Adobe announced this Wednesday (03) the release of new free tools aimed at PDF files. And, to make life easier for users, all features that have already been released have been gathered in the online PDF page. With the new features, users will be able to protect their files with passwords, split a single document into two parts and even merge multiple PDFs.
According to Adobe, users will be able to take advantage of free PDF viewing, adding comments, sharing documents for reviewing, filling out and signing forms. On this list are other possibilities, including the July 2021 release that released PDF conversion of files created in Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.
Although access does not require payment or subscriptions, some tools are restricted. For some features, for example, access is limited to once a day, 5 times a week. In addition, more advanced platform mechanisms, such as text editing, remain reserved for subscribers of Document Cloud and Creative Cloud services.
Although Adobe was the creator of the PDF format, which stands for Portable Document Format (or Portable Document Format, in free translation), there are numerous other platforms with tools aimed at this format — such as Docusign. Microsoft Edge users can also manage their files in the browser, which allows free griffins and drawings. In fact, as reported by TecMundo in November 2020, it is now also possible to annotate files.
