Basic PDF editing has never been easy until now, as editing PDF files required many licenses and paid software. But now, Adobe has taken a step further to make some free tools available on its website. Among the new tools are options to password protect a PDF, split a single PDF file into two parts, or merge multiple PDFs into one, Adobe mentioned in a blog post.There are also moreadvanced options like editing text in a PDF document; Adobe offers its Document Cloud and Creative Cloud subscription plans.
"The world is a lot right now, and you do a lot in spite of it all. You are always-on — online, on video, on top of it — but your to-do list continues to grow, regardless. If juggling digital documents is part of that problem, Adobe has a solution. We call it Acrobat web," told Adobe in the Blog Post.Earlier, these editing options required a dedicated desktop app, but now Adobe will let users manage various PDF tasks through the browser itself, without the need for a desktop app.
Adobe has also added several new shortcuts users can type into their browsers to access certain features quickly. The shortcuts include PDF.new, Sign.new, CompressPDF.new, ConvertPDF.new, and WordtoPDF.new. Adobe partnered with Google back in July 2020 to test Acrobat shortcuts for the '.new' domain and saw over 10 million clicks since then, as per the blog post.
Users can avail an Acrobat subscription if they need to use more specific PDF tools, such as editing text and images, redacting, or using the ORC feature. With the subscription, users can utilize the tools on desktop, mobile, and Web.
