Edit and protect your PDFs in the fastest way possible

rewrite PDF

What made the Portable Document Format (PDF) the most popular standard for documents in the world?

The answer? – mass customer demand combined with smart marketing decisions.

Users needed a format for viewing a file that would consistently look the exact same way in any application on a 5, 13 or 27-inch screen. In addition to wide compatibility, the PDF format was specifically designed to decrease the risk of unauthorized changes being made to the original file.


PDFs = convenience + security: But what about editing?

Users all over the world prefer to have their documents in PDF format for the sake of its enhanced security.

That’s why they’re ready to ignore the fact that the logic of a PDF structure makes editing PDFs completely impossible. Or wait…is it really impossible?

Great news – it’s not. But you need to be careful.

If you try converting a PDF to DOC or PPT, the whole document structure can crash at any minute: pages can be lost and paragraphs completely ruined. If that happens, usually you have to go over the entire design and export a new PDF all over again.

Recognizing this problem, PDFfiller became among the first SaaS providers who responded to the challenge by making the structure of a PDF secure while simultaneously making the editing tools more user-friendly.


Try “True Editing” to make changes in your original PDF document

PDFfiller now allows you to customize and manage PDF documents and provides you with the Rewrite PDF feature.

The Rewrite PDF feature enables users to make changes in any of their original PDF documents.

This is what we call “True editing”. True editing allows users to make changes in their original PDFs whereas more simple PDF editors limit access by adding an additional layout on top of the original file for the sake of faster edits.

How True Editing Changes the Way You Handle a Workflow

Hi! I'm Mark

Meet Mark, junior assistant at Awesome Lawyers and Associates. He just received a draft of a contract from his boss with annotated remarks. His task for the next hour is to turn these notes into a contract draft 2.0. The second iteration in PDF will be sent to his boss’s client and signed online, if everyone’s happy with new conditions.

Sure, Mark may use a popular PDF editing software, such as Adobe Acrobat, and skip having to convert the contract to DOCX format. But this kind of software is offered at a premium price, often more for brand name recognition than for anything else. In fact, all its features are available on the web at a much more comfortable pricing.

With Rewrite PDF Mark doesn’t have to download and upload anything. He can open the PDF in the next tab in his browser, make all the edits, save them and send them back with no additional apps whatsoever. So, now his document routine looks like this:
