How to type on PDF file on Mac
2 min read
We use PDFs for a variety of purposes today, such as at schools for assignments and question papers, at work for sharing documents, reports, balance sheets, etc., and even for personal use to save a web page as PDF for archival purposes or to fill out tax forms every year when it’s time to talk to the IRS.
PDF has traditionally been known for its inability to make any edits to the content. We changed that when we released PDF Expert. Now, using PDF Expert, you can not only insert text and make edits, but you can also add annotations into your documents. Making these changes to a PDF document is very easy.
PDF Expert has a wide range of functions you can use to work with text in your PDF files without the confusion of how the app works. Want to check out the possibilities?

First, open a PDF file or create a new PDF file by using the ⌘N key shortcut, and then verify that you’ve switched to either the ‘Edit’ or ‘Annotate’ modes available in the upper toolbar. If you need to edit any existing text (for example: change the last name in an agreement or amend the title of an article you are writing with your classmate) you should use the ‘Edit’ mode. On the other hand, if you need toadd a new piece of text to the PDF perhaps to collaborate with your colleagues, or you have to leave some notes for them on the page, then switch to ‘Annotate’ mode.
Next click on the ‘Text’ button and start typing anywhere you tap on the page to add or edit text. You can edit style, font, and size of the text using text settings that you will see on the right side of the page when you click on the ‘Text’ button.
That’s it! You are ready to type, make notes, view, fill out documents, surveys or make changes in the existing text, whether it is just few letters or digits in the invoice, contract, homework, etc. or add huge multi pages notes to an article or an agreement.
