The other day when I was looking for an online PDF editor, my friend recommended me PDFescape, a totally free online PDF editor. Compared with other online PDF tools, this one requires users no personal info, that is to say, no registration is needed. Whenever users need to edit a PDF file, just upload a PDF file to the app to begin the editing. With PDFescape, users can:


  1. Create a fillable PDF form. This is the standing feature of this free online PDF editor. After launch it, you can create a PDF form with text, checkbox, radio, dropdown list, listbox, and more.
  2. Add text to a PDF file. I tried it, only to find that I only can insert text. And it seems it is not so responsive. After clicking the Text tool, in the text block, I can only insert new text, not being able to remove text.
  3. Annotate a PDF file. This PDF online editor enables users to annotate a PDF file with sticky note, mark up PDF text with highlighter, circle, rectangle, line, and freehand tools.
  4. Insert images and link.
  5. Delete, rotate, and crop PDF pages with PDFescape. When cropping a PDF page, users cannot preview the result.
PDFescape - online PDF editor

PDFescape is the best free Online PDF editor I could find. However, as far as I see, it is not an easy-to-use PDF editing tool. Compared with online PDF editor, I’d prefer the desktop PDF tool, Wondershare PDFelement. In fact, this online PDF editor reacts less responsive as what the desktop does. It takes 4 times longer to edit a PDF online than edit a PDF file on a desktop PDF tool. Besides, Wondershare PDFelement offers more featuresf for users. You can download it right away to have a try.
