the Text Box and Sticky tools give you the option of leaving a note for your recipients. Need to provide some clarity on the terms of a legal document? Or maybe your recipients could use some updated information for that sign-up form? Add a text box to the document and start typing, or use a Sticky for a more temporary change.


PDFfiller believes you should have the flexibility to change any part of your PDF at any time. With Annotation features, you can easily change original sections of the PDF file if you need to. Head on over to PDFfiller to see how easy it is to annotate and complete your documents!

Collaborate on Your Bracket for Success

Back in 2009, Netflix launched a $1 million March Madness contest that turned out to be an interesting experiment. The contest was meant to help improve their movie-recommendation system. The top three teams all came up with powerful algorithms for their brackets, but it was only when Netflix combined the best parts of all three theories, that the company saw a significant improvement in its recommendation system — a little over 10% improvement overall.

But what does Netflix have to do with basketball brackets? It shows that many brains are better than one. Statistically you have a better chance to pick that perfect bracket if you get a few brilliant minds to team up with you (or at least some of your friends).
