Last updated on June 19, 2019 by

Sending files in PDF format is very common for most of us. If you’re struggling with adding text to a PDF file, like filling out a PDF form that doesn’t have interactive fields or writing comments on a document shared with your friends, there are several useful tools that can help you do this easily. You can even convert your PDF document to Word if it’s more convenient for you.

Here are three good methods that can help you write on PDF documents.

Method 1: Write on a PDF file with Adobe Acrobat Typewriter

Adobe Acrobat has a typewriter tool that allows you to write text on PDF. You can find this function in the toolbar. If you can’t see it in the toolbar, just click “Tools > Typewriter > Enable Typewriter”. Through this, you can add notes and special headings to your PDF document even if the forms aren’t interactive.

Acrobat also has a “Touch-Up Text”¬†feature that allows you to edit your document before sending it. You can find this as the shaded “T” in the toolbar. With this tool, you can fix any selected text. However, if you’re not the one who made the document, it’s only possible to do corrections when you use the same font that was embedded in the text.

Keep in mind that the typewriter tool is applicable for static PDF files only, and it doesn’t work on dynamic files.
