- FAQ: How to Edit Text in PDF
I ran into a problem the other day while working on a Tiiny.host blog post. A PDF hosted on Tiiny needed a change in the title text. So, to fix it, I needed to know how to edit text in PDF files online in the simplest way possible.
After all, it’s a lot of unnecessary hassle to download the PDF, fix the text in an offline PDF editor, and then re-upload the file to make the changes appear on the web. It’s even worse if you must download the file, upload it to an online PDF editor, download the resulting file, and then upload it again to Tiiny.host.
This is ridiculous.
For users of Tiiny.host’s Solo- or Pro-level features, the solution to the problem of making changes in a hosted PDF is as easy as Tiiny’s automated hosting: just sign in, click, and start editing.
Don’t have the Solo or Pro level of Tiiny.host’s services yet?
Then let’s start again from the beginning.
Why can’t I edit the text in my PDF?
PDF (Portable Document Format) files are designed to make editing a digital file difficult, if not impossible. That is what Adobe intended.
PDFs make it possible to send a digital file to someone—or a number of people—and know that it is the same unedited presentation for everyone who views it.
This approach to web publishing at the time was innovative. In 1993, the only way to share text online was through HTML or editable text files. It was way too easy to forge or change a document’s meaning. This led to security and legal troubles for those who needed to distribute static, unchangeable documents.
When the PDF file format was released, Adobe’s costly editing tool, Acrobat, was the only way to create and edit a PDF. This continued until the Portable Document Format became a standard in 2008.
Then, a market exploded for applications that could work with PDF files.
Fast-forward to today, and editing a PDF can be as simple as 1-2-3.
That’s what Tiiny.host knew when they developed their own PDF editing feature.
And you reap all the benefits.
We’ll discuss those in a moment.
