4.1. Text Tool

To start editing text, activate Edit tools by clicking the  icon in the top toolbar of the iPad and the   icon in the top toolbar of the iPhone.

Please note: PDF Expert app allows to create text annotations (add text notes, fill forms fields, sign documents etc). Tap the Annotate tab on the toolbar to use them. Pro text editing features are available as a separate in-app purchase and allow to edit the contents of the PDF added by the creator of the file and embedded in the file. You can find more information on the Pro features in our blog post. Tap the Edit tab to access the Pro features.

You can only edit text in electronically created PDF files with text layer; if you work with a scanned PDF file where text content is not searchable, the text can not be edited. As a workaround, you can redact the text and create the new next line over the empty area.

  4. Once done, click on the blank space to save the changes.
  5. Select the text to edit it or change its properties.
