6 Ways PDF Takes The Cake As The Best Text Editing Format

PDF

Text editing is a frequent and recurring task among today’s generations because a lot of things have been digitalized and there is a huge batch of traditional tasks that receive a “digital counterpart” at any moment. With the future heading so hard into a completely digital era, it’s important to know what your best tools are and why you should use one format instead of another. One thing that doesn’t sit well is the fact that many people refuse to take up PDF even though it’s the superior text format.

Not everyone knows just how much better PDF can be because the professional or official vibe that the format gives off can appear a bit daunting in the eyes of regular consumers. PDF enablers like Adobe and their great Adobe Reader suite make the format itself seem even more destined only towards professionals. But anyone can successfully use PDF and improve their performance when editing text. Still not convinced? Here are 6 ways in which PDF is simply the superior solution for editing text.

  • PDF can be protected with a password which means that it offers security measures that aren’t available on other formats and platforms
  • PDF can be used to make more complex schemes and also to expand and build upon simple text ideas, using its plethora of tools such as ruler and grid
  • PDF incorporates complex imagery and support for graphics which can be used to merge imagery and text into one final product, similar to how comic books or magazines might do
  • PDF files maintain their format and customer edits as implemented by a user before sharing it with other users, meaning that whatever you send out is exactly what the other person receives, unlike with other formats where the settings change or get reset
  • PDF files can be read with Google Chrome which makes it incredibly easy to access your information from any computer, be it private or public, as long as you have the actual file, which can’t be said about other formats
  • PDF files are able to be combined into one bigger project which allows for a very smooth “gluing” of multiple files that need to come together as one single project or files

Using PDF isn’t just about using a superior format, but also about how you can make the most of today’s technology in order to come up with more compelling work and max out the potential of a project. Assessing these possibilities will make your work grow in quality considerably.
